Immune System Supplements: Beta Glucan

Ben’s Beta Glucan, one of the leading immune system supplements, contains 500mg of beta glucan.

Beta Glucan helps your body maintain a healthy immune system, lowers your chance of becoming sick, fights flu, and speeds up recovery after injury.

The Importance of a Strong Immune System

Your immune system is designed to protect your body from viruses, bacteria, toxins, and fungi. It is a critical part of your health and wellbeing because it is essential for survival. 

Without a strong immune, you are vulnerable to illness and disease. Therefore, finding ways to boost your immunity is key.

Ben’s New and Improved Beta Glucan

Beta Glucan is an immune support supplement designed to boost your immunity to viral, fungal, and bacterial infections. 

immune system supplements

It is an effective formulation for warding off common colds and winter flu as well as reducing your recovery time from illness. 

Studies show Beta Glucan can speed up the healing of wounds, burns, or post-surgery recovery. Some studies suggest an increase in immunity of approximately 400%

Additionally, Beta Glucan is anti-carcinogenic and studies show that it “significantly deceased cancer cells viability, while for the normal cells it was non-toxic”.

Further, there are over 6000 studies that show that beta glucan “exhibits immunostimulating properties, including antibacterial and anti-tumor activities.”

Ben’s New Beta Glucan contains a more potent and bioavailable form of Beta Glucan including 500mg per capsule. Ben’s Beta Glucan contains a potent and bioavailable form of Beta Glucan extracted from “Saccharomyces Cerevisiae,” grown on Non-GMO grape skins. It is standardized to 70% Beta Glucan D1-3 & D3-6, ensuring it has maximal bioavailability and potency. Grown and tested in the USA, our Beta Glucan helps to enhance immune function and safeguard against cold and flu.

What does the research say about Beta Glucan?

So, what are the benefits of beta glucan? Clinically formulated, Beta Glucan can help your body to improve your immune system health and resist bacteria, fungal and viral infection.  

Read 4 health benefits, supported by science and clincal studies, of beta glucan and how it supports your immune system health and protects you from infection.

1) Boost Your Immune System

As we discussed above, your immune system is vital for your survival. Significant evidence highlights the powerful immunity boosting properties of beta glucan.

Human trials show that beta glucan can improve quality of life and survival when given in combination with cancer treatment. One study found that beta glucan appears to be effective at enhancing immune function and reducing susceptibility to infection and cancer. 

2) Fights Off Flu

One double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study of 162 participants looked at the effects of a daily dose of beta glucan.

They found that those taking beta glucan had lower infection rates, a reduction in symptoms and faster recovery from influenza viruses, compared to the placebo group.

3) Faster Recovery Times & Wound Healing

Evidence shows that beta glucan supplements can lead to a speedy recovery. One study found that Beta Glucan can speed up recovery after an injury, wound or burn and even post surgery or when receiving chemotherapy.

4) Lowers Bad Cholesterol

One 2011 study examined the cholesterol-lowering effects of oat beta glucan. They found that eating oats daily with at least 3g of beta glucan reduced bad cholesterol (LDL) levels between five and ten percent.

Elevated cholesterol levels are major risk factors for cardiovascular disease. So, by reducing your cholesterol levels, beta glucan may also reduce your chances of developing heart disease.

How does Beta Glucan work?

It improves your immune response by activating receptors in intestinal lymph nodes, which in turn heightens immune surveillance, allowing white blood cells and other key disease-fighting immune cells to travel around the body quickly to deal with any trouble.

Beta glucan is a soluble fiber. This means that your body does not digest it, but it slows down the time it takes food to travel in the intestines. Therefore, food digestion takes longer. Slower digestion means that your body doesn’t absorb sugar or carbohydrates as fast, which therefore reduces the chance of your blood sugar spiking and controls your blood glucose levels.

Beta glucan also works to prevent your body from absorbing cholesterol from food in your stomach and intestines, thus lowering your cholesterol levels.

Is it safe to take?

This natural immunity booster supplement is 100% drug-free, 100% natural, and 100% side-effect-free. When it comes to the ingredients in our products, we rigorously test them to ensure they meet the American pharmacological standards and the American herbal products association standards. 

Our manufacturing facilities are also all US-based, and FDA monitored. We use the United States pharmacopeial test 1119 (near-infrared spectrography), a third-party laboratory, to test all our finished products. This ensures that the immune health supplement matches the label and is safe, pure, and high-quality.

Recommended Dosage 

The recommended daily dosage is 1 capsule per day with a meal. If you are prone to infections, colds or flu then you can increase this dosage two per day (1 capsule with breakfast and 1 capsule with dinner). If you suffer from serious disease or cancer you should take up to 4 per day with food.

immune system supplements review

It is important to note that Ben’s Beta Glucan has the following:

  • 100% natural ingredients.

  • Clinically significant dosages.

  • Ingredients that are shown to work in peer-reviewed, double-blind studies.

  • Chelated ingredients for better absorption and effectiveness.

While many immune system supplements have scientifically backed natural ingredients, the vast majority are usually in low and ineffective dosages, without chelating ingredients for better absorption and bioavailability.

A therapeutic dose is the amount of the ingredient you need to have a clinical effect proven by scientific studies. It’s also vital that the immune booster you take contains natural nutrients. You do not want it to have any synthetic ingredients or genetically modified organisms.

This dietary supplement is extracted from the highest quality, natural ingredients using rigorous methods to optimize dosage and bioavailability. Bioavailability refers to the extent to which the supplement makes its way to the body’s tissues rather than being flushed out. As a result, the body efficiently absorbs our Beta Glucan.

To ensure the efficacy, potency, and freshness of Beta Glucan, we pick fresh herbs at the season’s peak. Then, we qualify each herb under specific quality guidelines under the CGMP and FDA. This 3rd party qualification process ensures every herb is 100% quality tested before being added to our immunity booster supplement, Beta Glucan.

After this testing, we make sure that the herbs maintain their freshness and efficiency. Through this diligent process, our preparations maximize the potency and efficacy of our immune booster.

Other Ways To Boost The Immune System

In addition to supplements, following a healthy diet and lifestyle is another way to maintain healthy immune system function.

The following foods and vitamin supplements are helpful to include in an immunity boosting diet:

  • Citrus fruits, such as oranges

  • Vitamin D

  • Folic acid

  • Echinacea extract

  • Elderberry extract
