M-Gard® is a purified bioactive beta-1,3/1,6-glucan, a naturally occurring complex polysaccharide found in the cell walls of baker’s yeast.
M-Gard® is an immunomodulator that enhances your body’s vital defence mechanisms against pathogens such as bacteria, virus, fungus etc. Studies have shown that M-Gard® exert immunomodulatory effects in vitro and in vivo in experimental animal and human models. M-Gard® represent an excellent immune enhancing compound for human use.
The molecular structure and branching between the glucose molecules is essential for immune enhancing activity of beta-1,3/1,6-glucans, and this is what makes M-Gard® so potent compared to other types of glucan.
Biotec Pharmacon ASA has developed and patented processes for extracting the beta-1,3/1,6-glucan present in baker’s yeast without damaging the branching points or side chains, ensuring that the purified M-Gard® molecule retains its crucial bioactivity.
