B-Glucan receptors have been identified on the surfaces of immune cells. These naturally occurring substances have been shown to provide protection against infection and are known to activate the entire immune system. B-Glucans induce innate and adaptive immune response. The initial response, which occurs via the innate immune response, primarily involves phagocytic cells. B-Glucans interact with the mucosal immune system including the intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes and Peyer's patches, inducing cytokine production and increasing resistance to infection.The response of the adaptive immune system involves production of antibodies against specific substances by B lymphocytes.Clinical studies demonstrate that B-Glucans improved overall physical health and reduced incidence, and in some cases, the duration of upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) symptoms. In a randomized, placebo controlled study, 100 healthy individuals who took 250 mg of B-Glucan daily reported an 18% reduction in the number of days with cold and flu symptoms compared to the placebo group. Another study on wildland firefighters demonstrated that B-Glucan supplementation may help to suppress URTI symptoms and increase perceptions of overall health.The relationship between stress and decreased immune function is well established. Increased susceptibility and episodes of URTI and the common cold may result from psychological stress. In a clinical study, healthy women with moderate levels of stress, taking 250 mg B-Glucan, reported fewer URTI symptoms and improved psychological wellbeing. In another clinical study with 150 individuals with high to moderate lifestyle stress, participants taking 250 mg B-Glucan experienced significant improvements in symptoms and overall health and wellness.Strenuous exercise may lead to increased susceptibility to upper respiratory symptoms. Clinical studies demonstrate that B-Glucan can strengthen the immune defences. In a study of marathon runners, those taking 250 mg of B-Glucan, fewer reported symptoms associated with cold symptoms when compared to a placebo group. A placebo-controlled, double blind study conducted on 75 marathon runners taking 250 mg or 500 mg B-Glucan daily, for 4 weeks post marathon demonstrated that B-Glucan significantly reduced upper respiratory tract symptoms and improved the psychological wellbeing of participants.Infections, especially upper respiratory tract infections are common in early childhood because of developing lungs and immune systems. A double-blind randomized study in children aged 3-4 years found those consuming a formula consisting of B-Glucan had fewer acute respiratory tract infections compared to those consuming unfortified cow's milk-based beverages. A further study done on 174 children between the ages of 1 - 4 years demonstrated that B-Glucan could decrease the incidence of common childhood infectious illness episodes.Indications:Immuenza kids may assist in maintenance of the immune system.Interactions:No known interactions have been established.
