Bio Glucan Plus - Immune Support
Supplementation with Bio-Glucan helps to maintain a healthy Immune System. Bio-Glucan contains beta 1,3 / 1,6 Glucans, naturally occuring complex sugars obtained from yeasts and funghi.
The type of Glucans used in Bio-Glucan should not be confused with the type of Glucans (beta 1,3 / 1,4 Glucans) obtained from cereals such as Oats and Wheat, which have a different molecular structure and different actions within the body.
The beta 1,3 / 1,6 Glucans contained in Bio-Glucan act as a primer of the innate Immune system. As the name indicates, the innate Immune system is inborn and serves as the body's first line of defence against infectious organisms.
This is in contrast to acquired Immunity which involves the development of antibodies against foreign organisms, as the second line of defence. Beta 1,3 / 1,6 glucans provide a stimulus to activate neutrophils, macrophages, and natural killer (NK) cells of the innate immune system against infectious organisms.
No significant adverse effects have been reported from clinical trial studies using beta 1,3 / 1,6 Glucans
Bio-Glucan may particularly benefit individuals whose Immune system has been weakened through lifestyle, stress or aging. Beta 1,3 / 1,6 Glucans also help to maintain the body's Immune defence against infection by Candida species.
Bio-Glucan is suitable for Vegetarians.
Each Capsule provides:
250mg of Wellmune WGP (equivalent to 200mg beta 1,3/1,6 Glucans) from baker's yeast, the most active and best documented source of beta 1,3/1,6 Glucans
