Beta Glucan (Yeast and Oat)

  • β-Glucans belong to a group of physiologically active compounds called “biological response modifiers.
  • Beta glucans act as immunomodulator agents, meaning they trigger a cascade of events that help regulate the immune system, making it more efficient.
  • Beta-glucan is a fiber-type complex sugar (polysaccharide) derived from the cell wall of bakers yeast, oat. In their natural states, yeast contain a mixture of beta-1,3-glucan and beta-1,6-glucan. Oats contain a mixture of beta-1,3-glucan and beta-1,4-glucan.
  • Beta-1,3-glucan, in particular, is very effective at activating white blood cells known as macrophages and neutrophils. These cells provide one of the immune systems first lines of defense against foreign invaders.
