Yeast Betaglucans / Baker’s yeast – In the last 20 years since the discovery of the immunological activity of Beta Glucans, more than 6000 publications have investigated its benefits and potential. A group of natural polysaccharides, Beta Glucans are found in the cell walls of various bacteria and fungi such as baker’s yeast, shiitake mushrooms, and cereal grains. Classed as immunomodulators, Beta-Glucans regulate and/or activate the immune system – showing an increased presence of phagocytes (cells that ingest or absorb foreign particles and bacteria) as well as increased oxidative bursts (used to kill bacteria or larger parasites). Importantly, Beta-Glucans make the Immune system smarter and more efficient, but never overactive – which prevents complications in those suffering from autoimmune illnesses.
