Mushrooms have been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Medicinal mushrooms have been shown to support the health of the immune system and improve outcomes for a variety of illnesses. Mushrooms used in combination with each other have a multitude of beneficial effects.
Many diseases are linked to immune dysfunction and medicinal mushrooms are believed to have approximately 125 therapeutic effects. Many of the benefits of medicinal mushrooms are derived from polysaccharides found in the cell walls. Polysaccharides have been shown to activate immune response. Certain immune cells have specific receptors for the polysaccharides found in mushrooms which helps explain why mushrooms have such an effect on immunity.
What we see above ground and recognize as a mushroom is the fruit body. The sole purpose of the fruit body is to release spores as part of the reproductive process. Beneath the surface of the soil or tree, the mycelium lives year-round. Mycelium acquire food and break down organic substances in the surrounding soil or wood. When the mycelium is actively digesting food, they excrete digestive enzymes to decompose matter. Before they can use this matter as food, they must deactivate any pathogens and toxins. To do so, they release special polysaccharides and other chemicals inside the cell walls the food passes through. It is believed that this process provides the nutrients that are invaluable to the human immune system and why Immune Defense uses the mushroom mycelia.
Immune Defense is created using a hot water decoction as part of the extraction process. Traditional Chinese Medicine and herbalism in other cultures have always prepared medicinal mushrooms using a hot water decoction. Due to the nature of the mycelia, a hot water extraction releases the bioactive polysaccharide intact and undamaged. The other active compounds in the mycelia are also concentrated into therapeutically effective levels during the hot water extraction process.
