ResistAid keeps Kleenex away

Natural immune support ingredient extracted from North American larch trees helps stave off sneezes.

The latest research study on ResistAid™ found that supplementation with Lonza’s proprietary immune support ingredient was associated with a statistically significant reduction (23 percent) of the number of cold episodes in comparison with placebo.

In this new multi-center, placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized clinical trial, researchers measured the effect of supplementation with ResistAid on naturally acquired common cold episodes. In the study, 199 healthy adults aged 18 to 70 were divided into two groups, taking either a daily ResistAid supplement of 4.5 grams or a placebo for 12 weeks.

ResistAid is a natural immune support ingredient extracted from North American larch trees, consisting of larch arabinogalactan and bioactive polyphenols. It has a number of technical properties, which make it formulation-friendly in applications such as dietary supplements and functional foods. ResistAid can be used in standalone form or combined with other products to increase functionality. It is self-affirmed GRAS with notification provided to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
