Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is Beta Glucan, and What Does it Do?
Beta 1, 3-D glucan is a natural fiber molecule derived from Baker’s Yeast and enhances the immune system.

 2. Will Beta Glucan Cause Yeast Reactions or Allergies?

No. beta 1, 3-D Glucan is intensely purified from Baker’s Yeast and is free of the impurities that cause Yeast reactions, and allergies.

3. Why are Baker's Yeast Beta Glucans the Best?

A beta 1, 3-D glucan that is intensely purified from Baker’s Yeast. Such a beta 1, 3-D glucan enhances the immune system better than any other beta glucan studied by researchers, for the best price per capsule.

4. Who Should Take Beta Glucan?
Everyone can potentially benefit from taking an immune enhancer like beta 1, 3-D glucan in the correct dose. Especially those who want to maximize immune system function so that the immune system can attack and destroy bad pathogens, bacteria, viruses, infectious diseases, slow healing, radiation poison, etc..  

5. How Much Beta Glucan Should I Take? 
Beta Glucan 500 mg: For those who want the highest or maximum immune system response so it performs at peak level; and for those with a compromised or weakened immune system so it can defend the body the way it's supposed to!: For maximum immune response, take one 500mg capsule per 55 lbs. of body weight. For example, if you weigh around 150 lbs. you should take 3 capsules per day. All capsules should be taken first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. After taking your capsules, wait 30 minutes before eating or consuming other products. If you forget to take your capsules in the morning, you can absolutely take your Beta Glucan during the day, although the benefits may not be as significant. Order now.

Beta Glucan 100 mg: (for those who are considered healthy; normal ranges in blood tests, and you want to "boost" your immune system function): We recommend two 100 mg capsules per day, first thing in the morning on an empty stomach in order to "boost" a healthy person's immune system response. Order now.

BetaKids: Beta Glucan for Kids, 50 mg.
 Beta Kids (Delicious Chewables) Kids love them, and you can supercharge their health! Consists of 50 mg of beta glucan, with selenium and vitamin D3. We recommend 1 chewable for children aged 2-7 years old; and two chewables for children aged 8-11 years old. Take 30 minutes prior to eating and that's all there is to it! Order now.

6. How do I know if Beta Glucan is Working?

 Your immune system will start to respond immediately when you begin taking beta glucan. It takes 72 hours (or 3 full days) for the beta glucan to fully activate in your immune system. You won't necessarily "feel" anything, and that is the true beauty of this beta glucan. If your system is very toxic when you begin taking it, you may feel slightly sluggish for just a couple of days while it is activating in your immune system. Once, however, your immune system is fully activated in just 3 days, and as long as you continue to take the correct dosage, your immune system will be ready to fight everything that tries to attack your system!

7. Will Beta Glucan Interfere with Medications I take?

No. Beta 1, 3-D glucan has shown NO side effects when taken with prescription drugs.

8. How Exactly Does Beta Glucan Work in the Body?
Once you swallow your Beta Glucan capsules, the product it enters the stomach. Shortly after, it is taken up into a special region known as the Peyer’s Patches. In the Peyer’s Patches there are M cells, which transport the Beta Glucan to immune cells. These immune cells chew up the Beta Glucan and distribute it all over the body. The Beta Glucan fragments bind to Neutrophils, Macrophages, and Natural Killer cells. The binding of Beta Glucan to these cells is only possible with something known as the CR-3 Receptor. The CR-3 Receptor acts like a key unlocking a door. This binding of Beta Glucan with immune cells is what puts them on “high alert” priming them for action. In about 3 days after taking your Beta Glucan your immune system will be “fully activated.” See the 2 minute video on the home page so see how it works in the body.

 9. Can Beta Glucan Over-Stimulate the Immune System?
No. Beta 1, 3-D glucan will not over-stimulate the immune system, it only enhances the immune system. It is like loading the body’s immune guns with super-bullets ready to fire on infections. It is the infection that causes the immune system’s guns to fire (things like virus, bacteria, fungi, cancer, parasites etc.)

10. Can Beta Glucan Harm Someone with An AutoImmune Condition?

There are numerous autoimmune conditions and each one is unique. Most of the time the biggest concern is overstimulation of the immune system, which causes a person’s immune system to attack itself. However, by definition, Beta Glucan is an immunomodulator and never causes overstimulation. The studies are still very much unclear about the exact benefit a person with an autoimmune condition may receive by taking Beta Glucan, but there are no known side effects. If there is any concern whatsoever, please contact your medical professional before taking our product.

 11. Why is Beta 1, 3-D Glucan better than the others?

A. J. Lanigan’s Beta 1, 3-D Glucan is the most potent and highly purified form of beta glucan because it contains the largest amount of the Beta 1, 3-D Glucan molecules per capsule. Also, his Beta 1, 3-D Glucan is shown to have the greatest benefits on the immune system in test after test! The success of this Beta 1,3-D Glucan says it all!
