What Are Beta Glucans and How Do They Work?
You can stop Viral Infections before they manifest with Beta-Glucans which are potent Antioxidants with a unique quality to help fight viruses. Beta-Glucans 1,3 and 1,6 help activate the immune system, alerting the body to help defend itself against viral and bacterial invaders. Many healthcare Practitioners use them to help boost patients’ immunity and fight disease
How do they work?
A little bit of science: Flu viruses “bind complement”, which means they stop the part of the immune system that responds to fight viruses, called “complement”, from working.
Beta-Glucans 1,3 & 1,6 actively and specifically inhibits this binding effect and so ensures activation of the immune system in response to the viral invader. Infection from viruses takse about 48 hours after the virus has entered the body. If the immune system is activated it will prevent the virus from replicating, so effectively the flu symptoms will not start.
They are also used as an effective treatment for the regulation of cholesterol
