Why is Immune Health Important to Your Dog?
According to the U.S. National Canine Cancer Foundation, “one out of every three dogs will get cancer,” it is likely that your dog will have cancer sometime in life. The good news is about half of the cancer types are treatable, if diagnosed early and treated by update treatment programs.
Just like human, the immune system of dog is the key in preventing and combating cancer. Scientists have recognized three primarily protective roles for the immune system in cancer control:
- Eliminating or suppressing viral infections to protect against virus-induced cancers;
- Timely elimination of pathogens and prompt resolution of inflammation to prevent the establishment of an inflammatory environment for cancer growing;
- Immune surveillance, a process to identify and destroy deformed body cells before they become malignancy.
If the immune system of your dog is dysfunction, unable to arrest the deformed body cells to reproduce where possible, a progressively growing cancer will result. Improper immune function also leads to a host of other problems, such as infection, slower healing, organ dysfunction, tissue degeneration, and even early aging.
When your dog’s body functions well and has good immunity, it is easy to keep disease and injury minimal with faster healing and a prolong life as well.
Immunotherapy is a type of cancer treatment designed to boost the body’s natural defenses to fight against cancer, which becomes increasingly important to clinical oncology today. The treatments are provided for different purposes; some boost the overall immune functioning, others help train the immune components to attack cancer cells specifically. Newer types of immunotherapy are coming too, which will definitely change how cancer is treated in the future.
Certain mushrooms such as corioulus versicolor in particular have been found to contain compounds with powerful immune modulation effects. Their protein-bound polysaccharides have positive activities on anti-cancer and immune cell response. In China, medicinal mushrooms have long been used for a wide range of health problems, especially for enhancing and rebuilding the body after major or long-term illnesses.
Our product I’m-Yunity® is made from a proprietary extract of corioulus versicolor, provided by the inventor exclusively, and backup with over 20 years of scientific researches. All the researches about I’m-Yunity® were performed by independent academic institutions in the U.S., Hong Kong and China.
We continued our study in a well-known veterinary research centre in the U.S. A larger scale study has conducted to make sure the pilot results are repeatable with I’m-Yunity® and there is direct benefit from Chinese medicine herbal products.
We value quality research and want to help people better understand about the products they choose to use.
Needed: Dogs Diagnosed with Splenic Hemangiosarcoma
Integrated Chinese Medicine Holdings Ltd. is sponsoring a study at the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania entitled:
Effects of I’m-Yunity vs Standard of Care Chemotherapy (Doxorubicin) Alone or in Combination with I’m-Yunity in Dogs with Splenic Hemangiosarcoma
The study objective:
To assess and compare the efficacy and side effects associated with the administration of I’m-Yunity, doxorubicin, or both in combination to positively impact the lifespan and quality of life in dogs diagnosed with splenic hemangiosarcoma.
To be included in this study the following criteria must be met:
- Your dog must have confirmation of the diagnosis of splenic hemangiosarcoma by biopsy following splenectomy.
- At least 14 days must have passed since the day of surgery.
- Your dog must be stable and not likely to require euthanasia within 4 weeks of starting the study as determined by the investigators.
- You must be able to administer oral medication (multiple pills and capsules) to your dog.
- You must be at least 18 years of age and be able to understand the study requirements.
- You must be able to take your dog to the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania located in Philadelphia for all study visits.

Coriolus versicolor, also known as Yunzhi, is a precious tonic that belongs to a family of medicinal mushrooms in the Chinese culture. Early in 15th century of China, the famous Compendium of Materia Medica categorized it a supreme herb with health benefits like replenishing essence and qi (vital energy), strengthening tendons and bones, promoting general enhancement and anti-aging. The gentle and invigorating properties of Coriolus versicolor are very suitable to consume regularly for long-term health.
I’m-Yunity® for Dogs is made from a unique proprietary ingredient extracted from Coriolus versicolor, specially for immune balance and vitality of dogs.
Selected herbal source
I’m-Yunity® for Dogs is made from COV-1® strain of Coriolus versicolor. This unique strain was successfully identified and isolated as the optimal strain of Coriolus versicolor among 80 strains collected in China by a reputed fungus expert, Professor Yang Qingyao. He specially cultivated the strain using deep layer cultivation technology with submerged fermentation to provide mycelia as the raw material for our I’m-Yunity® production.
PSP – effective ingredient of Coriolus versicolor
Coriolus versicolor contains bioactive compounds called polysaccharides, which are complex molecules built from many units of sugar. Variation in the compounds occurs if abstracted different parts of the mushroom. Prof. Yang isolated polysaccharide peptide (PSP), a special kind of protein-bound polysaccharides, from the mycelia of COV-1® strain of Coriolus versicolor. Pharmacological and clinical studies have showed that PSP has positive immune modulation effects, and helps improve quality of life.*
Technological breakthrough in PSP extraction
Professor Yang also made a technological breakthrough in the structural elucidation of PSP, that specific types of PSP molecules are isolated from the mycelia of COV-1® strain of Coriolus versicolor. The complex process of insolating effective PSP molecules is one reason why not all products containing PSP may have similar health benefits.
Validated by long-time study and application in human
When PSP first released in the early 80’s, it immediately caught the attention of researchers and customers. Long-time studies along with numerous customer testimonials provided collective evidences that PSP supports immune health, promotes general fitness and improves quality of life. Essence of Mushroom (the Hong Kong packaging of I’m-Yunity®) has been marketed in Hong Kong over 40 years, and registered as a Chinese Proprietary Medicine as well. I’m-Yunity® has also been registered as supplement to sell in Canada, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand markets.
I’m-Yunity® for Dogs is natural and safe
Unlike other mushroom products, we use exclusively the PSP from the mycelia of COV-1® strain of Coriolus versicolor for the production of I’m-Yunity® for Dogs. It is a pure and single-species herbal supplement that doesn’t rely on other additional ingredients to exert its multiple health benefits. The product is manufactured in the factory with GMP (good manufacturing practices) standard, which further ensures its quality and purity, making your pet getting the most potent PSP active ingredient.
Better quality of life for your beloved pet

If your pet has a mushroom allergy then I’m-Yunity® may not be right for your pet too.
A: Currently, I’m-Yunity® has only been evaluated for safety and efficacy in dogs. Animal species other than dogs may react differently to I’m-Yunity®, so we cannot guarantee its safety and efficacy in all animal species.

The results suggests that the administration of I’m-Yunity® with other medications and dietary supplements, which are primarily metabolized on this pathway, is not expected to be associated with significant herb-drug interactions. If you use any of the chemo drugs that are metabolized on this pathway, chances are you have a better safety profile using concomitantly.
As this study was done in human, it is difficult to say if the results would be the same in dogs without repeating a drug interaction study. However, in animal toxicity studies yunzhi was considered safe in doses up to 18g/kg in acute toxicity testing¹ and 6g/kg in a sub chronic toxicity testing².
