Immunel™ acts as an immune-modulator, re-establishing balanced regulation of the immune function by restoring the cytokine communication pathways by utilizing the immunoactive molecules that are extracted from dairy cow colostrum. Immunel™ has been studied to induce an array of immunoactive molecules essential to immune system communication. Immunel™, because of the small molecular size (10,000 kilodaltons) is capable of transferring a cellular immune response and optimizing immune system response and balance. The direct effects of Immunel™ on separate aspects of our innate immune defense were tested using human polymorphonuclear (PMN) cells. The pre-treatment with Immunel acted almost immediately, and within a few minutes after treating phagocytic cells with Immunel, more cells were phagocytic, and each phagocytic cell consumed more particles.
