MUSHROOMS = ANTIOXIDANTS

You probably read in a lot of articles that certain foods are rich in antioxidants and that is correct. But here’s the good news! You don’t need to stick to fruits and vegetables if you want to eat something rich in antioxidants.

Antioxidants are chemicals that fight the process of cell oxidation in your body. It fights free radicals that damages your cells making your body less susceptible to illness and prevents your body from aging. Of all food substances on earth, mushrooms (especially Chaga) have the highest ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) values.

Penn State researchers led by Joy Dubost, PhD confirmed that mushrooms are better source of antioxidant ergothioneine than fruits and vegetables. What is ergothioneine? It is a naturally occurring amino acid that is made in few organisms like Actinobacteria, Cyanobacteria and certain fungi (like mushrooms 😉).



Traditional Chinese herbalist and indigenous cultures use mushroom as tonic herbs that protect DNA from free-radicals, support cell regeneration and normal cell growth. It has proven its effectiveness that until this point in time, there are still herbalists that use mushroom as tonics.

Other than traditional mushroom tonics, the demand for fresh mushroom for cooking and powdered mushrooms is increasing. One famous takeaway is the benefit of diminishing the negative effects of caffeine in tea and coffee by adding ½ tsp of powdered mushroom per serving.



If you have kids or if you personally don’t like sliced mushrooms, using
100% pure organic powdered mushroom can do the trick for you. It is super dissolvable and you can use it to add to your coffee, tea, soup, stew, egg dishes, meatloafs, pasta, dough for pastries. You can literally mix it with anything.

The flavour? Some claim it has a light chocolate flavour, some claim it is a little like Brewers Yeast. Some prefer it neat, others prefer it blended. The choice is yours!
