Before you begin the hunt for the cheapest Beta Glucan product out there, you have to know that not all glucans are created equal and not all sources are equal. Glucans can widely differ in physiochemical and biological properties. Some glucans have no biological activity whatsoever. No other beta glucan can match the effectiveness that makes Transfer Point’s Glucan 300® the most respected name in immune support. This is why it is so important to do your own research so you l which one is the best.
After reviewing the literature, we are confident that Transfer Point’s active ingredient, Glucan 300, is hands down the most effective dietary supplement for a healthy immune system on the market.
The Transfer Point Beta Glucan is cited as the best on the market by The Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association. Transfer Point manufacturing process is unmatched.
The large 2008 JANA study showed that Transfer Point Beta Glucan has the highest proven immunological benefits: Eight (8) times more effective than any mushroom based Beta glucan, including the prescription products (PSK Krestin) used thought out Asia, and 160x more effective than many of the popular Internet products being sold.
2010 Open Glycoscience had the most comprehensive study done on Immune System Supplements. Compared top 16 Immune Supplements in the world. Immutol, Maitake Gold, PSK Krestin, Wellmune, etc. Transfer Point’s Glucan #300 was found to have the highest biological activity and it was not even close. 8x more immune response than the 2nd place Immune supplement. It is hands down the best immune system supplement in the world.
Purity and testing
Every single batch of Transfer Point's ingredients is tested twice: when it’s first made, and then again when it is ready to be encapsulated or mixed in a formula. This ensures that the ingredient has not degraded, and that it has retained complete purity and full potency.
Glucan 300® is purified to strip away all the fats, proteins, chitin, & Glycogen, resulting in the purest beta glucan in the world yielding a final product containing a minimum of 83% Beta 1,3D Glucan but more often than not comes in at 90%.
Our Glucan 300® is sourced in the USA from Transfer Point. Only our bottles look different in Canada.

The use of glucan particles as a delivery system for vaccines is a viable option based on the documented efficient antigen loading and receptor-targeted uptake in antigen-presenting cells. In addition to particles, soluble glucans can be used as novel hydrogels or as direct immunocyte-targeting delivery systems employing novel complexes with oligodeoxynucleotides. This review focuses on recent advances in glucan-based vaccine development from glucan-based conjugates to a glucan-based delivery and adjuvant platform.
