Beta Glucan optimises immune system response to disease and infection
Beta Glucan - Help optimise your immune system response to disease and infection
Benefits of Beta Glucan
- Promotes healthy immune cell activity
- Enhances immune system response to disease and infection
- Addition of Maitake Mushrooms
- Naturally sourced
Beta-1,3/1,6-D-Glucan from the cell walls of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, also known as baker’s yeast, helps optimise your immune system's response to disease and infection, helps suppress damaging inflammatory cytokines and enhances macrophages and killer cell function.
With age, the immune system function begins to decline - with a weakened immune system we are at a greater risk of illness and disease. Beta Glucan supplements are immunomodulators which trigger a cascade of events that help regulate immune system function, helping it work more efficiently. However, the body does not manufacture Beta Glucan naturally, the only way to acquire it is through outside sources such as supplementation or food.
Studies demonstrate that Beta Glucan, especially the beta 1,3/1,6 glucans, can positively affect and optimise immune system response to disease and infection. Yeast-derived Beta Glucan interacts with certain immune system cells, including those found in the intestinal tract (GALT), which play a vital role in immune system health. This Beta Glucan supplement has an added blend of Maitake Mushrooms for enhanced support.
This supplement should be taken daily, especially in autumn and winter, when the immune system is weaker.
As a dietary supplement, adults take one capsule daily.
Take 30 minutes before a meal with a glass of water or, for best results, as directed by a healthcare professional.
It can take up to five days for this supplement to begin to function for optimal immune protection - daily supplementation is highly recommended.
For additional boost and support, up to six tablets daily can be taken for a short-term only.
Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct light.
Do not exceed the recommended daily dose.
Keep out of reach of young children.
Children, pregnant women, and women who are breastfeeding should consult their doctor before use.
Nutritional supplements should not replace a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
Check with simultaneous intake of medicines with your physician or healthcare professional. No long-term use without professional advice.
