Yeast Beta Glucan is a type of dietary fibre extracted from the cell walls of edible yeast. Studies have shown significant benefits to immunity from consuming this yeast. This has been approved by the Ministry of Health Malaysia.

 

How does it support immunity?

1. Strengthens the immune system (1,2)
Helps improve the function of immune cells, by quickening its’ reaction to destroy potential pathogens.

2. Acts as an Antioxidant (3)
Helps neutralize free radicals and reduces cellular damage.

3. Has anti-infection effect (4)
Protects against pathogenic bacteria and viral infections by inhibiting their growth.

Other Immune-Supporting Ingredients


Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and Inulin (5,6)


• A soluble fibre that acts as a prebiotic

• Aids digestion by increasing the number of good intestinal bacteria

• Helps maintain a good intestinal environment, which is favorable to improving immunity

 

Vitamin C (7,8)


• A potent water-soluble antioxidant

• Enhances the production of immune cells that helps protect the body against infections

• Supports the production and activity of antibodies in the body
