Pleuran s.r.o (daughter company Imunoglukan Ltd.) world leader in β-glucan research for more than 25 years, has been the first to isolate from the well-known edible mushroom Pleurotus ostreatus β-glucan, a polysaccharide – glucose polymer with a structure that differentiates it from β-glucans of bacteria, cereals and mold. Pleuran’s extensive knowhow has resulted the patented technology of extracting the natural functional ingredient Pleuran (IMG®) from the well known and edible Pleurotus Ostreatus. Imunoglukan P4H® has been studied in 65 clinical trials in more than 10 countries to date and its properties bring it on top of the list by being the most studied natural imunomodulator in children with unique, safe, proven properties and profile of action.
In recent years many substances found in nature or in the human body have been studied as potentially natural immunomodulators, such as hebs (phytotherapy), peptides and proteins
(immunoglobulins, thymus gland extracts etc.), Biologically-Active-Polysaccharides (BAPs) – glucans, chitin, manonose polymers etc. A special place in natural immunomodulators, do have β-glucans contained in plants or composed of fungi and yeasts. β-glucan, a polysaccharide – a polymer of glucose with a structure that differentiates it from the β-glucans of bacteria, cereals and mold. The patented finished product Imunoglukan P4H® (that uses the patented natural ingredient IMG®) has been extensively studied and has been proved to be a β-glucan+vitamin C product with unique imunomodulatory characteristics.
Every day our body’s
is challenged from
external as well as
internal factors .
…keeping our immunity
well regulated is the key factor for maintaining its function in optimum levels…
Natural β-glucans are contained
in plants (cereals) or composed
of, bacteria, fungi and mold.
Every origin offers a β-glucan
with different structure.
The origin is the key factor for
determining the structure and the
Imunoglukan P4H® range of products includes a sirop for children 3+ years and adults that prefer liquid forms and capsules for children 7+ years and adults. Both contain the patented functional natural ingredient IMG® and vitamin C providing a unique synergistic action..
Imunoglukan P4H® has been extensively studied and proven to be safe and effective in children from the 3rd year of life and adults for the following indications:
Expertise and focus in immunology have resulted to the 1st and most studied β-glukan in children
We have discovered and isolated the natural β-glukan from the edible Peurotus Ostreatus, a natural functional ingredient with unique properties for our immune system
A weak immune system is vulnerable to threats , while the opposite is related to chronic inflammations, allergies etc.
Imunoglukan P4H® regulates and brings in balance the activity of the immune system
Ιt develops the memory of both the adaptive and the innate immune response
Imunoglukan P4H® is not absorbed by the body, making its use even more safe for children, as well as for adults
Imunoglukan P4H® is binding to specific receptors in the gut that are responsible for immune function. This behavior is causing a mechanic reaction that is not related at all to systemic action
Intake of vitamin C is necessary to improve phagocytosis, however vitamin C alone can not start the process. This is achieved through IMG® ‘s activity
Imunoglukan P4H®has been extensively studied in cases where immune system is weak or overstimulated. It has been studied in RIs, RRIs, Upper & Lower RIs, Allergic rhinitis, Crohn’s disease, COPD etc.
