How Beta Glucan Supercharges Your Immune System

Beta Glucan is a polysaccharide found in foods like barley, oats, mushrooms and yeast. It is the most studied immunomodulator on earth, with over 140,000 published studies on PubMed, and is currently being tested in 100 clinical trials. It’s kind of a big deal.

And that’s why I think you need to know about it.

In layman’s terms, Beta Glucan activates and enhances your immune response to invaders like bacteria, viruses and cancerous cells, which is a good thing.

AJ Lanigan has an extensive background in pharmaceutical and immunology, as well as drug and supplement research. If you saw him in The Truth About Cancer series, then you already know that 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. LOL! I could talk to this guy for hours… Enjoy!
