Beta Glucan supplements is Pharma Nord's Bio-Glucan Plus containing beta 1,3/1,6 glucans as well as SelenoPrecise (a patented, highly absorbable, organic selenium yeast) and vitamin D3, both of which contribute to normal function of the immune system. Bio Glucan Plus contains Yestimun beta glucans with a high degree of purity (85%). This source has been chosen because of the greater purity, the more effectively the glucans are recognised by the body. Bio Glucan Plus may particularly benefit individuals whose immune system has been weakened through lifestyle, stress or ageing.
Beta 1,3/1,6 glucans contained in Bio-Glucan Plus act as a primer of innate immune system. 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.
In addition, Vitamin D and Selenium are two nutrients that are known to play an important role in supporting immune function.
The formulation of Bio-Glucan Plus contains Yestimun, a superior source of beta 1,3/1,6 glucans, with a dry matter content >85% and alpha-D-mannan content of<2%. The type of glucans used in Bio-Glucan Plus 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.
