Unlike the numerous products on the market that merely stimulate and excite the immune system, the Apan supplements feed the body to cause a modulated pansystemic immune cascade. Studies have shown the Apan has increased the body’s immune response thousands of times within 24 hours.” – Man Found Standing, Medicine Man
