ViralGuard is your all year round guardian angel against bacterial and viral infections. ViralGuard has the right combination of ingredients specially formulated to prevent colds and flu taking over your body and also to give your body a helping hand during a cold or flu battle. Added to this potent immune booster are probiotics that play the most important role in your over all gut health.

Remember: An unhealthy gut leads to an unhealthy body.


Immune booster and protector ingredients

What do the PROBIOTICS in ViralGuard do to support the immune system?

The main place of action is in the gut's intestinal wall (the inner wall of the gut). The intestinal wall consists of cells of the gut and the micro flora (bacteria) covers the gut cells – the micro flora forms a layer on top of the cells of the gut.

If there is an imbalance between the good and the bad bacteria, the probiotics will restore the imbalance. An imbalance occurs especially when we take antibiotics to fight colds and flu that can lead to diarrhea and other gut discomfort. Probiotics will also assist with the health of the cells of the gut – it stimulates continuous renewal of gut cells and supplies energy to the cells of the gut.


The gut is potentially a very easy area for pathogens to enter our bodies if it is not healthy, or if there are not enough friendly bacteria (flora) in the gut. The friendly bacteria create a barrier to prevent pathogens (bad bacteria and viruses) from penetrating the body; to find a place to adhere to and grow; preventing damage to the epithelial cells in the intestinal tract.

Immune system

The probiotics in the ViralGuard range have the ability to modulate the immune system by either up- or down regulating immune responses; the immune response will be up-regulated against pathogens with the production of antibodies. This is a key function in the gut. When the probiotics down-regulate the immune response it prevents over-sensitivity to food and good bacteria commonly found in the digestive tract. This, in turn, prevents allergies and minimizes chronic digestive tract inflammation and diseases. Probiotics stimulate the cytokines (messenger cells of the immune system) to carry the message to be up or down-regulated.

The probiotics in ViralGuard also assist with the activation of antibody production.
