What are Beta Glucans?

If you're looking for a natural way to boost your immune system and protect your health, look no further than beta-glucans, complex sugars found in the cell walls of mushrooms. Reishi, turkey tail, and lions mane mushrooms are some of the most popular sources of beta-glucans, and have been used for centuries to support a healthy life.

These special compounds are very important for our bodies but are not easily accessed in their natural state. Complex carbohydrates called chitin, which makes up the mushroom cell walls, makes it very difficult for our bodies to break down  and access the nutrients inside. To help make these compounds bioavailable,  techniques such as boiling the mushroom and it's substrate are used, before freeze drying and powdering. 

Research has shown that bioavailable beta-glucans have a powerful effect on the immune system. Reishi Mushroom - Beta Glucans 30g/100g, Turkey Tail Mushroom - Beta Glucans 21g/100g & Lions Mane Mushroom - Beta Glucans 17g/100g are some of the most potent organic, natural sources of beta-glucans on the market. These mushrooms are also packed with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory compounds, and other beneficial nutrients, making them an excellent support act for a healthy immune system.

One of the best ways to incorporate beta-glucans into your diet is through medicinal mushrooms. Reishi, turkey tail, and lions mane mushrooms are available as whole-food powders and when choosing your supplier it is recommended to look for one that not only contains a high percentage of beta-glucans but is also sustainably sourced, organic and non-GMO.
