Wild-Crafted Reishi Mushroom Powdered Extract
+ THE SUPERIOR PROTECTOR +
The much respectedMemorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centerstates the following regarding Reishi's 'Mechanism of Action' with regard to cancer:
Beta glucans, polysaccharides present in reishi, have demonstrated antitumor and immunostimulating activities (18) (40). Its triterpene compounds may inhibit tumor invasion by reducing matrix metalloproteinase expression (16), and tumor metastases by limiting attachment to endothelial cells (17). Recent findings indicate that reishi induces natural killer (NK) cell cytotoxicity against various cancer cell lines via activation of the natural cytotoxic receptors (NKG2D/NCR) and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK)-signaling pathways, which result in exocytosis of perforin and granulysin (31). Reishi polysaccharides were also shown to increase expression of the major histocompatibility (MHC) class I and costimulatory molecules on melanoma cells, resulting in enhanced antitumor cytotoxicity (32). In human ovarian cancer cells, reishi inhibits proliferation by suppressing vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression and upregulating connexin 43 expression (39).
In other studies reishi increased plasma antioxidant capacity (6) (7) and enhanced immune response in advance-stage cancer patients (8). Its extracts also inhibited 5-alpha reductase, an important enzyme that converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone and is upregulated in benign prostatic hyperplasia (9).
Reishi is also particularly revered for its ability to relieve anxiety and stress. For thousands of years reishi has been used by humans in conjunction with meditation and other spiritual practices to aid the process of toning and strengthening the spirit.
Our wildcrafted reishi is harvested from its natural home in China’s Dabie mountains. Wild herbs embody the spirit of their homeland, and imbue those ingesting the herb with that same spirit.

Your herbs are packed in Miron violet glass to protect them from damaging UV rays, and include a silica-based desiccant to absorb moisture (the enemy of your herbs!). Keep your herbs dry and tightly sealed and they’ll thank you! The herbs are packed by weight not volume and some settling may occur. Please reuse your Miron jars!!
THIS IS A QUALITY HEALTH SUPPLEMENT BUT DOES NOT REPLACE THE VALUE OF GOOD HOLISTIC VETERINARY ADVICE.
