How is your immune system doing for you? Right now I am watching to a video from David Wolfe, who is considered to be one of the leading authorities on nutrition, about how important it is to take care of the immune system. He spent a good part of the video talking about a specific class of herbs that are very important to boost the immune system. These herbs are the medicinal mushrooms. He said that these are the mushrooms that grow on fallen trees. What they do is work to concentrate certain minerals that the trees have absorbed throughout their lifetime, which can exceed 100 years.
He mentioned 5 specific mushrooms to look for. Reishi, Maitake, Shiitake, Agaricus, and Coriolus to look for when looking to boost your immunity.
David Wolfe also mentioned how they also contain a lot of protein and can affect other systems like the nervous system and brain function as well as the blood and heart. Very cool stuff.

I take a mushroom supplement that has 4 of the mushrooms David talks about plus 10 more for a total of 14 medicinal mushrooms. Click here for the Immunity supplement.
