For centuries, traditional cultures have reaped the health benefits of medicinal mushrooms. Back then, the knowledge was handed down from generation to generation.
Fast forward to 1928. This was the year Alexander Flemming discovered penicillin from a mold. Modern research on mushrooms took off shortly after. Since then, over 1000 different mushroom species have been thoroughly researched for their medicinal benefits.
Importance of Mushrooms
Some of the information uncovered by research over the years is that many medicinal mushrooms are wicked beneficial for our immune systems because of their high concentration of Beta-Glucans. Beta-Glucans are componds important to immune modulating in our bodies. They are polysaccharides that aid our white blood cells to function optimally so they can fight everything from insignificant bacteria that we don't even feel to serious disease causing organisms. This is why the amount of Beta-Glucans in your medicinal mushroom supplement is very important. Experts figured out that if a medicinal mushroom supplement has less than 15% Beta-Glucans per serving it isn't a very potent immune booster. Therefore, the percentage of Beta-Glucans in a medicinal mushroom supplement is a good indicator of the potency and quality of that supplement. + More on this subject below.

With over 1000 medicinal mushroom varieties to comb through, it's not surprising that it took Perfect Supplements over three months just to figure out which mushrooms to add to their immune boosting supplement. And here's why they chose these three.
*Reishi Mushroom Potential Benefits
In Chinese medecine, Reishi mushrooms are also known as "The Spirit Mushroom" and "The Mushroom of Immortality". Reishi is considered a chi, or Qi, tonic in traditional Chinese medicine.
Aside from immune boosting, Reishi mushrooms are best known for their abitilty to support the liver with detox. Their detoxing effect can help rejuvenate the whole body.
Because of a high concentration of triterpenoids, Reishi mushrooms are also well known for their capacity to balance and calm the nervous system. For many, they have successfully been used to treat insomnia as well as anxiety.
Research also demonstrates that Reishi mushrooms may help balance hormones by supporting the endocrine system. And, they contain nutrients that are important to heart and lung function.
- Support White Blood Cells to boost immune system
- Assists proper liver function and detoxification of our bodies
- Balances nervous system for better sleep and less anxiety
- Support endocrine system to balance hormones
- Provide key nutrients for optimal heart and lung function
With all these benefits, it is easy to see why Perfect Supplements chose Reishi for their Perfect Mushroom Immunity.
*Chaga Mushrooms Potential Benefits
Like Reishi Mushrooms to the Chinese, Chaga Mushrooms have been used medicinally by traditional people in Russia and Europe for millennia. They are highly sought for their multiple immune boosting benefits, including an amazingly high ORAC value – more than even blueberries and acai berries! The ORAC value is a measure of a food's antioxidant level. They are also very high in Beta-Glucans, which is another measure of immune boosting potency.
They also aid our bodies in the elimination of mutated cells. Chaga mushrooms can enhance the activity of T-cells in our bodies. These are white blood cells whose job it is to locate and destroy mutated cells. This is very important for everyone because the Big C is mutated cells.
Additionally, Chaga mushrooms stimulate the production of cytokines – proteins that help balance our immune system. Cytokines also stimulate the production of white blood cells, which combat inflammation and infection throughout our bodies.
Other significant potential benefits of Chaga mushrooms are:
- Anti-inflammatory properties
- Adaptogenic herb – helps our bodies fight all kinds stressors
- Cholesterol balancing for heart health
- Thyroid balance
- Supports healthy digestion and overall gut health
- Improved brain function
- Lower blood sugar levels
- Activates the Pineal gland – which regulates hormone production including melatonin for a good night's sleep
- Boosts energy
- Reverses accelerated aging due to pollutants and toxins in our environment
*Turkey Tail Mushrooms Potential Benefits
Since the 14th century, traditional Chinese practitioners have used Turkey Tail Mushroom teas for a variety of ailments. Liver and urinary health, immune support, upper respiratory issues, digestive health and overall well being are just a few reasons.
Turkey Tail is one of the most widely researched medicinal mushroom out there, mainly because it provides two immune promoting polysaccharaides – PSK (polysaccharide Krestin) and PSP (polysaccharide peptide). They also provide oodles of antioxidants and have antimicrobial and antiviral properties.
Other potential benefits of a daily medicinal dose of Turkey Tail mushrooms include:
- Anti-inflammatory properties
- Lower Blood Sugar levels
- Lower cholesterol
- Aid in digestive health
- Reduce blood pressure
- Helps develop bone marrow – excellent for bone health
Now that we've seen a little about these three amazing mushrooms it is easy to see why Perfect Supplements chose Reishi, Chaga and Turkey Tail for their Perfect Mushroom Immunity!

+ Is your medicinal mushroom supplement or snack as potent as it claims?
Due to the extended popularity of medicinal mushrooms over the past decades, supplements and snacks with mushrooms have cropped up all over the place making claims about immune boosting and more. All kinds of processed foods can be found with mushrooms making claims about health benefits. Before you buy any medicinal mushroom supplement or snack you need to take a good look at what's in it. Don't be fooled by deceptive packaging and labeling! Many of the supplements and most of the snacks and processed food don't actually have enough quality mushrooms in them to be considered medicinal.
There are a few things you can look at before buying a supplement or snack to determine it it actually has a medicinal level of high quality, potent mushrooms. The first thing you need to look at is the amount of mushrooms per serving. All the research on immune boosting used sample sizes between 1000mg and 3000mg of medicinal mushrooms. If you buy something with less you will have to increase your serving size to compensate if you want to reach a medicinal level.
Perfect Mushroom Immunity easily checks this box with 2400mg per serving of medicinal mushrooms! That's 800mg each of USDA organic Reishi, Chaga and Turkey Tail mushrooms.
You can also look at the amounts of certain polysaccharides, specifically Beta-Glucans and Alpha-Glucans. Beta-Glucans are great for their immune boosting power, as noted above. As stated, we want a minimum of 15% Beta-Glucans in a good sample of medicinal mushrooms. And Perfect Mushroom Immunity almost doubles that with 28.6%!
The amount of Alpha-Glucans is also important, but less is better. This is because there are not many Alph-Glucans in mushrooms, but there are a lot of Alpha-Glucans in the growing medium. If a sample has a high amount of Alpha-Glucans, it is an indicator that it has a lot of the medium in the sample and less medicinal mushrooms. Ideally, the amount of Alpha-Glucans should be under 5%. Perfect Mushroom Immunity was tested and only has 2.37% Alpha-Glucans. Definitely not a lot of groing medium in their supplement!
Usage and Dosage for Perfect Mushroom Immunity Powder:
Take 1 tsp daily – at once or in smaller doses. Or take as directed by your health care provider. Try this powdered medicinal mushroom supplement in tea, coffee, smoothies and more!
