For a healthy immune system
Agaricus Mushroom helps your immune system to be more intelligent and effective. Ideally you want your immune system to be powerful but controlled, so just blindly boosting your immune system, as many Western herbs do, isn’t always helpful.
Agaricus is a bi-directional immune modulator and educator, which means it works intelligently. If your immune system is over-stimulated (as happens in auto-immune disorders for example) the immune system attacks everything in sight including the body’s own tissues, using up massive energy resources in the process. In this case, agaricus will calm it down and retrain it so that the response to invaders becomes more selective and efficient.
On the other hand, if your immune system is low, agaricus will give it the support it needs to raise its game and start to deal with genuine threats appropriately.
Agaricus tastes good and is high in polysaccharides, which are the healthy essential sugars that can be hard to get in conventional foods.
It is traditionally known as ‘God’s mushroom’ because of its near-miraculous benefits for a wide range of disorders, not just those relating to the immune system. It is a tonic herb from Brazil, a medicinal mushroom also known as a tree mushroom or a noble mushroom. Many of the other noble mushrooms (including chaga, reishi, maitake and cordyceps) are available at Lion Heart Herbs.
