Medicinal mushrooms and immune support
In my last post I explained why it is important to have a robust immune system. The easiest way to support your immune system is with a supplement called ImmuCore. In previous emails I highlighted all the ingredients of this supplement except for medicinal mushrooms. Today I would highlight a few common mushrooms that are in ImmuCore.
There has been a growing interest in the health benefits of mushrooms. In fact, multiple drugs are derived or modeled from mushrooms. Lovastatin, cyclosporin A, Taxol, beta-blockers, and multiple antibiotics (penicillin, amoxicillin, cephalosporin).
Turkey Tail mushrooms modulate the immune system by improve gut health and is active against acute and chronic viruses.
Reishi mushrooms enhance immune support to protect against acute and chronic infections.
Shiitake mushrooms are traditionally used to improve energy, digestion, circulation, pain control, metabolism, and immune support. Under cooking shiitake mushrooms can cause topical dermatitis insensitive individuals.
Oyster mushrooms contain lovastatin, in a natural form, and andergothioneine which protects against oxidative stress. This mushroom is used for individuals with immune suppression and balancing the immune system
ImmuCore has a proprietary blend of these mushrooms and a few others with vitamins and minerals that have been shown to enhance immune health. It is much easier and safer to take 1 tablet daily than to try to take all the vitamins, minerals, and mushrooms separately. ImmuCore is a synergistic blend to enhance the immune system.
I have extended the 10% discount on ImmuCore until November 30, 2023.
