Did you know human DNA is closer to mushroom DNA than to plants’? So, we absorb, heal, regenerate our cells and grow much faster consuming mushrooms than any plants. And there’s a reason for the wide variety of mushrooms and fungi available to us – we need to thrive!
Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) Ling Zhi, Mannentake, “The Mushroom of Immortality”
There are three specific compounds that are essential to Reishi’s powerful antioxidant and antiaging effects:
- Polysaccharides have anticancer effects based on their ability to prevent abnormal blood vessel formation, and to boost immune system function.40,42
- Triterpenes protect the liver, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, prevent platelet clumping that leads to heart attack and stroke, fight allergic responses triggered by histamine, and also possess anticancer activity.42
- Ganoderma lucidum peptide is a unique protein that has remarkably potent antioxidant characteristics that are still being unraveled.43
But what makes Reishi mushroom beneficial to so many varied aspects of your health is its actions on many different targets in your body. The actions triggered by Reishi mushrooms produce important changes that may contribute to their promotion of longevity. Reishi extracts are known to:
- Protect cellular DNA from oxidant damage that causes aging and cancer
- Protect mitochondrial DNA and the mitochondria themselves from oxidant damage that weakens their energy-producing abilities and makes them inefficient, another major cause of aging.
- Increase levels and activity of a large suite of natural intracellular antioxidant molecules, resulting in reduced oxidation of cell membranes and organelles that lead to aging and its related diseases
- Protect kidney tubule cells from oxidant damage that leads to kidney failure.49
- Increase expression of a key longevity gene and promote an increased life span
Several studies have shown that Reishi is one of the most powerful mushrooms with regard to antioxidant characteristics. Reishi mushrooms boost total antioxidant capacity, an important measure of the vigor with which they fight oxidant damage.
Shiitake mushrooms contain the antioxidant L-ergothioneine, which helps prevent cell breakdown and helps exfoliate the skin. They enhance the immune system, are anti-inflammatory, and have antioxidant, antiviral and antibacterial properties.
Shiitake’s anti-inflammatory properties help improve vitality and also encourage faster skin renewal and increase skin elasticity.
Shiitake mushrooms, as a rich source of kojic acid, are used to brighten the skin, and fade sunspots and acne scars.
Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinensis) Dong Chong Xia Cao
Cordycept can improve physical abilities, endurance and stamina partially because they boost the body’s supply of ATP, one of the primary sources of energy during exercises. Cordyceps contain adenosine, a type of nucleic acid that is a component needed to make ATP. It is found that higher production of ATP helped athletes keep up with intense workouts and extend the length of time they could stay active at a high level.
Birch Polypore (Piptoporus betulinus) – Anti-aging, Anti-melanoma agent
Enokitake (Flammulina vilutipes) Anti-aging, Helps you lose body fat in your gut, Prevent constipation and normalize bowel movements, Promote metabolism
Zhu Ling (Polyporus umbellatus) – anti-viral, anti-aging, fights osteoporosis and bone loss, chronic bouts of diarrhea, bodybuilding, improve strength, lose extra fat, and build muscle. Contain Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) which is a hormone that is developed in the adrenal gland
e the fluid balance in the body.
A form of the tricholoma mushroom is the matsutake. This is a meaty mushroom with a zesty flavor that lends itself well to steaming or grilling, and it pairs nicely with chicken or many kinds of fish.
Modern medicine found these mushrooms to be excellent sources of proteins, vitamins and minerals. They are full of vitamins A, B6, C and also thiamine, niacin and riboflavin and also contain plenty of minerals such as: potassium, sodium, iron, copper, calcium and phosphorus. Copper is important for many different biochemical reactions in the body and also for the production of red blood cells, which makes these mushrooms valuable. Potassium found in high amounts in matsutake mushrooms is responsible for the healthy heart and muscles and provide the fluid balance in the body.
These mushrooms are completely without cholesterol and contain just traces of fat, and because of that they are considered to be very healthy.
Matsutake mushrooms are proven to be effective fighting different cancers. Many medications are used to treat cancerous changes in the body but all of them affect the healthy tissue to some extent, causing serious side effects. If these anti-cancer medications kill cancer cells they will most certainly kill some of the healthy cells in the body, because the drugs can’t differentiate between healthy and cancer cells. Matsutake mushrooms are believed to be a natural anti-cancer remedy, that doesn’t have unwanted side effects.
Another meaty-flavored mushroom, T. albuminosus can be consumed without cooking. Whether eaten cooked or raw, it has a crunchy texture and may be boiled, grilled, steamed, or added to soup.
Called the tiger milk mushroom, L. rhinocerotis is closely related to reishi mushrooms. It is used in medicinal practice in Malaysia and is often sliced and boiled before consumption.
Also known as the oyster mushroom, this is one of the more common varieties on this list. Pleurotus is used in several Asian cuisines as a stand-alone dish or in soups and stir-fry meals.
