When will children benefit from immune support?
• In general, supports the immune system
• In general, supports your child’s respiratory system
• When your child has a cold
• Helps maintain a healthy heart
One principal factor about Beta glucan’s is that they can trigger events in the body that help regulate the immune system, making it more efficient.
Beta-glucans are naturally occurring polysaccharides that the body does not produce naturally, your child will require outside sources for their Beta Glucan’s through supplements or certain foods. This soluble fibre comes from the cell walls of yeast and other fungi like mushrooms, also from algae and bran. Fibre can have an important role on the health of the digestive tract, which in turn supports immune responses and nutrient absorption.
Food sources of Beta Glucan’s
Bran especially oats and barley
