Apogen® is a patented, highly concentrated, purified extract from the proprietary FEM-101 microalgae strain. It contains a unique profile of bioactive components, including phycobiliproteins – allophycocyanin (APC), C-phycocyanin (CPC); spirulina growth factor; polysaccharides; peptides; nucleic acids; amino acids, and trace elements. The research carried out in Taiwan and the USA has proven that Apogen® effectively supports the body's natural defense mechanisms. The results of the study were published in the prestigious magazine ”Journal of Medical Virology”.
Apogen® protects against a wide range of viruses, including influenza virus, enteroviruses, dengue virus (DENV), viruses responsible for intestinal diseases (including the Coxsackie virus) and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), responsible for most of the infections occurring in the autumn and winter season. It has been proven that Apogen® does not kill viruses, but instead, creates a specific protective shield that protects cells against the entry of pathogens. In addition, it strengthens the body's natural defense mechanisms, promotes the production of antibodies and cytokines.
Preparations containing Apogen® can be used by children as well as adults. They work well in the season of flu and colds. They are especially recommended for people with weakened immunity, who often catch common respiratory infections. They may also be prophylactically used by people exposed to frequent contact with ill persons (health care workers, children attending schools and kindergartens).
