Protect

The immune system is a network of cells that work to protect the body from invaders. Immune cells find and attack external threats to keep the body safe and healthy.

maintain the immune system

Maintain

Immune function can be affected by a number of factors, including diet, exercise, sleep, stress and hygiene. So, you're less likely to feel your best if you've been stressed out or sleeping less.

support the immune system

Support

Adding a supplement can support the body's immune function, helping consumers feel their best. BetaVia, Kemin's line of algae-based beta glucan ingredients, supports immune health.

Types of Beta Glucan

types of beta glucans, algae, yeast, oat, barley, cellulose

The chemical structure and insolubility of beta-glucan from whole algae Euglena gracilis benefit immune health since immune cells may recognize (1,3) linkages and be primed by the beta glucan. The structure and insolubility of (1,3)(1,6) beta glucan from yeast also benefits immune health.

You may also be familiar with other types of beta glucan that support other functions in the body. The structure and solubility of (1,3)(1,4) beta glucan in oat benefit heart health by binding and removing cholesterol from the body. The structure and insolubility of (1,4) beta glucan, called cellulose, is found in plants high in dietary fiber and supports bowel health.2-5
