Immune Support Formulas

Broad Spectrum Immune Support

 

Immunoplex 90 capsules

Immune function
   Fight infections
   Strengthen the immune system
   Support thymus gland function
   Decrease frequency and duration of colds and flu
Immunoplex is a comprehensive immune formula designed with herbs and thymus glandular extract. It is used to restore proper immune function by fortifying the body’s natural defenses through correcting immune deficiencies and a hypersensitive immune system.

Our immune system naturally identifies and eliminates infections and protects us against colds and flu. When our immune system is weakened due to stress, lack of sleep, high sugar intake, vitamin/mineral deficiencies, and inadequate hydration to flush out toxins, one becomes more susceptible to illness.

Immunoplex provides full spectrum immune support through enhanced immune defenses against infections, boosts immune organ function (thymus, lymph, spleen, and bone marrow), increases WBC activity, and supports a reduction in the hyperactive immune response.

Probiotic 7-in-1 90 capsules

Intestinal Flora, Female and Immune Health

   7 unique strains (4 human strains)
   Enhances mucosal immune defense
   Restore intestinal flora
   Maintains intestinal barrier

Probiotic 7-in-1 has been uniquely designed to incorporate seven different strains of healthy bacteria. The blend of Lactobacilli, Lactococci, Streptococci, and Bifidobacteria probiotics produce a broad spectrum approach to populate the small intestine through to the colon, thus balancing the entire intestinal flora. Since the beneficial probiotic effect is strain dependant, with each strain serving a specific inhibition purpose, this combination acts synergistically to control opportunistic (pathogenic) bacteria and support the body’s natural defense system.
  • Post-antibiotic and gut flora support
  • 7 beneficial strains
  • 1.9 billion active cells
  • No refrigeration required
Our gut is home to trillions of microorganisms, with over 400 different species co-existing within the gastrointestinal tract. Beneficial bacteria are absolutely essential for life; with digestion of food, manufacturing and absorption of nutrients, detoxification, and the proper functioning of the highly evolved localized immune system dependant on them. Restoring a balanced intestinal flora with probiotics will lead to proper digestion, healthy gastrointestinal tract, regularity, and a strong immune system.

The Institut Rosell, a pioneer in probiotic manufacturing, produces Probiotic 7-in-1 using specialized technology to ensure probiotic survival and biological activity. They have developed a shelf stable process which dramatically enhances the survival rate of probiotic bacteria at room temperature (therefore no refrigeration required) and strains of probiotics that resist the negative actions of oxygen, gastric acid, and bile salts, thereby ensuring balanced colonization of these strains throughout the ileum and colon.

"Probiotic 7-in-1 is a product I love. Patients like the price and it works!"

Serrapeptase 120,000 SU 60 caps

Systemic & Mucolytic Enzyme, Pain, Biofilm

 Breaks up mucous in sinus, lung, GI tract

 Reduce chronic inflammation 

 Dissolve bacterial biofilm matrix, diminish infection potential

Serrapeptase is an proteolytic and mucolytic enzyme derived from the bacteria Serratia mercesans. As a broad spectrum systemic enzyme, it works to break down inflammation and break up excess mucous and congestion. It is used to support healthy respiratory and sinus function, as well as muscle, joint and overall tissue health

Serrapeptase is used in the management of pain and inflammation, through reducing capillary permeability and regulating immune cell migration from the lymph nodes to inflamed and injured tissues. This enzyme breaks down inflammation caused by abnormal proteins and is able to dissolve by-products (damaged and dead tissue) of the healing response, without harming healthy tissue.

As a concentrated natural proteolytic enzyme supplement, our Serrapeptase is one of the strongest in the world, unrivaled with a potent 120,000 SPU (serratiopeptisdase units) per capsule. In addition, it is enterically-coated to maximize efficacy, allowing the enzymes to survive the acidic conditions of the stomach, leading to greater absorption.

Serrapeptase (also known as serrapeptidase, serratiopeptidase and serratia peptidase) is derived from a species of enterobacteria originally found in the intestine of silkworms. This bacterium, Serratia mercesans, produces the enzyme serrapeptase to enable the silkworm to dissolve its silken cocoon and emerge as a moth after metamorphosis. Serratia mercesans is now grown in cultures to produce serrapeptase by fermentation, thus is suitable for vegetarians.

Vitamin D3 Drops 15 ml

Bone and Immune Health

    Strong bones & teeth
    Immune function
    Osteoporosis

Vitamin D3 is needed for development, growth, and maintenance of strong bones and teeth. It is required for calcium regulation, by promoting absorption of calcium and phosphorus from the small intestine and kidneys to be deposited in the bones for mineralization. Additionally, when vitamin D is combined with calcium intake and regular weightbearing exercise, it helps reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis. Vitamin D3 is also required for proper immune function and can modulate both adaptive and innate immune responses.

Studies show vitamin D3 is essential for long-term health and it is important to prevent risk of vitamin D deficiency. Deficiency can be associated with loss of bone density, osteoporosis and ‘brittle’ bones, lower back pain, and muscle weakness. It can also be associated with an increased susceptibility to infection and autoimmune disease. Deficiency may occur if one does not get enough vitamin D in their diet or has limited exposure to the sun (due to working indoors, avoiding or protecting from the sun, or living in the northern regions of Canada).

There are several sources of vitamin D including: synthesis in the skin after exposure to the sun’s UV rays, select foods, fortified foods, and high quality supplementation.

Biomed's Vitamin D3 drops provide a quality high dose with 1000 IU per drop, with a natural lemon flavour in healthy MCT (Medium chain triglycerides) oil base.

Over 70% of Canadians are vitamin D deficient, proving that it is difficult to get enough vitamin D from direct sun exposure and food alone. A reliable and consistent source of vitamin D (often through supplementation) is necessary to prevent risk of deficiency. Optimal vitamin D levels are essential for health throughout all ages and stages of life.

Vitamin D requirements* change throughout life and according to risk factors:
  • Infants (up to 1 year): 400 IU daily (upper limit 1000 – 1500 IU)
  • Children (1 to 9 years): 600 IU daily (upper limit 2500 – 3000 IU)
  • Pregnancy and lactation: 600 IU daily (upper limit 4000 IU)
  • Adults: 800 IU daily (upper limit 4000 IU)
