Plant bioactive polysaccharides and the products of organisms are the hot focus of present research. They play various biological roles, one of the most vital of which is enhancing the immunity. Relationship between immune substances and disease has been confirmed through lots of studies. The immune ability of polysaccharides attributes to their stimulation of macrophage phagocytosis, activation of T-cells and B-cells. This paper reviews bioactive polysaccharides from plant sources focusing on their immune ability. In addition, extraction methods, structure characterization and activity evaluation are reviewed.
