Polysaccharides containing D-glucose as the only monomer are commonly referred to as D-glucans.  Starches, Glycogen and Cellulose are chemically ‘glucans’; but the glucose molecules are 1,4-linked and are not the immuno-stimulant type of “glucans”.
The immunostimulatory b-glucans however, are those in which the glucose molecules are 1,3-linked, and are commonly known as b-glucans.  When the b-1,3-linkage glucose molecules have branches attached in position 6 of the glucose in the backbone chain, they are defined as the b-1,3/1,6-D-glucans. These glucans exist in foods such as oats, barley, and some medicinal mushrooms but the NOW Foods’ product is derived from the cell walls of Baker’s Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae).

Polysaccharide tests have been designed to distinguish between the different types of glucose linkages, and therefore make it possible to identify the type of glucan in question.  NOW Foods utilizes such testing to ensure its customers are receiving the immuno-stimulatory b-glucan with the appropriate activity

This product contains Beta-1,3/1,6-D-Glucan (Beta-Glucan) is a bioactive carbohydrate derived from the cell wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, commonly known as Bakers' yeast.  Scientific studies have shown that Beta-Glucan supports immune function through its ability to stimulate macrophage activity.  NOW Beta-Glucan is blended into a synergistic base of Maitake Mushrooms for added power.*
