You will be amazed by the benefits of medicinal mushrooms combined with quality cannabis.
Mushrooms help boost your immune system, your athletic performance, your mental clarity, and they can even help you prevent and fight cancer. We are proud to introduce Oklahoma medical marijuana patients to the world of medicinal mushrooms combined with medical cannabis.
Mushrooms have been used for thousands of years in cultures around the world, particularly in Asian countries. The ancient Egyptians believed eating mushrooms brought long life. Now, modern scientists are discovering some fascinating healing properties of mushrooms. And more than a hundred species of mushrooms are currently being studied across around the world today for their potential health benefits.
Five Ways Mushrooms Can Improve your Health
#1 – Increasing Antioxidant Activity
Free radicals damage various structures in your body’s cells. This cellular damage contributes to an increase in your risk for developing many health problems, including those related to aging. Decreasing or inactivating free radicals can lead to huge benefits for your health. Dietary antioxidants, such as vitamin C, vitamin A, selenium, beta-carotene, and others, counter the adverse health effects of free radicals. Many mushrooms also contain powerful ingredients that have been found to neutralize free radicals. Extracts of the medicinal mushroom Reishi have been shown to reduce free radical activity. Known in China as the “spirit plant,” Reishi is believed to relax and fortify both mind and body. Similarly, the journal Carbohydrate Polymers reports that polysaccharides present in the fungus Cordyceps have been shown to “improve the antioxidation activity in immunosuppressed mice (and to) significantly increase… total antioxidant capacity.” The great news is that Cordyceps not only helps to neutralize harmful free radicals, it also enhances the activity of your body’s innate antioxidant systems.
#2 – Enhancing the Immune System
Your immune system is continually working to clear away debris, fight off cancer cells, and support your body to achieve vibrant, healthy functioning. Sometimes, especially as you age, your immune system can begin to wear down and function less effectively. Mushrooms can help. They boost both the levels and activity of many vital components of your immune system — and may even “prime” immune cells so that they become more effective in responding to future infections and attacks. Macrophages are a type of immune white blood cell that engulfs and digests cellular debris, foreign substances, microbes, cancer cells, and anything else in your body that does not appear healthy to the immune system.
Reishi has been shown to boost the production of many components of the immune system, including natural killer cells, which detect and destroy cancer cells and cells infected with viruses. In one study, 34 patients with advanced stages of cancer were treated for 12 weeks with a Reishi-sourced polysaccharide. The patients who were given the treatment showed substantial improvements in the effectiveness of their immune function.
Turkey Tail contains an impressive array of antioxidants, including phenols and flavonoids. In fact, one study detected over 35 different antioxidants in a sample of Turkey Tail mushroom extract. The most impressive evidence regarding the anticancer benefits of Turkey Tail mushroom is when it’s used in combination with more traditional treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation.
#3 – Managing Blood Sugar Levels
Mushrooms may also be useful in managing safe levels of blood sugar.
Compounds from Cordyceps have been shown to help support balanced blood sugar levels. For example, a study published in the journal Biological and Pharmaceutical Bulletin found that a Cordyceps polysaccharide showed “potent hypoglycemic (blood sugar lowering) activity in genetic diabetic mice,” while “plasma glucose level was quickly reduced in normal and streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice.” The study also found that this same Cordyceps-sourced polysaccharide contributed to lower triglyceride and cholesterol levels.
One of the most common and devastating complications that can be caused by diabetes is diabetic nephropathy. Over time, the condition can cause the kidneys to malfunction and, eventually, to fail. In one promising study, Cordyceps was shown to significantly reduce blood glucose levels, lower kidney breakdown markers, and preserve renal function in mice.
#4 – Supporting Brain Health
Lion’s Mane has a long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine. Once reserved for royal families, Lion’s Mane contains up to 20% protein and is considered to be a gourmet dish by many. Potent compounds in Lion’s Mane have been shown to activate a very important peptide (a small protein) known as “nerve growth factor” or NGF. NGF is necessary for the growth, maintenance, and survival of the neurons in your brain.
These Lion’s Mane compounds stimulate your neurons to re-grow and trigger a process known as re-myelination, which helps to keep your neurons healthy and maintains their ability to conduct electrical signals efficiently. In one small Japanese clinical study, elderly men and women with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) were given Lion’s Mane for 16 weeks. Throughout the study period, the mushroom-eating group showed significantly increased scores on a cognitive function scale compared with the placebo group. But if they stopped consuming the mushroom, their advantage disappeared.
Lion’s Mane has been shown to help prevent the breakdown of spatial short-term and visual recognition memory and delay the onset of cognitive dysfunction.
#5 – Improving Exercise Performance
Mushrooms don’t just help you live longer. They can also help you live better — and stronger. Especially Cordyceps. Cordyceps extracts have been shown to dilate the aorta — the main artery in your body that supplies oxygenated blood to your entire circulatory system — by up to 40%, thereby increasing blood flow and greatly enhancing endurance. What’s more, Cordyceps contains adenosine and can stimulate the production of ATP — one of the main sources of energy in your body’s cells. This may be one of the reasons why it has been found to improve stamina in athletic performance. In one Japanese study, supplementation with Cordyceps improved the performance of over 70% of long-distance runners.
In a 2010 double-blind, placebo-controlled study, a Cordyceps extract known as Cs-4 was given to 20 healthy elderly subjects three times per day for 12 weeks. Supplementation with Cs-4 was found to meaningfully improve their exercise performance and overall wellness.
It also boosts male virility.
All mushrooms contain beta glucans, which have been found to help fight inflammation and aid the immune system. Mushrooms are thought to protect against breast and other hormone-related cancers because they inhibit an enzyme called aromatase, which produces estrogen. Mushrooms also contain a type of lectins that recognize cancer cells and prevent these cells from growing and dividing.
Full Fruiting Body
When purchasing mushroom supplements be sure you look for full fruiting body mushrooms, such as those found in Blossom Canna products. You want to avoid products that contain myceliated grain. U.S. producers of mycelium grow their mycelium on cooked, sterilized cereal grain (rice, oats, sorghum, etc.). What they don’t talk about is that the grain is not separated from the final product so it is not 100% mycelium like often assumed, but a myceliated grain, very much like the food product called Tempeh. U.S. grown mycelium on grain, or MOG, is mostly starch from the residual grain. It contains as little as one tenth the amount of ergosterol as actual mushrooms.
Ergosterol is a fungal sterol and a key indicator of fungal matter. Testing for ergosterol is used by the grain industry to measure the amount of fungal contamination in stored grain. Be sure you are sourcing full fruiting body when shopping for your mushrooms.
