The immune system is a highly complex and interrelated system that has two pathways to address foreign substances. The innate arm of the immune system is non-specific and targets anything that is viewed as foreign to the body whereas the adaptive system targets specific foreign substances. Both immune arms work together to protect the body against foreign substances.

Clinical study results indicate that larch arabinogalactan has the ability to modulate and support the two arms of the immune system in a positive manner through direct and indirect pathways within the gastrointestinal tract, so that the components of the different arms are optimized and appropriately respond when challenged by a foreign substance. The mechanism of this effect had been investigated and seem to include not only the indirect effects of lactic acid-producing bacteria and bacterial constituents on immune cells, the production of short chain fatty acid (SCFAs) and binding to SCFA receptors on leucocytes, but also direct effects on components of the immune system.

Specifically, the activity of natural killer cells, cytokines, and macrophages may be supported by larch arabinogalactan supplementation. In addition, ResistAid™ has antioxidant capacity which can be related to its content of polyphenolic compounds. The polyphenolic flavonoids present in ResistAid™ include taxifolin and quercetin, which have been shown to display a wide range of biochemical properties, including antioxidant and chemoprotective effects.

ResistAid™ is a proprietary natural immune support ingredient manufactured by Lonza. It is produced via a patented water-based extraction process from larch trees that grow in abundance in the United States. ResistAid™ consists of the soluble fiber arabinogalactan and bioactive polyphenolic flavonoids, and thus has antioxidant capacity.
