Defend Puts In The Work For Your Immune System

This time of the year, there is a lot on our to-do lists. On top of our normal work deadlines and household chores, we are feeling the pressure to prepare for both the winter months and the fast-approaching holiday season. With so many things to do, prioritizing immune support can feel daunting and overwhelming. 

Here at New Earth, we understand that, which is why we created Defend—our responsive immune support supplement. This powerful supplement contains all-natural superfood ingredients that work together to give your immune system the support it needs no matter what time of the year it is.* 

Defend’s Powerful Formula

What exactly does Defend contain? We’re glad you asked! 

Superfood Mushrooms 
Certain species of mushrooms have been renowned for their medicinal properties for centuries, especially in Eastern cultures. Today, these species have been dubbed superfood mushrooms because of their high nutrient value and the impressive ways they can benefit your health. In addition to supporting a healthy brain, digestive system, and cardiovascular system, these medicinal mushrooms contain a number of immune-supporting compounds.   

For example, mushrooms are one of the few plant sources of vitamin D, which is one of the most important vitamins when it comes to immune health. Medicinal mushrooms also contain triterpenoid compounds, which are also known as immunomodulator compounds because they play a role in activating your body’s immune response. Last, but certainly not least, medicinal mushrooms also have beneficial polysaccharides like beta-glucan, which we will explore more about in a minute. 

Defend is made with the following 6 medicinal mushrooms, which have all been extensively researched for their ability to support the immune system.

  • Shiitake Mushrooms are rich in glycoproteins, vitamins, and ergosterol as well as beta-glucans and vital nutrients for overall health. 
  • Turkey Tail Murhsooms contain specific compounds known as polysaccharopeptide (PSP) and polysaccharide-K (PSK) that have shown promise for a variety of health purposes, including supporting both the gut microbiome and the immune system.
  • Reishi Mushrooms are the most extensively researched species and have been found to contain over 130 triterpenoid compounds as well as beta-glucan and other polysaccharides.
  • Maitake Mushrooms are well-known in the gourmet culinary circles for being a food that not only tastes great but also has an impressive nutritional profile. They are particularly rich in immune-modulating plant sterols like ergosterol, phospholipids, fatty acids, and polysaccharides. 
  • Cordyceps have been used in history for their medicinal value and contain nutrients like proteins, polysaccharides, and antioxidants. 
  • Agaricus Blazei has been gaining popularity for its ability to support the immune system because of its high concentration of health-promoting nutrients.  

Beta-glucan is a non-starch polysaccharide, which simply means it is a type of sugar that occurs naturally in the cell wall of certain organisms like fungi and bacteria. As we mentioned earlier, beta-glucan is beneficial for your whole body, especially your immune system. This is because beta-glucan has the ability to stimulate your body’s natural immune response by activating the cells that help identify and eliminate pathogens within your body.

Not only does Defend contain the beta-glucan naturally found in the medicinal mushrooms that are at the core of its formula, but it also contains an extra dose of this beneficial polysaccharide. The extra beta-glucan in Defend has been derived from natural sources such as oats, barley, and red rice.  


This herb, which is prized for its roots, has been held in high esteem in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Today, astragalus is commonly used in Western herbal medicine as well because of its ability to help modulate the immune system, thanks to the presence of compounds like saponins, polysaccharides, and flavonoids. Research has also found that the polysaccharides in astragalus may help improve the composition of the gut microbiome, which can lead to improved immune health.
