Beta-glucans from different sources have a very different build-up. Baker’s yeast contains so-called beta-1,3/1,6-glucan.
Yeast beta-glucan and immunity
When it comes to immune support, the best source of beta-glucan is baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). It has been proven the most efficient beta-glucan when it comes to immune modulation. In fact, beta-1,3/1,6-glucans are the only beta-glucans with immune stimulating potential.
