Jurasunas, Serge. “NK Cell-Based Immunotherapy in the Treatment of Cancer Using a New Arabinoxylan Rice Bran Compound.” Townsend Letter, no. 433-434, 2019, pp. 33–41., www.townsendletter.com/article/433-4-cancer-natural-killer-cells-rice-bran-arabinoxylan-compound-chemotherapy-rbac/.        

Article Summary:

Natural Killer (NK) cells are a major component of our immune system. They are among the first to respond to diseases by directly attacking affected cells. NK cells inject enzymes called proteases into affected cells thereby damaging DNA integrity and causing cell death. NK cells also secrete inflammatory mediators called cytokines and interferons that cause destruction of affected cells by damaging their blood supply. NK cell activity is affected by a person’s health. Chronic illness as well as treatment with radiation and chemotherapy decrease NK cell count and function.

Rice bran arabinoxylan compound (RBAC) is produced from a dietary rice bran fiber called hemicellulose B. A specialized extraction process involving shitake mushroom culture breaks down this fiber into smaller molecules leading to a compound that can be easily absorbed in the small intestines. RBAC is then able to enter the blood circulation and produce immunomodulating effects. Scientific studies have shown that taking RBAC as a food supplement strengthens the immune system by improving the function of T and B lymphocytes and macrophages and most importantly, increasing NK cell activity. Research has also shown that RBAC significantly increases the ability of NK cells to bind to target cells or cells affected by disease. Binding allows NK cells to secrete granules or special enzymes causing rapid death of these target cells. These special enzymes are also increased among those taking RBAC. Oral supplementation with RBAC has also been reported to improve the quality of life among patients undergoing chemotherapy as indicated by having better appetite and less nausea, diarrhea, fatigue and pain. Studies have also shown that RBAC exhibited continuous efficacy with no toxicity even among those who have taken it as an oral supplement for several years.

The health benefits of RBAC are supported by its profound ability to enhance the immune system. Its role in immunomodulation is especially important because the immune response is weakened in those with chronic illness.

RBAC is available in the US as BRM4.

Plasmanex1 - A Functional Food for Metabolic Disorders

October 19, 2020

The results from Dr. Pescatore’s study showed that Plasmanex1 has the likelihood to improve lipid metabolism as seen in the maintenance of healthy total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Glycated hemoglobin or HbA1c is a marker of one’s blood glucose level within the last three months. It is a good indicator of the risk for diabetes and its complications. The observed significant decrease in HbA1c indicates that Plasmanex1 has the potential to improve blood sugar levels which could especially benefit those with diabetes blood sugar issues.

“How the Iris of the Eye Can Reveal Breast CA and Other Illness Risks" with Professor Serge Jurasunas, N.D., M.D.

September 29, 2020

Dr. Jurasunas focuses his research and practice not only on detecting disease but also preventing it by enhancing the immune system. Natural killer (NK) cells are the body’s first defense against cancer and other diseases. These cells attach to the abnormal cell and produce a toxin that kills it within minutes. In the elderly and in patients with chronic illness, the NK cells perform with only 10-40% of their full capacity. BRM4 is a rice bran arabinoxylan compound made out of hemicelluloses modified with shiitake mushroom enzyme. This compound is easily absorbed by the body and is able to increase NK cell activity after only 2-3 days of intake. In patients with chronic illness, NK cell activity has been reported to increase even up to 600%. BRM4 is thus able to strengthen the immune system which is essential in overall health.
