How It Works
MycoIMMUNE™ is designed to enhance the body’s immune response to help combat viruses, bacteria, and other harmful pathogens.
Research suggests that the natural compounds in MycoIMMUNE™ can optimize overall immune system performance.
- Supports antioxidant activity†
- Promotes internal & external stress resilience†
- Maintains healthy immune function†
- Supports healthy cellular division & function†
This natural formula contains Organic Reishi, Organic Chaga, and Organic Turkey Tail mushroom extracts for all-season immunity support.
Consistent with the rest of our Myco™ mushroom line, MycoIMMUNE™ contains natural ingredients that work synergistically to showcase the unique benefits of medicinal mushrooms. MycoIMMUNE™ contains the three mushrooms most closely involved in healthy immune function. Reishi, Chaga, and Turkey Tail contain potent bioactive compounds to help bolster the body’s natural immune-boosting capabilities.
Long used in Chinese medicine for “immortality and longevity”, Reishi has been shown to increase plasma antioxidant capacity, promoting longevity by facilitating protection of cellular DNA. [1,2,3]
Turkey Tail contains a compound known as “Polysaccharide K” or PSK that has been shown to Polysaccharide K and Coriolus versicolor extracts for lung cancer: a systematic review.  Larger studies are underway to continue to explore the potential of this powerful natural healer.
Other studies reinforcing the immuno-modulating capabilities of Turkey Tail, verifying that PSK “may act to increase leukocyte activation and response through up-regulation of key cytokines. Indeed, natural killer (NK) and lymphocyte-activated killer (LAK) cell activation has been demonstrated in vivo and in vitro, and recent genetic studies reveal increased expression of key immune cytokines in response to treatment with PSK.” 
In yet another study, “protein-bound polysaccharide K (PSK) increased the 5-year disease-free survival rate and reduced the risk of recurrence in a randomised, controlled study for stage II and III colorectal cancer.” 
As reported in this review, numerous recent studies have verified the anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties of medicinal mushrooms, including Chaga.  There are also numerous reports of antibacterial and antiviral properties attributed to medicinal mushrooms, including Chaga, which has been used for centuries in Russian teas and tonics. 
Specifically, Chaga has been shown to selectively kill cancer cells without harming human cells. “These data indicate that Chaga extract has selective cytotoxic effects on human hepatoma cells. This selectivity may be the great advantage of the Chaga extract for therapeutic or preventative use in cancer treatment.” 
Chaga can be used to improved digestive disorders by lowering inflammatory cytokines associated with certain gastrointestinal maladies.
