While our work & living environments, diets, etc. may have toxic hazards that we can’t always perceive or are simply out of our individual control, we have the capability to take hold of what we put in our bodies and make sure they are medicinal and nutritionally rich. Mushrooms are a powerful tool in accomplishing this. Anti-cancer, anti-diabetic, anti-allergic, anti-arthritic, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, anti-fatigue, prebiotic, immune system boosting are just some of the terms you will see. If any of those are something you need strengthening in in your life, medicinal mushrooms are worth exploring.
