Magic Mushrooms

Magic Mushrooms

We have all heard of the common culinary white button, portobello and shiitake mushrooms, but many other (powerful) varieties may not have entered your home… yet.

These superfood fungi are believed to have renowned benefits in human health. Lions Mane, Reishi, Chaga, Turkey Tail to name a few, are widely being used in smoothies, coffees, supplements and foods. As well as being used by traditional healers for thousands of years, bringing us focus and clarity.
 
Studies also show assistance such as supporting the immune system, hormone regulation and cognitive function. Medicinal mushrooms are not “magic psychedelic” but are packed with antioxidants and other compounds that provide and enhance moods, relieve stress and anxiety, and can also provide anti-ageing benefits. They are safe to consume and are a must in my wellness routine, plus they’re gentle enough to be used everyday!
 
Though each medicinal mushroom has its own distinctive powers, all these functional mushrooms act as a potent adaptogen working with your body bringing it back into homeostasis and supporting longevity.
HOW TO USE
Stir 1/2 tsp of a chosen mushroom powder blend into hot water or plant milk. My preference is to add to cold oat milk with a shot of coffee.
LIONS MANE MUSHROOM
Best taken in the Morning. It contains antioxidant and immune boosting properties, and stimulates brain function for the day. Best paired with coffee to conceals the bitter earthy taste.
Research has found Lions Mane boosts cognitive function and helps repair nerve damage, and can also protect against dementia. After 4 weeks of use it has been shown that symptoms linked to depression were reduced. 
 
REISHI MUSHROOM
Best taken in the evening after dinner. This mushroom is known as natures xanax, and is great for easing anxiety and keeping a calm state of mind. A great addition to a Chai Tea.
Reishi is commonly known for sleep boosting abilities along with treatments for infection and other heath issues such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and support during chemotherapy.
 
CHAGA MUSHROOM
Chaga is very versatile so can be used all day. It’s especially good added to foods (such as home made granola bars), and also in hot water, coffee and chai.
Chaga is rich in fibre and many nutrients including vitamin D, iron, magnesium and calcium. It can also help alleviate aches/pains and arthritis, slowing down progression of certain liver problems and even cancer.
 
TURKEY TAIL MUSHROOM
Packed with anti-oxidants and fibre, Turkey Tail can help to improve gut bacteria which positivity impacts your immunity, weight loss goals and can also help with respiratory conditions. Unlike some of the bitter earthy mushrooms, this one has a very mild flavour so can be a great addition to warm soups and risottos.
Always consult your health care professionals for more advise if needed.
 
Lions Mane is my go to for Brain food! Which one will you be running out to get…? 
 
Enjoy your natural high.
