Immune function is an important aspect of a healthy metabolic state, particularly for aging subjects. Probiotics impact immunomodulatory functions through the activation of toll-like receptors. Recent published studies demonstrate that probiotics activate innate immunity by enhancing adaptive immune response. The NPN License Approval for Floradapt™ Mature Immune Defense allows for the following claims: 

  • Helps immune function*

According to Mike Kolifrath, Vice President, Sales and Marketing of the Probiotics Division at Kaneka, “Mature Immune Defense is a potent immune enhancer in the Floradapt family of products. Its clinical strains have been verified through three published studies. Probiotic product formulators will appreciate its clinical pedigree, since relatively few probiotic strains have demonstrated immunomodulatory properties. In fact, the administration of Mature Immune Defense positively impacted the elderly’s nutritional status, which tends to be sub-optimal in aged subjects.” 

Floradapt™ Mature Immune Defense is part of Kaneka’s Probiotic Portfolio, which is comprised of products based on a mechanistic approach to identify optimal strains for specific health applications. Our strain library collection has over 1,000+ strains strategically sourced from populations around the world with conserved microbiomes.  Floradapt™ includes strains for Cardio, Digestive, Intensive G.I., Gum Health, Mature Immune Defense, Vaginal Health, and Urinary Tract. Floradapt’s efficacy is rooted in its clinical strains and accomplished through a unique mechanism of action (MoA) not seen in other probiotic products.
