Beta Glucan is a natural, branched polysaccharide (string of sugar molecules) found in cell walls of food such as mushrooms, algae, lichens, yeast, oats and barley. Research has shown that this compound effectively enhances the immune system by activating the white blood cells including macrophages, B cells, and the natural killer cells. (londequist et. AL, The Pharmacological Potential of Mushrooms, 2005). While there are various sources of beta glucan, mushrooms are regarded by far, the most superior.
This nutrient benefits anyone who wants to be healthier, live longer, deal with the stress of modern society, be less allergenic, speed up healing and resist the dangerous microbes, bacteria and viruses that seems to be everywhere.
With Bioresis’ cutting-edge M-SAFE™ technology, Bioresis has successfully produced a proprietary Halal aqueous extract which is high in beta glucans without the toxic heavy metals and microorganisms commonly present in mushrooms. This proprietary Halal aqueous extract of medical mushroom is called the Organic Beta-Matrix Complex™.
Bioresis is a pioneering manufacturer of organic medicinal fungi since year 1973, with many years of experience in organic farming, processing, and developing best extraction technique practices and solutions for medicinal fungus on our pure, natural and pollution free highlands farms. Our Halal Bioresis Organic Medicinal Mushroom Beta Glucan 1-3,1-6 are within the minimal approved level of heavy metals as according to International Standard.
The efficacy of Grifolan extracted from Maitake (Grifola Frondasa) and Maitake powder was tested on several cancer patients (stage 2-4) aged 22-57 years old. Tumoural regression and improvement of symptoms were observed in 58.3% of hepatic cancer patients, 68.8% of primary breast cancer patients, and 62.5% of lung cancer patients. When Maitake was administered alongside chemotherapy, there was a significant increase (1.2-1.4 times) in immunocompetent cell activity as compared to isolated chemotherapy.
The renowned Dr. Lam discussed mushrooms as a natural medicine that possesses anti-cancerous effects because it contains beta-glucan; which was proven to exhibit potent anti-tumour activity. For example, Maitake mushroom reigns over the rest when it comes to inhibiting cancer cells. It appeared to stop cancer growth when taken alongside chemotherapy. In another study, Maitake reduced the risk of breast cancer by 80% when taken orally. Early stage breast cancer patients who were given Maitake experienced a 70% growth reduction in cancer cells…

Healing Crisis refers to the outcome of a variety of adjustment responses of the body after taking certain nutritional supplements, functional foods and other similar health-enhancing products. One of the common reaction is mild diarrhea or constipation.
While not everybody will experience a healing crisis, however, having such experience is normal and not detrimental to health. It is merely a holistic response whereby the body is adapting to the intake of the nutritional supplements and adjusting the body’s functions to initiate the required healing process.
