Beta Glucan-Roger Mason
For those of you who have not read my booklet What Is Beta Glucan?, you can read it for free at www.youngagain.org. This is the only book on beta glucan in the world, and completely documented with published, international clinical studies. Very simply, this is THE most powerful immune enhancer known to science, either prescription or non-prescription. That includes the medical hoax interferon alpha. Nothing does more to boost your immune system than this extract of oats, barley, yeast, or mushrooms. You already eat beta glucan every day, only not enough to help you. It is only in the last few years that technology has allowed us to make powerful and inexpensive beta glucan supplements. You will see many beta glucan products out there, and most of them are weak and very overpriced with ridiculous claims about why theirs is the "best" or the "most effective". Ours is $9.95 for 60 X 400 mg.
The international scientific published literature is full of impressive studies on the power of beta glucan internally and topically. In the last ten years these studies have increased greatly. One good study was published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition (vol. 55, 2001) from the University of Lausanne in Switzerland. Real humans were given oral beta glucan supplements along with their regular meals. Very sophisticated tests were done to monitor their blood sugar, insulin, fatty acids, and other parameters. In only three days insulin levels fell an amazing 26%! Their cells were responding more efficiently to the normal production of insulin. Glucose levels dropped a dramatic 12%! This means if you had a high glucose level of 100 that three days later it would drop down to a normal level of 88. Taking this is very important to avoid blood sugar and insulin disorders, or treating ones you already suffer from. Fasting blood sugar should be 85 or less.
In 2021 we now have water soluble beta glucan. This means we will soon have eye drops, mouthwash, douches, scalp treatments and other products.
In 2021 water soluble beta glucan is available, but very expensive ($800 kg). It is known as sodium carboxyl methyl beta glucan. This is a huge breakthough, as regular glucan is not water soluble at all. This means you can make eyedrops, mouthwash, douches, scalp treatments, and other such things. Eyedrops are already selling in Europe. This will open a whole new vista in beta glucan therapy.
People of all ages should take beta glucan to keep their immunity strong. Your pets, too. If you simply add oats and barley to your diet you don’t need to take a supplement. Eating just a small bowl of oatmeal or granola or steamed barley will add GRAMS of beta glucan. Why won’t people in America eat barley?
