Beta-glucan is a fiber-type complex sugar (polysaccharide) derived from the cell wall of baker’s yeast, oat and barley fiber, and many medicinal mushrooms, such as maitake. Previously, beta glucan was very expensive to manufacture. Recent developments in manufacturing have made this product affordable.
Beta Glucan supports the immune system
Beta Glucan is the primary treatment for cancer in Asia and has over 3,000 published studies and over 1,800 Med Line references.

It is well established that glucans enhance the efficacy of anti-cancer and anti-infections immuno therapy, both in clinical and experimental conditions. However, the considerable variations among batches of natural glucan in molecular weight, branching frequency as well as linkage to chitins and mannoproteins make the clinical applications of natural glucan questionable.

Natural Immunomodulators and their Stimulation of Immune Reaction: True or False?
VACLAV VETVICKA and JANA VETVICKOVA (Department of Pathology, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY, U.S.A)
“The purpose of the present study was to directly compare eleven most commonly used immunomodulators…..we found that most
the immunomodulators tested have limited, if any, effects, with glucan being consistently the most active molecule strongly stimulating every reaction evaluated. These data were also confirmed using a Lewis lung cancer model, where only glucan and resveratrol lowered the number of metastases
