Updated: May 4, 2022

I'll leave the magic mushrooms for someone else!

medicinal mushrooms contain a wide array of powerful healing compounds that you can benefit from.

1) antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial aroperties

many of the compounds they produce to do this aren’t harmful to humans and act as natural antibiotics in our bodies when we consume them.

2) vitamin and mineral content

mushrooms produce the same wide range of vitamins and minerals that you’d expect to get from eating fruits and vegetables.

3) source of fiber

mushrooms contain both soluble and insoluble fiber, so they make a great addition to your diet. fiber is essential in maintaining intestinal health and can lower the risk of colorectal cancer and other diseases.

4) high in antioxidants

mushrooms contain compounds called antioxidants that seek out free radicals and remove them from our bodies. this decreases the amount of oxidative stress in our bodies and damage done to our cells and DNA.

5) beta glucan

all mushrooms contain high amounts of beta glucan. this substance helps to stimulate the immune system and may offer a number of other health benefits. Including helping with allergies, asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome, and other conditions.

6) polysaccharidesd

different polysaccharides have different benefits. the ones found in mushrooms offer a wide range of benefits including anti-cancer, anti-obesity, anti-diabetes, and antibiotic properties.

7) other compounds

altogether, mushrooms potentially contain hundreds of compounds with medical benefits. these range from boosting the immune system to anti-tumor compounds.

with all of these benefits as well as decreasing inflammation, medicinal mushrooms are great to use along side Equiscope treatments. they can help maintain the amazing detox effects from the Equiscope and and keep your inflammation down to help you heal from acute/chronic pain or injury.

the life long benefits of mushrooms are unbeatable. oxidative stress plays a huge part in aging, and we all have stressors in our life and could use a natural way to decrease our oxidative stress. oxidative stress is an imbalance in free radicals and can break down cell tissue, causing DNA damage, which can lead to chronic inflammation. oxidative stress may play a role in the development of many conditions such as parkinson's, alzheimer's, diabetes and cancer. rather than treating problems as they arise, prevent them from happening in the first place. medicinal mushrooms may prevent so many terrible diseases.
