Normal, healthy levels of neutrophils usually only involve about 30-31% activity.
So, right now, almost 70% of your most abundant
immune cell population isn’t really doing anything important.
These cells are an essential part of your immune response.
Wouldn’t it be nice to put this huge army of trillions of cells to good use?
WAKE THEM UP!
Neutrophils are your #1 immune cell in numbers,
but it takes the worst invader, fungus, to really turn them on.
This is where Beta 1,3D Glucan derived from Baker’s Yeast fits into the big picture.
Beta 1,3D Glucan travels through the stomach and is delivered to immune cells through the
Immune Cells digest the Beta 1,3D Glucan and transport it throughout the body via the lymphatic system.
The digested Beta 1,3D Glucan binds
to specific receptor sites on immune cells.
Now they are alert and attack and destroy foreign invaders!
Neutrophils aren’t the only immune cells to benefit from Beta 1,3D Glucan. Macrophages, NK cells, and Eosinophils also have receptor sites for Beta 1,3D Glucan.
All of these cells together make up 75-80% of your total immune army!
Your cells have to travel all over the body to help fight foreign invaders, a process called chemotaxis. When Beta 1,3D Glucan is bound to immune cells they become alert and move with a sense of urgency. If there is a need for immune cells in any part of your body, Beta 1,3D Glucan will help them get where they are needed as fast as possible.
Now your immune cells are primed for destruction. Their fighting ability is improved in several ways, but we’ll focus on the two most important:
What if there isn’t a receptor site
for Beta 1,3D Glucan?
Glad you asked!
An immune cell doesn't need a receptor site to benefit from Beta 1,3D Glucan.
In fact, there are a lot of other cells and important parts
of the immune response Beta 1,3D Glucan helps too!
By activating your key innate immune cells with Beta 1,3D Glucan, the following parts of the immune system indirectly benefit:
Complement consists of a group of proteins found in serum and plasma. In combination with antibodies, complement causes the destruction of antigens, bacteria, and other unwelcome cells.
Antibodies attach to the one specific foreign invader they are created for. Once an antibody is attached, other immune cells can more easily target the invader and destroy it.
B cells play an important role in adaptive immunity. They are responsible for making antibodies that assist immune cells with targeting one specific type of pathogen.
Cytokines are chemicals used by immune cells to communicate with each other. Better communication = a more effective immune response
T cells are responsible for the control and assistance of immune cell functions. They regulate the production of memory cells, plasma, and the activation of macrophages.
What is Beta 1,3D Glucan?
Beta 1,3D Glucan is a natural extract of Baker’s yeast known for its ability to modulate the immune system for superior performance and balance. †
Backed by over 50 years of published research, it is unlike other immune supplements that simply stimulate or change the immune response in unnatural ways.
Why should I take Beta 1,3D Glucan?
The immune system is our first and only defense, and Transfer Point’s Beta 1,3D Glucan has not only been shown to maintain healthy immune cell population, but also increase the ability of immune cells. †
The result? A balanced immune response working at its best, without harmful stimulation or side effects.
How much Beta 1,3D Glucan should I take?
That depends on how much you want to support your immune response. †
Your immune system consists of trillions of cells working to keeping you pathogen-free, and about two thirds are phagocytes. Phagocytes are responsible for the front line defense of your immune response.
In the average person, only 31% of these phagocytes are active.
By taking Transfer Point's Beta Glucan you can significantly increase your amount of immune activity. All of those extra active cells add up to a stronger immune response, which keeps you healthier! †
How do other supplements compare to Transfer Point's Beta 1,3D Glucan?
Research proves that purity matters when it comes to biological activity.
Transfer Point, Inc. is the only company to offer a Beta glucan supplement with a minimum purity of 85% Beta 1,3D Glucan content.
Our Beta 1,3D Glucan has significantly outperformed all other immune supplements tested in numerous published research articles, including the Journal of Medicinal Foods, Open Glycoscience, and the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association. In addition to published research, our manufacturer supports ongoing biological activity comparisons through the University of Louisville to ensure we continue to provide the most effective immune supplement available.
To date, over 50 brands of immune supplements, including other brands of Beta glucan, have been tested. So far, none have even come close to unleashing immune ability as much as Transfer Point’s Beta 1,3D Glucan.
Does Beta 1,3D Glucan contain simple sugar or gluten?
No. Beta 1,3D Glucan is a long chain polysaccharide classified as a fiber; gluten is a protein and is not found in yeast. You can rest assured Glucan 300® is gluten-free, all-natural, non-GMO, and vegan-friendly.
Is Beta 1,3D Glucan safe? †
Yes, sourced from what is commonly known as Baker’s yeast, our Beta 1,3D Glucan has a G.R.A.S. rating from the FDA (there can be no known toxicity to achieve this rating). Extensive research from prestigious universities shows Beta 1,3D Glucan is well tolerated even at extremely high doses.
I am allergic to yeast, can I still take Beta 1,3D Glucan?
Yes, although derived from Baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), our Beta Glucan is purified to the most stringent quality standards yielding a final product containing over 85% Beta 1,3D Glucan complex and does not contain enough yeast proteins to cause an allergic reaction.
Highly Purified is Best
The purity of a Beta 1,3D Glucan product is a very important consideration. The purer it is, the better it works (a lot better). Transfer Point is the only company to offer the highest purity Beta 1,3D Glucan available. Published research from the University of Louisville includes several leading Beta Glucan's and their effects on immune function; Transfer Point’s Beta 1,3D Glucan at a dose of 2 mg/kg outperformed every other Beta Glucan at 32 mg/kg! †
