🍄 When you think about mushrooms, I’m sure most of you can come up with the common white button, portobello & cremini. Maybe some wild varieties like morel or oyster too.

However, there are SO many more that are used in culinary and functional manners.

Of the currently known fungi, there are an estimated 2,000 species that are thought to be edible or medicinal; 15 are recognized to have what are called functional benefits. 

This means that beyond their nutritional benefits, they have each been found to help support overall health and well-being in one way or another (i.e. lowering 😣 stress levels, sharpening 🧠 cognitive function, providing a boost of ⚡️energy, etc.).

While each individual functional mushroom has its own specific benefits, all functional mushrooms work to balance your energy levels, strengthen your immune function, smooth digestion, & enhance your skin’s natural glow.

Mushrooms are loaded with polyphenols, polysaccharides, beta-glucans, & antioxidant properties. All of these compounds, together & separately, help to support your immune system, which in turn supports the rest of your body and keeps inflammation at bay.

🍄 Here’s my top list of functional mushrooms along with their benefits

  • Reshi: Helps to manage stress
  • Lions Mane: Supports memory, clarity, focus & nerve health
  • Chaga: Helps with free radical removal
  • Cordyceps: Helps elevate energy, vitality & endurance
  • Turkey Tail: Supports immune health
  • Maitake: Helps support gut health & blood sugar management
  • Shitake: Helps support detox pathways
  • King Trumpet: Contains high levels of antioxidants to support inflammation reduction

🍄 As most of these are not commonly found mushrooms, best to take these as dry powders or tinctures.

My favorites are from:

These are best made into mushroom teas or added to organic mold-free coffee like Bulletproof or Purity.

So go ahead and give these a try as an adjunct to your current diet.

I’m sure you’ll begin to see the benefits in about 1 month (or less).

Focus on what’s best for you and provide your body with the right support to allow you to thrive again.
