Mushrooms for a good working immune system
Mushrooms have a positive influence on the immune system. Extensive research has shown that the almond mushroom effectively supports and modulates the immune system.
Mushrooms are a rich source of antioxidants and contain certain fibres called non-water soluble 1.3-1.6 betaglucans, which are known to enhance the resistance against infection. Very high concentrations of these fibres were found in particular in the almond mushroom or Agaricus Blazei Murill (Murill). A well functioning immune system is important because it keeps harmful external influences away. These extraordinary fibres are not commonly found in other foodstuffs. Due to their immunomodulatory actions, mushrooms are a good choice to add to your diet.
