I just came across this product on Prohealth. I have no financial interest in Prohealth....just wondering if anyone has tried it or heard of it, and whether it was helpful. Here's what it says about it on their website: Introducing Ave, the dietary supplement containing Avemar, a uniquely beneficial natural compound derived from wheat germ fermented by baker's yeast through a patented process. Avemar's development was initiated by Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, who received the Nobel Prize for discovery of vitamin C. He theorized that such a compound would help regulate the processes of cellular metabolism, and support mechanisms of immune system regulation. Subsequently the dramatic results of more than 20 peer review-published studies - including in vitro, in vivo, and human clinical trials - have proved his theories to be correct. Once daily use is shown to support healthy immune system modulation and the regulation of cell metabolism, supporting the processes of cell differentiation and repair*. * Supports cell metabolic regulation* * Promotes immune system modulation* * Maintains healthy cellular & humoral (Th1/Th2) immune balance* * Promotes optimal NK cell targeting ability and the coordinated response of macrophages, B-cells and T-cells* How does Ave work? 1. Ave supports cells metabolic regulation 2. Ave promotes immune system regulation * Enhance the ability of T-cells to respond to antigen presentation, and B-cells to respond to activation and produce appropriate antibodies * Normalize balance of cellular and humoral (Th1/Th2) immune function * Enhance Macrophage functioning 3. Ave enhances NK Cell targeting Avemar helps the immune system identify invaders for attack. Immune system enemy invaders try to hide from the immune system's Natural Killer (NK) cells by displaying a surface molecule called MHC-1. MHC-1 tells NK cells, "don't attack me, I'm one of the good guys"... but, research shows Avemar suppresses the invading cell's "mask" (MHC-1) resulting in increased NK cell targeting and immune system clearing. Also, from a message board: Avemar is recommended for patients suffering from malignant tumors as a supplement to clinical oncology treatment (surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, ... etc). Avemar supports other cancer treatments. Avemar is used to treat malignant tumors, immune system disorders and autoimmune diseases. Avemar may assist in the treatment of many cancers including breast, lung, prostate, colon, cervical cancer, melanoma, leukaemia. Avemar aids, assists or helps in the maintenance or improvement of general well-being. May assist in improving the immune function. Helps boost the immune system. Acts as an antioxidant, has antioxidative effect. Free radical quencher. The recommended serving is 1 sachet (17g) daily prepared as instructed, if possible, approximately 1 hour before a meal. It's very expensive...$160.
