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. If there is not a medical reason why your animal cannot have a mushroom extract, then I’m-Yunity® would be considered reasonable to try for immune supplementation. We recommend discussing the use of I’m-Yunity® in any animal other than a dog with your veterinarian prior to use.
A: We have a study “In vivo effect of I’m-Yunity on hepatic cytochrome P450 3A4”, which investigated the ability of I’m-Yunity to inhibit or induce the drug metabolism of CYP3A4 in healthy adult human subjects. (The link to the abstract on Medline is here, if you need the full report please email us.) Some chemo drugs fall into this category. 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.

A: I’m-Yunity® is made from a unique proprietary ingredient extracted from Coriolus versicolor, which has long been recognized for its non-toxic and invigorating effects to preserve vitality. Traditionally, Chinese herbalists use it to relieve symptoms such as general weakness, fatigue, poor appetite and loose bowels. Modern herbalists use it as an immune modulator due to its strong immune promoting effects.

Our Company sources the proprietary extract from the inventor exclusively and supported mushroom research for over 20 years. The efficacy and safety of I’m-Yunity® are well researched in independent academic institutions in the U.S., Hong Kong and China.
We are also following up the study conducted in the well-known veterinary research center in the U.S. with a larger scale study 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 you choose to use.
