Beta Glucans, a soluble fiber, support immune system function and may help reduce the incidence of upper respiratory tract infections. These soluble fibers may lower the risk of heart disease, limit the body from absorbing cholesterol from food, and stimulate the immune system by increasing chemicals that prevent infections. This nutrient can easily be found in mushrooms, brewers yeast, barley fiber, oats and whole grains, seaweed, and algae. Some of these are not easily found in a grocery store. You can find mushrooms in the fresh, frozen, canned, and living well section of our stores easily. Beta-glucan supplements may enhance heart health, as they can reduce levels of total and LDL (bad) cholesterol, they can also boost your fiber intake, improve blood sugar regulation, promote digestive health and regularity, and support weight management.
