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!
...
Dr. Raa 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 condition he 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.
Incredible Recovery
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 life, Peter was desperate!
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 gave Peter 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.
...
Dr. Raa's 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.

Dr. Jan Raa, a world-renowned microbiologist, was looking for a way to save the Norwegian salmon industry from the constant barrage of bacterial infections they faced at farming facilities.

At the time, salmon were routinely treated with antibiotics to ward off infection. But antibiotics only achieved limited success because infecting microbes often quickly develop resistant strains. Dr. Raa discovered that beta glucan, if carefully and properly extracted from the cell walls of baker's yeast, could dramatically increase the salmon's resistance to infections without any of the negative consequences of using antibiotics because beta glucan enhanced the salmon's own natural immunities. So effective was this discovery that Dr. Raa began to produce his beta glucan, now internationally known as Norwegian Beta Glucan (NBG), to be used as a natural immune enhancing commercial feed ingredient.
Because of his sudden and profound success with NBG, Dr. Raa and his colleagues founded Biotec Pharmacon in 1991.
