HOW DOES Laminine™ WORK & WHAT'S IN IT?
What does Opt9 Contain?
OPT9 contains a natural combination of nutrients, including
amino acids, glycopeptides, and oligopeptides that come from
fertilized eggs, isolated plant proteins, and marine elements
that work together to form a super food for the mind and body.
The Health Benefits of Laminine™
Laminine™ has a variety of potential health benefits,
including, strength, stamina, increased libido, and sense of
These various effects may all be related to the
significant reduction of the stress hormone cortisol (by about
50 percent) after the ingestion of Laminine™.
What exactly is PESE, and how much is known about its
Proto Embryonic Stage Extract is the name we have given the
ingredient in Laminine™ that is derived from the partially
(9 days) fertilized hen eggs. PESE contains the most
potent and balanced combination of not only amino acids, but
also other known
(and unknown) factors such as Fibroblast Growth
Factor. We believe amino acids derived from such fluids combined
with the growth factors are able to enhance brain function because they are “precisely”
engineered to support the most complex stage of birth of a
living creature, the beginning. This beginning is the most
critical stage in our development just like the take off is the
most complex function in flying an airplane, or the foundation
in construction is the most essential function in the life of a
The health benefits of the hen egg have been known for
centuries. Recently, further investigation of the mechanism of
the development of an embryo in an egg during incubation
revealed the scientific equivalent of the “miracle of life”.
The potency of the nutrients available to the embryo at the
latter stage of development 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 was obtained.
During this stage oligopeptides with small
molecular weights were identified. These short chains of amino
acids are able to cross the digestive barrier without breaking
down or changing the ratios and proportions. Peptides are far
more potent than other neurotransmitters, requiring only small
amounts to produce a profound effect.
Additionally, the uptake of the Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF)
(present in PESE) by the embryo sharply increases and the FGF
present have been isolated through a patented process precisely
at the right stage of incubation, extracted and freeze dried to
bring the “miracle of life” benefits to humans.
Extracting PESE before the peptides and FGF are “used up” to
build organs and bones, allows us to provide this building,
repairing, maintenance mechanism of perfectly balanced amino
acids, peptides and growth factors to humans. While virtually
unknown in the
until very recently, PESE has been marketed successfully as a
nutritional supplement in
for many years.
How is FGF helpful to humans?
The precise blend of oligopeptides may be seen as building
blocks, without a bridge, or a director.
role of such a director is fulfilled by a growth factor known as
the Fibroblast Growth Factor, or FGF.
FGF is prolific in PESE, as well as in the human placenta.
A detailed day-by-day study was performed in 1988.
only in the seventies, and also a peptide, this FGF is critical
in the development of embryos, including humans.
However, it is
not found to be circulating in the human adult bodies. FGF is
responsible for building the linings in the blood vessels,
creating the infrastructure for the nutrients to flow to
critical areas of the brain and organs. Research credits FGF
with the potential to directly affect many neuro disorders
because of clear results of the ability of FGF to affect the
growth of neurites. Neurites are signal senders (Axons) and
signal receivers (dendrites) attached to the brain neurons.
Research has also shown clearly that new cell cultures show a
dramatic increase in peptide and amino acid uptake in the
presence of FGF. This result gives credence to the hypothesis
that embryonic growth is
influenced by a very precise mechanism, which combines unique
combinations of amino acids, peptides and FGF.
Since FGF is not circulating in adults, multiple research
projects on the effects of FGF serums to cure neuro disorders
have been carried out. Fundamental to the research is the fact
discovered by Altman, J.
in 1962 that neural STEM cells are formed by the body in
response to abnormalities, and are resident in certain zones of
the brain. The brain is therefore ready to repair the damage,
and these cells have
shown to differentiate into a wide range of neurons. Neurons
derived from such neural stem cells are capable of migrating to
various regions of the Central Nervous System.
Use of vegetable proteins
Vegetable protein has an essential amino acid profile, which is
very close to that of the ideal protein for human nutrition (FAO/WHO
1985 and 2002). For Laminine™, a patented process further
protein’s to eliminate the compounds, which neutralize the
benefits of the essential amino acids.
result is an ingredient, which is high in Glutamic acid,
(further enhancing the cognitive function of
the brain), branched chain amino acids (to counter insomnia),
Lysine (to control release of serotonin, controlling moods) and
Arginine (promoting Nitric Oxide and growth hormone formation).
isolated proteins’s therefore adds a synergistically potent
composition to enhance brain activity.
Use of Marine Proteins
The high levels of Glycine in the specially extracted marine
protein used in Laminine™, combined with a significant amount of hydroxyproline to stabilize the glycine, makes it a primary
candidate for a terrific
brain food. By itself, Glycine is a neurotransmitter, primarily
utilized by the brain to control glutamate levels. As a
combination within OPT9, it becomes a powerful force to enhance
memory function in
AMINO ACIDS AND THEIR ROLES
Amino acids are critical to life, and have many functions in
metabolism. One particularly important function is as the
building blocks of proteins, which are linear (straight) chains
of amino acids. Laminine™’s unique blend of ingredients
combines to produce a complete chain of 20 amino acids. The
following is a list of those amino acids and their potential
benefits. Amino acids are organic compounds that combine to form
proteins. When proteins are digested, amino acids are left. The
human body requires a number of amino acids to grow and
breakdown food and is a very important part of nutrition. A
complete balance of amino are contained in Laminine™ and include:
· Aspartic Acid
· Glutamic Acid
· Arginine, Hydroxyproline
and glutamine are precursors of nucleotides. Nucleotides are
molecules that, when joined together, make up the structural
units of RNA and DNA.
These building blocks of proteins perform various vital roles in
the body and help us to remain healthy in many ways.
· Antioxidants helping with combating free radicals and
environmental toxins including ultraviolet light, radiation,
and air pollution.
· Benefits in treating some respiratory conditions, such as
bronchitis and COPD. Angina, Chronic bronchitis and Chronic
Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Influenza, Acute
Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), HIV/AIDS.

ROLE OF PEPTIDES
Small amino acid chain peptides (such as those contained in
Laminine™), commonly known as oligopeptides, are very easily
transported through the intestinal, membrane. They are sometimes
used as transport mechanisms for drugs.
Peptides are short polymers formed from the linking, in a
defined order, of α-amino acids. Proteins are multi peptide
Proteins must be broken down to smaller and smaller peptides,
and eventually an amino acid, to perform its functions.
intake of peptides and amino acids, which can reach their
therefore, can be extremely beneficial.
Peptides are the most abundant compounds in the hypothalamus of
the brain, and perform vital functions of communicating sensory
impulses to the endocrine system (hormone producing glands).
Understanding the mechanisms of the effect of peptides, and the
types of peptides, is a complex field and is being studied
extensively. Unfortunately, these studies are done in isolation
and disregard the whole picture of the many complex mechanisms
which exist in our body. Further, these studies are usually
focused on a particular amino acid, peptide or other
neurotransmitters. While the results identify the final activity
with the amino acid/peptide, the mechanism of transport of such
critical amino acid/peptides to the final destination is a
subject of major arguments. These arguments cast a shadow on the
importance of nutritional supplements. Most doctors will tell
you that nutritional supplements “cannot hurt”, but stop
short of endorsing them.
The reason is the lack of evidence that
the active ingredients have been formulated in the correct form
that can be used by the body.
