M-Gard® is a purified bioactive beta-1,3/1,6-glucan, a naturally occurring complex polysaccharide found in the cell walls of baker’s yeast.

running for life M-Gard® is an immunomodulator that enhances your body’s vital defence mechanisms against pathogens such as bacteria, virus, fungus etc*. Studies have shown that M-Gard® exert immunomodulatory effects in vitro and in vivo in experimental animal and human models. M-Gard® represent an excellent immune enhancing compound for human use.

How M-Gard® enhances your immune system

The physiologic function of the immune system is to protect living organisms against infections. Besides the adaptive immune system, the immune system also offers another mechanism to fight off intruders, the innate immune system. This part of the immune system is the early line of defence against invading pathogens that activate the rest of the immune system. M-Gard® strengthens key function of the innate immune system by modulating immune cells that are part of the innate immune system.

M-Gard: Step 1
Step 1: The unique molecular structure of the bioactive M-Gard® lets it bind to specific receptors on immune cells. This interaction is known to occur through different cell surface receptors — most notably, the Dectin-1 receptor.
M-Gard: Step 2
Step 2: Binding of M-Gard® to a receptor triggers cellular signalling cascades, which modulates the immune cell that are part of the innate immune system.
M-Gard: Step 3
Step 3: The underlying mechanism of M-Gard® is represented by modulation of the innate immune system, leading to enhanced immune responses upon infection (enhanced secretion of cytokines).
