Micronutrients have the task of responding specifically to attacks by pathogens. They shield our immune system by working in synergy. Thus, the interaction of the individual elements contained in a nutrient composition is a decisive factor. The interaction of micronutrients is very complex. For the human body to derive optimum benefit from micronutrients, a powerful combination of vitamins, minerals, and secondary plant compounds is required.
In the human organism, micronutrients target the relevant germ or the focus of inflammation. Viruses and bacteria thus encounter a potent natural enemy. Antioxidants neutralize the chronic stress that triggers inflammation and block the infectious invaders. Numerous in vivo, in vitro and clinical studies have demonstrated positive effects of these special micronutrient formulations.
A finely judged combination of micronutrients ensures a significant cellular immune response.

A closer look at plant extracts
Scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute examined several plant extracts – some individually, others in the form of a micronutrient mixture. The results showed that brown algae, known for their numerous immunomodulatory properties, mobilize the body’s defense.
- Fucoidan (e.g., in brown algae extract) stimulates natural killer cells, macrophages (phagocytes) and cytokines.
- Lychees provides high levels of antioxidants, including ascorbic acid, flavonoids and anthocyanins.
- Chokeberries have three times the antioxidant potential of blueberries – their anthocyanin content is even more than four times higher.
- Sour cherries are anti-inflammatory and a reliable source of polyphenols and vitamin C.
- White mulberries contain a wealth of immunomodulating phytonutrients and have a balancing effect on blood sugar levels and a stimulating effect on fat metabolism.
The fundamental principle of Cellular Medicine relates to the smallest unit in the human body, the cell.
