Allergic reactions are on the rise in the developed, clean world. The reason is an unbalanced immune system with a prevalence for the IgE-mediated reaction, also called the Th2 arm. Typical signs on the skin are eczema which is very dry, irritated and inflamed skin. Magnesium Carboxymethyl Beta-Glucan, a derivative of a baker’s yeast polysaccharide, was found to correct the inbalanced immune reaction. This kind of archaic molecule helps us to react to allergens with an adequate, harmless Th1 response. Different reconstructed skin models were used to demonstrate the mechanism of action of the Magnesium Carboxymethyl Beta-Glucan.
