Reduces levels of total cholesterol and increases HDL levels (1) therefore improving the lipid profile and reducing risk of cardiovascular diseases.

The immune system and tumours:

It has an immune modulating effect by activating macrophages and simulating the production of interleukins. Highly recommended for immunodeficient patients with cancer or other pathologies (2). Especially in gastric cancer where it has been shown to be able to prolong the patients survival in combination with chemotherapy (fluropyrimidine S - ) (3) , and in advanced colorectal cancer, where it can reduce the unwanted effects of chemotherapy (nausea and abdominal pain ) and improve immunological parameters (4).

The circulatory system:

Prevents high blood pressure (3). It reduces athermanous plaque, improves peripheral resistance and prevents thrombosis (4), all of which are modifiable cardivascular risk factors.


Hepatic protection by improving liver function (5), effective in hepatitis B treatments.

Other actions:

Inhibits HIV enzymes (6), prevents cavities due to inhibition of dental plaque formation (7), during hyperuricemia treatments and prevents cachexia in cancer due to its alkalising action.

Should mushrooms be avoided in Autoimmune conditions? Are they immune stimulators?
Mushrooms are biological response modifiers (BRMs), or adaptogens, i.e. they modulate the immune system. So they modulate autoimmune conditions and inflammation levels in the body, whilst helping the body fight off pathogens. The most powerful immune modulator, recommended for autoimmune conditions, is Agaricus Blazei Murrill, or Sun mushroom (as in our MicoSol product), followed by reishi, then cordyceps sinensis is recommended for complaints like lupus.
