Fall Immunity and Brain Tune-Up
Fall is here, and that means it’s time to tune-up your immune system! Fortunately there’s an easy way to do so with our very own Mushroom Complex.
The unique blend of immune building mushrooms, chi tonics, and antiviral herbs is just the right combo for a broad range of immune protection. There’s also something about it that is even more amazing - its brain protective properties.
We use an herb extract called baicalein in our formula that few people have heard about. It’s a flavonoid extracted from a Chinese herb called scute, and is famous for its antiviral properties. Baicalein exerts anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties on the microglia system of the brain.
This system is the brain’s own type of immune cell and it makes up close to 15% of all brain cells. The idea here isn’t to stimulate the microglia, but to regulate inflammation so they don’t go out of control. Baicalein is perfectly suited for the task.
Baicalein’s neuroprotective qualities make it an ideal herb for protecting neurons from the inflammatory process of beta-amyloid in Alzheimer’s, damage from diabetic retinopathy and traumatic brain injury or TMI.
TMI actually triggers a cascade of inflammatory activity in the brain, and baicalein can help to improve long term outcomes associated with TMI and other memory issues.
One of the other aspects of baicalein that make it so important is its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and boost brain activity. It’s because of this aspect, that a program using both TianChi and Mushroom Complex may be your best bet as a broad range brain protection and recovery program.
There is no better time to tune up your brain and immune system than right now!
