We know many of you already drink a daily cup of cacao :-) What if you could take it to the next level with the help of our fungal friends?
Today, we'll focus on ImmuniBoost as it can serve as an incredible support for your body this season to boost your immune system and support nervous system and brain function regulation.
Below we cover the various mushrooms in this blend and how they have been shown to support our bodies, and a yummy recipe for how you can implement this superfood into your life now.
4 Reasons Why ImmuniBoost Can Be Your Biggest Health Friend
Immuniboost is a synergistic blend of four powerful mushrooms: Reishi, Chaga, Phellinus, and Turkey Tail. Together they help our immune system perform better, shielding the body against cancers and viral, bacterial, fungal & parasitic infections. The high triterpenoid content also offers anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.*
Below we offer more details on the benefits of each mushroom!

Considered the King (or Queen) of mushrooms! According to historical accounts, Taoist priests used Reishi for longevity, and they knew that Reishi cures pathogens in the chest. It has been shown that it is successful in the treatment of asthma and other respiratory conditions. Reishi is also a potent adaptogen which means it helps our bodies adapt to stressors, giving physical support for nervous system health.
The darkest in color of all the mushrooms we use, Chaga is nutrient-dense with copious amounts of minerals, vitamins, and nutrients such as zinc, B-complex vitamins, copper, selenium, and magnesium, amongst many other minerals, amino acids, and a slew of antioxidants. Chaga supports the immune system through regulation of cytokines (as suggested by research on mice), which are the immune system's chemical messengers, which in turn helps in fighting inflammation in the body. You can read more in depth about this magical mushroom here. Chaga is also an adaptogen just like Reishi.
This woody textured mushroom is as powerful as the trees that it grows on. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, a study done on Phellinus showed that it has strong anti-tumor effects and has immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-angiogenic, and anti-oxidant effects. You can read the study here. Phellinus, also known as Meshima, has traditionally been used in Chinese medicine to treat digestive problems such as an upset stomach and diarrhea.
Beautiful, multi-colored Turkey Tail boasts one of the highest beta-glucans contents of any mushroom. Mushroom beta-glucans stimulate and activate the human immune system, so measuring beta-glucan content is one of the best indicators of immunological potency. Turkey Tail Mushroom also has prebiotic abilities and helps regulate the bacteria in the gut.
With this we’re just scratching the surface of the amazing benefits of each of these mushrooms. Please know that there is so much more to each of these mushrooms, and they all contain similar biochemistry such as beta-glucans, polysaccharides, anti-oxidants, and minerals. We hope you continue learning about mushrooms with us and that you enjoy the amazing elixir below!
