Full Spectrum Blend of Five-Certified Organic Beneficial Mushrooms (Shiitake, Reishi, Mesima, Poria and Turkey Tail) are grown at a certified organic farm in the U.S. and are non-hallucinogenic and non-toxic.

Many mushroom varieties have been studied intensively for their beneficial properties. In fact, all edible mushrooms seem to possess beneficial properties to combat a variety of ailments.

Mushrooms are reported to have the following benefits:

  • Supports Immune Function
  • Promotes Heart & Respiratory Health
  • Antioxidant Protection & Detoxification
  • Improves Liver & Kidney Function
  • Helps Prevent Inflammation
  • Support Blood Sugar & Blood Pressure within Normal Ranges
  • Helps Maintain Normal Histamine Levels to Prevent Seasonal Allergies

Here are five well-studied medicinal mushrooms and some of their health benefits, according to recent studies.

Poria (Poria cocos) contains several substances thought to promote health, including polysaccharides (a type of carbohydrate that appears to affect immune function) and triterpenoids (a class of compounds with antioxidant effects).

Reishi mushroom, which is known to the scientific community as ganoderma lucidum, has been rigorously studied.

Phellinus Linteus can boost the body’s immune system. This is due to the presence of Beta D-Glucan and Lectin. These two polysaccharide-protein complexes possess properties that control the immune system. It is also hailed as having properties that can regulate blood sugar levels.

Shiitake mushrooms have been used for medicinal purposes for over 6,000 years and have become the Asian symbol for longevity. With its rich sources of selenium, iron, dietary fiber, protein and vitamin C, research has shown significant benefits such as antimicrobial, antiviral, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antioxidant properties as well as cardiovascular & hepatic benefits.

Turkey Tail is a  super, power-filled mushroom, with researchers noting its health benefits, particularly in supporting the immune system.

Suggested Serving: 1 teaspoon (2 grams) per 50 lbs of weight daily (approximately 64 servings for a 50 lb dog). Each teaspoon contains approximately 2 grams (2,000 mg) of organic active mushroom mycelium and fruiting body preparation in equal portions of 400 mg of each.

Size: 4.5 oz. resealable bag

Scientific Conclusion: the benefits of mushrooms seem to exist, because of the presence of polysaccharides (complex sugar molecules) called beta glucans in their cell walls. Beta glucans are present in mushrooms, algae, bacteria, fungi, and yeast. Early human clinical trials with beta glucans have confirmed that they have an immune strengthening effect and are safe to consume, with minimal to no side effects.
