Healing Support for Cancer: Fermented Wheat Germ Extract (Avemar)
Avemar is a mixture of natural compounds created from an extract made from the fermentation of wheat germ using baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) by a standardized, patented process. Naturally fermented wheat germ extract has been the subject of much research when it comes to cancer treatment. What makes it stand out is its proven effectiveness in the destruction of a variety of types of cancer cells. So how does it work?
Simply put, Avemar reduces glucose flow into cancer cells. Cancer cells need glucose – sugar – in order to grow, so inhibiting this flow dramatically reduces their proliferation. Interestingly, in the presence of Avemar compounds, cancer cells actually use any available glucose to produce substances that inhibit cell division and stimulate programmed cell death (apoptosis) within the tumor while leaving the healthy cells alone. This reaction is just the opposite of what is typical – rather than using glucose to grow, it is using glucose to shrink! This is a good thing in itself, obviously, but the positives are experienced in more ways than one. Because the tumors are not consuming all of the glucose, the person’s metabolism balances and he/she is able to gain weight. Since this is often difficult for cancer patients, especially for those in advanced stages, it is a welcome change that allows the individual to gather strength and actually increase tolerance to conventional therapies such as surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.
That’s not all. Have you heard of Natural Killer (NK) Cells? These are specialized white blood cells that are constantly on the lookout for cells that are foreign or faulty. Once the NK cells find the bad cells, they are able to destroy them. Unfortunately, the process doesn’t always go as planned when it comes to cancer cells, as they have the ability to mask themselves with a substance that tricks the NK cells into thinking they are normal. When this happens, the NK cells fail to seek out or destroy the cancer cells. Interestingly, Avemar has the unique ability to suppress the release of this masking substance by the cancer cells, which allows the NK cells to do their job and destroy the cancer.
As for any adverse side effects, Avemar has none. And it has been used successfully in conjunction with conventional therapies – in fact, it was found to help bone marrow continue to produce red blood cells following radiation and chemotherapy. Studies have shown that these conventional therapies were significantly more effective, the severity and frequency of their devastating side effects like nausea, fatigue and depression, were considerably less, and patients’ immune systems recovered more quickly with the addition of Avemar.
