ShroomTECH Immune Ingredients
Onnit’s ShroomTech Immune uses a complex blend of all-natural, food-based ingredients to deliver a healthy and organic supplement, which can be used at higher dosages than many of its competitors. It contains the following ingredients :
Chaga Mushrooms – ShroomTech Immune contains chaga mushrooms, a nutrient dense superfood that have been shown to contain the following nutrients - B-complex vitamins, vitamin D, potassium, rubidium, caesium, amino acids, fibre, copper, selenium, zinc, iron, manganese, magnesium and calcium (Villines, 2017). The chaga mushrooms high nutritional content means that they have the potential to bestow the following benefits – slowing the ageing process, by helping to limit the oxidative stress on the body; lowering cholesterol, due to the many antioxidants that they contain; lowering the chance of cancer, by helping to police out some of the free radicals that may cause it; lowering blood pressure; helping to lower inflammation by regulating cytokine production and helping to lower blood sugar (Villines, 2017). Chaga mushrooms have also been demonstrated to help immune system function, with research suggesting that the help in cytokine production (the immune system’s chemical messengers), meaning they have the potential to enhance immune system function (Villines, 2017). Onnit’s ShroomTech Immune is packed with these miraculous mushrooms, ensuring that the individual supplement and Onnit’s Total Human complete supplement packs, gives your immune system the nutrient support that it needs.
TURMERIC (95% CURCUMINOIDS) – Turmeric has been considered a medicinal spice in India for millennia and science now appears to have validated this belief. Curcumin (the active ingredient of turmeric) has been shown to deliver a variety of health benefits, including – reducing oxidative stress, reducing inflammation, lowering the risk of heart disease and enhancing brain function (Nagpal, 2018). However, it is also difficult for the body to absorb, and standard turmeric is only around 3% curcumin (Nagpal, 2018). Fortunately, Onnit’s ShroomTech Immune enhances this to a remarkable 95% dramatically increasing the potential for your body to absorb all the benefits that turmeric can bring.
GINGER ROOT – Ginger root has been used in oriental medicine for more than 5000 years – to help with things like digestion, to prevent nausea and as an anti-inflammatory agent. Science has since shown that ginger root can also help with things like blood pressure and cardiovascular health. It also contains a variety of different nutrients, including - vitamin B6, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, folate and riboflavin (Ware, 2017). ShroomTech Immune contains a healthy dose of ginger root, ensuring that your body gets all the potential benefits of this amazing natural plant.
OREGANO LEAF – A herb that is used to flavour food across the globe, it has a long history of therapeutic use. It is most beneficial due to the large amount of antioxidative nutrients it contains, helping the body to police out free radicals and lessen the damage done by oxidative stress (V, November 1996). It also has the potential to help find harmful bacteria due to some of the compounds that it contains, other suspected but unproven properties, include – it being a potential help in the battle against cancer and reducing inflammation. Onnit’s ShroomTech Immune contains oregano leaf – allowing you to benefit from its incredible antioxidative properties.
ASTRAGALUS ROOT – A vital part of ancient Chinese medicine, there are no complete studies on Astragalus root. However, it is believed to boost the immune system, help lower blood sugar and help cardiovascular function. A 2012 study found that patients with kidney failure (whose immune systems are traditionally weakened) gained some benefit from taking astragalus – since then scientists around the world have been seeking to validate those results and understand the potential health benefits that astragalus brings. ShroomTech Immune contains astragalus root, offering takers of the supplement the chance to gain the potential immune and heart benefits.
LEMON PEEL – Often considered a waste product, lemon peel actually has an array of health benefits. It along with other citrus fruits contains a large number of antioxidants, which enable the body to police out free radicals and prevent the damage that oxidative stress can cause our cells. It is also known to contain compounds that have the potential to stimulate immune function and has been shown to benefit oral health. ShroomTech Immune contains lemon peel, ensuring that your body can gain all the potential benefits that it bestows.
Why mushrooms have the potential to help immune system function
Mushrooms combine high nutritional content, with a number of compounds that have the potential to stimulate the growth of vital immune cells. Specifically, they contain Beta-glucans that activate natural immune killer cells. It is a bit like a vaccination – mushrooms are fungi, meaning that the body wants to remove some of the things that they contain, stimulating an immune system response, once the cells have been created, they do not disappear, thus meaning that your body has more immune cells to remove more dangerous things from the body (M. A. A. Al-Fatimi, 2006 Mar; ). This immune system response initiates a cascade of events that has the potential to increase the production of innate and adaptive immune cells (Chen J1, 2007). By stimulating the body’s natural defence system – mushrooms have the potential to help develop the immune system and allow your body to thrive. ShroomTech Immune is a clinically tested, all-natural supplement that seeks to utilise the potential of mushrooms to do just this – helping develop grow and improve your body’s natural defences.
How to use ShroomTech Immune
ShroomTech Immune can be taken as a standalone supplement, either once or twice a day, however, you will gain most benefit if you use it as part of Onnit’s Total Human complete supplement packs, where it appears in both the day and night packs. If you are looking for an immune system boost then ShroomTech Immune has the potential to radically improve your body’s natural defences.
