Dutch term or phrase: parasitaire resistentie
Hi there, I am looking for the correct English translation of 'parasitaire resistentie'. I'll give the phrase to put it in context:

NL: Gevitaliseerd water kan de parasitaire resistentie van mens en dier verhogen.

Eng: Vitalised water helps to increase the parasitic/ parasite resistence of humans as well as animals.

Ik twijfel dus tussen: 'parasite resistence' of 'parasitic resistence'. Maar geloof dat het laatste ook iets te maken heeft met electriciteit...

English translation:parasitic resistance
Explanation:
But, I'd rather opt for "resistance to parasites", which rolls off the tongue a bit more smoothly than "parasitic resistance".
(Note: parasite resistance would indicate how resistant parasites are to e.g. antibiotics)
(Note 2: resitance and not resistEnce)
