The science behind each ingredient
BeniCaros® is a soluble prebiotic carrot fiber known as rhamnogalacturonan-I (cRG-I) that is extracted from upcycled carrot pomace.
BeniCaros® has a dual mode of action. It passes through the gut where it:
- Trains innate immune cells to become more responsive*
- Increases beneficial bacteria and their active metabolites including short chain fatty acids*
The trained immune cells and active metabolites reach the rest of the body, accelerating the protective anti-viral immune responses in the upper airways.
BeniCaros® trains the immune system to respond faster and more effectively when challenged, and accelerates recovery.*

With over a decade of research behind it, IMMUSE™ stands out as the only dietary supplement ingredient for immune support backed by 30 published studies, including 15 human clinical trials.
IMMUSE™ works by activating pDCs (plasmacytoid dendritic cells), leaders of the immune system, for proactive immune support at the cellular level.*
Most cells are divided between the two main branches of the immune system: innate and adaptive. Natural killer (NK) cells and macrophages, for example, are part of the innate immune system; while B and T cells act as part of the adaptive immune system. pDCs, however, straddle between the two branches and activate cells from both, playing a pivotal role in the overall immune response.
When pDCs detect an invading pathogen, these influential cells secrete large quantities of type-1 interferon (IFN-α), an important signal molecule that stimulates nearly every type of immune cell for full, broad-range defense.

Vitamin C (from acerola cherry)
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that strengthens your body’s natural defenses.* Antioxidants are molecules that boost the immune system by protecting cells from harmful molecules called free radicals.*
Benefits of Vitamin C:
- Encourages the production of white blood cells known as lymphocytes and phagocytes which help protect the body against infection*
- Helps these white blood cells function more effectively*
- Boosts blood antioxidant levels which helps fight free radicals that cause inflammation*
- Strengthens your skin’s defense system*
Vitamin C has been linked to many other impressive health benefits, such as lowering blood pressure, protecting against gout attacks, improving iron absorption, and reducing heart disease and dementia risk.*
Vitamin D3 (from algae)
Algae are plant-like organisms considered to be "superfoods" due to their heavy concentration of key vitamins, minerals, and amino acids including Vitamin D3.
There are two main forms of Vitamin D: D3 (cholecalciferol) and D2 (ergocalciferol). D3 is twice as effective at raising blood levels of vitamin D, which leads to health benefits.*
Vitamin D3 is an essential nutrient that regulates many cellular functions in your body. Its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and neuroprotective properties support immune health, bone health, muscle function, and brain cell activity.*
Benefits of Vitamin D3:
- Activates T-cells, the ‘attack’ cells in the immune system that detect and destroy foreign pathogens like viruses*
- Stimulates the type I interferon signaling system in the body which provides a first line of defense against bacteria and viruses*
Vitamin D3 has been linked to many other impressive health benefits, such as reducing the risk of certain diseases, helping improve mood and reduce depression symptoms, and helping with weight management.*
Zinc (from guava leaf)
Zinc is an essential nutrient that supports every step of the immune process from the growth and development of immune cells to their fight against offending agents such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites.*
Zinc plays a crucial role in immune health by supporting:
- Normal development and function of immune cells, including B cells, macrophages, and natural killer cells*
- Proper coordination between various components of the immune system through appropriate signaling mechanisms*
- Stabilization of the cell membrane of immune cells by protecting them against oxidative stress*
- Production and release of certain chemicals called cytokines involved in immune reactions*
Zinc has been linked to many other impressive health benefits, such as skin health, wound health, metabolism, gut function, cell growth and repair, and DNA synthesis.*
Unlike the majority of products which use synthetic (lab-made) vitamins, we use natural vitamins from whole foods which are more easily absorbed and more effective.

Supporting Your Gut
Immunity begins in the gut, where 80% of immune cells are located.
Our combination of prebiotics and postbiotics, Benicaros® and IMMUSE™, creates gut-mediated immune activation, a novel and exciting method of action.
The result is a powerful, triple action effect that strengthens the body’s natural defenses*, activates faster immune response*, and accelerates recovery*.
Backed by Science
Our active ingredients have been studied extensively and shown to have incredible benefits on immune function.
The results from 35 clinical studies of BeniCaros® prebiotic and IMMUSE™ postbiotic are amazing.
Sourced from Nature
The vast majority of vitamins and minerals in supplements don't come from whole food sources.
They're made synthetically in a lab with industrial chemicals. These synthetic vitamins are difficult for your body to absorb and can cause health issues.
We go the extra mile and only use plant-based vitamins.
Plant-based vitamins are:
- Derived from natural sources, not synthetic chemistry
- Free from industrial chemicals and additives
- Better absorbed by your body
- More effective
The supplement market is littered with products that are are full of added sugar and all kinds of artificial additives that you can't pronounce.
We leave out the bad stuff. Plain and simple.
