What does Viridian Beta Glucan do?
While Beta Glucan has gained a lot of press as a Cholesterol controlling nutrient, when taken orally they are thought to help the Body defend itself from viral and bacterial invaders. Beta glucans are also recommended to those individuals, whose bodies have been weakened by physical & emotional Stress, chronic Fatigue syndrome, or by radiation treatments.
Vitamin C vs Vitamin D for the Immune System:
A healthy diet supported with supplemental nutrition has been recognised as an important factor in the protection from viral infections. Deficiencies or suboptimal status in micronutrients negatively affect immune function and can decrease resistance to infections.
As nutrients go, both vitamin C and Vitamin D are something of a powerhouse and essential for keeping your immune system healthy. Vitamin C is proven to support the body in fighting off pathogens like Cold & Flu, while vitamin D is needed by every immune cell to function. Although widespread in food, populations that follow the western diet can be deficient in vitamin C because it is a highly fragile nutrient that denatures in response to light, chopping and cooking. Vitamin D is difficult to consume sufficient amounts of the nutrient through dietary sources, and is usually transformed from unprotected sun exposure in the UK, during summer periods.
Why do Viridian Beta Glucan Capsules contain a buffered form of vitamin C?
Viridian Beta Glucan Capsules contain a buffered form of vitamin C to help avoid gastrointestinal discomfort, which can be caused by the acidity of standard ascorbic acid.
How does zinc help the immune system?
Zinc plays an important and complementary role in supporting both the innate and adaptive immune systems. Deficiencies or sub-optimal status in zinc can negatively affect immune function and decrease resistance to infections.
