What is Laminine’s Fertilized Avian Egg Extract, and what does it do?
For centuries, hen eggs have been known for their potential health benefits. Traditionally, eggs have been eaten raw for their nutritional and medicinal value. However, raw eggs can also carry the risk of foodborne illnesses such as salmonella.
In 1929, Canadian doctor John Ralston Davidson devised a way to extract growth factors from an egg. He believes that the embryonic stage of a fertilized egg contains critical peptides that can help his early cancer patients recover—and it did.
Following the lead of Dr. Davidson, Norwegian egg expert Dr. Bjodne Eskeland conducted investigative studies on fertilized avian egg extract almost 50 years ago.
He discovered the first-generation Young Tissue Extract that contains a unique combination of amino acids, peptides, and protein fractions that has incredible health benefits when ingested by humans.
Today, the second generation YTE, Fertilized Avian Egg Extract or FAEE, is available through Laminine, along with the blend of other ingredients that makes it unique and more effective in cellular regeneration.
FAEE contains a unique combination of proteins, peptides, antioxidants, immune defense factors, and growth factors not present in any other food item.
Why the chicken egg?
Avian eggs are the largest cells that provide genetic information and necessary proteins for the chick’s growth. They offer a variety of nutrients that support biological functions, making them unique.
Laminine uses fertilized avian egg extract with other amino acids to support protein synthesis during delivery.
Recent scientific discoveries
Recent scientific research reveals the bio-ingredients responsible for the distinct properties of the fertilized nine-day avian egg.
Over the past few decades, there has been significant interest in studying the changes occurring during the egg’s development process and composition. 
Achieving high-quality tissue extract
Laminine has successfully addressed the challenge of preserving the integrity of the nine-day fertilized avian egg extract during processing, which is crucial in extracting FAEE.
They have achieved this through the exclusive use of an evaporative cooling technique that keeps the peptides and growth factors intact without denaturing them.
Denaturing refers to the alteration of protein structure and function. Maintaining these components’ natural system and integrity is vital because they attach to receptor sites on cells to activate cellular processes.
