Pharma Nord have developed a unique scientifically supported immune-boosting beta glucan formulation. Firstly, in addition to beta 1,3/1,6 glucans, Bio-Glucan Plus also includes selenium (SelenoPrecise) and vitamin D3, two nutrients that play an important role in supporting immune function. Secondly, a superior source of beta 1,3/1,6 glucans with a dry content matter of 85% has been chosen to enhance bio-availability.
With increasing resistance to antibiotics and the emergence of vaccine-resistant organisms the need to activate and support the innate immune system has become increasingly recognised. The new formulation Bio-Glucan Plus contains Yestimun, in our opinion the superior source of beta 1,3/1,6 glucans, with a dry matter content >85% and alpha-D-mannan content of<2%. Like all Pharma Nord products, Bio-Glucan Plus is manufactured to pharmaceutical standards.
What is Bio-Glucan Plus?
Bio-Glucan Plus contains beta 1,3/1,6 glucans, naturally occurring complex sugars obtained from yeasts and fungi. Supplementation with Bio-Glucan Plus? helps to maintain a healthy immune system.
The type of glucan used in Bio-Glucan Plus should not be confused with the type of glucans obtained from cereals such as oats and wheat. They are beta 1,3/1,4 glucans, which have a different molecular structure and different actions within the body.
What does Bio-Glucan Plus do
The beta 1,3/1,6 glucans contained in Bio-Glucan Plus act as a primer of the innate immune system. As the name indicates, the innate immune system is inborn and serves as the body's first line of defence against infectious organisms. This is in contrast to acquired immunity, which involves the development of antibodies against foreign organisms, as the second line of defence. Beta 1,3/1,6 glucans provide a stimulus to active neutrophils, macrophages and natural killer (NK) cells of the innate immune system against infectious organisms.In addition, Vitamin D and Selenium are two nutrients that are known to play an important role in supporting immune function.
Bio-Glucan Plus may particularly benefit individuals whose immune system has been weakened through lifestyle, stress or ageing. Beta 1,3/1,6 glucans help maintain the body's immune defence against infection by Candida species.
Ingredients for Pharma Nord Bio-Glucan Plus 150 capsules
Declared contents per 2 tablets:
Beta Glucan extract, 250mg
Vitamin D3, 10?g
*85% beta 1,3/1,6 glucan from yeast
Hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose
Each Bio-Glucan Plus tablet contains 125mg of Yestimun from brewer's yeast. Yestimun is beta glucan in its pure form, which they extract from raw materials in accordance with the German purity law. Through a gentle process, brewers' yeast is purified to produce Yestimun in such a way that the beta glucans natural structure is maintained. This is how they enable the intestinal receptors to recognise this structure and trigger the immune defence system.
How much Bio-Glucan Plus should you take?
The recommended dose is 2-4 tablets of Bio-Glucan Plus per day.
Are there adverse effects from taking Bio-Glucan Plus?
No significant adverse effects have been reported from clinical trial studies using beta 1,3/1,6 glucans.

Pharma Nord BioActive Q10 Ubiquinol 100mg Uniquinol
BioActive Q10 is a new product containing coenzyme Q10 in the reduced form, ubiquinol. Coenzyme Q10 occurs within the body in two closely related chemical forms, oxidised (ubiquinone) and reduced (ubiquinol). Until recently, coenzyme Q10 supplements were only available in the oxidised form as ubiquinone. In 1990, Pharma Nord was the first company to introduce coenzyme Q10 in ubiquinone form into the European market. Now Pharma Nord have introduced Pharma Nord BioActive Q10, containing ubiquinol manufactured by the Kaneka Corporation of Japan, the world's leading supplier.
Why two forms of Coenzyme Q10?
Most people are able to absorb supplemental coenzyme Q10 in the oxidised ubiquinone form. However, certain categories of people may be less able to absorb this form of coenzyme Q10. These include the elderly, as well as people with liver disease, pancreatic disease, digestive disorders such as IBS, and following digestive tract surgery. For such categories of people, coenzyme Q10 is more easily absorbed in the reduced ubiquinol form, Pharma Nord BioActive Q10
There is evidence that dietary coenzyme Q10 must be reduced to ubiquinol within intestinal enterocytes prior to release into the lymphatic system, and that this may represent a rate-limiting step for coenzyme Q10 assimilation. Dietary coenzyme Q10 supplements containing ubiquinol avoid the necessity for this coupled absorption/reduction step, which may explain their increased bioavailability. Comparison of corresponding dose/plasma levels from several studies indicates the bioavailability of ubiquinol to be several-fold greater than that for ubiquinone.
What is special about Pharma Nord BioActive Q10?
Ubiquinol is extremely sensitive to the effects of air and light. Pharma Nord BioActive Q10 contains ubiquinol in a stabilised form, using specially developed lightproof and air-proof packaging to prevent oxidation via a unique patented process. Pharma Nord is therefore able to guarantee the stability of this product during the whole of the product shelf life.
Like all Pharma Nord products, Pharma Nord BioActive Q10 is manufactured to pharmaceutical standards, a guarantee of product quality, safety and efficacy. The production of Pharma Nord BioActive Q10 products is guaranteed to be nanotechnology-free. The World Health Organisation, The European Commission and the Soil Association have all expressed caution about the application of nanotechnology to foods. Pharma Nord BioActive Q10 products are the best documented in terms of bioavailability in human subjects.
One capsule contains ubiquinol (CoQ10) 100mg dissolved in coconut oil. Other Ingredients: coconut oil, capsule(gelatin), CoQ10, Humectant: Glycerol. Colour: Ammonia Caramel. Humectant: Purified water, Antioxidant: Ascorbic acid and mixed tocopherols.
The recommended dosage for BioActive Q10 is 30 to 100mg daily, to be taken in split doses with meals. Dietary supplementation can help to maintain optimum levels of coenzyme Q10 within the body. As individuals age, the body is less able to maintain optimal coenzyme Q10 levels. This becomes increasingly significant from the age of 35 onwards. In addition, coenzyme Q10 levels are depleted by lifestyle factors such as alcohol consumption and smoking, as well as by physical exertion, illness, or taking statin-type drugs.

Pharma Nord Bio-Quinone Q10 GOLD 100mg
Coenzyme Q10 is a necessary substance for normal heart function. CoQ10 is vital for cellular energy production and is a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger. Coenzyme Q10 appears throughout the human body. It aids metabolic reactions such as the transformation of food into ATP, the energy used by the body. Coenzyme Q10 deficiency appears to be caused more by the body's inability to synthesize the nutrient than by a lack of the enzyme in the diet. Low blood levels are often associated with poor heart function and may be associated with other adverse affects in the body.
One capsule contains:
Ubiquinone (coenzyme Q10) dissolved in vegetable oil 100mg.
Bulking agent: vegetable oil, capsule shell: Fish Gelatine, Co-enzyme Q10, Humectant: Glycerol, Colour: Ammonia caramel, Humectant: Purified Water.
1 capsule per day.
