A Miracle in a Capsule

Laminin became a religious icon beginning 2008 when it was made popular by ‘religious science.'  Laminin is a protein that supports cells cohesiveness in our organ (along with many other functions).

Laminin has “arms” that associate with other molecules to form sheets and bind cells. They’re like the “glue” of our cell, organs, and body altogether.  It is important because without Laminin, our cells won’t be in place to function properly. Christian followers were quick to juxtapose that Laminin is like Jesus, holding life altogether.

The controversy of Laminin is debated between science and religion. Those who believe in Christianity associates the cross-like shape of Laminin with Jesus, while scientists say it has nothing to do with God, it’s just a practical structure.(Show the cross-like structure of Laminin)

The Philippines is a Catholic nation with millions of Christ-followers, and when an American company – Laminine Supplement came in, Pinoys were quick to tie the knot with this ‘miracle in a capsule’ as divine.

Talking to the company that owns Laminine, LifePharm said it's purely coincidental; they did not intend to associate Laminin with Laminine as something to do with Jesus. 

This food supplement did come from the word ‘Laminin’ because it is also a protein that signals cells to activate stem cells in the body and the number ‘nine’ which is the ninth day when this special protein is taken from the albumin of a fertilized avian egg  (FAEE).

Nonetheless, both Laminin and Laminine are important to the body. It offers many benefits for the busy Filipino that includes being able to handle stress better, better skin, boosts mental health, and even as an anti-aging supplement.

One thing that makes it stand out is its clinical study claims. According to Lucy So, team leader of Althea Distributor, one of LifePharm’s global IBO-Distributors, customers claim it helped them with various illness from kidney, liver, bone, diabetes, and cancer problems. 

While Laminine is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. The recovery from illness vary depending on the facts and circumstances of each person.

We live in a stressful environment, and with traffic and the difficulty of moving around Metro Manila, the added pressure from work is not healthy. We do need food supplements like Laminine, whether or not it has something to do with Laminin or not.

Laminine is a 100% natural food supplement made of Fertilized Avian Egg Extract (FAEE). It contains OPT9 Blend formula with an active ingredient Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF2) that repairs damaged or aging cells. Each capsule has 22 amino acids+ and important vitamins and trace minerals.

The Duterte government has given hope to millions of Filipinos for a better Philippines but many feels otherwise. Although the President recognizes the sovereignty of God, the Filipinos, particularly the youth continues to be lost with negative online influences, something must be done.

A few Christian groups have taken arms to fight the real enemy towards a progressive Philippines. One of them is John15.Rocks. Organized by volunteers, John15.Rocksis a website established in March 2017.

It was a burden of 20 years ago, to network what different Christian Charity organizations can do to help those in need. John15.Rocks sees the potential of social media to help the youths who are slowly being imprisoned by their addiction online.

A 12-year old can have easy access to pornography just by playing an online game. Internet also is a venue for cyberbullying, activities for sexual meet-ups that make them open to HIV infections, social media challenges that leads to suicide, and of course violence and immorality.

Christian groups should come together to influence the Filipino youth by exposing them to the right moral values. Albert Jimenez of relates the problem to statistics that showmillennials and generation Z spending an average of 2 to 6 hours in social media each day. 

It practically takes over their social life, replacing their smartphones as best friend. “If we cannot directly influence our children with values formation, we can meet them halfway in the internet and allow them to see that they have a better choice,” says Albert.

The Philippines is a Catholic nation, and with many Judeo-Christians who wants to spread love, many Filipino youth do not know where or who to connect with. This is how John15.Rocks can help.

As their tagline says, “Usap tayo,” John15.Rocks hopes to reach both parents and children and network them to organizations that offers counseling and support groups for those who have family problems. It extends to those who have issues with homosexuality and HIV, drugs and substance abuse, bullying, relationship problems, and those struggling with teenage parenting.

“Christians and charity groups should come together online to do something cohesive” Albert said. He also clarifies that this is not about religion - “It’s not religion, it’s a relationship with the one true God that everyone needs.” He said that if a person believes that there is a creator, help can start from there. “Our mandate is to love one another, as Jesus did,” he further added.

John15.Rocks online campaigns for free counseling (Counseling Referral Program), HIV/AIDS awareness, equipping parents online, and publishing a youth-inspired pictographic devotional, Daily Tinapay.

The name John15.Rocks was inspired by what Jesus said, “This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you” in John 15:12.
