Science 

Bock Nutritionals’s Immune-Up is refined to remove most impurities, including proteins and fats that can interfere with uptake and effectiveness.

Beta-glucan has been recognized for its support of immune system activity for centuries[1]; and yeast-derived beta-glucan has become the subject of over 800 scientific studies to date. Bock Nutritionals Immune-Up contains concentrated 1,3/1,6 beta-glucan from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a source known to support immune function. [2-4] Beta-glucan is produced by fungi, grains, seaweed, and yeast, but not by mammalian cells.[3-5] delivers 250 mg of whole glucan particle per capsule, providing beta 1,3/1,6 glucan—a unique complex carbohydrate purified from Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s yeast).

It is natural, non-genetically modified (non-GMO), hypoallergenic, patented, and generally recognized as safe (GRAS). Taken orally, Immune-Up primes and mobilizes the cells that support the body's first-line immune response.*

  • Non-GMO
  • Hypoallergenic
  • GRAS
