• Supports upper respiratory tract health
    • Supports general immune health

    • Supports healthy immune function after intense exercise
    • Supports overall physical health


Wellmune® is a proprietary beta-glucan obtained from baker's yeast with a unique ability to support immune health in many age and lifestyle groups.


Over a dozen human clinical studies have been conducted with it. According to these studies, Wellmune has been shown to be effective under a variety of conditions, including after intense exercise and during stressful periods.


In Wellmune, beta 1,3/1,6 glucan acts as the active ingredient. There are various types of dietary fiber, including beta-glucan, which can be found in yeast, some mushrooms, algae, and grains like barley, oats, and rice.


Nevertheless, beta-glucan is a broad category comprised of a number of structurally similar yet distinct compounds.


The brand's Wellmune is unique because it is made from a proprietary strain of baker's yeast.

Its main component is beta 1,3/1,6 glucan.


In terms of clinical studies, it has the most support for its use in immune health.

Moreover, Wellmune is considered to be an immunomodulator that supports trained immunity, meaning it provides challenges to the immune system so that it can be more fit and efficient[1].
