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.

Transfer Point was found in the mid 1990's with the focus on providing the public with high quality, peer-reviewed immune support products. Transfer Point is a privately held company. They provide products that re considered "best-in-class". They focus on quality and a limited line of products that meet, or exceed the quality requirements found in peer reviewed medical literature.

With their principal focus on quality and research on the products conducted at some of the most prestigious medical institutions in the world their products have been utilized by both field of health. Every product formula that is made available by them is backed by a large amount of of peer-reviewed research, both in the United States and abroad. They are also manufactured under ISO9001 guidelines in cGMP facilities, and they adhere to strict Good Manufacturing Practices.

All raw batches of their ingredients are tested twice, first in the production phase and then after bottling to ensure that the product has not degraded in any manner which will further ensure the highest level of purity and potency. All assays tests are completed by respected independent 3rd party entities on a continual basis. This is extremely rare to find a company that provides for such a high level of quality assurance. Every single lot of product receives its own certificate of analysis, and is available by request.

The Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association and Glucan #300.

In an independent study released from the University of Louisville, Transfer Point beta glucan has been shown again to be America's number one immune system support product.

This study has been published in The Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association. It is the leading peer-reviewed journal on nutraceuticals and nutrition.

JANA is published quarterly. Health care professionals, researchers, naturopaths and many others consider it the bible for identifying safe and effective dietary supplements for their practice and/or personal use.

The study, titled "An Evaluation of the Immunological Activities of Commercially Available Beta 1, 3 Glucans" authored by Doctor Vaclav Vetvicka, PhD, Professor at the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. Doctor Vetvicka tested a large variety of immune support products. The study also included a large variety of other products claimed to support proper immune system support function.

Doctor Vetvicka used a wide variety of biological reactions to identify the immune enhancing effects of the various products tested. These tests were;

  • Phagocytosis
  • Surface markers on splenocytes
  • Cytokine synthesis
  • Stimulation of antibody response

Phagocytosis[1] is the engulfing and ingestion of bacteria or other foreign body invaders by phagocytes. Phagocytes are the white blood cells of the immune system who's primary responsibility is to destroy diseased cells or invaders in our body.

Phagocytosis is a primary response of the innate immune system of the body. Without proper and effective Phagocytosis we would succumb to disease and/or infection.

Splenocytes are spleen cells (e.g. lymphocytes, granulocytes, other immune cells). These cells play an important role in regulation of immune responses, including CD4 and CD8. The amount of surface markers helps determine immune response characteristics.

Cytokine are a non-antibody proteins produced by leukocytes and non-leukocytic cells that can be a "communication line" between cells and can influence the behavior of cells in the generation of an immune response. Cytokines include interleukins, lymphokines and cell signal molecules, such as tumor necrosis factor and the interferons. They can trigger inflammation and respond to infections. They help regulate the immune system. The quicker Cytokines are synthesized the more effective the response rate of the immune system to a threat upon it.

A antibody is a product of the immune system that helps the immune system recognize and fight infections and other invaders in the body. The faster the response of antibodies to an infection or invader the more effective the immune system response will be against it.

Many products that claim to support proper immune system function do not even provide proof of their actual claim. Others use a single test result to make the claim, usually the rate of increase of Natural Killer Cells, which is a single component of the immune system. This theory is flawed because it is only looking at one response characteristic. The immune system is a complex system comprising of many components.

A proper test to establish effective immune support would be to review more then one component for immune system response. These are the tests that were performed at the University of Louisville and a wide variety of immune system support products.

The independent test results showed that Transfer Point Beta glucan products out performed all the competitors. To review the results of this independent test on beta glucan and other products click here.
