- Can stimulate various aspects of immune function by activating key cells in the immune system.
- Enables a quick action in recognising and destroying harmful foreign cells.
- Has the ability to counteract immunodepression caused by intensive exercise.
SuperSmart's beta-(1,3/1,6)-glucan contains extract of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a baker's yeast with very effective properties.
Different types of glucans can be isolated for virtually all yeast varieties. SuperSmart beta-(1.3/1.6)-glucan (which contains at least 70% beta-(1.3/1.6)-glucan) produces particularly powerful biological effects.
Clinical studies have shown that beta-(1.3/1.6)-glucan boosts immune response by activating key cells in the immune system, including macrophages and neutrophils, enabling them to act more quickly in recognising and destroying harmful foreign cells. Research in human and animal cell cultures suggests it can stimulate various aspects of immune function, such as phagocytosis or interleukin production.
The first studies showing beta-glucan's effect on the immune system were conducted in the 1940s. By the end of the Eighties, its precise mode of action had been established: it activates specific receptors located on the surface of macrophages, releasing a cascade of events which produce an entire arsenal of immune defence weapons. The first human study involved cases of advanced HIV infection. Administration of beta-(1.3/1.6)-glucan resulted in an increase in serum IL-1 and IL-2 cytokines and interferon, even in subjects with severe immune deficiency.
Other studies have indicated that beta-(1.3/1.6)-glucan:
