Ribraxx Featured Product: (Biobran)
If Ribraxx (Biobran) only produced higher quality of life and well-being in cancer patients; especially those taking convention treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy; then it would be highly impressive.
However; this functional food; (not a supplement) offers much more than that. (1) Perhaps by way of its impact on our immune system, an immune modulating substance; the above statements can be validated.
Research informs us that Biobran MGN-3 arabinoxylan (Ribraxx) compound can stimulate a compromised immune system more powerfully and safely than any other agent, natural or synthetic.
Extensive research in vitro and in vivo has been performed around the world and in Japan, the home of this compound.
Mamdooh Ghoneum, Professor of Immunology at the Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science, has stated that Biobran is “the most powerful immunomodulator he has ever tested”.
Although nobody yet knows the exact mechanism, it appears to be able to do this by increasing the body’s production of natural cytokines — substances such as interferons, interleukins and tumour necrosis factors, which not only help destroy rogue cells and viruses directly, but appear to directly impact the function of the immune system.
Why is increasing NK Cell activity so important?
Ribraxx ( Biobran) increases the activity of lymphocytes, B cells, T cells and especially NK (natural killer) cells.
B cells focus on producing antibodies whilst the T & NK cells wander through the body directly destroying virally or bacterially infected cells, and cells that have turned cancerous.
In its lifetime, a single NK cell can kill as many as 27 cancer cells, sticking to them and then injecting lethal chemical granules that can destroy the abnormal cell in less than 5 minutes.
A research article(2) quotes results of laboratory tests that revealed the anti-inflammatory and immune modulatory effects of Biobran. After Biobran intake, NK cell activity increased and CRP ( inflammation marker) value showed a significant decrease when compared with the levels before intake.
In addition, significant increase in the ratio of lymphocytes in WBCs and the B-cell percentage in lymphocytes was also observed, as well as a significant decrease in the neutrophil ratio. (2)
A natural array of ingredients is also thought to be a reason for its non-toxicity and lack of unwanted side effects.
Note: Although Shitake mushroom enzymes are used in the manufacture, there is no measurable mushroom content in the end product and so most of those with mushroom intolerance have no reaction to it.
Conclusion: Ribraxx can enhance NK cell activity, improve the efficacy of chemotherapy and reduce unwanted side-effects.

In my 43 years at the cancer coalface I've seen few complementary nutritionals with such impressive patient outcomes - Grace Gawler - the Institute's therapeutic director
Grace says – “My patients (mostly stage 4) on Ribraxx are doing remarkedly well.
By increasing NK cell activity Ribraxx enhances the immune system to fight the cancer cells.
Simultaneously; I have my patients take another science based nutritional, Strath Tonic, which impacts first line immunity, helping patients recover from chemotherapy, radiation and surgery treatments.
Taken together; they provide a powerful boost to both layers of our immune system.”

Our botanical & nutritional products are to be used as adjuncts to conventional cancer medicine – not alternatives or substitutes.
While our supervised patients using these products as adjuncts consistently experience postive outcomes – the science underpinning timing & sequencing of complementary products is very complex – requiring a knowledge of pharmacogenonics & expert practitioner guidance.
