1-3 B-D Beta Glucans

(1 ---≥ 3) - β - D Beta Glucans
 
Beta Glucans are the "biomass"  of the fungal / mold spore shell. While Beta Glucans alone are not known to cause disease, they are an inflammatory to the human body and human tissue especially the lungs. Beta Glucans have been known to be delivered into the human body as fine and ultra-fine (< 2,5 microns) particulates that can stick to the lining of the lungs, pass through the lungs directly into the blood stream, or are passed through the Ethmoid Sinus into the brain. The danger of the Beta Glucan is three fold:
 
1. If the species of fungi which produced the Beta Glucan was pathogenic, those pathogens are trapped in the Beta Glucan and harbor themselves within the human body and slowly leach           their bio-toxins into the body. Since they are nonsoluable and fibrous they tend to stay in body tissue for an extended period of time, even years, leaching their toxins logged in the liver, kidneys, and fatty tissues of the body.
 
2. The Beta Glucans  as an inflammatory can also be responsible for environmentally onset Asthma, COPD and other respiratory related illness.
 
3. Beta Glucans are documented as "trigger" mechanisms for certain proteins that cause disease and adverse health effects in humans and animals.
