Description

Reishi mushroom has been traditionally used to boost immune system vitality. Its broad-spectrum benefits have been demonstrated in thousands of studies.(1) An advanced extraction technology has resulted in a new Reishi extract that make its active compounds even more bioavailable.

An abundance of evidence demonstrates that Reishi constituents enhance the protective activity of the body’s hematopoietic stem cells, T-cells, and other crucial immune factors.(2-90) Reishi's immune-supporting compounds include an array of unique polysaccharides, triterpenes, and other constituents,(10,11) many of which assist activation of the cell surface receptors that modulate normal immunity.(12) The Reishi mushroom also supports the body's production of endogenous antioxidant enzymes - such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione - which, in turn, support the body's natural immune defenses against free radical damage.(13,14) Reishi Extract Mushroom Complex delivers powerful compounds and represents the next generation of natural immune support. Reishi extracts standardized to polysaccharides have been available for years, but most do not standardize for triterpenes and include the spores. This full-spectrum extract has multiple components which have shown to support healthy immune function and enhanced longevity in a natural experimental aging model.(15) References 1.
