This powerful antioxidant is comprised of 25 different nutrients making it the most complete immune support formula available!
Beta-Glucans & Graviola Leaf
Beta-glucans are kinds of harmless polysaccharides (sugar-chains) that occur in many kinds of bacteria and fungi. The body associates beta-glucans with pathogenic microorganisms, so when the body encounters beta-glucans it is prepared. There are healthy, edible sources of beta-glucans (such as from Saccharomyces cerevisiae) that are known to support the immune system. There has been a lot of exciting research about Graviola (soursop, Annona muricata) leaf in recent times. Various studies have concluded that Graviola has the potential for the support of the immune system.
Green tea supports immunity Green tea antioxidants offer antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral effects that support immunity. Bonus: Its antibacterial properties also fight bad breath. In addition, green tea acts as a prebiotic, food for the beneficial gut bacteria tied to healthy immunity.
Maitake is a culinary and medicinal mushroom that has shown anti-cancer activity on breast cancer, melanoma, and hepatoma cells in animal studies. Proteoglucan, a component of maitake, has been associated with the immune-stimulating effects of the mushroom. In mouse models, proteoglycan has been shown to decrease mammary tumor cell behavior. Further, in in-vitro and animal studies, polysaccharides found in maitake have been shown to exert antiviral activity against hepatitis B and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
Reishi is commonly referred to as the “king of mushrooms” or the “mushroom of immortality”. It has been shown to prevent or treat various diseases and modulate the inflammation associated with a high-cholesterol diet. The health effects of this mushroom may be a result of its ability to regulate microbiota composition, as the polysaccharides found in reishi demonstrate prebiotic effects and may increase counts of beneficial bacteria in the host.
Shiitake mushrooms have been traditionally used to treat conditions such as the common cold. A four-week clinical trial suggests that shiitake intake was associated with favorable changes in secretion patterns of various immune compounds. These changes may indicate an improvement in gut immunity and anti-inflammatory response. (4) As with many other mushroom varieties, shiitake may have anticancer effects. Lentinan, which is a glucan derived from shiitake, is currently used as a complementary treatment for tumors, particularly in China and Japan.
