What is Bio-Glucan Plus?
Bio-Glucan Plus contains Yestimun® beta glucans with a high purity of 85%. This source has been chosen because the greater the purification, the more effectively glucans are recognised by the body. Two tablets of Bio-Glucan Plus per day provide 250 mg of beta glucan extract, 50 mcg SelenoPrecise® and 10 µg vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol).
Supplementation with Bio-Glucan Plus helps to maintain a healthy immune system.
The type of glucan used in Bio-Glucan Plus should not be confused with the type of glucans obtained from cereals such as oats and wheat. They are beta 1,3/1,4 glucans, which have a different molecular structure and different actions within the body.
What does Bio-Glucan Plus do?
The beta 1,3/1,6 glucans contained in Bio-Glucan Plus 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 active neutrophils, macrophages and natural killer (NK) cells of the innate immune system against infectious organisms.
Bio-Glucan Plus may particularly benefit individuals whose immune system has been weakened through lifestyle, stress or ageing. Beta 1,3/1,6 glucans help maintain the body's immune defence against infection by Candida species.
Supplementation with Bio-Glucan Plus may help to maintain a healthy immune system, the body’s natural defence against infectious bacteria and viruses. Bio-Glucan Plus contains naturally occurring beta 1,3/1,6 glucans, SelenoPrecise®, a highly absorbable form of organic selenium, and vitamin D3, which all play an important role in supporting immune function. Beta 1,3/1,6 glucans act as a primer of the innate immune system, the body’s first line of defence against infectious organisms.
