Let’s talk about mushrooms…

The exploding ‘new’ superfood we’re seeing in documentaries and (probably) all over your news feed too aren’t actually new at all. They’ve been around for thousands of years. When they were first discovered, they were only eaten by pharaohs and nobles, but now us everyday folk consume them too!

Fantastic Fungi

Netflix created a documentary with Paul Stamets which delves into all things mushrooms. It has been well received worldwide and we highly recommend that you watch it, if you haven’t already.

Fantastic Fungi is a descriptive time-lapse journey about the magical, mysterious, and medicinal world of fungi. This documentary explains their power to heal, sustain and contribute to the regeneration of life on Earth that began 3.5 billion years ago.

What’s so great about mushrooms? Glad you asked!

Here are our top reasons you should be looking into medicinal mushrooms:

  • They have ​​Antifungal, Antiviral, and Antibacterial Properties. Many of the compounds they produce aren’t harmful to humans and act as natural antibiotics in our bodies when we consume them.
  • Their Vitamin And Mineral Content. ​Eating mushrooms is a great way to add extra nutrition to your diet and keep yourself healthy. Mushrooms are also low in calories and sodium but contain a good amount of protein.
  • They’re a source of fiber. Mushrooms contain both soluble and insoluble fiber, so they make a great addition to your diet. Fiber is essential in maintaining intestinal health and can lower the risk of colorectal cancer and other diseases.
  • They’re high in antioxidants. Mushrooms contain compounds called antioxidants that seek out free radicals and remove them from our bodies. This decreases the amount of oxidative stress in our bodies and damage done to our cells and DNA.
Now before you run out and buy yourself a bunch of mushroom-related products from your nearest grocery store… you need to do your research (or let us do it for you!)

It’s best to decide what mushrooms you should be taking based on the outcome you’re looking for. That’s where we come in! Natures Relief has a range of different mushroom tinctures to suit your specific needs. If you’re unsure we also offer free consultations with our qualified clinical homeopath who can help find the best product for your needs.

In the meantime, let’s break some of them down a little more to help you decide which one (or two!) might be best for you:

Reishi mushrooms arguably have the most medicinal uses, as well as the longest history of use. Reishi is best known to help your body handle stress by regulating your cortisol levels within the body. They also work well within the body as an immuno-enhancer with their antioxidant properties.

– Lion’s mane is used as a nootropic to give you a boost in mental performance and focus. It’s been used by Asian cultures for centuries as both food and medicine and is now a favorite in the optimizer community. It’s also gained attention in the scientific community for its potential in preventing memory impairment.

– Chaga is used to help fight inflammation and boost immune response. They also contain many antioxidants that may reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL), the so-called “bad” cholesterol, and its effectiveness in fighting other forms of oxidative stress suggests that it could also fight aging.

– Cordyceps is used for physical stamina and has properties to assist with heart health and Type 2 Diabetes. Some people use cordyceps as a stimulant, a tonic, and an “adaptogen,” which is used to increase energy and reduce fatigue.

– Turkey Tail is the most researched functional mushroom on the planet. It’s been shown to support immune function, improve gut health, and manage the inflammatory response. Turkey Tail has been used to combat tumor growth and support cancer recovery while offering immune benefits to everyone.
