Medical mushroom is a type of mushroom that has medicinal properties. To be clear, there are various types of medical mushrooms such as: white mushrooms that help with weight loss and prostate cancer, Shiitake mushrooms that fight tumors and Reishi mushrooms that have anti-cancer, anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Chanterelle mushrooms, also have anti-microbial, bacterial and fungal properties and Shimeji mushrooms fight tumors and asthma.

Mushrooms, that we eat, are tasty delights for lunch or supper; while medical mushrooms have many health benefits such as having great immunity properties. If you’re looking for healthy skin, the Tremella mushroom will do just that! The Tremella mushroom helps the body to maintain the production of hyaluronic acid, which helps to bind water and lubricates the joints and muscles of our bodies and keeps our skin firm, moist and pliable.

Health Benefits Of Mushrooms

Mushrooms also give great support to our immune systems. Some may not know it but mushrooms also give us additional energy. If a body is under too much stress day after day, our bodies produce too much cortisol. This can lead to fatigue or exhaustion. However, the mushroom, Cordyceps, can replenish the adrenals and add more energy, stamina and endurance to our bodies.

Immune and Memory Boosting Mushrooms

Beside the aforementioned health benefits of mushrooms, mushrooms also give a boost to memory and concentration.. Extracts of the Lion’s Mane mushroom may enhance brain functions such as memory and concentration and may also enhance and promote the production of Nerve Growth Factor.

Extracts from the Cordyceps and ganoderma mushroom supports our immune system and helps to lower the stress in our bodies. As many know, if our bodies sustain stress for too long, our immune systems become vulnerable and weak. If our immune system is compromised for too long, other illnesses may occur such as diabetes, heart disease and infection.
