Megamune At a Glance
The immune system operates with two arms: the innate and adaptive branches. The innate immune response is rapid and can occur within 4 hours of immune activation. However, innate immune reactions are not very specific and can affect our own tissue in the body! MegaMune™ is formulated with immune soothing ingredients to help maintain a healthy immune response.** For example, green tea extract promotes T-regulatory cells that help calm and balance the immune system.8 Other synergistic ingredients like selenium, sulforaphane, cranberry polyphenols, and pomegranate polyphenols can support the body’s natural detoxification process.9-12
The adaptive immune response, on the other hand, is slower to respond. However, when it is activated, it is extremely precise and thus much gentler on host tissues. MegaMune™ supports the adaptive immune response by promoting T-helper cell production, such as CD4+ and CD8+ cells.
The key to maintaining a healthy immune response is dictated by the gut microbiome which helps balance both adaptive and innate immunity. In fact, the gut is home to about 70% of immune cells and acts as the mother board of the entire immune system. The combination of green tea extract and fruit polyphenols were added to MegaMune™ in order to enhance microbial diversity within the powerful gut microbiome.
MegaMune™ provides robust immune support that targets the immune system both on the cellular level and within the microbiome to provide a solid immune foundation. Take MegaMune™ any time of the year to keep your body vibrant and strong no matter what the outside world throws at you!

MegaViron At Glance
MegaViron™ is an unrivaled, rapid-acting immune supplement formulated with potent herbs with antioxidant properties for seasonal immune support. MegaViron™ is designed to be taken on an as-needed basis for maximum immune support whenever you need it most. This product was designed to support 3 key features of immunity: the surveillance system, clean-up crew, and de-escalation team. The herbal ingredients in MegaViron™ work synergistically to support the body’s detection and eradication processes within a healthy immune response.
The immune surveillance team consists of macrophages, white blood cells, T cells, and interferons, which help the body detect foreign matter. Supporting the immune surveillance team is necessary to maintaining a healthy immune response. MegaViron helps maintain a healthy immune response by promoting the surveillance team’s efforts in the body including support of the body’s detection and phagocytosis processes.1-4 Plus, MegaViron promotes interferons and white blood cells (WBC) function, two important groups of immune cells that act like watch dogs.4-6
There is also a need for a robust clean-up crew to help rapidly remove foreign matter from the system. For example, red ginseng and Reishi mushroom beta-glucans are known to promote macrophage and natural killer (NK) cell production.7,8 Macrophages locate foreign matter and impact how it spreads. NK cells, support the body’s process to rid itself of impacted cells. To reinforce the clean-up crew, olive leaf extract, curcumin and NAC work together to support the body’s natural process of deactivating enzymes to remove them as a potential source of energy for foreign matter.2,9-11
Within a healthy immune response is the process of de-escalation, which helps the body to calm itself after a healthy immune response to foreign matter. A de-escalation team supports the body’s process in easing tensions and promoting the restoration of balance in the body. Calming ingredients such as N-acteyl-cysteine (NAC), curcumin, sea buckthorn polyphenols, Boswellia serrata, Chinese skullcap, Tinospora cordifolia, Andrographis paniculata, and stinging nettle root can help support balance in the immune system.2,12-19 MegaViron is a triple action, fast-acting immune formula designed to support immune surveillance, ecacy, and balance whenever you need it the most. Take control of your health and gain peace of mind with this unique, comprehensive immune support formula.

When you think of supporting your immune system, you may think of consuming fresh foods, getting adequate sleep, or taking oral supplements like vitamin C, zinc, or probiotics. But did you know that you can quickly stimulate your immune system by targeting the immune tissue in your mouth? The soft tissue in your mouth that composes the inside of your lips and cheeks is known as buccal tissue and is a vital component of overall immunity! In fact, buccal tissue is capable of sending rapid signals to other parts of the immune system in a matter of minutes.
Megacidin At a Glance
Compared to the deeper, more internal tissues, our mouths more frequently encounter the barrage of microbes present in the outside world. Luckily, our oral immune system is quick to respond and well-equipped to fend off foreign invaders. Saliva and buccal tissue are rich in immune cells, such as T lymphocytes and immunoglobulins, that remove pathogens before they have a chance to further invade our bodies.1 This oral immune system also sends messages to numerous other tissues in the body, preparing our internal defenses before the pathogen even arrives at these distant sites. This gives us an enormous head start in fighting infection!
In addition, the buccal mucosa contains special gateways, always known as microfold (M) cells, which allow certain molecules to enter the bloodstream, while simultaneously guarding against pathogens.2 While other mucosal sites in the gut, lungs, and urogenital areas also contain M cells, the buccal tissue is the most permeable. This means that it rapidly absorbs beneficial compounds like probiotics, herbs, and some nutrients.
MegaCidin™ is a robust, next-generation throat spray that contains a unique and potent combination of ingredients clinically proven to support overall immunity. MegaCidin™ harnesses the power of probiotic spores along with the highly effective botanical mixture, known as Biocidin®, to provide synergistic immune support for every climate and season.
The probiotics in MegaCidin™, Bacillus subtilis HU58 and Bacillus coagulans (SC-208), are scientifically shown to support a healthy immune system by reducing inflammatory cytokines and producing protective compounds like -defensin.3,4 Additionally, probiotic throat sprays are shown to support healthy oral immunity in children.5
MegaCidin™ also contains an herbal blend known as Biocidin® which includes milk thistle, echinacea, goldenseal, shiitake extract, white willow bark, garlic, grapeseed extract, black walnut, tea tree oil, oregano oil, and several others. Many of these healing plants have been used in traditional medicine for hundreds of years, yet their beneficial qualities have only recently been proven by modern scientific research.
Human clinical trials conducted with Biocidin® show that this botanical mixture can support the immune system in as little as 30 minutes after spraying into the mouth.6 In fact, a single dose of Biocidin® can support the production of one of the most important immunoglobulins, known as secretory IgA, or sIgA.6 This immunoglobulin is found on mucosal surfaces, such as the gut, saliva, and respiratory system, and acts as one of the first lines of defense within the immune system.
Indeed, the number of studies completed on each individual herb in Biocidin®, joined with overwhelming support from the functional medicine community, provides abundant evidence for the use of these herbs in supporting the body’s innate defense system. Combined with the immune-supporting functions of Bacillus subtilis HU58 and Bacillus coagulans SC-208, MegaCidin™ is a preferred, all-natural remedy for healthy immune function. Whether you’re traveling or staying home, just a few sprays a day is all it takes to have a healthier immune system.
