This week's interview features Beta Glucan expert AJ Lanigan. Beta Glucan is a natural polysaccharide found in many foods like barley, oats, mushrooms and yeast, and is the most studied immunomodulator on earth with over 140,000 published studies on PubMed and 100 current trials on ClinicalTrials.gov. In layman's terms, Beta Glucan activates and enhances your immune systems response to invaders like bacteria, viruses and cancerous cells, which is a good thing.
AJ has an extensive background in pharmaceutical and immunology, as well as drug and supplement research. Some of you will recognize him from the Truth About Cancer series. AJ is quite the character. He has a unique way of taking complex scientific concepts, like the inner workings of your immune system, and making them easy to understand. And he does it all with a sweet South Carolina twang. Enjoy!
