Right now I’m still comparing individual glucans to figure out which is the best and how to use it for school age children. Particularly from the countries where there is heavy pollution, their respiratory system is breaking down fully and glucan seems to be extremely active there. So right now I am doing all this. I am trying to help them just get back to normal regardless of how bad the situation of their location is. So that is something I am working on right now.
