Beta-mannan is not a vitamin. It's a dietary food supplement. You can't buy it in stores. You have to order it from the Alotek Supplement Company or one of their distributors.

It's from this doctor and he claims it cures HPV.

A dietary supplement offered by a specific website. I notice that the HPV claims that have been made about it being a cure have been removed from the website, probably following the FDA warning letter that is posted over on CaseWatch.

Right. It's probably crap, but let me tell you, first I'm trying this mushroom thing. If that doesn't work, im taking Beta Mannan.

Re: where can i buy a vitamin beta-mannan?

I keep reading about trials based on using extracts of mushrooms. I'd like to know how that works out since mushrooms have been used for medicinal purposes for centuries.

I know I've read that miatake is being focused on but I know there were others and I can't find the references.

I think science is finding out that nature has provided us with some good immune system boosting foods!!!

I'm taking coriolus versicolor . . . they did this study that was small on women with CIN 1 lesions and HR-HPV. The amazing part I thought was that only 1/12 in the "control group" tested HPV negative in one year while 9/10 in the mushroom group tested negative in a year.

From everything I've read about AIS, it seems like HPV clearance is majorly good sign in preventing it from coming back, so I'm taking it!

Re: where can i buy a vitamin beta-mannan?

I just did a little digging to see what this supplement can do for high grade changes. There's one study that looked at its effects after a year on women who had conizations done for their HSIL. The group that took Coriolus Versicolor and the control group showed similar rates of virus clearance, emphasizing how good these cone procedures are at eliminating the virus. However, the study does say that people that are still HPV positive after surgery could benefit from the supplement. I will be trying it myself! Anything to tip the scale...

Re: where can i buy a vitamin beta-mannan?

I just wonder if the surgery clears the virus out of people who had AIS as well as it does for everyone else? I've never seen any statistics on that.

I'll check to see what my health food store carries for this stuff. It is SO expensive!!!

If you want to stretch your bottles just a tad, I think you only need to take 5 pills a day. The studies showed that 3g were used, so 600mg x 5 = 3000mg. Maybe the bottle will last a couple of days longer!

Re: where can i buy a vitamin beta-mannan?

Eliz -- the gyn/onc at Yale told me that the surgery (cone) usually helps the body build up an immunity to the HPV, and we were specifically talking adenocarcinoma, to which AIS is a precursor....so from what I've been told, that's a yes!

What I'm wondering is if the surgery helps you build an immunity to the HPV, does that mean your entire body is now immune to it, so you are no longer vulnerable to developing HPV related problems elsewhere??

Re: where can i buy a vitamin beta-mannan?

Hmmm, I would think you would then be immune across your entire body, because wouldn't the antibodies be in your bloodstream? Of course, I think it also depends on if your body recognizes there's a problem in that specific spot. One of my gyn/oncs explained that one of the reasons our bodies don't fight off hpv right off the bat is that the virus is good at hiding and our immune system doesn't even notice that something is wrong; I think that has a lot to do with the fact that there isn't a lot of blood flow through the cervix. Anyway, once surgery alerts your body that there is a problem, it then creates the antibodies to hpv. However, I wonder if -- and let's say you have oral hpv -- even if you have the antibodies to that particular strain, does your body even notice that it's there??? Not sure how that would work.
