Proper Nutrition SeaVive 500 mg. - 90 Capsules
Proper Nutrition SeaVive is uniquely formulated to address total immune health by combining SEACURE, Colostrum 80/40, and Beta glucan. SEACURE supports healthy immune function at the gut level by providing bioactive peptides and biogenic amines from hydrolyzed white fish that promote structural integrity and function of the intestinal mucosa. Colostrum 80/40 is specially prepared to remove the fat, casein, and lactose and provides a minimum of 40% IgG. Potent beta glucan stimulates macrophage activity and mediates immune response.
Commitment to Quality
The bovine colostrum powder used in Proper Nutrition products is produced from pure bovine-origin colostrum liquid collected from controlled, healthy Grade A dairy herds. These dairy herds are of U.S. origin and are fed diets free of animal products, antibiotics and hormones. Proper Nutrition does not use colostrum from European or New Zealand sources, and BSE has never been detected in the U.S. PNI's colostrum ingredient is produced in cooperation with La Belle, Inc., in state-of-the-art facilities located in Washington and California and registered with both the California and Washington State Licensing Divisions as food processing facilities. These production facilities meet the requirements of the 1994 Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act, using GMP and HACCP procedures. They are also registered USDA establishments for the preparation of veterinary biological (pharmaceutical) products.
All incoming colostrum liquid is quality control checked for pH, total solids, and specific gravity. This Q.C. check assures that only the best liquid colostrum is used to produce the spray-dried powders.
High quality colostrum contains a variety of active immunoglobulins and antibodies for many pathogens that affect all mammals. The active antibodies for Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp., Helicobacter pylori, Clostridium spp., and Staphylococcus spp. have been identified. The activity of these antibodies and antiviral agents has been confirmed using Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA).
The immunoglobulin activity of colostrum in Proper Nutrition products is measured using the latest Radial Immuno Diffusion (RID) technology. Immunoglobulin G (IgG) is the principal antibody found in colostrum and includes the subclasses IgG1 and IgG2. IgG1 makes up approximately ninety-percent of the total IgG content in colostrum. IgM and IgA are also found in colostrum. IgM is the first class of antibodies to appear after an antigen invades the body. IgA is the next major class of immunoglobulins found in colostrum. IgA serves as a first line of defense against bacterial and viral antigens. IgA is transported across epithelial cells to be found in intestinal tract mucus, bronchial mucus, saliva and tears.
Every lot of colostrum used in Proper Nutrition products is assayed for IgG content, microbiological contamination (total plate count, coliforms, Salmonella spp., Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and fungi), moisture, fat, protein, antibiotics, total carbohydrates, ash, bulk density, and scorched particle. Particle size testing is also included on every produced lot of colostrum used.
SeaVive Questions & Answers
Is SeaVive safe, especially for children, and pregnant and nursing women?
Yes, on all counts. SeaVive’s major ingredients — Colostrum, Beta glucan, and Seacure are all safe dietary supplements. The final ingredient in SeaVive is the familiar Vitamin C.
Note: pregnant or nursing women should always consult with their physician before taking any medication or nutritional supplement.
What is Colostrum?
Colostrum is the pre-milk fluid secreted by mammalian mothers after giving birth. Colostrum acts to transfer valuable immune factors from the mother to the newborn. As our bodies age, they produce less of the immune factors needed to ward off disease and infection. Supplemental colostrum can help replenish these stores.
Why bovine (cow) Colostrum?
Research shows that bovine colostrum is not species specific and, therefore, is effective in humans. In fact, bovine colostrum contains many times more of the immune factors needed than human colostrum. The colostrum they use in SeaVive is of excellent quality, with more than 40% IgG and is free of lactose, casein, and fat.
What is IgG?
IgG is one of the five main classes of immunoglobulins (Ig) or antibodies that participate in immune function. It is an antibacterial, anti-toxic, and antiviral protein, and is the only class of antibodies to transfer through the placenta.
I'm taking a Colostrum supplement now. Is SeaVive a substitute for that supplement?
Yes, and much more.
Can I take too much Colostrum?
No, but It is always prudent to limit your dosage of any supplement to the recommended dosage.
What is Beta glucan?
B-1,3-D glucan is a specific polyglucoside molecule (glucose rings linked in a chain) that activates nonspecific immune system cascades. B-1,3-D glucan is found naturally in all living things in combination with B-1,6-D glucan linkages. The beta glucan in SeaVive is over 60% B-1,3-D glucan.
Where does the Beta glucan in SeaVive come from?
The beta glucan in SeaVive is obtained from isolated cell walls of bakers yeast, not the whole yeast.I
I am yeast-sensitive. Will I have a problem?
No. The beta glucan in SeaVive as an isolate does not contain any yeast protein that will cause a reaction.
I am taking Beta glucan now. Is SeaVive a substitute for that supplement?
Yes, and much more.
Can I take too much Beta glucan?
No, but like with any dietary supplement, you are advised to follow the recommended dosage.
Seacure aids the immune system indirectly by helping to correct pathogenic bowel permeability to prevent hazards from passing through the gut membrane to infect internal organs.I
I’m taking Seacure as a dietary supplement. Is SeaVive a replacement for Seacure?
No. For maximum value, at least six capsules of Seacure should be taken daily. The smaller amount of Seacure in SeaVive acts mainly as a potentiating agent for Colostrum and Beta glucan and not as a clinical aide for such things as wound healing or irritable bowel syndrome. That’s the job for Seacure.
Why Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is well recognized for its immune-supportive properties.
How much SeaVive should I take and when should I take it?
Unless a doctor recommends otherwise, they recommend one (500 mg) to three (1.5 g) capsules daily. SeaVive should be taken on an empty stomach with plenty of water.
When should I take one capsule per day and when do I need three capsules per day?
If you are in good health and seek the day-to-day protection against disease and infectious organisms, one capsule per day will suffice. Take three SeaVive daily, however, if you have been exposed to a disease or infection or if you are suffering from an illness. A key to prevention or recovery from disease and infection is a fully activated, peak performing immune system. Incidentally, you might also consider taking three capsules of SeaVive at the onset of the cold and flu season.
I’m taking three capsules of SeaVive per day, may I take all three at once?
How should I store SeaVive?
SeaVive should be stored in a dry place away from excessive heat. Refrigeration is not necessary.
What kind of capsule is SeaVive contained in?
SeaVive is encapsulated in clear, natural, size 0 beef gelatin capsules.
