Increases production of white blood cells More immune cells can fight harmful invaders more effectively
Increases cellular mobilization Immune cells can respond to harmful invaders faster
Increases production of reactive oxygen intermediates (ROIs) Phagocytes (macrophages) can destroy more harmful invaders faster by eating them
Helps shift the immune response from an overstimulated Th2 to a balanced Th1 response Anecdotal evidence suggests this may help with allergies, autoimmune disease and cancer.

At Harmony Center, we have researched sources and have chosen to add Transfer Point's Beta Glucan to our limited and specialized product line.
It has been researched and documented by some of the most pretigious universities in the world: Auburn University, Brown University, Cornell University, Memorial Slaon Kettering Cancer Center, North Carolina A & T State University, University of Louisville, University of Massachusetts, University of Minnesota, U.S. Armed Forces Radiology Research Institute and the Defence Research Establishment in Suffield, Canada.

All of the ingredients Transfer Point uses in their product line are manufactured in the United States using Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). With all of the uncertainties that come with importing ingredients, they do not consider any ingredient that is not American made with stringent production guidelines.

Transfer Point offers Certificates of Analysis on every batch of every product, and they do not carry a large line of products. For this reason, we have included their other products in our inventory and are pleased to also offer you AstaCran, (promotes eye and nervous system health) Barley Beta Glucan, (to maintain healthy cholesterol levels) Insulaid, (healthy blood sugar and cholesterol support) and MSM, (benefits joint health).

What does it do?
What glucans seem to do is to stimulate/irritate your white blood cells called Macrophages into action. There are actually beta glucan receptors displayed by immune cells that the lectin fits right into like a lock and key and switches on or activates the macrophage to do it's job... clean up. Increased macrophage activity triggers a whole cascade of immune events, which basically boosts immune response, which improves natural host resistance. It also stimulates the production of immune cells.
These benefits apply to Transfer Point's Beta Glucan (Glucan 300) only:

  • Highly purified Beta glucan has a GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) rating by the USDA, because there is no known toxicity

  • Yeast is proven to be the most effective source for immune modulating Beta glucan

  • Transfer Point Beta glucan will not affect those with yeast allergies, because all of the proteins and manoproteins that cause allergic reactions have been removed

  • Transfer Point is the only company to use Glucan 300, an ingredient proven to be more effective than any other product commercially available.

    In Japan, extracts containing various types of Beta glucan have been used to successfully assist in treating cancer patients for the last 20 years. See Aoki, T. Chapter 4, Lentinan. In: Modulation Agents and their Mechanism. Richard L. Fenichel (Ed), Marcel Dekker, Inc., New
    York and Basel, pp 63-77 (1984).

    There appears to be a synergistic relationship between Beta-Glucan and Vitamin C, so many clinics combine both in their treatments.
