Maitake, Shiitake, Reishi and Agaricus are medicinal mushrooms. They contain beta-glucan, which may enhance immune activity against Infections, Viruses, Fevers, Colds, the FLU and Cancer, as well as reduce allergies (where there is inappropriate immune system activity).
Today's savvy consumers are searching for natural and organic immune support. Proven effectiveness is especially important in the area of immune support because it is often difficult to "feel " the effects of immune enhancing products, which are used primarily for prevention.
Researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Research Hospital found that Maitake enhanced several indicators of healthy immune function in a multi-phase, U.S. Government funded human clinical trial. Research at the University of Louisville has also shown that Maitake (Grifola frondosa) provides a high level of immune support, particularly in the body's first line of immune defense, phagocytosis. These studies have been published in peer reviewed journals.
Consumers recognize that enhancing and maintaining a healthy immune system is vital for achieving optimum health. The daily challenges of modern living can significantly weaken the immune system and increase the likelihood of illness. These challenges include stress, environmental toxins, increased exposure to viruses and bacteria, poor nutrition, smoking, dieting, and being in close proximity to others (such as in classrooms and airplanes). As a result, immune support is no longer a seasonal concern but is, instead, a vital necessity throughout the year.
Maitake (Grifola frondosa) is an adaptogenic "host defense potentiator ", activating and enhancing the actions of macrophages and other immune cells, all of which are vital to a strong and balanced immune system. Maitake is also recognized as an important cellular protection enhancer.
