Medicinal mushrooms have been used for thousands of years in Eastern medicine. They are known for supporting healthy sleep, anxiety, focus, immune health, digestive health and more. Recently, there has been a rising demand from western consumers for mushroom-based supplements as the health benefits have become more widely understood.

Mechanism of Action
The beta-glucans present in mushrooms are believed to be responsible for the immunomodulatory and digestive health effects. SCFAs, and in particular, the generation of butyrate has been implicated as a primary mechanism for both immune and digestive support, by increasing gut barrier function, as well as its signaling properties. TriCelium™ contains beta-glucans.
