Beta Glucan

High Dose, Highly Purified Beta Glucan

beta glucan 300

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 the differences in products like your life depends on it.

If you have a serious health issue and want to try a product the single biggest mistake you can make is to buy a product based solely on purity level, such as 99.5% Pure. This appears to be an impressive, but purity of a product alone is not the litmus test of its effectiveness, for instance, "pure" Beta Glucan is also used to thicken ice cream and has no immune system benefits.

Pure, or near 100% pure products range from about 7% to 89% active 1,3/1,6 linkage.

What is 1,3/1,6 active linkage? It's the part of beta glucan that over 2,000 peer reviewed, published studies have proven will trigger the human immune system. The other "stuff" in pure beta glucan has no immune system benefits.

If you are trusting your health to a product, you would be wise to know how much of the product is 1,3/1,6 active linkage.

There is great confusion on web sites. FDA will a allow a retailer to claim 100% beta glucan. There is no FDA requirement to tell you what percentage of the active 1,3/1,6 linkage.

We are Southeastern Pharmaceutical Wholesale, Inc. We are selling the purest product with the highest active 1,3/1,6 linkage you can buy, and we sell it at a fair price. We provide you detailed Supplement Facts panel, Certificate of Analysis (C of A) and peer-reviewed, published test data that you can independently confirm.

You have a choice. You can believe the 2000 published studies are real and the effectiveness of a beta glucan product is solely based on the percentage of active 1,3/1,6 linkage, or you can believe 100% pure beta glucan is the best you can buy and not care how much of the product is actually active 1,3/1,6 linkage.

Comparing products is very straightforward.

1) If a product claims to be near 100% pure, but will not detail the linkages of the product, you can assume there is a reason they do not want you to know the actual percentage of the 1,3/1,6 linkages.

2) If a product has high percentage of active 1,3/1,6 linkages, they will make sure you know about it. It will be detailed on the product's supplement facts panel on the back of the bottle and there will no issue in proving you a certificate of analysis (C of A) confirming the actual linkages.

Beta Glucan, factually, is the most intensely studied immune system stimulator.  There are over 3,000 published, peer-reviewed studies in prominent medical journals on Beta Glucan.  Beta Glucan has been, and currently is, the primary treatment for cancer in Asia.

The Journal of American Nutraceutical Association (JANA) recently published the most comprehensive and complete, peer reviewed, study ever published on "Commercially available" Beta Glucan Products ranking their immunological benefits.  The study is groundbreaking, as it also includes prescription mushroom-based beta glucan known as PSK/Krestin, which is used as the primary treatment for cancer in many Asian countries.

Beta Glucan #300

Beta Glucan #300

Beta Glucan #300 has the highest proven immunological benefits and Active 1,3/1,6 Linkage:  Eight (8) times more effective than any mushroom based beta glucan, including the prescription products used throughout Asia, and 160 times more effective than many of the popular Internet beta glucan products being sold.

This independent published research confirms the 3,000+ published studies on Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan over the past 30 years.

The active ingredients in "Beta Glucan" are the 1,3 and 1,6 terminal linked glucose molecules. This is why advanced immune system products made from "Beta Glucan" are correctly known as "Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan".

The effectiveness of a product is determined by the actual amount of the 1,3 and1,6 terminal linked glucose molecules (know as Active Linkage) that are in the product. 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 about 100 brands of products.  Most of them are private labeled products sold by multi-level marketing companies and mass marketers.  These products are sold by filling up web sites with the proven benefits from the published studies.

The information is displayed in web sites in such a way the average customer will assume the product being offered will produce similar benefits.  It does not matter if their product contains 18% Active Linkage or 80%, they all use the same data to sell you their product.

You do not have to rely on a published peer-reviewed study or the contents of a web site to determine how effective a beta glucan product is.  All you have to do is look at the Supplement Facts panel on the back of the bottle.

JANA Published Test Data

Comparing products is straight forward.  All you have to do is to find out how much 1,3/1,6 Terminal Linkage Glucan (Active linkage)  is in the products you are considering.

The FDA requires every product to have a printed "Supplement Facts" panel.  A product's Supplement Facts panel tells more about the effectiveness of the product than most web sites. 

The Supplement Facts panel will always tell you the milligram dose in the product, but there is no FDA requirement to tell you the purity of the Active Linkage in the product.

There are only two types of Supplement Facts panels.  

One panel tells you the milligram dose and the percentage of Active Linkage, the other tells just the milligram dose.

 Facts Panel - detailed

This is the panel from our product, which factually tells you what the product contains.

1) The stated ingredients add up to 100%.

2) The 1,3 and 1,6 linkages are detailed. This product contains 88.7% Active Linkage.

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


The following Supplement Fact panel is the most common. It's suggesting 100% beta glucan and no information is provided about the product's active linkage.

This type of Supplement Facts panel does not tell you the amount of Active Linkage in the product.

This type of panel does not tell you the percentage of the 1,3 and 1,6 Active Linkages, nor does it add up to 100%. This product might contain 10% or 80% Active Linkage, but there is no way to know. 

If the actual linkages are not shown, there is likely a reason they do not want to reveal their level of purity.

Every product will have different values for the linked-glucose it contains. Some retailers will add unrelated linkages, such as the 2,3 or 3,6, and claim their product is 95% or 100% "pure".  Even if you do not understand what the retailer is doing, your immune system will. 

Beta 1,3/1,6 GlucanAll products contain some amount of Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan. Just because the label makes a claim of containing Active Linkage, it does not tell you the percentages of Active Linkage.

If you are serious about your health, take the time to study supplement fact panels on the products you are considering. 

An interesting fact is there are no published studies (on humans) with a beta product with less than 80% Active Linkage. There is no clinical proof that a product with less than 80% active linkage will work in humans.

Every manufacturer knows exactly how much Active Linkage is in their product. The question is, will they provide you documentation? Depending on how serious your health issue is, it would be advisable to determine the actual amount of Active Linkage in the products you are considering.

We guarantee you will not find a more Biologically Active product or better price.
