MG Beta Glucan - 10 mg
The extra strength microparticulate MG Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan in NSC-100™ nutritionally delivers maximum potency and superior potentiation of the immune system. The result is faster response and effectiveness in nutritionally enabling the body to fight back to good health when compromised or hyper (allergies).
An October 2002 peer-reviewed article in "Letters in Applied Microbiology" concludes nonaggregated microparticulate beta glucan (MG glucan) in 10 mg doses has "superior immune potentiation characteristics."
MG Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan extracted from yeast cell wall by a U.S. Patented process (6,476,003) with no harmful yeast proteins, is a proven and safe natural immune response potentiator based on extensive scientific research.
The MG Beta Glucan in NSC-100 is micronized to an extremely small microparticulate particle size and processed to assure non-aggregation, to provide greater ingestion and nutritional immune potentiation by the macrophages. The macrophages are the primary white immune cells that fight health invaders such as fungi, viruses, bacteria and parasites.
Beta Glucan is proven to nutritionally empower the immune response to nutritionally fight back against the negative effects of radiation and free radical damage to our arteries, skin and cells. The MG Beta Glucan in NSC-100 also is a powerful “adjuvant,” or substance that makes other formulations, including antibiotics, more effective in smaller doses when ingested together (www.betaglucan.org has research under the "adjuvant" category). And now NSC-100 IMMUNITION contains a potent and natural prebiotic, Inulin - instead of less effective substances.
The MG Beta Glucan in NSC-100 has enhanced antioxidant properties, but no anti-oxidant negatives, in 10mg capsules. Extremely large dosages are not necessary for this incredible product that nutritionally supports well-being and a quality as well as extended life by potentiating the immune response to successfully fight back against the assault of ill-health invaders on our systems. When maximum strength Beta Glucan is needed, NSC-100 Immunition is the answer.
The Scientific Truth is conclusive in current U.S. Medical School Research included in the U.S. Patent 6,476,003 evaluating MG Beta Glucan and inferior competitor glucans,
"The data demonstrates a factor of two increase in the production of NO [Nitric Oxide] from comparison of the untreated glucan [competitor glucans] to the treated glucan [MG Beta Glucan]; from 275 .mu.M to 600 .mu.M.
The measurement of NO [Nitric Oxide] production is indicative of an oxidative burst that kills and/or destroys the ingested microbes and/or particles [bacteria, fungi, viruses, parasites, toxins] by the macrophage. ... The greater generation and/or production of NO demonstrates the enhanced activity of the macrophage with a small particle size glucan which is indicative of an activity level of an immune system."
A major determinant of the activity level of the immune system generated by a given beta glucan is production enhancement of nitric oxide - Not weight or volume in a capsule. Based on this peer-reviewed and scientifically accepted standard of measurement of immune potentiation capabilities, NSC IMMUNITION MG Glucan is superior to all competitors - in fact more than twice as potent.

Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule daily. Once opened take as suggested until complete.
NSC continues to provide only the best in ingredients and inulin from chicory as the selected filler in NSC IMMUNITION products fulfills that tradition. Inulin is nutritionally beneficial:
- as a Prebiotic and Bifidus promoter for good intestinal flora,
- as a sugar replacement with a similar sweet taste,
- to enhance calcium and magnesium absorption,
- for fat replacement and metabolism enhancement and
- as a low calorie bulking agent approved by the FDA as a food ingredient - not as an additive.
NSC 24 and NSC 100 capsules contain a total of approximately 200 mg of ingredients, meaning approximately 197 mg of inulin is present in each NSC-24 capsule with 3 mg of MG Beta Glucan and approximately 190 milligrams of inulin are present in each NSC 100 capsule with 10 mg of MG Beta Glucan. Varying amounts of inulin are present in other NSC IMMUNITION products, depending on the total volume of other ingredients in each NSC IMMUNITION product. Contrary to some erroneous competitor claims, Inulin (not Maltodextrin) has been the filler substance since 2003 in NSC IMMUNITION products.
Inulin is a prebiotic classified as an indigestible carbohydrate; unlike probiotics that are living microorganisms. As a prebiotic, Inulin stimulates the growth of friendly and healthy intestinal bacteria which supports good colon health. Inulin is suitable for many people who are on restricted diets, particularly related to prediabetic or diabetic conditions since inulin also has:
- a very low glycemic index,
- a mildly sweet taste;
- is filling for satiety (fullness) similar to starchy foods;
- is not absorbed; and
- does not affect blood sugar levels.
Because inulin's taste is comparable to sugar, it can be used as a sugar replacer. Inulin is considered safe to eat, but must be declared on ingredient labels if used in processed foods. Use of inulin and oligofructose is believed to provide increased calcium and magnesium absorption, and may improve fat metabolism and function of the gastrointestinal tract.
Because of its presumed health benefits, inulin is used as a food ingredient in a variety of processed foods. A fructan and storage carbohydrate, inulin, belongs to a group of naturally-occurring carbohydrates containing the non-digestible fructooligosaccharides. The nutrition industry refers to them as FOS. Inulin is metabolized in a manner similar to soluble, dietary fiber. Inulin resists digestion in the upper gastrointestinal tract and is fermented by microflora in the large intestine. For that reason, inulin provides most of the same positive effects of soluble fiber in the diet.
The Food and Drug Administration classifies inulin and oligofructose as food ingredients, not as additives. Inulin is derived from chicory roots as in NSC IMMUNITION products and other natural sources of inulin such as wheat, barley and artichoke. In fact, Inulin is a natural storage carbohydrate found in more than 36,000 types of plants worldwide, including numerous edible plant species such as chicory, artichoke, leek, onion, asparagus, wheat, barley, rye, garlic, and bananas. Amazingly, estimates are approximately one-third of the earth's vegetation contain inulin.
The inulin from chicory in NSC IMMUNITION products is from the Mediterranean herb (Cichorium intybus) naturalized in North America. Chicory is extensively grown in Europe for its root, which is roasted and powdered and used as a coffee substitute. There have been no known reports of allergic reactions to inulin derived from chicory and used in NSC IMMUNITION products. There have been very rare reports of allergic reactions alleged but not confirmed for inulin sourced from artichokes or wheat/barley sources - the latter gluten related, but we emphasize these sources are not used for the inulin in NSC IMMUNITION products.
