Extracted from the cell walls of baker’s yeast and purified
Our beta glucan ingredient is Wellmune, which is extracted intact from the cell wall of baker’s yeast by our supplier Biothera Inc.
In order to be effective, the beta glucan molecule must bind to the glucan receptor sites on the macrophage cells in the intestinal tract and thereafter to neutrophil cells, which are vital components of the immune system. Only intact and purified beta glucan molecules are able to do this effectively.
Patented and extensively tested
Our supplier of the patented Wellmune ingredient is Biothera, who have conducted extensive clinical trials to prove the effectiveness of this natural ingredient in enhancing the immune system. Their animated explanation on the mechanism of beta glucans explains this. Click here to view video.
Biothera’s patent means that ONLY Wellmune reaches a proven level of purity and effectiveness. Any other 1-3, 1-6 beta glucans ingredient will be below the level of purity to be effective; otherwise it will infringe the patent.
