Garlic Plus with Reishi Mushroom Extract from Webber Naturals is an ideal herbal medicine formula for anyone seeking a natural way to support their cardiovascular and immune systems. Garlic is used in herbal medicine to maintain cardiovascular health and help reduce elevated blood lipid levels in adults (1). Preliminary clinical research supports the use of time released garlic powder by people with elevated blood cholesterol (2). Garlic has also been traditionally used in herbal medicine to help relieve symptoms associated with upper respiratory tract infections and catarrhal conditions (3). Reishi is a source of antioxidants and fungal polysaccharides with immunomodulating properties. It is used in herbal medicine as a liver tonic, to support the immune system, and as an adaptogen to help increase energy and resistance to stress, particularly when stress is caused by mental and physical fatigue (4,5).Features and Benefits :Contains 10:1 garlic concentrateEquals approximately 6000 mg or 9 cloves of raw garlic per 2 capsulesContains 30:1 organic reishi extractDelayed-release vegetarian capsulesSuitable for vegetarians and/or vegansNo glutenSugar freeNon GMONo dairy, starch, wheat, yeast, soy, egg, fish, shellfish, salt, tree nuts, artificial colours, preservatives, and sweetenersContains organic reishiFormulated and packaged in CanadaDelayed-release capsules allow the contents to pass through the stomach into the small intestine.
