All hail the almighty mushroom!

Mushrooms have been used for centuries to support health & vitality.Not only do they taste delicious, are a rich source of fibre, B vits & selenium

But they also contain immunomodulatory substances called beta-glucans. These are sugars found in their cell wall & are being increasingly research due to their ability to stimulate the innate immune system.

That is the part of your immune system that helps us fight off disease, bacteria & viruses - specifically the T-1cytokines

Some mushrooms have more potent medicinal properties but all have the capacity to help your immune system stay in good working order - even standard white button schrooms!

Give them a try!

If anyone is interested in reading some of the studies, just ask :)
