a unique combination of glandulars, nutrients, and botanicals for natural immune system support*
IM-Encap was one of the first formulas in the Thorne Research line of dietary supplements. A time-tested immune system support formula, it has been a consistent best seller.
IM-Encap contains bovine spleen, thymus, and lymph glandulars to nourish and enhance the tone, function, and activity of these same glands in humans.* The thymus gland can benefit many aspects of cellular immunity, including maturation of T-cell precursors.* Thymus extracts can naturally enhance several immune parameters.* Spleen extracts support the production of white blood cells and enhance the activity of natural killer (NK) cells.*
Zinc can affect multiple aspects of the immune system, including promoting acquired immunity and macrophage function.* Vitamins A and C promote the production and activity of white blood cells.*
Echinacea angustifolia, Baptisia tinctoria, Paeonia suffruticosa, Sambucus nigra, Eupatorium perfoliatum, and Pau d'arco are botanicals with immune-supportive properties.* Baptisia tinctoria (wild indigo) has immune-supportive properties and is frequently used in conjunction with Echinacea.* Paeonia suffruticosa has numerous properties that benefit immune support.* Pau d'arco has demonstrated effectiveness in immune support due to its antioxidant effects.* The flavonoids in Sambucus nigra (elderberry) extracts are effective immune enhancers.* Eupatorium perfoliatum (boneset) has been used extensively to support respiratory health and is known for possessing potent immuno-supportive properties.*
