Beta-Glucan Helps Support the Immune System
Beta-glucan is found in several forms from a variety of natural sources. All are polysaccharides (sugar molecules). Beta-1,3/1,6-D-Glucan is derived from baker’s yeast, or Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and mushrooms such as the maitake mushroom. This insoluble fiber has been studied for more than 30 years and repeatedly found to benefit immune system function.
Beta-glucan works differently than most other agents, those that are designed to stimulate the immune system and can actually overstimulate it. Overstimulation can be particularly detrimental to those suffering autoimmune diseases, allergies, or yeast infections. Beta-1,3/1,6-D-Glucan works to cause the immune system to function better without causing it to become overactive.
Studies Show Many Benefits of Beta-Glucan
Research studies have documented that beta-glucan works by stimulating the activity of macrophages. Macrophages are large cells that ingest and destroy foreign matter in the body like microorganisms or debris, including organisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites.
This activity offers the potential to support good health in a number of ways. Increased macrophage activity can significantly impact infections. In repeated studies, beta-glucans prevented or cleared up infections more quickly.
