NUTRITION

THE STEEL MACHINE

We believe in putting the right fuel in your body to keep you going in your everyday.

We all have to combat daily stressors, illness, and environmental toxins. How can we protect ourselves?

IMMUNOCAL

Immunocal is a patented, unique and specially formulated natural protein

“Immunocal is a supplement with a well developed molecular structure that has been confirmed in laboratory testing to increase immune function within the human genome. This is the only way to naturally and assuredly increase master antioxidant function by 12- 20% for those able to use Immunocal.” 
– Lisa Regan PhD,MSc, CCN

To ensure the athlete’s energy level is maintained and their immune system remains strong throughout the training cycle, we recommend that an immunocal protein supplement be incorporated into the training program.  

FAQ

WHAT DOES IMMUNOCAL DO?

Immunocal is a safe way for the athlete to boost their energy and support their immune system.

WHAT IS IT?

Immunocal is a pharmaceutical-grade milk serum protein isolate that produces a sustained delivery of cystine to the cells via normal metabolic pathways. By providing cystine, immunocal allows the cells to synthesize and replenish their glutathione stores without adverse or toxic effects. 

IS IT TOXIC OR HARMFUL?

No. Immunocal has no proven or known toxicity. It has less than 1% lactose. However, if the athlete has a milk protein allergy or has had an organ transplant we recommend they consult a physician before taking immunocal.

CAN THE ATHLETE TAKE IT WITH NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS AND PRESCRIBED MEDICINES?

Yes. Immunocal is not known to adversely affect any other prescribed medicines or nutritional supplements such as ensure, boost, or juven. In fact immunocal will add missing ingredients that are vital to an athlete’s health and immune system. 

HOW MUCH SHOULD THE ATHLETE TAKE?

A suggested daily dose is 1-2 packets, depending on the athlete’s needs. 

HOW SHOULD THE ATHLETE TAKE IT?

Immunocal should be mixed with two to three teaspoons of plain yogurt. The yogurt will help protect the protein from the acidity in the stomach while it is being absorbed. However, immunocal can be mixed with water, juice, any dairy product, or any other room temperature liquid of choice. 

WHAT IF I TAKE EXOGENOUS GLUTATHIONE INSTEAD OF IMMUNOCAL?

There is a huge difference between glutathione production from Immunocal and taking exogenous glutathione. First of all, oral glutathione only has around 10% absorption due to the acidity in the gut. Too much GSH (active form of glutathione) in the cell will offset the delicate ratio between GSH and GSSG. This will then stop the oxidation reduction process and the cell will come under the same oxidative stress as if it had no glutathione at all.  It is important to note that there is also a threshold for glutathione in the plasma and too much will prevent the conversion from the inactive form of glutathione to the active form, which is called glutathione peroxidase.

 

IS IMMUNOCAL SAFE FOR CHILDREN TO TAKE?

Yes, children under 12 years old can take half a pack of immunocal per day. After 12 years they can take a full pack.

HYDRATION

Hydration is key for all cellular processes in the body. Without enough water, our cells become limited in what they can do and toxins do not get excreted. Water is a crucial part of life and survival.
Most people we come across are dehydrated. Immunocal is a pure high quality protein and all proteins require good hydration to properly filter out metabolites.
