Let's Talk About...   

   

Immune Fighting Mushrooms

 

 

When it comes to boosting the immune system to fight off illness, mushrooms of various kids, have long been a go-to "herb." From Chinese yak herders who noticed their charges' vitality after grazing on mushrooms to Russian peasants who drank mushroom teas, and never got cancer, mushrooms are among of best healers in the world.

 

Reishi mushrooms can increase the production of interleukin, the naturally occurring proteins that regulate cell growth, differentiation, and motility. They are particularly important in stimulating immune responses.

 

Studies show that Reishi can have a number of other positive effects on the body including:

  • pain reduction
  • anti-inflammatory
  • antioxidant
  • anti-viral
  • antibacterial
  • lower blood pressure
  • inhibit tumor cholesterol
  • Expectorant
  • liver protecting and detoxifying,
  • protection against ionizing radiation
  • anti-HIV activity.    
Cordyceps, general term for about 400 species of medicinal fungi, are great energy boosters, and have a highly beneficial effect on the immune system. Coming from the Himalaya region, they were used by Chinese emperors to attain longevity and heal from diseases. Its components are:   
  • Essential amino and fatty acids.
  • Vitamins such as vitamin B1, B2, B12, E and K.
  • Minerals including Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Iron, Potassium and many others.
  • Enzymes
  • Sterols and Proteins

Cordyceps can:

  • combat high cholesterol
  • boost the immune system
  • combat respiratory diseases
  • lower blood pressure
  • tonify kidney and liver
  • promote anti-aging
