Pharma Nord Bio-Glucan Plus
In addition to beta 1,3/1,6 glucans, naturally occurring complex sugars obtained from yeasts and fungi, the new formulation now includes vitamin D3 and selenium, which help to maintain a healthy immune system.
The type of glucans used in Bio-Glucan Plus should not be confused with the type of glucans (beta 1,3/1,4 glucans) obtained from cereals such as oats and wheat, which have a different molecular structure and different actions within the body. The main dietary benefit from beta 1,3/1,4 glucans is a reduction in blood cholesterol levels.
What does Bio-Glucan Plus do?
The active substances present in Bio-Glucan Plus act as a primer of innate immune system. As the name indicates, the innate immune system is inborn, and serves as the bodyâs first line of defence against infectious organisms such as bacteria and viruses. This is in contrast to acquired immunity, which involves the development of antibodies against foreign organisms, as the second line of defence.
Bio-Glucan Plus may particularly benefit individuals whose immune system has been weakened through lifestyle, stress, or aging. Bio Glucan Plus may help to maintain the bodyâs immune defence against infection by Candida species.
