is an immune system enhancing product made from a unique strain of
beneficial bacteria. It was developed in
Russia in the 1980's and used after the Chernobyl incident to help
protect against radiation sickness.
Del-Immune V™ is widely used today to support and regulate immune
function, aid recovery and convalescence in those already ill. Its
modulating effects make it a useful adjunctive treatment for
allergies, where there is an underlying imbalanced immune state.
Del-Immune V™ is reported to be safe and effective for both children
and adults, including babies over 6 months, and during
breastfeeding. The capsules may be opened and added to food or drink
with no undesirable taste issues. It is available from many health
stores clinics and websites.
Capsules of Del-Immune V
contain over 2+billion cell wall fragments
of lactobacillus rhamnosus and the usual dosage is 1 or more capsules a day or as recommended by a
In the 1980s, Russian had to face the problems of the Chernobyl
accident and anthrax poisoning that occurred due to contamination
from biological warfare research. Subsequent research concluded
vaccines and antibiotics would not be effective and research efforts
focused on finding a product to "activate, enhance, and to quickly
boost" natural immune system activity.
More than 600 different products were examined, including many
strains of lactobacillus. Only one product showed dramatic immune
system activity: the parent product to Del-Immune V. Researchers demonstrated that
proteins and other components in the cell wall "activate and excite"
an important switch in our immune system.
After confirming the potency of their newly discovered
lactobacillus, identified as a lactobacillus bulgaricus, the Russian
microbiologists and immunologists successfully digested (lysed) the
cell to produce "cell wall fragments." The idea came from 1975
Bulgarian research, which reported that cell wall fragments have
potent and safe immunological benefits. The activity is attributed
to the cell wall fragments containing proteins and other substances
that activate the immune system which protects the body against infectious
and foreign invaders.
This switch is called a cytokine, which is more specifically
identified as IFN a. This cytokine acts as a messenger to
Interleukin I and VI. These are like "superhighways" into the immune
system, and they stimulate essential T cells, B cells, NK cells and
other systems. These are important white cells that protect against
or eliminate infections. Interleukin I protects internal bodily
systems that are wet (i.e. lungs, throat, nose, kidneys).
Interleukin VI is anti-inflammatory and helps in building bone.
(Proteins and other components important to the immune system are
manufactured within the healthy lactobacillus cells. But these important proteins, complex sugars and
other structures exist on the inside of the cell so they are not
visible to the immune system.)
Strains of lactobacilli bacteria have
been used to produce cheese, yogurt and other food products
throughout history. Other strains of lactobacilli occur naturally in
the nose, throat and the gastrointestinal tract. The lactobacillus
cell wall fragments activate switches (called cytokines) that
stimulate T, B and NK
cells that serve as the army that helps protect us from a wide
variety of pathogens.
Due to it's non-specific action on the immune system Del-linmune V
has a broad range of applications for viral, bacterial and
fungal infections, and can be taken as a preventative for those with
low immunity. The regulatory effect on the immune system means
Del-Immune V does not cause undesirable over-activation of immune
