Support Your Overall Health !

Build your healthy gut bacteria with healthy herbal medicine to support digestion, moods, and your entire immune system.

The oldest book on plants is ShenNong’s Divine Farmers Materia Medica, written between 200 and 250 CE says,

 “the continuous consumption of reishi
makes your body light and young, lengthens your life and turns you
into one like the immortal who never dies.”  

  • Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma) is high in polysaccharides which is exactly what your gut bacteria like to eat.

  • These Traditional Chinese herbs have been used for centuries to boost health.

  • No pills – NO capsules full of fillers!

  • Immune Boost Herb Pack is about a 30 day supply (100g packet) and is the most concentrated extract (7:1) available.   (You would have to eat a lot of mushrooms to equal the amount of reishi found in each teaspoon of Immune Boost Herb Pack.

  • Studies suggest that reishi’s anti-aging effects are due to a lessening of oxidative stress

Usage instructions:

Mix 1/2 tsp. of Immune Boost Herb Pack in hot water and wait 5 minutes,

OR put granules straight into your mouth and swallow with water or juice. Mixing with other drinks or food will inhibit digestion.

This formula is best taken 30 minutes before or after meals to allow for optimum digestion and bio-availability of these herbs. The strength of the herbal formula is maximized when taken apart from other foods and drinks.

  • This combination of herbs has an inherited synergy of the herbs working together.

  • 7:1 extract (one gram of this product is equivalent to seven grams of the dried herbs)

  • No unnecessary fillers – NO magnesium stearate.

  • Pacific Herbs sells only the highest quality concentrated herbal granules.

  • Our commitment: To provide the finest quality botanical supplements.

Standardized quality control testing on each batch of raw herbs and formulas. Each product batch is tracked with lot numbers and expiration dates. Lot numbers correspond to “Certificates Of Analysis” otherwise known as “COA’s”. cGMP processing does not require COA’s.

COA’s are the GOLD STANDARD is herbal supplement manufacturing and required by countries such as Germany, Japan, and Australia. The U.S.A. is only beginning to catch up to the standards required in other parts of the world.

More Information on Reishi and Astragalus

Reishi mushroom is a fungus that holds an important place in the traditional medical systems of China, Japan, Korea and other Asian countries for its health-promoting effects. It is used as an immunostimulant by patients with HIV and cancer. The active constituents include both beta-glucan polysaccharides and triterpenes.

Reishi mushroom has antioxidant properties and may enhance immune response.

Reishi mushroom contains complex sugars known as beta-glucans. Lab studies suggest that these compounds may help stop the growth of abnormal cells. When animals were fed beta-glucans, some cells of their immune system became more active.

Limited data from clinical studies suggest reishi can strengthen immune response in humans. In addition, reishi mushrooms contain sterols that can act as precursors to hormones in the body, along with substances called triterpenes that may have blood pressure-lowering and anti-allergy effects. Reishi mushrooms have also been shown to slow blood clotting.

Extracts of reishi were shown to have immunomodulatory (2) (3) (4) (5) (12), renoprotective (9), anti-inflammatory (36), and hepatoprotective (37) properties both in vitro and in vivo. Clinical studies indicate its benefits in improving lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in men (10) (20), and in exerting mild antidiabetic effects and improving dyslipidemia (29). However, randomized controlled trials do not support the use of reishi to address cardiovascular risk factors associated with type 2 diabetes (38) (43). A pilot study of reishi spore powder did not find it helpful in treating patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) (1).

Reishi has also been studied for its anticancer potential. In vitro and animal studies indicate that it has antiproliferative  (39) and chemopreventive effects (21), alleviates chemotherapy-induced nausea (13), enhances the efficacy of radiotherapy (22), and increases the sensitivity of ovarian cancer cells to cisplatin (27). It may also help prevent cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity (28).

In small clinical studies, reishi increased plasma antioxidant capacity (6) (7), and enhanced immune responses in cancer patients (8) (40). In another study, a water-soluble reishi extract appeared to suppress development of colorectal adenomas (41). Remission of hepatocellular carcinoma was reported in a few cases in a single study (23). Another case series suggests a dietary supplement containing Reishi mushroom spores may have a negative effect on gastrointestinal cancer patients (42). Currently, there is no evidence for the use of reishi in first-line cancer treatment or to prolong long-term cancer survival. However, it may have a role in stimulating host immunity and enhancing tumor response (44).

An in vitro study reported that reishi mushroom extract has toxic effects in leukocytes (14). There are also a few documented cases of hepatotoxicity (24) (25). More research is therefore needed to determine its safety and effectiveness as an adjunctive cancer treatment.

Mechanisms of Action:

Beta glucans, polysaccharides present in reishi, have demonstrated antitumor and immunostimulating activities (18) (40). Its triterpene compounds may inhibit tumor invasion by reducing matrix metalloproteinase expression (16), and tumor metastases by limiting attachment to endothelial cells (17). Recent findings indicate that reishi induces natural killer (NK) cell cytotoxicity against various cancer cell lines via activation of the natural cytotoxic receptors (NKG2D/NCR) and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK)-signaling pathways, which result in exocytosis of perforin and granulysin (31). Reishi polysaccharides were also shown to increase expression of the major histocompatibility (MHC) class I and costimulatory molecules on melanoma cells, resulting in enhanced antitumor cytotoxicity (32). In human ovarian cancer cells, reishi inhibits proliferation by suppressing vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression and upregulating connexin 43 expression (39). Its extracts also inhibited 5-alpha-reductase, an important enzyme that converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone and is upregulated in benign prostatic hyperplasia (9).
