Our customers frequently ask about the difference between our two main products - delPRO™ and del-IMMUNE V® - so we created this article to dive deeper into the science behind these products and explain how they help support optimal immune health.
delPRO is a probiotic that includes three strains of live lactic acid bacteria (L.acidophillus, L.casei, L.delbrueckii) and two strains of Bifidobacteria (B.longum and B.bifiidum) as well as a small amount (approx. 8 mg) of del-IMMUNE V.
It focuses on the gut area, targeting digestive problems with immune activation for local gut cells. delPRO is great for anyone, but especially for kids because a mild immune influence with gut health creates strong long-term immune protection and helps to normalize gut function. It is manufactured with no milk components so it's perfect for those with dairy sensitivities. We typically recommend 2-3 capsules per day for adults and two capsules a day for children under 12.
del-IMMUNE V, on the other hand, is made from the lysate of probiotic cells from the Lactobacillus rhamnosus (L.rhamnosus) strain. It does not have live probiotic cells. Similar to delPRO, it uses non-dairy media to avoid related reactions. del-IMMUNE V only contains cell fragments, and, as a result, is not a probiotic.
The process of making del-IMMUNE V mirrors the body’s natural microbiota (microflora). In a normally functioning immune system, the microbiota target receptor cells to help seek out compromises in the immune system. If human microbiota are healthy, the immune system helps protect the body by mustering protective immune reactions with other body’s systems like the nervous system, the digestive system and the hormones.
But if the body’s microbiota are unhealthy the immune system reactions can lead to inflammation, allergies and other contrary responses.
del-IMMUNE V helps the innate immune system naturally because of its probiotic nature. del-IMMUNE V contains positively working cell fragments and immediately begins to interact with immune cell receptors to help protect the body against all kinds of pathogens and threats including viruses, bacteria, traumas, environmental aggressive agents and stress.
