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.

Immune Support

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.

Energy Levels

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”.

Cordyceps are harvested in the high mountain regions of the Himalayas and used for centuries as food and medicine, dating back to the 15th century. The polysaccharides in cordyceps help to support immune function and energy production – ATP (adenosine triphosphate) – which combats stress.

From its ancient beginnings in traditional Chinese medicine, cordyceps has long been used as a highly treasured herb known for life-enhancing vitality by adapting to stress and for easy respiration as a “lung tonic”.

2. Shiitake

You can find these mushrooms easily at grocery store and make a great addition to any meal.

These mushrooms are rich in nutrition: high in B Vitamins, Vitamin D, potassium, zinc, and magnesium.

Shiitake mushrooms are a treasure from Asia that have been used for a long time as an adaptogen that can help the body deal with stress, and at the same time provide a boost to the immune system. It stimulates the body’s T-lymphocystes, these are specialized white blood cells that play a key role in the body’s defense against invading pathogens.

What is also unique about shiitake is that they contain all 8 essential amino acids as well as special fatty acid called linoleic acid.

3. Maitake

Maitake is a polypore mushroom known as the “hen of woods” that grows in clusters at the base of trees and also considered the “king of mushrooms” in Japan. It has been used in both Japan and China as both a food and tonic herb for thousands of years to help enhance immunity.

The beta-D-glucans found in maitake mushrooms help to boost the immune system.

4. Reishi

Reishi is another popular adaptogenic mushroom and are also known as ling zhi in Chinese. They are tied to longevity, better immune function, and mental clarity. They can be consumed as a tincture, tea, powder form, or in soup.

Reishi grows on hardwood trees and is considered one of nature’s most powerful immune-modulating herbs, and has been utilized for over 2,000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Used for millennia in Asia, Reishi has been respectfully called the “mushroom of immortality”. Surprisingly, reishi mushrooms also have the potential to act as a detoxifying liver cleanse.

It is also underrated for its nootropic properties (enhance memory or other cognitive functions) which help boost mental performance and overall brain health.
