What is Beta Glucan?

Beta Glucan is the Most Studied, Natural Immune System Supplement in the World

Beta Glucan is a natural polysaccharide that is classified as an Immuno-Modulator; meaning, it “modulates” (changes) your Immune System to make it as efficient as possible. This fiber-like molecule works by activating every Immune System Cell in the body: Macrophages, Neutrophils, Basophils, Natural Killer Cells, etc.

Macrophages, specifically, trigger a host of immune functions that allow the body to produce the most complete, effective and appropriate immune response achievable. The activity of the body's immunocytes (Immune Cells) determines how well your Immune System traps and consumes invaders that do not belong in the body.

When the body is confronted with foreign pathogens it sees as non-self, Beta glucan puts the immune cells on “high alert” to confront the attackers.

Simply put, Beta Glucan is the catalyst that makes our immune systems smarter, increasing the strength of our wellness forces.

Immunologists Have Known the Benefits of Beta Glucan for Over 50 Years

Welcome to the Beta Glucan Capitol of the Internet.

For first time visitors, please note that “Beta Gluten," “Beta Glucon,” Beta Glucane,” etc.; are all just common misspellings / mispronunciations of the word Beta Glucan. Rest assured, you are in the right place:

Before starting a new supplement, you should know what Beta Glucan is, how it works, and why it’s necessary.

Beta Glucans are polysaccharides composed solely of glucose. The Beta Glucan product works by activating the immune cells known as Macrophages. These Macrophages trap and consume foreign substances that do not belong in the body. They "trigger" a whole cascade of immune functionality, allowing your body to produce the most complete, effective, and appropriate immune system response achievable.

Think of your immune system as a cavalry of "Generals." These Generals, are the brains behind an army of immune system “soldiers”; whose goal is to ward off any bodily invaders. Beta Glucan is the catalyst in making your Immune System Generals "smarter," while increasing the strength of your Immunocyte Army. Arming yourself with a more appropriate defense against life's daily challenges is like giving your Immune System the special training it needs, to be all it can be.

Why Doesn't Everyone Take Beta Glucan?

Cost has been a major drawback to the widespread use of Beta Glucan. However, A. J. Lanigan (Manufacturer of Transfer Point's Beta Glucan) perfected a proprietary method to produce the purest Beta-1, 3D Glucan at an affordable rate.

This discovery has made Beta Glucan affordable for everyone. One can purchase a 60 capsule bottle of 500mg Beta Glucan on our site for only $69.95. In the past, this would have sold for $60,000 before A.J.'s discovery: now everyone can partake in this once “Millionaire” supplement.
