Absorption and the Immune System

beta glucan micronized immune system

Over the last several decades, many researchers and clinicians have examined the effects of Beta-1, 3-D glucan on wound repair and other healing processes after injury even surgery. I offer an overview of how the immune system plays such a vital role in rapid recovery from these insults.

Pin Beta Glucan, Micronization and the Immune System

The following pictures are electro microscopic photos of macrophages which uptake the fluorescent labeled Beta Glucan particles. A study group in University of Lousville, captured the scenes through electro microscope for the first time in the world.

Further, the same group succeeded to take the microscopic photos of fluorescently labeled Beta Force Beta 1, 3 d glucan glucose molecule engulfed and digested by mouse bone marrow macrophages on the day 12 after the mice were orally fed the material. This shows the ability of the macrophages to breakdown the insoluble glucan material into a soluble form, which is considered the 'holy grail' of beta glucan research and delivery in the the immune system.

Don't let anyone tell you that 'normal' Beta 1, 3-D Glucan is 'to large', that it needs to be "micronized" to be absorbed by the body. We offer scientific proof that our material is absorbed into the immune system and then is broken down into the soluble form and then migrates to the bone marrow. The foundation of the immune system.

All the cells that make up the immune system are originally initially obtain from the bone marrow. They are created in a process called hematopoiesis. The creation of the immune system cells are derived from stem cells located in the bone marrow. This process creates the red blood cells and platelets as well as the B cells, natural killer cells, granulocytes and immature thymocytes.
