Strenuous aerobic exercise is known to weaken the immune system, and while many nutritional supplements have been proposed to boost post-exercise immunity, few are known to be effective. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate whether 10 d of supplementation with a defined source of baker's yeast β-glucan (BG, Wellmune WGP®) could minimise post-exercise immunosuppression. Recreationally active men and women (n 60) completed two 10 d trial conditions using a cross-over design with a 7 d… Expand
Yeast Beta-Glucan Supplementation Downregulates Markers of Systemic Inflammation after Heated Treadmill Exercise
TLDR
A 13-day prophylactic period of supplementation with 250 mg of yeast-derived beta-glucans invoked favorable changes in cytokine markers of inflammation after completing a prolonged bout of heated treadmill exercise. Expand
Oral Supplementation with Baker's Yeast Beta Glucan Is Associated with Altered Monocytes, T Cells and Cytokines following a Bout of Strenuous Exercise
TLDR
Data support the hypothesis that oral BYBG supplementation modulates the expected exercise response for individuals of average fitness, which may result in a decrease in susceptibility to opportunistic infections after strenuous exercise. Expand
Baker's Yeast Beta Glucan Supplementation Increases Salivary IgA and Decreases Cold/Flu Symptomatic Days After Intense Exercise
TLDR
It is demonstrated that baker's yeast β-glucan (BG) may reduce URTI symptomatic days and improve mucosal immunity (salivary IgA) postexercise. Expand
Beverage Containing Dispersible Yeast β-Glucan Decreases Cold/Flu Symptomatic Days After Intense Exercise: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Overall, consumption of dairy-based beverages containing dispersible yeast β-glucan decreased URTI symptomatic days, severity of specific U RTI symptoms, and missed postmarathon workout days due to URTi, without affecting duration and number of URTD episodes. Expand
Effect of a Euglena gracilis Fermentate on Immune Function in Healthy, Active Adults: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial
TLDR
Evidence is provided that supplementation with a proprietary Euglena gracilis fermentate containing greater than 50% β-1,3-glucan may reduce and prevent URTI symptoms, providing immune support and protecting overall health. Expand
Oral spore-based probiotic supplementation was associated with reduced incidence of post-prandial dietary endotoxin, triglycerides, and disease risk biomarkers
TLDR
Oral spore-based probiotic supplementation reduced symptoms indicative of “leaky gut syndrome” and was associated with significant post-prandial reductions in IL-12p70 and IL-1β. Expand
Effects of a Novel Dietary Supplement on Indices of Muscle Injury and Articular GAG Release in Horses
&NA; This study determined the ability of an oral nutraceutical supplement to attenuate the oxidative stress and inflammation that occurs in muscles and joints with repeated bouts of high‐intensityExpand
Immune-modulatory effects of dietary Yeast Beta-1,3/1,6-D-glucan
TLDR
Oral intake of insoluble yeast beta-glucans is safe and has an immune strengthening effect, and the results confirm the previous findings of in vivo studies. Expand
Natural cocoa consumption: Potential to reduce atherogenic factors?
TLDR
Findings indicate that acute natural cocoa consumption was associated with decreased obesity-related disease risk and more research is needed to assess the stability of the observed short-term changes. Expand

TLDR
The notion that combined curcumin and pomegranate supplementation may represent a useful addition to a comprehensive exercise training plan is supported. Expand

Beta-glucan, immune function, and upper respiratory tract infections in athletes.
TLDR
An 18-d period of BG versus P ingestion did not alter chronic resting or exercise-induced changes in immune function or URTI incidence in cyclists during the 2-wk period after an intensified exercise. Expand
Benefits of oat beta-glucan and sucrose feedings on infection and macrophage antiviral resistance following exercise stress.
TLDR
Previous work on the benefits of oat beta-glucan is extended to show that sucrose feedings have similar effects on susceptibility to respiratory infection and macrophage antiviral resistance in both resting controls and following exercise stress. Expand
Carbohydrate consumption during cycling increases in vitro NK cell responses to IL-2 and IFN-γ
TLDR
The drink effect for Th1 (but not Th2) cytokines suggests they may play a more significant role in modulating NKCA following a strenuous bout of aerobic exercise when CHO is consumed. Expand

TLDR
Depletion of macrophages negated the beneficial effects of ObetaG on reducing susceptibility to infection following exercise stress, as evidenced by an increase in morbidity and symptom severity. Expand
Effect of BETA 1, 3/1, 6 GLUCAN on Upper Respiratory Tract Infection Symptoms and Mood State in Marathon Athletes.
TLDR
BETA-GLUCAN may prevent URTI symptoms, and improve overall health and mood following a competitive marathon, andBeta-Glucan supplementation reduces post-exercise URTIs in marathon runners. Expand
Carbohydrate intake during endurance exercise increases natural killer cell responsiveness to IL-2.
TLDR
CHO consumption during exercise did not prevent disruptions in unstimulated immune system function, but it did enhance NK responsiveness to IL-2. Expand
TLR4 is lower in resistance-trained older women and related to inflammatory cytokines.
TLDR
Regularly exercising older women expressed less cell-surface TLR4 but did not have lower plasma levels or produce less LPS-stimulated inflammatory cytokines at rest or in response to a single bout of resistance exercise. Expand
Knowledge of carbohydrate consumption does not alter natural killer cell activity following an acute bout of high-intensity aerobic exercise.
TLDR
Knowledge of drink type does not alter innate immunity following exercise as assessed by leukocyte counts and NKCA, and there was a significant effect of exercise on NKCA. Expand
Strenuous exercise decreases the percentage of type 1 T cells in the circulation.
TLDR
The postexercise decrease in T lymphocyte number is accompanied by a more pronounced decrease in type 1 T cells, which may be linked to high plasma epinephrine, and peak plasma IL-6 correlated with plasma cortisol postrunning. Expand
