Mushroom Supplements and Extracts

Mushroom Supplements

Mushroom SupplementsMushroom magic has become one of the latest health fads, and it may be on to something. The medicinal potential of mushrooms has suddenly seen them become one of the most sought-after supplements today.

People are constantly looking for ways to enhance their well-being and health. With medicinal mushrooms having numerous health benefits, the nutrition supplement market has another product to add to their shelves. These include many mushroom capsules, powders, and extracts.

Here’s everything you need to know about the new health trend: mushroom supplements and extracts.

What Are Mushroom Supplements?

Mushroom supplements have gained immense popularity due to their simplicity. These supplements are exactly what their name suggests: a mushroom extract blend, which is in some cases mixed with minerals and vitamins for more benefits.

Mushrooms used in these supplements are different from the ones you buy for cooking. Some formulas for these supplements may include maitake and shiitake mushrooms but you will reap more benefits from other fungi (medicinal mushrooms) that have been used for medicinal purposes for ages in the East.

What Are the Best Mushrooms for Supplements?

Not all mushrooms are included in these extracts and/or supplements. Some of the commonly used mushrooms in extracts and supplements include:

  • Reishi
  • Chaga
  • Cordyceps
  • Maitake
  • Lion’s Mane

Benefits of Mushroom Supplements

Eastern medicine has incorporated medicinal mushrooms for millennia, and the West is finally catching up. Mushrooms have been found to have superpowers, including preventing and treating cancer (1).

The best mushroom supplements have been found to help with boosting immunity, offer cognitive benefits, increase energy levels, and enhance sleep. However, different benefits are derived from distinct medicinal mushroom supplements. When you take mushroom supplements that are a combination of various medicinal mushrooms, you reap the most benefits.

Mushroom supplements are considered safe, unlike most prescription pills. Since they are naturally-occurring medicines, they come with minimal to no side effects.

Medicinal Mushrooms for Active People

While anyone can take mushroom supplements and/or extracts, they are gaining more popularity among active people. Medicinal mushrooms are considered a superfood for athletes. They not only help support all body functions but also help with sports recovery and performance.

When added to your daily routine, medicinal mushrooms can help you with endurance, performance, and enhanced stamina. They also have anti-fatigue effects. For recovery, these supplements help with faster muscle recovery, modulate the immune system, and minimize the bad effects of stress on your body. As an active person, you should always have mushroom supplements with you if you want to enhance your performance and improve recovery after a workout.

According to this study from Science Direct (2), mushrooms, especially maitake, are rich in antioxidants such as glutathione. This antioxidant can help active people maintain great immune systems, and improve their recovery from intense workouts. They do this by preventing inflammation.
