Hepatica Beta Glucan 1,3/1,6 D is a dietary supplement rich in beta-glucan, obtained from brewer's yeast extract. It was created based on advanced, patented technology, which allowed the manufacturer to get a high degree of product purity, which guarantees the effectiveness of its action. This preparation is ideal support for the immune system.
Beta-glucan is an organic compound belonging to the group of polysaccharides that naturally occurs in the cells of some bacteria, fungi, algae, and grains. It is also a building component of the cell wall of brewer’s yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The isomer of this compound – 1,3/1,6 D is insoluble in water and is its most active form.
Efficient support of the immune system
Beta-glucan activates and enhances the response of immune cells such as macrophages, dendritic cells, and NK cells to pathogens. Consequently, the body can react faster and more effectively to the developing infection. Besides, if an infection occurs, it significantly mitigates its severity.
Beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system
Beta-glucan promotes the reduction of total cholesterol, as well as its LDL fraction in the blood. The optimal lipid profile, in turn, contributes to the proper functioning of the circulatory system. Too high cholesterol promotes the formation of atherosclerotic plaques in the blood vessels, which may lead to the development of coronary heart disease.
Beta-glucan may also have a positive effect on lowering blood glucose, the excess of which is currently a big problem for many people. By contrast, the regulation of glucose levels effectively reduces the risk of diabetes.
The supplementation of this preparation is recommended primarily for people with reduced immunity, as well as after antibiotic therapy.
Due to the beneficial effects of beta-glucan on the lipid profile and the cardiovascular system, this preparation is recommended for people who are at risk of hyperlipidemia and cardiovascular disease.
For the most effective action, use regularly.
Hepatica is a young Polish producer dealing with the highest-class natural products. Its specialty is a range of plant preparations, devoid of unnecessary supporting substances. The quality of each of them results from proper selection of materials, high content of active substances, the dose adjusted to the needs and form of a given dietary supplement. The heart of the company is its founder, a renowned physiotherapist and co-founder of Nature Laboratory, SławekRasiński, who derives his inspiration and knowledge from around the World. Numerous travels and acquaintances with doctors and herbalists from all continents fruit, changing in dozens of unusual, effective and also often innovative preparations, on which a large board of analysis specialists work in the best prepared laboratories.

Saccharomyces cerevisiae – yeasts from the group of monocellular fungi, commonly used by the researchers as test material, because of its small environment requirements. They are also popular in food industry.
The yeasts show health-promoting properties and are a good substitute for offal in vegetarian diet. They are a good source for vitamins, particularly B-vitamins. They have also positive influence on the condition of bacterial microflora, as they improve the functioning of intestinal barrier.
In dietary supplements and drugs, they are used mainly as a support for the functioning of the digestive system. They are also present in products improving the quality of skin, hair and nails, however the newest research suggests that the influence on these tissues results from the influence on the microbiota.
Beta-glucans are natural polysaccharides, obtained mainly from cell walls of fungi and plants. Beta-glucans are long-chain polymers, the side chains of which are composed of glucose.
These polysaccharides are distinguished by immunostimulating and immunomodulating activity, which it owes mainly to the presence of leukocytes, monocytes and macrophages of beta-D-glucan receptors on the surface of cells. Beta-glucans are recognized by our immune system as stranger substances, which makes the recognition of the receptor by macrophages contribute to the activation of processes of incapacitating pathogens and the immune response.
Not all beta-glucans are characterized by such an ability. The ability to modulate immune functions are demonstrates mainly by glucans, which contain bonds at the position 1.3/1/6. Beta-glucans are available on our website both in the form of mono-preparations and in the composition of immunity boosting complexes, based on fungi extracts.
