Russian Choice Immune

Russian Discovery Lowers Cholesterol,
Fights Cancer, and Supports Immune System

(Excerpted from Dr. Robert Jay Rowen's SECOND OPINION, March 2005)

Chernobyl, the world's worst nuclear accident, killed 20,000 and millions of additional victims endured unspeakable suffering and lingering deaths. In the wake of the disaster, the Russian military issued a plea for the discovery of any remedy that could benefit the radiation-ravaged survivors. The State Scientific Research Institute of Highly Pure Bio-preparations in St. Petersburg was given the task to find a remedy that was effective, low cost, and safe.

The researchers had a difficult task in front of them — medications are sparse in Russia and the ones they had weren't working. They had to find out a way to rebuild the immune systems of people who weren't responding to any treatment given to them.

After the scientists analyzed more than 600 prospective products, only one met the criteria of effective, low cost and safe. To the scientists's surprise, it was not a drug, vitamin, or herb. It was a specific strain of Lactobacillus bulgaricus. More surprising, it wasn't even the whole bacteria. Instead, the scientists used a portion of the cell wall of the organism.

Medical science has known for years that fractions of bacterial cell walls have enormous effects on the immune system, both good and bad. On the positive side, cell wall fragments used in properly prepared vaccines can stimulate immunity to specific microorganisms. On the negative side, cell-wall toxins from harmful bacteria in your blood can create a condition called 'gram negative shock.' In such a case, your systolic blood pressure could drop to a life threatening 40 — just as if you lost most of your blood. And you could have a temperature of 105 F.

A healthy intestinal tract is populated by billions of beneficial microorganisms which fight off bad bacteria, viruses, and fungal infections in the gut. They also stimulate the immune system to fight a wide variety of health threatening organisms in the rest of the body. Few people, even doctors, realize that the majority of the body's immune cells are located in the intestinal tract. This makes sense, as the most common source of germs and bacteria is the food you eat.

What this means is that you have a great deal of control over the health of these bacteria. What you eat, the medicines you take (antibiotics kill all bacteria, including the good ones), and the toxins you're exposed to, all affect these bacteria. There are even wonderful products called probiotics (organisms and substances which contribute to intestinal microbial balance) that help re-colonize these good bacteria after they have been depleted by illness or antibiotics.

The most common and powerful probiotics on the market to date are the various strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria. In my opinion, the best ones contain the species acidophilus — you might be familiar with Lactobacillus acidophilus R--52 or L. acidophilus NAS. Lactobacillus bulgaricus is commonly used in some probiotic formulas, but the Russian scientists discovered an even more powerful strain following the devastating Chernobyl accident.

The researchers first tested the new preparation on radiated immune-deficient mice. After one week, these animals had six times the antibody production as the control mice and the overall survival rate of these mice jumped from 40 to 100 percent. Mice that received a sub-lethal dose of radiation doubled their survival at 30 days from 35 to 70 percent.

Then the researchers treated immune-depressed patients from the Chernobyl accident. Within two days, these patients reported great energy improvements. Within two weeks, their blood chemistry was almost back to normal. Within one month, patients stopped getting sick.

Next they treated patients with cancer. In 879 of these patients, chemotherapy and radiation had destroyed enough of their white blood cells that therapy had to be discontinued. Once the new probiotic preparation was administered, their levels of white blood cells increased enough that the toxic therapies could be completed.

One female, age 43,suffered from late-stage breast cancer. The tumor was about four centimeters across, and she had a smaller lesion in her armpit. In addition to chemo and radiation (but no surgery), she was given the preparation (10 mg per kilogram of body weight, twice daily) for one year. After one month, examination suggested the lesion was dying. Four years later, she had no discernable disease.

With cancer, the potential savings to society are astronomical. When toxic therapy compromises the immune system, synthetic drugs must be administered to bolster white blood cell production, at a very great expense. And if infection does occur, the results are life threatening and often bankrupting. Imagine if all this could be avoided with a non-toxic immune stimulator that costs only a few dollars.

For those patients who require surgery the news is just as great. Surgical morbidity is a major problem in hospitals. The product reduced surgical complications and increased the speed of wound healing.

To give you an idea of how far reaching this product is, take a look at the results of another Russian study. This one followed 74 bronchitis patients, aged 20 to 65, and divided them into treatment and control groups. Bronchitis in the treatment group disappeared within six to eight weeks; the preparation significantly increased the ability of their immune systems to fight the infection. The controls saw no improvement.

I've seen oxidative therapies boost immune systems to this level. But I've never seen a supplement do it. So this is truly an amazing discovery. For most oxidative therapies, you have to visit a doctor's office and pay for the visit as well as the therapy. Now you can boost you immune system with an inexpensive supplement and no doctor's visit.

Take Marilyn S. as an example of how well this product works. She complained of ' terrible yeast problems.' Diet helped, but only moderately. After three months of taking the product her vaginal discharge vanished, stomach cramps disappeared, and all other symptoms were gone.

One 60-year-old man suffered from prostate cancer and also had a severe foot fungus. Following prostate removal he also developed digestive problems. He took the product for ten days and the foot fungus cleared. In just 20 days his severe diarrhea and cramps were gone. He's taken the product for two years now and hasn't had the flu, or even a cold in that time.

The Russian researchers also found this extract has anti-allergy properties, lowers cholesterol, stimulates production of stomach acid for digestion, relieves constipation, enhances calcium metabolism and reduces osteoporosis development, and fights cold and flu-like symptoms.

The Russians have developed an absolutely miraculous probiotic extract that needs to be in everyone's supplement regimen. You don't have to be sick to enjoy the benefits of this product because it is a great preventive and general immune health booster. Russian Choice Immune, is now available under the brand name: Russian Choice Immune .

Because the final product isn't made from living bacteria it doesn't have to be refrigerated, which makes it a much easier product to ship, store and use. If you have a compromised immune system or simply want to stay as healthy as you can for the rest of your life, then this product is for you.
