LIVE BETTER. Boost your antioxidants.* Revolutionary epigenetic science.
Immunocal Booster switches on Nrf2 – your critical survival gene.
- The Booster is powered by our exclusive Nrf2 catalyst™ containing the most powerful Nrf2 switch on the market today:
- SULFORAPHANE or broccoli seed extract. Sulforaphane activates the body’s natural detoxification system*
- SELENIUM teams up with glutathione to strengthen antioxidant defenses*
- A UNIQUE RED & GREEN SUPERFOOD BLEND with over 50 polyphenols and phytonutrients from organic fruits and vegetables
Epigenetics and the Nrf2 gene
In recent years, science’s ability to decode human DNA resulted in the new field of “epigenetics”, the study of how we can switch certain genes on and off. The Nrf2 gene is a powerful epigenetic switch that makes all our antioxidants work better.* Crucially, the sulforaphane in Immunocal Booster is one of the most powerful of the substances capable of switching on the Nrf2 gene.*
Booster & Immunocal work together
Immunocal provides the building blocks for the production of glutathione, your body’s master antioxidant. Our Booster is the perfect complement to Immunocal. The Booster does not reduce the amount of Immunocal you need for glutathione production, it optimizes the performance of the glutathione that Immunocal helps your body produce.*
The Immunotec Advantage
- Uniquely blends Nrf2 activation with superfoods
- Combines the most powerful Nrf2 activator in the marketplace, sulforaphane, with selenium to further amplify the effects of glutathione*
- Used with Immunocal, Immunotec is the only company that offers BOTH the critical building blocks PLUS the amplifier for optimal glutathione function*
- Boosts all your body’s antioxidant defenses*
- Reduces oxidative stress*
- Extends detoxification up to 3X longer*
- RED & GREEN superfoods provide additional nutrients

To comply with recent regulatory changes, Immunocal Optimizer’s name has changed to Immunocal Booster. However, the formula itself remains the same. The name changes in the U.S. and Canada only, but will remain Optimizer in Mexico.
Epigenetics represents a new understanding of genetics. “Epi” (Latin for “Above”) refers to the fact that there is a mechanism “above” our DNA that can modify how DNA codes are expressed. Epigenetic “switches” can turn on or off certain DNA sequences. These epigenetic differences can be inherited along with our DNA.
The Booster contains two components:
- An Nrf2 catalyst to enhance both glutathione and antioxidant action.
- A mixture of “Reds” and “Greens” which are phytonutrients (plant-based nutrients).
The Nrf2 gene is a gene (piece of DNA code) that enhances glutathione and antioxidant metabolism.
The Nrf2 gene needs to be “switched on” to work.
An Nrf2 “activator” turns this switch on.
Sulforaphane is a highly studied and scientifically validated Nrf2 activator.
Immunotec’s sulforaphane comes from broccoli seeds.
In simplest terms, the glutathione produced by the Immunocal will be enhanced.
Not recommended. Cellular glutathione production still requires the precursors found in Immunocal. Once produced by the cell, the glutathione effect will be enhanced.
Yes! It is encouraged to take the Booster with your Immunocal or Immunocal Platinum. The Booster was designed specifically to enhance your Immunocal.
Certainly. It has its own independent health benefits as well.
Not recommended. One of the Boosters main benefits is to get “more miles” out of your other supplements.
Selenium is an essential trace nutrient mineral. Its major role is its integration into the important enzyme called “Glutathione Peroxidase”.
Glutathione Peroxidase is a critical antioxidant enzyme produced by our body.
The term “Reds” or “Greens” signify the fact that the nutrients come either from fruits or vegetables respectively.
Being plant-based substances, these contain a multitude of nutrients including polyphenols, antioxidants, and many other phytonutrients. There are dozens of fruits, vegetables and herbs that go into the Reds and Greens mixture, each with their own specific benefits.
No. Fresh produce is always our best source of nutrients. However, many individuals fall short of their daily fruit and vegetable serving requirements. The Reds and Greens become more important in this situation.
Although Reds & Greens products make equivalence statements, these are not accurate and depends on many factors including fiber content, specific antioxidant vitamins and much more. Rest assured that our Reds & Greens are superior products on the market.
These terms are used interchangeably. They describe nutrients derived from plants.
A polyphenol is a class of phytonutrient with benefits that include antioxidation, inflammation reduction, supporting bone mineral density and other benefits beyond the scope of this FAQ. Recently popularized, polyphenols can be found in red wine, dark chocolate and diverse brightly-colored fruits and vegetables.
The Reds and Greens are from natural sources that normally contain some insoluble fiber.
Both Immunocal or the Booster can be mixed with any beverage as long as it is not hot. This is a personal taste preference. The strength of the taste can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the amount of fluid mixed in with the product.
One per day is the suggested dose. Taking more than one is not necessary.
Pregnant women should seek the advice of a health care practitioner prior to use.
In Canada only. This is a potential interaction with Selenium.
In Canada only. This is a potential interaction with Vitamin K, blueberry, alfalfa, chlorella, and cranberry.
No. The sweet flavor comes from the natural fruits used as well as stevia.
The Reds and Greens are certified organic, not for non-GMO.
Yes, the Booster is gluten-free.
Yes, the Booster is vegan.
