Latest Studies on Biobran
Lake Bled in Slovenia is a beautiful venue for a conference with its picturesque lake and castles. The DHD workshop was held 5thJune and we were there to meet with the manufacturers of BioBran and to hear the new studies being presented. The one that excited me the most was on the latest research on Biobran’s effect on dendritic cell maturation and was presented by Dr Dana Cholujova Ph.D.
Dendritic cells are antigen presenting cells that play a pivotal role in our immune response. When the cells have matured they grow branch-like projections called dendrites, from which they receive their name. Once activated and loaded with antigens, they migrate to the lymphoid tissue and interact with T cells and B cells, to initiate and shape an immune response towards any invading antigens.
However, if a non-activated immature dendritic cell (IDC) presents antigens to T cells without the co-stimulation of key molecules, the antigens are tolerated rather than acted upon. Activation and maturation of the DC should be initiated whenever they encounter pathogens, lymphocytes, cytokines and by-products of damaged tissues.
Dendritic cells were found to infiltrate many types of human tumours but the majority of them, were immature; unable to mount an attack on a neoplasm.
Dana Cholujova and her colleagues from the Laboratory of Tumour Immunology at the Cancer Research Institute in Bratislava, used biobran and a cytokine mix to stimulate maturation of the dendritic cells in vitro. They demonstrated that biobran had a profound effect on maturation and that the cells treated solely with the cytokine mix did not mature as effectively as dendritic cells treated with both biobran and the cytokine mix.
Klamath Blue Green Algae and Klamin Extract
There has recently been renewed interest in all things algae-related, after the publication of studies on menopause and mood on Klamin-the patented concentrated extract of Klamath Blue Green Algae.
Our in-house nutritionist, Kirsten Brooks, recently gave a talk about it at the hale Clinic, entitiled ‘The Three Billion Year Old Solution to Stress and Anxiety’.

Stay safe flying and keep your blood moving with NKCP
For anyone flying abroad at this time of year, you might be interested to learn about NKCP NattoTabs – a natural food extract, clinically shown to help improve blood flow. Natto Tabs come in a handy travel pack of 10 (as well as a 60 pack) and can be taken as a circulatory support whilst flying to help reduce the risk of travel-related DVT.
NattoTabs contain an enzyme extracted from a Japanese delicacy called natto — fermented soybeans renowned for over 2000 years in Asia for their health-giving properties, especially their support of the cardiovascular system. The product functions in a supportive manner controlling our body’s own blood viscosity without compromising healthy blood clotting, making it a very safe supplement to take with no known side-effects. This is especially important given the recent bad press on aspirin.
NKCP NattoTabs is especially useful to take on plane journeys, where the combination of physical inactivity and the low pressure found in an airplane cabin significantly increases the risk of DVT (three to five times for flights over 4 hours.) Taking preventative steps is especially important, if you fall into a high risk group – have a cardiovascular condition, are over-weight, aged over 40 or especially tall or short (as short legs in a seat cannot touch the ground so easily which puts pressure on the back of the thigh causing blood-flow restrictions.) Additionally, if you are taking the contraceptive pill or are on HRT, you are at a greater risk of succumbing to a travel-related DVT.
The preventative dosage is one tablet a day to be taken after a main meal. During periods of inactivity, such as whilst flying, 2 tablets every 6 hours is recommended.
Be one of the first to discover Zeolite skin treatment range
The healing and detoxification properties of Zeolite have been recognised in Asian medicine for over 1,000 years. Zeolite is a unique powerful volcanic mineral compound, which has the ability to chelate or remove impurities from the face and body. Here it is combined with an array of natural nutrient-rich ingredients, creating a range of treatment creams that cleanse and regenerate the skin, whilst reducing oxidative damage. The range reduces the signs of ageing, improves pH balance and protects the skin from environmental influences. Zeolites were used to clear up environmental pollution at Chenobyl, but are now the latest buzz in detoxification. Here zeolite comes to you in a unique skin treatment range.
The many healing properties of Zeolite:
- It stimulates metabolism in the skin tissues;
- It restores natural production of collagen;
- It stimulates cell renewal;
- It softens wrinkles;
- It helps to regulate oxygen flow;
- It mops up toxins such as heavy metals;
- Its antioxidants combat free radicals that lead to premature ageing, increasing wellbeing and immunity.
Zeolite Solutions Skin Treatment ranges also comprises herbs, essential oils and other nutrients which leave the skin radiant, soft, and smooth, without an oily residue. These include:
