What are yeast beta glucans?
Beta glucans are naturally found in some foods, and different types of beta glucans have different biological functions. Because the body doesn’t produce beta glucans naturally, the only way to get them is through nutritional sources. But it’s important to know that not all beta glucans are effective in supporting immune health.
The key to understanding how a beta glucan works, and its benefits, is to understand its:
- How it’s made
- Clinical research that demonstrates how it works and its efficacy
Wellmune, a yeast beta glucan clinically shown to help support immune health.
A beta glucan derived from a proprietary strain of baker’s yeast, Wellmune is an ingredient used by food, beverage and supplement makers to give people the research-supported immune health benefits they want most.
How is Wellmune made?
Wellmune is extracted from the cell wall of a specific type of baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) through a proprietary process that allows for optimal bioavailability and immune support. And because the way it is made is unique, research that shows Wellmune’s immune-supporting properties apply only to Wellmune.
Research is the only way to confirm efficacy.
A recent research review looked at the research on Wellmune and several other yeast beta glucans and found Wellmune to be the best-studied beta glucan ingredient, and the one that has demonstrated the best results.
