Lemon balm extract
Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) is a member of the mint family. The herb is grown all over the world but it is native to Europe, West Asia and North Africa. The leaves of lemon balm have a mild, fragrant, lemon aroma.

L-theanine extract from green tea
L-Theanine is a unique amino acid. In the wild it is found almost exclusively in the tea plant. It is also naturally found in some mushrooms. Many supplements on the market use a synthetically derived L-Theanine which is much cheaper than the green tea version used in fabÜ RELAX.
It possesses neuroprotective, mood enhancing and relaxation properties. It can help to relieve stress and promote sleep.
Two capsules of fabÜ R&R RELAX gives you the benefits of the equivalent L-Theanine in two strong cups of pure green tea.

Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin for the body. It contributes to the normal function of the nervous system, normal psychological function and to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Vitamin B12 is found mainly in animal products. Many people nowadays are choosing to follow vegetarian or vegan diets. Others are mindfully reducing their intake of meat products. There is an increase in Vitamin B12 deficiency as a result. Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause a wide range of issues including extreme tiredness, lethargy and brain fog.

Cordyceps (Ophiocordyceps sinensis) has been used for over a thousand years in traditional eastern medicine as a tonic. It has a host of health benefits including supporting energy and immune function. This fungus is found naturally in the Tibetan Plateau and neighbouring regions, including China, Nepal, Tibet, and India. In the wild, Cordyceps is a fungus that grows on caterpillars high in the Himalayan mountains. We cultivate our cordyceps on a vegan substrate consisting of rice and other nutrients so our product is vegan friendly.
Cordyceps are brown or bright orange in colour. They are a beautiful and unusual looking mushroom. The fruiting body of cordyceps look like long finger-like projections emerging from the substrate on which it grows.
The presence of phytochemicals (literally meaning chemical compounds produced by plants) such as beta-glucans, polysaccharides, sterols and other bioactive compounds are what give cordyceps mushrooms their unique health benefits.
Chaga mushroom (Inonotus obliquus) have been used for centuries in Siberia and other parts of Asia as a remedy to support immunity and improve overall health. Traditionally, chaga was grated into a fine powder and brewed as a herbal tea. Chaga grows mainly on the bark of birch trees in cold climates, such as Northern Europe, Siberia, Russia, Korea, Northern Canada and Alaska. Chaga produces a woody growth, or conk, which looks similar to a clump of burnt charcoal. The inside has a soft core with a bright orange colour.
The presence of phytochemicals ( literally meaning chemical compounds produced by plants) such as beta-glucans, polysaccharides, sterols and other bioactive compounds are what give chaga mushrooms their unique health benefits.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid has a host of health benefits. Vitamin C is a critical micronutrient. It contributes to your immune defence system by supporting multiple cellular functions of your body's adaptive immune systems. It is an antioxidant so it can also fight free radicals in the body, thereby decreasing inflammation and supporting immunity.
Vitamin C is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. As well as supporting the immune system it is involved in many body functions, including wound healing, the formation of collagen absorption of iron, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.
fabÜ SHROOMS IMMUNE gives you 500mg of Vitamin C daily.
Vitamin D has many important roles within the body. It supports healthy immune system and is essential for the health of our bones, teeth, muscle and cartilage.
The body produces Vitamin D upon exposure to sunlight. It is well documented that populations in the northern hemisphere are deficient in Vitamin D as they do not get enough sunlight, particularly in the autumn and winter months. The use of sunscreens and sunblocks (which are excellent for protecting the skin from the sun’s harmful ageing and cancer-causing UVA and UVB rays) further reduce the body’s ability to make Vitamin D. This is why supplementation with Vitamin D is so important.
fabÜ SHROOMS IMMUNE gives you 1000iu of Vitamin D daily.
Copper is an essential mineral. It contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system and the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in the body, which can lead to cell and tissue damage. The body’s natural immune response can trigger oxidative stress temporarily. This type of oxidative stress causes mild inflammation that goes away after the immune system fights off an infection or repairs an injury. Uncontrolled oxidative stress can accelerate the aging process and may contribute the development of a number of conditions.
fabÜ SHROOMS IMMUNE gives you 1mg of copper daily.
Zinc is a mineral that is found in cells throughout the body. It is a cofactor which is necessary for hundreds of biological reactions within the body.
Zinc plays an essential role in ensuring the normal function of the immune system. It is also important for energy metabolism, wound healing, DNA synthesis and the maintenance of normal vision. It contributes to skin, hair and nail health too, so is essential for the health of your body from top to toe!
fabÜ SHROOMS IMMUNE gives you 10mg of zinc daily.
Food sources of zinc include nuts, red meat and fortified breakfast cereals.
