When the BETA GLUCAN molecule is absorbed into the cell, does the molecular structure remain the same?

A. The Beta glucan molecule is not absorbed into the cells. There are receptors on the surface of neutrohils, macrophages and other phagocytes (immune cells). Once the Beta glucan particle comes in proximity to these receptors, they become more attentive. A cascade of events occur to turn the glucan treated host into “an arsenal of defense”, says Czop from Harvard. The particulate from the Beta glucan do not physically go inside the cell and do anything. Again, we are talking about a non-chemical process. So going back to the question, “How does Beta glucan get through the blood brain barrier?” We do not have to get Beta glucan across a blood brain barrier. What does cross the blood brain barrier is the communication between our white blood cells, through interferon, interleukins, and in the area of cancers, Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF). Also, let’s not forget there is a communication between certain white blood cells and autonomic nerves. Not only do we have communication via chemical
