Putting Our Defenses into Action
Reishi Defense is a simple yet effective formula for enhanced immune support. Offering protection and helping to combat bacteria and virus invaders. Remember, your best defense is a good offense.
Reishi has long been thought to strengthen immune function, reduce stress that can weaken our defenses, and support liver function. Vitamins C and D protect and help activate our immune cells into action while bioflavonoids battle inflammation, allergies, viruses, and free radicals. This product is especially beneficial during cold and flu season.
DAILY IMMUNE SUPPORT
Being optimally healthy does not mean that you don’t get sick when exposed to a virus; it’s in how well you deal with it that reveals your health. Your body certainly will contract a virus if it doesn’t recognize it (if you’ve never had it before) and has to build immunity to it. Over 90% of the population gets sick with viruses every year.
Reduce your risks and recover faster with nutrients that strengthen your immune system to combat invading viruses and harmful bacteria.
WHY A MUSHROOM?
Fungi are vital to the health of a forest where they naturally grow, absorbing chemical toxins and waste from the environment, and helping it rebuild and regenerate. Their ability to restore balance within nature is exactly what they may accomplish within your body’s internal environment.
Medicinal mushrooms like the revered Red Reishi support your immune system by making sure that your white blood cells may behave effectively to stop invading viruses and bacteria, and may stop diseased cells from replicating. Red Reishi Mushroom has been used for thousands of years in China. It affects over 300 body processes, particularly in the liver where detoxification takes place. In Traditional Chinese medicine, Reishi ranks highest among all 365 herbs listed in its oldest pharmacopeia, considered even more valuable than ginseng.
Modern clinical research now validates that Red Reishi Mushroom may help to:
• Strengthen the immune system
• Calm anxiety and help decrease negative effects of stress (which also helps improve immune function)
• Reduce insomnia
• Promote a healthy brain, and increase memory and concentration
• Stimulate the liver to help the body detoxify
• Support heart and vascular system health
• Increase energy
• Offer anti-aging benefits with antioxidants that fight free radicals
• Reduce muscle tension and pain
• Offer nutrients including protein, fibre, vitamin B and calcium
In addition to Reishi mushroom, we added Vitamin C because it has been documented through hundreds of research studies to support immune systems and speed recovery from many viruses. For those who are under significant physical stress, such as athletes, or emotional stress, supplementing with Vitamin C could dramatically reduce the risk of severe symptoms.
We also added 1,000 IUs of Vitamin D3 for a daily top-up due to its overwhelming evidence of immune support which may help prevent viruses and diseases including cancer, and due to our general deficiency in North America.
The formula also condenses powerful phytonutrients called Bioflavonoids: Hesperidin, Rutin and Quercitin (from lemons) – offer antioxidant protection for heart and circulatory health, may strengthen the immune system, protect the liver, reduce inflammation, enhance the power of Vitamin C, protect blood vessels from ruptures, and reduce oxidative damage.
