What does Maximum Beta Glucan do for the immune system?
Beta Glucan is a powerful immune stimulator, activating the macrophages in the immune system. Studies have found that this product not only has a positive effect on the macrophages, but also on B lymphocytes, natural killer cells, and suppressor T cells. In addition to these important functions, Beta Glucan is an effective antioxidant and free radical scavenger.*
Macrophage cells play an essential role in the maintenance of the immune system. Macrophages are the cells that recognize, engulf and destroy any cells, organisms and substances that are not natural or required by the body (bacteria, viruses, fungi, dead or mutated cells, etc.). It also can produce a number of essential cytokines that are able to stimulate the immune system in general and boost bone marrow production. In addition to having a huge appetite for toxins, macrophages play a pivotal role in the initiation immune responses. Once a foreign body attacks the body, the macrophages become activated, and a chain reaction occurs that mobilizes the entire immune system.*
