MUSHROOMS AS MEDICINE?
In ancient Egypt, the pharaohs forbade commoners from eating mushrooms because they considered them to be “the plant of immortality”.
Egyptians were not the only ancient society who knew about the incredible health-promoting and medicinal properties of mushrooms. Many indigenous and Asian cultures have been using them for 1000’s of years, and now westerners are finally recognising their health superpowers.
Today, there are thousands of edible mushroom species in the world, and about 250+ have been identified as having healing powers.
Mushrooms are jam-packed full of nutrition, delicious in meals, and one of the most cost-effective superfoods in the world.
Known for their powerful immune-boosting effects, they’re also great for sharpening cognitive skills, reducing inflammation, and preventing disease.
But mushrooms can do so much more for us.
Scientists are now discovering that they are great for cancer, heart disease, bone health, digestion, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and even addictions.
Mushrooms as Medicine?
Hot new research shows that mushroom fiber is the most effective type of prebiotic fiber, helping to regulate mood, immunity, sleep, & blood circulation.
Mushrooms are now a multi-billion dollar industry, with over 900 million pounds being grown commercially each year.
And they’re a sustainable source of protein and vitamins, as mushrooms need 3/4 gallon of water to grow 1 lb, versus 1,800 gallons for 1 lb of beef.
Mushrooms are a great alternative to meat, protein powders, coffee, and flavor enhancers.
Mushrooms as medicine are safe, inexpensive, & give extremely powerful healing.
