Superfood mushrooms are a kingdom of herbs that are very powerful health-promoting agents. People have been consuming them for thousands of years for their many great benefits. The power and incredible intelligence of the superfood mushrooms work to predominantly train, build and rejuvenate our immune system.
There are many compounds, constituents, and nutrients in medicinal mushrooms that benefit human health, but the most well studied and tested are carbohydrate molecules called polysaccharides (long-chain sugars), more specifically beta-glucans, and the triterpenes. The polysaccharides and triterpenes are extremely beneficial to our health as they are believed to stimulate and strongly enhance our immune system. They have shown to work to increase T-cell activity, macrophage activity, natural killer cell and neutrophil activity.
This is very important for any kind of pathogenic invasion or disease that may be taking place in the body where the immune system is called to respond.
The triterpenes help modulate the immune response and have been reported to have adaptogenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-hypertensive and anti-allergenic effects. Superfood mushrooms contain anti-viral activity and have high antioxidant values comparable to resveratrol. They also act as prebiotics in the gut to help establish good flora in the body. They increase the good bacteria and suppress the bad bacteria and fungal overgrowth conditions like candida.
Superfood mushrooms enhance our own intelligence and wisdom, strengthen the mind, increase memory and prolong life. These nourishing tonics help build the body's resistance, aid in detoxification, affect the blood, protect and support the functions of the Heart, Liver, Kidneys, Lungs, skin, and joints. Superfood mushrooms are powerful allies that help support and nourish life.
Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma Lucidum) is one of the most revered and famous tonic herbs of all time. It is the most widely studied herb in the world and has been used in Asia for thousands of years to strengthen the immune system, relieve stress, increase vitality, and promote healthy aging and overall wellbeing.
Reishi mushroom is a supreme adaptogenic herb that supports and regulates the immune system, protects the cardiovascular system, improves oxygen utilisation and liver function. It is precisely this activity that helps provide additional power and clarity for us to achieve a superior level of life. Reishi is the ultimate anti-stress herb.
