Wellmune WGP Helps Stressed Women Stay Healthy, Study Shows

This is the first published study exploring the effects of Wellmune WGP on women, says Richard Mueller, CEO, Biothera.

Immune-health beta-glucan ingredient Wellmune WGP may help stressed women stay protected against symptoms of cold, flu, and everyday stressors, according to a new study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition.

“The study found that moderately-to-highly stressed women experienced fewer upper respiratory tract infection symptoms and higher energy levels while taking Wellmune WGP…” says the ingredient’s supplier Biothera (Eagan, MN).

In the placebo-controlled trial, 77 healthy women were prescreened for moderate levels of psychological stress. They were given either a placebo or 250 mg of Wellmune WGP daily for 12 weeks. According to researchers, only 10% of the Wellmune group reported upper respiratory tract infection symptoms compared with 29% for the control group.

Additionally, subjects were evaluated using the Profile of Mood States psychological survey to assess changes in mental/physical energy levels (vigor) and overall well being (global mood state). The women taking Wellmune WGP showed a 41% improvement in vigor compared with 7% in the control group, and a 29% improvement in global mood state compared with 16% in the placebo group.

This is the first published study exploring the effects of Wellmune WGP on women, says Richard Mueller, CEO, Biothera.
