Mushrooms have been used for centuries by many cultures based on the belief that they support important health functions. But what makes mushrooms so popular is their pleiotropic effect, meaning their beta-glucan polysaccharides, naturally occurring antioxidants and other bio-active compounds. These properties can affect multiple systems in the body, from supporting the nervous system to assisting digestion and immune function. The Chinese strongly believed that mushrooms could help reach “Qi” (i.e., the overall balance of the body and its systems) to support the maintenance of the body’s “vital energy”, or what we know as the immune system. Mushrooms are well studied for their immune qualities as well as energy and adaptogen potential. nutraMetrix® MycoAdapt is formulated with a mixture of ingredients that offer a healthy balance of adaptogens intended to help promote the harmony of the body and its many systems that play into the overall immune system.
nutraMetrix® MycoAdapt (‘myco’, meaning mushrooms and ‘adapt,’ meaning adaptogens) delivers 4g of powerful mushrooms, that work cohesively to support cognitive health, your immune and digestive systems, and help support energy and endurance. Mushrooms themselves can help balance our response to stress, however, nutraMetrix® MycoAdapt has the benefit of the adaptogenic root Astragalus. Astragalus root is one of the most valuable apoptogenic herbs. Believed to have special properties supporting the overall equilibrium and energy of the body, Astragalus remains popular for its role in supporting the regulation of the immune system, supporting cognitive health and healthy immune cell activity.
Lion’s Mane mushrooms, like other mushrooms, are regarded for their potential to support a healthy immune response and act as an adaptogen by supporting the body’s perception of stress. Unique however to Lion’s Mane are two compounds, hericenones and erinacines responsible for Lion’s Mane mushrooms’ impact on cognitive health. Not only do studies show Lion’s Mane may influence neuronal growth factors in the brain but additionally shown to help modulate neurotransmitters associated with stress response. nutraMetrix® MycoAdapt does not rely on Lion’s Mane alone but pairs this cognitive mushroom with another called Cordyceps.
Cordyceps, especially, are known to help promote energy to the cell, which can both have an impact on the overall “vital energy” one may experience. One study revealed that when participants took a 4g mushroom blend containing Cordyceps, for three weeks, they showed more improvements than the placebo group when measuring the amount of time before reaching physical and respiratory exhaustion when exercising at maximum intensity. (4) While the benefits in athletic endurance may seem to be only of benefit to a select niche or population, Cordyceps has also shown, in a clinical study, to be of benefit to an older population concerned about muscular health and sustained energy throughout the day. Researchers believe this may be due to the antioxidants found in the Cordyceps fungi and their impact on oxygen efficiency in the cell.
Because the accumulation of different stressors can also cause an imbalance in the gut as well as cognitive fatigue, Turkey Tail makes the perfect addition for helping to encourage a healthy gut and promoting a healthy immune system. Turkey Tail mushroom is a powerful immune-supporting adaptogen that is rich in polysaccharides and is primarily known for its calming effects on the digestive system because it contains prebiotics that prompt good bacteria to the gut. nutraMetrix® MycoAdapt’s gluten-free, vegan formula provides a tri-blend of mushrooms (Cordyceps, Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail) paired with Astragalus root, work in harmony to provide energy to the cell, immune and digestive support.
nutraMetrix® MycoAdapt is a dietary supplement formulated to support your immune system, provide energy and naturally aid in your body’s digestion and healthy stress response. Add this daily supplement to any beverage or mix it into your next cup of soup and reap the benefits of this fountain of youth with no aftertaste or caffeine jitters! nutraMetrix® MycoAdapt is ideal to make these beverages functional beverages because now your coffee, shake or greens powder has Lion’s Mane to help support cognitive health and promote mental clarity, Turkey Tail to support your immune and digestive systems, and Cordyceps to promote your natural energy and physical endurance.
