What are the benefits of Medicinal Mushrooms?
Medicinal mushrooms are edible superfoods that have been used for centuries for medicinal purposes. Many being extremely anti-viral and known to help support a healthy immune system, medicinal mushrooms have been used in ancient China and Japan for balancing a healthy diet, and have been used as a functional food for specific objectives such as:
•Promoting sustained energy and fatigue reduction, supporting respiratory function and the body's natural response to inflammation*
•Supporting healthy brain function, stimulating the growth and repair of nerve cells, and delivering enzymes to support digestion and absorption of nutrients for gut health*
•Providing anti aging support, promoting healthy hair, skin and nails, and supporting the body's natural response to inflammation*

Mushroom Science 101
The Immune System
Since your body can't naturally break down the mushroom cell walls, when choosing a mushroom supplement, it is vital that it is either extracted or prepared with a specific heat-treatment like Adaptogenin™ to give your body's immune system access to all the immune supporting constituents (polysaccarhides, beta glucans, terpenes etc.) hidden in the mushroom cell walls.
Polysaccharides and beta glucans increase the activity & impact of NK cells and macrophages.
What are Polysaccharides, Beta glucans, Macrophages and a Natural Killer Cells?!
Macrophages provide a first line of defense in the innate immune response to pathogens. They have the unique ability to engulf material and eliminate debris. In addition, they release biologically active proteins called cytokines and recruit other immune system cells to stop infections from spreading etc.
Natural killer (NK) cells are another vital part of your immune system which are a part of the lymphoid linage of white blood cells. When cytokines are secreted from macrophages it activates and facilitates the entry of NK cells into tissue to eliminate infected or stressed cells. The body also responds to viruses by secreting these cytokines because they disrupt viral replication and make the viruses more susceptible to attack by NK cells.
Beta glucans are a type of Polysaccaride which are basically carbohydrates. They are present in plants, animals, and microorganisms, and they engage in a variety of physiological functions. Due to the discovery of their immunoregulatory and anti-tumor activities, polysaccharides became a popular topic of research in pharmacology, especially in immunopharmacology. Mushrooms are an important source of natural polysaccharides. Pharmacological and clinical studies have shown that polysaccharides have many functions, such as immune regulation, anti-tumor activity, anti-inflammatory activity, anti-viral functions, anti-radiation functions, and a hypoglycaemic effect.
Don't be fooled by inexpensive mushroom supplement companies! If it doesn't say the medicinal mushrooms are extracted or heat-treated, the potentially important health benefits such as anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and immune-enhancing constituents are not bio-available and you will be wasting your money. That is why they are so inexpensive. Make sure to only buy mushrooms that are extracted or heat-treated like Adaptogenin™ !
Low priced mushrooms means 2 things:
1). Either they are potentially dangerous because they are Chinese grown so the Organic certification is worthless,
2). The mushrooms are not extracted and a waste of money. Simple.
Buy from Adaptogen Superfoods™!
Quality is King
"Organic" is not good enough. Mushrooms are a great source of medicinal nutrients but even if they are organic they can still pass along dangerous heavy metals and other toxins. If they are grown near industrialized areas, pollution from the air or water can be transmitted from the soil directly into the mycelial network of the mushroom. It is absolutely vital that your mushrooms are not only certified organic, but are not grown in environments or countries with pollution and other industrial toxins.
Did you know...
80%-90% of mushrooms are imported from China and that most of the medicinal mushroom supplement companies source their mushrooms from there? At Adaptogen Superfoods™ we not only use mushrooms that are certified organic, but they are guaranteed to be grown in the United States where policies have been put in place to protect the consumer from these dangers. Don't gamble with your well-being. Make sure your mushroom supplement says "Grown in the USA"! Support your well-being, and America!
