Unlike other products that just overstimulate the immune system, Immunisol™ helps the immune system function at its best. Immunisol™ contains shiitake mushroom mycelia extract, which has a numerous clinical study data for immune support.
One open-label study that was done at Yale School of Medicine looked at the effect of Shiitake mushroom mycelia extract on healthy volunteers aged 50 years or more. The researchers gave the study participants a daily dose of 1,350 mg of shiitake mushroom mycelia extract, which is the equivalent amount to 6 capsules of Immunisol™ for 60 days. They concluded that shiitake mushroom mycelia extract supported immune system functions based on biomarkers in the study participants’ blood. According to the study, immune system benefits by shiitake mushroom mycelia extract were noticeable after it had been taken for 30 days.
One double-blind, placebo-controlled study with healthy volunteers conducted in Japan also shows that shiitake mushroom mycelia extract supported immune function.
Dietary supplements containing shiitake mushroom mycelia extract are some of the best-selling supplements in Japan and have been used in clinics in the U.S. for about 15 years. Dried shiitake mushroom is often used as a food ingredient as well as for immune support in Okinawa, Japan, where people have one of the longest lifespan in the world.
