Source Naturals(R) Arms Immune Defenses

Four New Products Combat Health Stress and Immune Unrest

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif., April 9 -- Source Naturals(R), creators of the highly-acclaimed line of health and nutrition supplements, added several potent products to their arsenal of immune preparedness products in response to a sense of urgency consumers are expressing to have healthier lives.

"With threats of bioterrorism, and now SARS, people are very concerned," said Jeff Lipsius, Vice President of Threshold Enterprises, Ltd. "They feel helpless, and are looking for a true sense of security as far as their health is concerned. The public needs to know that there are scientifically-proven steps they can take to strengthen their own ability to resist health threats in the post-antibiotic era."

Source Naturals responded to these needs, adding Beta Glucan (Purified Beta 1,3/1,6-Glucan), Mushroom Immune Defense(TM) and AHCC(R) to their strong line of immune-boosting products, giving consumers even more control of their health. They have also introduced a Potassium Iodide product for additional peace of mind.

Beta Glucan is a unique polysaccharide derived from baker's yeast. Studies have shown that Beta Glucan can stimulate phagocytosis and interleukin production. Phagocytosis is the process of a white blood cell engulfing and destroying a foreign substance. Interleukin is a chemical mediator that triggers white blood cell production and activity.

Mushroom Immune Defense contains mycelia biomass from 16 health-supportive varieties of mushrooms, plus highly potent myco-extracts for additional immune efficacy. The product contains beta-glucans, glycoproteins and polysaccharides, which support a wide range of immune defenses, including natural killer cell, cytokine production, T-cell and macrophage activity.

AHCC, or Active Hexose Correlated Compound, is a proprietary substance obtained through the enzymatic modification of several species of mushroom mycelia. The low molecular weight of AHCC makes it easier to absorb, allowing rapid enhancement of white blood cell production and activity, and increased natural killer (NK) cells. Hundreds of Japanese hospitals and clinics recommend AHCC as part of an immune maintenance regimen, and its potent effects are so regarded that sales exceed $200 million dollars per year.

Potassium Iodide maintains high levels of beneficial iodides in the thyroid gland -- especially important after exposure to high levels of radiation. The federal government is distributing potassium iodide around nuclear power generation facilities. Source Naturals recommends keeping several bottles in your own preparedness kit.

Source Naturals launched the industry's first immune system modulator -- Wellness Formula(R) -- and continues as a leader in the market with their full line of immune products. All of these products are founded on years of solid research in immune system enhancement. Through their use, consumers can deeply improve their health, and gain a greater sense of health security.

Source Naturals -- founded by Ira Goldberg in 1982 -- is committed to enhancing individual potential to enjoy optimal health and well-being by providing superior-quality dietary supplements and nutritional education. For more information, pricing or purchase locations, please visit
