Four Concentrated Mushroom Extracts For Full Body Support.
Our immune function is complicated. Medicinal mushrooms have the nuance & complexity to match it.
This quartet of powerful, fruiting body medicinal mushroom extracts in a delicious chocolate-y base was formulated by Lily Mazzarella, clinical herbalist and founder of Farmacopia, for optimal immune health.
Organic and pre-extracted for bio-availability of polysaccharides, triterpenes, and other anti-inflammatory and immune modulating compounds, this tasty formula is rounded out with a hint of cardamom for synergy and digestion. Add to coffee, lattes, smoothies, or enjoy straight up!
Cordyceps—Cordyceps has been studied for its benefits on endurance and stamina, oxygenation and lung function, and immune modulation. An energizing tonic for building strength, resilience and reserves.
Reishi—Reishi is a supremely useful immune modulator and respiratory tonic, appropriate in both under and overactive immune states. In addition to its well-researched anti-viral and anti-cancer effects, Reishi exhibits potent anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory effects. It benefits nearly every body system—liver, cardiovascular, adrenals, and not least, the nervous system! In traditional Chinese medicine Reishi is used for its calming effects—a tonic for restlessness, insomnia and deficiency states.
Chaga—Chaga boasts the highest ORAC (antioxidant) rating of any food, making it a potent anti-inflammatory and free-radical scavenger (free radicals are compounds that damage and age our cells). Chaga’s compounds have exhibited anti-tumor effects, and appear to be useful in managing inflammation, high blood sugar, and high blood pressure. And, super cool fact: Chaga extracts some of its beneficial anti-inflammatory compounds from the tree it grows on!
Coriolus—Otherwise known as “Turkey Tails,” these gorgeous forest dwellers contain a host of compounds that benefit the human immune system. Its phenols and flavonoids are anti-inflammatory, while its polysaccharides have been well-researched (in humans!) for various cancers, including breast, colorectal and lung. Like other mushrooms, Coriolus also supports gut health!
Contains the equivalent of .9 grams of medicinal mushroom extract per milliliter--roughly a dropperful.
