This product is rich in mushrooms which have a diversity of actions, here are just some of the key benefits:

  • Immunity: Mushrooms contain beta-glucans, a type of polysaccharide that has been shown to activate white blood cells, making them stronger and more efficient fighters against diseases (1). Research has shown cordyceps’ increases the production of protective immune cells, and enhances immune response. Maitake has been shown to have beneficial effects on the immune system (2), and potent antiviral action. 
  • Heart health: Reishi has been shown to contain compounds that reduce LDL cholesterol and blood pressure; key risk factors for cardiovascular disease (3).
