Natural support for your immune system

The human immune system comprises two parts; the acquired and the innate. 1,3/1,6 beta glucan contained in Bio-Glucan Plus acts as a primer for the innate immune system. This serves as the body’s first line of defence against infectious organisms, while the acquired immunity develops antibodies through immunisation or infection, which is the body's second line of defence. 1,3/1,6 beta glucan provides a stimulus to activate cells of the innate immune system against infectious organisms.

Developed from yeast, Yestimun is a superior source of 1,3/1,6 beta glucan. Bio-Glucan Plus contains Yestimun which provides 85% of purity. The body can recognise the glucan more effectively when it is a higher degree of purification. Glucans from brewer's yeast are obtained from cereals such as oats and wheat. They have a different molecular structure (1,3/1,4 beta glucan) and different actions within the body.

We recommend 2-4 tablets per day with food, or as directed by a physician.

Our Beta Glucan supplement is also suitable for vegetarians.

Studies using 1,3/1,6 beta glucan supplement have shown no significant adverse effects.

Relative to the food we eat, the size of individual nutrients are actually incredibly small. As a result, we need to use units other than grammes (g) to describe them. Here's what the common units for nutrients are:

Grammes (G)- often used to describe nutritional powders. Most teaspoons of powder weigh approximately 5g.

Milligrams (Mg)- 1000mg is equal to 1g

Micrograms (Mcg or μg)- 1000μg is equal to 1mg

International Units (IU)- Slightly more complex than milligrams (mg) and micrograms (μg), International Units measure differently from nutrient to nutrient. The most common nutrients that are likely to be measured in IU are vitamins D, E and A.

  • Vitamin D: 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.025 μg of D2 or D3
  • Vitamin A: 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.3 mcg retinol
  • Beta-carotene (provitamin A): 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.6 μg of beta carotene
  • Vitamin E: 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.67 mg d-alpha-tocopherol

Lloyd - 15th December 2014:

I found i used to get colds and flu all the time so thought i would give beta glucans a go. Since ive started using them i never get ill and if i do it has been a slight sore throat for a day at most. They have helped me out a lot. Great product and would recommend them to anyone who wants to strengthen their immune system.

Gregg Berlandi - 3rd September 2013:

I went through a stage when my son first started nursery where he seemed to bring home a new mutant strain of virus every day, my wife and I were literally ill for a few months straight; however, since starting the glucans I've not had more than a bit of a sore throat, and even that passed quickly. I usually get at least one bad chest infection in the winter so I'm keen to see how it works then.

Graham Yeomans - 29th April 2013:

I started taking Bio-Glucan to boost my natural defences against viruses etc. Since taking I can definitely say that I have had fewer colds and those that I have had appear to have been far less severe. I did take a break from the tablets for a month or so and fell foul of two heavy colds! Is it any surprise that I started taking them again and have continued ever since?

J Hird, Gateshead. - 24th August 2011:

My dad needed a serious operation and I was worried about him coming down with a secondary infection.

My dad started taking Bio-Glucan about a month before the operation to prevent infection and aid recovery by keeping his immune system topped up.

The operation was about 6 hours long, but he was out of hospital within a week and all of the staff were amazed at the speed of his recovery.
