Standardized Cistanche That Isn't So Standard
Primarily known for supporting longevity, our formula utilizes the plant extracts found in Cistanche to support more than just healthy aging factors. As a means of supporting an already-healthy inflammatory response and blood pressure, the echinacosides in this plant extract encourage healthy nervous system function for optimal immune senescence protection.
Standardized Cistanche provides powerful support against immune senescence. Researchers have found evidence that Cistanche extracts help support healthy glucose metabolism, promote a healthy inflammatory response and maintain already-healthy blood pressure and lipid levels.
Scientists have discovered that the echinacoside compound found in Cistanche plant extract stimulates the development of naive T cells and leads to a lower amount of memory T cells, thereby supporting a healthy immune response. Cistanche polysaccharides have also demonstrated positive modulatory effects on T cells and may support vaccine responsiveness. Cistanche also increased natural killer (NK) cell activity, resulting in a 15% life span increase in animal research. In addition, Cistanche and echinacoside have been found to scavenge free radicals, maintain healthy nervous system function and promote longevity.
A 12-week human study of a dietary supplement containing standardized Cistanche showed that it encouraged impressive immune factor support after supplementation. Subjects had a 11.7% increase in natural killer (NK) cell activity and a 20.2% increase in the ratio of CD4 to CD8 cells. An increased CD4/CD8 ratio is indicative of healthy, youthful immune function.
For those seeking the effects of Cistanche only, Life Extension® has created a standalone standardized Cistanche that contains the same echinacosides as in the Immune Senescence Protection Formula™.
