Supports Digestive Tract Health
Research shows that beta glucan supports healthy gut bacteria in various ways. For example, it acts as a prebiotic. This means that it serves as food for the good bacteria in our gut. The bacteria like to eat it so much, in fact, that beta glucan promotes the growth of more beneficial bacteria like lactobacillus and bifidobacteria. This is a win-win since these gut bacteria help optimize digestion, but they also produce short chain fatty acids which help with healthy immune function. Another way beta glucan supports digestive tract health is by protecting gut barrier integrity and function.
Benefits of Beta 1,3 Glucan
Some of the health benefits of beta 1,3-glucan substantiated by scientific research are:
⦁ Supports a healthy immune system and optimal immune function
⦁ Boosts key immune cells (such as macrophages, dendritic cells, and neutrophils)
⦁ Protects against oxidative stress
⦁ Supports respiratory tract health
⦁ Promotes a healthy inflammatory response
⦁ Supports digestive tract health
⦁ Protects gut barrier integrity and function
⦁ Promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria (such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria)
SuperPure® Beta 1,3 Glucan
Beta 1,3-glucan is most commonly extracted from yeast, often with harsh chemicals, and is usually not nearly concentrated enough. SuperPure Beta 1,3-Glucan, on the other hand, is a natural beta 1,3-glucan derived exclusively from Euglena gracilis algae. This water-extracted form is incredibly pure, highly concentrated to 500 mg beta 1,3 glucan per capsule, easily bioavailable to your immune cells, and more economical to boot.
