How can Beta Glucan Help with Cancer if it is a Sugar?

To say that sugar feeds cancer is a little bit of an overreach, you have to define sugars of whether or not they are simple sugars or complex sugars. Complex sugars, or complex polysaccharides, are similar to fiber in that; they cannot be digested by the human body.

Certain pre-biotic bacteria however, do digest the complex carbohydrates; in the way of our compound, the peyer’s patches absorbs the Beta Glucan from the gut. The immune cells will then undergo phagocytosis: gobble up those tiny particles and slowly secrete a long-chain, water-soluble polysaccharide that binds to the CR3 receptor. After a period of several weeks, there may be a breakdown into simple sugars but that’s not like you biting into an Apple, or biting into a pineapple, or taken a drink of carrot juice; which are all heavily laden in simple sugars that breakdown into simple glucose, exacerbating issues with blood sugar and cancer.

Such is not the case for out product; in fact, our complex carbohydrate increases your fiber intake making it very healthy towards blood sugar and cardiovascular issues like cholesterol.
