Immunace Extra Protection

The optimum formula to help maintain immune function

Immunace Extra Protection provides an advanced research based formula of 28 nutrients, including all the benefits of the original Immunace, plus additional nutrients, such as natural lycopene, resveratrol, astaxanthin, alpha lipoic acid and extra vitamin D at 1000 IU. Developed by Vitabiotics' experts, Immunace Extra Protection gives you extra nutritional support with higher daily levels of vitamin D to contribute to the normal function of the immune system.

"The best way to support the immune system is to maintain your general health with a balanced diet, mild exercise and sufficient sleep. Diet is probably the major factor in supporting the immune system."

Professor Ronald Eccles - Cardiff School of Biosciences

Extra nutritional protection for your immune system

The nutrients found in Immunace Extra Protection including vitamins C & E contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Immunace provides a daily source of vitamin C which is not produced or stored by the body. Immunace Extra Protection combines a synergistic combination of nutrients such as natural lycopene, l-carnitine, resveratrol, astaxanthin, and alpha lipoic acid.

With extra nutrients beyond original Immunace

Additional Vitamin D

Immunace provides a comprehensive formula including additional Vitamin D, Zinc & Selenium which contribute to the normal function of the immune system, plus folate which contributes to normal blood formation. Immunace was one of the UK's first immune system supplements to pioneer and recognise that Vitamin D not only contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and muscle function, but also contributes to the normal function of the immune system.

New research shows that optimum intake levels of vitamin D may be higher than previously thought. Each tablet of Immunace Extra Protection contains an optimum level of 25mcg (1,000 IU) of vitamin D3, which is the specific form made naturally by the human body and therefore preferred over D2 which is found in some supplements.

Lycopene extract

Lycopene is the bright red carotenoid pigment found in tomatoes. Lycopene is an intermediate in the biosynthesis of many carotenoids, including beta-carotene. Lycopene is not synthesised in the body and must be obtained from the diet.

Resveratrol

Resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes. Resveratrol may contribute to cardiovascular health and has been identified as one of the protective substances found in red wine.

Comprehensive micronutrient support

Immunace Extra Protection provides a comprehensive range of vitamins and minerals. The Immunace formula was originally developed in conjunction with an international expert in nutrient research, based on scientific evidence of the role of specific nutrients in the normal function of the immune system. Immunace has also been independently used in research.

Immunace Extra Protection FAQ

Why has Immunace Extra Protection been developed?

Research shows that our bodies often lack the specific nutrients required to help maintain the normal function of the immune system. Fruit and vegetables are the richest source of important antioxidants, but there is growing evidence that most western diets do not provide sufficient amounts. Immunace Extra Protection provides a synergistic combination of 28 nutrients, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and bioflavonoids as well as nutrients such as: natural lycopene, l-carnitine, resveratrol, astaxanthin, alpha lipoic acid plus additional vitamin D (1000 IU) which contributes to normal immune system function. Immunace Extra Protection contains a wide spectrum of nutrients because studies suggest that the full range of specific nutrients is more effective when combined. Top

When is Immunace Extra Protection recommended ?

Immunace Extra Protection is recommended for men and women as a daily nutritional safeguard with vitamin D3, zinc & selenium which contribute to the normal function of the immune system. Immunace Extra Protection may also be used as a daily multivitamin supplement. Immunace Extra Protection can be taken for as long as required. There is no maximum length of time over which it may be used. Top

Can Immunace Extra Protection be used simultaneously with medications?

Generally, Immunace Extra Protection may be used along-side medications because it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals, and is free from drugs and hormones. For specific advice on taking Immunace Extra Protection with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first. Top

How many tablets does one pack of Immunace Extra Protection contain?

Immunace Extra Protection contains 30 one a day tablets per pack. Top

How and when should Immunace Extra Protection be used?

One tablet per day is recommended with or immediately after your main meal, swallow with water or a cold drink. Taking the tablet with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients, and can reduce mild nausea, which is sometimes experienced if any multivitamins are taken on an empty stomach. Immunace Extra Protection should only be taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Immunace Extra Protection is taken with plenty of liquid to wash the tablet down. Top

Need help swallowing a tablet or capsule?

Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively and recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider to swallow the chewed food and so the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively, the tablets may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. Top

Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Immunace Extra Protection ?

Immunace Extra Protection has no known side-effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended tablet intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately. Top

What are the active ingredients?

Please see nutritional information click here Top

How long does it take to experience any benefit?

Results vary amongst individuals, but in most cases we would expect the beneficial effects of the vitamins and minerals in Immunace Extra Protection to build over several weeks. There is no maximum length of time over which ImmunaceExtra Protection may be used. A regular intake is recommended. Top

Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%, is this safe?

Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the NRV, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the NRV. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to be considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.

The Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the NRV, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% NRV.

All Vitabiotics products have been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.

Vitabiotics avoids 'mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.

Mr S Reynolds, United Kingdom

"I was recommended Immunace Extra Protection by a friend who has been using them for some time. I ordered 3 packs initially to split with my partner and only a few weeks in we are both feeling better already! Long may this continue! Just wanted to share some happy feedback with you, thank you so much!"

"I have been using Immunace Extra for about 14 months now and is has certainly supported my immune system. I have recommended it to many friends. Thank you for this product."

Mr N M, United Kingdom

"Hi, I just wanted to say how wonderful your products are. I have been taking Immunace for years and moved onto Immunace Extra Protection recently, which is brilliant. I have made my whole family take Immunace Extra Protection as I know how great it is. Thanks "

Mr D Saville, United Kingdom

"I am writing to compliment you on your wonderful product. I take Immunace every day, and have been taking them since June 2010. Taking Immunace has really lifted my general health. I would like to say thank you for this product, it is brilliant and I can really feel the effect it has on my Immunace system."

Mr J H, United Kingdom

"I started to take a lot of vitamins and minerals, but after a while I got sick of taking over 20 various separate tablets of vitamins/minerals/herbs/oils a day. I started looking for a really good multivitamin as most do not contain 100% RDA of some vitamins. For me it was selenium I was mainly after, as my research and experience showed it to be a really important mineral and one of the best anti-oxidants to help maintain the immune system. I finally came across Immunace and couldn't believe the levels of ingredients it contained. Not only does it have an excellent 180 micrograms of Selenium it also contains Iodine (important for maintaining a healthy Thyroid gland), L-Carnitine (for metabolism) and Copper which I have never seen in any other multivitamin. My search is now over, I have found the best multivitamin on the market. Thank you for making Immunace!"

Ms N Grace, United Kingdom

"I have a hectic and chaotic schedule, with regular travel between the US, London, and other countries to give lectures and attend conferences. When I started taking Immunace two years ago on a daily basis, I could feel the difference it made after a week; I felt better all round and had more zip . When I ran out of Immunace recently, the difference was obvious after 10 days. Happily my travel plans included a trip to Vitabiotics to replenish my supplies. Louis G. Keith, M.D., Ph.D. Professor Emeritus The Feinberg School of Medicine Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois, 60611 "
