Beta Glucan is a natural compound derived from the cell wall of Bakers yeast. Beta Glucan stimulates the immune system by activating the macrophage cells, powerful, immune cells that engulf foreign invaders and alert the body’s other defenses. By increasing the activity of the macrophage cells, the immune system is thereby made stronger and better able to fight off foreign invaders and health challenges.
A miracle for your immune system!
From humble beginnings comes a major breakthrough in preventive nutrition. Extracted from the cell walls of common bakers yeast and fungi, Beta Glucan is a unique compound that intensifies the effectiveness of the body’s immune system by activating specific white blood cells called macrophages and NK (natural killer) cells. Numerous scientific studies reveal that WGP Beta Glucan binds to the surface of both macrophages and NK cells, interacts with the surface molecules and triggers the activation processes. The results of this interaction are the highly activated macrophages circulating in our body and actively seeking foreign targets. Beta Glucan is able not only stimulate the cells of the immune system to optimally perform, it also increases their numbers. The optimal dose of Beta Glucan stimulates the turnover of precursor cells in bone marrow resulting in higher flow of new immunocytes into the bloodstream and various lymphoid organs throughout our body.
Macrophage cells are one of the principal cell types involved in natural immunity. They produce chemicals that signal other important immune cells to move to the site of foreign cell attack and help defend in the invasion. They also produce growth factors to aid the cells that repair injured tissues. These cells do play various important roles in the progression of acquired immune responses. Taking Beta Glucan improves all immune functions, including phagocytosis (ability to engulf foreign cells and particles) release of certain cytokines (intercellular hormones) IL-1, IL-6, GM-CSF, interferons, and the processing of antigens. Macrophages are involved in everyday detoxifying processes, intestinal flora maintenance, anti-infective and maintenance of overall health integrity.
