It does matter where you get your Paw Paw Cell Reg™. Nature's Sunshine allows their genuine Paw Paw Cell Reg™ (as well as all the rest of their products) to be sold only through authorized distributors. Nature's Sunshine has issued a statement that--on some other sites--there have been found products that have been opened, tampered with, out of date, and possibly even fake (even though they carry the Nature's Sunshine label).
We have been authorized sellers of Paw Paw Cell Reg™ since it was introduced by Nature's Sunshine and Dr. Jerry McLaughlin about 15 years ago. With us, you can rest assured that every single bottle that we sell is factory-direct, factory-fresh, factory-tested, meets all Nature's Sunshine quality and potency standards, and sold at the lowest authorized factory price. That is our guarantee to you.
History/Use of Paw Paw Cell Reg™
Note: From time to time we get questions about products that contain the words "paw paw" in them. Our product is the only one researched and developed by Dr. Jerry McLaughlin, and is produced according to his methods.
In the early 1970’s, Purdue professor Dr. Jerry McLaughlin was first tasked to find botanical sources of anti-carcinoma potential, and the focus became that of Asimina Triloba, better known as Paw Paw.
In his research, Dr. McLaughlin found that it was a source of phytochemcals called acetogenins. He and his graduate students isolated over 40 of these acetogenins, and two of them in particular, bullatacin and bullatalicin, showed powerful promise for anti-carcinoma treatment.
A full set of slides narrated by Dr. McLaughlin detailing his work from discovery to trials can be found on the website www.pawpawresearch.com. His work has been the recipient of several awards and countless publications in prestigious journals. He is also in high demand as a public speaker on the topic.
After retiring from Purdue, Dr. McLaughlin served as the Vice President of Research and Development for Nature’s Sunshine, and licensed his methods and formula exclusively to NSP.
Paw Paw Cell Reg™ is covered by several US patents, and the use of paw paw generically for several purposes has been covered by over a dozen patents belonging to Dr. McLaughlin.
Paw Paw is often confused (sometimes intentionally by its competitors) with its cousin graviola. During his research, Dr. McLaughlin tested several brands of graviola that are marketed as “paw paw” or “Brazilian paw paw”. The tests indicated that these graviola products were far inferior to real paw paw. First, the acetogenins found in graviola do not have the potent chemical structure found in the acetogenins in paw paw. Secondly, Dr. McLaughlin found that these products are not standardized—in other words, the amount of acetogenins found bottle-to-bottle, capsule-to-capsule, varied haphazardly. The best graviola product that he tested was found to be only 4% as powerful as paw paw.
Typically Paw Paw Cell Reg™ is used in a program with Immune Stimulator. Protease Plus and Thai-Go™ are also often added. However, these products are normally taken at different times of the day than the Paw Paw Cell Reg™.
There are several good websites that talk about Paw Paw much better than can be discussed on a commercial website. We recommend pawpawresearch.com, alternativecancer.us, and self-helpcancer.org as good sources of information. While we do not necessarily agree with or endorse everything on the last two sites, they do have a lot of good information. The Paw Paw Research site would be the most productive for information on this topic.
