Overview

Hyperimmune egg is an egg from a hen that has been vaccinated against certain infectious diseases. The hen makes antibodies against these diseases. These antibodies pass into the hen's eggs. People remove the antibodies from the egg yolks and use them as medicine.

Hyperimmune egg is used for cystic fibrosis, a digestive tract infection that can lead to ulcers (Helicobacter pylori or H. pylori), diarrhea caused by rotavirus, and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

How does it work ?

Antibodies contained in hyperimmune egg are thought to stimulate the immune system and help the body fight disease.
