Why are some Beta Glucans more Expensive?

There are numerous competing beta glucan products on the market. Most companies selling other beta glucan products provide great marketing and gimmicks, but lack the research needed to prove product efficacy. Due to their excellent marketing, these companies increase the price of their beta glucan products, which provides incredible profits, but yields no results for consumers. For example, we have a competing product that was found to be 16 times LESS effective than our Beta Glucan, which costs $27.99. However, you would need to purchase $447.84 worth of this particular product to achieve the same level of immune response as our Beta Glucan. The retail cost of our Beta Glucan is $69.95 with free shipping and handling. Please give us a call to learn more about our current specials!

When manufacturing Beta Glucan, it is undoubtedly cheaper to not purify the product at all. Many sellers of “Cheap Beta Glucan” are doing this; they are simply harvesting dead baker’s yeast. As far as the the commodity goes, it is not much good to the Baker if it doesn’t make bread rise. Historically, if you had yeast cell walls that were dead, they would recycle it into animal feed are they would use it as a “thickener.” Once it was determined that there was a “treasure” inside, companies found this yeast byproduct to produce a certain level of Biological Activity in regards to the Immune System. Now we know that the more “highly purified” the product is; the stripping away of the Fats, Proteins, Chitin, & Glycogen, the much more potential the material has to increase our Immunity. Therefore, the cheaper alternatives will actually strip your wallet of more money than buying the more expensive, more potent Transfer Point product initially.
