Functional Mushies for the Ladies
Mushrooms seem to be on everyone’s lips these days.
From gourmet to medicinal and even psychoactive ones.
Science is catching up on the benefits of functional mushrooms specifically, but unfortunately, science seems to be lagging in the areas of women’s sexual and reproductive health.
Based on what we mycologically know so far, 4 functional mushrooms stand out for their impressive impact on the lives of women.
They are Lion’s Mane, Chaga, Reishi, and Cordyceps
These four mushrooms are beneficial to all individuals, and for the purposes of this article, we will focus on women’s sexual, reproductive, and mental health.
Below is a breakdown of each mushroom and its individual impact, as we currently know them to be:
Lion’s Mane for brain and mood
This beautiful white toothy mushroom has been revered for centuries for its positive effects on the brain and nervous system.
For women, Lion’s Mane has been reported to have various advantages related to mental health and cognitive function, including improved memory, sharper cognitive focus, and mood enhancement.
A study performed on mice has shown us that potentially Lion’s Mane may reduce symptoms such as mood swings, and sleep disturbances, making it a valuable ally during such a transitional phase in a woman’s life.
Chaga: Antioxidant powerhouse and immune support
Chaga looks like a dark brown lump and is not very visually appealing but all is forgiven when we look into its potent antioxidant properties.
The high level of anti-oxidants contained in this mushroom is an excellent immune system enhancer. Chaga’s is adaptogenic which is supportive to a women’s menstrual cycle, and regularity and helpful in mitigating the intensity of PMS symptoms.
Reishi: Nourishing Vitality
Reishi invites us to rise up into our best selves.
Known as the mushroom of immortality, Reishi soothes our nervous system and many users report it helps them to sleep better.
When we can sleep better, everything in life is better and feels easier. Reishi is just the mushroom to help us with that.
It’s really a genius mushroom that allows for deep rest and more clean energy for us to use during the day. A total game-changing triple-win formula!
Cordyceps: For jet fuel and a pair of wings
Cordyceps is known for its energizing effects, something we learned from high-performing athletes.
Not only can Cordyceps boost physical performance and output, is also great as a post-workout supplement.
Like the four legs of a table, each of these mushrooms has something very valuable to offer. Lion’s Mane, Chaga, Reishi, and Cordyceps are unique and individual in their own right.
Their synergistic value when taken together is not yet known or studied, but it doesn’t mean it’s not there. We just haven’t found it yet.
Most of what we know about women’s health comes from anecdotal reports from individuals rather than rigorous medical research.
