Vital Immunity® uses several clinically-studied ingredients to support the immune system and Phase 2 detoxification‡:
- BroccoRaphanin™ is supported by clinical data that shows it helps the body’s natural detoxification process and immune protection by supporting the body’s natural defenses. This activated form of BroccoRaphanin™ contains stabilized myrosinase, an enzyme important for the optimal conversion of the active ingredients.‡
- Milk Thistle extract provides silymarin which supports liver function. Silymarin also provides antioxidant protection and stimulates protein synthesis on a cellular level. The liver is an important organ in detoxifying blood and supporting a healthy immune system.‡
- Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) has been shown to promote healthy phase I cytochrome P450 detoxification enzymes and phase II detoxification enzymes such as glutathione
S-transferase, which supports the liver’s ability to process and eliminate harmful compounds. I3C is also believed to contribute to healthy cellular support.‡
- Diindolylmethane, or DIM, is a component of indole-3-carbinol, and is found in vegetables of the brassica family such as broccoli, kale, and cauliflower.‡
