Congaplex is used for short-term support of the immune system.*
How do the ingredients in Congaplex support the immune system?
- Supports healthy immune system function
- Provides ingredients with antioxidant activity
- Supports the thymus gland
- Contains ribonucleic acid, which the body uses to build new cells
- Contains a combination of key ingredients from Cataplex® A-C, Thymex®, Calcium Lactate®, and Ribonucleic Acid (RNA)
- High in antioxidant vitamin C*
Congaplex contains vitamins A and C, calcium, and magnesium to support immune system function.*
Vitamin A plays an important role in a healthy immune system by facilitating the development of type 1 and type 2 helper T cells as well as contributing to the function of both T cells and B cells. 1
Vitamin C enhances the healthy function of the immune system by supporting the maturation of T cells. 2 Additionally, vitamin C stimulates the functions of leukocytes and is important in natural killer (NK) cell activity. 3 Vitamin C supports the maintenance and regeneration of cells. 4
It has been shown that for effective T cell activation as well as T cell-dependent immune system response, it is critical to have both Ca 2+ signaling and the rearrangement of the cytoskeletal components of the cell to support that signaling. 5
Research findings suggest an inverse relationship between magnesium levels and the presence of C-reactive protein in blood. C-reactive protein levels are used by doctors as an indicator of inflammation status in the body. 6
Laboratory research by Standard Process scientists concluded that T lymphocyte cells treated with Congaplex showed statistically significant changes in cytokine levels and an increase in T cell signaling in a dose-dependent manner. 7*How do the ingredients in Congaplex support the thymus gland?
Congaplex contains Cytosol™ extract from the bovine thymus gland to support the healthy function of human thymus gland. T cells are produced in the thymus gland and are very important for a healthy immune system response. 8*How is ribonucleic acid (RNA) used to support cells experiencing a challenge
Cells require a steady supply of nucleotides to properly build RNA molecules to perform important functions such as protein synthesis and message delivery in cells.
Research has indicated that it is important to have nucleotides readily available to tissues that are experiencing stress. It is thought that during these times of stress the cells require more raw materials, such as nucleotides, to maintain health. More clinical research in adults is needed to better understand the role of dietary nucleotides and immune system response. 9*Suggested Use:
