Allendale, NJ, 24 February 2010 – Lonza is pleased to announce the inclusion of its Larch Arabinogalactan (LAG)-based ResistAid™ in Ultimate Flora Advanced Immunity™, from ReNew Life.
The dual-protection probiotic supplement is formulated to support the natural immune defenses in the respiratory system and digestive tract. Ultimate Flora Advanced Immunity™ utilizes the immune-supporting and antioxidant properties of ResistAid™. Simultaneously, the multifunctional product employs ResistAid™ to assist the replenishing of beneficial intestinal bacteria and the support of immune cell production.
“ResistAid™ provides a natural fit for Ultimate Flora Advanced Immunity™, as it offers immune-supporting properties that align with ReNew Life’s standards for a product of the highest quality,” said Bryan Rodriguez, Technical Marketing & Scientific Affairs Manager, Lonza Inc. “As research continues to expand on optimizing the digestive and immune systems, we look forward to providing high quality ingredients backed by science to individuals seeking to support each of these health systems.”
In keeping with ReNew Life’s commitment to developing the best, most effective digestive care supplements, Ultimate Flora Advanced Immunity™ contains no fillers or binders and is made with only premium natural ingredients. An all-natural ingredient, ResistAid™ is produced by a specific extraction process utilizing steam-heating. This unique water-based extraction does not introduce any harsh chemicals to release the phenolic and arabinogalactan compounds from the plant matrix; therefore, the product remains pure and structurally unaltered after extraction.
ResistAid™ recently made news in October 2009, as a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study suggesting broadened immune benefits that include the adaptive immune response, which is a response to specific antigens. The study further showed that ResistAid™ may have an immunomodulatory effect, meaning that it supports the appropriate response to an antigen without indiscriminately enhancing other arms of the immune system that would not be utilized in a response.
