The liver: A vital organ
The liver is a vital organ that contains about 13% of the body's blood supply and performs as many as 500 different functions. The cells of the liver absorb nutrients and detoxify the blood by eliminating harmful substances. Thus, a healthy liver protects the body against toxins. If your liver is off balance, you may experience all kinds of complaints, ranging from itching, sore muscles and fatigue to diarrhea, depression and jaundice.
Support the liver with turkey tail
Turkey tail, or coriolus versicolor, is one of the most studied medicinal fungi. The main properties of the well-known turkey tail are its liver-regenerating and virus-inhibiting abilities. In traditional Chinese Medicine, the coriolus versicolor has been used for thousands of years to support liver, heart and spleen. In addition, turkey tail provides energy for mind and body.
This mushroom has immunomodulatory properties, balancing your immune system. New Chapter uses the mycelium and the fruit body from the turkey tail. The active substances in the coriolus versicolor are polysaccharide K, which has been widely recommended and extensively researched in Japan, and protein-bound polysaccharide peptides. These polysaccharides have a detoxifying effect and stimulate the immune system. Turkey tail is often combined with reishi for optimal effect.
Detoxifying effect of reishi
The reishi, a bracket fungus, protects the liver because it has detoxifying properties. The polysaccharides and triterpenes of the reishi protect against toxic liver damage. The mushroom is used phyto therapeutically in cases of liver failure or weak liver function. The legendary reishi has been used for more than 2000 years to age healthily with more vitality and a stronger immune system and makes you more resistant to the negative effects of stress.
Reishi (ganoderma lucidum) is among the top 3 of medicinal mushrooms and is highly regarded in traditional Chinese herbal science. The Chinese name for the powerful mushroom is ling zhi: mushroom of immortality. The orange-brown lacquered mushroom contains vitamins (C, B, D, E and folic acid); minerals such as iron, magnesium, calcium and zinc, trace elements such as manganese, selenium, chromium and copper; and amino acids.
The most benefit comes from the bioactive substances including triterpenes and polysaccharides such as beta glucans (at least 15%). Phenols and other reishi ingredients are found to have powerful antioxidant and chelating properties. This means that they fight free radicals that may cause damage in the body and that they also 'catch' other harmful substances such as metals.
Reishi has antiviral and antibacterial properties and has a detoxifying effect. New Chapter LifeShield™ Liver Force™ uses the fungal threads (mycelium) and the pulp, that is, the hat and the trunk, from this lacquered fungus. Reishi products are legion, but they are not always as effective. New Chapter extensively tests its products and even conducts DNA tests to ensure that the authentic medicinal ling zhi strain is used in its LifeShield™ supplements.
Cordyceps stimulates liver function
In China cordyceps is called the imperial mushroom and grows in the high mountains of Tibet and China. Because the elongated mushroom only grew at an altitude of 3000 to 5000 meters, it was an exclusive and expensive product. Nowadays, the cordyceps can be easily grown anywhere, so that everyone can enjoy its special medicinal qualities. With its detoxifying properties the cordyceps stimulates liver function, supports the immune system in fighting viral liver infections, and inhibits impairment of the liver functions. In China this medicinal mushroom is therefore often used in the treatment of liver diseases.
Research shows that cordyceps stimulate the energy production of cells and the blood flow of organs. Partly because of this propensity, the mushroom is invigorating for body and mind and supports your stamina, mental clarity and learning ability. In addition, as an adaptogen the imperial mushroom improves the immune system and, for example, contains cholesterol-lowering beta glucans. The cordyceps contains L-tryptophan, polysaccharides (including cyclofurans, galactomannan, beta glucans, and beta mannans), lipids, and nucleoside analogues, which have virus inhibiting properties.
Support your organs with shiitake and poria
In addition to the beneficial mushrooms turkey tail, reishi and cordyceps, LifeShield™ Immune Support contains a mix of the medicinal poria and shiitake: full of beta-glucans, antioxidants, ergosterol derivatives, coriolan and polysaccharides. Poria grows on the roots of pine trees and is traditionally used as a Chi (life energy) tonic that supports the organs. The nutritious, brown tuber is slightly diuretic and sedative; Taoist hermits eat it to achieve enlightenment.
Chinese herbal science, but also the ancient Greeks and Romans, used mycotherapy: the use of mushrooms for health promotion ends. Medieval monks were also interested in the healing powers of mushrooms. The traditional use of mushrooms got the full attention of science only in the middle of the last century. Mycologists, biologists who research mushrooms, also became interested in the medicinal properties.
Initially, only Japanese and Chinese scientists were interested, but the West followed about 40 years ago. Mushrooms are evolutionarily speaking older than plants, yet we don't know much about them yet. There are now plenty of research results confirming the medicinal properties of traditional toppers such as the turkey tail (coriolus versicolor), shiitake and reishi.
Mushrooms as an adaptogen
Many mushrooms are adaptogens: a well-known term in the holistic diet world. In Ayurvedic medicine herbs and plants have served as adaptogen for centuries. The Latin verb 'adaptare' means adapting: adaptogens help your body to adapt to negative stimuli from, for example, stress. This restores balance. The pharmacological concept of adaptogens stipulates that they stabilize physiological processes and promote homeostasis. Adaptogens stimulate the body toward a balanced production of hormones. They do not ensure the production of hormones themselves, but remedy an imbalance.
A Life Shield of mushrooms
New Chapter combines ancient traditional use of nature's treasures with insights from modern science. NC’s mushroom-based product line is called LifeShield™ for a reason. These supplements provide a protective shield for your well-being. New Chapter uses the mycelium of the mushrooms (the fungal threads) and the fleshy part that grows above ground for products that actually contribute to your health.
New Chapter LifeShield™ products bring balance to your life and each offers a specific health benefit, from enhanced mental clarity to support of the respiratory functions. New Chapter mushrooms are grown in the United States. They are given the opportunity to fully develop, ensuring a complete life cycle and thus, full medicinal properties.
How are the mushrooms tested?
Not every mushroom offers the same health benefits, though they may look identical. New Chapter takes pride in their mushrooms carrying the Identify Assured quality distinction, which means that all strains used have been carefully qualified and checked. New Chapter uses advanced technology to match, control and guarantee all components of the mushroom. This means that even the DNA of the strains is tested to identify and compare them with results from their extensive database. The chemical fingerprint of the mushrooms is then examined to verify and confirm its effect. This way you can be sure that the correct beneficial properties of the mushroom are present in your LifeShield™ supplements.
