The name indicates, the innate immune system is inborn, and serves as the body’s first line of defence against infectious organisms.

Beta 1,3/1,6 glucans provide a stimulus to activate neutrophils, macrophages, and natural killer (NK) cells of the innate immune system against infectious organisms.
