The Magic of Medicinal Mushrooms
The use of medicinal mushrooms has grown hugely in the last year and there are good reasons why. The truth is that mushrooms have been used for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years and it’s only just become mainstream in western society over the past few years.
Medicinal mushrooms are lauded for their capacity to bring the human body back into a state of equilibrium – or ‘homeostasis’ and strengthen immune and hormonal functions. In the wild they are usually found growing on trees.
Medicinal mushrooms burst with polysaccharides, triterpenes, antioxidants and other health-supporting compounds. Ancient herbal systems have long worked with medicinal, or ‘functional’, mushrooms and modern research is now uncovering the outstanding health benefits of these potent mushrooms.
