Allergy Research Group launches Aller-Aid™ L-92®!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Aller-Aid™ L-92® contains Lactobacillus acidophilus L-92®, a specific well studied strain, isolated from the human mouth, vagina, and GI tract, which has been shown to help balance Th1/Th2 and other immune cytokines.* L-92® is a sterilized immunobiotic dry cell powder. The formula is enhanced with Boswellia, Luteolin, and non-GMO vitamin C.*

Aller-Aid™ L-92®

In a preliminary, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, oral L-92® given to children affected the serum concentrations of thymus and activation-regulated chemokine in a time-dependent manner, enhancing the Th1/Th2 balance.*1 Another double-blind, placebo controlled study with 49 adult humans showed that L-92® contributes to the suppression of Th2-dominant inflammation.*2 The oral administration of L-92® stimulates various cytokines and chemokines leading to the enhancement of natural killer (NK) activity in the lungs.* Among the measured cytokines and chemokines, eotaxin, macrophage colony-stimulating factor, IL-1b, RANTES (regulated on activation, normal T cell expressed and secreted), and interferon-a were significantly increased in the lungs.*3
