Biobran MGN-3 was originally developed in 1992 by the Japanese research director of Daiwa Pharmaceutical Company. The director was able to develop a new complex composed of polysaccharides, mainly arabinoxylan, which can help strengthen the body's immune response. The product was developed and perfected by 3 individuals, namely Maeda, Ghoneum and Ninomiya. Their initials were used as the basis for the name MGN. Daiwa Pharmaceuticals then marketed it under the name Biobran.

Biobran MGN-3 is composed of molecules of polysaccharides, which are complex carbohydrates. These polysaccharides have been extensively studied for their ability to enhance the body's immune system. Biobran MGN-3 is also rich in fiber, which can aid in digestion and help prevent long-term diseases.
