Enhancing Immunity with Agaricus

By February 6, 2012

Follow me on:

A type of medicinal mushroom, agaricus is often touted as an all-natural immune-booster. Indeed, there's some evidence that agaricus may help stimulate the immune system and even help strengthen your defense against some forms of cancer. However, since most of this evidence comes from animal-based research and test-tube studies, it's too soon to recommend agaricus for cancer defense.

To keep your immune system strong, it's important to follow a diet rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and keep your stress in check. In addition, some studies show that certain herbs (including echinacea and astragalus) can help bolster your immune system and help fend off colds. In order to get the full benefit of these herbs, it's important to start taking your supplements as soon as cold symptoms set in. Read the article: Agaricus - What You Need to Know.
