Mushroom Boost is BochaSweet’s all-natural, organic blend of 4 unique adaptogenic mushrooms that helps to support the immune system. A potent dose of mushrooms that mixes easily into coffee, tea, smoothies, and recipes.
Mushroom Boost contains in each teaspoon (2g):
- 1000 mg Organic Cordyceps Militaris (Polysaccharide 10%)
- 500 mg Organic Reishi (Triterpines 2%)
- 250 mg Organic Shiitake (Polysaccharide 10%)
- 250 mg Organic Maitake (Polysaccharide 30%)
Did you notice Cordyceps makes up majority of this formulation. Why? Cordyceps does wonders for respiratory health.
Cordyceps is found in a higher altitude of Asia. From its ancient beginnings in traditional Chinese medicine, Cordyceps has been treasured for life-enhancing vitality by adapting to stress. It is also known as a “lung tonic”. This is great news for potentially helping to fight off respiratory infections by improving pulmonary function. There are also three other mushrooms in this formula that complement Cordyceps to help support the immune system.
Mushroom Boost: Immune System
Mushroom Boost was formulated primarily with the intention to help support the immune system. We surround ourselves on a daily basis to a wide variety of stressors which bombards our immune system constantly making us susceptible to invading viruses, germs, and bacteria. This is where mushrooms like Shiitake and Maitake play a role.
Shiitake is a treasure from Asia that stimulates the body’s T-lymphocytes, specialized white blood cells, that play a key role in the body’s defense against pathogens. Consuming Shiitake mushrooms daily can help improve immunity through improved cell proliferation, gut immunity, and decreased inflammation.
Maitake is considered the “king of mushrooms” in Japan and grows in clusters at the base of trees. The beta glucan content in Maitake has immune supporting and anti-viral effects. The bioactive polysaccharides in Maitake (30% in our formula) supports the body by helping to ward off invading pathogens. These health benefits make Maitake useful to supplement with during “cold” and “flu” season. Of course, we also believe taking it daily is a smart idea as well.
Reishi grows on hardwood trees and is one of nature’s most powerful immune-modulating herbs and has been utilized for over 2,000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It has been respectfully called the “mushroom of immortality” for supporting general wellness and vitality. Reishi has polysaccharides, antioxidant properties, and beta glucans which can help with immune support. In addition, the 2% extract of triterpines in our Reishi mushroom extract shows enhanced immunity and potential for anti-inflammatory effects.
Respiratory Health Benefits
As mentioned above, Cordyceps plays a significant role in supporting respiratory health. This is why we created a formulation with a higher dose of Cordyceps. Cordyceps has been found to increase ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which delivers energy to the muscles. In a study conducted on older adults, participants were instructed to take a placebo or 3 grams of Cordyceps for six weeks. The outcome was VO2 max increased by 7% in participants who had taken the Cordyceps while no change was seen among those that took the placebo. Cordyceps has anti-inflammatory properties which relax the bronchial walls so that better oxygen utilization can occur. Other research shows promising health benefits for supplementation with Cordyceps for respiratory illness, bronchitis, asthma, and COPD.
Feeling low energy? Sluggish after getting out of bed in the morning? We’ve all been there. But, we have a solution for you. Our Mushroom Boost was formulated to be an all-natural, caffeine free way to give you an energy boost without the jitters. The mushrooms inside are adaptogens which helps the body deal with stress while combating low energy levels. Reishi mushroom is a rockstar in our formula. It has health benefits that range from balancing hormones, supporting heart and liver function, soothing allergies (as well as asthma and infection), and helping to support healthy blood sugar levels.
We made sure to add 500 mg of Reishi to our formula with a 2% extract of triterpines which have a wide array of benefits from improved oxygen utilization to lower inflammation. Some interesting research shows that Reishi may possess unique properties that helps with healthy digestion and metabolism.
Bonus: Cognitive Benefits
As a bonus, Mushroom Boost has some unique cognitive benefits from Reishi: memory, brain function, mood, and concentration all receive a BOOST. Reishi is known to be a “nootropic”, cognitive enhancer, with promising research looking into how supplementation with this impressive mushroom can be helpful for those with cognition impairment. Cordyceps also plays a role in cognitive benefits by delivering more oxygen to the brain which results in better concentration. All in all, Mushroom Boost is a great way to help get rid of that annoying “brain fog”.
