Why our form
ResistAid® is produced by first steam-heating larch wood chips to extract the phenolic and arabinogalactan compounds, and then drying the resulting extract. The patented extraction method requires no harsh chemicals to release the compounds from the wood matrix; therefore, the extract is structurally unaltered post-extraction. Its efficacy is supported by several studies on this specific ingredient.
