Beta Glucan: Nature’s Secret
Dr. Vetvicka, at the School of Medicine in Louisville, Kentucky, has written numerous articles based on well-documented scientific studies revealing how beta glucan enables the immune system to fortify over the invasion of detrimental cells to the body. Specific reference is made to its effect on blood sugar, cancer and the flu. He now compiles years of these studies in his book allowing the public to gain in-depth knowledge of how these results were obtained.
The history and foremost origins of glucans are comprehensively presented, and emphasis on how the use of this natural remedy is vital in our ever-changing environment. The body’s ability to combat old and newly-developing diseases is becoming one of the biggest challenges we, as a society, have today. Discover how beta glucan can be a “solution” to overcoming these challenges.
Dr. Vetvicka speaks of the different types of glucans available on the market. Research reveals that beta glucans differ widely in physicochemical and biological properties. He offers scientific presentations of the various natural sources and differing biological activity of B-glucans. Some have no biological activities at all. He emphasizes why choosing the correct glucan, dosage, and administration is vital to optimally affect the human immune system.
An overview of how the immune system works, how it has evolved over the years, and how taxed it is in these times of mounting stress and decaying environmental conditions are presented. You will learn the basic principles of the immune system and the key to staying healthy. Learn how the cells in every single organ of our body monitor their surroundings for anything foreign and detrimental to our health. You will be made aware that infection is not the only problem we must address. Today, a number of negative influences contribute to the impairment of defense mechanisms; i.e., polluted environment, persistent stress, poor nutrition and/or lifestyle, various types of radiation, and the overuse of antibiotics.
Dr. Vetvicka also explains that although new cells from bone marrow are steady throughout one’s entire life, the formation and migration of the newly formed cells are limited. He explains in detail how miraculously beta glucan stimulates the production of precursor cells in the bone marrow resulting in a more rapid flow of new immune cells into the bloodstream and various organs throughout the body.
He speaks of the effects glucans have on cancer, infection, inflammation and cholesterol. He explains how beta glucan treatment positively affects arthritis, fatigue from physical and psychological stress, wound healing, the overall condition of the skin, overcoming suppressed immune cells caused by radiation or chemotherapy, ulcerative colitis, and HIV.
