      Studies have shown that reishi can affect the genes in white blood cells, which are critical parts of the immune system. These studies have also found that some forms of reishi may alter inflammation pathways in white blood cells. Within the mushroom, there are several molecules with antioxidant properties, including triterpenoids, polysaccharides and peptidoglycans, that may be responsible for its health effects.*

      Reishi is considered an adaptogen. It helps your body regulate itself to have a more balanced and healthy response to stress. Reishi’s reputation to support an improved stress response has been supported by a study showing it lowers fatigue and increases a sense of well-being. Another study showed lower levels of anxiousness in those who consumed this mushroom.*

      Maitake mushroom is rich in bioactive polysaccharides, especially D-fraction, MD-fraction, and SX-fraction. These protein polysaccharides have well-documented immune-protecting and antitumor properties. The D-fraction in maitake mushrooms has been shown to boost production of lymphokines (protein mediators) and interleukins (secreted proteins) that improve your immune response. Additionally, researchers suggest that this mushroom can fight the growth and reproduction of cancerous cells.*

      The beta glucan, SX-fraction, found in maitake has been shown in clinical trials to lower blood glucose levels. It helps to activate insulin receptors, while reducing insulin resistance in diabetes management.*

      Studies suggest that chaga extract can positively impact immunity by reducing long-term inflammation and fighting harmful bacteria and viruses. By promoting the formation of beneficial specialized proteins, or cytokines, that regulate the immune system, chaga stimulates white blood cells, which are essential for fighting off harmful bacteria or viruses.*

      Researchers believe that the antioxidants present in chaga are responsible for its effects on supporting healthy cholesterol levels. In an eight-week study in rats with high cholesterol, chaga extract reduced “bad” LDL cholesterol, total cholesterol and triglycerides while increasing antioxidant levels. Similar studies gave the same results and observed that — in addition to reducing “bad” LDL cholesterol — chaga increases “good” HDL cholesterol.*

      When free radicals become too abundant in your body due to pollution, exposure or stress, your skin tends to suffer in many different ways including the onset of aging. The antioxidants in chaga fight these free radicals to help slow the aging process down, essentially eliminating the excessive oxidative stress that may be present in the skin and prevents the onset of wrinkles, discoloration, and acne.*

      Shiitake are rich in polysaccharides like lentinans and other beta-glucans. These compounds protect against cell damage, help your immune system, and boost white blood cell production for fighting off microbes. Polysaccharides also have anti-inflammatory properties. One study gave people two dried shiitake daily. After one month, their immune markers improved and their inflammation levels dropped.*

      Several compounds in shiitake have antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal effects. As antibiotic resistance is growing, some scientists think it’s important to explore the antimicrobial potential of shiitake.*

      Some studies suggest that consuming cordyceps benefits immune function and can help optimize the health of the cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine and reproductive systems. This is due to anti-inflammatory compounds like polysaccharides, modified nucleosides and cyclosporines. Cordyceps may be especially beneficial in the treatment of inflammatory-related conditions, such as Crohn’s disease, arthritis, leaky gut and asthma.*

      Cordyceps are thought to increase the body’s production of the molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is essential for delivering energy to the muscles. This may improve the way your body uses oxygen, especially during exercise.*

      King trumpet mushrooms have especially high levels of ergothioneine, an antioxidant found in the mushroom’s mycelium and fruit bodies that helps reduce damage from free radicals and oxidative stress. Unlike other nutrients, L-Ergothioneine is not made by the human body and must be sourced from other sources in our diet. King trumpet mushrooms also contain a high quantity of selenium, another essential antioxidant.*

      Studies have identified anti-inflammatory properties of these mushrooms. This suggests that they could be a useful inclusion as part of a diet focused on reducing inflammation. Conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and muscular pain are usually characteristic of chronic inflammation and could all potentially benefit from a dietary regime that’s high in anti-inflammatory foods, including king trumpet mushrooms.*

      These powerful superfoods have been shown to lower cholesterol and help with weight loss. They’ve been linked to a lower risk of breast cancer and prostate cancer. And king trumpet mushroom extracts have also been shown to have anti-viral properties and to support bone health.*

      Royal Sun has exceptional properties, including beta-glucans and proteoglycans, to improve the natural immune response. This mushroom can provide great support to combat any condition relating to immune health such as autoimmune disorders and allergies. Additionally, compounds in royal sun help to strengthen the body’s defense barriers towards infections.*

      Royal sun contains unique compounds that are very useful for histamine related allergies.*

      Royal sun mushrooms contain agents that work to protect liver function and help liver recovery.*

      Studies have found that lion’s mane mushrooms contain two special compounds, hericenones and erinacines, that can stimulate the growth of brain cells. Additionally, animal studies have found that lion’s mane may help protect against Alzheimer’s disease, a degenerative brain disease that causes progressive memory loss. A study in older adults with mild cognitive impairment found that consuming 3 grams of powdered lion’s mane mushroom daily for four months significantly improved mental functioning, but these benefits disappeared when.*

      While there are many causes of anxiety and depression, chronic inflammation could be a major contributing factor. New research has found that lion’s mane mushroom extract has anti-inflammatory effects that can reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression in mice. One small study in menopausal women found that eating cookies containing lion’s mane mushrooms daily for one month helped reduce self-reported feelings of irritation and anxiety.*

      Turkey tail contains an impressive array of antioxidants, including phenols and flavonoids. One study detected over 35 different phenolic compounds in a sample of turkey tail mushroom extract, along with the flavonoid antioxidants quercetin and baicalein. Phenol and flavonoid antioxidants promote immune system health by reducing inflammation and stimulating the release of protective compounds.*

      Keeping a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria in your gut is critical for maintaining a strong immune system. Turkey tail contains prebiotics, which help nourish these helpful bacteria. Turkey tail mushroom may positively impact gut bacterial balance by enhancing the growth of beneficial bacteria while suppressing harmful species. Having healthy levels of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium bacteria has been linked to improved intestinal symptoms like diarrhea, enhanced immune system, reduced cholesterol levels, lower risks of certain cancers and improved digestion.*
