Medicinal mushrooms have inspired me with their power to heal ever since they came into my focus these past years. As I studied them and now use them, I am continually amazed at their proficiency in healing my personal needs as well as my family’s colds and flus. They have been used successfully on animals and are truly powerful on multiple levels.
Cultures globally have used medicinal mushrooms for centuries with tremendous success. In our western pharmaceutical history, penicillin is one of our “greatest” achievements and it is essentially a fungus or a mushroom. But these medicinal mushrooms do not wipe out our good bacteria like antibiotics; they work gently and efficiently by greatly enhancing the immune system.
With 17 types of medicinal mushrooms, this blend covers all the bases. I have an affinity for Reishi mushrooms as well as Chaga mushrooms, which are in this formula. Here is a brief overview of these two magical mushrooms.
Chaga is unique among medicinal mushrooms and may be one of the most important anti-aging supplements yet discovered. Like all medicinal mushrooms, Chaga has polysaccharides that give potent immune supporting properties but Chaga also contains extremely high ORAC values (antioxidant properties).
Chaga contains one of the highest amounts of anti-tumor compounds of any of the medicinal mushrooms known.
Chaga is also high in vital phytochemicals, nutrients, and free-radical scavenging antioxidants, especially melanin. Melanin is the same compound, which is the main pigment in human skin, the retina of the eye, and the pigment-bearing neurons within the brain stem.
For over 2,000 years, the Reishi mushroom has been the most revered herbal mushroom in Asia. Reishi consumption is known for cultivating radiant health and extreme longevity.
Reishi possesses anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and antioxidant properties.
Reishi is also an excellent anti-stress herb. When we are holding stress and tension both physically and mentally, we are compromising our immune system. Our body’s ability to fight illness is significantly weakened.
