FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As we age, our once vigorous immune systems begin to decline. The result is immune senescence, which has been linked to problematic outcomes in aging. Life Extension® researchers have developed an innovative, dual-mechanism formula designed to combat immune senescence.
Immune Senescense Protection Formula™ is composed of two botanical compounds that support both adaptive (naive T cells) and innate (macrophages and neutrophils) immune response cells. Together, these nutrients work in a complementary fashion to rejuvenate both major arms of the aging immune systems through unique mechanisms.
The botanical compounds, Cistanche and Reishi have been combined into one powerful, dual-extract formulation, specifically created for year-round support of the aging immune system.
Scientists have discovered that the echinacoside found in Cistanche plant extract simulates the development of naive T cells and leads to a lower amount of memory T cells, thereby creating a more balanced immune response. Cistanche also increases natural killer cell activity, resulting in a 15% life span increase in animal research.
The numerous bioactive components of the Reishi mushroom extract exert powerful effects that may rejuvenate many of the factors of immune senescence. Reishi extracts boost the function of innate immune cells, the immune system's first line of defense.
Suggested retail price for 60 vegetarian capsules of Immune Senescense Protection Formula is $40.
