Dr Takeo Hasegawa

Dr. Takeo Hasegawa, a radiation specialist from the Faculty of Radiological Technology in the Department of Health Science at the Suzuka University of Medical Science in Japan, has been studying and investigating beta glucans derived from black yeast.

The Immune System Benefits

This beta glucan product has been shown to be beneficial to the body’s immune functions. Dr Hasegawa explains the large molecule of beta glucans in this product, known as polysaccharides, work to stimulate the intestine when ingested.

The stimulation of the yeast beta glucan polysaccharides in the intestine has the effect of calling the immune cells macrophages to gather together. This gathering of the macrophages enables them to release the hormones cytokines. The cytokines work at the systemic level by going around the body and waking up the entire immune system of the body. This results in the body’s immune functions being stronger and ready to take on any foreign harmful substances that enter the body.

Cellular Repair

It is now known that the cells of our body consist of hairlike whiskers protruding from the surface of each cell. These whiskers are sugar chains playing the role of transmitting information between cells and from cell to cell. This information relay mechanism allows the cells to understand each other’s role and functions, thereby vital in making the body, cells and tissues function harmoniously and in collaboration as one entity. Unfortunately, the sugar chains can be damaged by various factors, including aging, free radicals, oxidation and a host of other factors.

The polysaccharides of black yeast beta glucan that enter the intestine can be fragmented. The fragments of the polysaccharides are absorbed through the intestine and attach themselves to the damaged sugar chains whiskers. The attached fragmented polysaccharides will repair and restore the damaged whisker like sugar chains. This action of cellular repair results in rejuvenation of the body cells, thereby enabling the body to self-heal.

As Soluble Dietary Fiber

The gel of this product is water soluble and also plays the role of dietary fiber. Dr Hasegawa also shows that this gel is very effective in forming fibrous colloids in the presence of waste environment. This indicates that the beta glucans produced by the black yeast is powerful in cleaning up the colon and detoxification.


Radiation and a host of other causes can generate free radicals in the body. Radiation produces active oxygen which is a free radical that goes round the body robbing away electrons and causing severe damages to the cells and tissues. Beta glucans from black yeast, according to Dr Hasegawa, is effective in neutralizing the damaging effect of free radicals, such as active oxygen.

Clinical Treatment : Beta Glucan And Cancer

The impact and effects of this product on the immune functions of the body provide far reaching implications in clinical applications. The immune system encompasses and influences many aspects of the body and health. A defected or partially functional immune system can result in many deleterious consequences on the body and our health. Some examples of immune system disorders are autoimmune diseases, cancer and inflammatory diseases. As you can see, the problems can be mild or severe depending on the type of diseases but the impact is definitely wide and deep.

Dr Mutsutaka Hosoi, Director at the Hosoi Dermatology Clinic in Fukuoka city, Kyushu, Japan, is one of the doctors who uses food therapy on his patients. He has been using Black Yeast Beta Glucan, the exact same product presented in this review, to treat his cancer patients. Dr Hosoi’s cancer therapy is effective because research has demonstrated that beta glucan was able to double the power of NK cells in fighting cancer cells and virus-infected cells.

Black Yeast Beta Glucan – What Is It?

Black Yeast Beta Glucan is essentially as the name implies, beta glucan produced from black yeast. The black yeast in the black yeast beta glucan refers to Aureobasidium pullutans. Using this strains of yeast, black yeast beta glucan can be obtained through fermentation. Though many people are aware of beta glucans, very few are familiar with black yeast beta glucan.

What Really Is Black Yeast Beta Glucan?

Black Yeast Beta Glucan is actually a string of sugar molecules forming what is known as polysaccharide. Polysaccharide is basically a macromolecules, composed of long carbohydrate molecule with many units of sugar connected together through special bonds. The molecule string can be linear or branched depending on the types of polysaccharide.

The Structure of Black Yeast Beta Glucan

Black Yeast Beta Glucan Structure

Black Yeast Beta Glucan Structure

Beta Glucans produced from Black Yeast are represented by the formula beta-1,3/1,6-glucan or beta 1,3/1,6 glucan. The 1,3 nomenclature refers to the main string or trunk of the black yeast beta glucan, while the 1,6 refers to the side chain or the branches.

Structurally, the beta glucans from black yeast consist of a main string or main trunk, represented by beta-1,3-glucan. It also has many side strings or branches represented by beta-1,6-glucan.

The beta in the name or in any beta glucans stands for the bond or linkage joining the sugar molecules together. Technically, it is known as beta glycosidic bond.

What So Special About Black Yeast Beta Glucan?

Yeast beta glucan or beta glucan from yeast is considered to be the ‘mother’ of all beta glucans. This is easily understood once you realize that yeast beta glucan renders the widest spectrum of effects and benefits to the body compared to other beta glucans.

The table below compares the benefits of beta glucan obtained from different sources.

Benefits of Black Yeast Beta Glucan

The potency and power of black yeast beta glucan and yeast beta glucan lie in its broad spectrum of functions, effects and benefits.

1. Stimulates the Immune Cells. This effect of stimulation on the immune cells such as macrophages, natural killer (NK) cells and other white blood cells can enhance the immune system functions.

2. As soluble fibers. This has the effects of lowering the LDL cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood, thereby reducing the risks of cardiovascular diseases and strokes.The dietary fiber characteristic can help relieve constipation as well as promoting detoxification.

3. Moderates the excessive response of the Immune system. This can help reduce allergies and auto-immune diseases.
