Mushrooms and their medicinal qualities!


According to Natural News, medicinal mushrooms build your immunity to common colds, the flu, disease, viruses, bacteria and much more. One of the world’s leading authorities on nutrition, David Wolfe, recommends buying mushroom complexes that contain at least five of the following: Reishi, Cordyceps, Astragalus, Maitake, Shiitake, Lion’s Mane and Oyster.

There are certain mushrooms that we never see on grocery shelves or even at the farmer’s market, but they are for sale in powdered form at just about every local health food store you can find, and they’re not expensive at all. Japan and China have known about the benefits of mushrooms that grow on trees for thousands of years, especially the Reishi mushroom. Reishi, commonly known as Ling Zhi in Chinese, is the oldest herbal mushroom known to have been used as a medicine. The emperors in ancient times ate them like we eat lettuce and cucumbers.

Possessing over 400 active biomolecules, Reishi mushroom is a superior herb that can be taken for long durations without any side effects of any kind. Unlike the poisonous mushrooms that grow out of the ground in your yard, medicinal mushrooms grow off of bark, absorbing all the nutrients from the trees. By simply buying the mushrooms in powder form, or in pill form and opening the capsules and mixing them into your favorite smoothie or veggie drinks, or even in your tea, you are promoting healthy blood circulation, digestion, bowel regularity and fatigue reduction.

In case you were wondering, the common grocery store button mushroom, Agaricus bisporus, isn’t so special and can often carry mold under the cap that is not visible to the naked eye. Portabello mushrooms and Crimini are nothing more than matured stages, or brown strains, of the button mushroom.
