Chinese mushrooms - therapeutic use for humans and animals

One of the most frequently used medicinal mushrooms is Cordyceps. This mushroom has been used for centuries in Chinese medicine. It has a strengthening and revitalizing effect, so it's used in the therapy of many diseases using Brain Fuel products by Premicanna.

Anti-inflammatory properties

Cordyceps stimulates blood circulation and acts as an anti-inflammatory, thus improving the functioning of the circulatory system and reducing the amount of bad cholesterol (LDL form) in the blood.

Effect on libido It also increases libido by enhancing blood flow to reproductive organs and boosting hormone production. These properties are due to the presence of deoxyadenosine and D-mannitol.

Anti-cancer effect

Compounds like D-mannitol and beta-glucans found in the mushroom lead to a reduction in tumor growth. Furthermore, they stimulate the production of lymphocytes that attack cancer cells.

Improvement of lung capacity

Cordyceps improves lung efficiency thanks to beta-glucans, which provide energy. As a result, lung cells are better oxygenated, which enhances their endurance. Beta-glucans increase the amount of ATP, the energy source for muscles. Due to this property, it is used in the therapy of diseases such as bronchitis or asthma.

Combating digestive problems

Stomach ailments are affecting an increasing percentage of the population. This is related to the increasing amount of stress and the pace of daily life. We often struggle with ailments such as heartburn, hyperacidity, bloating, or intestinal problems. Many drugs only treat the symptoms, not the cause. Therefore, it's worth reaching for natural solutions like therapeutic mushrooms present in Brain Fuel Premicanna products, which will also help us fight the source of our ailments. The mushrooms we use to combat stomach ailments include:

  • Reishi - used in the treatment of heartburn;
  • Chaga - has anti-inflammatory effects, used in the treatment of Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or gastritis;
  • Hericium - strengthens and protects the mucous membrane in the intestine and stomach;
  • Cordyceps - combats stomach problems caused by stress, reduces the amount of stress hormones in the blood, e.g., adrenaline or cortisol.

How does Cordyceps work on ailments related to Premenstrual Tension Syndrome?

Many women struggle with premenstrual tension syndrome (PMS) and painful periods, which can include abdominal pain, mood swings, pain during bleeding, bloating, or irregular cycles. Cordyceps in combating PMS symptoms:

  • Helps alleviate mood swings and other emotional states;
  • Stimulates the function of sexual organs;
  • Normalizes bleeding and its regularity;
  • Stimulates hormone production by the adrenal cortex.

Regular use of Cordyceps for PMS can alleviate menstrual pain and limit mood swings. Additionally, it is used in the treatment of infertility and helps with problems with libido, impotence, or poor sperm quality. These mushrooms can therefore improve sexual activity, sensitizing genitals, and increasing satisfaction from sexual experiences.

Cordyceps as a dose of energy instead of coffee

Thanks to the beta-glucans present in it, the body increases the production of ATP, which is the main energy source for our cells. An increased amount of ATP affects overall physical performance, as it is significant for muscle cells. Therefore, it will be the perfect solution for athletes who care about increasing the body's performance. In the daily diet for many people, it will also be an ideal ingredient, which additionally increases insulin sensitivity, reducing the risk of diabetes. Moreover, thanks to this, our cells will absorb sugar from the blood faster and contribute to increasing the amount of energy and improving the overall performance of the body. So Cordyceps, which we find in Brain Fuel products, improves cell oxygenation and increases our endurance, simultaneously combating fatigue symptoms.

Can mushrooms help with rheumatism?

Rheumatism is mainly treated by slowing the progression of the disease and focusing on pain relief. It's crucial to provide the body with various minerals and vitamins through a well-balanced diet. It is essential for the body to receive ingredients with analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. Mushrooms used in rheumatism therapy regulate the immune system (inhibit excessive autoimmune response). Moreover, they show analgesic (e.g., Reishi) and anti-inflammatory effects (e.g., Coriolus). Some of them, like Shiitake, reduce the amount of uric acid in the blood, which is used in arthritis treatment. Mushrooms in the treatment of rheumatism:

  • Agaricus;
  • Reishi;
  • Coriolus;
  • Shiitake;
  • Cordyceps;
  • Maitake.

Preventing arthritis with mushrooms

Arthritis is associated with joint pain, which is age-related. Patients often struggle with stiffness of hands, shoulders, knees, hips, or fingers, and symptoms are particularly troublesome during cold and wet weather. Arthritis is a significant burden and affects the quality of everyday functioning. To combat the symptoms of this disease, a proper diet and light exercise are recommended, often additionally it is worth reducing excess weight. For older people, the best option is to deliver the right amount of nutrients to the body, and here the solution may be the use of therapeutic mushrooms such as: Reishi, Maitake, or Shiitake. These species contain a large amount of nutrients, as well as vitamins, amino acids, or minerals. Thus, these mushrooms can prevent further ossification of cartilage by strengthening connective tissue. Maitake contains provitamin D and ergosterol, which prevent osteoporosis through bone mineralization. Additionally, it supports the regeneration of bone tissue by stimulating the action of osteoblasts. Shiitake, on the other hand, contains large amounts of vitamin D, which is why it is used in the therapy of many rheumatic diseases.

Mushrooms in the treatment of overweight Overweight is one of the lifestyle diseases that affect many people. Irregular meals and a sedentary lifestyle contribute to weight gain. Overweight can cause a range of additional diseases related to the circulatory system, type II diabetes, and degeneration of joints. Most often, diets and exercises are used as solutions. Sometimes, however, we want to increase and speed up the effects, reaching additionally for various supplements. In this case, therapeutic mushrooms will prove effective, which will naturally support our body in the weight loss process. Above all, they have detoxifying properties, which will allow us to cleanse the body. Additionally, they are very nutritious, which will reduce the feeling of hunger during the application of a caloric deficit in the diet. What medicinal mushrooms can aid in the weight loss process?

  • Hericium - responsible for proper metabolism. It reduces the amount of bad cholesterol in the blood. Additionally, it is responsible for the regeneration of mucous membranes in the digestive system.
  • Maitake - reduces the deposition of fat and sugar in the liver.
  • Reishi - increases metabolism and regulates blood sugar levels. Moreover, it reduces hunger and prevents the proliferation of fatty tissue.
  • Cordyceps - it is recommended to use it in diabetes, as it has an antioxidant effect. Additionally, it speeds up the metabolism process.

What is the right amount of polysaccharides for the preparation to be effective?

Polysaccharides are the main component of mushrooms as they build their cell walls. Therefore, they will be the main ingredient of preparations made from them. Powdered products contain 0.5-3% polysaccharides, so a better production method is extraction, thanks to which we obtain remedies in which we find even 30-50% of them. According to research, the optimal concentration of polysaccharides is 30%, which gives the best therapeutic effect. With lower concentrations, the effect will not be so strong, and with too high, the extract may not contain the right amount of other components responsible for its medicinal effect. However, of course, everything depends on the type of ailment, because different types of defensive reactions of the body will be needed in the therapy of various diseases. However, it is advisable to increase the dose of the product taken, not the concentration of the extract, to benefit from the full spectrum of mushroom properties contained in them.

Mushrooms in the therapy of treating animals

Mushrooms show many therapeutic properties not only in humans but also in animals. Their action is completely safe, and side effects occur very rarely. Medicinal mushrooms can initially cause gastrointestinal complaints due to their detoxifying action. This is completely normal and harmless to the body. If such complaints arise, it is best to start therapy with a smaller dose, which we then gradually increase.

However, it should be remembered that the dose of medicinal mushrooms for each animal will be different due to breed or weight and this is a very individual matter, which is best to consult with a veterinarian. Moreover, if our pet is already taking some medication, it is worth seeking advice also in this matter. It is very important that the ingredients of the mushrooms do not interact with other active substances present in the drugs, as this could reduce the effectiveness of both preparations and additionally cause side effects. Which mushrooms can we give our pet?:

  • Coriolus - anticancer and anti-inflammatory action;
