GcMAF - what is it? And can it help you on your journey to better health?
GcMAF (Gc protein-derived macrophage activating factor) is a protein that is naturally produced by the body and plays an important role in the healthy functioning of the immune system, and especially in activated macrophages, the white blood cells that protect against cancerous cells, bacteria and ‘foreign substances.’
The GcMAF theory postulates that people who are immunocompromised have low levels of the protein and are more susceptible to cancer, multiple sclerosis and other systemic conditions. Cancer cells produce an enzyme, nagalase, that shuts down macrophage activity, and so the typical cancer patient has high levels of nagalase and low levels of GcMAF.
This theory – and the discovery of GcMAF – is the work of Dr Nobuto Yamamoto, a biophysicist who announced his discovery in 1991 while working at Hahnemann Medical College (now Drexel University College of Medicine) in Philadelphia.
