Aliness Beta Glucan Yestimun® is a high-quality brewer's yeast extract commonly used to strengthen immunity and improve lipid profile.
Yestimun® is the patent-protected name of the production process of the highest quality beta-glucan. It encompasses many, rigorously monitored stages, thanks to which the obtained raw material is characterized by the highest purity and content of min. 85% of the active substance. What is more, beta-glucan Yestimun® is suitable for vegans and vegetarians and people on a gluten-free diet. The product also has a kosher and halal certification.
The main mechanism of beta-glucan activity that has made it highly popular is its effect on the lipid profile. Beta-glucans help to maintain proper blood cholesterol levels, which is crucial for the preservation of cardiovascular health. According to some sources, beta-glucan may also contribute to the lowering of blood sugar, which is also not without significance for people who care about the condition of the circulatory system.
The second pillar of beta-glucan activity, which is a taking point of various scientific studies, is its effect on the immune system. Current research indicates that it may stimulate the immune response, thereby promoting its effectiveness. The increasing number of publications confirming this assumption makes beta-glucan supplements eagerly used by people seeking additional immunity support.
However, it is worth highlighting one crucial issue that is indicated in scientific studies on beta-glucan. It naturally occurs in two isomers: 1,3-D/1,4-D (water-soluble, found in grains) and 1,3-D/1,6-D (insoluble in water, found in brewer’s yeast and mushrooms). Only the 1,3D/1,6-D isomer exerts effects on the immune system. In low-quality supplements, information about the contained isomer is not given. Beta-glucan Yestimun® is exclusively a 1,3-D/1,6-D isomer derived from brewer's yeast.
To sum up, Aliness Beta Glucan Yestimun® is a supplement produced under extremely stringent guidelines, distinguished by a high degree of purity of the composition and a large portion contained in each capsule.
The contents of the capsule can be mixed with the liquid, however, bear in mind that this will form a suspension (it will not dissolve).
Studies conducted by the manufacturer show that beta-glucan can also be taken with food. The contents of the capsule can, therefore, also be contained in functional foods, e.g. muesli bars.
Beta-glucan should not be used simultaneously with NSAIDs and acetylsalicylic acid, due to the high risk of gastrointestinal side effects.

Beta-glucans are natural polysaccharides, obtained mainly from cell walls of fungi and plants. Beta-glucans are long-chain polymers, the side chains of which are composed of glucose.
These polysaccharides are distinguished by immunostimulating and immunomodulating activity, which it owes mainly to the presence of leukocytes, monocytes and macrophages of beta-D-glucan receptors on the surface of cells. Beta-glucans are recognized by our immune system as stranger substances, which makes the recognition of the receptor by macrophages contribute to the activation of processes of incapacitating pathogens and the immune response.
Not all beta-glucans are characterized by such an ability. The ability to modulate immune functions are demonstrates mainly by glucans, which contain bonds at the position 1.3/1/6. Beta-glucans are available on our website both in the form of mono-preparations and in the composition of immunity boosting complexes, based on fungi extracts.
