Mushroom Advantage provides, Maitake, Shiitake, Reishi and Cordyceps Mushrooms all in one powerful synergistic formula. Actually, powerful is an understatement. Its potency is self explanatory once you read the benefits of each mushroom itself. Let’s check it out:
Although immune system support has often received much of the spotlight in shiitake mushroom research, recent study results involving support of the cardiovascular system have caught the attention of many researchers. In particular, recent studies have shown the ability of shiitake mushrooms to help
protect us against cardiovascular diseases (including atherosclerosis) by preventing too much immune cell binding to the lining of our blood vessels. In order for immune cells and other materials to bind onto our blood vessel linings, certain protein molecules—called adhesion molecules—must be produced and sent into action. By helping to block the adhesion molecule production process, substances in shiitake mushrooms can help protect our blood vessels.
Maitake, also known as hen of the woods, is a large mushroom native to Japan, North America and Europe. Often found growing in clumps around the base of oak trees, maitake can reach a weight of 50 pounds. Scientific study shows the extract of this highly prized edible mushroom may have potential benefits for cholesterol and blood sugar levels, immune function and cancer treatment and prevention.
Reishi mushroom contains chemicals that seem to have a variety of potentially beneficial effects, including activity against tumors (cancer) and beneficial effects on the immune system. Reishi mushroom is used for boosting the immune system; viral infections such as the flu (influenza), swine flu, and avian flu; lung conditions including asthma and bronchitis; heart disease and contributing conditions such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol; kidney disease; cancer; and liver disease.
Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinensis, Sphaeria sinensis) grows primarily in the mountains of Tibet, where dedicated hunters scour the slopes to find this prized fungi. Traditionally used in Chinese medicine to treat a number of ailments, cordyceps is especially intriguing to modern medical researchers for its ability to inhibit the growth, division, and proliferation of cancer cells in the body. Benefits of cordyceps can be used for a wide range of conditions, such as:
• Sexual dysfunction
• Immune supplement
• some cancers
