You've heard of the power of mushrooms, their medicinal value and use in ancient cultures. We've put together the top four culinary mushrooms that have medicinal value - Maitake, Shiitake, Lion's Mane, and Oyster.
Maitake is thought to help with high blood pressure, cholesterol, cancer, and diabetes. Shiitake is thought to help protecting against cancer, high cholesterol, and viral infections such as hepatitis C and HPV. Lion's Mane is thought to shrink or stop the growth of tumors, and can help to regenerate the myelin sheath on nerves in the brain, improving cognitive functioning and memory. It's currently being studied as a prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease. Oyster mushrooms are packed with vitamins and minerals, and antioxidants that can alleviate inflammation, and boost brain health.
