Hi Dr. Todorov and everyone else,

I'm trying to purchase a non-oral supply of glucan (oat or B. yeast) for stronger immunity since I figured it's 5 times cheaper and I am really short of money.

I was thinking of using a base cream like NOW Foods MSM Liposome Lotion and then heat it afterwards. Apparently heating would help? I just read it somewhere about a case of Leukemia where the person was held as guinea pig and applied EGCG plus a hot cream into his lymph areas (armpits, neck, groin). Will it work the same? How can I determine if it's possible to go through the bloodstream and in what percentage? THANKS! :oops: :oops: :oops:

What are you trying to achieve? Getting beta-glucan into systemic circulation via topical applicaiton?

It is hard to say w/o measurements, but even when BG gets into the dermis it may not find its way into systemic circulation in any significant amount. It is likely that you'd get a better absorption via oral route.
