The beta-glucan content of yeast is very high, and through extraction methods, we have been able to standardize to an impressive 50% beta-glucan content! Beta-glucans help increase immunoglobulin A secretion, which helps protect our bodies by trapping pathogens before they can enter our bodies. In Immune Defense, we have utilized this property as the first line of defense.
Beta-glucans, by acting as prebiotics, also help facilitate the growth of probiotics in our gut. It has been shown that a healthy balance of probiotics in our gut can help us stay healthy. The makes our functional yeast extract a very capable immune defender!*
