BioBran MGN-3 is one of the most effective food supplements available for helping the body maintain a strong and healthy immune system.
Developed in Japan by Daiwa pharmacutical in 1992, under the generic or research name MGN-3 (from the initials of its three developers), BioBran is manufactured in Japan using a patented process to break down (pre-digest) rice bran using enzymes from Shitake mushrooms. The resulting compound contains a unique blend of glyconutrients such as arabinoxylan, as well as other short chain polysaccharides and hemicellulose compounds. This unique molecular fingerprint makes it significantly more effective than any other immune system supplement on the market today, giving the body its best opportunity to optimize its own natural healing mechanisms. According to M. Ghoneum, a professor of immunology at Drew University in the United States and a researcher with over 30 years experience, BioBran MGN-3 is the most promising immune complex he has examined.
How does BioBran MGN-3 help us maintain a strong immune system? Our immune system is comprised of an army of white blood cells - NK cells, T and B cells, which travel around inside us destroying the millions of intruding microbes that penetrate our bodies every day, as well as the thousands of newly infected or abnormal body cells that develop. BioBran MGN-3 gives our white blood cells the glyco-nutritional support to carry out their vital role energetically and efficiently, helping to optimize immune function.
Another advantage of BioBran MGN-3 is that it retains its effectiveness in the body even after a prolonged period of use - in other words, there is none of the usual drop-off effect over time that is common with many other nutritional supplements. BioBran is also highly absorbable, completely non-toxic, GMO-free and contains no actual mushroom in the finished product, which means it can be safely taken by those with mushroom intolerances. (The only situation when one should avoid using this product is obviously in conjunction with immunosuppressants.)
Directions for Use:
For normal health maintenance, the recommended intake is 500mg per day with meals. Those who need optimum immune system support, take 3 grams per day for 8 weeks (1g with each meal), and then 1 gram per day thereafter.
BioBran MGN-3 is available in 50 x 250mg tablet blister pack or alternatively as 30 x 1000mg (1g) powder sachets. Gram for gram, there is no difference in effectiveness between the powder or tablets. The difference of packaging lies solely in the convenience of tablets for people following lower dose regiemes and sachets for people taking larger quantities. The powder is very palatable and can be dissolved in a small amount of water. Tablets should be taken with meals, whereas sachets should ideally be taken 20 minutes after a meal.
