Beta glucans, also known as β-glucans, are a group of biologically active polysaccharides found in cereals, bacteria and fungi. Two main beta glucans are beta 1,3 and beta 1,6.
A 2014 review of several human clinical trials found that beta glucan supplementation is safe and effective for strengthening the immune system.1
Another study found that beta glucans exert their immunomodulatory effects by binding to surface receptors on immune cells to activate them which strengthens the immune system.2
Researchers in another study found beta glucans to be effective at enhancing immune response and function while reducing susceptibility of infection.3
Beta glucans act as an immunostimulating agent through activating macrophages.4
Also in a large 80 study 2019 review into the effects of beta glucans, researchers noted that they are strong activators of cellular immunity through macrophage activation. They also noted beta glucans help offer protection against infection.5
Beta glucans can help activate the immune system to boost immunity.
In addition to beta glucans, there are several other nutrients and herbs which have been shown to positively affect immune health and function. We combined them into one simple formula called Immune Support by Beyond Vita®.*
