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 depends on it.
If you have a serious health issue and want to try beta glucan, the single biggest mistake you can make is to buy a Beta Glucan product based solely on purity level, such as 99.5% Pure Beta Glucan. This appears to be an impressive beta glucan product, but purity of beta glucan 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 Beta Glucan 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 beta glucan 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 "pure" beta glucan is active 1,3/1,6 linkage.
We are Southeastern Pharmaceutical Wholesale, Inc. We own all the primary beta glucan web addresses and can sell anything we want to. We are a wholesaler, if there was a more effective beta glucan product we would know about it and be selling it. 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 Beta Glucan products is very straightforward.
1) If a beta glucan 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 beta glucan 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 (or C of A) confirming the actual linkages.

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.
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 panel does not tell you the percentage of the 1,3 and 1,6 Active Linkages, nor does it add up to 100%. This Beta Glucan 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.
All Beta Glucan 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.
We are experienced Beta Glucan wholesalers and factually know beta glucan product's Active Linkage ranges from 18% to 88%, with the majority being 70% or less. This is also confirmed by the JANA study ranking the Commercially Available products at the left.
If you are serious about your health, take the time to study supplement fact panels on the Beta Glucan products you are considering.
An interesting fact is there are no published studies (on humans) with a beta glucan 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 of Beta Glucan 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 Beta Glucan products you are considering.
We guarantee you will not find a more Biologically Active Beta Glucan product or better price.
