Thorne Moducare® is a dietary supplement containing plant sterols and sterol glycosides in the proportions selected on the basis of scientific research.
Plant sterols (phytosterols) – sterols produced by plants, they are structural elements of mucous membranes. Their structure is similar to cholesterol, pregnenonol and progesterone. Among them we distinguish i.a. beta-Sitosterol, stigmasterol or campesterol. In the life of plants they play protective functions and regulate intracellular processes.
Sterolins – sterols appearing in the form glycosides bound with sugars, also called sterol glycosides. They also find application in certain therapeutic products used in medicine.
The company Thorne Research has put every effort to compose the ingredients of this preparation, as the proportion of sterols to their glycosides used has been designed on the basis of the analysis of scientific research with the use of these agents. Thanks to this, we obtain optimal effect, bringing most benefits.
The power of nature in a capsule
The history gets repeated and more and more people go back to the roots and get interested in the therapeutic properties of plants. Undoubtedly, it is a beneficial phenomenon, as plants and their active substances may have strong, pro-health extensive effects.
Sterols are a numerous group of compounds, which are characterized with wide spectrum of effects on the human health, especially when it comes to immunology and hormonal balance. They may also have antithrombotic effect, improve physical efficiency, reduce pain, improve well-being and accelerate wound healing.
Balance between the arms of the immune system
In order to maintain good health, there has to be a balance in our body, which also concerns the immune system. The highest interest is caused by the relation of cytokines belonging to the immune arms Th1 and Th2 and the consequences of its imbalance.
Cytokines characteristic to T-helper1 are IL-2, IL-12, TNF-alpha and interferons. In the arm T-helper-3, on the other hand, there operate mainly IL-4, IL-10 and IL-13. Referring to this large generalization it may be concluded that the domination of Th1 arm coexists with the majority of autoaggressive diseases, while the stronger arm Th2 appears most often in allergy and asthma.
In order to reach homeostasis, we need to modulate the immune system in such a way so that no side is dominant, but both cooperate with each other. One of the ways to achieve the optimal work of the immune system is to use phytosterols and their glycosides in the appropriate proportions.
Inhibiting excessive immunological response
It may seem that the stronger the immune system, the more benefits we have, as the risk of infections is lower. Well, this is not always true, as there are also certain diseases, in which the organism fights with itself by causing immune cells attack its own tissues. Such a state is called autoimmunology and there are dozens of autoimmune diseases. The most popular of them is Hashimoto’s disease, which affects thyroid gland. In this group there are also such ailments as celiac syndrome, lupus, multiple sclerosis, diabetes type I, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis or sarcoidosis.
When our immune system attacks us, it would be unreasonable to support its strength, not to escalate the tissue damage. Therefore, we need to take care to keep immunology on appropriately low level, and more important, properly balanced.
Optimization of adrenal glands work
Adrenal glands are a couple of small glands, which produce, among others, the hormones responsible for stress, including cortisol. The more stressed we are, and this is quite easy in the current times, the higher concentration of cortisol circles in the system. When this state is maintained chronically, it may cause many health problems, such as putting on weight in characteristic places, sleep problems or bad state of mind.
Another hormone, which is produced by adrenal glands is dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). This hormone is characterized by a more beneficial effect than cortisol, as because of the interference with sex hormone balance, it may positively influence general health. Moreover, when cortisol rises, DHEA in the long run may drop. One of the effects of the preparation Moducare® is optimizing these two hormones so that they don’t cause health problems, but are beneficial to us.
Thorne Moducare® is recommended to people dealing with the imbalance of the immune system, especially in auto-immune diseases. It is also helpful to stressed people, who want to protect themselves against negative effects of cortisol overproduction.
Dosing according to the producer’s recommendations should be the most reasonable option.
The time of the treatment depends on the goal – people dealing with allergies should use the supplement in the allergy season or during the increased contact with allergens, while the patients with autoaggressive diseases should consult therapy time with a doctor or dietician.
In case of stress-related disorders it is best to take the supplement until the clear improvement has been noticed.
