What are Mushrooms?
Mushrooms are the spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus that typically has a stem, cap, and gills. They are extensively used in cooking, most notably in Asian and European cuisines. Interestingly enough, they are considered neither a meat nor a vegetable but have been referred to as the “meat” of the vegetable world.
Mushrooms have long been thought to contain wellness properties.** Most notably in Chinese practices, mushroom varieties such as shiitake, maitake, and reishi mushrooms have been included in not only culinary practices but also in herbal health practices. Compounds such as Polysaccharides, lentinan and eritadenine have been found useful for supporting immune health.** Certain kinds of mushrooms, including maitake, also possess antioxidant activity against cell-damaging free radicals.**
Mushroom supplements use concentrated extracts from various types of mushrooms that have long been prized for their wellness properties dating back to ancient Chinese herbal traditions.** PipingRock’s Mushroom supplements feature concentrated extracts that come in easy-to-swallow quick release capsules for easy absorption.
Directions for Use
