|Rekon Pro (TFA Plus) (60 Veggie caps)
NAP's TFA Plus was designed by Dr. D'Adamo to boost healthy natural
antibody function. Many malignant cells (such as those found in breast
and stomach cancer) develop a tumor marker called the
Thomsen-Friedenreich (T) antigen. This antigen is suppressed in normal
healthy cells, much like a rock is covered over by water at high tide. T
antigen only becomes 'unsuppressed' as a cell moves towards malignancy,
much like the covered rock in our example becomes uncovered as the tide
moves out. It is so rare to find the Tn antigen in healthy tissue, that
we actually have antibodies against it.
Healthy cells do not normally express the T or Tn antigen, which are 'encrypted'
or covered up by polysaccharides much the same way that a rock is
covered by water at high tide. In malignant or pre-malignant cells, the
ability to synthesize the polysaccharideswhich normally cover the Tn
antigen is often lost, which causes Tn to be 'expressed' or uncovered,
much like a falling tide will often uncover previously hidden rocks at a
low tide. Normally we carry anti-Tn antibodies (called Thomsen
Friedenreich Agglutinins, or TFAs) in our blood. Everyone has
pre-existing TFA antibodies which are primarily induced by your
intestinal flora. These antibodies (one of the very few antibodies our
immune system allows us to make against ourselves) normally search out
and tag mutated cancer cells expressing Tn antigens.
Our production of TFAs tends to drop with age, infirmity, and in general
overall levels are lower in individuals with blood groups A and AB. It
has been estimated that in about 90% of all cancers and some leukemias,
Tn antigens are expressed and uncovered.
As a general rule, an orderly expression of Tn antigens on a cancer cell
usually indicates a cancer with a relatively favorable outlook. Thus,
insuring that we have healthy levels of TFAs should a prime concern. TFA
Plus can help maintain healthy TFA levels in the body. For more
information on Tn antigen and strategies to boost TFA, consult the Blood
Type Diet Encyclopedia pages xxx-xxx.
Can be used by all blood types.
