WIKI ABSTRACT: Laminine is composed of amino acids (AA) and the stem cell architect FibroBlast Growth Factor or FGF. Clinical studies shows that this powerful combination boost the body’s healing process causing delay in rapid cell aging due to stress or diseases. It has also been found to promote wound healing, quicker muscle recovery, increased libido, and better sleep. (A1)
DEMOGRAPHICS: When it was introduced in the Philippines people with various sickness & complaints embraced Laminine without discounting any side effects. The results were very positive and those who experienced side effects had it only for a few days, as part of the detoxification or healing process of Laminine. To date, Laminine has auto-delivery in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Philippines, Russia, Ukraine, USA, & United Kingdom or UK except for Japan, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, & South Korea.
DISCLAIMER: Laminine Side Effects article is based on the user testimonials of #TeamAlthea’s direct customers and independent research. Reaction may vary from other users. For questions, please comment below or send us an email. Let us know if you have complaints about Laminine.
There are no significant or long term side effects of Laminine, complaints or contraindications from Laminine’s ingredients. Likewise there are no known interactions between drugs or medicine with Laminine.
Laminine is 100% food grade that comes from highly organic sources. It’s core ingredient comes from a 9th day old Fertilized Avian Egg Extract (FAEE). Like any other food, unless you have allergic reactions to egg, soy, or sea plants, there should be no side effects.
2 out 10 may experience soft bowel movement for the first few days. This happens when the cells or organs immediately begins to react to the detoxification process of Laminine. If you experience this, you can continue with your regular diet but with plenty of liquids. Avoid oily or fatty food.
People with severe fatigue or high levels of Cortisol taking Laminine may experience sleepiness, usually by late afternoon. This is the body’s response when certain parts of the body needs immediate rest to repair or relax itself. This lasts only 1-2 days or after the body has taken a full 10 hours rest, the body immediately can begin to respond to the energy boost Laminine can induce by the amino acids.
First time users may experience an increased body temperature due to enhanced blood circulation. Laminine affects the stem cells in our body, which in turn promote faster blood production or replenishment. This happens when the person was exposed to infection, or where low blood count is present. FibroBlast Growth Factor immediately reacts and a sense of warming maybe experienced.
If the person suffers from an organ damage, slight pain may be experience in isolated areas of the body. This is a normal side effect when cellular repair is at work, and Laminine is working effectively on these areas. The experience or complaints we received are usually those from people with organ failures, particularly in the kidney, lungs and colon.
For cancer patients, expect twitching or increased temperature in the affected areas. Based on our user-testimonials, it lasts 3 to 5 days, the patient begins to feel better after. Our data is for cancer stage 1-4 and have not metastasis. We also notice that cancer patients who have not undergone chemotherapy had better responses and showed significant decrease in cancer cells in 30 days*.
*Based on 10 customers who had cancer of the breast, lungs, and colon.

People who are allergic to egg or yellow pea may avoid the product. However, the allergic reaction outweighs the benefit of taking Laminine. A person with egg allergy may take 1 capsule of Laminine every 2 days for a month or with longer intervals, until tolerated.
Allergic reactions may include skin rashes which are usually very minimal. Others have experienced watery nose or small skin outbreaks which eventually disappeared after few weeks.
To date, there are no known contraindication or drug interactions when taking Laminine Food Supplement. If you wish to confirm a known interaction between your medicine and Laminine, you can check with a “Drug Interaction Checker” website. Please include these ingredients: Egg Extract (FGF2), Yellow Pea, & Fish Cartilage
You can take your prescribed drug maintenance or medicine and take Laminine as a supplement two hours before or after intake. If you are unsure whether you can take food supplement, you may ask your Doctor and relay the ingredients. Please mention also that Laminine is supported by clinical studies.
However, there were reported tolerable stomach pain when Laminine Omega+++ and Digestive+++ is taken together and with other medicines. It is recommended to set at least 2 hours before or after taking these supplements and the medicine.
In severe cases of infection, especially if the cause is viral or bacterial, Doctor’s prescription on antibiotic is encouraged. Laminine will be the nutritional support to help with the recovery. Laminine is not intended to replace antiviral or bacterial drugs. There are no reported reaction with antibiotic, since Laminine is technically 100% food.
Food that is known to react with antibiotic* are those that are highly acidic such as carbonated beverages, citrus juices such as grapefruit, chocolate and tomato-based products which Laminine does not have or contain even in traces. (Source: *MayoClinic.com)
Probiotic and prebiotic supplements help when taking antibiotics specially for children. The seeming ‘burn’ effect of the medicine is overcome by digestive health products.
Kidney failures are normally characterized by high levels of creatinine (proteins). Laminine is basically protein and users have attributed the increase or spike of creatinine in their kidney due to Laminine.
Laminine’s protein foundation are referred to as “essential protein” which is a kind of protein that the kidney needs in order to repair itself.
It is normal for the creatinine to increase for CKD patients taking it at high dosage because Laminine is basically protein. However, this kind of protein is needed to synthesis and repair kidney cells. The increase is temporary and usually spikes 1-2 weeks or no spikes at all can be felt. What the patient can do is to reduce the intake from 1 capsule a day to every other day, until it can be tolerated.
We had a CKD case who took 9 capsules per day. The creatinine spiked and he experienced dizziness, dosage was lowered to half. Dosage can be set low from 1 to 4 capsules per day instead of the recommended dosage of 4 to 9 capsules per day for patients who prefer a less aggressive approach. Kidney repair may take time and we have seen an average of 12 to 24 months to be completely recovered*. (Please read disclaimer below)
You can read customer testimonials on those who took their chances on Laminine and exhibited complete recovery from an average of 6 months to 24 months of taking Laminine as a kidney failure supplement.
A healing reaction occurs when the body is overwhelmed with the rapid changes or healing that are taking place. The patient is being set on the road to recovery. This may occur for a few hours or a week at the most. This may be in the form of rashes, pains, or dizziness.
This happens when a person experiences healing and suddenly responds to it. The body immediately recognizes the toxins in the body and rushes to flush it out. You can continue with your normal day, provided you take enough electrolytes or water to replace and help flush unwanted particles in your body.
In rare cases, a person with an advanced kidney problem may experience a sudden spike in creatinine level. Since Laminine is high in amino acid (building block of proteins), these very substance is needed to balance and ward off the excessive proteins, a fatty or damaged kidney has to begin with.
If you are suffering from an acute infection in the kidney, liver, colon, and or metastasized cancer – you may experience healing reaction. Some relate this side effect similarly to but not the same as “herxing”.
Fortunately, there are no reports on Laminine resulting into herxing or herxheimer. However there were reports on similar symptoms such as having mild joint or muscle pain, temporary skin rash, or low grade.
Herxing occurs when injured or dead bacteria release their endotoxins (large amounts of toxins) into the blood and tissues faster than the body can comfortably handle it. This purging process usually lasts a few days or until these toxins are out of your body. Patients report that a Herxheimer reaction makes them feel as though their disease symptoms have gone from bad to worse.
Pregnant women or nursing mothers should not take Laminine as food supplement unless the OB-Gynecologist have prescribed the product. Although we have pregnant and nursing women who takes Laminine as food supplement, caution is advised for pregnant women and infants.
Studies on Laminine for pregnant women and fetal development is not available. Although in theory, egg nutrition will help the mother sustain necessary nutrients for a developing fetus. However, if the fetus is allergic to eggs, taking Laminine can have dangerous side effects. Pregnant women who are malnutritioned and in need of food supplements such as Laminine should first ask the Doctor before taking the product.
There are Gynecologists who recommend amino acid supplements for pregnant women expected to have early delivery. A boost by taking in amino acid among pregnant women will assure a more develop and robust fetus, giving added developmental protection if an earlier labor is expected. (A2)
Mothers who have severe malnutrition need food supplements like Laminine, the risk justifies the means for as long as the mother herself do not have egg allergy. Laminine may help a lot for women who are susceptible to (temporary) gestational diabetes or hormone imbalance, which is a direct side effect of being pregnant. Studies show it helps regulate sugar and certain hormones.
The amino acid taurine* is considered as a non-essential amino acid because our bodies can manufacture it. However, boosting Taurine through Laminine supplement helps more to protect our cell membranes, especially that of children. The function of this amino acids keeps excess sodium out of our cells and brain cells.
Taurine is also critical for the immune defenses. It protects our immune cells from being destroyed as they fight off germs. Without it, the immune system cells will have difficulty functioning and may result in a weak immune system.
Laminine is not an immune booster and is not intended to kill germs and bacteria that invade the body. A single Laminine capsule is not a significant source of Taurine and should not replace the colostrum and other nutrients found in mother’s milk.
Laminine is intended to help rejuvenate cell by repairing or restoring it to its original state. Evidently, these qualities leads to antiaging benefits which can be said as a positive side effect of the product. Furthermore, the right mix of amino acids have been clinically shown to keep hair and skin healthy supporting the antiaging claim.
Amino acids supply nutrients to nourish our skin, hair and nails. This process strengthens connective tissue and keeps the skin smooth and elastic, the nails firm and the hair strong. Creatinine stimulates collagen production thus plays an important role for healthy skin. As we age, cell division slows down.
Added to the antiaging qualities include testimonies that Laminine users have better skin, which is technically a side effect when you take amino acids like Glutathione. In a sense, Laminine does help the production of collagen in the body but not enough to produce the desired youthful look found in more sophisticated skin or face serum products. The workings of amino acids combined with the powerful cell signaling of FibroBlast Growth Factor still amazes Scientist who see positive results from it.
Glutathione, considered as the mother of all antioxidants is a simple molecule produced naturally in our body. With the supplementation of amino acids or special protein, it provides the body with a powerful antioxidant that was originally intended for liver, kidney, Alzheimer’s and heart diseases. Today, it is being marketed as ‘skin whitener’, which is technically a side effect of the supplement.
Glutathione is a combination of three simple building blocks of protein or amino acids — cysteine, glycine and glutamine. Laminine has the complete 22 full-chain of amino acid.
The cells are only renewed every 30 to 40 days (from age 40 onward). This reduces the number of new cells which are needed for a youthful appearance. Collagen and Elastin begin to decrease starting at age. Add to this UV rays, exposure to pollution and unhealthy diet. Although Laminine does not contain collagen, collagen’s makeup is technically amino acids.*
* Collagen contains specific amino acids Glycine, Proline, Hydroxyproline and Arginine. Collagen makes up approximately 30% of the proteins within the body.
Arginine and Carnitine forms Creatinine, which stimulated to produce more collagen and Elastin when ingested. Creatine are capable of repairing damaged DNA. It also protects the cells from harmful substances by surrounding them with a film of water. This allows the skin to replenish lost moisture. More importantly, collagen increases the ability to store water in the skin.
Glutamine regulates the acid-base balance and firms the skin. Glutamine can drive off poisonous ammonia in the kidneys. It therefore supports the regulation of the acid-base balance and results in firm skin. Although Glutamine can be produced by the body, it is not able to produce it in sufficient quantities as we age.
We need Laminine to boost this nutrient in our body. Glutamine have shown to slow the process of aging, which is why scientists refer to it as the “fountain of youth from inside our body”.
When Laminine was globally introduced in 2012, a lot of testimonies included having better sleep. This can be attributed to the reduction of the stress hormone cortisol which in turn increases serotonin levels that provide a person with better sleep, but not necessarily being sleepy. Although as mentioned, Laminine did have sleepiness as “healing side effects” for those who took it for the first few days.
The amino acid Glutamine stabilizes our immune system and helps against stress, depression and anxiety. Glutamine has a calming effect and counteracts symptoms of stress. Patients with exhaustion and cerebral disorders often show a deficiency of Glutamic acid. Anxiety, sleeplessness and lack of concentration are also connected to this thus assumed that Laminine provides the balance and fixes of the body’s need to sleep or focus during the day.
Our body produces Glutamine from Glutamic acid. Glutamine increases the production of GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) and GABA is a natural sedative in the brain. The result is peace of mind, balance in stressful situations, improved concentration and calm sleep. Glutamine also supports the treatment of depression. (A5)
Unique Testimony: Since around 2013, Althea Group received a unique testimony of a 49 years old female diagnosed with Schizophrenia since her early 20s. She has difficulty sleeping and occasionally loses her sanity which happens if she stays awake for 48 to 60 hours. Within 3 to 7 weeks of taking Laminine, her sleeping habit became normal and had a better mood. She no longer had signs of manic depression. After 3 years, she stopped Laminine, unfortunately her mental breakdown and sleeping problems returned.
What the patient took: 2 capsules of Laminine at bedtime.
When YTE was formally introduced by Dr. Bjodne Eskeland in 2006, research on the Young Tissue Extract included a significant test result on a person’s increased libido. The effect on sexual function is maintained by Laminine when it introduced its own YTE version called FAEE contained in Laminine’s OPT9 Blend.
While it is not the direct intention of the ingredient blend, most male users have noticed the improvement on their sexual activity. This can be attributed as a side effect when technically, we are less stressed. Laminine has clinical studies on reducing cortisol levels that when heightened results on sexual dysfunction.
Hanover Medical School studied the effect or side effects of Arginine on patients with erectile dysfunction. About seventy volunteers received daily doses of Arginine for four weeks and then placebos for another four weeks. The results of the study have been submitted to a medical journal for publication and showed very positive results.
The amino acid Ornithine is a perfectly-suited supplement to Arginine. It is reduced to Arginine in the body, but this occurs very slowly, so that its effects last a long time. The combination of both amino acids improves the overall regeneration capability of the body and leads to a noticeable increase in vitality. This positive effect is proven to support erectile capabilities in men, thus the positive side effect on sexual desire. (A5)
Other positive side effects also include testimonies on people being pregnant after many years of trying. Although pregnancy is not included in the list of Laminine benefits, we have had at least four direct testimonies as of 2016 on married couples that are able to have children after taking Laminine from 6 to 12 months. Theoretically, this can be attributed to the leveling of cortisol and perhaps the effects hormonal balance of the female taking Laminine.
Laminine is not a fat burning capsule, however it contains amino Acids that can produce fat burning hormones to supports the transfer of fat to energy. Amino acids such as Carnitine may help with weight control as it improves the transport of fatty acids as fuel to be utilized by the cell, but Laminine does not contain the necessary amount of Carnitine to produce this result.
There are certain diseases particularly in diabetic patients that causes a person to gain weight not because of overeating but because fats and sugars are not utilized and burned as energy. FGF utilizes cell energy and use it to repair the body, in turn may have fat burning ability, but only to a limited extent.
What about people who say they lost weight because of Laminine?
There are a few sellers and users who testifies they lost weight with Laminine, unfortunately this could not be verified and may have been isolated and very few incidental cases. As such, it can be said that losing weight was a side effect. We have not received any testimonials on people who had a significant drop in weight as a result of Laminine.
Incidentally, LifePharm’s new product Digestive+++, a probiotic and prebiotic blend helps the stomach process food effectively and support metabolism, resulting to a better fat burning ability.
Prof. Dr. Klaus Miehlke was the leading expert on bone diseases in Germany. He said that in joint or cartilage diseases, it is imperative that the human body receives cartilage-forming substances in sufficient quantities. However, a healthy diet alone cannot provide this which is why scientists recommend taking nutritional supplements containing cartilage-forming substances.
The amino acid Methionine is among the cartilage-forming substances. It is an essential amino acid, therefore cannot be produced by the body, thus we need supplements for it. Joint cartilage requires sulfur. If there are enough Sulfur in our body we need not worry about cartilage related problems.
Arginine is a crucial factor for bone creation. More so, it supports the production of collagen where collagen as a protein is the basic component of various connective tissues (such as cartilage) and bone. In this way, Arginine supports growth of the osteoblasts where bone mass is formed. Arginine deficiency can lead to osteoporosis, especially in the case of older women, as proven in several studies conducted.
Arthritis and Osteoporosis may need special supplements or medication that Laminine alone cannot provide. Supplements such as Laminine Omega+++ as a supplement to Laminine (Original formulation) contains high quality omega fatty acids may help aid inflammation. It also contains Vitamin-K which directs calcium to go where it is needed.
However, those who suffer arthritis as a result of sulfur deficiency need a boost of Methionine. Methionine contains anti-inflammatory properties such as pain-relieving effect and stimulates the cartilage cells to create more cartilaginous tissue. (A4)
Amino acids are important for many structures and functions, particularly in muscle tissue for building muscle mass and strength. Multiple studies prove that amino acid help build muscle mass and strength. This is why amino acids are so popular among muscle builders.
As we age, bones become frail and lose muscle mass over time. One reason is that as the body begins to age, digestion and absorption of essential nutrients are impaired. Nutrients from food including proteins are not absorbed as well as when younger. Elderly people also may not eat as much food as when they were younger. There is loss of muscle mass—partially due to the aging process and less exercise overall.
Studies with elderly people who were given supplemental protein and amino acids showed a gain in muscle mass. Studies have also shown that elderly people supplemented with protein and amino acids can ward off infections better and if they become sick, it is not as severe. For example, influenza virus effects are lessened. (Source: Clinical study by Kimberly Lloyd M.S.)
To support the fast growth and development of a child, food supplement can be used to bridge inadequate intake of protein. Not all children enjoy eating meats and products rich in proteins to support their bones, muscle, and height development.
Parents of children who take Laminine at least once a day have not reported any negative side effects. Instead, kids who take it have more focus and energy throughout the day. As young as 1 year old can take Laminine, provided that the child be tested for egg allergy and or with permission from a pediatrician. There have been reports as well on children with Autism, ADHD and even Down Syndrome becoming more calm and focus while on Laminine.
* No scientific study is currently available to show Laminine can increase height.
Unique Testimony: In October 2014, Althea Group received a unique testimony of a male patient in his 50s who was suffering from bone decompression accompanied by arthritis on the legs. He was due for operation but took his chance on Laminine. A month later, cartilage and bones formed repairing the decompression. What the patient took: 2 capsules of Laminine before breakfast, 2 capsules of Laminine Omega+++ during lunch, and 2 capsules of Laminine at bedtime.
Amino acid regulate hormones such as insulin, cortisol, adrenaline. These are hormones necessary to heal our organs. This is one of the reason that those who take Laminine experience faster recovery and healing in certain areas of the body, if not all. The FibroBlast Growth Factor (FGF) in Laminine signals these amino acids (also in Laminine) to repair and regenerate cells, in turn cell tissues or organs such heart, liver, kidney, and pancreas*. (A3)
*The repair or wound healing activity on cellar level is documented in the Physician’s Desk Reference, 2015. Click here for clinical report.
Research have shown that Laminine through the combination of its main ingredient Fertilized Avian Egg Extract (FAEE) and amino acids promotes rapid cell repair. For example, the amino acid arginine is essential for wound healing or combating infection. When paired with Lysine, the immune boost becomes elevated. All these are synthesized in our body through the combination of Laminine’s amino acid content and FGF.
Studies were done to show how Laminine Omega lowers cholesterol. The study was designed to test the effects of Laminine and in combination with Laminine OMEGA+++, on cholesterol, low density lipoproteins (LDL), high density lipoproteins (HDL), triglycerides and blood pressure. There were 15 individuals in the study, broken into three groups of five. This was a double-blind placebo-controlled study that took place over a total period of 12 weeks.
These data suggest that Laminine OMEGA+++ helps to down-regulate cholesterol, LDL, triglyceride and blood pressure levels (Group B), but when taken with Laminine, the benefits are more significant as a whole. (Source: Clinical Studies on Cholesterol)
Laminine Omega was created as a supplement to Laminine Omega. Omega Fatty Acids 3, 6, 9 were added together with Vitamin K2 and CoQ10.
Laminine was originally intended by Dr. John Ralston Davidson for cancer, therefore it is safe to say that the ‘healing effects’ it has are technically positive side effects. Egg nutrition taken from the Albumen were once held in theory, until it was proven in 1929, subsequently developed in mid-1980 and by late 2000 came out with a proprietary ingredient called OPT-9.
Laminine’s patented OPT-9 is composed of 100% natural and organic food material. It is a functional food with no known adverse side effects to all types of body condition.
The beneficial impacts of Laminine are: positive effects on memory, skin, libido, energy, joints, muscles, stress, sleep and emotional stability – PDR.net
