It is an inactivated yeast that tastes like cheese.
These yellow flakes are high in protein, minerals and beta glucans, known for their cancer busting properties.
So, What Are Beta Glucans?
Beta glucans are sugar compounds found in bacteria, yeast, fungi, algae and plants such as oats and barley.
They are a source of soluble fiber, and research proves that they reduce high cholesterol and improve skin conditions such as eczema, bedsores, wounds, and radiation therapy burns.
* Supporting the immune system to fight bacterial infections.
* Enhancing the activity of natural killer cells, a part of the immune system that recognizes and attacks cancer cells.
* Improving the gut microbiome. Beta glucans are prebiotics, which is food for the healthy bacteria in the human digestive system.
How Does Beta Glucan Work?
Beta glucans don’t attack cancer directly, but they indirectly stimulate the immune system to attack cancer cells.
Beta glucans are first absorbed in the small intestine and broken into smaller parts. These substances then enter into circulation where they interact with bone marrow and various parts of the immune system.
Once they are in the immune system, beta glucans:
*Enhance immune activation, which translates into anti-cancer activity.
* Spur immune cells to produce anticancer compounds called cytokines, which regulate inflammation and help the immune system fight cancer.
