Immune Health

The immune system plays a major role in protecting our body against pathogenic substances, cancerous cells, and foreign bodies. With nutritional deficiencies, aging, and illness, one becomes increasingly vulnerable to infections. Accordingly, several studies have been able to establish a link between weaker immune functions and micronutrient deficiencies, even in cases where only one micronutrient was limited in the diet.

Many key vitamins and minerals have demonstrated their role in immunological defence, such as Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, Copper, Iron, and Selenium. With the global spreading of the westernized diet, even industrialized countries such as Europe and the US report vitamin and mineral deficiency more frequently than ever.

Lallemand continuously innovates by optimizing yeast production processes to create products that can be used in dietary supplements formulated for the immune health market… reviving the 1930’s ‘yeast for your health’ motto.

Several inactivated whole cell yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) products containing elevated levels of specific vitamins and minerals are offered by Lallemand.

Bio availability of Yeast Micronutrients

Yeast's ability to incorporate certain vitamins and minerals within its cells makes it an ideal natural ingredient that can be used in dietary supplements formulated to help maintain a normal function of the immune system. Compared to pure forms of certain minerals and vitamins, those found in yeast have been shown in several studies to have slower absorption rates and higher bioavailability in animals and humans.

Lalmin® Immune
