Support Your Immune System and Gut Health with Mushrooms*
In the coming weeks, many of us will be spending a lot of time inside, surrounded by family and friends, gathering around a warm fire or at the dinner table. We will be sharing company, food, and hopefully some good laughs. Support yourself and those you love with mushrooms that promote your body’s immunity this winter!*
Adaptogenic and Prebiotic Mushrooms for Immune Support*
Mushrooms are wonderful adaptogens, which help to support homeostasis in the body and aid in adapting to stress by supporting the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems.* As immuno-modulators, constituents of mushrooms (such as polysaccharides) can also support immune responses.*
Mushrooms are natural prebiotics, which feed and promote the activity of the good flora in your gut.* This means mushrooms can support healthy digestion.* We often eat rich foods in winter, feeling nourished (if not perhaps a little full) by special family recipes. The immune system and gut mutually regulate each other, and mushrooms also support them both.* Since the majority of our immune system lives in the gut microbiome, digestive health is directly related to immune regulation.* Mushrooms for immune support are the perfect gift this holiday season!* (We think they’re a good gift for someone who’s hard to shop for!)
