Natural shield: the role of beta-glucan for Immunity

Modern realities show us that it is necessary to be afraid of colds not only in the off-season. It is important to take care of your immunity all year round, increasing the body's defense. Beta-glucans are the basis for well-being and disease-freeness. How does this element work and why is it valuable for the human body? Let's consider this in more detail in the article.

What is beta-glucan

What is beta-glucan

Beta-glucans are natural immunomodulatory agents that are most widely used in medical and pharmacological practice around the world. In fact, beta-glucans are polysaccharides made up of glucose molecules. The discovery of beta-glucans is undoubtedly a real breakthrough in the scientific world, because these elements solve the problem of the instability of the immune system in the fight against viruses and bacteria.

Beta-glucans are found in the cell walls of bacteria, fungi, yeast, algae, lichens, and plants such as oats and barley. Since the beta-glucan molecule itself is quite large in size, when it enters the intestine, it does not undergo fragmentary fermentation. They are captured by the cells of the intestinal mucosa and are actively transferred to the submucosal layer, where they activate macrophages, and through them – lymphocytes that are responsible for protecting the endothelium, that is, the local immunity.

Once in the stomach, large molecules of beta-glucans are not over-etched, but move further along the digestive system. They are captured by the cells of the intestinal mucosa and transferred by them to the submucosal layer, where they activate macrophages, and through them - lymphocytes responsible for protecting the endothelium, that is, for local immunity. Due to the repopulation mechanism, activated lymphocytes from the intestinal mucosa are disseminated into the mucous membranes of various organs, thus ensuring their protection against infections.

Scientists recently noted another amazing ability of beta-glucan to literally “absorb” bad cholesterol from blood plasma. Thus, the element has a positive effect on the entire cardiovascular system, reduces the risk of heart attacks and strokes, cleans the walls of blood vessels.

Benefits of beta-glucans for the body

The most important property of beta-glucans is the ability to accelerate metabolism, eliminate slags and toxins, and improve digestion. When it enters the cecum and colon, beta-glucan is gradually turning into polysaccharides, which serve as a nutrient medium for the microflora of the large intestine. Also, fiber speeds up the movement of food through the digestive tract, improving the process of digestion. As a result, the functional state of the gastrointestinal tract improves and the intestinal microflora normalizes.

Also, beta-glucan can work to regulate the amount of glucose in the blood, which is why diabetics take it on an ongoing basis. With regard to local and general immunity, we have already found out the principle of action of this element, which has been proven to increase the protective abilities of the body.

Beta-glucan at GoodLabs Immunal

Beta-glucan is a completely natural substance with unique biological properties. Beta-glucan stimulates macrophages and antibody production. It is a powerful and safe immune booster. It stimulates immune responses, increasing the rate of maturation of immune cells, changing their activity and significantly increasing their lifespan.

This is why beta-glucan has become the base ingredient in GoodLabs' Immunal complex formula. This substance also has a beneficial effect on reducing the frequency of symptoms of influenza and SARS. Beta-glucans activate both local immunity, protecting the body from invasions of antigens, and systemic immunity, which leads to the destruction of foreign genetic material that has already penetrated into the body.


Every day with food, you get a lot of vitamins and nutrients, but some of the elements are still in short supply. When developing the Immunal complex, it was important to determine a clear dosage of each element of the formula to maintain the ideal balance within the body.

The result of the research was the perfect composition of the complex, where each component complements each other. Beta-glucan is leading the fight for strong immunity and wellness.
