Moducare is a blend of plant sterols and sterolins that can help promote a balanced immune system. Plant sterols – phytosterols and their glycosides (also known as phytosterolins) – are fats that are present in fruits, vegetables, and medicinal plants. Beta-sitosterol (BSS) and its glycoside (BSSG) are the most abundant of these plant sterols. BSS and BSSG, even at very low levels, have been shown to enhance the activity of various cells in the body recognized as having positive immune system activity.
Moducare supplementation also helps maintain a normal ratio of the adrenal hormones cortisol and DHEA, subsequently buffering negative stress responses. Moducare also improves the balance of T-helper 1 to T-helper 2 cells, as a result enhancing cellular immunity and down-regulating overactive immune responses.
Moducare's potential to promote immune health in a group of volunteers participating in an ultra-marathon was investigated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Subjects in the Moducare group maintained a more healthy immune response compared to individuals taking the placebo. The benefit to the immune system was believed to be because cortisol levels did not increase in response to the exercise stress in those taking Moducare
