Agaricus is a medicinal mushroom that was first discovered in Brazil, where the native cultures prepared it as a tea for medicinal purposes but also ate it as a food. They have so much respect for this mushroom that they call it “The Mushroom of the Gods”. This mushroom contains immune supporting beta-glucan polysaccharides which have been shown to have antiviral, anti-diabetic, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Beta glucans stimulate the activity of natural “killer cells” which are a vital part of the immune system. These polysaccharides are believed to be among the most potent polysaccharides for immune health yet discovered, given their ability to modulate the immune response and promote cellular health.

Cordyceps mushrooms have been a staple in holistic medicine for centuries and have long been revered for their potent anti-aging, health-promoting properties. Considered an energizing adaptogen, cordyceps are often used to help fight fatigue, treat muscle aches and prevent weakness. Several studies suggest that cordyceps can boost athletic performance — improving physical abilities, endurance and stamina — partially because they boost the body’s supply of ATP, one of the primary sources of energy during exercise. This ATP boost also assists the body with the much needed energy for combating diseases.
