What is Beta Glucan?
Beta glucan is a complex carbohydrate of
glucose, a simple sugar. It can be derived from
several sources, including yeast, bacteria,
fungi, and cereals such as oats, barley, and
rye. Each type of beta glucan has a unique
structure in which glucose is linked together in
different ways, giving them distinctive physical
properties. For example, yeast beta glucan is
branched with beta 1,6 and beta 1,3 glucans,
enhancing its ability to bind and stimulate
macrophages. The chemical structure of beta 1,3
glucan is dependent on the source. Based on
extensive published research, it is widely
accepted that the beta 1,3 glucan derived from
baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
is the most potent anti-infective beta glucan
