Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is Laminine?
A: Laminine is a combination of Fertilized Avian Egg Extract, Marine Protein from shark cartilage and Phyto Proteins from the pea plant, together known as the OPT9 proprietary blend. Laminine provides the body with the full chain of 22 amino acids essential for cellular health. When in the body, this amino acid chain then acts as a natural “adaptogen,” reprogramming adult stem cells to travel and repair areas of the body and mind that are most in need. It is a safe, natural dietary supplement made in the USA following Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) guidelines.
Q: Does Laminine contain Young Tissue Extract?
A: Fertilized Avian Egg Extract, otherwise known as Young Tissue Extract, has always been in the formulation of Laminine. As mentioned above, LifePharm Global Network’s proprietary OPT9 blend contains Marine Protein, Phyto Protein and Young Tissue Extract from Fertilized Avian Eggs. LifePharm Global Network has never changed the formula in Laminine and has ALWAYS included Young Tissue Extract in our proprietary OPT9 blend.
Q: What is the suggested daily usage of Laminine?
A: The suggested usage for Laminine is one to four capsules daily, taken in the morning and evening before meals.
Q: Is Laminine safe for animal consumption?
A: While Laminine was not developed specifically for consumption by animals, we have no reports of Laminine causing any adverse reactions in them. As with human consumption, if you have any specific concerns or questions about your pets taking Laminine, consult with your veterinarian before giving Laminine to them.
Q: What is the suggested Laminine usage for different animals, such as: cats, dogs, and horses?
A: The suggested usage varies by animal. The vets we have consulted with who use Laminine in their practices recommend the following:
For dogs and cats (split equally in order to consume twice daily):
0-40 pounds: ½ to 1 capsule daily
40-80 pounds: 2 capsules daily
80-100 pounds: 3 capsules daily
For horses, suggested usage is approximately 4 capsules daily.
For more details, please consult the Laminine and Pets FAQs.
Q: Are there adverse reactions to any of the ingredients in Laminine?
A: There are no documented cases or instances of adverse reactions. When used as directed, Laminine is safe and effective, but the effects often vary greatly by individual. Please check with your physician if you are allergic to eggs. As always, if you have any questions about how Laminine may affect you, please check with your physician.
Q: From where does LifePharm Global Network source its Fertilized Avian Egg Extract?
A: Since early 2012, LifePharm Global Network has sourced its Fertilized Avian Egg Extract from organic, cage-free, hormone-free chicken farms in the United States, which is then developed with the process of Hygienic Evaporative Cooling. Hygienic Evaporative Cooling keeps the peptide chains that are so important in Laminine intact when converting the Fertilized Avian Egg Extract from a liquid to a powdered form. This technology is exclusive to LifePharm Global Network and was not readily available anywhere else in the world besides the United States. Previously, LPGN sourced its Fertilized Avian Egg Extract from Norway, but the change occurred in order to ensure the quality, traceability, and supply of our materials. The laws governing avian products are especially stringent in the U.S.A., and LifePharm Global Network prides itself on operating under FDA and cGMP guidelines.
Q: Can Laminine be taken in conjunction with prescription or over-the-counter medication?
A: Laminine is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or ailment. If you have any questions about how Laminine will be affected by other medications you take, please consult with your physician.
Q: Does Laminine contain Laminin?
A: Laminin is an adhesion molecule found in everyone at the cellular level. It is a substance that holds us all together, and therefore part of the inspiration for the name “Laminine.” However, Laminine contains no Laminin.
Q: Why is Laminine only available through Independent Business Owners?
A: Laminine is not available through infomercials or on store shelves. It has a story to tell and is meant to come into the marketplace through the “Relationship Marketing” model, and that is why we have chosen to offer Laminine exclusively through our network of LPGN IBOs.
Q: Can the body really absorb nutrients from Laminine supplement, even with gastric acids and barriers that can just melt it away?
Yes, Laminine food supplement uses nanotechnology (oligopeptides) that allows it to retain its composition and be absorbed by the body and not get digested into the stomach
Q: Why is Laminine referred to as an antiaging supplement?
A: First of all, Laminine does not reverse age but may delay. As we get older and sickly, the aging process is accelerated. Maintaining healthy cells, in turn, helps maintain organs and skin. Skin is the largest organ of the body. Likewise, when there’s an injury (damaged cells), stem cells are activated and Laminine provides the ideal protein synthesis that the body needs to repair itself.
Q: Why does it say “No Approved Therapeutic Claims” on the labels of products in countries like the Philippines?
A: FDA (Philippines) requires all non-drug supplements to have this claim. As food products, evidence-based or clinical studies on these F/DS need not be submitted to the FDA. However, all food supplements are required to carry on their labels the phrase “No Approved Therapeutic Claims” because as food products they are not intended to treat, diagnose or cure diseases. Therapeutic claims can only be made for drug products authorized by the FDA.
