How Glucan Elite Works
STEP 1 - ABSORPTION
β(1,3)-glucans are ingested and enterocytes act as a catalyst in transporting them across the intestinal cell wall and into the lymph. Purity, bioavailability and potency of the Beta Glucans taken are key in this step since your body cannot use what it does not absorb.
STEP 2 - INTERACTION
After β(1,3)-glucans are absorbed through the small intestines, research suggests that they begin to interact with macrophages to activate immune function.* Macrophages are a type of white blood cell that absorb, engulf and eliminate harmful invaders such as viruses, bacteria, pathogens, fungi and parasites that they do not recognize as healthy body cells.
STEP 3 - MODULATION
Research suggests that β(1,3)-glucans may help to modulate the immune system without over-stimulating it.* By interacting and activating macrophages and other cells in the body, β(1,3)-glucans may help your body become more efficient at recognizing and fighting foreign invaders and protect cells.*
STEP 4 - OPTIMIZATION
As a result of this, you may have a more alert and effective immune system that helps you naturally function at your optimal capacity.* It is highly recommended that you consult with your physician to allow them to review where you are currently at and where you want to be in terms of your specific health needs and goals.
