HOW DOES IT WORK?
Mushrooms have been used in medicine for thousands of years to aid in treating all kinds of health issues and their mechanisms of action are well documented within the medical literature.
Mushrooms work in many different ways to strengthen your immune system. For example, certain carbohydrates in mushroom cell walls, such as beta-glucans, activate and fuel immune cells and stimulate them to consume viruses and bacteria.
Mushrooms also provide ganoderic acids which possess biological activities that are liver protective, some antitumor effects and mild 5-alpha reductase enzyme inhibition.
There’s also some evidence that certain medicinal mushrooms can regulate and “train” your immune system. Primarily, they prime immune cells to react appropriately to pathogens and toxins while supporting healthy cells and tissues at the same time. This action is vital because a healthy immune system needs to be precisely tuned to provide the necessary response to fight harmful invaders. Mushrooms help to promote an optimal and balanced immune response.
WHY DO I NEED IT?
The BODYGUARD is needed for those who desire a strong immune system for optimal wellness. Scientific research confirms the immune-boosting benefits of the immune-enhancing herbs within the formula together with the fungi, especially the Asian mushrooms, including maitake, cordyceps, reishi, and shiitake (all present in the BODYGUARD).
