Would like to find out about this herb, have been told that it helps the immune system and helps to form more white blood cells.

Ganaderma tsugae is a fungus that grows on hemlock teas in the Carolinian Forest region. This fungus has been researched and shown to help stimulate the immune system including increasing white blood cells. It is often used in conjunction with other immune stimulants such as astragalus, ginseng and other medicinal mushrooms.
