Mushrooms have been valued for their medicinal properties for five
millennia, and the ability of mushrooms to modulate immune functions has
been scientifically researched for about 50 years. Numerous studies have
shown that mushrooms possess potent immune-stimulating properties. And
unlike many immune support ingredients, mushrooms are ideal for everyday
immune support. The beta-glucans from mushrooms bind to receptors on immune
cells such as macrophages. The beta-glucans are recognized by the immune
system as “foreign” molecules thus stimulating and activating the immune
system by their presence. The different structures of the various
beta-glucans have different affinities to different receptor sites and
thus generate markedly different results. This creates a broad-based immune
How do Mushroom Supplements work?
Mushroom Supplements belong to a class of immunomodulators known as
biological response modifiers which are capable of stimulating immune
functions. Mushrooms enhance the cellular immune function and stimulate
immunity in the body generally, to help maintain a correct balance between
cellular and humoral immunity.
Mushroom Supplements have been used in China for about 3,000 years, and the
purified extract of Mushroom Supplements has been widely used in Japan for
nearly 40 years. There have been over 300 studies conducted worldwide with
numerous published clinical trials. This mushroom is listed as a dietary
supplement in American Herbal Pharmacopoeia.

Lion's Mane Mushroom Facts:
This species has many names including the bearded tooth mushroom and
the pom pom mushroom. It is sometimes called the hedgehog mushroom,
although that name usually refers to a different species altogether,
All species of Hericium are considered saprotrophs, meaning they feed
on dead material. Hericium erinaceus is also a parasite, meaning it
attacks and kills living trees.
They're found in late summer to fall on dead or dying hardwood trees,
especially oak and beech. They grow in North America, China, Japan, and
This doesn't look like your typical mushroom. It has no real cap and no
stem. Instead it sports long spines (greater than 1 cm) coming out from
a single clump.
Their color is mainly white, although they become brown or yellow with
age. Their spore print is white as well.
This is not a common species of mushroom, so finding one may be a rare
treat. They grow higher up on trees rather than at the base, which
means that they're also often missed during a mushroom hunt.
There are several species in the Hericium genus that are referred to as
"lion's mane" in North America. This article is specifically about
Hericium erinaceus, but you may also hear about these types of
