Phytonutrients or Phytochemicals: Phytonutrients are certain organic components of plants, and these components are thought to promote human health. Also ORGANIC fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts and teas are rich sources of phytonutrients. Phytonutrients may serve as antioxidants, enhance immune response, enhance cell-to-cell communication, alter estrogen metabolism, convert to vitamin A (beta-carotene is metabolized to vitamin A), repair DNA damage caused by smoking and other toxic exposures, detoxify carcinogens through the activation of the cytocrome P450 and Phase II enzyme systems. Glyconutrients: Glyconutrients are plant saccharides that provide support for the immune system. Saccharides are necessary for the body’s creation of glycoforms, the structures on cell surfaces used to “talk” to other cells. Glyconutrients play a key role in supporting your immune system and promoting effective cell-to-cell communication. Recent scientific research has shown that eight simple sugars (monosaccharides)—most of which are no longer found in abundance in the standard modern diet—form virtual “words of life” at the cellular level. These sugars combine with proteins and fats to create glycoforms that coat the surface of nearly every cell in the body. Glycoforms function as cellular recognition molecules that communicate the messages a body needs to function in health. These messages directly affect your natural defense (immune) and endocrine (glandular) systems, in addition to supporting proper organ and system function.
Polysaccharides: Polysaccharides function with the immune system against the HIV virus, and other anti-bacterial and viral infections has been studied.
Beta Glucan: Modern scientific research demonstrate that Beta Glucans may ward off cardiovascular, immune deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, viral, bacterial, parasitic diseases. Also used for skin firming. Click here for more information.
Betulin or Betulinic Acid: Siberian Chaga contains large amounts of Betulinic Acid in a form that can be ingested orally and also contains the full spectrum of immune-stimulating phytochemicals. Chaga is the only mushroom to contain low pH Betulinic Acid.
Inotodiol: Has shown activity against influenza (flu) viruses A and B.
Triterpenes: Lower cholesterol, improves digestion, detoxifies the liver, hepatitis, chronic bronchitis, coughs and asthma. In vitro Triterpenes effective against MCF-7 cells.
Triterpenoids and Sterols: Promotes good blood circulation and assists to lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol.
Sterol: Derivatives effective for prostrate, herpes, lupus, allergies and psoriasis.
Lanosterol-linked triterpenes: Has been studied and researched by Dr. Kirsti Kahlos, School of Pharmacology, University of Helsinki, Finland. Dr. Kahlos’ team conducted studies validating the immuno-modulating impact of Lanosterol-linked triterpenes effective as a flu-vaccination.
Lanosterols: Assists to lower cholesterol and reduce candidas. Anti-bacterial.
Trametenolic Acid: For non-insulin dependent diabetics.
Saponins: Saponins are glycosides mainly of the triterpenoidal type found Siberian Chaga and in vegetables (spinach, tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts). Research studies indicate it lowers cholesterol. Saponins have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity.
Melanin: The Melanin produced by the Chaga mushroom demonstrates high antioxidant and genoprotective effects (Melanin Complex of Medicinal Mushroom Inonotus Obliquus, Journal of Medical Mushrooms, 2002, vol. 4). Melanin enhances the appearance of hair, skin and eyes, and restores a more youthful appearance.
Vitamin K: Effective in decreasing the appearance of spider veins and broken surface capillaries.
Vitamin-D2 (Ergosterol): One of three vitamins able to be absorbed by the skin and the only one that the body is able to manufacture (when exposed to ultraviolet light). This vitamin is necessary for the building of new skin cells, as well as bones, teeth, and hair. This vitamin regulates cell turn over and is used in prescription derivatives to help control psoriasis. Derivatives effective for antioxidant therapy.
