Herbs of Gold Mushroom 5 Complex is a blend of mushroom extracts traditionally used in chinese medicine to help maintain a healthy immune system. Lentinula edodes, commonly known as Shiitake mushroom, is a powerful and natural way to strengthen the body's defences. Research on this mushroom alone indicates that improves general immunity, indicated by an increase in cell proliferation and secretory IgA production 1.
Though our exposure to viruses or bacteria may still increased, such as working in childcare or retail, our immune system's response to these infectious agents can be improved. This means that, exposure to infections in the past that were only barely able to overcome the body's defences, may not cause noticeable illness in the future. This is the power of creating a robust and healthy immune system. Herbs of Gold Mushroom 5 Complex contains 2,000mg of Shiitake mushroom per capsule.
Herbs of Gold Mushroom 5 Complex contains Ganoderma lucidum, or Reishi mushroom, another powerful mushroom and natural medicine to help strengthen the immune system. Clinical research indicates that this mushroom has the ability to increase percentages of CD3, CD4 and CD8 lymphocyte percentages 2. Perhaps even more potent is Cordyceps, which has more than 21 clinically approved medicinal uses, including immunomodulator and antioxidant 3. In addition, Herbs of Gold Mushroom 5 Complex contains Snow Fungus and Turkey Tail—vegan friendly!—which are all potent mushroom extracts.
Herbs of Gold Mushroom 5 Complex is a fantastic immune fortifying product that can be used year round, or just through the colder months of the year when infections tend to be more prevalent and the immune system seems a little bit weaker, which may occur due to lower Vitamin D levels. Lower vitamin D levels occur due to reduced time spent outside with sun exposure and decreased availability of the types of UVB rays needed to stimulate production of this hormone-like vitamin.
A lower availability of UVB rays occurs due to these rays having to penetrate a thicker portion of the ozone layer before it reaches our skin. That's winter for you! Herbs of Gold Mushroom 5 Complex contains powerful tonifying mushroom extracts that can also be used to support general health and stamina, or for the sports and exercise enthusiast. This product may relieve the symptoms of colds and upper respiratory tract infections, supporting the immune system and strength of the body in general.
