Power Mushrooms is a combination of five mushrooms known to have immune system regulating functions. Studies on Ganoderma (Ling Zhi) have shown it to regulate immune functions and coronary and cerebral blood flow, reduce blood lipid levels, protect the liver from toxic chemical damage, and treat liver disease. Shiitake is used in Japan to treat tumors and immune deficiency. Polyporus (Zhu Ling) is used in China as an anti-inflammatory in kidney diseases and as a source of tumor-inhibiting polysaccharides. Tremella (Bai Mu ER) contains tumor- and ulcer-inhibiting polysaccharides. Poria (Fu Ling) is a digestive aid and mild sedative. Taken together, the mushrooms in this formula act as an effective Qi tonic.

The same extracts are used to treat myasthenia gravis, where inappropriate immune attacks are made against peripheral nerves.
2. Consider using Power Mushrooms when there is inflammation after an injury.
3. The mushrooms in Power Mushrooms do not generally cause problems in conditions attributed to Candida, but their use should be monitored.
