A Powerful Immune Booster

Beta Glucans comes in two main forms. One is derived from oats and barley and is termed Oat Beta Glucan. It has been proved to be moderately successful in reducing cholesterol levels and has received FDA approval in America and been approved by the European Food Safety Authority. It has since then been included in many breakfast cereals, and a wide variety of soft drinks.

Some of the supplement forms produced use the wheat or barley and exhibit the beta 1.3 and 1.4 linkages. However another much more powerful form of beta glucan exists, it is much more effective, and uses the preferred linkages of beta 1.3 and 1.6. Due to being unable to patent it Pharmaceutical companies are against manufacturing it, but it is the type being offered by IAS.

Beta Glucan is termed a supplement as it is regarded safe without any adverse side effects. One of its many uses is as a powerful immune enhancer, in fact in several trials it has been found to help combat a variety of syndromes including arthritis, Lupus, ME, fibromyalgia and sunburn. It can also help in both bacterial and viral infections such as the common cold, influenza, H1N1 Swine flu among many others.

Beta Glucan is also an effective anti-oxidant, counteracting the ravages caused by negatively charged molecules of oxygen. Free radicals cause damage and premature aging. It can also lower cholesterol – reducing LDL and increasing the HDL serum levels. Improvements have also been shown in type 2 diabetes, in lowering glucose and insulin levels.

The recommended preventative dosage is 400mg regularly and it is considered to be a product that should be taken by adult. Some trials have even shown that dog health and longevity can be significantly improved with Beta Glucan.

Beta Glucan first came into known existence decades ago as an ingredient in many types of skin creams. The belief was that it had excellent healing, anti-wrinkle, anti-cellulite and other age-reducing attributes would enhance the effectiveness of their products. Beta Glucan has also been used in general protective creams, ointments and powders for several decades.

At what age is it safe to start taking beta Glucan?
It is quite safe at any age, but as aging proper is said to begin at 29, one should at least be choosing to supplement immune levels with Beta Glucan by then. At 29 there is a marked increase in free radical activity, which can be effectively countered by Beta Glucan acting alone, or in combination with other antioxidants.
