Before your immune system can fight infections and germs, it has to receive signals to activate and get to work. To do that, your body needs certain compounds to give that order. That's where NOW Beta-1,3/1,6-D-Glucan comes in: helping to get more of your white blood cells up and going when they're needed. It's a type of carbohydrate derived from Bakers' Yeast, not to be confused with other types of Beta-Glucans that aren't immune stimulating.
This very specific compound is, in some respects, preferable over some prescription immune stimulators, which can sometimes over-stimulate the immune system. In addition to being a safe alternative, it may also help lower bad cholesterol levels, help the body heal wounds, and aid the prevention of infections. To further boost the immune system, this supplement also provides maitake mushroom extract, long valued for its immune boosting qualities. Help your immune system do its job with NOW Beta-1,3/1,6-D-Glucan.
