What does “Beta-1, 3D Glucan” mean or signify?

Most people refer to our product as “Beta Glucan.” However, the full name of the product, “Beta 1 3D Glucan” is the full scientific name, which refers to the linkage and bonding of the molecule. There are competing beta glucans with the same or similar name, however, this name in particular has nothing to do with the purity or effectiveness of a beta glucan product. The patented name of our product is Glucan 300 (shown on back of label). This is how you know you’re getting the best immune system product on the market!

If you remember I was saying that it‘s like a string of beans that’s a chain of the molecule, but it almost always is in a kind of branching and depending on how it is branched and where the chemical binds are, its either in position 3 or 6 is why it is called 1, 3 or 1-6 is how it is bound together.
