This is a β-glucan containing product named Lentinex in EU and LentinanXP in USA. Lentinex/LentinanXP has proven immune-enhancing bioactivity.
Lentinex/LentinanXP is naturally exported from the mycelium of the fungus Lentinula edodes in a proprietary fermentation process. This allows the product to remain in its natural, three-dimensional helical shape, which is responsible for its high level of efficacy.
The unique and patented production method leads to a very stable, active bio-ingredient. No preservatives are added and the product is free from pesticides, solvents, heavy metals or other animal feed toxicants. Due to the high efficacy of the ingredient, only a small daily dose of Lentinex® is necessary to initiate enhancement of the immune system.
