ModuCare® One-a-Day Waxtabs
Nature’s Harmony® Moducare® restores, strengthens and balances the immune system. Moducare® is a patented blend of the plant nutrients sterols and sterolins in a clinically proven ratio of 100:1. This formulation has been found to be effective at balancing the immune system—enhancing an underactive immune system and/or modulating an overactive one. The new waxtabs™ dosage form provides all the benefits of Moducare® in a time-released format for once a day convenience.
Helps support a healthy immune system balance.
Nature’s Harmony® Moducare® is an excellent source of plant sterols. These beneficial plant fats, also known as phytosterols, are found in fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Phytosterols offer immune-enhancing properties and can activate the cells that regulate immunity. Phytosterols also have anti-inflammatory properties and can help lower the release of the stress hormone cortisol. These combined benefits of phytosterols offer significant support to daily immune system health.
Food Sources: In limited amounts in vegetables.
Causes of Deﬁciency: Weakened immune function from stress, illness, poor diet and certain prescription medications
Symptoms of Deﬁciency: Frequent colds or infections, autoimmune conditions, allergies, fatigue.
HOW IT WORKS:
Moducare® is considered a daily supplement and should be taken as long as you want to aid the immune system to be balanced. Sterols and sterolins do not “fix” the immune system, but provide the nutrients needed to help keep it in balance. They are absorbed in the small intestine and are then transported to the cell lipid (fat) membrane. Here, they are beneficial to the messenger system within the cell and modulate specific immune factors that can help control disease conditions.
Research on sterols has been underway since the 1920s. Dr. Patrick Bouic, PhD, at Stellenbosch University in South Africa, has been researching the exact combination of sterols and sterolins found in Moducare® for over a decade. There has been extensive testing and clinical trials, including double-blind, placebo-controlled studies. This research has shown Moducare® can increase natural killer cell activity, improve the activity of T cells and may also be effective in the management of chronic inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and seasonal allergies. Several studies on plant sterols and sterolins have been published in international medical journals.
Adults and adolescents: Take 1 tablet daily with food. Tablet must be swallowed whole and not chewed.
Nature’s Harmony® Moducare is well tolerated and considered safe. However, when the immune system becomes balanced, some sensitive individuals may experience symptoms that indicate the body is trying to rid itself of toxins. These symptoms are temporary and may include digestive problems, rashes, headaches and fatigue.
INTERACTIONS AND SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS:
There are no known interactions with Moducare® and any natural supplements. There is no conclusive evidence to suggest an interaction with medication. Not to be used by organ and tissue transplant recipients, including bone marrow and corneal transplants, individuals with a history of diabetes or multiple sclerosis, unless on the advice of and under the direct supervision of a health care practitioner. Do not use if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or have sitosterolemia. Some individuals may experience temporary digestive problems, rashes, headache and fatigue.
The key difference between Moducare® and other immune system aids such as echinacea is that echinacea only stimulates the immune system, while Moducare® balances it. Furthermore, echinacea is not recommended for prolonged use or for people with autoimmune conditions. Moducare® , on the other hand, is a daily immune support nutrient and may be used by people with autoimmune conditions. It is suggested to take Moducare® for two to three months before evaluating whether it is effective for you.
