More and more people are turning to alternative medicine and herbal solutions to stay healthy.
Along with all the clean eating programs, there’s been a real surge in the population of people who would rather support their bodies in staying health than treat diseases after they show up.
Immutol may be one product that fits well within that lifestyle.
Immutol is an immune boosting daily supplement.
It’s been generating quite a bit of buzz, and recently I had a couple readers as me to look into it.
I did, and here’s what we came up with.
Immutol makes a very simple promise to boost your immune system.
By taking Immutol daily, according to their marketing materials, you’ll see fewer colds this winter, you’ll avoid the flu (even without getting a flu shot) and you’ll feel better and more energetic all year long.
There’s only one ingredient in Immutol.
That’s Norwegian Beta-1,3/1,6-Glucan (or NBG).
You may be familiar with the idea that Beta-1,3/1,6-Glucan can support your immune system.
You may also know that it can help fight against cancer and lower bad cholesterol.
We’ll get into all of that a little later, but it’s important to know that according to Immutol, their Norwegian Beta-1,3/1,6-Glucan is the only truly effective kind of Beta-Glucan when it comes to supporting immune function.
What Are Beta Glucans?
Beta Glucans are sugars that are taken from the cell walls of bacteria, fungi, yeasts, and plants like oats an barley.
They are present in foods such as oats, barley, an mushrooms.
They can be used as medicine/nutrients in several ways:
- There is some evidence to support the protocol of injecting certain types of beta glucans to prolong the lies of late stage cancer patients.
- Taking certain beta glucans orally can reduce bad and total cholesterol.
- Oral ingestion of specific beta glucans over 4 weeks may reduce the symptoms of an allergy to ragweed.
- Certain blends of beta glucans injected intravenously may decrease the risk of post-surgery infections.
- They may reduce canker sores.
- Taking beta glucans from oats may improve diabetics’ insulin and cholesterol levels.
- Intravenous use my boost the immune systems of patients with HIV.
Most research is at this point early and inconclusive, but it is promising.
And how effective they are depends in large part on what kinds of Beta Glucans are used, how they are extracted, and how they are administered.
The makers of Immutol insist that they use precisely the right kind of beta glucan, processed in exactly the right way, and dosed at the perfect amount to get the best results for boosting the immune system.
First off, that means Norwegian Beta-1,3/1,6-Glucan taking from the cell walls of baker’s yeast.
But the most important part to note is that the substance is extracted fully intact.
If this is not the case, you simply won’t get the benefits.
Immutol manufacturers have the patent on their extraction method, so you know you’re getting only the purest, most effective immune supporting beta glucan.
How Immutol Works
The Beta-1,3/1,6-Glucan in Immutol stimulates the activity of the macrophage, which is a white blood cell, one of the building blocks of the immune system.
The macrophage provide resistance to disease and signal to other cells to go and attack whatever intruders it sees.
Because Beta-1,3/1,6-Glucan is acid resistant, it remains unchanged as it travels through the digestive system.
It’s picked up by the macrophages with beta glucan receptors, where it gets to work bolstering your immune system.
How To Use Immutol
The recommended dose is 2 capsules taken up to 3 times a day with meals.
Since there are only 60 capsules in a bottle, that bottle could last you as little as 10 days.
Who Makes Immutal?
The company that makes Immutol is called Immunocorp, based in California.
, who’s goal is to provide products that support healthy immune systems.
Their parent company, SanaPharma, is based in Norway.
They’re the ones that have patents on the extraction process, so you know you’re getting the best beta glucan you can for your immune system.
Immutol Side Effects
While no supplement can claim to be completely side effect-free, here are no known side effects when taking Immutol according to the dosing instructions.

One good thing about Immutol being available through Amazon.com is that we get to see some customer feedback.
In this case, the positive outweighs the negative by quite a bit.

“This is my third purchase of Immutol capsules and I feel great.

isn't yeast a highly allergenic food? Can't it increase candita albicans thus undermining the immune system? -william
Not necessarily. Just like bacteria in the body, there is good yeast and bad yeast, and actually eating too much sugar is more likely to increase candida albicans in your system.- Rob
