Promotes post-exercise immune balance
• Helps prevent post-exercise cortisol spike
• Keeps immune system strong during long-term strenuous workout programs
• Best used: after exercise
Studies have shown that while moderate exercise is essential to overall health, strenuous, long-term activity can compromise an athlete's immune system. MODULATE contains specific plant-sterols that can help balance and strengthen the body's normal immune response and keep you doing what you love most.
MODULATE is a blend of plant sterols and sterolins that help promote a balanced immune system. Plant sterols – phytosterols and their glycosides (also known as phytosterolins) – are fats that are present in fruits, vegetables, and medicinal plants. Beta-sitosterol (BSS) and its glycoside (BSSG) are the most abundant of these plant sterols. BSS and BSSG, even at very low levels, have been shown to enhance the activity of various cells in the body recognized as having positive immune system activity.
MODULATE supplementation also helps maintain a normal ratio of the adrenal hormones cortisol and DHEA, subsequently buffering negative stress responses. MODULATE also improves the balance of T-helper 1 to T-helper 2 cells, which can result in enhanced cellular immunity and the down-regulation of overactive immune responses.
The potential of the active ingredient in MODULATE to promote immune health in a group of volunteers participating in an ultra-marathon was investigated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Subjects in the phytosterolin group maintained a healthier immune response compared to the group taking the placebo. The benefit to the immune system is believed to be because cortisol levels did not increase in response to the exercise stress in those taking MODULATE's active ingredient.
