The health benefits of medicinal mushrooms

Updated: Apr 11

Antioxidant* Chaga is unique among medicinal mushrooms in that it is a powerful antioxidant and has potent immune-stimulating properties. The Mushroom Science Chaga extract was tested for its antioxidant properties by Brunswick Labs, which found that Mushroom Science Chaga extract was rated higher than green or black tea extracts and was similar to that of blueberry extracts.


Healthy Skin* Tremella mushrooms have been shown to improve the health and complexion of the skin by helping the body maintain the production of hyaluronic acid, which, among other things, helps keep the skin pliable, firm and moist from within. Tremella is believed to support the body’s ability to maintain the production of hyaluronic acid without the drop off in production that normally comes with aging.


Immune Support*

Mushrooms defined as “medicinal” are those that contain immune-activating beta-glucans (heart-healthy fibers) and other polysaccharides (carbohydrate molecules) within their indigestible cell walls. When properly extracted with hot water, these polysaccharides are used in supplemental form to maintain, protect and support immune health. All of our mushroom extracts can be used for immune support.

Increased Energy & Cordyceps Extracts Cortisol is an important hormone in the body and is involved in many important bodily functions. However, continued excessive levels of cortisol in the system can cause adrenal fatigue or depletion, causing low energy levels, adrenal exhaustion and poor sleep. Cordyceps extracts - a type of fungus that typically grows on caterpillars - can break this cycle by replenishing the adrenals and balancing cortisol levels, leading to increased energy, stamina and endurance.

Liver Health* Reishi mushrooms - In addition to immuno-modulating beta glucans Reishi also contains active compounds called triterpenes. The triterpenes specific to Reishi are called ganoderic acids. Triterpenes can improve liver function by helping the liver to clear out accumulated toxins. This is especially important for those people that may have impaired liver function. In addition to the beta-glucans Shiitake contains various enzymes that may improve liver function. Both Reishi and Shiitake are considered to be “tonics” for the liver in Traditional East Asian Medicine.
