Functional mushrooms, also known as medicinal mushrooms or adaptogenic mushrooms, are a group of fungi that have been used for their health benefits in traditional medicine practices for centuries. These mushrooms are different from the common edible mushrooms that are commonly found in grocery stores, as they contain unique bioactive compounds that have been shown to have a range of potential health benefits.
There are over 100 species of functional mushrooms, with some of the most popular ones including reishi, chaga, lion's mane, cordyceps, and turkey tail. Each type of functional mushroom contains a different combination of compounds that can have various effects on the body.
Many functional mushrooms have been studied for their immune-boosting properties, as well as their potential to improve cognitive function, reduce inflammation, and support the body's natural stress response. Some species of functional mushrooms have also been shown to have anti-tumor properties and may help in cancer prevention and treatment.
