Siberian Mushroom Extract

The Science > Key Ingredients

For thousands of years, Siberian mushrooms were used for their medicinal and age-combating properties in China, Japan, Russia, Manchuria, and Asia Minor. In Asian culture it is sometimes referred to as the "Mushroom of Immortality."

Siberian mushroom contains numerous phytonutrient compounds, amino acids, trace minerals, ergo sterol (a Vitamin D2 precursor), immune activating compounds, a high concentration of melanin, and many forms of beta glucans. Beta glucans (complex carbohydrates), or polysaccharides-also found in algae, yeast, and oats-are powerful immune boosters that work by stimulating the body's ability to establish cellular defenses.

Siberian mushroom extract has extremely high antioxidant values and has been used successfully in the treatment of skin disorders such as eczema, dermatitis, rosacea, and psoriasis.
