Support your Immunity with Mushroom Extracts

Support your Immunity with Mushroom Extracts

With winter here, we wanted to talk about the different ways mushroom extracts can support your immune system to stay healthy and vibrant. There is some debate about whether mushroom extracts from the fruiting body or mycelium are better, our take is that both offer unique benefits.


Understanding Mushroom Extracts: Fruiting Body vs. Mycelium

Mushrooms are rich in beta-glucans, natural compounds found in the cell walls of the fruiting body. These beta-glucans have been shown to enhance the body's immune response by:

The Fruiting Body: Rich in Beta-Glucans

  • Enhancing Immune Response: How Beta-Glucans Activate Immune Cells
    • Activating Immune Cells: Beta-glucans stimulate macrophages, dendritic cells, and natural killer cells, which play a crucial role in identifying and eliminating pathogens.
  • Regulating Immune System: Modulating the Immune Response for Better Health
    • Modulating Immune Response: By helping to regulate the immune system, beta-glucans ensure it responds appropriately to threats, reducing the risk of overreaction and inflammation.

The mycelium, the root-like structure of mushrooms, contains a unique array of compounds that can also support immune health:

The Mycelium

  • Antioxidant Protection: Shielding Cells from Damage
    • Antioxidants: Mycelium is packed with antioxidants that protect cells from damage and support overall immune function.
  • Polysaccharides for Immune Support: Enhancing White Blood Cell Activity
    • Polysaccharides: These complex carbohydrates found in mycelium enhance the activity of white blood cells, helping your body to fight off infections more effectively.
  • Prebiotic Benefits: Promoting a Healthy Gut Microbiome
    • Prebiotics: Compounds in mycelium also act as prebiotics, promoting a healthy gut microbiome, which is essential for a strong immune system.

Introducing the Immunity Bundle: Comprehensive Immune Support

To help you harness the full potential of these incredible benefits, we are excited to introduce our new Immunity Bundle. This bundle features:

Turkey Tail Capsules

  • High Concentration of Beta-Glucans: Boosting Natural Defenses
    • With the highest tested concentration of immune-activating beta-glucans of all the mushroom extracts we offer (>55%), our Turkey Tail capsules are designed to boost your body's natural defenses, helping you stay healthy throughout the winter.

Alchemy Capsules: A Synergistic Blend

  • Fermented Mushroom Extract: Combining Lion’s Mane, Shiitake, Maitake, and Agaricus Blazei
    • Alchemy is a fermented, cultured mushroom extract formulated from the mycelia of Lion’s Mane, Shiitake, Maitake, and Agaricus Blazei. This extract contains a unique mixture of compounds, including alpha-amylase, a complex polysaccharide that has been studied for its immune-boosting and anti-viral properties.

By incorporating both the fruiting body and mycelium, our Immunity Bundle offers a holistic approach to supporting your immune health. Stay ahead of the winter season and give your immune system the boost it needs.
