5 Products to Keep Your Immune System Strong + SafeFood, Nutrition TipsBy Green Goodness CoMarch 18, 2020 Share Well, things are escalating fast as the world is dealing with Coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Here in Australia, we are a good 10 days to 2 weeks behind the European outbreak. We have our Government making decisions to keep us safe. The 2 biggest things from a wellness/wellbeing point of view is that we keep our stress levels down – keep up our mindfulness practices more than ever and stay nourished. Nutrition is such a big part of what we can control as well as our mindset. In a time on uncertainty, let’s focus on what we can control. I wanted to share 5 Products I am using to boost my immune system and my families. ⚡️ Turkey Tail – Honour your gut with Turkey Tail Mushroom Liquid Extract by Life Cykel The Turkey Tail mushroom is an extremely abundant mushroom found predominantly in temperate forests. The name of the mushroom originates from its appearance, as the mushroom fruiting body resembles ruffled feathers of a turkey’s tail as it grows on decaying trees . The Benefits of Turkey Tail Mushroom The bioactive compounds within Turkey Tail mushroom that promote beneficial physiological activities are beta-glucans, mainly polysaccharopeptide (PSP) and Polysaccharide Krestin (PSK). They help to induce the production and activity of immune cells known as cytokines, which are key for cell signalling during an immune response, this in turn may help our body to more efficiently respond to infection [1-3].

The mushroom is commonly known as the mushroom of immortality, as it has been used for many millennia in Chinese medicine to treat various diseases such as insomnia and cardiovascular diseases. In China, the Reishi mushroom is regarded as a symbol of health, longevity, success and divine power. The Benefits of Reishi Mushroom The bioactive constituents that have been found to hold beneficial properties within the Reishi mushroom are mainly triterpenoids and polysaccharides such as beta-glucans. These are considered as potent agents for enhancing the immune system, as well as potentially having high antioxidant and anti-microbial capacities. The mushroom is also well known for its beneficial effects on sleep and relaxation. When consumed the mushroom can decrease sleep latency (time is taken to fall asleep) and may increase overall sleeping time, which explains why the mushroom has also been used to treat restlessness, palpitation, and insomnia in China for hundreds of years.
