Beta glucan along with Ionized Alkaline Water, were the foundation of the program that enabled my successful recovery from Stage IV non-Hodgkin's T-cell lymphoma... and my continued good health. (In the interest of full disclosure, I began offering these two products commercially after my recovery to get back to making a living). This is the best combination of products and protocols that I know for anyone who wants to maintain optimum health or needs to recover their good health.
Backed by over 30 years of Medical Research, Beta-1, 3-D glucan has proven to be the most Effective Immune System Enhancer available...
Beta-1, 3-D glucan works by Sensitizing your Immune Cells know as Macrophages. This Macrophage activation begins the whole "Cascade of Immune System Response" (NK Killer Cells; Interferon, Interleukin etc.) that Allows You to Enjoy:
- A MAXIMUM IMMUNE RESPONSE: Stimulates your Immune System to work at 100% of its potential.
- THE MOST APPROPRIATE IMMUNE RESPONSE: Allows your body to aggressively attack "non self" (tumors etc.) but accurately identify "self" - *Very effective in helping with auto-immune diseases.*
- Lupus is an autoimmune condition, as is diabetes. You are getting an inappropriate response from your immune system that is not being accurate about recognizing what is "self" and "non-self" (foreign threats bacteria, virus, cancer cells etc.)
- PROTECTION AGAINST RADIATION: Beta glucan is natural radioprotective compound (X-rays, mammograms, airline travel, power lines, computer terminals, UV rays).
- INCREASED REPAIR AND REGENERATION OF DAMAGED TISSUE: You recover more quickly from injury or exercise.
- INCREASED EFFECTIVENESS OF ANTIBIOTICS, ANTIFUNGALS AND ANTIPARASITICS: Improves you Health... and, Saves you money.
- BETTER RECOGNITION AND DESTRUCTION OF MUTATED CELLS: Your immune system is what protects you from Cancer and other disease.
- A POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT EFFECT: Your body more efficiently scavenges Free Radical Activity.
- NO ADVERSE SIDE EFFECTS: Compatible with pharmacological drugs. Has a G.R.A.S. rating from the FDA - no known toxicity at any dose.
"Glucan was found to be an effective drug in inducing macrophage-mediated destruction in malignant lesions in animals and humans." P. Mansell, M.D. McGill Univ. Cancer Research Center.
Transfer Point offers the purest and best quality Beta-1, 3-D glucan available at the most affordable price. It is the one I used during my recovery (and am still using). This along with the Ionized Alkaline Water, and a few other things, is one of the most important items in my personal "program".
Over 30 years of Research has shown that a highly purified beta glucan is safe. NO HARM has ever been demonstrated by these doses. Not One Single Study, that has passed the scrutiny of scientific peer review, has been published that indicates that the micro-doses of 3-20 mg could possibly be effective for humans.
Take your Beta glucan all at once, first thing in the morning, with nothing to eat or drink for 30 min. I found the best way for me is to keep my Beta glucan bottle on the bathroom counter along with a glass of water and take them as soon as I get up (or if I get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom; I take it then).
I hope this is of help.
Synergy Of Vitamin C and Beta Glucan on Killing Cancer
Very recent discoveries have been made on combined use of glucan and vitamin C derivatives. Intracellular ascorbate content in phagocyting cells reaches 40 times the level of plasma ascorbates. Macrophages activated with beta-1,3-D-glucan exhibit a significant drop in the intracellular ascorbate content. This might lead to the exhaustion of free-radical scavenging capacity of these cells, as well as to impaired motility and certain enzyme production by macrophages.
There are products on the market now that combine beta-1,3-D-glucan and vitamin C derivatives to replenish ascorbate levels in the glucan-activated macrophages. This is not only physiological from the standpoint of glucan pharmacological effects, but it also seems to have a great impact on results of Vitamin C treatments.

Induction of apoptosis in human prostatic cancer cells with beta-glucan.
Fullerton SA, Samadi AA et al, Department of Urology, New York Medical College, Valhalla, New York. [Medline record in process]
Purpose: To explore more effective treatment for hormone-refractory prostate cancer, we investigated the potential antitumor effect of beta-glucan, a polysaccharide of the Maitake mushroom, on prostatic cancer cells in vitro.
Materials and Methods: Human prostate cancer PC-3 cells were treated with various concentrations of the highly purified beta-glucan preparation Grifron-D(R) (GD), and viability was determined at 24 h.
Results: A dose-response study showed that almost complete (>95%) cell death was attained in 24 h with GD >/= 480 &mgr;g/mL. Combinations of GD in a concentration as low as 30 to 60 &mgr;g/mL with 200 &mgr;M vitamin C were as effective as GD alone at 480 &mgr;g/mL, inducing >90% cytotoxic cell death. simultaneous use with various anticancer drugs showed little potentiation of their efficacy except for the carmustine/GD combination (approximately 90% reduction in cell viability). The significantly (twofold) elevated LPO level and positive ISH staining of GD-treated cells indicated oxidative membrane damage resulting in apoptotic cell death.
Conclusion: A bioactive &be;-glucan from the Maitake mushroom has a cytotoxic effect, presumably through oxidative stress, on prostatic cancer cells in vitro, leading to apoptosis. Potentiation of GD action by vitamin C and the chemosensitizing effect of GD on carmustine may also have clinical implications. Therefore, this unique mushroom polysaccharide may have great a potential as an alternative therapeutic modality for prostate cancer.

Dr. Fukumi Morishige, M.D., Ph.D., a renowned Japanese surgeon and a member of the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine, explained that vitamin C reduces the high molecular weight of mushroom polysaccharides (beta glucans) and that, as the vitamin C breaks up these sugars, their viscosity or stickiness drops and bio availability increases, thus rendering more accessibility to immune system cells, such as macrophages and N-killer cers. Therefore, it is suggested that vitamin C will be taken together with Grifron especially for the people suggested to take large doses of Grifron.
