3-Step Immune Support Protocol
1. Monolaurin Pellets
2. Immune Support Nutrients
3. Detox Support Nutrients
It is more important than ever to give our immune system what it needs to protect us!
Our immune system is constantly at work. From our skin and the lining of our gut to antibodies and T-Cells, our immune responses are working hard to overcome the
threats to our health.
It only makes sense to give our personal defense system the best support possible!
Can Nature Provide this Support?
You bet… with a highly effective combination of our
best-selling Monolaurin supplement, our cutting-edge Immune Support supplement, and
our time-tested Detox Support Formula!
1. Monolaurin can directly kill pathogens in our body.
2. Immune Support nutrients are the best at boosting our immune system.
3. Detox Support nutrients help remove the bad stuff from our body.
Step 1: Monolaurin
Monolaurin is an incredible protective nutrient. We use it for many of our other protocols. For in-depth coverage of Monolaurin: https://www.ppt-health.com/monolaurin/
A quick summary:
Monolaurin is well researched, and has no known interactions with any drugs or nutrients.
Monolaurin kills pathogenic bacteria and many viruses (including influenza), and it is known to be effective against fungal health challenges (candida).
- Essential monoglycerides!
This is a technical way to say monolaurin is a “good” fat that is beneficial in most health situations.
- Gut friendly!
It doesn’t harm the “good” bacteria in the gut.
- Wallet friendly!
Monolaurin is very inexpensive, especially when compared to other protocols. Depending on the need, one 21oz. container can last up to 6 months.
Monolaurin does not directly boost the immune system. It does help tremendously by killing many pathogens, allowing the immune system to concentrate its energy on other immune attacks.
Step 2: Immune Support Nutrients
Along with Monolaurin, there has been a dramatic increase of interest in additional nutrients that can help build and support the immune system.
Much of the information and promotion of immune nutrients is outdated or simply “internet talk” with little scientific backing. Many dietary recommendations give you a long list of great foods – but the effort of acquiring and consuming all to the quantities necessary can be overwhelming and expensive.
Fortunately, there has also been a great deal of updated and recent research on immune boosting nutrients. This research has helped us separate out the top performing 17 nutrients, in concentrated form, to maximize your immune support! Here are the nutrients that make our Immune Support formula work:
The Major Players – (Big impact nutrients for the immune system.)
- Astragalus – Astragalus is an herb famous for centuries for its immune boosting properties. T-Cells are your body’s frontline defense response, swarming to an infection, bacteria, or pathogen. Once the battle is won, they transform into keeping a record of the infection (immunity).
Telomeres, the structures at the end of your chromosomes, help protect the chromosomes (an analogy would be the plastic ends of your shoelaces) and they are crucial in helping properly duplicate new cells. But, with age and chronic health challenges, telomeres are damaged. Then, your T-Cells production of new cells can decline by as much as 90%! If your T-Cells are not rejuvenated correctly, your immune system becomes less able to defend against alien invaders.
Telomerase is an enzyme that helps maintain the length of telomeres. UCLA researchers, in a double-blind clinical trial, studied astragalus extract compared to other telomerase activators. Astragalus hit a home run! In just 72 hours, they saw up to a 330% boost in telomerase activity compared to anything else tested. (1)
- DMG (Dimethylglycine HCl) – DMG is a safe nutrient modulator (helps regulate your immune system). DMG can radically restore or increase the immune system’s response. A double-blind study by the Medical U. of South Carolina (later confirmed by U. of Clemson) showed when patients’ immune systems were challenged with a vaccine, those taking DMG had a 450% higher antibody production than those not taking DMG. In addition, the lymphocytes’ T-Cell response (white blood cells formed in lymphoid tissue) was increased.(2)
- Zinc – Zinc does many things but, in today’s world, two are especially important. Zinc helps prevent viruses from duplicating inside our cells! Viruses can’t duplicate by themselves. They must ‘borrow’ the ability to duplicate within our cells. Zinc blocks the virus duplication signals!(3) Zinc is also an anti-inflammatory, inducing a down-regulation of the mRNA inflammatory cytokines. A “Cytokine Storm” – when your immune system releases too many cytokines too quickly – can lead to an especially serious lung congestion challenge in severe viral infections.(4)
- Quercetin – A flavonoid found in vegetables and fruits, Quercetin is well known for its antioxidant activity, and has a wide range of health benefits. Specifically, Quercetin stimulates the immune system and inhibits histamine release while, like zinc, decreasing pro-inflammatory cytokines. Quercetin is an ionophore for zinc. It is responsible for carrying zinc from the outside of a cell to the inside. For zinc to exhibit its anti-viral effects, it is vital that it reaches the center of a cell where viruses replicate.(6)
- Echinacea (augustifolia root 4% extract) – A well-known herb originating in North America and used by indigenous Indians. Echinacea contains polysaccharides (substances known to trigger the activity of the immune system). (5)
- Mushroom Blend: Cordyceps, Lion’s Mane, Maitake, Reishi – Mushrooms, known to contain adaptogens and polysaccharides, have been used to strengthen immunity and overall health for thousands of years. We have included not one, but four of the top choices when it comes to immune support!
- Probiotics Complex: L. rhamnosus, L. paracasei, B. lactis, S. boulardii – As the saying goes, “immunity starts in the gut,” and more and more people are learning of the importance of gut health. The probiotics (good bacteria) in our gut actually produce many of the nutrients our immune system needs.
- Vitamin D – Vitamin D is the single most important vitamin for our immune system. As the vitamin D attaches to immune cells, B-Cells, T-Cells and antigens, it helps them release their immunity acting chemicals.
The Supporting Cast – (Specialty roles and major nutrient support.)
- Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA) – ALA recycles antioxidants, especially Vitamin C and E. The “R’ form is the most bioavailable lipoic acid (and, as a bonus, is 10x stronger an antioxidant in the mitochondria membrane).
- Cat’s Claw – There are some illnesses where an over-active immune system can cause a cytokine storm. Cat’s claw is important in helping moderate and calm an overactive immune system.(7) It can also help increase the number of white blood cells and help CD4 and T-Cell counts. (CD4+ T-Cells are increasingly recognized as playing an essential role in the control of chronic viral infections.) (8)
- Elderberry Fruit – This plant’s immune support capabilities can be traced all the way back to Hippocrates! The fruit contains anthocyanidins which can stimulate the immune system with no evidence of overstimulation. The flavonoids in the fruit can even inhibit influenza viruses.
- Green Tea Leaf – Best known for its powerful antioxidant catechins, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is understood to be the most beneficial.
- L-Glutathione – A powerful antioxidant and one of the most prevalent in the human body, it is primarily made in the liver and can help to prevent lung and lymphocyte damage. Aging, stress, toxins and poor nutrition can lead to a decline in the body’s production, hence the reason for supplementation.
- Menaquinone (Vitamin K2) – Already acknowledged for its role in promoting a healthy heart. It works well with Vitamin D to support immune health, especially the lungs and already mentioned heart.
- Niacin (Vitamin B3) – Can help activate the body’s innate immune defenses, and could also inhibit pro-inflammatory cytokines.
- Selenium – A trace mineral, and another antioxidant, a deficiency in selenium has been shown to negatively affect immune cell functions which could lead to immune-suppression.
- Vitamin C – Perhaps the most well-known vitamin associated with immune support, and another strong antioxidant, Vitamin C supports both our innate immune response (skin) and our adaptive response (white blood cells).
Step 3: Detox Support Nutrients
Pathogenic bacteria, viruses and unfriendly fungi aren’t the only challenges impacting our immune system. Unfortunately, we are surrounded by environmental toxins. They are in our houses, our clothing, and most importantly- in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat.
And since our bodies are continuously dealing with these toxins, you can bet that our immune system feels the impact as well. Our Detox Support Nutrient formula was designed to help our body get rid of these toxins through oral chelation and subsequent waste removal from the body. It’s packed full of “super-detoxer” nutrients like:
- Chlorella – Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) is a complex of substances found only in chlorella and helps to remove the multitude of impurities in your body and renew cellular strength and integrity. Chlorella binds to heavy metals as well as other toxic substances in the bowel to help with the detoxification process.
- Malic Acid – An organic fruit acid, it has been found to help remove the toxic metals lead, strontium, and others. However, it is especially effective for aluminum, known to damage delicate brain cells. This makes malic acid an important part of a full chelation protection.
- MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) – MSM makes individual cell walls more permeable so that the cell can more easily get rid of toxins and absorb nutrients and water to continue the detoxification process.
- Cilantro – Also known as coriander or Chinese parsley, it works with chlorella and MSM. It helps move mercury out of cells so the chlorella can bind to it and allow it to be excreted from the body. Cilantro has been shown in clinical trials and research to activate mercury, plus other toxic metals stored in the brain and spinal cord, and move them rapidly out of those tissues. This is important because cilantro is one of the very few substances known to remove mercury from the central nervous system.
- L-Glutathione (GSH) – the most potent heavy-metal detoxifier manufactured by the body! The power of glutathione in the elimination of toxins is amazing (up to 60 percent of all liver metabolites in the bile). It is one of the few known mechanisms by which the body can flush mercury back across the blood-brain barrier and out of brain tissue. It is also a major antioxidant within cells and is the major repair enzyme. This provides “mega” protection against DNA damage from heavy metals.
And many more supporting nutrients!
We advocate strongly for considering a detox support supplement in most protocols, and even as its own protocol; however, detox support supplements are not designed for long-term, continuous use. Refer to protocol directions for more information.
Monolaurin tastes quite bitter so we highly recommend not chewing them. Happily, the small pellet form is very easy to swallow, making them easy to take alone or with other capsules & tablets. Simply swallow with a cool liquid (avoid warm or hot liquids).
The amount of monolaurin taken is often determined by body weight and need (health challenge), so adults typically factor in their own body weight when determining their daily amount. Attempt to spread the daily amount throughout the course of the day (2-3 times). Many people take UltraLaurin at meal times, since this provides a natural spacing of the daily amount throughout the day, and works with the body’s daily digestion cycle. However, it is not required to take with food.
Important Information: To help avoid a Herxheimer Reaction*, consider gradually building up to a full amount over the course of 7 to 14 days. Some people can find this “build-up” takes substantially longer.
*Herxheimer Reaction: A “herx” reaction can occur when pathogens “die off” faster than the body can eliminate them. This can cause mental and/or physical fatigue, mild chills, rashes, and or allergic type symptoms. The reaction can differ in symptom and intensity from person to person. If this happens, simply stop taking the UltraLaurin for 1-3 days to give your body extra time to remove the dead pathogens. Resume daily intake of UltraLaurin at a lower amount and gradually increase again to the full amount preferred, as your body can handle it.
One (1) blue scoop = 1 tsp = 75-80 small pellets = 3,000 mg UltraLaurin.
Maintenance: 1/2 – 1 scoop a day.
Winter season/contagious daily environment: 1/2 – 1 scoop, 2 times a day.
A specific protocol:
- 80 – 100 pounds: 1/2 scoop, 3 times a day
- 110 – 140 pounds: 1 scoop, 2 times daily.
- Over 150 pounds: 1 scoop, 3 times daily.
Immune Support Product
One serving is 3 capsules.
The Immune Support product can be taken at any time of the day, including meals, and the serving can be spread out throughout the day or taken at one time. Since it has a probiotic blend, people may prefer to take it before meals (empty stomach), however, it is important to note the minerals included in the formula may not sit well on a completely empty stomach for some people.
Detox Support Product
One serving is 6 capsules.
The Detox Support product can be taken at any time of the day, including meals, and the serving can be spread out throughout the day or taken at one time. People may prefer to take it before bedtime, and allow the nutrients to work while the body is at rest.
We are confident our immune system is well designed – if given the proper nutrients. Consuming all these proper nutrients by food alone can be very challenging. Our 3-Step Immune Support Protocol helps provide the combination of necessary nutrients. This combination of:
Step 1: Our Monolaurin’s direct attack against pathogens to lighten the load, and
Step 2: Our Immune Support Formula’s 17 immune-boosting nutrients, and
Step 3: Our Detox Support Formula’s chelating function
gives us the best possible natural support against attacks on our immune system.
