In 1929, John R. Davidson discovered an extract from fertilized avian eggs. He used this extract to restore the health of his patients. Five decades later, Norway’s foremost egg expert researcher, Dr. Bjoedne Eskeland took Dr. Davidson’s original research a step further. Together with Lifepharm, a special ingredient was created.
Laminine contains Fertilized Avian Egg Extract (FAEE) whose active ingredient is the Fibroblast Growth Factor or FGF. This protein molecule is extracted from fertilized eggs on the ninth day of incubation, the peak of its potency. FGF is a family of cell-signaling proteins involved in tissue organ development and acts as systemic circulating molecules of extracellular origin that activate cell surface receptors.
FGFs are well-studied molecules that affect the cellular matrix on the DNA level. It is ubiquitous in a youthful body but dissipates as we grow older. Interestingly, FGF is released locally upon injury or tissue remodeling. There are 23 FGFs and Laminine has FGF-2, which is critical in stem cell treatments. (NCBI)
Significance in humans
FGF is necessary for the full development of an embryo. When ingested by humans, FGF works as a signaling protein molecule that tells the body to maintain and repair damaged or aging cells, by directing stem cells in the body. These peptides appropriate itself based on what the signaling protein (FGF) is directing it to do.
Laminine contains FGF-2 and LifePharm uses a proprietary “evaporative cooling method” that preserves this unique peptide. Combined with two other ingredients, Laminine forms the perfect supplement that helps the body attain homeostasis.
The health benefits of the hen egg have been known for centuries. Investigation of the mechanism of the development of an egg after fertilization revealed certain health benefits. In earlier studies, whilst monitoring weight gain of the egg during their development, scientists (1) found very little gain in the first 9-10 days (7.5%), and then a sharp increase (1190% by day 23), suggesting rapid development of a body. The potency of the nutrients available to the fertilized avian egg at this stage has always been assumed to be high, but it was only recently that the chemical structure of the original egg solids for these critical stages, termed blastodermal to protoembryoinic stages was obtained. During the blastodermal to protoembryonic stages of embryogenesis, oligopeptides with molecular weights from 0.5 to 1.0 kD were identified. Oligopeptides are compounds, which have 2 to 20 amino acids joined by a peptide bond. These short chains of amino acids are able to cross the digestive barrier without breaking down or changing the ratios and proportions (2). Peptides are far more potent than other neurotransmitters, requiring only small amounts to produce a profound effect. (SOURCE: PDR.net)
About “Fertilized Avian Egg Extract” (FAEE)
FAEE begins with the father of Young Tissue Extract (YTE), Dr. Bjodne Eskeland. A Norwegian egg research scientist who dedicated his life to harnessing the peptide. Laminine boasts of having the finest and most potent YTE. Combined with fish and plant protein that makes up the Laminine OPT9 ingredient.
