Questions and Answers

If someone skips a dose of Avemar, then will it still work?

The effects of Avemar do not immediately dissipate if one dose is skipped. However, since its effects are gradual and continual, skipping doses is not recommended and should be avoided in order to receive Avemar’s full effect.

Who should not consume Avemar?

Women who are either pregnant or nursing should not consume Avemar. It should not be consumed by people who have had an organ or tissue transplant, for those suffering from bleeding GI ulcers, malabsorption syndrome, gluten sensitive enterophaties (celiac sprue), fructose intolerance or who have hypersensitivity to gluten, wheat germ or any of the components or ingredients of this product or suffering from disorders where the symptoms are aggrevated by the overfunction of cellular immune response. It is recommended to discontinue Avemar usage 2 days before barium X-ray contrast examinations and resume 2 days after the completion of the examination.

What are the side effects of Avemar?

Soft stool, unsettled stomach and nausea are the rare side effects from using Avemar.

How long does someone have to be on Avemar before they notice a difference?

People often report improvements in appetite, energy and daily activity within 3 weeks after first taking Avemar. Clinical studies have shown that the eventual improvements in terms of blood markers, CT scans, MRI’s images might occur after 3 months.

How long should someone continue to take Avemar?

Human clinical trials involving hundreds of subjects, who have taken Avemar daily over a period of several years have proven it to be safe and beneficial for long-term usage. Since Avemar supports the basic mechanisms that the body utilizes to respond to both stress and the daily challenges to health, it may make sense to use it during the time following a diagnosis of cancer.

Can Avemar be taken during radiotherapy or chemotherapy?

Extensive research, cell line, animal and human data, have shown that Avemar does not interfere with the mechanisms of cancer therapies that were studied, but rather enhances their beneficial effects, while reducing their side effects.

Can Avemar be used in along with prescription medications?

We are not aware of drug to drug interactions apart from Vitamin C. In vivo and in vitro studies have shown that Avemar, when taken together with Vitamin C, reduces the beneficial effects of Avemar. At least, two hours, therefore, must pass between taking Avemar and Vitamin C.

Can Avemar be used with other dietary supplements?

We are not aware of interference with other dietary supplements, and special diets. Please consult with a health care professional that specializes in natural and nutritional medicine for a comprehensive protocol of diet, exercise and dietary supplements.

What other reasons besides cancer would someone take Avemar?

Since many auto-immune disorders are caused by an imbalance in Th1/Th2 levels, Avemar has demonstrated an effective use in clinical studies involving SLE (Systemis Lupus Erythematodus) and Rheumatoid arthritis patients. Available data is not sufficient enough to support the usage of Avemar in other autoimmune disorders.

Is there a recommendation for using Avemar at a lower “maintenance level” dosage?

Since research has shown very dramatic and unique benefits from using Avemar at the suggested levels of usage, and since these levels of usage are entirely safe and non-toxic, research has not considered the usage of Avemar at lower levels.

Is Avemar organic?

Avemar is 100% natural, made from wheat germ extract fermented by bakers yeast. It is free of chemicals and synthetics.

How does it compare to other wheat germ supplements?

There is really no comparison. Pure wheat germ, wheat germ oil, and wheat germ extract powder (often found as an ingredient in “green drinks”) may have generally beneficial properties, but the research on these products has not shown the effects that Avemar has demonstrated related to helping to maintain normal, health cellular metabolism and immune regulation.
