Liquid Herbal Formula

Mushroom Master is indicated for immune deficiency and is a long-term tonic. It can be used as a preventative when one either wants to avoid or one already finds they are getting weaker and becoming more prone to getting sick and fatigued. This is especially true when stress is great and immune inundation is heavy. This formula helps when one has debility and lethargy of body, mind, and spirit.

Mushroom Master is specific for chemotherapy where the white blood cell count and activity (phagocytosis) are impaired or threatened.

These organic mushrooms are glycosaminoglycan extracts (GAG) whereby the immune-modulating polysaccharide are first extracted in a water extraction process. The herb then goes through an alcohol extraction process to remove other immune-modulating compounds that the water cannot extract. The two liquids are combined to create a full-spectrum mushroom extract.

Our Formula:

  • Reishi
  • Maitake
  • Shiitake
  • Ashwaganda Root
  • Licorie Root

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.

Maitake Mushrooms

The maitake mushroom (Grifola frondosa) grows in clusters at the base of trees (particularly oaks) and is native to the northeastern part of Japan and North America. Valued in traditional Chinese and Japanese botanical medicine as an aid to balance organ function, the mushroom is commonly known as “hen of the woods” in English; in the Asian market, its Japanese name maitake means “dancing mushroom.”

Maitake -
is especially high in antioxidants such as ascorbic acid, tocopherols, phenolic compounds, carotenoids, and L-ergothioneine. It contains complex polysaccharides, which act as immunomodulators and possess antitumor activity. In 2009, a phase 1/2 clinical trial conducted by Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center showed that maitake could stimulate the immune systems of patients with breast cancer. The beta-D-glucan polysaccharides present in maitake have been studied as a potential aid for preventing and treating cancer and as an adjunctive treatment for HIV infection.6 Preliminary research suggests that maitake mushroom extracts can prevent the metastasis of experimentally induced tumors as well as prevent tumor occurrence in normal cells.7*

Additionally, preliminary clinical evidence suggests that maitake mushroom polysaccharides may lower blood glucose in people with type 2 diabetes, possibly by activating insulin receptors.8 Research in rats suggests that maitake mushrooms can lower blood pressure and improve lipid profiles in experimental hyperlipidemia.9,10*

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.*

Maitake - Cholesterol

Preliminary evidence shows that maitake may help lower cholesterol levels, notes CoxHealth Medical Center. A study on laboratory animals published in the October 2011 issue of the "Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry" found that four weeks of supplementation with maitake mushroom extract lowered liver cholesterol levels. Researchers concluded that maitake exerted its effects at the genetic level by increasing activity of genes in the liver that promote lipid transport. By contrast, Hypsizigus marmoreus, or beech mushroom, another mushroom tested in the study, did not show cholesterol-lowering effects.*

Maitake - Blood Sugar

Maitake may help manage blood sugar levels and prevent diabetes, according to a study published in the April 2007 issue of the "Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology." A polysaccharide molecule in maitake, called MT-alpha-glucan, decreased fasting blood sugar and insulin levels and increased levels of glycogen, a short-term storage form of glucose, in the liver. Maitake also increased the ability of insulin to bind to liver cells and improved pancreatic function. Researchers concluded that maitake may be useful for the prevention and management of diabetes by decreasing insulin resistance.*

Maitake - Immune Function

Immune benefits of maitake extract include modulation of cytokines, molecules produced by white blood cells that activate the immune response, according to the University of Wisconsin Botany Department. Maitake exerts its effects by binding to the cell membranes of white blood cells known as macrophages and either activating or inhibiting the release of cytokines. A study published in the summer of 2004 issue of the "Journal of Medicinal Food" found that D-fraction, a polysaccharide extract of maitake, activated several types of immune cells and molecules, including T-helper cells, macrophages, and interleukins. Researchers concluded that maitake may offer immune benefits that help protect against infection.*

Maitake - Cancer

Maitake D-fraction may inhibit cancer development and spread and also make chemotherapy drugs more effective, according to Dr. Shari Lieberman, author of the book "Maitake Mushroom and D-Fraction." A study published in the June 2011 issue of the "Journal of Medicinal Food" found that maitake D-fraction promotes apoptosis -- programmed cell death -- in breast cancer cells. Maitake extract interfered with energy production in cancer cells, a discovery which, researchers note, will help scientists target potential cancer prevention and treatment approaches.*


Native to North America, China, and Japan, the reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) has a purple-brown color with a long stalk and distinctive shiny cap shaped like a fan. Prized for its purported health benefits rather than its strong flavor, it grows on plum and oak trees. The reishi mushroom has traditionally been used for enhancing the immune system and addressing hypertension, hyperlipidemia, cardiovascular disease, and asthma and bronchial diseases.*

Reishi occurs in six different colors, but the red variety is most commonly used and commercially cultivated in East Asia and North America. In vivo and in vitro studies have identified the active components of reishi mushrooms are primarily polysaccharides, including beta-glucans and triterpenes, and seem to have a variety of pharmacological effects, including antioxidant, antitumor, immune-modulating, cardiovascular, antiviral, and antibacterial.*

Here is a list of the benefits that reishi mushrooms have as a daily dietary supplement or in helping to treat certain medical conditions:

  • Reishi - These mushrooms are very strong antioxidants. Antioxidants protect the body from the negative effects of free radicals that are formed inside the body by daily exposure to the sun, chemicals, and pollutants. Reishi’s are proven to boost the immune system, especially when taken with other antioxidant supplements.*
  • Reishi - It is believed that reishi mushrooms can suppress the growth of tumors in people with cancer. It can reinforce the membranes in cancerous cells to keep the tumor from spreading. For this reason, they are often used in efforts to prevent cancers.*
  • Reishi’s - are also beneficial for people suffering from asthma and other respiratory conditions because it seems to have a healing effect on the lungs. They are good for building respiratory strength and curbing a cough.*
  • Reishi mushrooms have anti-inflammatory properties and are therefore used sometimes for patients who have Alzheimer’s and heart disease. This is based on the idea that inflammation plays a part in each of these conditions. The pain that accompanies other inflammatory conditions like neuralgia and arthritis may also be lessened by reishi mushroom supplements.*
  • Reishi - As far as benefits for the heart, reishi mushrooms can improve the flow of blood to the heart and reduce the amount of oxygen the heart consumes. It can help to lower cholesterol and some of the ingredients may help combat high blood pressure.*


  • FTIR (Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy) – helps identify chemicals or compounds.
  • GC (gas chromatography) – measures chemical spectrum and potency, and is often used for testing essential oils.
  • HP-TLC (high-performance thin-layer chromatography) – identifies the genus and species of a plant.
  • HPLC (High-Pressure Liquid Chromatography) – isolates chemical markers to measure the potency of a plant compound, vitamin, or mineral.
  • ICP-MS (inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry) – quantifies the amount of heavy metal in a raw material or product.
  • Microscopy – helps identify the genus and species of whole botanicals by looking at cell structure.
  • Macroscopy –identifies the genus and species of a whole plant.
  • Microbiological testing – shows the count of aerobic bacteria, yeast, mold, e-coli, staph, and salmonella in raw and finished goods.
  • Organoleptic – uses taste, color, and smell as quality markers in raw materials and finished goods.
  • Titration – measures vitamin or mineral potency.
