I think it's fair to say that mushrooms are trending- and for good reason! Full of benefits that support the mind and body, we are sharing some of our favourites and how they can support you!
Chaga has been shown to support the immune system, provide potent antioxidants, help with aging gracefully, regulates blood sugar and supports inflammation.
Reishi has been shown to have adaptogenic properties, helping the body deal with stress and can even support sleep, the immune system and liver function.
Cordyceps has been shown to support with low energy, athletic endurance, adrenal function and a healthy libido.
Lion's Mane has been show to support with mood regulation, gut health, memory and focus while also providing protection against age-related cognitive decline.
Where to get them? We've been loving local brand Rainbo and their mushroom tinctures. They can be consumed directly under the tongue, with water, in coffee, tea, etc. We add their 11:11 to our morning matcha lattes and then alternate between their other tinctures throughout the day, depending on the benefits we are looking for!
Beauty Benefits: Mushrooms also can benefit the skin!
Chaga mushroom contain superoxide dismutase and catalase, which are enzymes that act as powerful antioxidants. It's enzymes help to restore pigmentation and even skin tone. The antioxidants found in Chaga work to eliminate any oxidative stress that may be rampant in the skin and prevents the onset of wrinkles, discolouration, and acne. The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) score for Chaga mushroom is considered one of the highest among natural plants.
Reishi mushroom is an incredible ingredient due to it being deeply hydrating and detoxifying, while working against premature aging, redness, and fine lines. Reishi contains beta-glucans, a chain of antioxidant glucose molecules that are responsible for attracting water from the environment to your skin.
