Are mushrooms the future of wellness?
The magnificent world of fungi and Adaptogens have profound effects on our wellbeing and are promising sources of therapeutic benefits.
Certain mushrooms are rich in vital nutrients like selenium, magnesium, calcium, zinc, and B vitamins, which can support the immune system, nervous system, circulatory system to mention a few, as well as healing our skin if infused in skincare formulas.
Adaptogenic mushrooms are mushrooms that help support the body’s natural defense against occasional stress. They are a specific type of functional mushrooms that are considered adaptogens, which are potent mushrooms or herbs that may help bring stability to bodily functions and help the body to maintain homeostasis.
It is important to know that the term “adaptogenic” refers to specific types of functional mushrooms and their unique ability to support the body and its natural healthy processes, as beautifully stated by the Om mushroom team. Specifically, by consuming adaptogenic mushrooms, you are training your body to better handle stress. Your body is adapting. The recommended dosage of adaptogenic mushrooms can be consumed in various ways, including whole-food powders and supplements.
Adaptogenic mushrooms come in many different forms and can be found all over the globe and may improve the body’s resilience to physiological and environmental stressors to maintain good health.
So whether you take your mushrooms as a powder in your morning coffee or add mushroom capsules to your daily supplement regimen, incorporating adaptogenic mushrooms into your wellness routine is easier than ever.
Our favourite one? Hard to choose but Reishi is definitely on top of our list. The reishi mushroom has been known for centuries as the “mushroom of immortality”. It is an immune system essential, supporting the body’s natural ability to stay healthy. Reishi mushrooms may also act as a helping hand for those who suffer from occasional restlessness and low mood. The mushroom may help the body’s natural response to occasional mood fluctuation, supporting overall mental stability and wellness.
Like other adaptogenic mushrooms, these types of mushrooms offer antioxidant support, which are essential in supporting the body’s ability to respond to ups and downs life throws at you.
Adaptogens are the hero ingredient in our Reishi Wellness and Lion’s Mane Mushroom Powders, as well as our Multivitamin Face Balm, Botanical Qi Face Serum and Phyto-Retinol Face Oil.
