SHROOM TECH IMMUNE
Shroom TECH Immune is a revolutionary formula designed to directly influence the body's ability to maintain a healthy immune system. At the heart of the formula is a combination of some of the most powerful mushrooms in the world, rich with bio-active fungal polysaccharides and beta glucans believed to help the body by supporting a healthy immune system.*
The New Food-Based Shroom Tech Immune
At the core of the New Shroom TECH Immune is the same proprietary micronized mushroom blend, Immune Assist. This combination of cordyceps, reishi, maitake, and more has been micronized to optimize absorption and contains powerful beta glucans that help stimulate a positive immune response from the body.* Rounding out the mycological profile, we have included Chaga mushroom, one of the most well respected traditional immune stimulating mushrooms in the world, and a personal favorite of Joe Rogan.*
What is different about the new Shroom TECH Immune, is a decision to move entirely to food based supplements to round out the formula. The combination of Turmeric with 95% curcuminoids, Astragalus, Lemon Peel, Oregano Leaf, and Ginger create a powerful well rounded supplement to help provide the body with key nutrients to support a healthy immune system.*
How Mushrooms Can Help The Immune System
Mushrooms are traditionally prized for both the nutritional value and composition of biologically active compounds believed to support the immune system. Beta-glucans are high molecular weight polysaccharides. The structural configuration, glucoside linkages, and molecular mass of these mushroom specific compounds are recognized as foreign bodies by immune cell receptors, initiating a cascade of events that elevates the production of both innate and adaptive immune cells. Beta-glucans have been suggested to bind to the Decin-1: promoting phagocytosis and further supporting of immune response pathways.* Immune Assist contains over 200 highly-purified, high molecular weight polysaccarides derived from 100% USDA Certified Organic, Certified Kosher, non-GMO mushroom species that include: Agaricus blazei, Cordyceps sinensis, Grifola frondosa (Maitake), Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi), Coriolus (Trametes) versicolor, and Lentinula edodes. Elevation of the body’s natural form of defense with a blend of these highly functional foods can assist the body by supporting vitality and health.* For more information on Immune Assist.
Shroom TECH Immune
Clinically-Tested Proprietary Mushroom Blend
The core strength of the Shroom TECH Immune formula resides in the power of mushrooms and the Immune Assist Micron blend licensed from Aloha Medicinals. Rounding out the formula are the antioxidants turmeric, orgeno, lemon peel, ginger root, and the adaptogenic Chinese herb, astragalus.*
Beta-Glucans and the Immune System
Mushrooms are traditionally prized for both the nutritional value and composition of biologically active compounds believed to stimulate the immune the system. Beta-glucans are high molecular weight polysaccharides that activate natural killer cells, T-cells, B-cells, neutrophils, and cell-mediated immune responses. The structural configuration, glucoside linkages, and molecular mass of these mushroom specific compounds are recognized as foreign bodies by immune cell receptors, initiating a cascade of events that elevates the production of both innate and adaptive immune cells. Immune Assist contains over 200 highly-purified, high molecular weight polysaccarides derived from 100% USDA Certified Organic, Certified Kosher, non-GMO mushroom species that include: Agaricus blazei, Cordyceps sinensis, Grifola frondosa (Maitake), Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi), Coriolus (Trametes) versicolor, and Lentinula edodes. Elevation of the body’s natural form of defense with a blend of these supplements can assist the body with supporting vitality and health.*
Chaga mushrooms are cultivated in cold climates and have a history of use that dates back to the 16th century. The slow growing fruit bodies from chaga mushrooms reside on bark of birch trees and have a charcoal appearance due to the high content of melanin. Chaga mushrooms contain a high density of antioxidants, phytosterols, and polysaccharides that may contribute to supporting immune function. It is believed the body is helped by the immunostimulatory benefits of Chaga mushrooms due to low molecular weight soluble compounds, as well as the heavier polysaccharides.*
Polysaccharide extracts from the root of astragalus have been used as a traditional Chinese health herb to help the body with pharmacological and immunomodulatory optimization. Administration of astragalus polysaccharides may help the body to accelerate the humoral and cellular immune responses, accelerating the production of antibodies and T-cell proliferation. In addition, astragalus has also been shown to help the body provide an additional benefit to athletes. Eight weeks of astragalus supplementation helped reduce fatigue and increase oxygen uptake in trained athletes. Both the immuno-proliferative properties and performance enhancing effects of astragalus support its role as a useful supplement to help the body with optimum cardiovascular and immune function.*
Antioxidants and Immune Function
Turmeric has a long history of use in Ayurvedic medicine and is suggested to have a number of benefits. Curcumin is the primary constituent that gives turmeric both its vibrant yellow color as well as its helpful properties for supporting the body’s immune system.* It is believed that curcumin functions by inhibiting cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) to help the body support a healthy inflammation response. Ginger Root extract has also been suggested to support a healthy inflammation response by the same mechanism.* Increasing intake of antioxidants, such as lemon peel, can create optimal conditions and improve the ability of cordyceps sinensis mushroom (in Immune Assist Micron) to scavenge free radicals. The culmination of nutrition research supports this combination of natural antioxidants with mushroom beta-glucans to help support the immune system.*
Shroom TECH Immune compiles a powerful profile of both traditional and cutting edge immune boosting compounds, some of which are completely unique to fungal species. Immune Assist contains high molecular weight polysaccharides that have immunostimulatory properties, that may help support the immune system.* The addition of Chaga mushrooms and the astragalus herb offer a long history of use supported by research. Combining an antioxidant blend of oregano, turmeric, ginger root, and lemon peel may help the body to support a healthy inflammation response synergistically with mushroom extracts.* This unique composition of supplements in Shroom TECH Immune is designed to be highly beneficial for those who aim to maintain optimum immune function.*

Chaga mushroom, found on Birch and other trees in cold climates, has been used as a supplement in Russia and other North European countries for generations. Chaga draws nutrients from the tree on which it grows and extracts are typically derived from the inner layers of the bark. The active constituents are thought to be a combination of triterpenes, such as betulinic acid, sterols, and polysaccharides.
Turmeric (95% Curcuminoids)
This super spice has documented use back to 1900 BC for specific internal and external uses. Curcumin, the active polyphenol found in the rhizome of the turmeric plant possesses the ability to help the body support healthy immune and inflammation response.* It’s also referred to as the “spice of Life”.
Indians and Chinese have used ginger as a root as a supplement for 5000 years. It was so valuable in the 13th and 14th centuries that a pound of ginger was equivalent to the cost of a sheep. Ginger has also been used for centuries as a mild digestive aid.*
Oregano is an herb touted for both its culinary and supplement uses. It represented a symbol of happiness for the Ancient Greeks and Romans. Consuming oregano can provide more antioxidants than many food groups including fruits, berries, cereals and vegetables. Oregano may be useful in helping to support the immune system.*
Historically, astragalus root was used by the Chinese for its immuno-stimulating properties. For more on Astragalus click the Research tab.
You’ve probably been throwing away the lemon peel for years. It turns out that citrus fruit peels possess a wide array of antioxidants. Lemon peels contain compounds that can help the body support healthy immune function. Helping the body with sound oral health was also a secondary benefit of lemon peel. In the extract form, a tertiary benefit on assisting the body with mild stress needs further exploration.
Products including Alpha BRAIN, New MOOD, Shroom TECH Sport, and Shroom TECH Immune have a shelf life of two years from the manufacturer date found on the bottle.
