Who is it for?
Betamune75 is a specially purified beta-glucan 1-3,1-6 with no less than 75% independently certified linkage.
There are various different stages of purification with beta-glucan 1-3, 1-6 and some specialists insist that the higher the pure-beta glucan content the more effective the immuno modulation. Whilst our Glucamune and Glucasan products have been shown to provide the most effective all round performance (see here); Betamune 75 is for those who require the highest purity (linkage).
Clinically proven Betamune75 is for anyone (all adults, children and infants) whose immune system is in need of a boost or because it could be run down through poor diet, stress, illness, age or lifestyle.
Betamune75 is particularly suitable for intensive high dose use in conjunction with other therapies and treatments.
Use it to help fight allergy; help prevent infections such as cold and flu; add extra natural protection to help stay well when travelling; or simply to maintain the very best of health.
Use Betamune to naturally kick start your body's defence system to help boost natural immunity, fight against infection or just stay at your very best.
Why do I need to supplement my immune system?
The innate immune system - the most important element in our defence against infection - has been lulled into a state of low activity by our over-sanitised environment. Beta-Glucans are immuno-modulators; they restore the innate immune system to full effectiveness.
What are Glucans …. and how do they work?
Beta-Glucans are specialised carbohydrates built up of glucose molecules. They occur naturally in yeast, mushrooms and certain plants.
Beta-Glucans from different sources come in various types and structures, with different effects in the body. The beta glucans in Betamune75, derived from baker's yeast, are the best documented and most effective immuno-modulators available.
Which should I chose?
See the Supplements page for more information - here
Betamune75 has no added minerals so is suitable for those taking additional mineral supplements, children and infants and those on a high doses used in a combination with cancer treatments and other therapies that can compromise the immune system.

Betamune versus current Supplements:
Echinacea - found to be ineffective protecting against respiratory tract infections such as coughs and colds (Grimm & Muller '99, Barrett et al 02, Kreutzfeld '06); ineffective or not proven (Caruso & Gwaltney '05, Carr & Nahata '06, Linde et al '06).
Vs Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera - may kill immune cells (Ramamoorthy & Tizard '98). Ineffective against viruses (Unsinger ‘97)
Vs Pro biotics
Pro biotics - efficacy only against gastrointestinal infections
Goldenseal - no in vivo evidence. Linked to potentially fatal adverse effects (Bhowmick et al ‘07)
Vs Cat's Claw
Cats Claw - interesting anti-inflammatory properties (ie Mur et al '02), but no in vivo evidence of immune activity
Antioxidants - may even be harmful (Bjelakovic & Gluud ‘07)
The Beta Glucan 1-3, 1-6 in Betamune is in an optimum bio-available concentration and is clinically proven to kick-start the immune system and help your body fight infection, stay well and function at its best.
