Super Mushroom Provides Super Immune Support

product profile

This time of year, having a strong immune system is more important than ever. The best way to support immune health is with a health-promoting diet,
consistent physical activity and targeted dietary supplements.

For centuries, healers have turned to mushrooms to not only support a healthy immune system, but also to increase energy, restore vitality and support the body’s stress-management system. Scientific research shows why: Mushrooms contain potent polysaccharides known as beta-glucans—plus health-supporting antioxidants and anthocyanins.

Natural Factors Whole Earth & Sea® Super Mushroom immune and energy support formula is one of the best supplements available, charged with the vibrant goodness of nature.

The Natural Way to Support Immune Health
In a recent study, scientists explained why beta-glucans help support immune defenses. Research shows that these natural substances are key components in activating natural killer cell function and macrophages—a type of white blood cell that consumes invaders.
Whole Earth & Sea Super Mushroom packs a strong dose of beta-glucans, thanks to its blend of six organic mushrooms along with Wellmune®, a patented beta-glucan that offers powerful support to maintain healthy immune function.product profile

Super Mushrooms to the Rescue
Every capsule of Super Mushroom includes 50 mg each of organic cordyceps, chaga, lion’s mane, maitake, reishi and shitake mushroom extracts. These extracts are created using a patented fermentation process that results in high levels of beta-glucan polysaccharides,
antioxidants and anthocyanins.

They are called “super mushrooms” for a reason! All six mushrooms have well-known health benefits for immune, antioxidant and cognitive support, as well as adaptogenic activity for increased energy and resistance to stress.

Reishi in particular is heralded for its immune-support activities. In fact, several studies show reishi can help counteract immunosenescence, which is the gradual loss of immune function as we age.

The benefits of Super Mushroom don’t end there. Each Super Mushroom capsule also includes 250 mg of Wellmune beta-glucan.

The Wellmune Solution
Wellmune adds a turbo boost to the health benefits that are naturally inherent in the six different types of mushrooms contained in Whole Earth & Sea Super Mushroom.

Wellmune—derived from a highly purified, proprietary strain of baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)—is designed to prime and support the immune system to better manage the everyday stress that can compromise an otherwise healthy body.

With an investment of over $300 million, Wellmune is the best-studied natural support ingredient for healthy immune function. Dating back to 2008, there have been 19 double-blind clinical trials showing that Wellmune provides significant health benefits for both adults and children.

One trial found that adults who took Wellmune for 12 weeks didn’t miss any work or school days due to a weakened immune system. On the other hand, those who didn’t take Wellmune spent an average of about a day and a half at home due to a weakened immune system.
