Can immune cells survive being dried, then stomach acid?
Jan 26, 2002


Can anyone tell me if immune cells can survive being dried then going through the stomach's acids to add benefit and support to a person's immune system in the intestinal environment?

If so, how? And if not, why?

There's a product that makes this claim but the question above bothers me. I want to know if it's possible or is it just "snake oil"?

Thank you, Lynn

Response from Dr. Young

Lynn- sounds like snake oil to me.

Ok,Mr. Dr. Al Cohen, it's Bo Bo Part II
