Mushrooms against Cancer
Updated: Jul 9, 2020
Great summary by world famous physician, Andrew Weil, M.D.
We need more research but Dr. Weil suggests two of our mushrooms to cancer patients for their proven immune-enhancing and anti-cancer effects. These should be in everyone's daily diet routine!!
"Maitake (Grifola frondosa) is an edible mushroom known in the U.S. as "hen of the woods" because in appearance it resembles the fluffed tail feathers of a nesting hen. In addition to its anti-cancer, anti-viral and immune-enhancing properties, maitake may also help reduce blood pressure and blood sugar.
Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) is too bitter to eat but is widely available in teabags, capsules and liquid extracts. Animal studies have shown that reishi improves immune function and inhibits the growth of some malignant tumors; it is also a natural anti-inflammatory agent."
Great to see him promoting the exact mushrooms in our product of Infinimin®!!
