Mushrooms have long been used by ancient civilisations for their health benefits. This magical mix of mushrooms, adaptogens, and superfoods is designed to support a strong and healthy immune system while managing stress.
Our Organic Mushroom Immune Power is a potent immunity blend with Maitake, Reishi, Shiitake, Lion’s Mane and Chaga mushrooms PLUS Astragalus root, Acerola fruit, and black pepper – all in one convenient capsule, providing important nutrients (such as Vitamin C and vegan Vitamin D) and active ingredients.
As well as its primary immune-boosting properties, this special complex supports everything from cognitive function, mental well-being, and energy levels, to healthy digestion, lower levels of inflammation, protection from oxidative stress, and general wellness.
The ingredients used in this food supplement have been certified organic by the Soil Association, meaning no toxic pesticides or fertilisers have been used resulting in a “clean” product. Being organic also helps the mushrooms to maintain their bio-availability and keeps them nutrient-dense, as some nutrients can be lost when non-organic ingredients are used.
Why are Mushrooms so Great?
Mushrooms have been used for thousands of years because they’re loaded with nutrients that boost your body in multiple ways:
- Helps Fight Infection: Shiitakes produce interferon, a group of natural proteins that stops viruses from multiplying.
- Support the Immune System: Chaga extract promotes the formation of beneficial cytokines — specialised proteins that regulate the immune system. Chaga also stimulates white blood cells, which are essential for fighting off harmful bacteria or viruses.
- Boost Energy & Brain Function: Shiitake mushrooms are a great source of B vitamins, which help support adrenal function and turn nutrients from food into useable energy. They also help balance hormones naturally and break through “brain fog” to maintain focus.
- Provide vitamin D: Vitamin D is important for bone health as well as reducing the risk of heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune diseases and other illnesses.
- Support Heart Health: Oxidised cholesterol molecules tend to attach to the walls of arteries, causing them to harden and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. Lion’s Mane extract can help prevent the oxidation of cholesterol in the bloodstream.
Plus our Organic Mushroom Immune Power combines these super mushrooms with Vitamin C rich Acerola fruit (a powerful antioxidant which helps your body fight disease and infections) and Astralagus Root which helps to reduce stress and promote energy and vitality.
Shiitake mushroom: contain a number of beneficial compounds that protect cells from oxidative damage, help reduce cholesterol levels, and support cardiovascular health. Shiitakes are also unique because they contain all eight essential amino acids, along with linoleic acid (an essential fatty acid) which helps with weight loss and building muscle. It also has bone-building benefits, improves digestion, and reduces food allergies and sensitivities. We’ve used them in our Organic Mushroom Immune Power because they help to fight infection (by producing interferon, a group of natural proteins that stops viruses from multiplying), support immune function (by way of providing important vitamins, minerals, and enzymes), have antimicrobial properties and provide vitamin D (important for bone health as well as reducing the risk of heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune diseases and other illnesses. It is vital for the absorption and metabolism of calcium and phosphorus too).
Chaga mushroom: for centuries, it has been used as a traditional remedy, mainly to boost immunity and overall health. They are high in fibre and rich in antioxidants. We’ve used them in our Organic Mushroom Immune Power because they help to fight inflammation (inflammation is a natural response of your immune system. However, long-term inflammation is linked to conditions like heart disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Studies suggest that Chaga extract can positively impact immunity by reducing long-term inflammation and fighting harmful bacteria and viruses. What’s more, other studies demonstrate that Chaga can prevent the production of harmful cytokines, which trigger inflammation and are associated with disease).
Maitake mushroom: a type of adaptogen which assists the body in fighting against any type of mental or physical difficulty. They also work to regulate systems of the body that have become unbalanced. Maiitakes also help to boost immunity (they are rich in antioxidants, beta-glucans, vitamins B and C, copper, potassium, fibre, minerals and amino acids) and lower cholesterol.
Reishi mushroom: help to boost immunity by increasing the antioxidant level in the body. Studies have shown that it can stimulate white blood cells, which are critical parts of the immune system. In one study, the fungus improved lymphocyte function, which helps fight infections in athletes exposed to stressful conditions help to fight fatigue, regulate mood and promote general wellness.
Lion’s Mane mushroom: contain bioactive substances that can have beneficial effects on the body, particularly the heart and gut. Lion’s Mane mushrooms can also help to protect the brain (the brain’s ability to grow and form new connections typically declines with age. Studies have found that Lion’s Mane mushrooms contain special compounds that can stimulate the growth of brain cells). It can also help to lower inflammation and protect against oxidative stress (chronic inflammation and oxidative stress are believed to be at the root of many modern illnesses). They also help to boost immunity (by increasing the activity of the intestinal immune system, which protects the body from pathogens that enter the gut through the mouth or nose).
Acerola fruit (and vitamin C): provide a naturally bio-available and powerful source of vitamin C, which is fully absorbed by the body. 1 small acerola cherry contains around 80mg of vitamin C – this is 30 times the amount found in oranges (of the same weight).
Vitamin C is involved in a large number of biological processes. It is used to make protein that makes skin, joints, and bones strong. Vitamin C speeds up wound healing and helps to form red blood cells and prevent bleeding. Your body’s immune system relies on vitamin C to keep the disease-fighting white blood cells active. Vitamin C also helps your body absorb iron and folic acid effectively and turn food into energy.
Astragalus root: helps to reduce stress and promote energy and vitality. A number of studies have shown that certain compounds in Astragalus root have measurable telomerase-stimulating and enhancing effects, which have been linked to increased longevity, anti-ageing, and DNA repair. Astragalus has also become notable over the years for its powerful immune-boosting properties – studies have shown that regular use of Astragalus root leads to an increase in disease-fighting immune antibodies, stimulation of T-cells (which are powerful immune-regulating white blood cells), and an increase in levels of the antiviral compound interferon.
Black pepper: Piperine is the alkaloid within black pepper that is responsible for its pungency. It increases thermogenic activity in the body – the way of developing cellular energy – and this results in an increase in the metabolic rate. Black pepper is also a very good anti-inflammatory agent. Black pepper has been included in this formula specifically because it increases the absorption and utilisation of the other beneficial ingredients.
