Study shows ashwaganda-based WellBody●365 protects immune system from stress

In a recently published study, the WellBody●365 were evaluated at the University of Louisville by immunology expert Dr. Vaclav Vetvicka. Research has shown that stress and elevated cortisol levels associated with it negatively impact immune function.

 

Research has shown that stress and elevated cortisol levels associated with it negatively impact immune function. WellBody●365™ is the first bulk-branded ingredient designed specifically to address the negative impact of stress on immunity. This patent-pending blend combines the clinically proven, stress reducing properties of multi-patented Sensoril® (a standardized extract of Ashwagandha) with the immune modulating benefits of a patented, clinically tested, maitake mushroom extract, MaitakeGold 404®.

In a recently published study, the stress-reducing, immune enhancing properties of WellBody●365™ were evaluated at the University of Louisville by immunology expert Dr. Vaclav Vetvicka. Mice fed a normal diet that were subject to stress had higher levels of corticosterone (equivalent to cortisol in humans) and decreased immune function compared to non-stressed animals. In contrast, consumption of WellBody●365™ resulted in reduced corticosterone in stressed mice that were equivalent to levels in non-stressed mice and significantly higher levels of phagocytosis and the cytokines, IL-6 and IL-12, in both stressed and non-stressed conditions compared to control animals. These results indicate that WellBody●365™ reverses the deleterious effects of stress on immune function and also provides comprehensive immune support during periods of lower stress. In addition, based on individual results obtained for Sensoril® and MaitakeGold 404®, the bioactives in WellBody●365™ appear to be acting synergistically to enhance immune function

“This study demonstrates the role WellBody●365™ can play in supporting immune health, especially for people who are stressed,” stated Suzanne McNeary, President of NutraGenesis LLC. “As a result of this research and previous clinical studies, WellBody●365™ features compelling, substantiated structure/function claims in the areas of immune support and stress reduction. The ingredients in WellBody●365™ are also GRAS affirmed so it can be taken 365 days a year, an important feature since stress and the risk of sickness are not just seasonal events but can affect a person’s health throughout the year.”
