SuperShroom

Experience the power of mushrooms with SuperShroom from Glaxon!

We told you that Glaxon would be the brand to watch in 2020, and they’re proving that with each product launch. So far some of their best sellers have been Specimen, a high-powered pre workout, Sedative, a lights-out sleep aid, and Super Greens, a greens powder that boosts health and performance. And just last month Glaxon released one of the best non-stim thermogenics we’ve seen yet, Thermal, which featured a cutting-edge ingredient in fat burning called MitoBurn from NNB Nutrition.

Glaxon has been getting several rave reviews and people are almost always caught off guard by how effective their products are. We constantly warn our followers and readers about Glaxon’s formulas being stronger than they look, however people don’t realize that until they actually give them a fair try.

There are several ingredients in Glaxon’s products that do very powerful things on their own, and we argue they could even be stand alone supplements. With this one, the Goons decided to do just that.

SuperShroom: Glaxon’s First “Stand-Alone” Product

Glaxon has been making big strides over the past couple months to get their products in more people’s hands so they can better understand the method behind the formulations, proprietary blends, and ingredient selections. One of the ways they’re achieving this goal is by offering samples, which is fairly impressive since it can be quite costly, especially for a smaller brand.

Improve Health, Immune Status, and Recovery

In addition to that, Glaxon also just announced the release of their first stand-alone product, SuperShroom. If you’ve checked out our Super Greens blog post, then this name may sound familiar, because it’s one of the primary ingredients in that formula.

Glaxon SuperShroom

Get your daily dose of fungi for multiple benefits!

SuperShroom can technically be classified as one ingredient, however it actually features a blend of seven different types of mushrooms for maximal health, recovery, and immune boosting benefits. You may not think mushrooms are “super”, but believe us, SuperShroom will help you level up just like Mario and Luigi.

Glaxon knows exactly what it takes to formulate an extremely effective product, but they want you to understand the method behind their madness. That’s where the Supplement Lab YouTube channel and PricePlow come in to further educate you on what makes these formulas work on a physiological level. Glaxon prides themselves on offering supplements made with science, and we’re here to help explain that.

In this post, you’ll get a lesson covering all the benefits SuperShroomhas to offer, the appropriate way to take it in order to get the best results, and what makes them so super.

SuperShroom Ingredients

Like we mentioned, there’s really only one ingredient to analyze in SuperShroom, but it’s seven different components really make it shine. This will be a great addition to your daily supplement stack and a more affordable option then a complete formula. Glaxon is doing everything they can to give you more options, and SuperShroom is a great start!

Brief Overview of SuperShroom

Here’s a quick overview of what SuperShroom is:

SuperShroom Ingredients

Seven mushrooms for maximal benefits.

SuperShroom is a blend of seven mushroom strains: Maitake (Grifola frondosa), Cordyceps Militaris, Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum), King Trumpet (Pleurotus eryngii), Shiitake (Lentinula edodes), Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus), and Turkey Tail (Trametes versicolor), which are all 100% organically grown in the U.S.[1] This blend also uses a combination of both the fruiting body (portion that grows above ground) and mycelium (the roots underground) for added benefits.[1]

Mushrooms may sound simple, but they’re actually incredibly complex and researchers don’t fully understand how they operate. Mushrooms are technically classified as fungi, which have been living on this earth much longer than you or I. Even though there is still plenty to learn, research does point out some profound benefits from consuming an adequate amount of mushrooms for an extended period of time.

Consistency is Key with SuperShroom

Sure you may be getting enough fruits and veggies per day, but what about fungi? You might be missing out on some major health and performance gains by not consuming adequate amounts of fungi on a daily basis. Well, Glaxon gives you two options to fix that problem, either take SuperGreens, or if you want to save some money and just add the shrooms to your stack, SuperShroom will deliver!

This is one of the main reasons Glaxon made SuperShroom a stand alone product, because just like creatine or beta-alanine, daily consumption yields the best results. Therefore, Glaxon recommends taking 2-4 capsules per day for optimal benefits. It doesn’t really matter when you take it, just as long as you’re consistent!

Now that you know a bit about SuperShroom, let’s see what this nutrient powerhouse can do on a physiological level.

The Benefits of SuperShroom: What To Expect

Although each mushroom individually has its own unique effects, we’re mostly going to focus on what they do as a whole. There are a multitude of benefits from mushroom consumption, and we know most Goons don’t eat enough on a daily basis to see any kind of significant effects. That’s where supplementation fits into this puzzle.

Mushrooms have been shown to have various health boosting properties, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-hypertensive, anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-cancer, anti-diabetic, anti-obesity, liver protection, and cholesterol-lowering effects.[1] Mushrooms are very complex, but we’re going to simplify things by focusing on the main benefits you can expect to receive from SuperShroom. So let’s get right to it!

  • Improved Gut Health

    Mushrooms contain a wide variety of carbohydrates, such as beta and alpha glucans, mannans, xylans, galatians, chitin, and hemicellulose.[2] Because of this unique feature, mushrooms can act as a prebiotic fiber within the digestive tract. As a result, there’s an increase in the growth of gut microbiota.[2] Enhancing the amount and diversity of microbiota within your digestive system can lead to several beneficial effects.

    You can also find SuperShroom in SuperGreens!

    It’s highly likely that you’ve heard of both prebiotics and probiotics, but do you understand the difference between the two? Prebiotics are specific forms of fiber that can feed the good bacteria in your gut, whereas probiotics are live bacteria that are found in several fermented foods. Both play an important role in overall gut health, but just understand that they result in different effects when ingested.

    Studies show acting as a prebiotic fiber is one of the reasons why mushrooms have anti-cancer, anti-diabetic, and anti-obesity properties.[2] Because microbiota take on multiple key roles that keep you healthy, including the breakdown of various nutrients for increased absorption, immunomodulation, and drug metabolism.[2] Therefore, if you’re not feeding your good bacteria with enough fuel (prebiotic fiber), then you’re more likely to have less optimal gut health, which can lead to some major problems later on.

    Furthermore, by acting as a prebiotic, mushrooms can help reduce endogenous pathogens that may enter the gastrointestinal tract,[2,3] which allows for enhanced functioning of the immune system. This is a very interesting effect, and we’ll dive deeper into mushrooms’ immune boosting benefits in the next section!

    But just know that a healthier gut is definitely linked to a stronger immune system!

  • Stronger Immune System

    There are several natural herbs, plants, and fungi that are touted for their immune boosting effects. Essentially, they help your internal defense mechanisms work more efficiently, leading to a decreased risk of getting sick, or if you’re already sick, they may reduce the duration and severity of your symptoms. Your immune system is a very complex network consisting of a wide variety of specialized cells, organelles, and biological processes that all are designed to defend against foregin pathogens. The two main divisions of the immune system are the innate (nonspecific) and adaptive (specific) immune systems.[4,5]

    • Innate vs Adaptive Immune System

      The innate immune system serves as your first line of defense and is typically able to eliminate or prevent entry of foreign viruses or bacteria through various mechanisms. The innate immune system comprises physical and anatomical barriers (skin, intestinal lining), and the following effector cells: natural killer (NK) cells, phagocytes. macrophages, monocytes, and neutrophils.[4] The barriers work to keep out any exogenous pathogens from entering the body in the first place. But if those fail, the effector cells will get to work by tracking down the invader and destroying it.

      Glaxon SuperShroom Stack

      You can easily add SuperShroom to your daily supplement stack.

      If the innate immune system isn’t strong enough to take care of the pathogen, then that’s where the body recruits the adaptive immune system to step in. Think of your adaptive immune system as a secret weapon, you only use it when all else fails.

      The adaptive immune system mainly consists of T and B lymphocytes, which not only help kill the existing bacteria or virus, but also produce antibodies that prepare your body for future exposure to the same pathogen.[5] In general, this is how you build up immunity, and is one of the main reasons why vaccines are so effective. Your body gets exposed to an “inactive” form of a specific virus and it produces antibodies to make sure it’s prepared for future attacks.

    • Mushrooms’ Effects On The Immune System

      At this point, you’re probably wondering what does SuperShroom have to do with all this?

      Well, research shows because mushrooms are rich in beta-glucans, they have the ability to activate various pathways of the immune system,[6-8] leading to increased recognition and phagocytosis of foreign bacteria and viruses, as well as damaged or infected cells.

    • Synergy between Maitake and Shiitake Mushrooms

      Glaxon Goon City LogoA study done in 2014 found that oral supplementation of Maitake and Shiitake mushrooms, both of which are present in SuperShroom, significantly stimulated multiple effector cells of the innate immune system after just two weeks.[7] They also found that the combination of the two was more powerful than either on their own, suggesting there’s a synergistic effect.

    • Turkey Tail provides polysaccharides

      Another study showed that polysaccharides extracted from the fruiting bodies of Turkey Tail mushrooms led to the activation of macrophages,[8] which play a key role in getting rid of foreign invaders through phagocytosis (engulfment). And as we mentioned in the previous section, mushrooms have the ability to positively affect the gut,[2,3] further strengthening several aspects of the immune response.

      Improved gut health and immune system response are not the only things mushrooms are capable of, they also can enhance performance and recovery!

  • Enhanced Recovery

    We have to start off by saying that Joey Savage, the main formulator and borderline crazy scientist at Glaxon, still questions the ability of mushrooms to enhance recovery. However, with their mechanism of action on the immune system, it seems very possible.

    Glaxon SuperGreens Orchard Ice Tea Close Up

    SuperShroom puts the ‘super’ in SuperGreens.

    That’s why we’re still going to cover it here, because as more research comes out, we will be better able to understand exactly how much they impact recovery. The majority of things we will discuss in this section goes back to the mushroom’s ability to activate the immune system, because several of the cells involved in fighting against pathogens are also recruited to repair damaged muscle fibers. And as you’ll see there is a close connection between the two.

    When you go to the gym and do bicep curls until you can’t move your arms, on a physiological level, you’re creating tiny micro tears within the muscle, and this results in an inflammatory response. Inflammation can be good or bad depending on the context of the situation: if you have significant swelling, pain, and redness after rolling your ankle, you can blame this discomfort on inflammation. But if you feel sore after maxing out on squats, that’s also inflammation.

    In both scenarios, your body is trying to heal from some sort of damage. It achieves this by recruiting a wide variety of cells that are also connected to the immune system, to come clean up the debris and start the repair process. This primarily includes cells capable of phagocytosis, such as neutrophils and macrophages. The neutrophils are first to arrive on the scene, followed closely behind by macrophages. This dynamic duo works to clean up the damaged tissue, ultimately allowing the body to start the repair process.

    Again, what does this have to do with fungi? Well as we mentioned in the immune section, mushrooms have immunostimulatory properties, leading to increased phagocytic cell activity.[6-8] If the neutrophils and macrophages can be activated quicker and more efficiently, then the body can start healing much faster.

    Long story short: Due to mushroom’s mechanism of action, it makes sense that they can lead to enhanced recovery, but we would of course like to see more research before making any definite claims.

Hit Your Daily Dose of Fungi With SuperShroom!

Fungi are very underrated and should be considered as their own food group. Mushrooms have been living on earth much longer than humans, and even with all the advancements in technology and research, we still don’t fully understand everything that they’re capable of. We’re excited to see more research conducted determining the effect of mushroom consumption on health and performance.

Glaxon SuperShroom Front

SuperShroom supercharges your health and performance!

These incredible fungi very well may be the next big thing in the sports supplement industry. We’re already starting to see them catch on in various products and don’t be surprised if more companies utilize them in the future. But as we mentioned, long term use seems to provide the most benefits, so if you give mushrooms a try at least use them daily for 4-6 weeks, before determining if they’re for you or not. Getting enough fungi in on a daily basis on top of fruits and veggies can be a difficult task from diet alone. Luckily, Glaxon has you covered with SuperShroom, and if you want an extra health boost, we highly recommend SuperGreens.

Glaxon is always looking for ways to expand their line of products, and we think this is a great start. Ever since Glaxon launched, they’ve been on a roll with new product and flavor releases, and who knows what Glaxon will release next. But we have a feeling you’re not going to want to miss out on all they have in store for the future. PricePlow will be here to make sure you stay up to date on any news, deals, reviews, or interviews from Glaxon and all you have to do is subscribe down below!
