Boost Your Sagging Immune System
With This Sugar
April 11th, 2012 by Holly Cornish
If you want to prevent cancer or greatly improve your chances of recovery from an existing cancer, you need to know about a type of sugar called Beta glucans.
Beta glucan supplements are one of the pillars of the cancer-fighting plan in How to Cure Almost Any Cancer at Home for $5.15 a Day, the Special Report by my good friend Bill Henderson. Here’s why Bill and many other experts are so enthusiastic about this supplement. . .

Shocked doctors were forced to eat crow
after their patients tried
The 31-Day Home Cancer Cure
“Congratulations! You’re cancer free!” declared Rev. Cobus Rudolph’s doctor after Rev. Rudolph used the secrets found in The 31-Day Home Cancer Cure to get rid of his “hopeless” stage four colon cancer.
“You’re a miracle from God!” said Richard Wiebe’s doctor after he used the same secrets found in The 31-Day Home Cancer Cure to get rid of so-called “terminal” brain cancer.
“Are you the terminal patient I saw two months ago? You look great!” That’s what Kevin Irish’s doctor exclaimed after Kevin used these secrets to get rid of his stage four lung cancer.
“Well, I know the cancer is here somewhere!” That’s what Frank Woll’s doctor said when he couldn’t find the cancer with a magnifying glass. A month before, the doc had said they’d have to cut off half of Frank’s ear and part of his neck!
These four men got TOTALLY WELL with the secrets of The 31-Day Home Cancer Cure. Watch this important video presentation and see for yourself.
These proven immunity-boosters are long-chain polysaccharides (aka, complex sugars). They’re found in the cell walls of bacteria, yeasts, fungi, and plants like oats or barley. You can also find them in several medicinal mushrooms, like maitake. The supplement is an entirely natural extract from these plants or microorganisms.
Beta glucans have had a good reputation as an alternative treatment for decades, but nowadays they’re gaining ground as a treatment in allopathic clinics. They’re also being used to treat several ailments beyond cancer, including high cholesterol and diabetes.
But the biggest advantage Beta glucans offer is their ability to strengthen the immune system. They’re considered particularly effective in cases of weakened immunity, such as from stress or chronic fatigue.
For cancer sufferers, Beta glucans make a significant difference if your immunity levels are sagging following treatments like chemotherapy and radiation.
30 years of scrutiny bode well
Beta glucan can be administered several different ways. Healthcare providers may give beta glucans by IV or by an injection directly into your muscle if the goal is to treat cancer. The supplement may also be given as a shot under the skin at the site of a skin tumor, the goal being to reduce the size of the tumor.
Otherwise, it can be taken as a food additive. You can sprinkle it on your salad or dessert, or just take it as a pill or capsule. Some supplement makers claim Beta glucans are best absorbed when taken by mouth because the particles of the supplement are “micronized” to a size smaller than one micron, but we’re still waiting on evidence that supports that claim.
As to whether Beta glucan as an immunity booster can be trusted, the answer is yes. Researchers have scrutinized the treatment for over thirty years, especially as it relates to the immune system and its effect on cancer. In Japan, extracts with various portions of Beta glucan have been used to treat cancer patients for the last 20 years.
How Beta glucan mobilizes your immune system
Here’s how it works: If cancer or cancer treatments have compromised your immune system, Beta glucans task themselves with getting you back up and running. It’s believed that Beta glucans — especially when given through injection — can stimulate the immune system by boosting chemicals that fight infections and foreign invaders like cancer.
It appears to work by prodding your white blood cells into action. Receptors from your immune cells fit together with the Beta glucan proteins like a lock and key system. This “fit” seems to activate your white blood cells, which triggers a cascading immune response, including stronger resistance to foreign invaders and the production of new immune cells.
When I say “cascading response” I meant Beta glucan seems to set off a chain reaction of good events, similar to one falling domino toppling a whole row of dominoes.
The treatment has also been credited with increasing survival from cancer, including advanced cancer (though in such cases, Beta glucans need to be given over the long-term, at least over the course of a year).
It’s clear that Beta glucans are an asset when it comes to battling cancer. They may not be a direct killing tool for cancer cells, but they are definitely among the tools worth adding to your arsenal of support.
Where to find the most potent variety
The good news is that Beta glucan supplements are easy to get a hold of these days, thanks to improvements in manufacturing. In other words, they’re much more affordable than in the past.
So if you take Beta glucan outside a healthcare environment (that is, injection or IV treatment is not a prospect), then the best approach is to buy it in supplement form. Pill sizes typically range up to 500 mg. An “average” dose would be 1500 mg a day (one pill with each meal). Many advocates of Beta glucan believe it works most effectively in conjunction with a healthy diet (what doesn’t?)
At this point, no side effects have been reported. But I have a caveat on that one: When I take it I get really wired — hyper during the day and not able to sleep well at night. Whether my response is typical, I can’t say.
Beta glucan as a manufactured supplement usually comes from baker’s yeast, which is regarded as safe by the FDA. There also aren’t any known conflicts between Beta glucan and other medications.
Some supplements that offer Beta glucan get their extract from mushrooms or cereal grains (or both). But many advocates believe Beta glucan extracted from yeast is the most potent form you can get. The main difference appears to be that mushroom-based Beta glucan is absorbed in the stomach while yeast-based Beta glucan is absorbed through the intestines.
Of the two, mushroom-based Beta glucan has been in use for a much longer period of time than yeast, and is the form commonly found throughout Asia as a cancer treatment.
Ensure that your cancer will not recur
Beta glucan doesn’t kill cancer cells directly, so it’s worth looking into other treatments that directly attack cancer cells. But if you want to support your immune system so it’s better able to do the work it takes to get rid of cancer, then this is something worth trying.
Cancer can’t thrive if your immune system is strong. Plus, without support for your immune system, there’s a greater chance your cancer will resurface — even years after you’ve been declared “cancer-free.” There’s really no downside to using a supplement like this, particularly since it works fine in combination with other alternative therapies, and even with conventional therapies.
I recommend looking into it, since the upside to taking Beta glucan — that is, having a vibrant and powerful immune system — is tremendous.
