Why Maitake for Immune Support
With the recent covid pandemic, consumers have shifted their attention to immunity, and in 2020, immune support supplement recorded a 50% increase over the previous year. The top sellers were vitamin C, multivitamins, and zinc. The purpose of these vitamins and zinc is to keep the immune system in the best condition nutritionally by supplying them. In case of its deficiency, the immune system will be decreased. It is true that the nutritional requirements will be the essential, however our immune system cannot maintain the best condition with nutrition alone.
This is because we all have to face various burdens in order to live (stress, fatigue, lack of sleep, aging, lack of exercise, binge eating, side effects of medication, etc.). Depending on the amount of these loads, the activity of our immune system goes up and down. This is why we propose the Shogun Maitake extract. Our extract is a polysaccharide with a special structure called beta-glucan extracted from our cultivated maitake mushroom after many years of research. (Reference: Maitake Health) (Reference: The Health Power of Maitake, page 6) As a result, our “cultivated maitake mushroom extract” has attracted attention and clinical trials and drug R&D companies have started clinical trials for pharmaceutical products.
In addition, this extract has the same effect when administered orally as when injected. When taken orally, the immune system activates immune cells, increasing their ability to destroy cancer cells and attack other foreign substances. There are many substances that can cause health problems due to nutrient deficiency, but there are only a few substances that directly activate the immune system by working independently of nutrients when eaten, and yet there is abundant evidence to support this. We suggest that nutritional status be maintained the best by vitamins and zinc, and take Shogun Maitake extract to support the reduction of immune activity.
