discovered only in 1996 is an unusual protein that does not degrade in the digestive tract. In supplementation, lunasin is not known completely due to the huge costs of obtaining it so far. The only products that have hitherto existed on the market (only in the USA) contain traces of lunasine, up to 600 nanograms, and yet they are very popular, as hundreds of publications already indicate that lunasine is a great hope for humanity at the breakthrough in many fields of science . It is the first and only known epigenetic food, that is, it can influence the increase of gene activity and their qualitative progression. The portion of pure lunazine in 1 LunaCol capsule is 833 times greater than that which consumers receive in products branded by American explorers of this protein. It is 0.5 mg. Obtaining it in such an effective way that LunaCol could contain as much lunasine is an outstanding achievement of Polish biotechnological thought in recent years.
The name lunasin does not come from the moon. Her discoverer, dr. Alfredo Galvez - of Filipino origin, called this wonderful lunasin protein - from the word "lunas", which in his native Tagalog language means "to live".
Aleksander Fleming, who in 1922 discovered a natural, phylogenetically very early, primary defensive mechanism, proper to all living organisms - it was the lysozyme, not the penicillin from which it became famous, that he considered his work to be the most important. In industrial forms it serves as an excellent food bioconservative, an alternative to chemical preservatives, especially in cheese ripening rooms and wine cellars. The strength of aseptic action of this natural enzyme shows that 1 ml of muramidase is able to defend a thousand-liter vat of wine against bacterial diseases!
Lysozyme is part of our innate immune system and one of the underlying resistance substances. Its very high concentration, for example, contains breast milk, which protects the newborn child from all germs, before it produces its immune system. Lysozyme is also the most important component of the first food of mammals, the maternal gift of immunity - colostrum.
In LunaCol, a lysozyme dimer, a substance that has made a revolution in veterinary medicine, is used where it does not result in antibiotics. In the treatment of people in the European Union, it is used to a very limited extent, although there are more antibiotic resistant bacteria, and the case of drug resistance to lysozyme dimer is unknown - one of the most valuable substances that can be used in the composition of a dietary supplement. It is safe for our organism to settle the digestive system. You have to be supplemented with it for a long time and patiently, because it works very slowly, but at the same time it is so strong that in the purified state it shows antibacterial activity still at a dilution of 1: 7!
Supplementation with lysozyme is also justified by the fact that it is not so easy to get it from the foods we eat. It has been isolated from milk for a long time in the UHT process. In noticeable amounts, it is found only in goat cheese and in egg whites, but it should be eaten raw, because lysozyme is killed at a maximum temperature of 70 ⁰C. In LunaCol he was also because its enzymatic structure causes it to work synergistically with lunasin.
Supplements with lysozyme are very few on the market, because it is a road component. It is difficult to acquire lysozyme in practice other than industrially obtained E 1105. At LunaCol, it was the lysozyme of the highest possible quality, produced in the same place and regime as lunasin.
More specifically, β-glucans 1,3-1,6D work symbiotically with lysozyme, and also stimulate its production in the body. In the Atlantic salmon treated with beta glucans, the production of lysozyme increased by 500-600%. Each and every salmon tested. In humans, it does not work so strongly, so the more the supplementation with lysozyme is very desirable. Our body, when it naturally fights with the disease - uses the following capital mechanism: "having found" the presence of microbes raises its own β-glucans, whose particularly forms with a mass of 1.3 - 1.6D increase the activity of macrophages, which in turn causes immediate explosion of the body lysozyme . The body is focused on fighting.
Beta glucans already have a very rich scientific literature, describing experiments, the results of which go far beyond their nutritional properties, and even the functions of lowering cholesterol, which were first tested. Therefore, they have been promoted to the rank of one of the most important supplements in recent years. In LunaCol a large portion of β-glucans, obtained from the walls of yeast cells Saccharomyces cerevisiae, was found. The most desirable on the market today.
