Beta-Glucan 500mg - 90 capsules

Beta-glucan: strong immune system - healthy body

A strong immune system is essential for a normal functioning of our body. As a biological defence system of higher organisms, it prevents tissue damages by pathogens by removing microorganisms and foreign substances, which entered the body. Furthermore, the immune system is able to destroy defective endogenous cells. The immune system is a complex network of different organs, cell types and molecules. Therefore, it is not surprising that the immune system - apart from the individual genetics - is the key to health and a long life.

What is beta-glucan?

Beta-glucan is a polysaccharide (multiple sugar), which occurs in the cell membranes of cereal, bacteria and mushrooms. It belongs to the indigestible fibres.

Beta-glucan and cholesterol

A number of clinical test have already been published about the positive effects of beta-glucan on the blood lipid levels as well. For example, medical professionals of the University of Minnesota (USA) gave men and women with increased cholesterol level 6 grams of beta-glucan daily. A control group, on the other hand, received glucose daily. After 6 weeks, the level of the total cholesterol in the beta-glucan group had decreased significantly, the level of the LDL cholesterol in particular.
(Source: Queenan et al. Concentrated oat beta-glucan, a fermentable fiber, lowers serum cholesterol in hypercholesterolemic adults in a randomized controlled trial, Nutr J. 2007 Mar 26; 6:6.)

The authorised committee of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) released a scientific statement in regard to health claims for beta-glucan and its effect on the cholesterol level, which states that a relation between the consumption of beta-glucan from oats and the reduction of the LDL level in the blood can be considered as proven.

The positive effect is achieved with a daily intake of 3g beta-glucans from oats, oat bran, barley or barley bran or from mixtures of these grains.
