Our capsule shell is made from HPMC (hydroxypropyl methylcellulose). This is made up of the trunks of pine and spruce trees that come from the Southwestern United States. HPMC-capsules are colourless, elastic and dissolve as quickly as gelatine capsules.
Manufactured in the UK to GMP quality assurance with only the finest quality raw materials.
Polysaccharides are the latest testing standardization for medicinal mushrooms.
Polysaccharides are the group of active nutrients that are scientifically proven to give medicinal mushrooms their amazing medicinal properties. Examples of a few of the better known polysaccharides are beta-glucans and alpha-glucans. Many companies still sell mushroom powders in extracts eg: 10:1/5:1, this means very little as many of these extracts may not even include any polysaccharides giving very little to no benefits.
As a food supplement for adults, take 1 to 4 capsules spread out during the day 30 minutes before food, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. Do not exceed the stated recommended daily dose.
We have had positive feedback that taking 4 capsules daily for the first 2 weeks then reducing to 2 capsules daily.
Please note: We revise a products suggested use when new scientific data becomes available and supersedes the current suggested use. This may differ from the actual product packaging until old stocks are updated.
Which is better, Beta-glucan from Mushrooms or Yeast?
Mushroom Beta-glucan is a carbohydrate polymer derived from the cell wall of medicinal mushrooms. Research demonstrates that this unique polymer effectively supports the body’s natural defence system by activating the front line immune cells to support a healthy and robust immune response without over-stimulating it.
Mushroom extracts contain much more bio-active ingredients than just (1>3)(1>6)beta-D-glucans, including other types of bio-active beta-glucans, sterols, triterpenes and trace minerals. Glucans linked to peptides /proteins (proteo-glycans and polysaccharide-peptides) are also present. It is very likely there is a synergy between these bio-actives, increasing the therapeutic potential.
Existing research shows mushroom extracts containing ≥ 20% beta-glucan to be almost as active as yeast-derived beta-glucan supplements with a purity of ≥ 83 – 86 %. In other words, to achieve a similar effect on the immune system you get from taking our high-quality mushroom extract you’ll have to take ± 10 x the amount of yeast beta-glucans.
Mushroom extracts contain mostly soluble beta-glucan, whereas yeast beta-glucan is mostly insoluble. Soluble polysaccharides (such as in mushroom beta-glucans) bind to bile acids in the small intestine, making them less likely to enter the body; this in turn lowers cholesterol levels in the blood. They also reduce the absorption of sugar, reduce sugar response after eating, normalize blood lipid levels and, once fermented in the colon, these soluble glucans produce short-chain fatty acids as by products with wide-ranging physiological activities. Insoluble glucans such as found in yeast have a more limited therapeutic potential.
The conclusion can only be that mushroom extracts are to be preferred over yeast-derived beta-glucan supplements. They achieve a similar immune-modulating effect at a significant lower dosage and on top of that have many other beneficial health effects not found in yeast beta-glucan products.
