Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan powder is derived from the walls of the Saccharomyces Cerevsiae (bakers yeast ) and is a potent immune stimulator, activating the macrophage (white blood cells) in the immune system. Studies have shown that Beta Glucan not only has a positive action on the macrophage (white blood cells), but on B- lymphocytes which are natural killer cells and suppressor (T cells). Macrophages (white blood cells) are produced by the bone marrow and are the cells that recognize, engulf and destroy any organisms and substances that are not natural or required by the body such as toxins, bacteria, viruses or mutated cells such as cancer cells.
Beta Glucan is a scientifically proven biological defense modifier (BDM) that nutritionally modulates the immune response and helps to intensity the immune system's ability to fight off infection by activating our white blood cells. It has been compared, and heralded superior, to Echinacea, which is an extremely well-known herb used for boosting immune response.
There are volumes of research on Beta Glucan. Our research has indicated that Beta Glucan has been shown to be effective in the following health conditions: Immunity Response - Cholesterol Reduction - Tumor Antagonist - Skin Rejuvenation - Digestion - Cancer Protection - Blood Sugar Stabilizer - Prevention of Coronary Heart Disease
Beta Glucan can dramatically strengthen your vital immune system and increase your disease resistance, which will not only give you a significant advantage against the never ending assault of bacteria and viruses but will also increase your resistance to many other health conditions. Beta Glucan has been shown to be safe for all individuals including those with an auto-immune disease as it does not over stimulate the immune system.
Maitake Mushrooms: The Maitake mushroom has been cultivated for centuries not only as a food but also as a dietary supplement for its many health benefits. Although it is less well-known than some other mushrooms, its immune boosting properties has researchers stating that the Maitake Mushroom is the most versatile and promising medicinal mushroom available. It is the most potent immuno-stimulant of all mushrooms. The compounds contained in Maitake mushrooms have proven to have the capacity to stimulate immune function and inhibit tumor growth. These compounds include polysaccharides (such as Beta-Glucan) and high molecular weight sugar polymers. Maitake has also been shown to improve the helper T-cells count in the body. Maitake has shown amazing "anticancer" effects with several cancers including lung, stomach, liver and leukemia.
