Safety & Purity
Life Source Basics products are safe and well-tolerated. Numerous human and animal studies have been completed with no adverse effects. The natural ingredient in Life Source Basics is BetaRight WGP, which is Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) under U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations (21CFR170.30).
Life Source Basics contains the purest food-grade gluco polysaccarride available, which is produced using a proprietary process that separates the lipids, proteins and cell membrane from the yeast cell wall. Exposing the beta 1,3/1,6 glucan fibrils that provide strength and structure to the yeast cell is necessary to achieve biological activity.
An independent university study recently demonstrated that BetaRight WGP, the active ingredient in Life Source Basics, is significantly more effective than any other leading nutritional supplement in activating the immune system to maintain health and wellness.
Researchers at the University of Louisville measured the ability of leading immune supplements to mobilize key immune responses in a preclinical model. The study found that BetaRight WGP was more than twice as effective as MCG-3, AHCC, mushroom beta glucans or Echinacea. Supplement doses were based on information provided by the manufacturer of each product.
BetaRight WGP is not intended to prevent, diagnose, treat or cure any disease. These statements have not been reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

- Improves vigor and mental clarity while reducing fatigue and tension.
- Supports general health and well-being.
The Human Immune System
The immune system is a complex network of cells, tissues and organs that has evolved to protect us against infection and disease. The body's natural defenses include immune cells (macrophages, neutrophils and natural killer cells) that keep you healthy.
Researchers have discovered a natural compound that activates key immune cells to help keep your immune system at peak performance. That compound is BetaRight WGP™, the active ingredient in Immune Health Basics.
BetaRight WGP is a natural gluco polysaccharide derived from the cell walls of a highly purified, proprietary yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). This unique ingredient mobilizes human immune responses that have evolved over thousands of years. Now let's look at how Life Source Basics can safely support your immune system.
What is BetaRight WGP?
BetaRight WGP is a patented ingredient that contains beta 1,3/1,6 gluco polysaccharide purified from a proprietary strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Baker's yeast) that is widely recognized as an immune system enhancer. BetaRight WGP engages human immune defenses that have evolved over thousands of years. It works with the body's first line of defense that consists primarily of key immune cells (monocytes, macrophages, neutrophils and natural killer cells) that circulate throughout the body.
Clinical studies demonstrate that BetaRight WGP:
- Strengthens the function of key immune cells.
- Maintains energy, vitality and mental clarity.
- Activates key immune cells to protect against the harmful effects of stress.
There are several sources of gluco polysaccharide, including yeast, mushrooms, oats and barley, but not all are created equal. Each type of carbohydrate has a unique structure that affects its biological activities. Research shows that yeast beta glucans possess the most beneficial immune health properties. However, there are slight molecular differences between yeast glucans that impact effectiveness. Look for products supported by peer-reviewed clinical research that was conducted with their own active ingredient -- not borrowed research from another glucan of the same source.
How it Works
BetaRight WGP is the only nutritional supplement that is scientifically proven to enhance the immune system, as evidence by research both demonstrating its mechanism of action in the body and measuring significant changes in immune response. In fact, the science supporting the efficacy of BetaRight WGP is overwhelming.
Once swallowed, immune cells in the gastrointestinal tract take up BetaRight WGP and transport it to immune organs throughout the body. While in the immune organs, immune cells called macrophages digest the BetaRight WGP into smaller fragments and slowly release them over a number of days. The fragments bind to neutrophils, which are the most abundant immune cell in the body. Activated by beta glucan, the neutrophils now more quickly navigate to the site of a foreign challenge and kill it.
This mechanism of action has been proven through published research. Researchers discovered the mechanism by tracking fluorescently dyed beta glucan as it traveled through the body. Within days the beta glucan is carried to the spleen, bone marrow and other immune organs throughout the body. It's unknown whether other beta glucans actually work since none have done similar testing.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. How does Life Source Basics work?
Life Source Basics enhances the immune system by activating macrophages and neutrophils, two of the most abundant immune cells in the body.
2. Is Life Source Basics safe?
Life Source Basics contains BetaRight WGP, which derived from Baker's yeast and has been part of the human diet for thousands of years in the form of bread. Life Source Basics is Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) under regulations of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (21CFR170.30).
3. What research supports the effectiveness of Life Source Basics?
There are numerous clinical and preclinical studies demonstrating the ability of Life Source Basics to enhance the responsiveness of the immune system. See our Learning Center for the citations and abstracts of studies published in peer-reviewed science and medical journals.
4. How often do I need to take Life Source Basics?
The body has millions of immune cells, also known as white blood cells, which are constantly being renewed so take Life Source Basics daily for maximum benefit.
5. How does Life Source Basics compare with other immune supplements?
Some supplements, such as Echinacea and zinc, are recommended for only short periods because of the danger of over-stimulating the immune system. But Life Source Basics is safe for daily use so you can ensure that your immune system is always at peak performance. Most other beta glucan products do not contain enough active ingredient to be beneficial or use a less effective source of beta glucan, such as mushrooms or cereal grains.
6. Is 'Micronized' beta glucan better?
There is a large body of research demonstrating the effectiveness of Life Source Basics in humans and animals. Research claiming the efficacy of submicron particles are based on test tube (in vitro) studies. Don't be fooled by marketing gimmicks about "micronized" beta glucan.
7. What is the optimal dosage?
Based on extensive research, Life Source Basics has established a recommended human dosage of approximately 2 milligrams of beta glucan daily per kilogram of body weight.
8. Is it safe for children?
Yes. Life Source Basics has a Children's Chewable product designed specifically for children ages 2 and older. The product is available in both orange and berry flavors.
9. Is yeast superior to other beta glucan sources?
Not all beta glucans are equal. Substantial research demonstrates that yeast beta glucan has far superior immune-enhancing benefits when compared with oat and barley beta glucans. The disparity is attributed to differences in the molecular structure of the glucans, which affects biological activity. Mushroom-based glucans have demonstrated immune-enhancing benefits similar to yeast beta glucan, however, they are more difficult to process and purify.
10. How important is beta glucan purity?
Poorly purified beta glucans may contain fats and proteins that are potential harmful. That is why it is important to purchase beta glucan products only from companies with high quality and manufacturing standards. Biothera, the manufacture of Life Source Basdics, has multiple co-manufacturers that are cGMP compliant with FDA regulations. In addition, our facilities are certified Kosher and ISO 9001 or equivalent. All of our facilities are required to have an independent, third-party audit.
