If humanity has even discovered a substance perfectly defined by those two sentences, it’s lunasin, the first scientifically described epigenetic food. This stems from, among others, its perfect absorbability. Being built into the protein complex (2S albumin), it is not digested in the stomach and passes through the intestines into the blood and to the cells. A global sensation was caused by the observation that the unique amino acid structure of this bioactive peptide allows it to influence the positive expression of our genes. It might sound like medical fiction, if not for the fact that it has been proven with countless studies. Lunasin, discovered only at the end of the 20th century, was an inaccessible substance for a long time, so much so that even laboratories conducting research on the use of its properties in medicine couldn’t get their hands on it. The first technology for isolating lunasin from soybeans was protected by patents.
Lunasin, available only in the US in the form of dietary supplements, despite the fact that they usually contain no more than the declared 600 nanograms (billionths of a gram) of pure lunasin per capsule, seems to fulfill another American dream of a capsule like Viagra or Prozac, giving the consumer the desired effects.
COLWAY gives you much more – wait for it! – one capsule of LunaCol dietary supplement contains as much as 5 milligrams of the proprietary, biologically active 10% lunasin acquired by means of a Polish method, which gives 0.5 milligrams of this protein in pure form.
The composition of LunaCol is complemented by major two substances in supplementation:
Lysozyme (muramidase) – the basic enzyme for the immunity of mammals and an innate part of our immune system. A very high concentration of lysozyme can be found in colostrum, which protects a newborn human baby before it produces its own immune system. It’s one of the most valued substances that can be contained in a dietary supplement. Among the products consumed by us, lysozyme can be found only in egg whites (provided that they have not undergone any heat treatment) and traces of it are also present in non-UHT processed milk, especially goat’s milk.
“Free as a turtle, strong as an ox,” is what immunologists say about lysozyme, indicating that just one milliliter is able to protect a 1000-liter tub of wine against all pathogenic microorganisms! It was not the well-known discovery of penicillin that Alexander Fleming considered the most important work of his life, but the first-ever isolation of muramidase.
Beta-glucans are the most important compounds of dietary fiber. Their regular consumption is deeply justified with broadly-understood prevention – in the growing awareness of the need to supplement our everyday diet with health-promoting substances, increasing attention is given to polysaccharides. There are no capsule fillers in LunaCol – this role is played by 1,3-1,6D β-glucans, which are extremely valuable in healthy nutrition.
