Ganoderma lucidumLegend has it that Reishi, whose name means "Mushroom of Immortality", has been used in Asia as a natural remedy for more than 4000 years. Its extract is rich in bioactive compounds such as polysaccharides and triterpenes that have been described as anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antimicrobial, and antitumoral agents. At a neuronal level, Reishi powder exhibits properties of GABA neurotransmitter, activating the parasympathetic nervous system responsible for relaxation and restful sleep. Reishi takes 9 months to grow and due to its hard texture is not used as an edible mushroom.
Hericium erinaceusLion’s Mane mushroom has been prized in traditional Chinese medicine for its neuroprotective and neuroregenerative properties. Today, the effects of this brain resembling mushroom have been confirmed scientifically. Lion's Mane helps improve cognitive function, increase focus, strengthen memory, and alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression. Apart from supporting neurological homeostasis, Lion's Mane soothes the gastrointestinal tract and treats sleep disorders. It is also increasingly used as a culinary delicacy.
Chaga is a parasitic fungus that primarily grows in cold climates of Northern Scandinavia and Siberia, conditions required to optimally form its valuable compounds. The latest research shows that, based on its high Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) values, Chaga is one of the strongest antioxidants found in nature. Chaga is commonly applied for the treatment of inflammatory gastrointestinal diseases, chronic gastritis, ulcers and leaky gut. Further, it supports the immune function, fights skin inflammation (esp. psoriasis) and promotes wound healing.
