Health Benefits

Mushrooms’ immune boosting abilities are highly attributable to the high level of polysaccharides (specifically Beta-glucans, one type of polysaccharide found in abundance in fungi) contained within their cell walls. This class of therapeutically active compounds are most widespread within the mushroom kingdom, and within our bodies they interact with specific fungal-polysaccharide receptors on our immune cells (macrophages, neutrophils, monocytes, and dendritic cells). For intense reading about this exact pathway, Martin Powell’s Medicinal Mushrooms: A Clinical Guide goes into fantastic detail of polysaccharides acting as nutrients to enhance our immune system.
