Beta Glucan - Why Transfer Point is the Best Beta Glucan
Last Updated: 02/11/2012
Beware! All beta glucan products are not created equal.
The beta glucan produced by Transfer Point is simply the best because it is the purest, highest quality and most affordable beta glucan available anywhere.
Beta Glucan has been one of the most intensely studied immune potentiators ever to come down the pike. Transfer Point’s Beta Glucan has had more documented 3rd party scrutiny than any other glucan product on the market today.
Examine closely, under identical standards, the products you would consider putting in your stomach, or the stomach of a loved one. Do not be swayed by psychobabble and "reasonable arguments" when assessing the safety, efficacy and a proper therapeutic dosage.
Transfer Point beta glucan has been tested at two major universities. Those tests reflect the following:
Proper Therapeutic Dosage
Some makers of beta glucan warn that taking too much could possibly be harmful. However, research suggests the exact opposite is true. Many companies sell beta glucan products and charge enormous sums for only a miniscule 3 mg. to 10 mgs. per capsule. This dose was found effective for Leghorn chicks and cotton mice, but is NOT an effective therapeutic dose for the weight of the average human. Not one single human study revealed a 3, 5, 7.5, 10, 20 or any other micro-dose of beta glucan to be of any effect for humans. A search of MEDLINE (National Library of Science) revealed eleven pages of human studies of beta glucan given orally and effective against several types of diseases, including cancer. (All were large milligram doses, averaging 3000 mg).
A therapeutic dose of beta glucan, for the average human, is considered by many researchers to be 25 mg per kilogram of body weight. This is approximately 500 mg. per 50 lbs of body weight. Take your body weight and add a zero to get the recommended milligrams per day for a serious health condition. Norwegian beta glucan, one prominent manufacturer, has high dose capsules available. However, by their own analysis . their capsules contain a staggering 110 mg. of yeast protein. Anyone who is even slightly allergic to yeast and other impurities could have severe allergic reactions. Plus, Norwegian beta glucan contains up to 9% fat. This interferes with the absorption of the beta glucan and much of it is not utilized.
