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 immunomodulator.
