The first step to incorporating mushrooms and adaptogens into your life is figuring out what you want to achieve. It's easy to get caught up in fad diets, but the truth is that you should be thinking about how you want to feel and live your life.
Medical mushrooms are great for:
- Decreasing stress
- Increasing energy levels
- Improving focus and productivity
- Reducing inflammation
- Lowering oxidative stress
- Enhancing immune function
- Supporting cognitive health and memory
- Boosting gut health
And much more. Read about the benefits of some medical mushrooms below...
Most people will experience some benefits from regularly taking medical mushrooms. They are not, however, a silver bullet but another great tool to add to your physical and mental health arsenal.
Let's take Reishi as an example. Also known as the chill one, it is great for helping you de-stress, detox, and boost your mood. One study on 132 Chinese patients with neurasthenia found that the group who ingested reishi mushroom extracts for eight weeks had improved reports of aches, pains, and dizziness. Not only that, but their feelings of irritability improved, suggesting that reishi mushrooms may also act as a mood booster.
It's not as powerful as something like a benzodiazepine, so adding other stress-reliving activities like meditation and exercise as part of a holistic health plan will make the effects of reishi much more impactful.
