Enhances Immune Resistance
The reishi mushroom has been one of the most revered and sought after herbs in Asia for generations, remaining in continued use for more than 2,500 years. Used traditionally as a general tonic, reishi has been found to support immune resistance in modern animal and in vitro studies. Planetary Formulas Reishi Mushroom Supreme contains additional renowned tonics and adaptogens. It was formulated to include some of the finest of all Chinese herbs for supporting immune defenses.
Reishi: Botanical Immune Support
Reishi mushroom is one of the most highly prized botanicals of Chinese herbalism. Traditionally it was used as a general tonifier for preserving health and promoting longevity, as well as for promoting mental well-being. Reishi has been shown to support general and specific immune resistance in modern animal and in vitro studies.
Modern pharmacological research has identified more than 100 oxygenated lanostane triterpenes in the reishi fruiting body and mycelium (the immature but most active growth stage of the mushroom before the fruiting body is developed). The mycelia also contain several constituents that are not present in the mature fruiting body, including triterpenoids, polysaccharides, sterones and an unsaturated fatty acid. Reishi Mushroom Supreme combines a highly concentrated extract of the mature fruiting body with the mycelia biomass, to ensure a broad spectrum of reishi constituents.
Wide Range of Adaptogens
To further augment and enhance the effects of reishi, Planetary Formulas has added a range of tonifiers and adaptogenic herbs, many of which are legendary in their own right. Adaptogens are defined as substances that enhance general adaptive response. They increase resistance against external stressors, have a balancing effect and stabilize normal body functions.
- Shiitake Mushroom is revered throughout Asia as a tonifying mushroom. It is used both as a food and for its health-promoting benefits.
- Siberian Ginseng is one of the most widely researched of all the tonic herbs. It is the primary botanical adaptogen used to enhance the body's ability to adapt to physical and psychological stresses and changes.
- Astragalus is one of the primary immune tonifiers of Chinese herbalism.
- Grifola and Poria Cocos are two more polysaccharide-rich polypores of high repute.
