Beta-Glucans

Beta-glucans are polysaccharides that are thought to enhance the immune system. They can be found in cereal grains such as bran, barley and oats, certain types of mushrooms, and fungi such as seaweed, reishi, shiitake and maitake mushrooms, as well as in the cell wall of bakerís yeast.

Beta-glucans are texturing agents that are very useful in human nutrition. Beta-glucan, depending upon its source, can be soluble and insoluble.

Research for beta-glucans is still in the infancy stages. As a dietary supplement, you can find beta-glucan in the form of tablets, capsules, topical creams and injectables.
