Immune Support with Beta-1,3/1,6-D-Glucan and Maitake Mushrooms Overview
Body First’s Immune Support is a blend of two immune-boosting, mushroom-based extracts that may activate & strengthen the immune system and improve cholesterol levels. *
Beta-1,3/1,6-D-Glucan (Beta-Glucan) is a polysaccharide extracted from the cell wall of baker’s yeast. Research supports that Beta-Glucans are able to prime the immune system by stimulating activity within white blood cell macrophages. The yeast derived Beta-Glucan used by Body First has been shown to be the most stimulating strain of Beta-Glucan and studies support its micronutrient constituents to modulate and improve immune response. In this manner, you can think of Beta-Glucan as an “immune system primer,” improving your body’s ability to fight off the many pathogens it encounters each day. *
Additionally, studies have verified that various Beta-Glucan constituents are found in the lymphatic system after digestion, supporting that the body successfully utilizes them. Maitake mushroom extract is a natural source of Beta-Glucan and contains micronutrients that work synergistically in the absorption and utilization of Beta-1,3/1,6-D-Glucan. Both Beta-Glucan and maitake mushroom supplements have been shown to stimulate the immune system and represent a powerful, all-natural herbal duo for optimal health and wellness. *

Immune Support with Beta-1,3/1,6-D-Glucan and Maitake Mushrooms Description from Body First
Our Beta-1,3/1,6-D-Glucan (Beta-Glucan) is a bioactive carbohydrate derived from the cell wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, commonly known as Baker's yeast. Scientific studies have shown that yeast-derived Beta-Glucan can interact with certain immune cells, including those present in the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT). The GALT exists in the intestinal tract and is known to play a critical role in healthy immune system function. Our Beta-Glucan is blended with Maitake Mushrooms for complementary support.
