Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Glucan 300® and Transfer Point Beta-1,3D Glucan?
Glucan 300® is the name registered for the active ingredient in Transfer Point’s Beta-1,3D Glucan (the product name).
What is Beta-1,3D Glucan (Glucan 300®)?
Beta-1,3D Glucan (Glucan 300®) is derived from the cell walls of baker’s yeast, making it the precise substance for which the actual glucan macrophage receptor (CR3, mac-1, CD11/CD18) has been identified. Beta-1,3D Glucan is technically a polybranched polyglucose – so complex some refer to it as a fiber.
Who will benefit from taking Beta Glucan?
Everyone has the potential to benefit from taking Beta Glucan in the correct dose. Especially people with impaired immunity, or who are susceptible to allergies, autoimmune disease, infectious disease, slow and incomplete healing and cancer, undergoing radiation or chemotherapy, or exposed to radiation from external sources such as UV or electromagnetic fields, or with a high risk of cardiovascular disease. People under physical or emotional stress, or who have poor nutrition or who consume food preservatives. Beta Glucan can also help to slow the aging process. Athletes and those who work out extensively will notice more benefit from their workouts while taking Beta Glucan. Animals will also benefit from taking Beta Glucan, because their immune systems are very similar to ours.
Are the effects of Beta-1,3D Glucan backed by scientific research?
Hundreds of scientific studies originating from such prestigious institutions as Tulane, Harvard, and the U.S. Armed Forces attest to the safety and efficacy of Beta-1,3D Glucan.
Why haven’t we heard about Beta Glucan before?
For nearly three decades, Beta-1,3D Glucan has been available to laboratories and medical schools. However, to purchase one 100mg sample of Beta 1, 3-D glucan would cost close to $200.00. This made it highly prohibitive from a commercial standpoint.
Is Beta Glucan derived from bakers yeast the most effective type of Glucan?
Glucans derived from barley, oats, or other grains have been shown to be ineffective as an immune modulator. Only Beta-1, 3D Glucan from the cell wall of baker’s yeast has been shown to have a potent effect on the immune system, in an economical manner.
What if I am allergic to yeast? Will this cause a problem?
No, Although derived from baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces ceravisiae), Beta Glucan is a pure isolate and does not contain enough yeast proteins to cause an allergic reaction.
Will Beta Glucan cause over-stimulation of my immune system?
No, The presence of Beta Glucan potentiates the receptors on the surface of the macrophage. Only the presence of non-self (virus, bacteria, fungi, cancer, parasites, etc.) causes the macrophage to become stimulated. Beta Glucan alone does not stimulate.
Will Beta-1, 3D Glucan cause or expand an autoimmune situation?
Beta-1,3D glucan does not create a danger. Considerable peer reviewed data indicates just the opposite.
Are there any drug reactions that can occur when taking Beta Glucan?
There are no adverse effects known when Beta-1,3D Glucan is taken in conjunction with pharmacological drugs. Beta-1,3D Glucan safely enhances the effect of many anti-infective drugs, cholesterol reducing drugs and chemotherapeutic agents.
Is Beta-1,3D Glucan effective?
The immune-enhancing properties of yeast cell walls were reported in 1939. But it wasn’t until the 1960’s that researchers identified beta 1,3 glucan as the immune-stimulating component. Since then, scientists at some of the world’s pre-eminent universities and research institutions have conducted more than 800 beta 1,3 glucan studies in animals and humans. This research confirms that beta 1,3 glucan produces multiple broad-scale effects that strengthen the vitality of the immune system.
A large body of research exists on the effectiveness of injectable yeast beta 1,3 glucan for various indications. One of the most exciting developments is new data establishing the efficacy of orally administered yeast beta 1,3 glucan.
Provided are the official abstracts (reprinted in their entirety) or representative published studies conducted on beta 1,3 glucan, sorted by their applicability to specified conditions. These abstracts are intended to provide a balanced view of the available scientific information related to beta glucan.
Does Beta Glucan cure cancer or any other disease?
Beta glucan is a food supplement, and as such, it does not “cure” anything. Your immune system is designed to fight off illness and disease, so it is important that you do everything possible to strengthen your immune system. Beta glucan acts as an immune modulator and is one part of a lifestyle approach to achieving a healthy immune response. Proper nutrition, rest, exercise, stress management, etc. are all equally important as well. The FDA prohibits dietary supplement companies from making claims regarding treatment or cure of a disease. Do your own research and become an informed consumer.
When can I expect results from taking Transfer Point Beta-1,3D Glucan?
Everyone is different, but as a general rule within 72 hours of taking Beta glucan your body’s immune system will begin working at its optimal levels.
How does Transfer Point ensure the safety of its ingredients?
Every single batch is tested by Transfer Point’s manufacturer, testing for purity and potency and coming with its own Certificate of Analysis. The facilities where Transfer Point’s products are encapsulated and packaged are ISO 9000 certified.
Dr. Vaclav Vetvicka from the University of Louisville answers the three most important questions about Beta Glucan:
Is Beta-1,3D Glucan safe and effective according to Dr. Vaclav Vetvicka?
For over 40 years, beta glucans have been thoroughly tested on everything from earthworms to human beings…even plants. Use of materials ranging from cancer to infectious disease to allergies…Beta Glucan always works. It appears that the primary things to consider about these compounds are that they are properly and sufficiently purified and biologically active. They are certainly safe.
Beta Glucans seem to have a great range of price in the marketplace. When one shops, how can one determine if they are getting a properly prepared, sufficiently purified and biologically active material?
Price is no indicator at all. Unless that particular batch has been properly assayed for purity and potency, you can not know if the dose is in the proper amount. Also, you can not expect a quality product unless every batch is tested…including a test for bioactivity. Many companies test nothing at all.
How can A.J. Lanigan claim that he has the best Beta-1,3D Glucan on the market?
I can say the following about the A.J. Lanigan brands. He has set the highest standards in the industry for purity and potency. He rejects over 90% of the material produced in their US factory and I know of no company in the world that is willing to do that. They can not afford it. I can further state that his brands have been the most intensively studied and we know and understand more about his material than any other available on the market today. He continues to expand this work by comparing materials on a side by side basis and he publicly reports the results. In a market that has many snake oil salesmen, you know best what you are getting when A.J. Lanigan’s name is on the bottle.
