Whether eating gourmet mushrooms, taking mushroom powders as a dietary supplement or drinking one of our Instant Hot Health-Drinks, mushrooms can have beneficial effects on your health. The high level of polysaccharides & anti-oxidants are a boon for your immunity and for reducing the risks of cancer, diabetes, and auto-immune disorders.
Each mushroom variety also has specific health benefits, which are listed below:
The neuroregenerative mushroom. Lion’s mane mushrooms contain two compounds — hericenones and erinacines — that can stimulate the growth of brain & nerve cells. This makes it an effective treatment for early onset dementia, spinal injuries, concussions, & nerve damage.
Lions mane is also restorative for stomach lining & gut issues & guards against ulcers.
It is used as a daily supplement to increase memory function, clear brain fog & protect against alzheimers & dementia.
Oyster mushrooms contain the amino acid ergothioneine, which has powerful antioxidant effects. They have been proven to heal liver damage and inhibit oxidative damage to human artery cells and prevent oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol, possibly thanks to the amino acid ergothioneine.
Oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol is involved in the process of atherosclerosis, which is the buildup of plaque in the arteries that can lead to heart disease.
Oyster mushrooms may promote heart health by reducing heart disease risk factors like high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
P. ostreatus is especially high in several compounds that benefit heart health, including fibers called beta-glucans.
Beta-glucans are fermented by gut bacteria to produce short-chain fatty acids that can help reduce cholesterol production in your body. Interestingly, P. ostreatus provides twice as many beta-glucans as white button mushrooms (A. bisporus).
A 2020 review of eight human studies found that P. ostreatus intake helped lower blood sugar, triglycerides, blood pressure, and insulin levels, all of which could decrease heart disease risk.
In addition to promoting heart health, oyster mushrooms may help regulate blood sugar levels.
the mushrooms increase sugar use in body tissues while inhibiting certain blood sugar-increasing proteins.
Significantly reduce blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels attributed to the mushroom’s high concentration of beta-glucans, as this type of fiber slows down carbohydrate digestion and absorption.
Immune-supportive benefits and antiviral and antibacterial effects.
Significantly improve symptoms in children with recurrent respiratory tract infections and significantly reduce the incidence of upper respiratory tract infections in athletes.
Heightened the immune system by activating interferon-γ (IFN-γ), a molecule that plays a critical role in protecting against infection.
Gut health benefits by decreasing the growth of pathogenic bacteria and increasing the production of beneficial short-chain fatty acids in their guts.
Anti-inflammatory effects. These mushrooms contain anti-inflammatory compounds.
Oyster mushrooms have been shown to regulate hormone levels and hormone production.
Elm oyster mushrooms can contain a number of essential minerals including magnesium, iron, manganese and zinc. As with many mushrooms, Elm Oyster mushrooms are an excellent source of Vitamin D. Their medicinal values include immune modulation due to the interaction of their glucans with the human immune system assist in protecting the body from infection and to fight cancer growth.. Elm Oyster mushrooms also produce a natural form of lovastatin, a mevinolin that inhibits the synthesis and absorption of cholesterol therefore of significant support for cardiovascular health.
