UK devotee on Laminine insist it eases menopause, insomnia, and Chron’s disease, though some doctors are skeptical. (By Alice Smellie)
Well-heeled devotees insist it calms, eases menopause symptoms and cures insomnia. So why are doctors skeptical? Victoria Fisher, 45, from West London, says Laminine made her Crohn’s disease symptoms disappear and gave her a new lease of life. The capsule pill is composed of proteins which the body needs for tissue repair. Doctors and detractors are skeptical of its effects. (Hear what Doctors have to say about Laminine)
There’s always somebody moaning about aches and pains at dinner parties. Helpful suggestions usually involve giving up sugar and alcohol. But over the past year, the well-heeled and well-bred are murmuring about quite another solution over the roast beef.
It’s the high-society supplement known as Laminine, a proprietary once-a-day tablet, produced by a U.S. company, that costs just under £1 a day and contains the amino acids – or proteins – that the body needs for vital processes such as tissue building and repair.

Although medical experts in the UK are unconvinced, loyal fans can’t stop raving about it. Take interior designer, Victoria Fisher, 45, who is radiant with good health. Her hair bounces, she has the body and face of a woman a decade younger and the energy of an athlete.
‘Two years ago, I was suffering from such painful stomach aches, I could barely eat, slept for about three hours a night and was in constant pain,’ she says. She’s convinced that her incredible transformation is attributable to Laminine Food Supplement. (Know more about this product)
Converts say it alleviates all sorts of problems, from stress and menopause to joint pain. Detractors are unconvinced as to just how (or indeed whether) it works, but point out that if it’s as amazing as claimed, doctors across the land would be prescribing it.
So exactly what is Laminine, and ought we all to be investing?
The key ingredients of the supplement are extracted from nine-day-old fertilised hen eggs. This carefully preserved extract contains 20 of the vital proteins needed by our body, as well as an ingredient called Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF).
This growth protein occurs naturally in the body and is involved in such functions as wound healing. When taken orally it apparently stimulates our body’s own stem cells to regenerate and repair.
Added to this heady-sounding mix are both marine and vegetable proteins; meaning that one supplement could well contain all the building blocks for repair that your body needs. Victoria initially didn’t believe Laminine would help her and only began taking it because it was recommended.

Although the potential of rejuvenation via chicken embryo was first suggested in 1929 by a Canadian doctor and then reinvestigated 50 years later by a Norwegian expert, Laminine itself has been available only since 2011 through U.S. company, LifePharm, and is sold in the UK via a number different health websites such as AltheaDistributor.com
So far, so simple, if you can get your head around the fertilized egg thing. But is FGF really feasible as a basic supplement? ‘There is a great deal of interest in clinical uses for FGF,’ says Dr Richard Grose, a senior lecturer in cell biology, at Barts Cancer Institute, in London.

Laminine can cost you approximately £300-a-year. This ‘miracle’ pill comes in powder capsule pill which is basically food grade (made from an avian egg) you can take with no known side effects or even with your drugs or medicine without the need for prescription.
Clinical trials have shown excellent results when applied topically for wound healing and an FGF injection has been approved in the States as a means of protecting cancer patients from painful mouth ulcers that occur during chemotherapy treatment. (Laminine is again accredited for PDR.net 2016)
Laminine helps in nearly everything from reducing anxiety, stopping menopause symptoms and reducing insomnia
‘My main concern is that we have no evidence that FGF can survive through the hostile environment of the stomach and make it into the bloodstream – so the use of FGF in this context is scientifically unproven.’ Nonetheless, testimonials for the supplement have been quite extraordinary from the well-educated women who swear by it.

Victoria lives in Chelsea, West London. She says by the time she came across Laminine she was desperate. ‘But I didn’t believe Laminine would help me. It was recommended by a friend two years ago, and to be honest, I only gave it a go out of basic politeness.
Victoria never looked back
I’d had painful stomach problems for more than a decade because of Crohn’s disease, which meant I could barely eat a thing. After a year of feeling perfectly well, Victoria stopped taking Laminine. ‘Within two weeks the itching, night sweats, and stomach aches started again. I went back on it and haven’t looked back.’
‘I was frequently taking steroids and itching so badly I carried anti-histamines everywhere. I barely slept – I’d go to bed for an hour then wake up. I think I was averaging three hours a night if I was lucky.’ But, after taking a tablet a day for three days, she slept for five hours without waking. (How Laminine affects sleeping patterns)
‘By day six my constant stomach ache had gone. I started to feel happy again, as though I had my mojo back. The last time I saw my doctor I had no symptoms at all. ‘I am able to eat a near normal diet after years of deprivation. Basic pleasures were returned to me.
