A Fungus For Improved Health

Mushroom supplements are the latest craze in the health and wellness sphere. More people are turning to mushrooms as a natural source of vitamins, minerals, and other health benefits. Yet, there is undeniable evidence that this is more than a fad. There are over 10,000 known types of mushrooms, with many fit for human use. In addition to being used as both a food and a drug, research has revealed that mushrooms are excellent health supplements with the following 4 potential benefits.


1. Boost immunity

The body’s immune system protects the body from viruses, illnesses, and other invaders. A person’s immune system is a delicate balance that poor diet, infections, and environmental triggers can compromise. An overly up-regulated immune system can lead to autoimmune conditions. Mushrooms are known to have antioxidants, polyphenols, and other immunomodulating compounds. Some mushrooms even have prebiotic and probiotic properties while containing more antioxidants than fruit. A supplement may help the immune system fight infections or even prevent autoimmune conditions.

2. An energy spark

More and more adults are feeling fatigued. Some struggle to stay alert during the day, while others need more energy to complete daily tasks. While there are many reasons for lack of energy, some people simply need a nutritional boost since vitamin and mineral deficiencies often contribute to fatigue. Mushrooms have long been known for energy-boosting properties. Some can increase the body’s production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), known as the energy source of each cell. Other mushrooms are even used as a pre-workout supplement. To boost energy while exercising. Mushrooms can also reduce free radicals, which contribute to fatigue. Studies also show certain mushrooms can help with blood circulation, providing more energy during physical activity.

3. Get focused on mushrooms

The ability to focus is a significant problem for the average adult. With so many distractions, maintaining attention can seem impossible. Furthermore, doctors are diagnosing adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) more than ever before. For people hoping to improve brain fog, focus, and attention, look no further than mushrooms. Some mushroom supplements offer excellent cognitive benefits, like improved concentration and focus. Others support the brain by optimizing nerve growth factor (NGF), a protein that aids in neuron repair in the brain, production. Mushrooms are also considered adaptogens, herbs that reduce stress and boost overall mood.

4. Regulate sugar

Another potential benefit of mushrooms is the ability to manage blood sugar levels. The average American diet contains over 77 grams of sugar. High sugar consumption can impact insulin, leading to complications like diabetes. Several types of mushrooms have hormone-balancing properties. These may help with insulin resistance by affecting the gut microbiota. Some are even used to manage diabetes in addition to dietary changes. Mushrooms are nutrient dense with a low glycemic index.
