Improving Your Immune System? – One Sure Way – Beta Glucan
What does the immune system do?
The immune system’s main “job” is to protect your body against infection, disease or heal after trauma. Enhancement of the immune system has become a very “hot” topic because of the obvious declining state of the immune system, even in young children. More and more people are ill with colds, influenza, cancers, and a general existence of low energy, lack of vigour..and plain just not feeling well.
What has happened? Why do we as practitioners see more and more chronic illness in younger and younger patients? Even in pets..they are getting “human” diseases at an alarmingly rapid rate..and again..far too young.
I believe the largest contributor is our lousy, over-processed, North American diet and it applies to pet food as well. With far too much sugars, chemicals and ‘Frankenfood’ in it, no wonder people are getting sick.
Of course, things like stress, lack of good sleep, lack of effective exercise also contribute, but assuming one is now aware and changing these factors, what can help everyone, human and pets to boost their immune system?
Beta 1,3 Glucans..But NOT Just Any Beta..
Beta-1, 3-D glucan is the sole active ingredient in Beta Gold from Transferpoint, the ONLY one I’ll use in my practise. It is derived from the cell walls of baker’s yeast, (its not the protein of the yeast so it does NOT affect or cause yeast allergy) making it the precise substance for which the actual glucan macrophage receptor (the active part ) has been identified. (Beta-1, 3-D glucan is technically referred to as a polybranched polyglucose – so complex a name, some refer to it as fiber).
In plainer language of its developer, Nicholas DiLuzio of Tulane University, “The broad spectrum of immunopharmacological activities of glucan includes not only the (modification and therefore preventing them to replicate and harm us) of certain bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic infections, but also inhibition of tumor growth.” Truly wonderful at fighting any disease of the immune system.
Beta Gold glucan is a baker’s yeast extract. baker’s yeast extracts have has been given a G.R.A.S. Rating (Generally Regarded As Safe) rating by the FDA. No adversity or toxicity can be known to have this rating. It does not contain the protein part of the yeast, so is not allergy inducing.
Basically anyone who has a heartbeat can take Beta Gold, particularly living in 21st century North America, where stress, pollutants and toxins are so prevalent. I would especially recommend it for people with impaired immunity, who are susceptible to allergies, autoimmune disease, infectious disease, slow and incomplete healing and cancer, wishing to slow the aging process, undergoing radiation or chemotherapy.
Over 40, most immune systems begin to slow through the aging process, so geriatric patients, who are exposed to radiation from external sources such as UV or electromagnetic fields, people with poor nutrition or who consume food preservatives, those under physical or emotional stress, athletes and those who work out extensively, people with high risk of cardiovascular disease should be taking this, for sure. And last but not least….Animals! To help them overcome illness, stay healthy and live longer.
We Now Have Beta Gold – Simply The BEST Beta Glucan Product (See Below For Third Party Research Info)
Third Party Research:
One of the things VERY few companies do is ‘Third Party Research’ which means that they have their product tested and confirmed by a research company who has NO vested interest in the product or the results, whatsoever.
Beta Gold Called Glucan #300 in the tests results included:
“Glucan #300 showed a broad range of action. Glucan #300
was the biologically most relevant immunomodulator.”
–DR. VACLAV VETVICKA, PHD, UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE
“When I share Beta-1,3D Glucan with my patients, I know
they have a safe and effective product that meets their healthcare
needs.” –KALYANI M. KUMAR, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., PRESIDENT AND
CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER, AMERICAN WELLNESS ALLIANCE, RICHMOND, VIRGINIA.
“After 30 years of dental surgery, I found a biological response
modifier that I use along with the standard of care to help
deal with antiobiotic resistance, post operative complications,
allergic reactions and other complex issues.”
–JOHN L. TATE, DDS, SPARTANBURG, SC
