How Medicinal Mushrooms Can Work for You

Red Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) – (sold separately and as part of Purica® Complete 360 and Immune7)
Calming and de-stressing, Red Reishi also supports the process of falling, and stay­ing, asleep. Known in traditional Chinese medicine as the mushroom of immortality, it increases longevity in mice and may possibly do the same for humans. This mushroom also supports the immune system.

Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) – (sold separately and as part of Purica® Complete 360)
This tree mushroom is known for its ability to enhance memory and cogni­tive ability, as well as to calm the nervous system and reduce anxiety. These effects are likely due to the mushroom’s ability to stimulate the synthesis of nerve growth factor (NGF), a small protein crucial to the growth, maintenance and survival of nerve cells within the brain.

Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) – (sold separately and as part of Purica® Complete 360)
This tree mushroom, which resembles dark wood, gained fame in the ‘80s as the curative mushroom in Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s semi-auto­biographical novel, Cancer Ward. The fungal growth, or conk, is a rich source of antioxidants and beta-glucans, which both protect the body’s tissues, and stimulate the immune system. To survive in the harsh cli­mates in which it thrives, Chaga harnesses and concentrates protective plant chemicals from the host tree. When we consume Chaga, these benefits are conferred to us.

Cordyceps (Ophiocordyceps sinensis) – (sold separately and as part of Purica® Complete 360 and Immune7)
Cordyceps is an exceptionally beneficial mushroom that helps the body increase its output of energy by enhancing oxygen uptake by the cells. It also helps athletes recuperate faster and improves a flagging libido. In short, it can make you feel young and vital. Like all medicinal mushrooms, Cordyceps also boosts the immune system.

Coriolus (Coriolus versicolor) – (sold separately and as part of Purica® Complete 360 and Immune7)
Often referred to as turkey tail mushroom, Coriolus is widely recognized for its powerful and consis­tent ability to affect the human immune response. Two substances, polysaccharide peptide (PSP) and polysaccharide krestin (PSK) have been shown to profoundly affect immunity. Over 600 studies have been carried out on PSP, and close to 25 clinical tri­als. In one studyi, researchers at the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York found Coriolus superior to all other immune enhancing natural substances tested.

Sun mushroom (Agaricus blazei) – (sold as part of Purica® Complete 360 and Immune7)
Agaricus is widely recognized for its ability to galvanize the immune response, reduce both physical and mental stress, and help the body to detoxify. It also possesses powerful anti-inflammatory action.

Maitake (Grifola frondosa) – (sold as part of Purica® Complete 360 and Immune7)
A powerful antioxidant, Maitake—or “hen-of-the-woods” possesses significant anti-viral action and contributes significantly to the immune-enhancing properties of Complete 360. The mushroom also encourages a healthy lipid profile. A recently identified Maitake compound, known as SX fraction, has been shown to reduce blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels.

Shiitake (Lentinula edodes) – (sold as part of Purica® Complete 360 and Immune7)
This immunomodulating mushroom restores an imbalanced immune system to optimal health, enabling it to better protect the body. Shiitake contains lentinan, which activates the im­mune system’s natural killer (NK) cells that halt the replication of cells with mutated DNA. Lentinan also reduces hormone-like prostaglandins that create inflammation
