Mushroom Science Immune Builder Extract

Immune Builder Extract (formerly known as 5 Mushroom Formula) is your best choice for preventative immune support or short term use: the cold and flu season or a healthy vacation. Containing extracts from Maitake Gold, Coriolus, Reishi, Shiitake and Agaricus blazei mushrooms, this formula is the only mushroom supplement combining all the beta glucan configurations from the different mushrooms at the effective potencies identified in the research. Beta 1-3, 1-4 and 1-6 glucan each interact in a different way with the immune system; together they provide full spectrum immune support.

This formula consists of 100% pure research validated hot water extracts; potency is not compromised by adding ground up mushrooms or unextracted mycelium biomass.

Hot Water Extracted: Dr. Mark Stengler N.D., in his recent book, The Health Benefits of Medicinal Mushrooms, made the observation that all of the independent scientific studies on medicinal mushrooms are based on the use of hot water extracts. All of the references from Traditional Chinese Medicine also recommend hot water extraction when preparing medicinal mushrooms. There are two main factors involved:

Bioavailability - The immune-supporting polysaccharides common to all medicinal mushrooms and mushroom mycelium are found inside of the cell walls. However, the cell walls are made from an indigestible fiber called "chitin", the same material a lobster shell is made of. Hot water extraction is the only clinically validated method for breaking these polysaccharides out of the indigestible cell walls. Even soft mushrooms like shiitake are prepared as a hot water extract or a tea when used medicinally.

Concentration - The immune supporting polysaccharides found in the cell walls of mushrooms and mushroom mycelium comprise only 0.5-2% of the total mass by dry weight (depending on the mushroom), not enough to have effect even if they were bioavailable. Most hot water mushroom/mycelium extracts are at least a 20:1 concentration. Hot water extraction dissolves the indigestible fiber (chitin), allowing the fiber to be removed from the extract when the water is removed. This process concentrates the polysaccharides to the effective levels identified in the published research.

Hot water extracts (dehydrated) are 50-80 times more potent than tinctures (cold water extracts) or mycelium biomass.

Each bottle contains 90 vegetarian capsules/400 mg per capsule.

Suggested Use: 1-2 capsules daily, AM and PM, or more as recommended by your health care professional. Take on an empty stomach. Two capsules per day supplies the daily immune support dose of MaitakeGold.

  • • Mushroom Science grows their own certified all natural mushrooms, on chemical-free wood, the way nature intended.
  • • Every extract is carefully prepared, capturing the complete essence of what made these medicinal mushrooms valuable in the ancient herbal traditions of Japan and China.

While medicinal mushrooms have been used for thousands of years in Traditional East Asian Medicine, rigorous scientific testing on the use of these mushrooms has been conducted only in the past thirty years. However, those thirty years of research have produced a wealth of information. They find that on all of the important points, science supports the preparation and use of medicinal all-natural mushrooms as described in the texts on Traditional Chinese Medicine.

This knowledge, a point of convergence between the clinical traditions of East and West, is the foundation of their approach to quality, and guides every step of their manufacturing and quality control process. It is your guarantee that you are purchasing a quality medicinal mushroom product specifically formulated to deliver the active constituents unique to each mushroom.
