Why gut health matters:
Maintaining a healthy gut is important for overall health.
The gut is home to trillions of bacteria, which play an important role in digestion and keeping the immune system functioning properly. When the gut becomes imbalanced, it can lead to a variety of health problems.
Science is also increasingly showing that gut health doesn't just affect your gut - the brain-gut connection means gut health has real impacts on your cognition, mood, and more.
Reishi and Gut Health
Reishi's studied impact on gut health comes from both anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties.
Studies, like this one on Crohn's Patients, have shown the anti-inflammatory effects of Reishi at work. Inflammation can impact many parts of our bodies.
Studies, like this one, note the popularity of Reishi as a gastric cancer supplement.
Lion's Mane and Gut Health
Lion's Mane has been shown to reduce ulcers.
It's also a possible supplement for inflammatory bowel disease and increasing healthy gut bacteria:
“...we demonstrated that H. erinaceus extracts could promote the growth of beneficial gut bacteria and improve the host immunity in vivo IBD model, which shows clinical potential in relieving IBD by regulating gut microbiota and immune system.”
Turkey Tail and Gut Health
Turkey Tail, a very well-studied mushroom supplement, contains prebiotics that help nourish the good gut bacteria we want more of.
This is due to the presence of polysaccharopeptide (PSP) in Turkey Tail: In this study, it was reported that "PSP led to clear and consistent microbiome changes consistent with its activity as a prebiotic."
When initially taking love mushrooms I was a bit of a skeptic, but I’m so excited that I was quickly proven wrong. My combination of Reishi, turkey tail, and lions mane has made more of an impact than I could’ve asked for. Since starting the routine, my rosacea flareups have all but disappeared. I’m also a chronic migraine sufferer, and have seen a noted decrease in the frequency of migraines. This has left me with less brain fog during the day, and more ability to get sh** done. I love Love Mushrooms.
I was already taking LM Cordyceps for energy, and then my doctor found a mole that’s suspicious. So I started taking Turkey Tail as I wait for more news. Giving 5 stars for the price and ingredients (I researched them a lot) and service.”
My doctor suggested adding Turkey Tail to my daily routine as a cancer inhibitor. I'm still doing other treatments. I can't give 5 stars because I can't feel anything (which is normal), but I know the research is there and Love Mushrooms was great to buy from and I would buy again. So I made it 4 stars.
"I teach all day, 5 days a week. I need energy, and I don't want to put chemicals in my body. I'm loving what this Cordyceps is doing for my energy at work."
