Arabinoxylan derivative extracted from rice bran
Rice bran arabinoxylan is a type of polysaccharide (pentose), which under normal circumstances does not exist inside the human body. By taking in this substance, it is possible to stimulate and strengthen cells within the body. There have been numerous reports of alleviated symptoms relating to allergy, internal organs, blood sugar, and tonsil, following the use of this substance. It has also been confirmed that arabinoxylan derivative strongly acts on NK-cells and violently attacks cancer cells.
The ability of rice bran arabinoxylan derivative to stimulate immunocytes was first announced in April of 1996 by Dr. Ghoneum (Professor at UCLA and Drew Medical College), in the United States. After administering rice bran arabinoxylan alongside with standard cancer treatment to patients of 27 different types of cancer, it was observed within two weeks that the NK-cell activity in the patients had increased in a striking manner. Additionally, a scientific research team led by the same professor made a noteworthy announcement in July, reporting that rice bran arabinoxylan was also effective against the HIV virus. Since then, numerous scientific findings have been announced even outside the realm of cancer and HIV.
There are currently 11 universities in Japan (including Kyoto University, Kyushu University, and Chiba University), along with UCLA in the Unites States, and Cambridge University in the United Kingdom that are researching this topic, and are expected to continue presenting results.
It is well known amongst scientists that propolis existed for over for million years as a sort of natural antibiotic. Four million years ago…that is the estimated time period when bees started using propolis. Although bees do not naturally have any protection against bacteria and viruses, they have been able to survive until today, without ever experiencing infections in their small hives. It is confirmed that the existence of propolis is greatly involved in this phenomenon. Once highly valued in ancient Egypt as a medicine, propolis has an efficient composition of vitamins, minerals, and flavonoids. Propolis is reported in various clinical testing to not only act as an antibiotic, but also to reinforce cellular membranes and the immune system, to detoxify hazardous substances, to inhibit oxidation, stimulate vital energy, and as an anti-inflammatory agent. In 1972, scientists and doctors from around Europe held the First International Symposium on Propolis. Since then the International Federation of Beekeepers’ Associations (APIMONDIA - an international organization with approximately five million members) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have established a joint research project. Today, side effect-free treatment using propolis is among the approved projects of the WHO health program.
Vitamins are nutrients that facilitate catalized reactions in living organisms. Although the amount is miniscule, it is the works of vitamins that allow the three main nutrients (protein, lipids, and glucose) to function, allowing bone marrows to form, which leads to the production of flesh and blood. Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) was discovered in the 14th century as an antivitamin to scorbutus, a disease that kills the infected through the swelling of the gum or rupturing of capillaries. Its existence is critical for the production and sustainment of collagen, and is publicized to have antiviral and antioxidant effects. The early symptoms of vitamin C deficiency, a condition that is unique to humans, monkeys, and guinea pigs, includes disconcertedness, anxiety, fatigue, skin pallor, increase of freckles, pigmentary deposit, and punctuate bleeding. It is also possible for bleeding to occur subcutaneously, from mucous membranes, joints, and organs, which can lead to a state of anemic condition. In addition, immunity against infections decreases, thereby increasing the chances of contracting the common cold amongst other infectious diseases.
Nicotine amide, also known as niacin, enters the body and acts as an oxidation-reduction enzyme. It is also known that nicotine acid amide has an influence on nervous and psychological conditions. Various symptoms are known to show during a state of deficiency, such as darkening of the skin, deposit of skin pigment, glossitis, oral inflammation, indigestion, nausea, insomnia, headache, depression, schizophrenia, movement of peripheral nerves, and perception disorders.
Pantothenic acid, a constituent of the fatty acid synthase complex and coenzyme A, is an important vitamin that contributes to the metabolism of protein, fat, and sugar. It is also known among specialists that pantothenic acid is the anti-dermatitis agent in chickens. This element is easy to intake since the majority is absorbed in the intestines, and then delivered to the liver and kidney. A deficiency may occur at times of illness, which may cause obesity, abnormality of muscular movement, insomnia, headache, convulsion of the extremities, and paresis.
Vitamin B1 is an essential element in normal growth, and is known to prevent beriberi. It helps the metabolism of carbohydrates, and delivers oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. It also alleviates muscular fatigue, and maintains the normal functioning of the nervous system. Its deficiency can cause numbness and swelling of the extremities, fatigue, shortness of breath, palpitation, ataxia, impaired vision, lalopathy, heart disturbance, myasthenia, and ocular paralysis.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is a nutrient that acts on the skin and the nervous system, and maintains normal histogenesis. It also plays an important role in the reproductive functions, and influences aphrodisia and menstruation cycles. Its deficiency may cause eyestrain, gritty sensation in the eyes, hyperemia, conjunctivitis, cornificaiton of the skin, seborrheic dermatitis of the earlobes, eyelids, nose wings, and vagina, stomatitis, sore lips, and irritation following administration of antibiotics.
Vitamin B6 acts as a coenzyme to various enzymes, and is especially essential to proteins since it acts their transfer enzyme. It has anti-allergy effects, and also is essential to sustaining brain function. Although its deficiency syndromes are not yet well known, pellagra-like dermatitis, cheilitis, stomatitis, increase in blood urea, convultions, eczema, delay in intellectual development, and skeletal abnormalities are among the observed symptoms.
Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) still has numerous mysteries associated with it. It was produced as an agent to prevent anemia (anemia pernicious), and is primarily stored in the liver. It acts on the nervous system, and largely so on the central and peripheral nervous systems. Deficiency symptoms include anemia pernicious, GI dysfunction, perception disorder, headaches, pain in the joints and muscles, and central nervous system disorder.
