PURACERE is a patent protected and clinically researched dietary supplement that is the purist yeast beta-1,3/1,6-D-glucan available. It is manufactured in the United States by Immudyne via a proprietary process and is sold to some of the world’s largest cosmetic companies. Purcacere is also used in Immudyne’s cosmetic products marketed directly to consumers around the world.
Proven through hundreds of studies and centuries of clinical experience, beta-glucans are powerful in supporting immune health. Clinical research has demonstrated that yeast beta-1/3, 1/6-D-glucan activates neutrophils, B-lymphocytes, T-helper cells, NK1 cells, and macrophages to destroy harmful pathogens such as bacteria, fungi, protozoan, and pre-malignant and malignant cancer cells. These naturally derived compounds also have potent anti-oxidant properties that assist in the body’s natural detoxification process. Other studies have shown that yeast beta-1,3/1,6-D-glucan increases immune system cell count, stimulates new tissue growth, and accelerates wound healing.
Specifically, Immudyne’s beta-1,3/1,6-D-glucan has been extensively researched by many renowned medical laboratories, including; Baylor College of Medicine, US Armed Forces Radiobiology Institute, Stanford University, Southwest Research Institute, Case Western Reserve University, the University of Arkansas, North Caroline State University, The University of Bern in Switzerland, and the China Agricultural University, China.
