Medicinal mushroom supplements are considered part of the nutraceutical market. They are not just natural remedies and not just pharma, they are a combination of the two that is backed by medical research. There are many types of mushrooms out there (over 250 actually) and each one looks different, tastes different and has different therapeutic properties. The one we are most interested in is called Cordyceps, followed closely by Reishi and Chaga. That’s because these mushrooms have the most therapeutic effect on blood flow, sexual health, immune defense, energy, longevity and detoxification.
Now, let’s talk about the amazing affects that medicinal mushroom supplements can have on your health. There seems to be no end to the health benefits of specific types of mushrooms. The most popular therapeutic mushrooms are called Coriolus versicolor (Turkey Tails), Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi), Polyporus umbellatus (Zhu Ling), Hericium erinaceus (Lion’s Mane), Lentinula Edodes (Shiitake), Grifola Frondosa (Maitake), Inonotus obliquus (Chaga) and Cordyceps sinensis (Cordyceps). Each of these types of mushrooms have slightly different therapeutic and health benefits.
More and more medical research is being done into the health benefits of using medicinal mushroom dietary supplements so if you are looking for a natural-like alternative to improve your quality of life then these could be a winner for you.
