Dietary supplement for immune system

Alomune daily immune supplements have been shown in clinical trials to help improve the body’s natural defenses for optimized immune health, according to its manufacturer Lonza. The active ingredient in Alomune is proprietary ResistAid made with larch arabinogalactan (LAG), a safe, natural extract sourced from renewable Minnesota Larch trees. LAG is generally recognized as safe for consumption as a food and dietary ingredient and, according to the National Institutes of Health, is an excellent source of dietary fibre.
LAG also supports the immune system in two 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 per cent of our immune system.

In a double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial involving 204 healthy adults, those taking Alomune were 57 per cent more likely to stay healthy than those taking the placebo based on a primary immune health outcome.

Alomune was awarded the Good Housekeeping Seal upon evaluation by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute. Of the more than 25,000 dietary supplements sold in the U.S., fewer than 10 are backed by the Good Housekeeping Seal, and Alomune is the only immune supplement to receive this credential, the company said.
 
Alomune daily immune supplements are available in chocolate chewable tablets and berry stick packs for mixing into water and other beverages. A 10-day supply is suggested to retail for $9.99. Beginning in October 2013, Alomune supplements will be available at super centers and drug stores, including CVS and Walmart.
