Support Your Health This Flu Season with Medicinal Mushrooms

Medicinal Mushrooms Can Help You Fight The Flu

Mushrooms contain some of the most powerful natural medicines on the planet, especially for boosting your immunity during cold and flu season. If you want one immune booster to add to your arsenal this  flu this season, Garden of Life’s RM10  and RM10 Ultra are supplements you need to know about.

For centuries, medicinal mushrooms like Reishi and Cordyceps have been used in Chinese medicine. Only recently has research into the effects of mushrooms on the immune system put medicinal mushrooms into the spotlight.

RM-10 is a combination of 10 tonic mushrooms that have been specially selected for their superior genetic heritage and then carefully cultivated to ensure they maintain their integrity and potency.

Medicinal Mushrooms in RM10 Immune Support

Blends of Mushrooms are More Effective for your Immune System Than any One Mushroom Alone

This blend is synergistically balanced with Cat’s Claw (an anti-inflammatory) and Poten-Zyme Selenium, a highly absorbable form of selenium. Selenium supports immune cell function and response.

Here’s What Mushroom Research Has Shown

Blends of Mushrooms are More Effective for your Immune System Than any One Mushroom Alone

For therapeutic purposes it’s best to combine several mushroom species.

Why is this? 

Stubborn pathogens in your body can build up a  resistance to one mushroom alone but unlikely to do so with a variety of several species. Secondly, each mushroom species has a unique arsenal of anti-infective and immune enhancing properties. Lastly, each mushroom also addresses unique forms of exhaustion and low energy.

 RM-10’s combination of 10 organically grown, tonic mushrooms have been specially selected for their superior genetic heritage and then carefully cultivated to ensure they maintain their integrity and potency.

The Medicinal Mushrooms Included in RM10 and their Benefits

  • Reishi:  potent antiviral and may be used to alleviate  influenza A viral infections as well herpes.  For a list of clinical research on the health benefits of Reishi mushrooms click here.
  • Shitake: helps body tissues to absorb cholesterol and lower the amount circulating in the blood. Shitakes also have antiviral and anticancer effects.

How Can You Fix Your Gut? Bacillus Spores

Bacillus Subtilis

What are Bacillus Spores?

Bacillus subtilis is a bacteria that is commonly found in water, soil, air and decomposing plant residue.

This spore has an extraordinary ability to survive harsh environments such as extreme heat and acidity. More importantly this spore is found in your gut. 

In fact, it’s one of the “good guys”. You want bacillus subtilis spores in your gut.

These are the spores which produce endospores that make positive changes to your gut and support your immune system.

You’ve probably heard that increasing the diversity of your gut microbes is a good thing. You’ve maybe even taken different formulas of probiotics. Maintaining a proper ratio of good spores in your gut is crucial for maintaining good gut health and a strong immune system.

That’s a big reason why many people take probiotics for conditions like Leaky Gut, IBS, Crohn’s, and Ulcerative Colitis. If you have been taking probiotics and still not finding relief you may want to consider taking Bacillus Subtilis spores and here’s why.

Why Bacillus Spores?

  • Bacillus Spores are resistant to the harsh stomach acid environment which allows it to get into the digestive system and do its work.
  • Bacillus Spores are able to suppress the growth of harmful bacteria.
  • Bacillus Spores strengthen the mucosal lining and enhance the growth of other good strains such as lactobacillus spores in the gut.
  • Bacillus spores significantly repair damage to the intestinal lining in the gut. These tight junctions, when not performing optimally, allow toxins to leek into the bloodstream. (Leaky Gut) Click Here to Read More
  • Bacillus spores play a role in reconditioning the body’s metabolism. When combined with a diet rich in healthy fibers and low sugar, this spore turns the body into a fat burning machine. Microbiologist Kiran Krishnan has been studying spores for the last 15 years, he says, “If there wasn’t reason enough before to improve gut health, this probiotic spore might now be the one “magic pill” we’ve been seeking for long-term, healthy and sustainable weight management”

Which Probiotics Contain Bacillus Spores?

We recommend Perfect Pass Probiotics to our clients. Perfect Pass contains 3 pharmaceutical grade strains of bacillus spores.

These bacillus spores are able to survive stomach acid. They make lasting changes in the gut to heal the gut and provide relief of symptoms.

Each of these bacillus spores has a distinct function and synergistically contributes to the combined effectiveness of this probiotic.

Probiotics and Our Immune System with Ross Pelton

SporesWe are excited to share the latest information on the Microbiome with you where we interview Ross Pelton, the Scientific Director for Essential Formulas. He is a Health Longevity Coach, Pharmacist and Clinical Nutritionist. Today we asked Ross to talk to us about the role probiotics have in supporting our immune system.

In addition, Ross  is also a clinical nutritionist and helps people with diet, nutrition and natural therapies. He truly is an expert in his field.

In case you missed out, we have posted all our  interviews with Ross in one convenient place. He shared with us exciting new information on gut health, the Microbiome and the Pathobiome. Click Here to see all of our videos in the Microbiome Series.

How is Your Immune System Supported by Probiotics?

We asked Ross how spores in Dr. Ohhiras formula support our immune system. Heres what he had to tell us:

  • First of all the bacteria in Dr. Ohhiras probiotics support the growth and proliferation of your innate bacteria which gives them the capability of transforming your microbiome.

 

  • Spores produce Short Chain Fatty Acids. These are slightly acidic compounds produced by the probiotics which create an optimal acid balance in your intestinal tract. This acid balance supports the growth of good bacteria and suppresses  growth of the bad bacteria.

 

  • Spores also produce bacteriocins and defensins. Think of these as natural  antibiotics in your system.

 

  • Spores produce hydrogen peroxide which suppresses  the growth of candida yeast.

Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics have a broader number of different bacteria. A broader range of bacteria means a healthier microbiome and immune system.

 

Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics are truly unique, they have a different beginning than other probiotics on the market. Their spores are fed from natural ingredients like mountain spring water, organic fruits, and vegetables that have been fermented for three to five years.

Five Reasons Why You May Need to Boost Your Immune System

Have you had a hectic week? If so, your immune system may need a little TLC to get back to functioning properly and protecting you.

What do I mean by a hectic week?

  • Excess Stress
  • Lack of sleep
  • Poor diet
  • No time to exercise
  • Too busy to take your multi-vitamin
We have all been there. Sometimes due to life circumstances our health takes the back seat.
Don’t let that cause you to feel fatigued, run down or end up with a cold.
Maybe you have been sick or recently took a course of Antibiotics.
If any of these ring true to you…you should assume your immune system is weakened.
 
What can you do to immediately start boosting your immune system?

Give your Immune System a boost with Essential Vitamin & Mineral Multi spray.

Right now take advantage of our special on Vitamin Sprays, buy two & take 50% off the second spray.

It’s so easy to use, just throw one in your purse, backpack or car and take a few sprays whenever it’s convenient. 

How does it work?

When vitamins are sprayed directly into the mouth they are absorbed instantly through the mouth lining, side-stepping the digestive tract completely. 

Literally within seconds it’s delivered via the bloodstream to the various parts of the body for immediate use. 

Oral vitamin sprays has been shown to be up to 9 times more effective than swallowing pills or capsules.

How does your immune system become compromised?

  • Stress

When your body is reacting to emotional or mental stress it produces cortisol hormones. You may have heard of Fight or Flight. You need this for survival. This is okay on a short term basis but over time, when your stress is chronic, these extra cortisol hormones will put you at risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, digestive problems and a weak immune system. Your body will be in  a constant inflammatory state which weakens your immune system.

How does this work?

Your body is not putting energy into fighting a cold or healing because it’s just trying to survive. This is extremely taxing on our immune systems if it’s your chronic state.

If you don’t already meditate try out some techniques from an on-line Stress Management Program or even download a free meditation app on your phone. As little as five minutes a day can make a difference. Studies show that that when your body is in a calm relaxed state your immune function is increased.

  • Lack of Sleep

Research shows that not getting adequate sleep and even a short term loss of sleep has a significant impact on how the immune system functions. 

Recent research conducted by the University of Washington Health Sciences/UW Medicine found that sleep deprivation has the same effect on your immune system as physical stress.

In one study conducted 15 people stayed awake for 29 hours and their white blood cells were measured. What they found is that their immune system become hyperactive and produced elevated levels of white blood cells, the amounts were typical of what you would expect if you had an illness or disease.

Optimize your sleep and commit to at least 8 hours a night.

  • Poor diet 

You know that a whole foods diet with a variety of vitamins and minerals is the best way to have a healthy immune system but is not always possible. The fact is when we eat processed foods or those with too much salt, sugar and saturated fat, it really messes with the entire ecosystem!

Junk food causes the wrong bacteria and yeast to grow.

When your gut bacteria tilts towards a greater amount of bad bacteria you have less of the good bacteria. These trillions of microbes are what make up your immune system.

90% of your immune system resides in our gut.

This is why poor digestion goes hand in hand with weakened immune function and you aren’t able to fight off bugs like the cold and flu the way you should. Try supplementing with a reputable probiotic to tip the scale to the good bacteria.

  • Lack of exercise

Reduced exercise can cause your body to feel lethargic and run down. Movement can support your bodies natural detoxification process, keep your lymph moving, and give a natural boost to a weak immune system.

  • Not supplementing with a multivitamin 

Not getting adequate amounts of Vitamins, minerals and nutrients from your diet can lead to a depressed immune system. Take a multivitamin to fill in nutritional gaps. We recommend Perfect Pass Immune Formula. It comes in powder form or capsules.

If you have a hectic lifestyle and find you are constantly juggling work, children, families or school, just pick up a bottle of Essential Multi Vitamin & Mineral Spray and throw it in your bag. Anytime you feel your immune system could be compromised take a few sprays. It’s so convenient.
