The most interesting nickname of the Lion’s Mane is not due to its appearance, but rather to the beneficial properties of Nature’s nutrient for the neurons. Neurons are nerve cells located in the brain. They are responsible for many important body processes and functions. With age, the effectiveness of the brain and neurons gradually diminishes. As a result, for example, memory can deteriorate. The Lion’s Mane can help with this. Studies have shown that the drug can stimulate the production of nerve growth factor (NGF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), among other things. NGF and BDNF play an important role in keeping the brain in shape.
Lion’s Mane stimulates your brain cells
Due to its special properties, the Lion’s Mane can stimulate many processes in the brain and at the same time help prevent rapid aging. Some potential benefits include improved learning ability, better memory, more focus, a clearer mind, and even recovery and reversal of cell damage. The Lion’s Mane is also a source of antioxidants and amino acids. These substances have a positive effect on physical health. As a result, the Lion’s Mane can help to strengthen the immune system, maintain blood sugar levels and improve bowel movements.
The Turkey Tail is called Trametes versicolor or Coriolus versicolor in Latin. The mushroom somewhat resembles the fan-shaped feather tail of a turkey, hence the English name Turkey Tail. In the Netherlands it is known as Elfenbankje, because of different colorful layers. The Turkey Tail not only has a wonderful appearance, but also some wonderful properties are attributed to the mushroom. Centuries ago, they were already convinced of the beneficial effects in Asia. For example, in China and Japan, the Turkey Tail was used in traditional medicine to combat various diseases. Centuries later in Asia, supported by science, they are still convinced of the medicinal properties of the Turkey Tail.
Strengthen your immune system!
It is now clear that the Turkey Tail can be very good for the body. The mushroom, for example, has many phenolic components such as flavonoids. These act as very powerful antioxidants. The substances can fight inflammation, slow down free radicals and have a detoxifying effect. The Turkey Tail also has prebiotic properties, which can support the gastrointestinal system and improve bowel movements. What the Turkey Tail is mainly known for is the presence of polysaccharide-k (PSK) and polysaccharide peptides (PSP). These substances have some promising properties that can improve the immune system and provide support for virus-related problems such as influenza, herpes and the common cold. This is because PSP can increase monocytes, which are a type of white blood cells that can fight infections. PSK in turn stimulates dendritic cells and macrophages, which can help protect the body against harmful substances, bacteria and potentially even cancer.
The Cordyceps is a mushroom with a unique story. They grow as parasites on insects. For this reason they are also called caterpillar mushroom or even caterpillar killer. There are hundreds of Cordyceps varieties, most of which cannot be grown on any basis other than an insect. This makes many of these variants very rare and expensive. Fortunately, the Cordyceps Militaris can be grown on an alternative soil. In terms of medicinal properties, this variant is not inferior to other related species and is available in the form of McMyco Cordyceps supplements. The Cordyceps Militaris is a mushroom that can have an incredibly beneficial effect on the body thanks to the substances present. The fungus contains essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals that serve as building blocks for the body.
Have more energy during your day!
What makes this mushroom so special is the high content of polysaccharides and cordycepin. These substances can be important in the fight against various illnesses or physical ailments. They can also have a positive effect on the cardiovascular system. They have the potential to stimulate the production of white blood cells, regulate blood sugar and lower LDL cholesterol. The adaptogenic properties can also have a stress-reducing effect and at the same time improve mental resilience. Cordyceps are also associated with improved physical performance. For example, the mushroom can stimulate the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which in turn can serve as an energy source for cells and muscles. It can also improve the oxygen uptake of the blood. This can combat fatigue and improve endurance. Physical performance also includes performance in bed. Cordyceps Militaris has the potential to increase libido and sex drive!
The Chaga (Nonotus obliquus) is a beneficial mushroom that is mainly found in the Northern Hemisphere. The mushroom mainly grows on beech trees and does well in cold climates such as Canada, Siberia and Northern Europe. The Chaga looks like a piece of burnt wood or coal from the outside. On the inside, however, it is orange, in combination with its beneficial effect, this has earned it the nickname black gold in Russia .
Preventional mushroom against viruses!
Chaga is nutrient rich and contains fiber, vitamin D, iron, magnesium and potassium. The Chaga also has a very high content of antioxidants. Antioxidants are very important to the body and can detect and eliminate free radicals. These free radicals are produced by the body when it is exposed to, for example, stress, air pollution or medicines. An excess of free radicals causes oxidative stress, which may lead to illness and unpleasant bodily ailments. The Chaga supplements from McMyco can support you to fight these free radicals. The Chaga mushrooms also contain beta-glucans, melanin, triterpenes and polyphenols. These substances can ensure a well-balanced immune system, fight inflammatory reactions, provide support for viral complaints and maintain blood sugar levels. The latest studies even indicate that the active substances in Chaga can provide support in the treatment of cancer. Chaga could therefore just be the black gold!
The Reishi (Ganoderma Lucidum) is a brown-red mushroom of approximately 10 to 25 centimeters. In the Netherlands we know this fungus as lacquer fungus. They mainly grow on stumps of old trees such as oak and beech. In China, the Reishi has been used and appreciated for its medicinal properties for over 2000 years. The reputation is very impressive, so they don’t call him Ling-Zhi for nothing, which means mushroom of immortality . In traditional Chinese medicine they use Ling-Zhi as a medicine for asthma, among other things. Reishi mushrooms contain different types of substances that can be of great help to the body. For example, the high content of beta-glucans can contribute to a healthy cardiovascular system, maintain blood sugar levels and lower LDL cholesterol.
Increased vitality and slower aging!
The Reishi is also rich in triterpenes including ganoderic acids. These acids are hard to find anywhere else and act as very powerful antioxidants. These antioxidants can fight free radicals and reduce oxidative stress levels. This way the body can be supported to preventively tackle cell damage or disease. Some studies even indicate that Reishi has the potential to help treat cancer. The presence of polysaccharides (beta-glucans) probably plays an important role here, just as with Lion’s Mane. Another valued property of the Reishi is its adaptogenic effect. Adaptogens can protect the body against harmful stressors (stressors). When the body is exposed to these stress factors for a long time, this can have unpleasant consequences. Fighting and restoring stress levels can increase energy levels, improve sleep and strengthen mental toughness.
