Reishi is known as the ‘mushroom of immortality’ because of its protective, anti-aging, and rejuvenating properties. It also helps to modulate the immune system by increasing or decreasing certain immune system functions.
As animals age, like us humans, the immune system can become weaker and they can get ill more easily. Adding a medicinal mushroom such as Reishi to your pet’s daily mix can help keep them resilient, youthful, and healthy. Additionally, this mushrooms has been known to help with allergies!
Reishi also has the power to regulate the digestive system. So, If your pet has issues with bowel irritation, you can use Reishi mushroom capsules to help keep him regular, decrease intestinal discomfort, and modulate the microbiome.
Our beloved pets are all unique and expressive in their own ways. Some dogs experience separation anxiety, while young dogs may have excessive energy or be active at night. Reishi is known for its capacity to calm the nervous system and induce restful sleep. Older pets may have trouble moving and might experience sleep disturbances. Reishi can help to regulate the sleep cycle and relax your furry friend.
As with the other mushrooms on this list, Maitake helps to maintain proper immune system function.
Maitake contains polysaccharides such as beta-glucans, compounds that encourage healthy immune function, blood sugar regulation, and modulate inflammation. This means that your pet’s immune system will be in tip-top shape to fend off sickness.
Additionally, maitake regulates blood pressure and can help support the cardiovascular health of your pet. Again, similar to Reishi, it also promotes relaxation. Thanks to our fungi friends your fur friend will have the support he needs to keep his heart and circulation strong for daytime activities.
Turkey Tail's primary function is to support the immune system of the person or pet who takes it. Essentially, this mushroom boosts the production of the cells our bodies rely on to kill invading microbes or abnormal cells, such as those that form tumors. This mushroom also stimulates the production of certain cytokines, which are important messenger signals for the immune system. Therefore, turkey tail helps support a healthy immune system and promotes longevity.
Turkey tail is a mushroom that we recommend for the natural immunity boost it gives pets. It is also ideal for its anti-aging effects. No matter how young and healthy your pet is, they can always benefit from a little immune system strength.
Using shiitake mushroom extracts is a great way to improve liver function and decrease inflammation.
Additionally, it can keep the liver functioning properly and shiitake mushroom capsules can help keep your pet’s heartbeat regular and healthy.
Chaga is a fungus that’s incredibly rich in antioxidants and grows on birch trees in colder regions like Canada, Maine, Finland and Russia. It supports a healthy immune function and has potent compounds to help with digestion and skin health as well as being a potent anti-oxidant. If your dog or cat has a history of bladder or kidney stones, then it is wise not to use this species of fungus.
Each medicinal mushroom variety has a unique way of boosting your animal friend’s health. Conveniently, a mushroom blend like 5 Defenders is a reliable and well-rounded supplement to choose if you are undecided or want the benefits of a combination of the mushrooms mentioned above.
