COLDS, FLU AND INFECTION SUPPORT
Mushrooms are one of the most important therapeutic arsenals of our natural world. Each species contain hundreds of active molecules such as polysaccharides, including beta (β) glucans.
These β-glucans are powerful immunomodulators and alert our body to activate its defence against bacterial and viral invaders.
One capsule contains 250mg of pure extraction β-glucans 1,3 & 1,6, are gluten free and contains NO live yeast to prevent allergic reactions.
Βeta (β) glucans are known as “biological response modifiers” because they can activate an immune response, enabling the body’s defense system to overwhelm and attack invading pathogens.
How do β glucans activate our immune system in the intestine?
When taken orally β glucans are captured by specialised cells called Peyer patches, in our lymphatic tissue, they cover the mucous membrane in our intestine that monitor bacterial activity. Studies have shown these cells facilitate the transport of β glucans towards the lymph nodes, spleen and bone marrow. Here they interact with macrophages (immune cells) to activate our immune system.
