BASEL, Switzerland — The Lonza Group recently launched its Alomune daily immune supplements into the U.S. market, backing the product with clinical trials that show the supplement helps improve the body’s natural defenses for optimized immune health.
“Alomune works to naturally power your immune system and to keep it strong and more active,” stated Dan Johnston, brand spokesman.
The active ingredient in Alomune is proprietary ResistAid made with larch arabinogalactan, a natural extract sourced from renewable Minnesota Larch trees. LAG is an excellent source of dietary fiber, the company noted.
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% of the immune system.
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial involving 204 healthy adults, those taking Alomune were 57% 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.
