We all wish we had a magic pill that would guarantee us 100% protection against bacteria and viruses, but we don't - and neither does anyone else.
However we all have something just as remarkable. It's our innate immune system. Our immune system battles to protect the body 24/7 against a variety of viruses and bacteria.
You can negatively influence this battle by doing things that weaken and expose your immune system to environmental contaminants, or you can positively influence this battle and keep your immune system strong and healthy.

Research has shown that mushroom extracts are beneficial to support a healthy immune system. The first seven are in our new Superfoods Immune Energizer™.
Agaricus blazeicomesfrom the Brazilian rain forest. It is rich in the immunomodulating polysaccharides,β-glucans, and has been shown to have antitumor, anti-infection, and antiallergic/asthmatic properties in mouse models, in addition to anti-inflammatory effects in inflammatory bowel disease patients. These effects are mediated through the mushroom's stimulation of innate immune cells, such as monocytes, NK cells, and dendritic cells, and the amelioration of a skewed Th1/Th2 balance and inflammation.
Bionectria ochroleuca from Cordyceps metabolites show a broad spectrum of antibacterial, antifungal and anti-dermatophytic activity.
Turkey Tail (coriolus versicolor) contains a wide variety of phenol and flavonoid antioxidants which help promote immune system health by reducing inflammation and stimulating the release of protective compounds - PSK and PSP, powerful polysaccharopeptides. Turkey tail may positively impact gut bacterial balance by enhancing the growth of beneficial bacteria while suppressing harmful species.
Reishi (ganodema lucidumn) can enhance immune function through its effects on white blood cells, which help fight infection and cancer. This may occur primarily in those who are ill, as mixed results have been seen in those who are healthy. Some preliminary studies have shown that Reishi can decrease anxiety and depression as well as improve quality of life in those with certain medical conditions.
Maitake or Hen-of-the-Woods (grifola frondosa) is known for its anti-cancer, anti-viral and immune-enhancing properties in traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine.
Lion's Mane (hericium erinaceus) Research suggests Lion's Mane may offer a range of health benefits, including reduced inflammation and improved cognitive and heart health.
Shiitake (lentinula edodes) consumption improves cell effector function and gut immunity, as well as a reduction of inflammation.
AHCC (Activate Hexose Corrolated Compound) from Shiitake and other mushroom mycelia increases Natural Killer (NK) cell activity. (NOT in Superfoods Immune Energizer™) .
VEGETABLES AND FRUITS PROVIDE POLYPHENOLS AND ANTIOXIDANTS
A varied and balanced diet supports a healthy immune system. Often lacking are fruits, vegetables and the polyphenols and antioxidants they contain. Our newest immune supplement recommendation is Superfoods Immune Energizer™. It contains a wide array of phytonutrients (plant based nutrients) from green vegetables, fruits, and mushrooms. Supplementing with these food concentrates will help balance a standard American diet. .
STRESS WEAKENS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
How often do you hear "I feel so much stress. What can make me less susceptible to the flu and viruses?" Here are a few answers for the typical patient.
