Why These Natural Ingredients?
A strong immune system is integral to overall health and wellbeing. Maintaining a strong
immune system can often be a challenge in today’s world- high stress levels, poor diet,
lack of sleep and environmental pollutants can all slow down the immune response.
WholeMune’s primary active ingredient is Wellmune WGP®- a natural beta 1,3/1,6
glucan derived from the cell wall of a proprietary strain of baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces
cerevisiae). Once swallowed, immune cells in the gastrointestinal tract take up Wellmune
WGP® and transport it to immune organs throughout the body. Specific immune cells
called macrophages digest Wellmune WGP® into smaller fragments and slowly release
them over a number of days. The fragments then bind to neutrophils (white blood cells),
via complement receptor 3 (CR3).
Neutrophils are the most abundant immune cells in the body, accounting for 60-70% of
all immune cells. The activation of neurotrophils by Wellmune WGP® fragments allows
these cells to move faster throughout the body, resulting in a significant boost in immune
