    Frequently Asked Questions:

    What are sterols and sterolins?

    Sterol is a plant fat found in all plant-based foods. Sterolin is its glucoside, a molecular structure joined to the sterol. Sterolin is easily destroyed, and without it, the sterol does not have the same immune-enhancing benefits. Moducare uses a proprietary process to preserve the ideal combination of sterols and sterolins.

    Why supplement?

    All fruits, vegetables and nuts contain sterols and sterolins, but the key is how much you absorb. Modern diets don't include enough raw fruits and vegetables. Food processing and certain cooking methods destroy sterols and sterolins. Sterols and sterolins are bound to the fibres in plants, making them hard to digest. Only 5% of what we eat gets absorbed. Poor digestion, especially in the elderly, further hinders absorption. Supplementing our diets with sterols and sterolins ensures that our immune system is operating at peak levels.

    How do you know if your immune system is dysfuntional?

    • frequent colds and flu
    • herpes (cold sore) outbreaks
    • allergies
    • continual fatigue
    • candida yeast overgrowth
    • painful joints and muscles
    • parasite infections
    • psoriasis and eczema
    • inflammatory disorders

    Is Moducare safe? Are there side effects?

    Yes it is safe. A long-term safety study involving 25,000 humans showed no side effects. In addition, standard toxicity studies, pre-clinical testing and clinical observations confirm Moducare's safety.

    Any contraindications or drug interactions?

    There are no known drug interactions and the only contraindication is that anyone with an organ (or other foreign tissue) transplant should NOT take Moducare, since an optimally functioning immune system could reject the transplant.

    Are sterols the same as steroids?

    No. The words sound similar but that is all. Moducare contains only sterols and sterolins, no steroids. Moducare has none of the negative effects or health risks associated with steroids.

    Is this an immune "booster" like echinacea?

    They key difference between echinacea and Moducare is that echinacea only stimulates the immune system, while Moducare balances it. Echinacea is not recommended for prolonged use, and is definitely not safe for people with autoimmune conditions. Moducare allows the immune system to regulate itself: "upregulating" or boosting an underactive response and "downregulating" an overactive one. Moducare is completely safe for long term use and for those with autoimmune conditions.

    Do I have to take it on an empty stomach?

    Moducare should be taken 1 hour before or 2 to 3 hours after a meal for maximum absorption. However it can be taken with certain foods, particularly fruits and vegetables. The important thing is not to take it with cholesterol ( animal fat ), including all meat, dairy, eggs, seafood, etc. Cholesterol has a very similar molecular structure and the two compounds "compete" for absorption.

    Caution: Diabetics should consult their physician before using.
