How Beta 1,3-D Glucan Works
Mechanism of Action in the Body
Purification exposes biologically active Beta Glucan layer of Baker’s yeast cell, removing mannoprotein layers, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids and cellular contents. What remains is a hollow microsphere of pure Beta 1,3 Glucan 2-4 microns in diameter.
Beta 1,3-D Glucan works as whole grain particles are biodistributed. Macrophages, a type of white blood that ingests (takes in) foreign material, containing Beta 1,3-D transport it throughout the immune system.
Breakdown of Whole Glucan Particles into soluble Beta Glucan.
Mechanism of Action
Two step process. Beta 1,3-D recruits Neutrophils to kill the invading pathogen. Step 1: Macrophages engulf the Beta 1,3-D Glucan via phagocytosis. Step 2: Beta 1,3-D Glucan fragments are secreted and behind to the complement receipt 3 on neutrophils, “priming” them. Neutrophils are white blood cells, specifically a form of granulocyte, filled with neutrally-staining granules, tiny sacs of enzymes that help the cell to kill and digest microorganisms it has engulfed by phagocytosis.
