If your Beta Glucan product is not listed, it likely is a private labeled product from one of the listed manufacturers.


There is no shortage of Beta Glucan products to consider. Most cost much less, most make unsupported claims and reference out of text, published studies.

The effectiveness of Beta Glucan's immune system benefits are directly controlled by product purity. Product purity is the percentage of 1-3 and 1-6 linked Glucan molecules, correctly referred to as "1,3/1,6 linkage" in the product.

Beta Glucan test dataThe 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.

Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan was the top product, it was 8 times more effective than the next best product and 160 times more effective than many of the popular Internet products being sold. Click on the JANA logo to see how your Beta Glucan Product compares.

You do not have to rely on a published peer-reviewed studies or the contents of a website to determine how effective a beta glucan product will be. All you have to do is look at the Required Supplement Facts Panel on the back of the bottle.

Product purity ranges from about 20% to 88% Active 1,3/1,6 Linkage. The higher the percent of Active Linkage, the more effective the product will be.

What could be better than a "PURE" Beta Glucan?

pure beta glucan productsSadly, there is not a requirement for a retailer to state the percentage of Active 1,3/1,6 Linkage. Regardless of the product's purity, the retailer can claim "pure beta glucan" or 100% beta glucan. There is no such thing as a beta glucan product with 100% Active Linkage. It is up to you to check supplement facts panels or obtain a certificate of analysis on the products you are considering.

There are two basic type of Supplement Facts panels , "detailed" and "general".

beta glucan supplement facts panelThis general of panel does not tell you the percentage of the 1,3 and 1,6 Active Linkages. This Beta Glucan product might contain 20% or 80% Active Linkage, but there is no way to know.
beta glucan 300 supplement facts panel

This detailed panel from Beta Glucan #300 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.

all beta glucan products have different levels of active linkage





Every manufacturer of Beta Glucan knows exactly how much Active Linkage is in his product. The question is, will he 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.

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". 

If a product will not detail the linkages, you can assume they do not want you to know the actual percentage Active Linkage.

Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan is the purest and most effective Beta Glucan you can buy in the supplement industry today. Over 88% Active 1,3/1,6 Linkage and 3% or less fat. Its specifications are clearly superior, it is priced reasonably, and it is sold, not in micro dose, but high doses that produce real immune system benefits. You will not find a better, safer valued, or more effective product.

If you don't know the differences between Beta Glucan products, your immune system will.
