Medicinal Mushrooms in Powder Form at Teelixir

One of the most popular health food trends in recent years has been the introduction of medicinal mushrooms into the health and wellness community.

These ancient superfoods have been used for hundreds of years to restore balance, optimise human health and increase longevity.

The Benefits of Medicinal Mushroom Products

Medicinal mushrooms have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for centuries to support a wide range of health issues in the human body.

Medicinal mushrooms are natural anti inflammatory superfoods that work to enhance the immune response, boost energy, improve brain health, reduce stress, calm the mind, promote sleep, support gut health, blood flow and may even lower blood pressure.

There is a difference between edible and medicinal mushrooms. While some culinary mushroom species you buy from the grocery store are medicinal in nature, cooking raw mushrooms is not as beneficial as mushroom extracts. Medicinal mushroom products are more pure and potent when the mushroom fruiting body has been concentrated and extracted into an easily consumable powder form.

How to Have Mushroom Powder in Your Tea or Coffee

Teelixir provides the highest quality organic medicinal mushroom extracts that are 100% water soluble and can be easily added to cold or hot water to make an instant tonic and life promoting elixir.

When first consuming mushroom extracts, we recommend starting with 1/4 - 1/2 tsp (1-1.6 grams) per day. If you are sensitive to natural herbs or supplements, you may want to start with less. When your body feels ready, you can increase your dosage according to your daily needs.

For fast absorption, mix the mushroom powder directly into hot coffee, tea or your favourite plant based milk. Teelixir mushroom products also make a delicious addition to your smoothies, hot chocolates, soup broths, raw desserts, baked goods and more. Teelixir mushroom extracts are not sensitive to heat and therefore, their nutritional value will not be damaged by heat.

Medicinal mushrooms are suitable for people of all ages and serve many different needs. Medicinal mushrooms are widely known as the “original superfoods” for their long history of use and unique health benefits.

The most scientifically proven medicinal mushroom benefits are their power to enhance immune function. Mushrooms like Reishi, Turkey Tail and Maitake are rich in polysaccharide compounds, most notably beta glucans, that can stimulate and strongly enhance the immune system. These complex natural sugars are among some of the most potent and natural immune forces ever discovered.

Beta glucan polysaccharides lock on to specific receptor sites in the immune system, activate their healing power, thereby increasing the immune response. Polysaccharides also act as prebiotics in the microbiome helping to feed healthy probiotic bacteria in the gut.

Studies show that Turkey Tail mushroom contains a protein bound polysaccharide known as PSP (polysaccharide peptide) that increases Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus – two extensively researched species of bacteria that inoculate the gut and support the immune system from birth.

Medicinal mushrooms like Chaga, Reishi and Cordyceps are classified as adaptogens and are very effective stress relievers. These mushrooms help the body better adapt to stress, boosts antioxidant activity in the body, and lowers free radicals that drive oxidative stress and cause DNA damage and poor cell functioning.

Chaga mushroom naturally grows on birch trees and is one of the most potent antioxidants on the planet with an ORAC value many times higher than other antioxidant rich foods such as acai berry.

Lion’s Mane is a popular mushroom among students and entrepreneurs for its ability to optimise brain function. Lion’s Mane helps boost brain health by increasing nerve growth factor (NGF) in the brain, stimulating new nerve cell growth and balances the central nervous system.
