Several types of beta-glucan-type polysaccharides are known, differing in molecular composition and, accordingly, in degree of activity. The most active substances are extracted from yeast, oat bran, barley and various grain crops, which are used most often in syrups form. The source is also often oats and wheat.
Extraction of component is a rather difficult chemical process. Raw materials require high-temperature conditioning to result in insoluble forms of substance. It is worth noting that particles are significantly different in size.
There is also a soluble form of Beta-Glucan. Both forms are actively used in the cosmetic industry. For example, insoluble part can be added to powder, and soluble – in creams, gels, lotions. Beta-glucan absolutely does not interfere with “work” of other elements of remedy. Moreover, it promotes faster absorption of cosmetics into skin.
Beta glucan is found in mushrooms, food yeast and in fiber of some cereals. Beta glucans are natural polysaccharides, consisting of glucose units. Beta glucan produced from fungi have the best immunomodulatory effects. The main mechanism of action of beta glucan is stimulation of immune system cells (macrophages, T cells, NK cells) by bringing them into an active state. This primary action has a positive effect on the whole organism.
Pregnant and lactating women need medical advice.
Dosing and Administration:
As a dietary supplement for adults, 1-3 tablets a day.
Beta glucan should be stored at room temperature.
