lifestyles, and these new products provide a trusted and simple way to
do so.”

Made with organic mushrooms and herbs, the Mushroom+Herbs line
from Gaia Herbs utilizes mushroom fruiting bodies, with no fillers, in
potent extract form. Additional herbs offer condition-specific support,
resulting in unique blends each validated for purity, potency and
identity.* Formulations within the Mushroom+Herbs line are:

  • Liver Defense: The liver is an integral part of the immune
    system, in addition to controlling many natural detoxification
    channels in the body. Liver Defense helps maintain liver
    function, which nourishes the immune system, with the Mushrooms
    Reishi, Turkey Tail and Maitake.* Chinese Skullcap root, Astragalus
    root and Schisandra berry help support a healthy inflammatory response
    in the liver.* Liver Defense is formulated to promote immune
    support and liver defense.*
  • Everyday Immune: A healthy immune system is the foundation for
    overall wellness. Mushroom fruiting bodies contain polysaccharides
    that are known to support the immune system at the cellular level.* Everyday
    Immune
    combines four pure, potent Mushrooms — Maitake, Reishi,
    Chaga and Cordyceps — with deep immune-supporting herbs like
    Astragalus, Turmeric and Schisandra.* Everyday Immune is
    formulated to be taken daily to support whole-body wellness.*
  • Mental Clarity: The brain is the body’s control center; a
    healthy brain and clear mind are essential to wellbeing. Mental
    Clarity
    includes Mushrooms like Lion’s Mane, traditionally used to
    support the nervous system, and promote cognitive function and a
    healthy memory.* Reishi and Gotu Kola traditionally have been used to
    support healthy circulation in the brain.* Mental Clarity
    provides antioxidant support and promotes a healthy inflammatory
    response.*
  • Cordyceps+: This blend supports the body’s ability to manage
    fatigue and promote healthy energy levels.* It uniquely combines two
    of the best-known adaptogens, Cordyceps and Ashwagandha, and also
    contains fermented Ginger root as a warming herb that acts as a
    bioenhancer (similar to Black Pepper in Gaia Herbs’ Turmeric
    formulas).*
  • Reishi+Turmeric: This blend combines the best-known immune
    mushroom, Reishi, with Turmeric, for a blend of extracts that supports
    both the immune and inflammatory responses.* Reishi+Turmeric
    also contains Shiitake, another immune-supporting mushroom, with
    fermented Ginger root as a warming herb that acts as a bioenhancer.*
    Traditionally, Reishi is a mushroom that has been used in a variety of
    ways: to support heart health, as a calming adaptogen, and to support
    energy and stamina.*
