Functional mushrooms have become a hot topic in health circles over the last few years, and for good reason. While we already know that regular cooking mushrooms are loaded with nutrients, functional mushrooms take things one step further, with studies revealing just how many benefits these super fungi offer to our overall well-being.
“Unlike health fads that come and go, the science is clear – these mushrooms have proven health benefits for the mind and body. “
What exactly are functional mushrooms, and why are they one of the fastest-growing health trends we’ve seen in recent years?
Functional Mushrooms 101
They may be emerging in mainstream cultures right now but functional mushrooms have been around for a very long time. They’ve been used in East Asian medicine for thousands of years, with the earliest recorded use dating to 450 BC.
Research shows that functional mushrooms have great success in boosting immune systems and increasing energy while improving memory and cognitive function, reducing stress and improving sleep.
Although functional mushrooms certainly have many life-altering benefits, they’re not to be confused with psychedelic or magic mushrooms. They are legal and safe to use, with no toxins or risk of getting ‘high’. A growing number of clinical trials continue to show their safety and benefits.
Functional Mushroom Types
The three most powerful functional mushrooms are Lion’s Mane, Reishi and Cordyceps. Each of these mushroom species has its own benefits.
Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) is known for its memory-boosting and cognitive health benefits, promoting optimal brain health. According to a 2013 study on neuronal health, this mushroom can greatly help to improve brain and nerve health.
Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) helps to improve immune function. A study on Herbal Medicine: Biomolecular and Clinical Aspects shows considerable evidence that supports the immunostimulating abilities of reishi mushrooms.
Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinensis) optimises energy. Several studies have been done on this mushroom’s ability to improve fitness and respiratory capacity during exercise.
