Educated at the University of South Carolina, College of Pharmacy, AJ later formed his own company in 1980 with a focus on improving health through supporting the immune system. Fascinated by the field of immunology, he became involved in an intensively researched product, βeta-1, 3-D Glucan. However, the purified βeta Glucan used in the laboratories was prohibitively expensive and economically unfeasible for the average person. So, this became his main focus – to develop a highly purified glucan that could be affordable and beneficial for the public. In the late 1990s, this led to the development of a remarkable ingredient.
Since its emergence in the marketplace, AJ’s beta glucan has been recognized in medical literature as “the only relevant immune modulator.” Study after study, done in major universities and hospitals throughout the US, Europe, Australia and Asia, have been published about the safety and benefits of Beta Glucan, and the superiority of AJ’s products. AJ has always promoted the use of evidence based, peer reviewed scientific research. It provides the best way for an individual to make sound decisions on products in today’s marketplace. Claims can be made by anyone, but nothing takes the place of unbiased research.
In the 21 st century, there has not been a more active and successful individual in the advancement of the science and education of Beta Glucans and their safety and benefits to human and animal health. AJ Lanigan has taken the lead with some of the most brilliant researchers of our time, which has led to accomplishments, not only in commerce, but also in helping to drive medical journal publications, book publications and in presenting educational lectures on a continual basis. These works are now used worldwide as the backbone for understanding the immune system and Beta Glucan.
