Beta-glucans are one of Mother Nature’s more potent healing gifts, found most concentrated in mushrooms. All mushrooms have thousands of tiny thread-like roots that grow into the ground or into whatever medium in which they are growing. Called mycelium, these roots actually contain the greatest amounts of beta-glucans. Yet, when we buy mushrooms, this is the part that has typically already been discarded! So, if we are seeking maximum benefits, we must find a mycelium source that is more potent.
Here are three top drugs derived from beta-glucans:

It is best to have an organic, mycelium-based mixture of various synergistic types of mushrooms. Dr. Georges M. Halpern, author of Healing Mushrooms, states:

The idea is to feed the body a lot of different active substances derived from unique mushroom sources to lift the immune system relatively quickly.”
