Medicinal mushrooms

Medicinal mushrooms are unmatched in their ability to build immunity and adaptability within the body and are among the worlds most prized tonic herbs used in Traditional Islamic and Chinese medicine for over 4,000 years.

Medicinal mushrooms are full of polysaccharides especially beta glucans, polysaaaharopeptides and polysaccharide protein as well as other bioactive substances like triterpenes, lipids and phenols that induce cell division also known as mitosis and activate the cells that comprise the immune system.

Medicinal mushrooms are lauded for their capacity to bring the human body back into a state of equilibrium also called homeostasis and strengthen the immune and hormonal functions.

I use every single mushroom out there possible as my natures vitamin d getting the sun to synthesise. But the main ones I use daily are reishi, poria, chaga, cordyceps as they are the great protectors of the body strengthening the vital energy (Qi) of the body that keeps out invasive and pathogenic forces.

The beautiful thing about the mushroom powders I use is that the medicinal properties are not destroyed by heat or cold so I have a teaspoon of each one daily in hot water. This counts towards my daily water intake too.
