How it Works

The Syntra-Shield Difference

Simply put, Syntra-Shield's active ingredient (a patented yeast-derived gluco polysaccharide) activates a large population of the body’s own immune cells to enhance natural defenses against foreign challenges. Once swallowed, It is taken up into the body through the Peyer’s Patches, specialized regions in the small intestines. There are immune cells called macrophages that engulf the active ingredient in Syntra-Shield and degrade it into smaller fragments that bind to neutrophils, the most abundant immune cell in the body. Primed with this unique ingredient, neutrophils more effectively circulate throughout the body and kill foreign challenges.

Natural Products Insider

"Subjects taking the active ingredient in Syntra-Shield reported a 42% increase in vigor and 38% reduction in fatigue, and significantly fewer subjects on active treatment had any type of upper respiratory infection symptoms."

Nutrition

"In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study with 40 subjects 18-65 years old, the active ingredient in Syntra-Shield (a patented yeast-derived gluco polysaccharide) reduced the incidence of fever & elimated the need to miss work or school due to cold-like symptoms." Results were presented at Experimental Biology 2008.

Nutraceutical

"The active ingredient in Syntra-Shield activates a natural immune mechanism to increase the ability of macrophages to phagocytose or engulf and destroy foreign challenges"

Nutraceutical World

"Syntra-Shield's active ingredient primes key immune cells, including macrophages and neutrophils (types of white blood cells), to quickly identify and kill foreign challenges."

What is the active ingredient in Syntra-Shield?

The active ingredient in Syntra-Shield is a natural ingredient that activates a large population of immune cells to defend the body against a wide range of foreign challenges. Derived from the cell walls of a proprietary strain of yeast, this unique gluco polysaccharride acts as a biological response modifier.

What is AS5As the immune system evolved, it became very adept at killing yeast and fungi by recognizing certain molecules that commonly occur on the cell surface of these challenges.The active ingredient in Syntra-Shield is one such recognition molecule.

The active ingredient in Syntra-Shield binds to specific receptors (CR3) on neutrophils, the most abundant immune cell in the body, and activates or enhances its anti-microbial activity, including immune cell migration to the site of achallenge (chemotaxis) and increased killing of intruders (phagocytosis and oxidative burst).

The molecular structure of the active ingredient in Syntra-Shield, with its beta 1,3/1,6 branch points, is responsible for its unique biological activity.

How It Works

Syntra-Shield's active ingredient (a patented yeast-derived gluco polysaccharide) has a unique mechanism of action – how it works in the body – is well understood and the subject of several peer-reviewed studies. Simply put, the active ingredient in Syntra-Shield activates a large population of the body’s own immune cells to enhance natural defenses against foreign challenges.

Mechanism of Action Once swallowed, the active ingredient is taken up into the body through the Peyer’s Patches, specialized regions in the small intestines. There immune cells called macrophages engulf Syntra-Shield's active ingredient and degrade it into smaller fragments that bind to neutrophils, the most abundant immune cell in the body. Primed with the active ingredient in Syntra-Shield, neutrophils more effectively circulate throughout the body and kill foreign challenges.

Proof that it Works How do we know that the active ingredient in Syntra-Shield really works? An important study published in The Journal of Immunology utilized fluorescently labeled the active ingredient in Syntra-Shield that could be tracked with a microscope as it primed various immune cells for bioactivity.

On day one after ingestion, the active ingredient in Syntra-Shield was detected in intestinal macrophage cells. On day three, splenic macrophages break down the the active ingredient in Syntra-Shield and release tiny fragments. On the fifth day of the experiment, fragments of the active ingredient in Syntra-Shield are found on the cell surface of neutrophils.

Product Benefits

Syntra-Shield utilizes the most effective and safest natural immune health ingredient available today.

Safety. The active ingredient in Syntra-Shield is safe to consume daily and Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) under the provisions of U.S. Food and Drug Administration 21CFR170.35. Syntra-Shield is also GMO-free, Kosher and nonallergenic.

Efficacy. Syntra-Shield's active ingredient engages the body’s natural defenses to protect against a wide range of challenges. Clinical studies demonstrate action that significantly increases the:

  • Percent of active immune cells available to defend the body.
  • Mobilization of innate immune cells to the site of a challenge, enabling faster recognition of an intruder.
  • Killing (phagocytosis) of foreign challenges, resulting in a more complete immune response.

 

Credible Research. Numerous studies published in peer-reviewed science and medical journals support the safety and efficacy of the active ingredient in Syntra-Shield. This technology is the culmination of more than $250 million in internal R&D and collaborations with leading research institutions, including the James Graham Brown Cancer Center at the University of Louisville, the U.S. National Institute of Health, The Mayo Clinic and the U.S. and Canadian Departments of Defense.

Patented. There are more than 40 U.S. patents and patents pending, plus additional filings in more than 20 countries. These patents protect the composition, manufacture and application of the ingredients.
