In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study on cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy Bio- Strath® resulted in significantly improved physical activity, appetite and general health condition compared to those who received placebo who experienced deterioration in these points. Placebo participants generally lost weight during and after radiotherapy, however those who received Bio- Strath® were able to maintain or gain weight during and after radiotherapy, the similar occurred for haemoglobin; the use of Bio-Strath® preventing decrease in haemoglobin experienced significantly in the placebo group. By improving appetite and nutrition Bio-Strath® was thus able to combat the negative impact on physical activity, appetite, weight general health and haemoglobin experienced by cancer patients receiving radiotherapy treatment.

Strengthening endogenous defences the effect of a yeast supplement, Bio-Strath (Strath), on cell proliferation (cell reproduction)
Low gravity conditions are known to impact negatively on cell growth and activation; immune cells (Lymphocytes) subjected to these conditions were treated with Bio-Strath® and it was found that despite the strong inhibitory effects of low gravity immune cell activation occurred when these cells were treated with Bio-Strath®.
