1. Maitake Mushrooms

Native to the mountains of east Japan, maitake mushrooms are famous for their incredible health benefits. Maitake mushrooms promote heart health as well as weight loss, and they also help fight cancer. However, the most notable characteristic of this mountain medicine is, in this case, the immunity boost. These mushrooms contain a polysaccharide fiber called beta glucan. Immune system cells such as neutrophils, T-cells, natural killer cells, and macrophages are all boosted by this substance. Hence, Maitake mushrooms allow the body to kill off the Lyme bacterium before it even spreads quickly.
