How Alomune Works
Our Amazing Ingredient, Larch Arabinogalactan
Almost everybody has heard about taking Vitamin C to stay healthy. Now there's something backed by clinical research that's shown better immune benefits than those shown in studies on Vitamin C. (Ref 6)
Made in the U.S. from renewable Minnesota Larch trees, larch arabinogalactan helps increase your body's ability to prepare for and respond to immune challenges. Larch arabinogalactan provides a safe and clinically proven way to naturally activate your immune system and keep you healthy and active all year long.
The Care You Take Everyday
Alomune is a daily immune supplement that contains larch arabinogalactan, a safe, natural extract of the larch tree clinically shown to have important immune benefits. Larch arabinogalactan has been shown to help the immune system in 3 different ways – helping support the body's own friendly bacteria in the digestive tract, which makes up 70% of the immune system (Ref 7) improving the innate immune response, which is with us from birth (Ref 3,4) and improving the adaptive immune response, which is built over time and exposure (Ref 2,5).
Alomune also adds to your daily fiber intake and has antioxidant activity similar to that of pomegranates (as measured by Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) per 100g).
Take Alomune Daily To Help You Stay Healthy
Many immune products are taken only when you don't feel well. Alomune is the immune supplement you take when you do feel well and want help staying that way.
A clinical trial on healthy adults suggested that 57% more people stayed healthy on measured outcomes taking Alomune than those taking a placebo (Ref 1). In comparing this clinical trial's results using NNT values to the results of 21 clinical trials on Vitamin C evaluated in an independent review (Ref 6), Alomune showed twice the immune benefit.
Details: 39 of 97 (40.2%) in arabinogalactan group stayed healthy on measured immune outcome compared to 23 of 90 (25.6%) in the placebo group. (40.2%-25.6%)/25.6%=57%
Take Alomune Daily To Help Arm Your Natural Defenses
A clinical trial on healthy adults suggested that those taking Alomune had significant increases over those taking placebo in the non-inflammatory, IgG adaptive immune response, when exposed to an immune challenge. (Ref 5)
The body's natural defenses are made up of different components that work together to help it stay healthy. One key component is the adaptive immune response, which the body builds to defend against specific immune challenges it encounters.
Increases in the IgG adaptive immune response are generally accepted to indicate better defenses.
Details: the study showed significant increases in mean serum pneumococcal IgG antibody levels in the arabinogalactan group versus the placebo group following pneumonia vaccination - 86% and 80% at 51 and 72 days, respectively, for the 18C serotype and 95% and 82% at 51 and 72 days, respectively, for the 23F serotype.

Collection of Personal Information
We may gather information from you automatically through site visit data, through data collection via "cookies" and other methods described below, as well as information you provide us through the use of online forms and registration.
Our web servers may collect the name of the domain you used to access the Internet, your IP address, the website you came from and visit next, your usage of the Website including pages viewed, browser type, duration and frequency of visits, and other data. If we collect this information, it is aggregated to measure critical data such as the number of site visits, page views, average visiting time and other statistics about visits to particular sites. We may collect this data ourselves or we may use one or more third party service providers to do so.
We do not collect personally identifiable information about you on this site without your knowledge, and all such information is collected directly from you. There are certain services or areas of the Website, such as a section where you can order products or access services, where we will ask that you register and provide us with needed information about you and/or your company. This information may include information about you and your company such as your name, title, company, address, telephone number, email address, interests and other similar types of information. If you provide us with your address or email address, we may use this information to respond to your message, notify you about products or services, or otherwise contact you for marketing purposes from time to time. You may opt out of communications at any time by following the instructions contained in any such message or by emailing email@example.com.
We also collect information through the use of "cookies". A cookie is a small text file we place on your computer to personalize your Website experience that is either used for the duration of the browsing session (a "session cookie") or saved on your hard drive to identify you and provide you with a consistent browsing experience over time (a "persistent cookie"). Our cookies cannot read data off of your hard drive, read cookie files created by other web sites or track any personal information about you. Most Internet browsers allow you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored.

To support and enhance the Website, we may serve advertisements and also allow third parties advertisements. These advertisements are sometimes targeted and served to particular users and may come from third party companies called "ad networks."

Advertisements served through the Website may be targeted to users who fit a certain general profile category may be based on anonymized information inferred from information provided to us by a user, including personal information (e.g., gender or age), may be based on the Website usage patterns of particular users, or may be based on your activity on third party services. We do not provide personal information to any ad networks for use outside of the Website. To increase the effectiveness of ad delivery, we may deliver a file (known as a "web beacon") from an ad network to you through the Website. Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for us and for advertisers.
