Beta-glucan is a partly naturally occurring polysaccharide;  more subtypes are differentiated depending on the number of carbon atoms connected to the molecule. Beta-glucan is a component of the cell walls of mushrooms, plants and bacteria. It exists in soluble and insoluble forms: insoluble beta-glucan has a much greater biological activity than soluble.


Animal cell

Beta-glucan can be found in the cell walls of plants, mushrooms and bacteria. The most common (and most effective) source of this is the simple yeast cell wall (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), but there is beta-glucan in the cereal grain (e.g. oat and barley), in sea grass, and in some mushrooms.

What is beta-glucan good for

For strengthening the body’s natural resilience by preventing and supplementing infectious diseases. By enhancing the natural reactivity of the immune system, it supports the efficacy of vaccines. Furthermore, it can also be used for supplementary treatment of allergic symptoms, for enhancing physical activity and vitality, and for the supplementary treatment of tumor diseases.
