Mycoceutics Ten Mushroom Formula -
Ten Mushroom Formula by Douglas Laboratories offers an array of beta-glucans and other active constituents derived from ten of the most healthful species of mushrooms. Mycoceutics is also fortified with an additional 30 mg of beta-1,3-glucan derived from purified yeast.
Mycoceutics® capsules, provided by Douglas
Laboratories®, contain an array of beta-glucans and
other active constituents derived from ten of the most
healthful species of mushrooms. Mycoceutics is also
fortified with an additional 30 mg of beta-1,3-glucan
derived from purified yeast.
Mushrooms used in Mycoceutics are grown under
carefully monitored conditions to ensure that they
never come in contact with heavy metals, pollutants,
and contaminants. These mushrooms are specially
cultivated to maximize polysaccharide content. As
the mushrooms in Mycoceutics are cultivated and not
wild-grown, no sensitive ecological areas are
damaged to collect the mushrooms.
Mushrooms have been an integral component of folk
medicine world wide for many centuries. Scientists
are actively investigating the many healthful
components of mushrooms, yet, several active
constituents have already been identified.
Polysaccharides, dietary fiber, lectins, and terpenoids
have all been identified as beneficial components of
certain mushroom species.
Polysaccharides demonstrate potent immunomodulating
activity in in vitro, animal, and clinical studies. Betaglucans
are important polysaccharides found in
mushrooms that enhance the body's natural immune
activity. Beta-1,3-glucans, as well as beta-1,4-glucans
and beta-1,6-glucans activate macrophage function
and release of nitric oxide and tumor necrosis factoralpha.
Macrophages are one of the two primary phagocytic
cells of the immune system. They are able to engulf
and destroy foreign antigens. Macrophages also help
govern the immune system, helping to initiate and
direct specific immune responses.
In stimulating macrophage activity, beta-glucans
support the immune system by activating natural
immune responses, rather than directly affecting
foreign cells or entities.
No adverse effects have been reported.
Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct light.
Keep out of reach of children.
