Did You Know? The shiitake mushroom is a symbol of longevity in Asia, due to its health-giving properties. It is one of the world’s most widely cultivated and extensively researched medicinal mushrooms.

Medi Mushrooms capsules are made using the fruiting body (cap & stalk) of the mushroom, which contain high concentrations of beta-glucans and are best extracted using hot water. Beta-glucans, which are responsible for the immune-supporting benefits of mushrooms, are hot water soluble, and this extraction method makes them highly bioavailable. As a result, the beta-glucans are more readily able to be absorbed and utilised by the body. 

Medi Mushrooms are vegan, Kosher, and Halaal and contain no synthetic preservatives, artificial colours, or flavours.

I originally bought these to help with menopausal weight gain. This still needs a bit of time, but it completely unexpectedly really helped with the hot flushes. I hardly have them anymore. And then of course there are all the other beneficial properties, for overall health.
