Researchers are looking at how Cordyceps, Reishi, Lion’s Mane and Chaga mushrooms work to support a strong immune system against all diseases.  The hypothesis is that these mushrooms may deliver a bodily response which helps the immune system performance by supporting:

 

  • Strong NK cells and lymphocytes

  • Getting Ergothioneine (Ergo) to the brain

  • Healthy T-helper cells in the body

  • Immune health of the gut

  • Growth of new cytokines (proteins)

  • White blood cells for immune strength

Reishi Mushroom

Reishi mushroom benefits can be seen by it's supporting the defense against viruses by containing beta-D-glucan which is a polysaccharide that stimulates the immune system against viruses.  For instance, studies suggest that Reishi even supports an antiviral response to the herpes virus due to its acidic protein bound polysaccharide (APBP).  In addition to supporting a strong immune system, Reishi mushrooms are being studied for their benefits to supporting healthy lungs, providing natural energy, supporting gut health / healthy cholesterol, maintaining a calm, focused brain, and supporting a healthy heart.
