What "sugar" can be called "life guard"?

In the 1940s, Dr. Pillemer * discovered and reported that a substance in the cell wall of yeast has immune-boosting properties. Further work by Dr Diluzio of the University of Tulum has since revealed that the immune-boosting substance in the yeast cell wall is a polysaccharide called β-glucan.

Yeast beta-glucan, also known as dextran. Is a polysaccharide with a high molecular weight and bioactivity of β-1,3/-1,6 binding to β-glucan *. So yeast β-glucan is not a sugar, but a special active substance extracted from the natural yeast cell wall.

2. What are the functions of β-glucan?


Function of immune support

Yeast β-glucans taken orally, unlike other food components, are not digested by the stomach and intestine, but are absorbed directly through the small intestine. The macrophages on the mucus cells of the small intestine, through the β-glucan receptor, absorb β-glucan, will be activated, thereby playing a role in protecting and strengthening the immune system. [1]

At the same time, it sends signals to other immune cells, such as B and T cells, to converge on the site of infection and do their immune work.


Scavenging free radicals in the body [2]

β-glucan can effectively remove free radicals in the body, so as to protect macrophages from free radical attack after exposure to radiation, so that these macrophages continue to function normally.


Regulate blood lipid and reduce cholesterol [3]

β-1, 3-D-glucan can absorb bile acids and promote the excretion of bile acids, promote the transformation of cholesterol into bile acids, and maintain the inherent normal metabolism of cholesterol.

The scientists also found that the main effect of β-glucan is to significantly reduce plasma total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, ultimately achieving the goal of regulating blood lipids.


Intestinal cleansing effect [4]

β-glucan has a certain viscosity and is difficult to be digested in human digestive organs, so it can be used as dietary fiber. It CAN PROMOTE INTESTINAL PERISTALsis, absorb harmful substances in the intestine, promote the activation of useful bacteria in the intestine, thereby improving constipation caused by insufficient intake of food fiber, dyspEPsia caused by gastrointestinal weakness.


Regulate blood glucose [5]

β-glucan can protect and repair pancreatic islet β-cells, improve the sensitivity of peripheral tissues to insulin, reduce the requirement for insulin, promote glucose return to normal, and has obvious inhibitory and preventive effects on diabetes.

The high viscosity and gelling properties of β-glucan increase the barrier effect of gastric mucosa and inhibit glucose metabolism. At the same time, yeast β-glucan can stimulate the related mildew substances in the spleen, regulate insulin secretion, and achieve the effect of balancing blood glucose.


Protect skin

Yeast β-glucan has a driving effect on Langerhan's macrophages in the skin, which can play the function of skin defense and repair, improve the synthesis ability of collagen and elastin in the dermis, slow down the generation of skin wrinkles, and show healthy and beautiful skin.

3. How to choose good β-glucan?

So much about the role of yeast glucan, so how to choose a good yeast β-glucan? First of all, to ensure the safety of the source, and second, to extract high content, strong activity of β-glucan, so that can do twice the result!

Beta-glucan from yeast is particularly recommended here because it is inherently safe and has been described as a "green and natural" ingredient. Secondly, compared with oat, seaweed polysaccharide, ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide, the content of β-glucan in yeast *, *, the most active β-glucan exists in the third and fourth layer of yeast cell wall. [6]

Thus it can be seen that yeast β-glucan is not the sugar we often mention, but an active substance with many functions for our body, because its action involves many organs and cells of the body.

Therefore, the safe, high activity of yeast β-yeast glucan, is worthy of the upgraded version of the guardian of our life health guards, escort for our body!
