Frequently Asked Questions

What is I'm-Yunity®?

I’m-Yunity® is a premier, well-researched natural herbal supplement extracted from a traditional medicinal mushroom, Coriolus versicolor, which has scientifically and clinically proven its major role in supporting the immune system while maintaining general fitness. Coriolus versicolor is also known as Yunzhi in China, where it has long been considered a special natural health supplement. It was first recorded by a renowned TCM practitioner, Li Shizhen, in the Compendium of Materia Medica during the 15th century. Ancient practitioners understood centuries ago that Yunzhi is good for maintaining general health and preserving the normal aging process if taken appropriately.

What is Polysaccharopeptide (PSP)?

PSP, the abbreviation of “PolySaccharoPeptide”, is the standardized ingredient of I’m-Yunity® and can only be extracted from the Coriolus versicolor mushroom. Over the past 20 years, extensive research including clinical trials has been conducted on identifying the active ingredient groups of PSP and elucidating its immune health benefits in the body.

How is I'm-Yunity® different from other mushroom products?

I’m-Yunity® extract effectively delivers the standardized ingredient polysaccharopeptide (PSP) which can only be isolated from the Coriolus versicolor mushroom. This extract supports immune health and helps maintain healthy white blood cell counts. It enhances the quality of life by maintaining good energy levels and appetite. Unlike other mushroom products, I’m-Yunity® is a pure, premium herbal supplement for immune system health.

Who should take I'm-Yunity®?

Everybody can take I’m-Yunity® on a regular basis to maintain healthy immunity. Dosage varies according to each individual’s constitution.

What is recommended dosage of I'm-Yunity®?

For healthy individuals, start at one capsule three times a day. Depending on your body constitution you can escalate the dose to a maximum of 3 capsules three times a day.

Can I take I'm-Yunity® even if I'm on medication?

Yes, if you are taking prescribed drugs that are metabolized on the c P450 enzyme pathway. ( Your doctor will be able to tell you if you are .). Although we have not specifically tested for other drug interactions, based on I’m-Yunity’s ® safety profile of being on the market for over 10 years with no consumer reporting a drug interaction and its long term acute and chronic toxicity tests showing no toxic effects, we feel the risk of having a drug interaction is low. However, it is always best to let your doctor know you are taking a supplement if you are on prescribed medications and be on the lookout for any potential herb/ drug interactions. It also may be a good idea to separate the time of intake of a prescribed medication with I’m-Yunity® by 2 to 3 hours.

How long until I feel a difference from I'm-Yunity®?

It usually takes 10 to 14 days or to a month or so before feeling an improvement in energy levels and appetite, depending on an individual’s particular constitution.

How long should I take to get the full health benefits of I'm-Yunity®?

It depends on the individual’s health problem. It may vary from 3 days to one month or even 2 to 3 months. Dosage and lifestyle have also to be taken into consideration.

Who should be cautious when taking I'm-Yunity®?

Those who have autoimmune diseases and those who have undergone an organ transplant. Because I’m-Yunity® is meant to maintain a healthy immune system, it may not be wise to take this product if you are taking prescription medicines that will suppress your immune function. Although we feel this product is likely to be safe for pregnant women, we have not done any formal testing for this and therefore want to play it cautious. Some individuals may have an allergic reaction to mushrooms and since I’m-Yunity® is a mushroom extract it may not be a good idea to take this product.

Is I'm-Yunity® suitable for children?

Yes, but the dosage has to be smaller. It varies according to the age range and the health condition of the child concerned.

What role does I'm-Yunity® play to the immune system?

We all have an inborn immune system which eradicates foreign bodies such as pathogens, and keeps surveillance on abnormal cells. It is important to keep the immune system healthy and working properly. Unfortunately, our immune system may be weakened and eventually this may cause harm to our bodies and lead to serious health problems. I’m-Yunity® possesses immune supporting benefits and potentially enhances our immune surveillance in weak immune systems. Studies have shown that PSP boosts the activity of natural killer cells, simulates the production of interleukin-2 and increases the ratio of helper T cells (CD4+) to cytotoxic T cells (CD8+). In addition, it can induce the secretion of cytokines such as an increase in ? and ? interferon. A recent phase II double-blind, placebo-controlled and randomized clinical trial reported that PSP had significant improvement in white blood cell and neutrophil counts, serum immunoglobin G and immunoglobin M.

Can I’m-Yunity® be used in cats or animals other than dogs?

Currently, I’m-Yunity® has only been evaluated for safety and efficacy in dogs. Animal species other than dogs may react differently to this product and we cannot guarantee its safety and efficacy in all animal species. If there is not a medical reason why your animal cannot have a mushroom extract then the product would be considered reasonable to try for immune supplementation. We recommend discussing the use of this product in any animal other than a dog with your veterinarian prior to use.
