The Story Behind the Creation of Santivia.

Santivia® is the result of the efforts by a mother and daughter duo, Lynette and Melanie Lee. Their aim is to create awareness of the importance of a balanced immune system. Only with a balanced immune system can the body defend itself against illnesses, and the issue today is that many of us have a compromised immune system because of common factors they call the “PITTS”- Poor nutrition, Infections, Toxins, Trauma and Stress. Lyn and Mel because of their own personal journey to good health, wanted to create a product for the whole family that is effective, unique and truly balances the immune system and not just stimulate it. 

A Mother’s Journey
Lyn is a qualified pharmacist for over 50 years. She has always been on the forefront of health advances having worked in pharmaceuticals, medical, beauty and nutraceuticals for years. She found herself searching for a solution for her sickly daughter, Mel, who struggled with constant respiratory and ear infections and severe daily allergies. While as a Director of immune product and research company, she came across an active ingredient from USA called AiE10® which was supported by years of clinical and scientific studies, several patents and testimonials. She went through all the detailed data and decided to try it on Mel. To both their amazement, Mel’s incidence of illness reduced dramatically and after 6-8 months, even her allergies subsided.

Lyn who was also a partner in childcare centres noticed the increasing number of kids who were constantly absent from school. When one child got ill, they all passed it around and then they took the bugs home and circulated it amongst the family. The parents then brought it to their offices and to their colleagues. Lyn knew that she had to do something to help people. Her strong belief is that no matter your current health today, you can and should take steps to improve it. Many health problems can be avoided with a balanced immune system.

A Daughter’s Recovery
Mel was always sickly, especially with her long working hours and hectic travel schedule as a lawyer. She was plagued by allergies that sent her to frequent trips to the Ear Nose & Throat doctors. She believes that AiE10® was a real blessing because now she leads a normal active life, one without the constant discomfort of an itchy throat, irritated and bleeding nose, watery eyes and ear infection.  Seeing so many people succumb to poor health ranging from common flu to chronic illness, she felt a strong desire to have other people benefit the way she has and to empower them to achieve better health. She decided to join her mother in making this calling a reality.

Personal Testimonials

I have been using the unique active ingredient of Santivia Immune, AiE10®, for over 10 years. It has been proven in clinical studies to increase the Natural Killer cells in the immune system which are responsible for recognising and killing abnormal cells within the body such as tumour and cancer cells, as well as viruses.  Initially I took it when I thought I might be coming down with a cold or a urinary tract infection. I usually doubled the serving and in most cases I found, if I took it before the full onset of the infection I would not succumb to it. If I took it at the early stage of infection, the infection was mild and short lasting.  We have formulated Santivia Immune to combine the unique immune modulator of AiE10® and the powerful antioxidant Blueberry Fruit Extract. I truly believe that Santivia Immune can be beneficial to everyone- from young to the elderly. Being 70 years of age, I am concerned with the high incidence of cancer with statistics of 1 out of every 2 people so, I take this dietary supplement daily to keep my immune system in tip top condition. If I feel that I am exposed to infectious people, or if I am rundown or stressed, I will take higher servings than the daily maintenance serving of 1 capsule twice a day. I have been in many travel groups where everyone had a cold or flu except my family and me who were taking this immune product.”      - Lyn

“I was sick every 2 months with respiratory infections. I also developed severe daily allergies. Those who knew me then can attest to the constant sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, itchy throat and ear infections. Every morning I would wake up in a terrible state and required a whole box of tissues. Once my mother started me on AiE10® which I took religiously, I noticed a lower incidence of cough, cold and flu. What I didn’t expect was around 6-8 months later, I had a huge improvement in my allergies. Clearly, it had a positive effect on my immune system and it changed my life! We are really excited to have formulated an effective health supplement with powerful ingredients so that others can benefit too.”    - Mel
