Historical records surrounding the medicinal use of Reishi mushrooms extend over thousands of years. Traditionally in China, it was employed religiously by Taoist monks to attain a long and healthy life. Reishi is noted for its adaptogenic, immunomodulating and anti-inflammatory activity and is often prescribed for patients with autoimmune conditions, chronic bacterial and viral infections, and inflammatory disorders, for cancer prevention and as an adjunct to chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Reishi is considered to be a primary phytomedicine for immune dysregulation and fatigue due to chronic disease. 


Shiitake is one of the most used medicinal mushrooms in the Orient due to its powerful effects in reducing the risk of chronic disease development and progression, and to prevent premature ageing. Shiitake is considered a nutritive functional food and is highly regarded for its production of the beta-glucan lentinan, which is responsible for some of the mushroom’s anticancer activity and bioactive effects upon the immune system. Shiitake is an immune strengthening tonic with extensive organ-protective activity; especially indicated in cases involving chronic or recurring illness.


Maitake is prized in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a medicinal mushroom to enhance Qi, fortify the immune system and improve vitality.  Maitake was also treasured for its longevity properties and was thought to bring vigour to the body. This medicinal mushroom is a profound immunomodulating phytomedicine that helps to fortify bodily defences against disease-causing pathogens and agents and is specifically indicated in cases of cancer and cancer prevention, as well as hepatic/endocrine disturbances. 


Turkey Tail has been used as a traditional medicine for thousands of years for improving liver and spleen function, removing toxins, increasing energy and spirit and enhancing the immune response. TCM use of Turkey Tail includes the treatment of cough, asthma, bronchitis, cancer, cirrhosis, hepatitis and rheumatoid arthritis. Turkey Tail also has a long traditional use as a medicine in the treatment of cancer and illnesses related to immune deficiency. 


Cordyceps is valued as a tonic herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine and is used to treat a wide range of disorders including respiratory, kidney, liver, cardiovascular, and hyperlipidaemia, as well as being used as a tonic to promote energy, reduce fatigue, and strengthen the body after serious illness. Currently, Cordyceps is utilised as an immune and nervine adaptogen that is specific for pathogen-induced inflammation and immune dysregulation. Furthermore, Cordyceps has an affinity for the kidneys and is considered to be a renoprotective phytomedicine. It also has an affinity for the lungs where it may improve pulmonary function in conditions such as asthma and bronchitis. As a potent adaptogen, Cordyceps profoundly supports the body during chronic illness, and especially during an infection.

As a general guide, give 5 drops once or twice daily in food.

Because cats can be challenging when it comes to supplements, always start with a smaller amount than recommended and build up gradually to the full dose. This will help with taste compliance; some cats may also respond well to a lower dose than stated.


Store below 25 C in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight. Use within 12 months of opening. Keep out of reach of children.


Use with caution in dogs taking immunosuppressant and/or antiplatelet/anticoagulant medications. Professional veterinary supervision advised.

Safety in pregnancy and lactation has not been established, therefore use is not recommended unless under professional veterinary supervision.

There is a theoretical risk that Maitake may increase the risk of hypoglycaemia when combined with antidiabetic medication. Caution with this combination is advised.

There is a theoretical risk that Maitake and Cordyceps may increase the risk of hypotension when combined with antihypertensive medication. Caution with this combination is advised.

Discontinue two weeks prior to scheduled surgery.

Excellent product

I have and do use a number of CanineCeuticals products and recommend them very highly.

Good quality

I’ve been using these supplements for a while and for a few different dogs and reasons over the past couple of years. Currently using the Milk thistle and the mushroom elixir for a liver tumour and liver function and my boy is doing better. I can always rely on the quality and the dogs don’t mind the drops being added to their food so very happy.


We got the Mushroom Elixir for our 12 years old Cocker Spaniel diagnosed with cancer. Taking the elixir for a few months now has improved her life. Thank you for your great remedy.

Looks like a good product. Started my dog on it to hopefully stave off & prevent cancers as my late girl died from it. Unfortunately my boy didn’t like it at all, was added to his morning meal but he went off his food after a couple of days. Once I stopped it, he was back eating again. Such a shame.
