LENTIN 1000

LENTIN 1000

Plant-derived foods contain among other things fiber, also known collectively as “dietary fiber.” Dietary fibers derive mainly from plants, algae and microorganisms, and many are sugar polymers, a.k.a. polysaccharides. Now through BIOTECHNOLOGY, it was found that they have potent “immunostimulatory-modulatory effects,” so strong they are now labelled as Biological Response Modifiers (BRM). Some examples of such are beta glucans, mannans, and cell wall components of medical mushrooms like shiitake, suehirotake, and kawaraitake. Some of these are now used in the treatment of cancer as immune system stimulators, orally and intravenously.
     Lentin 1000 is a BRM derived from rice bran.

     The Japanese scientists have researched and developed a potent immune-stimulatory product from enzymatic processing of rice bran and called it Biobran MGN-3 (a.k.a. Lentin 1000). The dietary fiber components of rice bran are cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. Hemicellulose is further categorized into A (insoluble) and B which is soluble and absorbable orally. Metabolism and breakdown of hemicellulose B is accomplished through enzymatic reactions which produces its immunostimulatory effects, especially on NK-cells (natural killer cells) activities.
      Natural killer cells (NK-cells), together with T and B cells are from the Lymphoid progenator branch of the immune system. The other branch of immune system is the Myeloid progenator branch. NK cells are directly fighting cancer cells as first line defense, thus, its potentiation is desired from cancer prevention, to therapy and rehabilitation.
