Body Wise International to Pay over $3.5 Million to Settle Federal and State Deceptive Advertising Charges for “AG-Immune” Dietary Supplement

Did you know....  Body Wise Intl. was fined $3.5 million....Why?  Well... for the reasons listed below.  http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2005/01/bodywise.shtm 


This is what one Body Wise user wrote....

Allergies
I couldn’t be more excited about AG-Immune™! My daughter has had severe allergies since she was six months old. . . . I often had to miss work to care for her. Then Body Wise introduced AG-Immune and I began adding two capsules a day to her applesauce. I couldn’t believe the difference in her! No more sneezing, no more runny nose, and now she can play outside almost all day.”
(A “Consumer Notice” identical to that set forth in Paragraph 12(m)
appears in small print at the bottom of the page). (Exhibit E-2)
If you go to this link, you will see more claims just like this one.

I have included a few more things concerning the fine...  When you search for information on Body Wise, you will never find anything of a negative nature but this lawsuit.  

Isn't it funny....Someone says they had great results on Body Wise and the owner of Body Wise gets taken to court for having a product that people love and a product that works!

24 years of excellent products, 24 years of integrity, 24 years of people getting results...but cannot talk about it...

For me...16 years of products that work...  Healthy Lifestyle, Daily Exercise, plenty of water and Body Wise...  My choice for LIFE!

Questions and Answers about AIE10
What scientific methods are used to determine the presence of immunoactive molecules in Ai/E¹º that support cytokine pathways?
This is accomplished through a combination of laboratory tests that include electrophoresis, mass spectrometry, tissue cultures, and molecular function analysis.

What specific clinical measurement has been applied to such extracts?
Clinical and laboratory studies are available for download. See Research page.

What is an immune modulator?
Immune Modulation is a natural and effective regulated immune response that involves many aspects and components of the immune system through recognition, response, feedback and memory. This is an ordinary activity of healthy immune function.

How does "Modulation" differ from "Stimulation?"
There is a significant distinction between stimulating and modulating. Modulation is a natural process. That is not necessarily true of stimulation. Stimulation typically causes some portion of the immune system to experience a functional increase or "spike" for a short period of time. This increase is often followed by a reversal or balancing adjustment by the immune system to the old level or even lower. An immune modulator has the ability to both up-regulate, or down-regulate immune system activity as needed.

Should I take other nutritional supplements with Ai/E¹º or multiple products containing Ai/E¹º at the same time?
Certainly. Take whatever supplements you consider appropriate.  Ai/E¹º is not know to interfere with any other dietary supplement.

Can I take Ai/E¹º products for a long period of time?
There are now many people who have taken Ai/E¹º products continuously for many years with no reported ill effects or any apparent loss of immune support. Ai/E¹º is non-toxic and considered safe for life long consumption. Continued use appears to provide continued support.
