Winning the battle begins with a strong immune system.

Maybe your health issue is not very serious, and you can afford to "try" a cheaper beta glucan product to see what happens.  Or maybe you are running out of options, and you are going to research beta glucan like your life depended on it.

You have a choice.  You can believe what someone writes on a website, or you can trust FDA required ingredient lists on the Beta Glucan products you are considering. Websites do not make a Beta Glucan products effective, product specifications are what count.

We read the same websites you do; they are all very impressive, but are they?   Most beta glucan websites are impressive because they are filled with out of text quotes from the 3,000 published studies on beta glucan, most of which are done on cancer.  What these websites do not tell you is all of the published studies on beta glucan was done with beta glucan that contained Active Linkage above 85%, and none of the referenced research was done on the product they are offering for sale.  The reason these other web sites exist is because most people are clueless about what Active Linkage is. 

Advanced immune system products made from beta glucan are different.  These products are known as Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan.  The "1,3/1,6" refers to a specific combination of molecules that has been proven to dock with the CR4 receptor of macrophages and natural killer cells in your body, which activate them.  The concept of Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan is to reactivate/stimulate your immune system to a point that it will start to recognize and attack the original cancer cells and foreign pathogens in your body, something it likely has stopped doing. The 3,000 published studies on beta glucan all center around 1,3/1,6 linkages known as Active Linkage.

The issue:

All Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan products contain Active Linkage.  The percentage of Active Linkage in the various products ranges from about 20% to 90%.  Beta glucan prices range from less than $10 to over $90 a bottle.  

There is only one primary issue that effects beta 1,3/1,6 glucan:  

If a beta glucan product contains 60% Active Linkage, that means it contains 40% of "something else".  This "something else" will be fat, protein, and other unwanted linkages which are attached to the Active Linkage.  These unwanted molecules start to cover up, distort or camouflage  the Active Linkage, reducing your immune system's ability to "see it" or respond to it.

This is why all the research on Beta  Glucan has been done with Active Linkage above 85%.  

There is no published proof a product with Active Linkage below 85% will work in humans.  This is also why taking twice as much of a less pure product will not be as effective as a smaller amount of a highly purified Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan.

Absolutely no one will dispute the fact immune system benefits are from the Active Linkage: 

Selecting a beta glucan product should be simple.  All you have to do is determine the Active Linkage in a product, its price, dose, and decide if you want to buy it or not.

However, it is not so simple because most of the websites will give you endless and very compelling reasons why their beta glucan product is the "best", but will never tell you the percentages of the 1,3 and 1,6 terminal linked glucan molecules (Active Linkage) in their product. The reason is simple, the Active Linkage is likely low, and if you knew the actual percentages, you could compare products and you would likely not buy it.   

Many retailers are savvy.  They can convince most customers their product is better than it is.

See if you can figure the following out; if you cannot, your immune system will.

overfilled 500 mg beta glucan clapletsThese are two, 500 mg doses of Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan. They are being marketed based on Active Linkage.  

The larger of the caplets is sold by a retailer claiming his product contains 97% Active Linkage.  The second caplet claims 88% Active Linkage and sells for $15 more per bottle.  The correct choice between these two products appears to be clear, but is it?

The larger 500 mg caplet has been "overfilled".  

Its actual weight is not 500 mg, but is 700 mg, and this is why it is larger.  The actual 1,3/1,6 Active Linkage of the tan powder inside the caplet is 70%.  

The claim of 97% Active 1,3/1,6 Linkage is obtained by multiplying 700 mg (its actual weight) times 70% (the actual purity), which equals 490 mg of Active 1,3/1,6 Linkage.  He then takes the stated dose of 500 mg and compares it to the 490 mg of 1,3/1,6 Linkage in the caplet to generate the "claim" of 97% Active Linkage. 

Overfilling the caplet does not change the fact the actual Active 1,3/1,6 Linkage of the product is still 70%.  You think you are buying the "best", yet you end up with a 70% product, with no published proof it will work. Overfilling is a trick used to distort a product's effectiveness.  

Since overfilling is common, a statement about Active Linkage is only valid if it is based on a "Dry Weight Basis",  not on "stated dose".   The second caplet 's Active Linkage is based on Dry Weight, and is, in fact, a 88%  Active 1/3,1/6 Linkage product.  

chart showing active Beta Glucan linkage

This chart is impressive.  What the author wants you to "see" is that his product has twice as much Active Linkage than the next "best" product.  

If the caplet's weight is 500 mg, then this is a high quality product.  If the caplet is overfilled, a chart is being used to sell a lower quality product.

Charts can be misleading. 

pure beta glucan, example #1

pure beta glucan, example #2

The Active Linkage in Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan is contained in the outer cell wall of the beta glucan molecule.  This means "pure" beta glucan is actually the raw material used to extract the Active Linkage.  All beta glucan products are "pure beta glucan', but a claim of "pure" has nothing to do with the Active Linkage in a product. 

Many people will see the words "Pure Beta Glucan" on a product's label and assume nothing could be better than something that is "Pure".

Filling up a website with impressive published facts on the proven benefits of Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan, and labeling your product "Pure", does not make a product effective, just easier to sell to the uninformed customer.

The truth about a beta glucan product is not contained in a website, but the product's FDA required Supplement Facts panel:  

standard beta glucan supplement facts panel

If a product is low in Active Linkage, most products will make a general claim on the milligram dose, and be silent on the actual percentage of Active Linkage in the product. The FDA does not require any product to state the actual Active Linkage.

In this example, it is impossible to determine the purity of the product from this Supplement Facts panel.  

It only makes sense, if you were selling a high purity product, to let your customers know what the percentage of Active Linkage is.  However, if the percentage of Active Linkage is low, it might make sense to be silent, such as in the Supplement Facts panel above.

The 100% rule:

supplement facts panel from beta glucan product

This Supplement Facts panel is clear.  It adds up to 100%, and then you can add up the 1,3 and 1,6 linkages.  This product contains 63.6% Active Linkage.

Since only the 1,3 and 1,6 linkages are proven to effect the immune system, the other linkages do not count.  This is why advanced immune system products are called Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan.

Overfilling, out of text quotes, and unsupported claims make buying beta glucan difficult.  However, if you find a Beta Glucan product that has a Supplement Facts panel, or detailed Certificate of Analysis that adds up to 100%, you will always know exactly what you are buying.  

top 7 beta glucan product's Active Linkage

You do not have to believe that the data in the chart above was produced by an Independent ISO Certified test lab; you just have to worry that it might be true.  The chart represents the top 7 Beta Glucan product's Active 1,3/1,6 Linkage by Dry Weight

The chart illustrates the need to determine the actual Active Linkage in a product.  It is also interesting to note the most expensive Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan product from the chart has Active Linkage of less than 50%.
