One of our most prized blends! We use many of the most medicinal mushrooms you may find! We incorporate Cordyceps and Reishi. The responsibly, organic mushrooms that we dry and grind down ourselves are the Maitake, Shitake, and Oyster mushrooms. Lastly, we use one of the rarest mushrooms in the world that we wildcraft called Bondarzewia! It is so rare that you will find little information on it and we believe that we may be the only ones in the world that even offer it!
All versions of our products contain most of the above mushrooms. Because of its rarity, you only get the Bondarzewia in the tinctured and glycerite versions. Although, the tea and capsules contain a highly medicinal blend. We could literally write a book on the benefits of medicinal mushrooms, yet we shall stick to a few key points.
First of all, the biggest question we get asked is, “Can I eat mushrooms with candida/fungal issues?” Due to this being a “grey area”, we should do our best to clarify and give our opinion. The fact that it is a grey area, speaks volumes. If mushrooms fed fungus, it may be well-known and not questionable at all. What does candida feed on? That should be something you ask yourselves. It feeds on processed sugars and carbohydrates, none of which are in mushrooms. They are immune-stimulating and anything that may help immunity, could be beneficial. Take into consideration the fact that they are a highly respected herb in ancient Chinese medicine. Most of the people we meet claim to have candida issues and I am sure that a high percentage of other nationalities, as well as nations, experience the same. Therefore, again, if candida fed on fungi, we would probably not be asking ourselves, or others, this question.
Mushrooms are rich in B vitamins and supply a complete complex of vitamin B! Meaning if you use a blend of mushrooms, like this, you may be getting all the B vitamins! A vitamin B deficiency is commonly associated with pathogenic issues, as it is said they feed on the B vitamins inside of our body. They are dense in riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid. When you receive these compounds together, you may be protecting heart health. Riboflavin is beneficial for your red blood cells and niacin supports digestive health and skin. In higher amounts, niacin acts as a flush for toxins and toxic matter.
They are high in selenium, potassium, copper, iron, and phosphorus, which are not normally found in herbs. They are also high in antioxidants, such as ergothioneine and glutathion, which are said to be preventatives and supportive of many types of neurological issues, especially the more common and chronic ones. As a matter of fact, by consuming them daily, you may boost processes of the brain, like memory, and lessen cognitive decline later in life.
Antioxidants are amazing for support with free radicals and oxidative stress. This in turn supports cellular health and may offer cell protection. The vitamin C content in mushrooms is significant enough to mention. Vitamin C supports immunity and heart health as well. We use the whole mushroom, including the stem. The stem is high in a fiber called beta-glucans and they are known for cholesterol support.
Mushrooms are commonly used in cooking because many say they enhance the taste of food. This is due to the glutamate ribonucleotides. They are actually used to substitute meats for many vegetarians and these compounds are what make them taste similar. Therefore, they have the taste, yet no harmful effects on your blood pressure or heart. They are low in salt, calories, fat, and cholesterol.
Many are looking to supplement vitamin D, yet when they take a synthetic form, many say it didn’t agree with them. Mushrooms may be a great way to supplement vitamin D, due to a compound called ergosterol, which they convert to create a natural vitamin D. This means they may support all that vitamin D supplementation does, like bone health and strength!
Mushrooms such as Cordyceps have been used in Chinese medicine for ages to treat fatigue, sickness, kidney disease, and low sex drive. They may have potential anti-tumor benefits, which you will have to research yourself. They are also currently being studied for their natural sugar content that may do the opposite of chemically processed sugar to potentially have benefits for those with Diabetes. Studies are also being done on the anti-inflammatory benefits as well and are very promising. (2)
Reishi is one of the more popular mushrooms for immunity support. Studies are being done in their effects on the genes, activity, and lymphocyte functions of white blood cells. They are also said to support fatigue, depression, heart and cardiovascular health. The blood sugar and antioxidant profile and support they may offer is similar to the other mushrooms as well.
Many are seeking support for Lyme Disease and mushrooms may be a great option. You will find those mentioned to be supportive to also be in this blend, like Chaga, Maitakie, and Lion’s Mane. As a matter of fact, Cordyceps, Chaga, and Lion’s Mane are in many of the expert’s protocols. Learn more by Clicking Here.
As far as the rarest of them, Bondarzewia, there is little to no information on this wild mushroom. What we can attest to is that it is my own personal “goto” when I am feeling like I have a cold and every time, without fail, I feel better the next day! Do your own research on the benefits of medicinal mushrooms, as you may find they are too numerous to mention! There may be nothing more satisfying than a warm cup of medicinal mushroom tea! During times of illness, they truly are something to consider incorporating into your regimen, and diet!
