What are Beta Glucans?

Beta-glucans are a variety of natural soluble dietary fiber occurring in foods which include grains (such as barley, oats, and corn bran) and certain mushrooms. The cell walls of Bakers yeast contain some of the richest concentrated sources of beta-glucans found. Our pure, natural beta-glucan is obtained from the cell walls of Bakers yeast.

Beta Glucan Research

There are numerous scientific research studies about beta-glucans, however, clinical trials only confirm a few uses it. These studies show that there is a possibility that beta glucans can: reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by lowering blood cholesterol levels.Many oat cereals have been shown to contain beta-glucans, which can help to lower cholesterol. Clinical trials have even revealed that the higher the concentration of beta-glucan content of the oat cereal (hot or cold), the greater the cholesterol lowering effect.

Beta Glucan - Immune System

Beta-glucans have also been shown to enhance the ability of the immune system to fight infection.This occurs because beta-glucans can activate the white blood cells called macrophages. The macrophages are produced by the bone marrow. They circulate in the blood engulfing and destroying foreign invaders such as bacteria and fungi.

Beta Glucan - Cancer

Some clinical trials have shown that beta-glucans can protect against cancer and the development of tumors. In one laboratory study, antibody medications were more effective in killing cancer cells when they were given in conjunction with beta-glucans. Obviously, this one study should is not conclusive and more investigation is needed.
