Mushroom Complexes

Mushroom Complexes are a combination of multiple medicinal mushroom extracts that work together to promote a wide range of health benefits. These include immune boosting, brain health enhancing, mood improving and stress relieving effects. The most popular mushrooms included in these blends are Lion’s Mane, Chaga, Cordyceps and Reishi but many products offer a more extensive selection of different mushroom extracts.

These mushrooms are considered to be adaptogens, meaning that they help the body to adapt to and cope with stress. They are also known to support healthy cholesterol levels and a strong immune system, making them essential for anyone looking to maintain or boost their overall health.

Unlocking Potential: Mushroom Complexes and Their Benefits

Medicinal mushroom extracts have been used for the maintenance of physical well-being and treatment of various diseases since ancient times, especially in Asian regions. More recently, they have entered the sphere of dietary supplements and have become an integral part of complementary alternative medicine (CAM) and integrative holistic medicine.

When choosing a mushroom blend to suit your needs, look for a product that has been tested in laboratories to confirm the quality of its ingredients and the strength of its active compounds. It is also important to check the ingredient list for fillers such as starch, which can significantly lower the effectiveness of the product.

A high-quality mushroom supplement will contain a premium blend that is free from fillers, and will have been extracted using hot water. This ensures a maximum level of polysaccharides, which are the main biologically active compounds in mushrooms. The Herbs of Gold Mushroom 5 Complex for example contains a combination of Shiitake, Reishi, Cordyceps and Snow Fungus which are all sources of polysaccharides. These mushrooms are traditionally used in Chinese medicine as lung tonics and expectorants to loosen phlegm and relieve coughs.
