IMMUSE is Kyowa’s postbiotic that delivers a breakthrough approach to more comprehensive immune support. Over 30 published clinical studies, including 15 human trials, support IMMUSE as an immune activator. This means that the ingredient proactively supports the immune system through a novel method of action that activates plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs).
The pDC, a rare type of immune cell, functions as a key leader of the immune system and has been shown to activate pivotal cells, such as NK, Killer-T, Helper-T, and B cells, for a more comprehensive approach to immune support.
Founded in 2002, Quifaest is committed to manufacturing food supplements and pharmaceutical grade herbal medicines and remedies that feature state-of-the-art ingredients, all to bring excellence in nutrition to Mexico.
“I am so glad to announce that IMMUSE is now available in Mexico,” Quifaest Group's CEO Marciano Mateos said. “Our corporate mission has found a perfect match with Kyowa. This is a great partnership that will promote dietary supplements that are manufactured with very high-quality ingredients supported by science.”
