The Benefits Of Medicinal Mushrooms

Mental clarity and brain health are key to optimal aging and wellness in general. 

As part of our ongoing quest to provide tools for better wellness and living and to enhance optimal aging and longevity we have created a brain health system.

Part of this is our Brain Booster Multi. We designed our Brain Booster Multi to include a proprietary blend of medicinal mushrooms along with other cognition-enhancing plant products – and here are a few reasons why:

Medicinal Mushrooms May Boost Immune Function

but where do you start?

According to a 2005 report, mushrooms (fungus products) contain “compounds and complex substances with antimicrobial, antiviral, antitumor, antiallergic, immunomodulating, anti-inflammatory, antiatherogenic, hypoglycemic and hepatoprotective activities.”

Think about it - in nature, mushrooms play a main role in decomposition. Mushrooms need to have antibacterial and antifungal compounds to help protect them in such environments. Certain mushrooms have been shown to be resistant against multiple bacterial strains at the same time - while others have been proven to be antiviral.

The mushrooms in this report were shown to be antiviral both due to the immunostimulating activity of certain compounds within the mushrooms studied and the compounds’ ability to inhibit viral enzymes, which inhibits replication.

Supports Heart Health And Energy Levels

Many types of mushrooms ward off “bad” cholesterol, which keeps arteries from getting clogged and reduces the risk of heart disease. 

These mushrooms can also raise the levels of “good” cholesterol, which can help enhance efficient blood circulation and maintain healthy blood pressure.

Cordyceps mushrooms (Cordyceps sinensis) in particular are known as “adaptogens.” Adaptogenic foods and nutrients help your body react and respond to stress. One way they are thought to do this is by lowering cortisol levels. 

As your body adapts faster to stress, you can expect a decrease in fatigue and an increase in energy levels – making recovery after workouts and illness faster.

Cordyceps also contains a type of polysaccharide (a complex carbohydrate) that helps cells communicate with each other.

Ease in communication between cells is what ensures your body reacts to pathogens, injury, and more quickly and efficiently – it’s an essential component in your body’s healing mechanisms.

Optimizes Brain Function

The adaptogenic power present in cordyceps also can enhance brain function. Lowering levels of cortisol not only improves heart health but can help relieve your brain from stress.

Like cordyceps, reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) is a powerful adaptogen – but it also has anti-inflammatory benefits. When inflammation strikes, it can affect your brain directly – this study suggested that major depressive disorder (MDD) is associated with inflammation in the brain. 

Reishi’s powerful anti-inflammatory effects may have positive effects on mood enhancement and in clearing brain fog – which is why we included it in our Brain Booster Multi.

This supplement supports improved cognition potential, brain health, & helps to clear brain fog by using rigorously tested nootropic compounds and powerful antioxidants to give your brain the ability to function at peak capacity.
