HEALTHY AND STRONG IMMUNE SYSTEM
How the immune system works and
how to improve it in 30 days!
Inside your body there is an amazing protection
mechanism called the immune system. The immune system
was designed to defend you against millions of bacteria,
viruses, toxins and parasites that are always trying
to invade your body. To understand the power of the
immune system, you have to look at what happens to anything
once it dies. Now that sounds disgusting but it shows
you something very important about your immune system.
When something dies, its immune system along with all
of the organ systems in the body shut down. In a matter
of hours the body is invaded by all sorts of bacteria,
parasites and other small living creatures. None of
these microbes are able to get in when your immune system
is working well, but once the immune system stops or
is not functioning well the door is wide open. Once
you die it only takes a few weeks for these organisms
to completely dismantle your body and carry it away.
Obviously your immune system is doing something amazing
to keep all of that dismantling from happening when
we are alive. Your immune system works around the clock
in thousands of different ways, but it does its work
largely unnoticed. The one thing that causes us to really
notice our immune system is when it fails for some reason.
We also notice it when it does something that has a
side effect we can see or feel.
- When you get a cut, all sorts of bacteria and viruses
enter your body through the break in the skin. When
you get a splinter you also have a sliver of wood
as a foreign object inside your body. Your immune
system responds and eliminates the invaders while
the skin heals itself and seals the puncture. In some
cases when the immune system is depressed or not working
well the cut gets infected. It gets inflamed and will
often fill with puss. Inflammation and puss are side
effects of the immune system trying to do its job.
- When you are bit by a mosquito, you get a red itchy
bump. It too is a visible sign of your immune system
- Each day you inhale millions of germs (bacteria
and viruses) that are floating in the air. Your immune
system generally deals with them without a problem.
If our immune system is not working at peak performance
you will develop an infection like a cold or flu.
A cold or flu is a visible sign that your immune system
has failed to protect you. Because your immune system
is still working at a low level it will take longer
to recover from these infections.If they are particularly
bad infections, you may die. Remember, infections
are the number one cause of illness and the number
four cause of death after cancer, heart disease and
stroke. It is interesting to note that both cancer
and heart disease can be the result of a poor immune
- Each day you eat millions of germs, most of which
die in the saliva or the acid of the stomach. If some
organisms get through, you could end up with food
poisoning. This is a breach of the immune system resulting
in diarrhea or vomiting. The Centers For Disease Control
And Prevention predict that each year over 2 million
Americans will develop some form of food poisoning
with over 70,000 deaths. Most of these deaths are
the result of a poor immune system.
- There are also all kinds of human ailments that
are caused by the immune system working in unexpected
or incorrect ways that cause problems. For example,
some people have allergies. Allergies are really just
the immune system overreacting to certain stimuli
that other people don't react to at all. Some people
have type 1 diabetes, which is caused by the immune
system inappropriately attacking cells in the pancreas
and destroying them. Some people have rheumatoid arthritis,
which is caused by the immune system acting adversely
in the joints. Certain cancers are thought to be prevented
by your immune system reacting to the production of
rogue cells that are the precursor to cancer. You
body is constantly producing these “error” cells and
a strong immune system will remove the cancer precursor
cells from your body.
- People with weakened or compromised immune systems
such as cancer patients that have had chemotherapy
and radiation for cancer, the elderly and the very
young, AIDS patients and those with autoimmune diseases
are more susceptible to infections that may become
Wonderful Immune System . . .
One of the funny things about the immune system is
that it has been working inside your body for your entire
life but you probably don't know much about it.
The most obvious part of the immune system is what
you can see. For example, skin is an important part
of the immune system. It acts as a primary boundary
between germs and your body. Part of your skin's job
is to act as a barrier in much the same way we use plastic
wrap to protect food. Skin is tough and is generally
impermeable to bacteria and viruses. The epidermis (top
layer) contains special cells called Langerhans cells
that are an important early warning component of the
immune system. The skin also secretes antibacterial
substances. These substances explain why you don't wake
up in the morning with a layer of mold growing on your
Your nose, mouth and eyes are also obvious entry points
for germs. Tears and mucus contain an enzyme (lysozyme)
that breaks down the cell wall of many bacteria. Saliva
is also anti-bacterial. Since the nasal passage and
lungs are coated with mucus, many germs are not killed
immediately but rather trapped in the mucus and eliminated.
These are the first line defenses against the invasion
of bacteria and bacteria.
Once inside the body, germs deal with the immune system
at a different level which involve the thymus, spleen,
lymph system, bone marrow, white blood cells, antibodies,
the complement system and certain hormones. Cells from
these organs all have a special job to do, but it is
beyond the scope of this booklet to explain all of their
When The Immune System Makes
A Mistake . . .
Sometimes the immune system makes a mistake. One type
of mistake is called autoimmunity: the immune system
for some reason attacks your own body in the same way
it would normally attack a germ. Many diseases are caused
by immune system mistakes. Juvenile-onset diabetes is
caused by the immune system attacking and eliminating
the cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. Some
forms of rheumatoid arthritis is caused by the immune
system attacking tissues inside the joints. Other forms
are caused by bacterial infections in the joints caused
by a poorly responsive immune system.
Allergies are another form of immune system error.
For some reason, in people with allergies, the immune
system strongly reacts to an allergen that should be
ignored. The allergen might be a certain food, or a
certain type of pollen, or a certain type of animal
fur. For example, a person allergic to a certain pollen
will get a runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing, etc. These
symptoms are the result of the release of histamine
from the mast cells in the nasal tissues. Of course,
we take anti-histamines to reverse the action of the
histamine and the allergy symptoms.
Balancing the immune system so that it is neither over
or under active usually relieves allergies altogether.
A Healthy Immune System . .
As you can see from our discussion, it is extremely
important for you to have a good immune system A response
mediated immune system will help protect you from a
long list of infectious and non-infectious diseases.
Global Biotechnologies, Inc. has spent several years
developing and testing Immunol, a revolutionary
multi-component immune enhancing formulation that will
give your immune system a new and powerful response
mechanism to help you fight infections and other immune
mediated disorders. The active ingredients in Immunol
have been the subject of over 50 clinical trials and
have been the subject of over 500 peer reviewed scientific
papers. The findings suggest that there is not a better
combination of ingredients for immune system enhancement
either over-the-counter or by prescription.
Lets look at the ingredients in Immunol
and explore how they work, and the clinical evidence
to support its effectiveness.
Bovine Colostrum - Bovine Colostrum is the immune
rich portion of cows milk that is present only in the
first few hours after the cow calves. The colostrum
collected for Immunol is from the first
6 hours of lactation after the calf is born. This colostrum
is essentially the same as human colostrum which is
important to newborn humans. With colostrum growing
in popularity, it is important that we understand how
it works and the differences between colostrums. Colostrum
supports the human organism in two main ways. First,
it's multiple immune factors and natural antimicrobial
factors provide strong support for the immune system.
Second, its many growth factors offer a broad spectrum
boost to the body to encourage optimum health and healing.
Studies show that colostrum contains powerful immune
factors (Immunoglobulins, Lactoferrin, Cytokines and
Interferon) that work to restore potent immune function.
Immunoglobulins are large proteins soluble in saline
but not water. Immunoglobulins represent more than 40%
of the proteins found in our blood serum. There are
five classes of immunoglobulins; IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG
and IgM. Colostrum is rich in all five of these Immunoglobulins.
IgA is found in blood serum, tears, saliva and mucous
membranes. IgG (the most abundant immunoglobulin found
in all mammalian colostrum) is carried in the circulatory
and lymphatic systems, where it helps neutralize toxins
and other unwanted invaders. IgD and IgE are highly
antiviral, antibacterial and are active during allergies
and allergic reactions. IgM is a powerful antibacterial
agent and acts as a natural antibiotic. Colostrum also
contains PRP (polyproline-Rich-Polypeptides) shown in
medical studies to boost an under active immune system.
PRP helps restore the thymus gland to optimal functioning
capability. The thymus produces vital T-cells which
fight viruses and unwanted antigenic substances. PRP
found in colostrum also helps balance an overactive
immune system present in autoimmune diseases - conditions
where the body actually attacks itself. This has tremendous
implications in illnesses such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,
Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis,
Lupus, Scleraderma as well as allergies.
Finally, Colostrum contains Lactoferrin, which has
been shown in numerous clinical studies to be a potent,
broad spectrum natural antibiotic and anti-viral agent.
Lactoferrin is also a powerful antioxidant which inhibits
the harmful effects of free radicals. Since almost all
infectious and degenerative diseases are immune system
mediated, a poor immune system is a problem. People
who are in risk groups (the elderly, the very young,
cancer patients who have undergone chemotherapy or radiation
and those with autoimmune diseases) generally have poorly
functioning immune systems and are susceptible to many
health problems. Colostrum also has a myriad of other
growth factors. These seemingly miraculous substances
have been shown to benefit tissue repair, boost the
bodies ability to metabolize fat and build lean muscle
tissue, balance blood sugar and brain chemical levels
and even repair damaged DNA and RNA.
In order for colostrum to be effective, it must be
collected from a multigenerational herd with a wide
catalog of different immunoglobulins, cytokines and
growth factors. The colostrum used in Immunplex‘ is
standardized for immunoglobulin concentration, screened
for 36 antibiotics and 24 pesticides and dioxin. The
organochlorines screened for include Lindane, BHC, Heptachlor
and metabolites, DDT and metabolites, Mirex, Methoxychlor,
toxaphene, chlordane and PCB's.

viral invaders. A wide range of antiviral factors were
found to be present in colostrum."

BETA 1, 3 GLUCAN
Beta 1,3 Glucan has a long scientific history and reference
list including literally hundreds of peer reviewed scientific
Research originated in the 1940's with the preparation
of a crude yeast preparation called Zymosan. It was
reported that this preparation would stimulate non-specific
immunity. At that time, it was unknown which element
of this crude preparation was able to stimulate non-specific
immunity. In the 1980's, a Harvard University study
described the mode of action of this material in stimulating
the immune system: there is a specific receptor for
yeast Beta 1,3 Glucan on the surface of certain cells
called macrophages. When activated, macrophages stimulates
the cascade of events that turns the body into "an explosive
arsenal of defense."
Macrophages play an essential role in the initiation
and maintenance of the immune response. From an evolutionary
point of view, the macrophage is the oldest and most
consistently preserved immunologically competent cell
known; not only in humans and higher animals but lower
forms which have no other immunological effector cells,
have macrophages. In order to function defensively,
the macrophages must pass through a state of activation
which involves certain morphological changes. Also,
most importantly, a whole sequence of metabolic changes
occur which results in the production of a series of
cytokines. They act as internal regulators of the immune
system. Activation can be initiated by a variety of
different stimuli such as endotoxin, bacteria, viruses
or chemicals. However, these activators can be too toxic
or pathogenic to be useful. Beta 1,3 Glucan, on the
other hand, is orally effective, complete safe and non-toxic,
and may be one of the most powerful stimulators of the
There are several different types of Beta 1,3 Glucan
with different levels of activity. The most active type,
however, is Beta 1,3 Glucan from the yeast cell wall.
The activated macrophage is a veritable powerhouse.
A macrophage can recognize and kill tumor cells nonspecifically
as well as remove foreign debris. It also produces a
number of essential cytokines that are able to stimulate
the immune system in general and boost bone marrow production.
Some individuals, because of age, chronic infection
or poor nutrition, have a compromised immune defense
system. They are susceptible to all of the following
problems: arthritis, reduced wound healing capacity,
reduced bone marrow proliferation with resulting lowered
white cell counts and anemia; increased incidence of
cancers; and increased incidence of viral, fungal and
It is well understood that one of the main elements
of the aging process is a lowering of the effectiveness
of the immune function. All of the problems mentioned
above occur with aging. In addition, the immune system
is impaired by numerous environmental factors such as
UV radiation, food preservatives, dioxin and antibiotics.
It is well documented that generally healthy athletes
frequently suffer from influenza or pneumonia following
heavy periods of intense exercise. The same immune suppression
is observed in people with stress related diseases.
Under these influences, the number of macrophages available
are reduced and are unable to participate in the immune
cascade, which causes even deeper immunosuppression.
Beta 1,3 Glucan has been shown to both stimulate and
activate macrophage cells which will counter these negative
The first human study on Beta 1,3 Glucan's systemic
effect was in the 1980's on advanced HIV infection.
Even in these deeply immunodeficient individuals, an
increase in serum cytokines, IL-1, IL-2 and interferon
Results of another clinical trial showed a significant
mortality decrease from infectious complications in
severe trauma patients. Beta 1,3 Glucan is also a free
radical scavenger. It is able to protect blood macrophages
from free radical attack during and after radiation,
allowing these cells to continue their important functions
in the irradiated body and release factors important
to the restoration of normal bone marrow production.
These important free radical scavenger assays were repeated
in different models which confirmed the antioxidant
effect. In light of what is known about the potential
of free radicals to accelerate aging, cause cancer and
other diseases, this particular effect of Beta 1,3 Glucan
is especially important.
An independent study at Baylor College of Medicine
in the laboratory of Dr. Phil Wyde also indicates the
oral effectiveness of Beta-1,3 Glucan in stimulating
non-specific immunity. Peritoneal macrophages doubled
their phagocyte activity in mice fed with Beta-1,3-Glucan.
The systemic effect of its oral application is comparable
to that achieved by injection, which makes the material
a unique and very valuable oral immuno-stimulent.
When Beta-1,3 Glucan was added to the antibiotic regimen
in animals challenged with different bacterial pathogens
(S. aureus, Klebsiella, E. coli and others) and viral
pathogens (Herpes Virus), a reduced amount of
antibiotics and antivirals was needed to cope with the
infection. Beta-1,3-Glucan also has an anti fungal effect,
shown in studies with Canadian albicans. Such a broad
anti-infective spectrum can be explained only by the
fact that the immuno-stimulation produced by this unique
material is nonspecific.
Continuing research in the application of Beta 1, 3
Glucan revealed that it also increases the effectiveness
of other oral cholesterol-reducing agents, such as niacin
and Lopid. Research has also demonstrated the anti-diabetic
effect of IL-1 cytokines which increases insulin production
causing the lowering of blood glucose levels. Activated
macrophages are the main source of IL-1 in the body
and its production can be boosted by yeast Beta 1,3
Glucan supplementation. Keeping in mind the extremely
high rate of atherosclerotic complications and the extraordinary
requirement for antioxidants in diabetic patients, yeast
Beta 1,3 Glucan is an obvious adjuvant for an improved
lifestyle in these conditions.
Multitudes of studies repeatedly show that yeast Beta
1,3 Glucan is a powerful immune stimulator, a “Biological
Defense Modifier” and the benefits of Beta 1,3 Glucan
as a nutritional supplement are huge.
The aging process has been defined as “the sum total
of life's physical embarrassment due to adverse conditions”.
Yeast Beta 1,3 Glucan may well be the first and only
true anti-aging supplement. It is a defense against
events such as infection, tumors and radiation damage,
an adjunctive to the positive effects of antioxidants,
lipid balance enhancers, antibiotics and other therapeutics.
The result is improved general health which means greater
enjoyment of life, fewer infirmities, less time and
money required for medical needs and dramatic savings
in health related expenditures over time. The FDA classifies
Beta 1,3 Glucan as safe and nontoxic and it has no known
In summary, some of the biological events illustrating
the stimulation by Beta 1,3 Glucan are:
- Activation of macrophages, expressing increased
nonspecific phagocytic activity allowing macrophages
to destroy pathogens more efficiently, preventing
- Release of important cytokines like IL-1, IL-2,
among others, which initiates an immune cascade and
triggers other cell lines, such as T-cells and the
release of Colony Stimulating Factor which boosts
bone marrow production.
- Cholesterol reduction through cell activation and

Says About Glucan
"Glucan (Beta 1,3) has been shown to enhance macrophage
function dramatically, and to increase nonspecific host
resistance to a variety of bacterial, viral, fungal,
and parasitic infections."

Arabinogalactan (AG) is a naturally occurring botanical
extract from the larch tree. Arabinogalactan is the
active ingredient in Echinacea and other medicinal herbs.
It properties have been extensively studied by scientists
around the world.
Two basic mechanisms have been proposed to explain
why AG enhances immune system performance.
- First, scientists have found that AG blocks bacteria
and viruses from attaching and binding to cell membranes
of the liver and other organs, thus preventing infection
- Second, AG has been shown in both human and animal
studies to enhance the number of immune cells present
in the blood. This is especially true for macrophages,
and immune cell known for its capability to remove
foreign material from the blood stream.
In tests on human blood, at the University of Minnesota,
the specific arabinogalactan used in Immunol
was shown to be more effective than Echinacea at stimulating
macrophages and other components of the immune system.
Further more, while the effectiveness of Echinacea decreases
as the dosage increased, no decline is seen with AG.
The receptor specificity of arabinogalactan is not well
characterized. Cultures of blood mononuclear cells treated
with AG showed enhanced natural killer activity against
tumor cells. The Natural Killer (NK) activity was not
a direct response to the AG exposure but rather the
AG stimulated a cascade to cytokines in this immune
stimulation network. The effect of AG in conjunction
with the other immune stimulating factors in Immunol
make it very efficacious product.
Lactoferrin is an immune chemical found in the human
body usually in secretions like tears, perspiration,
the lining of the intestinal tract, and the mucous membranes
that line the nose, ears, throat and urinary tract;
any place that is vulnerable to infection. Lactoferrin
is part of your bodies shield against infection. The
highest concentrations are found in colostrum, secreted
in the first six hours after birth in mother's milk.
The purpose of adding lactoferrin is to boost the overall
immune stimulating capacity as well as hinder tumor
growth and metastasis, enhance natural killer cell activity,
activate neutrophils, prevent bacterial overgrowth,
help prevent viruses from penetrating healthy cells,
reduce inflammation and inhibit free radical production.
