From practices like Ayurveda to Traditional Chinese Medicine, mushrooms have been purported to be the cure-all. From claims of being able to fight off viruses, to shrinking tumors, it appears that all humans everywhere should find a way to get their daily mushroom intake.
Although humans have consumed mushrooms for thousands of years, they have also made much headway in terms of medicinal technology. Mycological research has led to the development of antibiotics such as penicillin. Mushrooms are not meant for just comfort foods like pizza or mushroom soup anymore. Further mycological research states mushrooms are known to be adaptogenic. Adaptogens help your body respond to stress whether it’s fatigue, trauma, or anxiety. With the hustle and bustle of daily life, who doesn’t need a little help?
