BioBran MGN-3 is a non-toxic, nutritional supplement produced from rice bran, rich in polysaccharides, proteoglycans and hemicelluloses. It is modified by shiitake mushroom enzyme to provide a high degree of absorption. The most active ingredient of BioBran is arabinoxylan a branched sugar with immune-modulatroy effects. BioBran does not contain genetically modified ingredients, and is suitable for vegetarians.
BioBran® MGN-3 has been developed by Daiwa Pharmaceutical in Japan in the early 90’s and successfully sold as functional food worldwide for the last 25 years. It received very positive customer responses as immune modulator.
What is BioBran MGN-3?
BioBran MGN-3 is manufactured using the water-soluble dietary fiber (hemicellulose B), which constitutes about 5% of rice bran as its main source. Rice bran hemicellulose B contains as principal ingredient arabinoxylan, comprised of xylose and arabinose as its constitutive sugars, and has the features that its structure is included in a dietary fiber and it has a comparatively low molecular weight. Derivative, which possesses immunoregulatory properties was successfully developed by partially digesting the carbohydrate of shiitake mushroom mycelia. This is a rice bran Arabinoxylan derivative.

BioBran is very easily absorbed into the body through the normal processes of absorption in the intestines.
BioBbran’s immune enhancing effects kick in in just a few days.
There is none of the effectiveness tail-off experienced with most other supplements. This means that BioBran can be very effective long-term.
Natural and GMO-Free
BioBran is a natural food supplement made from rice bran and the enzymes of the Shiitake mushroom. It is not a drug, a synthetic chemical or genetically modified.
BioBran has been clinically shown to be completely non-toxic, even in extremly high doses (intake scaled down by body weight).
Backed by Research
Arabinoxylan compound from rice bran has been (and continues to be) the focus of scientific and clinical research, in Japan, the USA and Europe.
High Quality Manufacturing
BioBran is manufactured to the exacting Standards.
Strengthening the immune system
NK cells contain substances that help fight abnormal cells and some viruses. As the process gets underway, molecules bound to the surface of NK cells are also activated. These molecules alert T-cells that an attack is going on so that the they can join the response.
A laboratory study was devised to see whether low and high doses of Biobran could improve the functioning of NK cells in responding to these immune system modulators. Results show that Biobran was effective in increasing the production of tumour necrosis factor. Production increased from 22-fold using a low dose of Biobran, to 47-fold using a high dose.
Interferon production also showed an increase, though at lower levels to tumour necrosis factor. The study also tested substances designed to help with specific immune responses. Biobran stimulated these substances, too. Additionally, Biobran helped improve the ability of inter-leukin-2 to react. Interleukin-2 is a cytokine, a substance that can improve the body’s natural response to infection and disease.
Biobran needs the help of cytokines if it is to be effective in strengthening NK cells. NK cells activated by interleukin-2 were found to stimulate the release of tumour necrosis factor and interferon.
The researchers concluded that Biobran can be used as a safe means of stimulating the immune system.
