In your quest for holistic health, you need to discover medicinal mushrooms. These superherbs boast some amazing health benefits.  Specifically, they pack an array of bioactive compounds that fortify your immune system, as well as promote a healthy gut microbiome. Can you imagine a mushroom blend with 9 amazing mushrooms? (1)

Well, Dr. Edward Group and David ‘Avocado’ Wolfe did! And their mushroom blend combines scientific research with key health insights to make the best ever mushroom powder. (2)

These 9 made the cut for the Organic Mushroom Blend:

1. Chaga

While you might mistake it for a burl on a tree, chaga is actually revered as the “King of Mushrooms” for its potent medicinal properties. This mushroom is a powerhouse of antioxidants, including polysaccharides and melanin. Specifically, research shows that chaga bolsters immunity and fights oxidative stress. Chaga also supports gut health by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria and soothing gastrointestinal inflammation. Researchers extol its myriad benefits, from health to pharmaceutical to agricultural possibilities. (3)

2. Cordyceps

Cordyceps, often referred to as the “Caterpillar fungus,” has been prized in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. For one, it boasts adaptogenic qualities, helping the body adapt to stressors while modulating the immune response. Cordyceps also aids in gut health by balancing the microbiome and promoting the production of short-chain fatty acids, which nourish intestinal cells. (4)

3. King Trumpet

King trumpet mushrooms, also known as “Eryngii,” are renowned for their rich umami flavor and impressive nutritional profile. These mushrooms are packed with vitamins, minerals, and polysaccharides that support immune function and gut health. Specifically, this noble medicinal mushroom is renowned for nourishing the immune system and neutralizing toxic forms of cholesterol. (5)

4. Agaricus

The Brazilian rainforest has offered up many medicines.  Here’s another! Agaricus, commonly known as the “God mushroom” or “Brazilian mushroom,” is rich in beta-glucans and antioxidants. In addition, its immune-enhancing properties stimulate the production of white blood cells, which protect the body from pathogens. Furthermore, agaricus contains prebiotic fiber that nourishes beneficial gut bacteria. This, in turn, supports digestive health. (6)

5. Reishi

Known as the “Mushroom of Immortality,” reishi has been revered in traditional Chinese medicine for millennia. It contains bioactive compounds like triterpenes and polysaccharides that regulate immune function and reduce inflammation. Reishi also supports gut health by modulating gut microbiota composition and promoting gut barrier integrity. Furthermore, this Queen of the Medicinal Mushrooms has supported health and longevity for millennia. (7)

6. Antrodia

Native to Taiwan, antrodia is a rare medicinal mushroom prized for its liver-protective and immune-modulating properties. It contains unique triterpenoids and polysaccharides that exert potent antioxidant effects, shielding cells from damage and bolstering immunity. Antrodia also supports gut health by reducing inflammation and enhancing the integrity of the intestinal barrier. An analysis of this mushroom powder confirms that it is a safe food, as well as a nutritional powerhouse. (8, 9)

7. Shiitake

Shiitake mushrooms are prized for their savory flavor and impressive health benefits. For example, they contain polysaccharides like lentinan, which stimulate immune cell activity and enhance defense mechanisms. This helps protect against cancer, but it also makes conventional cancer treatment more tolerable. Shiitake also supports gut health by supporting a beneficial gut microbiome, which supports healthy digestion and reduces the risk of colon cancer. (10, 11)

8. Maitake

Next, maitake, or “Hen of the Woods,” is esteemed for its immune-stimulating beta-glucans and polysaccharides. These compounds activate macrophages and natural killer cells, enhancing the body’s ability to fight infections and cancer tumors. Maitake also promotes gut health by modulating inflammatory responses and promoting the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. (12)

9. Turkey Tail

Last but certainly not least: turkey tail. Named for their striking resemblance to turkey tail feathers, these little mushroom fans are potent immune modulators. Like all these medicinal mushrooms, Trametes versicolor is high in polysaccharides, such as beta glucans. Specifically, turkey tail is rich in polysaccharopeptides. We can credit these PRPs with helping the body modulate immune function. And that means being more adaptable to an invader (like a virus) but not overexpressing the immune system, like in an autoimmune condition. Additionally, they support gut health by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria while suppressing the growth of harmful ones. (13)

The potential is worth considering.

Adding these nine nourishing mushrooms to your diet can provide a natural boost to your immune system and promote optimal gut health. And did you notice the influence on cancer cells?
