    BetaMax 500
    (60 Capsules)
    Code: 565 -- $49.95
    A dietary supplement used to support immune function. Beta glucan is derived from the baker’s yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Fatty acids have been extracted from this product thereby increasing purity and quality. Literature reports use of beta glucan to enhance macrophage activity for patients who may have chronic disease, cancer, flu viruses, bacteria, parasites, radiation, stress, intense exercise, and diabetes.

    BetaMax 250 / IP6
    (250 grams)
    Code: 567 -- $210
    A dietary supplement used to support immune function. Beta 1,3 D glucan is derived from bakers yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Fatty acids have been extracted from our proprietary beta product increasing purity and quality. Literature reports use of beta glucan to activate macrophages. Documentation in literature has shown tumor regression in mice when given beta glucan at 30-70 mg per kilogram of body weight. IP6 (inositol hexaphosphate) is a component found in rice bran. IP6 is rapidly absorbed by cells and metabolized to lower phosphates and inositol. It has been suggested that lower inositol phosphates may mediate cancer inhibition. In cancer remediation, as reported by Von Addrenne, the phytic acid or IP-6 pushes oxygen from the blood stream deep into tissue and this oxygen concentration is toxic to the mutated cancer cells. Both IP6 and lower phosphates have metal chelating activity and may interfere with tumor formation by suppressing metal catalyzed oxidation of fats. Both beta glucan and IP6 have been shown to exert both chemo preventive and anti-cancer effects. Wholesalers: inquire about bulk powder.

    Beta Glucan - 60 Capsules Beta 1,3-D Glucan (normally abridged to "beta glucan" for convenience) is a powerful immune booster. Derived from cell walls of yeast (Saccromyces cerevasiae), it triggers an immune response in the body, creating a system of defense against a broad range of pathogenic organisms (viruses, bacteria, fungus, parasitic and neoplastic invaders).

    How It Works
    Beta Glucan activates immune cells called "macrophages" - responsible for finding and trapping foreign or invasive agents that threaten the body. When activated, these cells initiate a chain of events that cause the body as a whole to be alerted and mobilized. In this heightened state of alert, the immune system is better prepared to repair damaged tissue, help other substances such as antibiotics, anti-fungals, and anti-parasitics. In this state, the macrophages are also better able to recognize and destroy mutated cells. This is an important supplement for those with degenerative diseases, such as cancer, because the disease itself suppresses the immune system. Beta Glucan helps to reverse this.

    Why We Carry It
    Many of Alpha Omega's formulas, particularly Cansema, particularly in its internal versions, and the CanSupport formulas work in conjunction with the immune system. So immune boosting adjunctives can actually make our key products work better.
    Secondly, in some countries, such as Japan, Beta Glucan is already being used clinically as a distinct cancer therapy. Given the focus of our work, it would be inconsistent with our policy of bringing the best cancer support products from around the world to our customers if we were to overlook this important supplement.

Questions and Answers:
  • Q: What is Beta Glucan?
    A: Beta Glucan is a dietary supplement used to support immune function through macrophage activation. It is derived from the cell walls of baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and historically has an FDA GRAS rating with no known toxicity.

  • Q: If I am sensitive to yeast will Beta Glucan exacerbate my problem?
    A: No, Beta Glucan does not contain yeast proteins, therefore it will not exacerbate your sensitivity.

  • Q: Who is Beta Glucan good for?
    A: Beta Glucan is good for everybody and all ages. It provides superior immune support to patients who may have the flu and cold, viruses or bacterial infections or as extreme as chronic disease, cancer or cardiovascular disease. Note dosage amt. will change, please call for daily recommended dosage.

  • Q: Can I give Beta Glucan to my animals?
    A: Yes, you can use Beta Glucan on anything that has an immune system whether it is a dog, cat, horse, bird or even fish. Note dosage amt. will change, please call for daily recommended dosage.

  • Q: Can I take Beta Glucan with other nutritionals, vitamins, antibiotics, antifungals and antiparasitics?
    A: Yes, you can, it actually aids in the healing process. As shown by Baylor University, Beta Glucan increases the strength of antibiotics by 4xs. Note, take Beta Glucan on an empty stomach (I hour before food) and do not consume with a sugar drink.

  • Q: If I have further questions about this product and it's uses or want additional information, who do I contact?
    A: Write to our support team at support@herbhealers.com. Ask for technical assistance with Beta Glucan.
