Every beta glucan retailer claims they are selling the “best” and offers compelling reasons why.
The question is why would you spend $70 for a bottle of what we claim is the “best”, Transfer Point Beta 1,3D Glucan, when you can buy the “best” from another retailer for $20?
Maybe your health issue is not too serious and you don't have much to risk to try a product that costs much less. Maybe you do not have many options and cannot afford to make a mistake.
So why is one product 3 times the cost of another?
The answer is straightforward. The price is determined by the amount of the Active Linkage in the product.
40-year of published research, over 2,000 peer-reviewed studies, confirms only the 1,3 and 1,6 Terminal Linked glucose molecules in beta glucan will trigger the human immune system.
Only the 1,3 and 1,6 linkages have been proven to bind/dock with the CR3 immune system receptors that activate the tumoricidal (literally, "tumor-killing") activities of the innate cells of the immune system, specifically macrophages, neutrophils, and natural killer cells.
There are no (credited) studies ever published with a product with less than 80% Active Linkage. For example, if you are considering a product with 40% Active Linkage, the “other” 60% of the product will greatly interfere with the ability for the Active Linkage to work. This is why taking twice as much of a 40% product will not be as effective as a smaller dose of a more pure product.
Transfer Point Beta Glucan has the highest percentage of Active Linkage you can buy, 88.7%.
Products range from approximately 8% to 88% active linkage. There is no published data showing a product with less than 80% active linkage will work in humans.
Immune system benefits do not come from the contents of a web site; they come from the 1,3 and 1,6 terminal linked glucose molecules. The only question that counts is how much active linkage is in the products you are considering.
The only common, 100% factual, information on the effectiveness of a product is their FDA required Supplement Facts panel.
Detailed below are 4 examples of Supplement Facts panels. When you understand what they are telling you, you can accurately compare products.
No purity information
This label does not tell you the percentage of active linkage. It might be 90% or less than 10%. The FDA does not require a retailer to detail linkages. If the active linkage is not stated, there is likely a reason they do not want you to know.
As the percentage of Active Linkage drops, the percentage of fats, proteins and undesirable linkages increase and your body may or may not respond. This is why taking twice as much of a less pure product will not produce the same immune benefits of smaller dose of a highly purified product.
This label is more misleading. It is clearly showing 75 mg of active linkage. What it does not show is that its from a 250 mg product. In other words, its only 30% pure. There is no such thing as 100% active linkage. If a product will not detail 100% of its ingredients, there is a reason.
This label is telling you exactly what is in the product. The ingredients add up to 100%. If you add up the 1,3 and 1,6 linkage, the product is only 63.6% active linkage. Note that the product servings is 2, amount per "serving" is 350 mg. Each caplet is 175 mg.
Transfer Point Beta 1,3D Glucan 88.7% Active Linkage
This label is telling you exactly what is in the product. The ingredients add up to a 100%. If you add up the 1,3 and 1,6 linkage, the product is 88.7% active linkage. Note that the product servings is 2, amount per "serving" is 1,000. Each caplet is 500 mg.
The last label is from Transfer Point Beta 1,3D Glucan. If you can find a product with active linkage higher than 88.7% it will be more effective.
Most retailers will not provide a clear supplement facts panel for comparison. The lower the product's purity, the less information will be provided. On the other hand, if a product is high in purity the retailer will make sure you know about it.
The bottom line is if a retailer will not provide a supplement facts panel, showing everything in the product, and adding up to 100%, you will not know what you are trusting your health to.
The Journal of American Nutraceutical Association (JANA), an independent publication, has published the most comprehensive and complete, peer reviewed, study ever published on "Commercially available Beta Glucan Products", ranking their immunological benefits.
If you click on the JANA logo you can see the results of the study.
Transfer Point Beta 1,3D Glucan has the highest proven immunological benefits: Eight (8) times more effective than the next "best" product and as high as 160 times more effective than many of the popular Internet products being sold.
Depending on how serious your health issue is, it would be advisable to determine the actual amount of Active Linkage in the Beta Glucan products you are considering.
