Dietary Supplement • Colostrum, Beta Glucans, and Hydrolyzed Fish Collagen
GALT-immune contains pure, clean sourced colostrum, beta glucans, and hydrolyzed fish collagen in a vegetable capsule. This supplement was designed to support:
• Healthy immune response
• Normal digestive function
• Healthy connective tissue
Over 70% of the body’s immune cells are in the digestive tract; these cells are known as GALT, gut associated lymphoid tissue. GALT is composed of lymph tissue, lymphocytes, and epithelial cells that acts as an important defense for the body against foreign pathogens such as bacteria, fungus, and viruses. B lymphocytes and T lymphocytes located in this lymph tissue are integral to innate and adaptive immunity. M cells in the GALT also regulate oral tolerance, the defense for potentially immunologic dietary substances through antigen uptake.
While GALT plays a major role in defense of the body, it is also part of the enteric nervous system. The enteric nervous system (ENS) is a concentration of 200-600 million neurons that mirrors aspects of the central nervous system (CNS) and works both autonomously and in concert with the central nervous system, parasympathetic and sympathetic. This intensive network acts as the “second brain” affecting many functions of the body.
The enteric nervous system connects the entire digestive system from the upper esophagus to the lower large intestine. It contains sensory neurons, motor neurons, and interneurons that help to regulate gastric secretions, gut motility, and blood flow to the digestive system. The connection between the ENS and CNS form a gut-brain-axis linking emotional and cognitive centers of the brain to intestinal functions. This interaction is mainly through nerve signaling, signaling from gut microbiota, and hormones all playing a role in how we feel mentally and physically. A healthy digestive system is vital to overall well-being including emotional health.
GALT-immune is often used to complement clinical strategies designed to support normal immune function and many systemic processes.

If pregnant or breast-feeding, taking medication, or are about to have surgery, ask a healthcare professional before use. Keep out of reach of children.
Colostrum (Pasteurized Cow Pre-milk) – Prized for containing immune factors including immunoglobulin A (IgA) and vitamins and antioxidants, colostrum stimulates growth of the protective mucus membranes in infants, creates a coating on the intestines to prevent infection in infants, and strengthens immune system.
Beta Glucans (from Saccharomyces cerevisiae) – A viscous polysaccharide that supports the immune system, helps protect against infection, maintains healthy serum cholesterol levels, and supports glucose metabolism.
Hydrolyzed Fish Collagen – Predigested for bioavailability. Collagen is assimilated by the body to help tissue repair and maintenance, support digestive health, and skin and hair.
