Mushrooms: Nature’s Power Sip.
Celebrate the potent power of functional mushrooms, a natural wonder, in every sip of NewGreens green drink.
Have you ever walked into a room and forgotten why you went in there? Or have you encountered periods of low energy, exhaustion, and poor immunity? Most of us have experienced moments in life at some point and it can be frustrating to find a supplement to help break through. There is, however, a group of food organisms that hold various nutraceutical properties, including beta-glucans to help boost immune responses, supports energy production, works as an adaptogen balancing stress responses, and are potentially brain health superheroes. Medicinal mushrooms have been used for thousands of years by many cultures around the world, and it is only recently that we have begun to genuinely appreciate these amazing creatures. Their incredible abilities are why we added a full therapeutic dose of 500 mg per serving of the top medicinal mushrooms to our new greens formula.
Here is a list of the mushrooms we included and what they are known for:
Organic Lion’s Mane: Hieracium erinaceous, clinically, has been used for thousands of years in Asia and in N. America to support digestion and cognitive enhancement. Studies indicate that this mushroom may stimulate the production of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), which is a specialized protein responsible for the growth of new sensory neurons. It has also been shown to help promote the growth of myelin sheath, which is crucial for healthy nerve transmissions.
Organic Cordyceps: C. sinensis has several important applications, including improving fatigue, adrenal health, respiratory support, kidney health, and cardiovascular benefits. But this list goes on even further, making it a well-studied and widely used mushroom throughout Asia.
Organic Reishi: One of the most revered mushrooms in Asia, Ganoderma lucidum is mostly used for its immune enhancement support. Several studies show anti-tumor activity as well as increased T cell production. Reishi is also known to be a liver protector, have anti-inflammatory properties and help balance blood sugar levels.
Organic Shiitake: Lentinula Edodes is the second most common edible mushroom in the world and has been used for thousands of years by both Chinese and Japanese royalty as the preferred treatment to combat immune disfunctions. Shiitake yields high amounts of polysaccharides known as 1-3 beta-D-glucan, which are powerful immune boosting compounds.
Organic Maitake: Grifola frondose has been used as an immune modulator for thousands of years in Japan. In clinical use, Maitake has considerable amounts of beta-1,3 glucan and beta-1,6 glucan, two polysaccharides used in several studies worldwide and its ability to combat irregular cell division.
