Learn how Seigen can naturally boost your immunity.

Immunity means having sufficient biological defenses to avoid infection, loss of colonization resistance or other damaging biological invasion.

Humans are naturally equipped with an elaborate defense system known as the immune system, which protects against the constant invasion of harmful microorganisms.

Germs are everywhere in the air, water, earth and environment in which we live. They are unrelenting in their attempt to enter your body and multiply, while your immune system puts up a heroic struggle to prevent them from imposing damage.

Increasing the number of lactic acid bacteria in your intestines is one good way to increase the strength and effectiveness of your immune system. Therefore you might assume that swallowing a bunch of lactic acid bacteria will put you on the road to health, right?

Well, not exactly. Lactic acid bacteria are easily destroyed by acids, so no matter how many you swallow, nearly all of them will be destroyed before they make it to the intestines.

However, bacteriologists have discovered that fermented extracts metabolized by lactic acid bacteria have the ability to strengthen the immune system. Because such fermented extracts are not living bacteria, they remain unaffected by stomach acid.

Seigen modulates the microbial ecology of the gut, creating colonization resistance, boosting gastrointestinal immunity and promoting the growth of favorable bacterial populations, such as bifidobacteria, in the colon.

Bifidobacteria may inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria, such as Clostridium perfringens and diarrheagenic strains of E. Coli.
