✔️MAXIMUM HEALTH BENEFITS. All natural Mushroom Complex 4 is a broad full-spectrum, high potency, complete mushroom formula. Contains an equal mix of four different mushrooms, Shiitake, Reishi, Lions mane and Maitake. Only the most complex part of the mushroom is used – the fruit body – for maximum benefits.
✔️DUAL EXTRACTED, 3RD PARTY TESTED. Alcohol and hot water extraction used to draw out water-soluble and the non-water-soluble bio actives. Beta glucan content is 30% of total polysaccharides, 3rd party tested.
✔️MAXIMUM STRENGTH. 50:1 extract ratio giving the strongest, most powerful Beta 1,3/1,6 D Glucan mixed mushroom formula available on the market today.
✔️HIGH QUALITY & VALUE. Manufactured in the UK to GMP standard with only the finest quality raw materials. Due to our low operating costs, we are able to offer our customers great prices.
✔️100% VEGAN WITH NO FILLERS, BINDERS OR ADDITIVES. We believe in clean nutrition which is why you won’t find any nasty stuff in our products, unlike some of our competitors.
✔️AVAILABLE AS POWDER. Simply search “Mushroom Complex 4 powder”.
How are they grown?
|Grow traditionally and naturally (not grown in a lab on substrates) on the following; Lion’s mane = Hardwood sticks. Maitake = Hardwood sticks. Reshi = Duanwood logs. Shiitake = Hardwood sticks.|
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.
