The gummies contain a heat-killed strain of bacteria, known as a paraprobiotic or postbiotic
Giellepi has announced the launch of a line of finished products dedicated to the support of the immune system. The company has introduced ShielDefence, a year-round soft gummy supplement for immune support.
The immunobiotic gummies containing Lactobacillus paracasei MCC1849 and vitamins, are designed for consumers looking for ways to enhance their immune system and stay healthy throughout the year.
Unlike common lactic acid bacteria, MCC1849 is a heat-killed strain of L. paracasei (also known as paraprobiotic) which, the company says, exhibits a powerful stimulating effect on the production of IL-12, an important factor in immune system function. Paraprobiotics, or postbiotics, are non-viable probiotics or inactivated probiotics, which when administered in sufficient amounts confer benefits to the host.
