This formula uses three different immune system-supportive mushrooms plus a highly specialized ß-glucan polysaccharide from yeast to help maintain the balance between the different aspects of immune function—which in turn helps your body mount a healthy and effective immune response.
β-glucans are polysaccharides: soluble dietary fibers found in baker’s yeast, mushrooms and oats. They help activate your immune system’s primary defenders: macrophages, neutrophils, and natural killer cells, and help your immune system to react faster and smarter when faced with challenges.
ß-glucans are well-recognized for their ability to promote a healthy immune response—a reputation that research now confirms. Several clinical studies have shown the immune promoting benefits of ß-glucans.
Although beta glucans are found in small amounts in foods such as baker’s yeast, mushrooms, and cereal grains, it is easier to achieve clinically studied levels with a daily supplement.
Mushroom Immune with Beta Glucans provides a variety of immune-modulating natural substances including three well-recognized immune health supporting mushrooms, as well as Wellmune®–a best-in-class beta-glucan ingredient from yeast, with numerous clinical studies backing its immune-supportive properties.
The benefits of three types of mushroom
You probably have heard of shiitake and maitake mushrooms, but did you know that they are highly recognized for their immune benefits? We also added the lesser known but equally impressive chaga mushroom. This combination provides nearly one and a half servings of fresh mushrooms to support your healthy immune response.
Our experts evaluated more than 14 ß-glucan ingredients from various sources, and when all was said and done, Wellmune® stood above the pack because this patented ß-glucan from baker’s yeast had the most clinical support for promoting the body’s healthy immune response.
