del-IMMUNE V® is a natural immune modulator. An immune modulator works to turn immune response on and off as needed. This is the same ingredient formulated in del-IMMUNE V® supplements for humans. Derived from the cells of a unique probiotic strain, Lactobacillus rhamnosus DV - NRRLB-68023, del-IMMUNE V® acts as a first responder when support from the innate immune system is needed. This strain of probiotic has been shown in decades of scientific research to provide immediate immune support. Just as in humans, del-IMMUNE V® activates your pet’s innate immune response, initiating an immediate immune attack against foreign invaders while also supporting daily immune health maintenance.
A blend of five strains of probiotics. These “good” bacteria help to restore and balance intestinal flora, minimizing the presence of irritants in the digestive tract and anal glands. Live, friendly bacteria also help to reduce harmful bacteria and inflammation. Studies show that 70-80% of immune function exists in the intestinal tract. Probiotics in the intestinal tract coordinate and control the activity of more than 1,000 different microbial species within the natural microbiota.
Organic Pure Oat Bran Powder
Organic, non-GMO oat bran flour is an ideal source of fiber due to its natural beta glucan, fiber content, and flour-like consistency. Oat bran flour provides gentle, soothing action in the digestive tract and colon. The fiber and beta glucan rich oat bran flour support an increase in stool bulk and can optimize stool consistency, which can result in gentle anal gland evacuation during defecation. Beta glucans within the water soluble oat bran flour serve as an immune-protective substance. Beta glucans also have a calming effect on sensitive tissues, which is why oatmeal baths and shampoos are used for dry, itchy skin in humans and pets.
Found in animal mother’s first milk after birth, colostrum is crucial for immune defense and development in animal and human babies. Fresh colostrum powder is rich in essential peptides and is proven to support the secondary, or ‘adaptive’ immune system. First-milking colostrum has high levels of immunoglobulins and proline-rich polypeptides (PRPs), vital for developing and maintaining immune health. Immunoglobulins are antibodies that attach to foreign invaders in the body, allowing the immune system to destroy invaders and keep the body healthy. In adult animals, PRPs and lactoferrin work to boost and modulate the immune system. PRPs, also called ‘info-peptides,’ can signal the immune system to increase activity to mount attacks against viruses, working together with signals with the innate immune system. Lactoferrin is proving to have anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral activity, and has been found to inhibit tumor growth. Colostrum also contains antibodies, proteins and enzymes that boost immune function.
Natural Whey Protein Powder
Easily digested whey protein has been shown to support and boost immune function, and studies show that whey protein contributes to increased muscle strength in humans and animals. Whey protein also contains high levels of cysteine, an amino acid that helps boost glutathione. Glutathione supports the gut, where 70 percent of immune function occurs.
Beta Glucan Powder
This natural beta glucan contains a 50% concentration of beta glucan purified cell fragments, which is seen as ideal for assimilation. Beta glucans have been shown to increase immune defense and natural ‘killer’ cell function. Beta glucans have also been found to inhibit tumor growth and have been used to support immune health during chemotherapy and radiation therapies.
