Immune Boosting Benefits of Medicinal Mushrooms
Mushrooms have been used for centuries by traditional healers to help strengthen the immune system. A good source of calcium, magnesium, potassium, fiber, niacin, essential amino acids and Vitamins B and D, mushrooms have been used in China and elsewhere around the world as natural remedies, and to help boost immunity for centuries.
The following fungi are well known for their purported beneficial properties including:
Agaricus blazei - This nutrient-dense mushroom contains higher levels of protein than most other mushrooms. In traditional Chinese medicine Agaricus blazei was known to help build immunity and promote healthy body weight, and as a detoxifier to help improve liver function.
Cordyceps - This mushroom, which grows out of caterpillar larvae in the Himalayas. has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to help treat conditions including coughing, wheezing, reducing fatigue, and to calm nervousness. Cordyceps mushrooms are also revered for their potential to enhance physical performance.
Coriolus versicolor - This mushroom has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries but since the1970s has become one of the most widely researched mushrooms in conventional medicine. More than 400 studies have evaluated Coriolus mushrooms for their immune-boosting qualities.
Ganoderma - This mushroom grows on wood and is one of Asia's most popular medicinal mushrooms. Many species of Ganoderma contain bioactive compounds and antioxidants that have potential therapeutic benefits including promoting liver health, helping reduce cholesterol, and may have antimicrobial qualities.
Maitake - Maitake mushrooms grow in clusters at the base of oak trees and are native to Northeastern Japan and North America. In 2009, a human trial showed Maitake could stimulate the immune systems.
Shiitake - Traditional Chinese herbalists have used shiitake mushrooms to help with ailments including gastrointestinal distress, and liver problems. It is known that ancient physicians prescribed shiitake to boost chi, or life energy. Today, shiitake mushrooms are a subject of intense research, and the medicinal capabilities attributed to the mushroom are so prized that it is now among the most cultivated of the world's edible mushrooms.
