What is Bio-Glucan Plus™?

The new formulation now includes Vitamin D3 and Selenium in addition to beta 1,3/1,6 glucans, naturally occurring complex sugars obtained from yeasts and fungi. Supplementation with Bio-Glucan Plus™ helps to maintain a healthy immune system. 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. The main dietary benefit from beta 1,3/1,4 glucans is a reduction in blood cholesterol levels.

What does Bio-Glucan Plus™ do?

The beta 1,3/1,6 glucans contained in Bio-Glucan Plus™ act as a primer of 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.

In addition, Vitamin D and Selenium are two nutrients that are known to play an important role in supporting immune function.

Bio-Glucan Plus™ may particularly benefit individuals whose immune system has been weakened through lifestyle, stress, or aging. Beta 1,3/1,6 glucans help to maintain the body’s immune defence against infection by Candida species.

How much Bio-Glucan Plus™ should you take?

The recommended intake is 2-4 tablets per day.

Are there adverse effects from taking Bio-Glucan Plus™?

No significant adverse effects have been reported from clinical trial studies using beta 1,3/1,6 glucans.
