Mushrooms have a rich and intriguing history of use as both food and medicine that dates back more than ten thousand years. They are loaded with valuable constituents that work in myriad ways to support host defense—the body’s natural response to environmental and microbial stressors. The most promising amongst these are beta-glucans, protein-bound polysaccharides, and arabinoxylanes. These compounds support the immune system both directly by promoting normal microbial balance, and indirectly by stimulating production of cells involved in host defense.*

Additional mushroom compounds including triterpenes and sterole are powerful antioxidants, support hormonal health, promote a healthy inflammation response, support healthy cholesterol levels, maintain normal blood pressure, and support circulation and respiration.*
