Beta glucan is a complex molecule of polysaccharides most commonly obtained from the cell yeast walls (Saccharomyce scerevisiae), and in nature it can also be found in some edible mushrooms (reishi, chaga, shiitake, maitake), cereals (oats and barley) and certain algae species.
In general, beta glucans strengthen the body’s first “line of defense.”

Beta-glucans are structural homopolysaccharides from the cell walls of fungi and yeasts, but also cereals (oats and barley) from which they can be isolated. Chemically, the backbone of the linear structure of beta-glucan polymers consists of monomers of D-glucose molecules, interconnected by specific beta-1,3 / 1,6-glycosidic bonds. Therefore, beta-glucans can be more accurately called beta-1,3 / 1,6- (D) -glucans.
In general, beta-1,3 / 1,6-glucans strengthen the body’s first “line of defense”. Namely, their main biological immunomodulatory action is based on the stimulation of the activity of innate immunity factors. Activation of macrophages is definitely a key moment in the activation of innate nonspecific immune factors. This activation is achieved by binding beta-glucans to several specific macrophage receptors.
Activated macrophages have an increased ability to detect, recognize and destroy pathogens.
In addition to stimulating phagocytosis, beta-glucans also have the ability to stimulate hematopoiesis. Increased hematopoiesis includes stimulation of leukocyte and platelet production.
Purification, ie the removal of mannoproteins and lipids from the yeast cell wall during the production process, is one of the imperatives for achieving increased bioavailability. The minimum requirements for adequate efficacy of beta glucan are considered to be the degree of purity and extraction and purification to a minimum of 70-85% beta glucan.
It is recommended to take 1 to 3 capsules a day, preferably half an hour before meals. With preventive use, it is possible to use beta glucans in adults for a longer period of time. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for an increased daily dose.
People taking medication should consult a doctor before taking it. Not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women.
Oleuropein is the most active medicinal compound from olive leaves responsible for the bitterness of the fruit and to which it is mainly associated with therapeutic action. The compounds present in olive leaves are generally considered to strengthen the immune system, and many scientific papers attribute various biological effects to oleuropein – antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, cytotoxic.
Scientists list as many as 126 pathological microorganisms that cannot resist the action of compounds present in olive leaf extract, many of which have already become resistant to antibiotics.
yes! In a document published in 2011 (EFSA Journal 2011; 9 (4): 2033), the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) confirmed the effect of oleuropein and olive leaf extract on preventing the oxidation of LDL (low-density lipoprotein, so-called bad cholesterol). ) which is associated with the formation of plaques on the walls of blood vessels.
Also, today the olive leaf is one of the few herbal remedies that has been clinically tested in the treatment of hypertension.
Turmeric has a rich history in India as a spice, preservative and colorant, and has been used for centuries in the highly regarded Eastern medicine, Ayurveda where its effects are well documented as a natural remedy. The characteristic intense yellow color is defined by curcumin, an active ingredient from the group of curcuminoids, which is attributed to strong anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial and antioxidant effects. Turmeric, with its active ingredient, curcumin, has been the subject of more than 13,000 published biomedical studies that have studied the effects of curcumin on various inflammations, arthritis, various forms of cancer, neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and stroke.
At the molecular level, curcuminoids have shown the ability to inhibit nuclear kappa factor B (NF-κB), a transcription factor that induces and triggers various inflammations. NF-κB is involved in a variety of chronic diseases and conditions ranging from cardiovascular disease to cancer. Curcuminoids have significant antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, support a healthy immune system and inhibit destructive enzymes in joints and tissues (Aggarwal B. Et al. (2006). Turmeric: The Genus Curcuma. Pp 297-368).
The most rated and clinically most tested curcumin brand on the market – more than 85 scientific publications and clinical research.
Best safety data – the only curcumin on the market that has been reviewed and recognized by the US FDA for GRAS status (Generally Recognized As Safe).
Most patented curcumin – has patents that cover the composition of curcuminoids, method of production and use.
The most consistent in quality – C3 Complex contains a continuous composition in the same proportions in each series for all 3 curcuminoids as for the black pepper extract, BioPerine®.
Multiple proven bioavailability.
