The uses of beta-glucan in cosmetics

Do you know the properties of beta-glucan (β-glucan) for skincare? Behind this name, we find a polysaccharide or carbohydrate formed by the union of several glucose molecules. Beta-glucans are part of the cell walls of bacteria, yeasts, fungi, algae, and cereals such as oats. They are biologically active, increase the immune defense of the host. They have a protective effect against carcinogens and can inhibit tumor growth. Among its benefits for the skin, soothing effect, increasing softness and maintaining the optimum degree of hydration. In another article, we talked about The Health Benefits of Beta-glucans. Today we tell you more details about the properties of

How is Yeast Beta Glucan Been Made?

β-glucan, homopolymers of glucose, are found abundantly in various microorganisms, mushrooms, and plants. These β-glucan are of the high value of attention because of their bioactivity and medicinal benefits. Multiple studies show that β-glucan have the potential to enhance the immune system. However, the β-glucan from different sources have different modulating effects. It depends upon the primary chemical structure of β-glucan. One crucial source of β-glucan is yeast, especially baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). The yeast-derived β-glucan, (1,3)-β-linked with small chains of (1,6)-β-linked side chains, are known for their immune-modulating effect (Chan et al., 2009).  The extraction of yeast β-glucan is an

How to check the quality of yeast beta-glucan?

The beta-glucan derived from different sources have different molecular structures, which result in different immune activities. For example, the yeast beta1,3/1,6-D-glucanase has a unique molecular structure, especially the ratio of beta-1,6-glycosidic bonds to the total number of glycosidic bonds. This molecular structure makes it easy to recognized quickly by immune cell receptors, which results in efficient immune cell regulation (Danielson et al., 2010). Mainstream testing methods in the world It is important to test the quality of beta-glucan in yeast. Usually, the contents of beta-glucan determined the quality of yeast beta-glucan. Generally, the beta-glucan with high content has better quality.

Can Yeast β-glucan fight COVID-19?

The emergence of the novel coronavirus SARS-Cov-2, which causes severe respiratory infections, is the primary concern of public health worldwide. The majority of the coronaviruses infect animals, but they can evolve into strains that infect humans. In the context of the COVID-19 outbreak, a particular interest developed to find the solutions to COVID-19. From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the doctors advise us to reduce the exposure and take care of ourselves if we get infected. These are some essential tips, but we need to focus on the immune system. It is critical to boosting the immune system if

Yeast beta β-glucans in Animal health

Keywords: Yeast β-glucans, Animal immunity, β-glucans feeds, antibiotic alternatives, Ruminants The livestock industry or local dairy farmers are looking for alternatives to the use of antibiotics. They are searching for supplements to enhance growth, performance, and animal health. Generally, livestock producers use antibiotics to minimize the impact of these diseases on animals. However, antibiotic use is a severe public concern as their residual presence in meat and other dairy products. Furthermore, antibiotic resistance is continuously developing in pathogenic bacteria.Additionally, antibiotics cause environmental pollution, which is harmful to both animals and humans. However, the use of antibiotics for growth promotion is
