Detoxified mushrooms have been widely consumed for their healing and reparative properties for centuries.
Medical research has already attested to the ability of detoxified medical mushrooms to treat post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and a plethora of addictions. For example, Psilocybin, a main chemical compound found in medicinal mushrooms, has been clinically tested by researchers at King’s College London as a successful treatment for depression. More widely, medicinal mushrooms have been shown to promote positive brain and nerve activities, and thus, unsurprisingly, are currently being used to treat strokes, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease as well as traumatic brain injuries.
Hericium erinaceus (commonly known as Lion’s mane) has been widely used therapeutically for its promotion of nerve and brain health. Nerve growth factors have been clinically shown to express themselves through exposure to isolated compounds from the medicinal mushroom. Overall, medical mushroom are currently used to treat asthma and allergies, regulate diabetes, improve brain health and energy levels, promote heart health, boost the immune system and fight cancer. The powerful healing compounds found in medicinal mushrooms are proving to treat an ever expanding list of modern illnesses of the body and the mind.
