NutraQ markets Nutramunity™ Beta-Glucan (NBG®), a versatile immune health ingredient suitable for food, beverages and dietary supplements. Nutramunity™ can also be used as a cosmetic ingredient in personal care products.
Nutramunity™ is a beta-1,3/1,6-glucan, a potent and safe immune-enhancing component isolated from baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) that helps support healthy immune function.
Research has shown that baker’s yeast beta-1,3/1,6-glucan:
- Improves immune function (oral intake)
- Promotes healthy inflammatory response (oral intake)
- Supports mucosal immunity and promotes respiratory health (oral intake)
- Stimulates the skin’s ability to repair, renew and protect itself (topical application)
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines (topical application)
NBG® is the yeast beta-glucan with the longest history of use. A significant portion of today’s knowledge about the safety of yeast beta-1,3/1,6-glucan and its mode of action on the immune system has been obtained through studies with NBG®.
NBG® is naturally-derived, non-GMO, kosher and halal-certified, non-allergenic, GMP-produced, Informed-Sport® and Informed-Choice®-certified, and EU Novel Food-authorized. Yeast beta-1,3/1,6-glucan is GRAS for food use in the US.
