Medicinal mushroom capsules with vitamin C to support the immune system

Fight the wet and cold season with a strong immune system
The body’s immune system plays a key role in keeping a person healthy. A balanced diet, plenty of outdoor exercise and a balanced psyche are essential prerequisites for an functioning immune system. In times of increased stress on the immune system, the body can sometimes benefit from additional support. In this case, regular intake of selected plant substances and micronutrients help support the body’s own immune defence.

Shiitake & C contains stomach-friendly vitamin C that supports the immune system in combination with the shiitake mushroom. Particularly recommended in the wet and cold season.

Shiitake – A medicinal mushroom with traditional use 
The medicinal mushroom shiitake (Lentinula edodes) is native to large areas of East Asia. The local population have used shiitake, which only colonises dying or dead hardwood, as a food product and medicinal mushroom for thousands of years. Modern methods of standardisation enable the targeted use of the mushroom extract in capsule form.

Physiological importance of the vital substances contained:
• The medicinal mushroom shiitake is rich in valuable beta-glucans
• The immunoactive classic vitamin C contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system
• Vitamin C helps maintain vitality in stressful situations by reducing tiredness and fatigue

At Biogena, “pure substance principle” means that we do not use technological additives which are used for the fully automated manufacturing of tablets, capsules and pills (e.g. anticaking or release agents and so forth) or additives that are used for optical reasons or for enhancing the taste of the products (artificial aroma, colouring agents, coatings etc.). Due to a semi-automatic manufacturing process, we can avoid these substances that often have a higher proportion in customary products than the actual active ingredients. In the case of nutritional supplements, additives have to be indicated in the list of ingredients, in the case of medication you find these substances under “inactive ingredients”. Here, the patient or customer can get useful information. Concerning the single ingredients, we also care for our raw materials to be free of carrier substances. In cases where this is not possible, we use natural food components such as maltodextrin, cellulose powder or calcium carbonate. The majority of our ingredients is produced exclusively for us – free of carrier substances (e.g. our enzymes our probiotics: other manufacturers often use lactose as a carrier – the product batches produced for us are explicitly without carriers).
