Dr. Oz Recommends ResistAid from Larch Arabinogalactan for the Immune System
–New Alomune with ResistAid Supplement Has Twice the Immune Benefit of Vitamin C–
NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — On the Dr. Oz Show, ResistAid, made from Larch Arabinogalactan (LAG), a safe natural extract sourced from the renewable Minnesota Larch tree and clinically proven to have several immune benefits, was presented to guest Celine Dion as proven support for her immune system. During the segment Dr. Oz noted, “I have actually looked high and low, far and wide to find something that might be of actual value to you. Your immune system will be better equipped.”
ResistAid is the proprietary LAG ingredient in Alomune, a new supplement clinically proven to activate the immune system. The LAG in Alomune is a safe, natural extract that has twice the immune benefit of Vitamin C. It also provides four grams of prebiotic dietary fiber, aiding the digestive tract, where 70% of the immune system is located.
Alomune with ResistAid is shown in clinical trials to help arm the body’s natural defenses by stimulating the immune system to help you stay healthy, in addition to providing twice the immune benefit of Vitamin C. LAG is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for consumption as a food and dietary ingredient, as well as a good source of dietary fiber.
In a recent LAG study, 204 healthy individuals, aged 18-70, participated in a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in Europe. The participants took either 4.5 grams of ResistAid with LAG daily or a placebo for 12 weeks. Those participants in the LAG group were 57 percent more likely to stay healthy on a primary immune health outcome than those taking placebo.
LAG supports the immune system in 2 different ways – by improving the innate immune response, which is with us from birth; and by improving the adaptive immune response, which is built over time and affected by exposure to various immune challenges presented by the environments that we live in. LAG also helps to support the body’s own friendly bacteria in the digestive tract, which makes up 70% of our immune system.
For more information on the health benefits of LAG, visit the Alomune Web site at www.alomune.com. Alomune supplements are sold at super centers and drug stores, including CVS and Walmart. A 10-day supply is suggested to retail for $9.99. Alomune is manufactured in the U.S. by Lonza, a global leader in the life-sciences industry and the world’s only supplier of food-grade larch.
