However sixteen years ago, no one, not even its inventor, Dr. Jan Raa, a highly respected marine microbiologist, imagined that his amazing fish medicine would eventually help so many sick humans.
At that time, Dr. Raa
wasn't thinking of sick humans he
was thinking of sick salmon.In Norway, farmed salmon is an enormous industry, second only to oil, pumping billions into the economy.However, one of the problems with farmed salmon is they are extremely vulnerable to deadly infections, especially when they are young.
Prior to Dr. Raa's
breakthrough discovery, if farmed salmon became infected they were treated with antibiotics.But antibiotics only achieved limited success because infecting microbes can quickly develop resistant strains.Dr. Raa
discovered an amazing natural substance that could dramatically increase resistance to infections without any of the negative consequences of using antibiotics.It's called beta (1,3/1,6) glucan, a powerful immune enhancing molecule extracted from the cell wall of baker's yeast.
So effective was his
discovery for keeping farmed salmon healthy that Dr. Raa
formed a company (Biotec AS) to produce large quantities of beta glucan to be used as a natural immune enhancing feed ingredient.What wasn't known at that time was just how extraordinary his
discovery actually would be for human health!
suffered from recurrent joint pain, sometimes so severe that he
was hospitalized.Drugs were prescribed; explanations were given ... During the course of his
own research about his
learned that some scientists believed arthritis could start from subclinical (undetected) infections in the intestines, stomach, gums or mucus membranes.Dr. Raa
reasoned that if his
horrible joint pain actually came from an undetected infection, then he
might already have the cure!After all, it was now an established fact that his
discovery could significantly prevent infections. (At least in salmon!) Maybe, just maybe, beta glucan could do the same for humans, namely himself!He
knew beta glucan was totally safe and non-toxic, so he
decided to try it.He
simply calculated the correct dosage by his
body weight, and took a daily dose by mixing the powder in orange juice.The results were stunning!His
joint pain disappeared ... Marit's healing experience further confirmed to him that his
discovery could have profound and widespread health benefits for humans.He
didn't have to wait long before he
had more proof.
Peter M, a resident of Tromsø, Norway, had suffered most of his
adult life with a non-specific gut infection.He
had been given numerous drugs, had several exploratory operations, and by the time Peter
heard about beta glucan he
was so weak he
could hardly get out of bed. Facing yet another exploratory surgery, which he
was sure would end his
Luckily three weeks before Peter's next scheduled operation, his
wife was told by a friend about the miraculous healing powers attributed to Dr. Raa's
fish medicine.Tromsø is a small town.Apparently the word was out.Peter
called Dr. Raa
, who immediately came to see him.He
a small plastic bag of beta glucan powder and instructed him to take one teaspoon a day which he
could mix in orange juice as Dr. Raa
had done.The powder itself did not taste bad.In just one week Peter's energy was soaring.He
no longer vomited after his
meals and his
diarrhea had subsided.Within two weeks his
chronic stomach problems, a condition Peter
had suffered from for more than 20 years, had vanished!Like Marit, Peter
felt healthier than he
ever felt before!Three weeks later Dr. Raa
heard from Peter
by post card sent from India.Peter
was on vacation!Dr. Raa
already knew from his
own experience that subclinical infections are almost impossible to cure with drugs and can be at the root of many serious health problems.He
was convinced that beta glucan worked for Peter
because it was able to fully activate his
immune system, the most powerful healer in the world!
Word spread.More stories of life long ailments gone!Conditions as seemingly unrelated as allergies, shingles and gum disease either improved or simply vanished.Colds and flu appeared to be a thing of the past.More and more friends and associates of Dr. Raa
were taking the fish medicine that "worked miracles on humans!"Soon there was such a demand for the product that Dr. Raa's company
, Biotec AS, began to encapsulate beta glucan and offer it to the general public.
From its inception, Dr. Raa's
discovery has changed the lives of people who have lost all hope that they would ever be healthy again.Dr. Raa's
miraculous fish medicine does indeed work miracles, and the miracles continue today in many countries including the USA.
Beth is now nearly symptom free, off all of her medications including antidepressants, and, like so many people who have been saved by Dr. Raa's
discovery, totally grateful.
original fish medicine has evolved into several renowned products.The human product is called IMMUTOL®.
...In 1998, Dr. Jan Raa, world-renowned immunologist and founder of Biotec Pharmacon ASA, reported the following: "Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan [NBG] is truly a miracle of nature.
...Noted Norwegian scientist, Dr. Jan Raa puts it this way:
