Shift SuperDefence

Superdefence combines a number of raw ingredients that stimulate and activate the immune system. Superdefence is made up of potent extracts from chaga, reishi, wellmune beta-glucans and elderflower. These individually help strengthen and activate the immune system. When combined, the beneficial effect is much stronger. The result is a supplement that will boost your health and strengthen your immune system.

CHAGA – ONE OF THE STRONGEST ANTIOXIDANTS IN THE WORLD

Chaga, also known as black gold, grows on birch trees in Siberia, China, North America and in Scandinavia. It is claimed that chaga is one of the world’s strongest antioxidants. Chaga has been used for centuries to boost the immune system and combat inflammation. As reishi, chaga is an adaptogen mushroom that restores the body’s different functions when these have become imbalanced. Chaga is incredibly rich in a number of active agents, including beta-glucans and polysaccharides to boost the immune system.

The different active agents in chaga have a number of excellent properties for strengthening the organism. Not only do they inhibit viruses and bacteria, they also have a stabilizing effect on blood sugar levels. The structured polysaccharides in chaga are also good for the cardiovascular system.

REISHI – THE QUEEN OF ALL MUSHROOMS

Red reishi is known as the queen of medicinal mushrooms in China and Japan, and is one of the most popular mushrooms within folk medicine in this part of the world. Reishi is an adaptogen mushroom that restores the body’s different functions when these have become imbalanced. It can revitalize, refresh or sooth, depending on what the body needs. Reishi is particularly effective in combating stress, insomnia and hormonal changes. It is also claimed that reishi can alleviate allergic reactions and inflammation, and calms the nervous system. At the same time, it is a potent antioxidant, helping to boost the immune system.

Reishi is also similar to chaga in that it has a high content of polysaccharides and beta-glucans. Reishi also contains a number of micronutrients and is therefore a wonderful source of vitamins, minerals and trace elements.

REINFORCED WITH WELLMUNE

Both chaga and reishi contain natural beta-glucans. However, in our aim to create an optimal dietary supplement, we have also included wellmune 1,3/1,6 beta-glucan. This is a patented natural immune stimulator, clinically documented in a number of studies in terms of effect. Wellmune beta,1,3/1,6 gluco polysaccharide is one of the best documented beta-glucan compounds currently available. Wellmune can also refer to a health claim permitted by the efsa and relating to its curative properties and substantial documentation. Investments in development, research and clinical trials have amounted to more than nok 2 billion for this product. Moreover, Wellmune is protected by more than 40 patents.

ELDERFLOWER, A POPULAR PLANT IN ANCIENT GREEK MEDICINE

The fourth component in superdefence is elderflower. This plant is well-known from ancient greek medicine, and later became an important ingredient in indian ayurveda traditions. The plant also has a long history within norwegian folk medicine. Elder is a bush with yellow-white flowers and black berries, growing primarily in old gardens in south and east Norway and wild along the coast all the way up to north Norway.

Elderflower is one of the natural remedies that has been subject to most research. When seeking an active ingredient made from elderflower for SuperDefence, we have chose an extract at the very top end of the market. One of the secrets behind the effectiveness of elderflower extract is that it prevents viruses from attaching to the body’s cell walls. A comprehensive study involving 300 air passengers showed that it is an excellent substance to combat infection by flu or virus.
