Cautions/ Things to note

Properties of selected ingredients:

Lysozyme and beta-d-glucans are well documented in scientific literature, including research that describes their properties reaching far beyond their nutritional values.

Lunasin​ – is a natural protein, found in soy, barley, and rye. Discovered in 1996 by Dr. Alfredo Galvez (USA) , is an unusual protein that does not undergo degradation in the digestion system. It’s so far the first and the only yet discovered ​epigenetic​ foodstuff, which is a great hope for humanity and a breakthrough in many medical fields.
Bioactive peptides are small protein fragments derived from enzymatic hydrolysis of food proteins, fermentation with proteolytic starter cultures, and gastro-intestinal digestion. These peptides have positive impacts on a number of physiological functions in living beings. Lunasin, a soy-derived bioactive peptide, is one of the most promising among them. Lunasin encoded within 2S albumin (GM2S-1) gene, identified as a novel peptide extracted from soybean seed. It is composed of 43 amino acid residues with a molecular weight of 5.5 kDa.
Extensive scientific studies have shown that lunasin have important health benefits that include antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties​, ​anti-aging, ​asthma and allergy immunotherapy​, antioxidative, ​anti-cancerous​ properties (e.g. ​colorectal cancer​, ​breast cancer​), ​immunotherapy for lymphoma​, fighting ​leukemia​ and blocking the inflammation that accompanies such chronic health conditions as diabetes, ​Osteoarthritis​,​ ​cardiovascular disease​ and stroke​,​ as a ​vaccine adjuvant ​and also age related brain diseases (e.g. ​Alzheimer’s​ ​and​ Parkinson’s​)
Could play a vital role in the regulation of ​cholesterol​ biosynthesis in the body. Its high bioavailability and heat stable nature protein, allow its potential use as a dietary supplement.

Lunasin is a novel therapeutic agent for targeting melanoma cancer stem cells Combating malignant melanoma with the multifaceted soydervied peptide lunasin.

Lunasin in no way interferes with either traditional treatments or even disease diagnosis.

Beta-D-Glucans –​ (beta 1,3/1,6 D-glucans) are the sole active ingredient in yeast. It is derived from the cell walls of baker’s yeast (saccharomyces cerevisiae). Beta glucans are known by immunologists for their amazing immune enhancing properties. They fully activate macrophages in the body which are one of the primary defenses of the immune system. Macrophages trap and consume foreign invaders such as bacteria, viruses and parasites.
Beta-D-Glucans effect on cancer is very interesting, because they have been clinically shown to prevent metastasis in a variety of 3 ways:
● Cytotoxicity – By stimulating white blood cells (macrophages & natural killer cells) to stop tumor growth.
● Anti-angiogenesis – Preventing cancer cells from developing the network of blood vessels that is required to feed tumors.
● Treatment Restoration – Reversing the damage done by chemo and radiation therapies, glucans restore bone marrow injury by stimulating red blood cell production.
Lysozyme​ (also called muramidase) – a highly stable cationic protein and the slowest-acting of the known enzymes, but highly potent. It was first described by Alexander Fleming, who considered his greatest discovery not penicillin, but lysozyme. It is an antimicrobial enzyme produced by animals that forms part of the innate immune system. Since lysozyme is a natural form of protection from Gram-positive pathogens like ​Bacillus​ and ​Streptococcus​, it plays an important role in immunology of infants in breastfeeding.
Our bodies skin is a protective barrier due to its dryness and acidity, but the conjunctiva (membrane covering the eye) is, instead, protected by secreted enzymes, mainly lysozyme and defensin. However, when these protective barriers fail, conjunctivitis results.
Infection management​ – Lysozyme may attack polysaccharides in the cell walls of many bacteria. It is most effective against gram-positive bacteria such as Streptococci and Staphylococci species. Lysozyme may also help other types of infection by gram-positive bacteria like in the course of Conjunctivitis.
Wound repair support​ –​ Lysozyme may support phagocytosis which can aid in wound repair. It may also help with other necrotic and degenerative processes.
Bladder health support​ – O​ ften combined with standard antibiotic therapy to manage coli-form infections of the bladder.
Inflammation management​ – Lysozyme can neutralize some acidic compounds that are released by inflammatory processes.
