A combination of extracts from Acacia catechu and Scutellaria baicalensis may significantly increase antibodies in response to a flu vaccine in healthy adults, says a new study conducted by KGK Science Inc.
Probi, along with nine other Swedish firms, are to enter into a collaboration with Örebro University that looks to use probiotics as a needle-free delivery vehicle to transport vaccines into and across the body.
Dietary supplements containing fucoidan from seaweed may amplify the immune response to seasonal influenza vaccinations in the elderly, a population known to have an inadequate immune response to ‘flu vaccines, says a new study from Japan.
A green algae supplement has been shown to boost the immune
system's response to the flu vaccine in people aged 50-55 years
old, although the findings, published in the Canadian Medical
Association Journal, were not consistent...
Two recent studies suggest that the flu vaccine, currently around
50 to 60 per cent effective in preventing illness in older people,
might be even more effective when supplemented with calories,
vitamins, minerals, and exercise.
