FUKKEN with Ascophyllan

In addition, ascophyllan, extracted from the Longevity seaweed, is added to further enhance the synergistic effect and support the immune system.

The Power of Shiitake Mycelium L.E.M.

Shiitake mushrooms have spores (seeds) on the underside of the cap (fruiting body) that we eat, and by releasing these spores, it produces offspring. A typical single spore a monokaryotic germinates into mycelium, which cannot reproduce sexually; when two compatible monokaryotic mycelia join and form a dikaryotic mycelium, that mycelium may form fruiting bodies such as mushrooms. In other words, the shiitake mushroom mycelium is the mother, and the shiitake mushroom (umbrella part) is like the baby. Just as a mother stores a lot of nutrients to give birth to a baby, the mycelium just before producing shiitake mushrooms contains more nutrients than shiitake mushrooms. L. E M. (Lentinula Edodes Mycelium) is the most potent nutrient in shiitake.


Lentinan, Xylose and arabinose

Lentinan, an ingredient found in shiitake mushrooms is said to act as a selective immune protector. Chemicals harm both bad and healthy cells, but lentinan does not harm healthy cells*

Xylose, Arabinose In addition to lentinan, shiitake mycelium contains components such as Xylose and Arabinose. These ingredients support interferon and interleukin in the body. It is an immune modulator that uses a self-defense function to protect us from bacteria and viruses. Immunotherapy medicines derived from these amazing mushrooms are being developed worldwide.*.

Interferons belong to the large class of proteins known as cytokines, molecules used for communication between cells to trigger the protective defenses of the immune system that help eradicate pathogens. It was found that the double stranded RNA (ribonucleic acid) contained in shiitake mushrooms has the function of stimulating interferon production in our body. *

The power of seaweed Ascophyllum Nodosum

It is a seaweed that grows in severe cold weather and has a strong vitality. While Okinawa mozuku and wakame seaweed live only for one year, this seaweed has a long lifespan of up to 16 years. 

The polysaccharide Ascophyllan
