Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS), is a long-term condition that causes pain all
over the body. FMS symptoms may also include increased sensitivity to pain, extreme
tiredness, muscle stiffness, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and problems with memory
and concentration. Beta 1,3/1,6 glucan in the micro glucan (MG) form is a potent
antioxidant to aid in nutritionally minimizing oxidative (free radical) stress while
nutritionally potentiating and normalizing the immune response and promoting
phagocytosis or removal of toxins and cellular debris from the body. Beta glucan
enhances white cell mobility, white cell production and pathogen destruction. Also, it
enables immune system modulation by balancing on an underactive or overactive
immune response.

Keywords: β-glucan, Beta Glucan, Chronic Fatigue Disease, Fibromyalgia.
