Haelan Research Foundation: About Haelan

About Haelan


What is Haelan?

Haelan is a fermented soybean beverage that is manufactured from whole, non-genetically modified soybeans. The production involves a fermentation process that breaks down the beneficial soybean nutrients that can be absorbed into the blood and tissues. The primary benefit to the soybean nutrients helps with the repair process of DNA.

Haelan’s fermented soy beverages have evolved with over 20 years of research investigating the health benefits of fermented soy beverages. Initially this work involved input from nutritionists, fermentation experts, micro-biologists, oncologists, University Professors and thousands of patients in Chinese hospitals being treated for various conditions. Over the years the work expanded to include input from doctors, nutritionists, oncologists, pathologists, scientists, and researchers working at Hospitals, clinics, Universities and Medical Schools, in the United States and Europe.

Research undertaken and funded by the National Cancer Institute, the National Institute of Health, Haelan Products, Inc., Haelan Research Foundation, and other Public Foundations has greatly increased the understanding of the complex soy matrix and the potential health benefits that can be derived by the mechanisms of action and metabolic pathways improved by these soy compounds.

There have been more than 9,000 studies performed since 1991 on the whole soybean or components within soybeans. Studies are being conducted to use this knowledge to lengthen the life span and improve the quality of life of the cancer patients. In addition, one of the Foundation’s goals is to produce healthier people through better dietary regimens. It is anticipated to result in fewer illnesses, reduced surgical and medical procedures and less dependence on drugs and their adverse side effects. Foods are and can be the best medicine for a large section of the population.

Who is eligible to take Haelan? Who should not take the product?

Haelan fermented soy beverages are classified as “food” by the United States Food and Drug Administration. It has been used by both healthy and sick children and adults. People who are allergic to soy should take Haelan with precaution. Although, Haelan’s characteristics are “anti-allergy”, people who have prior allergies to soy should take precautions with Haelan’s products.

Most people are allergic to compounds and impurities that are found in unfermented soy products. Haelan’s processing removes most of the sugars, carbohydrates, and impurities that are the primary cause of these allergies. Common allergic reactions include itching or skin irritation that is usually found to be detoxification.

Benefits of Haelan

Studies have shown that Haelan 951 is beneficial for:

  • Liver function/support as well as removing carcinogens
  • Lung
  • Emphysema
  • Silicosis
  • Asbestosis
  • Anti-aging

The largest group of people benefiting from the use of Haelan’s fermented soy beverages are cancer patients. Studies show that 40-80% of advanced cancer patients die from cachexia, which is commonly referred to as “protein calorie malnutrition”.

A study with 318 cancer patients, 276 taking chemotherapy and the balance radiation treatments, shows that Haelan’s fermented soy beverages protect the cancer patient from the toxic side effects of the chemotherapy treatments. None of the people in the study had to have a transfusion, none of the participants had to discontinue a course of treatment. Side effects of the chemotherapy treatments were minimal.

An article was printed in the Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients in the November, 2004 issue titled “Soy and Cancer Survivors: Dietary Supplementation with Fermented Soy Nutraceutical, Haelan 951 in Patients Who Survived Terminal Cancers” by Vijaya Nair, MD, FAMS, MS. The cases presented in this article were submitted as part of the National Cancer Institute’s Best Case Series Program. The Best Case Series focuses on documented case reports of patients diagnosed with cancers who have shown significant improvements in their clinical conditions using complementary ad alternative supplements as mainstay treatment.

 Are there any side affects associated with taking Haelan?

There are no adverse side effects experienced by healthy or in non-transplanted recipient sick people. Liver detoxification in the form of diarrhea is often reported immediately after first consumption of Haelan but these symptoms disappear as the liver is detoxified. Worms, bugs and parasites are often excreted with fecal matter in the patient having these conditions.

Transplant Recipients:
Because Haelan’s fermented soy beverages increase immune function, a person who has had a liver, kidney, or other organ transplant may have problems with consumption of Haelan. Organ transplant recipients are normally on immune suppression drugs for several years following their organ transplant procedure to block rejection of the transplanted organ by the person’s immune system. A person having received an organ transplant and not receiving immune depressing drugs may consume Haelan but caution should be taken to make sure there is no adverse immune response to the donated organ.
