Beta-glucan is thought to have immune stimulating effects as well as the ability to activate certain cells and proteins that attack cancerous cells. It can also fight viruses, inhibit tumour growth, prevent the development of cancer in normal cells and lower blood sugar and blood pressure. Beta-glucan also reduces the immunosuppressive affect of mercury.
NOTE: Foods containing beta-glucan may interfere with anti-diabetes drugs because of its ability to decrease blood sugar.
