Lunasin and Immunity 

Lunasin, a soy peptide, has been found to have significant health benefits according to various studies. Due to its ability to impact gene expression and cellular function at the epigenetic level, it affects multiple aspects of human health, including innate immunity.

The immune system has receptors that respond to germs and other environmental toxins and eliminate them. When these receptors are slow to respond, the body's innate defenses become less effective. A 2012 study at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis found that lunasin can help stimulate immune cell receptors, thus boosting innate immunity - the body's first line of defense against infections.
