Kids Grape Chewable Moducare® is an excellent source of plant sterols and sterolins. These beneficial plant fats, also known as phytosterols, are found in fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Phytosterols offer immune-enhancing properties and can activate the cells that regulate immunity. Phytosterols also have anti-inflammatory properties and can help lower the release of the stress hormone cortisol. These combined benefits of phytosterols offer significant support to daily immune system health. This chewable dosage form is also suitable for adults who have difficulty swallowing capsules.
Kids Moducare® is considered a daily supplement and should be taken for as long as you want to help balance the immune system. Sterols and sterolins do not “fix” the immune system, but provide the nutrients needed to help keep it in balance. They are absorbed in the small intestine and are then transported to the cell membrane. Here, they are beneficial to the messenger system within the cell and modulate specific immune factors that can help control disease conditions.
Research on sterols has been underway since the 1920s. Originating in South Africa, research on the exact combination of sterols and sterolins found in Moducare® has spanned decades. There has been extensive testing and clinical trials, including double-blind, placebo-controlled studies. This research has shown that Moducare® can increase natural killer cell activity, improve the activity of T cells and may also be effective in the management of chronic inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and seasonal allergies. Several studies on plant sterols and sterolins have been published in international medical journals.
