Could yeast be the cure for colds and flu?

A new study from Southampton University Medical School shows that a purified component extracted from baker's yeast can help reduce the severity and duration of cold and flu symptoms.

 
PRLog - Dec. 16, 2010 - Research presented at this years meeting of the British Society for Immunology provided further evidence that Wellmune WGP, a purified component from bakers yeast can help reduce the severity and duration of cold and flu symptoms.

During the 90 day double blind placebo controlled trial involving 100 medical students from Southampton University Medical School there were 24 medically confirmed cases of upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) divided equally between placebo and WGP groups. Participants taking the WGP ingredient reported 43 fewer days of symptoms than their classmates who received a placebo. There was also a statistically significant trend towards reduced symptom severity in the active group compared with the placebo.

Wellmune WGP is the active ingredient of Finvita Beta Glucan and is available from Boots the Chemist (RRP £19.99) and online from www.HealthCheckShop.co.uk
