What Is Beta-glucan?

Beta Right™ concentrated beta-1,3/1,6-glucan polysaccharide provides high potential support for healthy immune cell activity, natural defense, and cellular health of the breast and colon.*

Uses For Beta-1,3/1,6-Glucan

Advanced Immune and Cellular Support:

Absorbed as a whole glucan particle in the Peyers patch of the small intestine, beta-1,3/1,6-glucan then binds to specific receptor sites on the surface of macrophages, first-line defense cells in the body. The long-chained, highly-branched structure of the yeast-derived beta-1,3/1,6-glucan allows for optimal binding and activation of macrophages. Unbranched beta-1,3-glucan from oats does not have these same enhanced properties.

Activated macrophages help to promote a healthy immune response. Unlike other forms of beta-glucan, purified, whole particle beta-1,3/1,6-glucan does not contain mannoprotein and components from the yeast cell wall, allowing for a greater concentration of active ingredient and enhanced absorption. Beta-1,3/1,6-glucan may be especially supportive of immune function and cellular health associated with the breast and colon.*

Source for Beta-glucan

Beta-1,3/1,6-glucan (beta-1,6 branched beta-1,3-glucan) is a natural polysaccharide extracted from the cell wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, otherwise known as Baker’s yeast. Beta Right™ Beta-glucan is a registered trademark of Biopolymer Engineering, Inc
