THE MORNING SHOW
Beta Glucan and Immunology
A.J. Lanigan has over 20 years experience in various disciplines of immunology. He was educated at the University of South Carolina, College of Pharmacy from 1971-1975. Mr. Lanigan formed his own company in 1980 with a focus on health-related fields. In addition to developing numerous audio and videotapes on health-related issues, he authored the Internet book, “Health in a Pill and Other Medical Myths”. In 1990 he designed and placed in hospitals and medical practices numerous low cost ozone generators suitable for medical use and is considered an expert in ozone therapy and commercial applications of ozone. His research on the effect that medical ozone had on the immune system, through increased cytokine production, led him to other experts in the field of immunology. One intensively researched product caught his attention, Beta-1, 3-D Glucan.
The research on Beta-1, 3-D Glucan, a carbohydrate molecule that enhanced the functioning of the macrophage white blood cell, was extensive and the results were impressive. However, the purified Beta glucan used in the laboratories was prohibitively expensive and economically unfeasible for the average person. In the late 90s ,he developed a manufacturing process for a highly purified Beta glucan that was affordable for the average person.
-Your immune system makes up about 10% of all your cells
-The mouth carries more than 700 types of bacteria
-The soldiers of the immune system
-The importance of strengthening the immune system
-Bringing beta glucan to the market at an affordable price; the body doesn’t make beta glucan; what is beta glucan anyway?
-What’s happens to our immune system as we age?
