In 1929, a Canadian doctor named John Ralston Davidson, former Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, discovered that an injected extract from fertilised chicken eggs could be helpful for cancer patients. In 1943, Dr. Davidson’s work was presented at the Third International Cancer Conference, however, he died soon thereafter.
50 years later…
John Davidson’s death marked the end of research on fertilized hen eggs until Dr. Bjodne Eskeland from Norway picked it up decades later, rediscovering the power of protein from fertilized eggs to enhance human health and performance in a number of ways. He has spent a great deal of his professional life working in the egg industry in Norway. In the 1990’s he hypothesized that incubated and fertilized eggs contained a special protein fraction that could help increase and enhance the human body’s natural testosterone production without supplementation. He then teamed with Nils Christian Mortensen, and they developed the procedure to extract this special protein from fertilized eggs. Once the procedure was perfected, they began testing the extract on human subjects, with very positive results.
Dr. Bjodne Eskeland was born and educated in Norway. He received a Master’s Degree in Science at the Agricultural University of Norway in 1964. He came to the United States for his graduate studies and completed his Ph.D. in Animal Physiology at the University of Missouri, Columbia, in 1971. He has been on staff at the Agricultural University of Norway, the Norwegian Food Institute, and the Environmental Toxicology Department at the University of Trondheim at Norway. In addition, from 1983–1985, he served as a visiting professor at the University of California–Berkeley, in the Department of Nutrition.
LifePharm Global Network’s team of scientists lead by Dr. Bjodne Eskeland and Dr. Alex Martin has further developed the concept. Using the Phyto Embryonic Stage Extract (PESE) contained in the 9-day-old avian egg as a base ingredient, LifePharm looked at the symptoms caused by our diets and environment. They then looked to ‘supercharge’ the PESE for modern day use – the result being what we know today as ‘Laminine’.
