Sale price

Info: 90 Veg. Capsules

This formula from NOW Foods is comprised of the most concentrated sources of beta-glucans available: Saccharomyces cerevisiae (the inner cell walls of baker's yeast) and Maitake mushroom. 

Product Notes:

Immune response relies on the stimulation of macrophages - white blood cells that scour the body on search and destroy missions targeting harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. Unfortunately, these "special forces" are not always on duty - they must first be activated. And that's the role of beta-glucans: they give the "go order" to the body's macrophages. The more beta-glucans in the system, the more macrophages will be called into action.

As research evolves, consumers are increasingly turning to beta-glucans to give their immune function added firepower.


Each capsule contains:

Beta-1,3/1,6-D-Glucan Powder (from Saccharomyces cerevisiae): 100 mg
Maitake Mushrooms (Grifola frondosa): 160 mg

Non-medicinal ingredients: Veg. Capsule (hypromellose, water), Cellulose, Magnesium Stearate (vegetable source) and Silica.

Suggested Usage:

Adults: Take two capsules, 2 times daily. Store in a cool, dry place.


Consult a healthcare practitioner prior to use if you have diabetes, or if you suffer from an immune system disorder (e.g. Crohn's disease, myasthenia gravis, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, HIV/AIDS, etc.) or if you are taking immunosuppressants, NSAIDS or antibiotics.
