Nature holds many secrets for us. Slowly but surely we are discovering more and more properties of plants – think of hemp – and fungi… Fungi? Of course. Medicinal mushrooms are fungi to which many beneficial properties are attributed. Actually a natural product just as beautiful as CBD.
There are currently three popular varieties of medicinal mushrooms in circulation; Lion’s Mane, Reishi, and Chaga. These three mushrooms all have their own specific qualities.
1. Lion’s Mane
Lion’s Mane (or wig mushroom) is a mushroom that actually doesn’t look like a mushroom at all. The traditional concept of a tribe with a hat is completely turned upside down here. This fungus has long, flexible spines. When you see this fungus – which doesn’t happen quickly because it is quite rare – it has a cuddly, soft appearance.
When you ingest this fungus it has an amazing effect. This fungus actually targets the engine of your body: your brain. It focuses on healthy brain chemistry, memory, and general mind and body health.
Reishi is a mushroom that comes from the Far East. It is often referred to as the ‘Feel-good mushroom’ because it has so many positive effects on the body. For example, it is good for your memory, energy level, liver, skin, heart and blood vessels and immune system.
The Chaga mushroom is sometimes referred to as the ‘diamond of the forest’ or ‘king of the herbs’. This fungus looks the least like a mushroom. Rather like a blackened piece of bark from a tree. Nothing is less true. The real beauty of this fungus also lies within.
The special thing about this Chaga is that it is a vegetable antibiotic. For example, the Chaga can – to say the least – be a valuable supplement for cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, psoriasis, or AIDS. It should never replace your regular antibiotics. However, it can be taken extra as a dietary supplement.

More and more people are using medicinal mushrooms, including these three. Why? Because it can be a very valuable addition to your diet. Not only do they have a wonderful story, but they can really mean something to you. Just like CBD. That is why we would like to give you a tip; before going to sleep, immerse yourself in Lion’s Mane, Reishi, or Chaga. You will not regret it!
