Medicinal Mushroom Resources
Overview and Benefits
Medicinal Mushrooms have many benefits for your body. As all body function is cellular, from that perspective the benefits of mushrooms on cellular function is vast.
Mushrooms Amazing Characteristic
Mushrooms are not plants. -200 million years older than plants. -7 times more species than plants. -Breathe in oxygen and give off carbon dioxide just like humans.
The Mycelium Story
Mycelium is like the root structure of the mushroom. Each cubic inch of soil contains up to 8 miles of mycelium. Think about that for a moment.
How the mushrooms are grown and harvested
Grown on a gluten free organic oat substrate with the husks intact. -This increases the potency of the mushrooms. -Grown using a proprietary process known as Solid State Fermentation. -This allows for the full capture of the 2-4,000 enzymes and other bio-active compounds that the mushrooms make.
All 10 of these medicinal mushrooms boost and balance our immune system. Our immune system has offensive players like Natural Killer Cells and a defense which are our antibodies. They must work together to have a winning team. The medicinal mushrooms team contains a huge array of bio-active compounds that stimulate, potentiate and modulate immune function.
