These are NOT the same mushrooms you put on your pizza or add to your sauteed veggie dish! The cellular constituents of medicinal mushrooms are said to profoundly improve the quality of human health. Early on, indigenous peoples discovered these plants were exceptionally good at preventing and curing infection. Although most are too tough to eat, native peoples discovered that when boiled, a rich tea with health strengthening effects and antimicrobial properties could be made. This is exactly why I decided to create my Bone Broth Boosters – carefully selected powdered blends of dried, organic medicinal mushrooms and other herbs to easily stir right into your hot mug of daily bone broth!

We use chaga, reishi, maitake, and other medicinal mushrooms in our Boosters. Now, read about our superstar mushrooms: Chaga, perhaps the most healing medicinal mushroom, increases the body’s immune response, promotes cellular health and provides powerful antioxidant protection. Chaga contains an amazing 215 phytonutrients. Initial studies suggest that the betulinic acid in Chaga supports the body’s ability to eliminate toxins while also stimulating the nervous system. Cordyceps, sought out as an aphrodisiac and sexual tonic, is specially useful in alleviating fatigue, enhancing physical endurance and mental acuity. These medicinal mushrooms help rid the body of free radical activity and have displayed a capacity to lower bad LDL cholesterol as they raise the good HDL cholesterol level. Maitake mushrooms have been used by traditional healers in Asia for thousands of years. Researchers in Japan have been studying the effects of Maitake mushrooms on the immune system, cancer, blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Maitake is touted to have anti-tumor, anti-diabetic and anti-viral properties. Red Reishi’s medicinal use dates back over 4,000 years. In ancient China, Reishi was referred to as the Mushroom of Immortality and eaten exclusively by royalty due to its rarity. This medicinal mushroom enhances the body’s immune system, improves blood circulation and is excellent for many heart conditions. Shiitake, native to China, have been eaten for nearly 6,000 years. Considered the elixir of life, during the Ming Dynasty, they were reserved for the emperor and his family. Studies are showing these nutrient-dense medicinal mushrooms strengthen the immune system and are beneficial for those individuals infected with HIV. Cinnamon (not a mushroom) has the highest anti-oxidant strength of all the foods in nature and its active principles are known to have anti-oxidant, anti-diabetic, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory qualities. Cinnamaldehyde has been found to prevent platelet clogging inside the blood vessels and thereby may help prevent stroke and coronary artery diseases. Ashwagandha stimulates neuro-transmitter pathways in the brain which may enhance memory and other cognitive processes. Research has also found that Ashwagandha increases the levels of three naturally powerful antioxidants: superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase. Astragalus root is one of the most popular tonic herbs used in the Orient. Some consider it to be a tonic superior to ginseng for younger people. Astragalus is a powerful adaptogenic herb and has an amazing ability to strengthen the immune system. Ho Shou Wu (not a mushroom) is an extremely important herb in the Chinese tonic system. It is China’s most renowned longevity herb and has acquired a broad reputation as a youth preserver, rejuvenator and sexual tonic. Its strength comes from its remarkable ability to cleanse the body by cleaning the kidney and liver, which in turn clean the blood. Agarikon: In 65 A.D. in Materia Medica,the first known herbal medical manual, the Greek physician Dioscorides described Agarikon as the elixir of long life. In ancient Greece, Agarikon was used for treating respiratory illnesses, night sweats and tuberculosis. This ancient mushroom demonstrates strong anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. Lions’ Mane mushrooms are drawing the attention of researchers for their nerve-regenerative properties. These are not your ordinary-looking gilled mushrooms. Instead, lion’s mane display cascading spines. This nutritious mushroom is roughly 20 percent protein and tastes a bit like seafood. Turkey Tail: For hundreds of years, these mushrooms have been used to treat various diseases in Asia, Europe and North America. Though, most likely, our ancestors knew of their medicinal value long before it was recorded, we know medicinal tea was enjoyed as early as the 15th century, during the Ming Dynasty in China. Turmeric’s (not a mushroom) main active ingredient is curcumin, which has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant! Black Pepper’s (not a mushroom) key compound is piperine. It is akin to capsaicin in chili and curcumin in turmeric. Black pepper enhances the bio-availability of turmeric, which is why it’s an ingredient in the Stamina and Power Boosters.
