The reishi mushroom is highly valued in traditional Chinese medicine, where it is regarded as the “mushroom of eternal life”. Reishi is used in TCM to stabilize and strengthen the immune system, among other things. According to TCM teachings, it can also help combat tiredness and fatigue and reduce inflammation.

Superfood rice bran for the immune system

Rice bran is not considered a superfood for nothing. The bran contains all the valuable substances that are lost during the production of white rice. The full power of the valuable rice plant can be found here and you can make use of it. Rice bran is rich in proteins, minerals and vitamins. It is considered to strengthen the heart and promote blood circulation. Rice bran also contains a large number of antioxidants, which are important for the body’s own defenses. The effect on the NK cells, which form part of the white blood cells and, as “killer cells”, are an important component of a functioning immune system, should also be emphasized. Research has shown that substitution with rice bran over a period of two weeks already produces visible results in the activity of NK cells. Antioxidants also fight so-called free radicals, which can damage cells in the body and cause disease. In this way, they protect the body from damage and premature ageing.

To help your body process the rice bran with its valuable ingredients, we offer in our range BioBran in our range. This dietary supplement made from rice bran and shiitake can provide excellent support for general well-being and the immune system.
