Most of the research on hyperimmune egg comes from the manufacturer of a specific brand name product (Immune26, Legacy for Life). This and related products contain the proprietary ingredient, Egcel, which is a specific hyperimmune egg extract. According to product information, this product is produced first by repeatedly immunizing hens with at least 24 inactivated bacteria including Shigella dysenteriae, Staphylococcus epidermidis and simulans, Escherichia coli (E. coli), Salmonella enteritidis and typhimurium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and at least 6 species of Streptococcus.
Special Precautions & Warnings:Children: A non-commercial purified hyperimmune egg extract has been safely used in children aged 2-24 months in a research study lasting 4 days. But, it is not known if commercially available hyperimmune egg products marketed as dietary supplements are safe for children.
Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of hyperimmune egg during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
Egg allergy: Hyperimmune egg is made from chicken eggs. There is some concern that people who are allergic to chicken eggs might also be allergic to hyperimmune egg products.
