Mushroom Wisdom - Super Meshima - 120 Vegetarian Tablets
Mushroom Wisdom Super Meshima contains 200 mg of pure Meshima extract (PL-Fraction) in combination with Maitake D-Fraction (TD-Fraction) and Vitamin C.
The Meshima mushroom (Phellinus Linteus) grows on mulberry trees indigenous to a Japanese island bearing the same name, which literally means "Women's Island." Research demonstrates that Meshima may increase the activity of B cells and T lymphocytes as well as increase cytotoxic activity of NK cells. In a comparative study conducted in Japan, an extract from Meshima demonstrated strongest activity among 17 medicinal mushrooms. In recent studies in the US Meshima also demonstrated strongest immune enhancing activity in maintaining healthy breast cells.
