Beta glucan is a soluble fiber that helps improve cholesterol, heart health, and blood sugar levels. Beta-Glucan. Beta-glucans are defined chemically as linear molecules of beta-1, 3-and beta-1,4-linked d-glucopyranose units that are associated with cell wall. Beta glucan is a scientifically proven biological response modifier (BRM) that nutritionally potentiates, modulates and helps normalize the immune response.
