Research on Reishi Mushroom
for Anxiety & Fatigue
Chronic anxiety is debilitating
Anxiety and fatigue can be debilitating conditions that affect our daily lives. Luckily, there are natural remedies that can help! One such remedy is reishi mushroom, which has been known for thousands of years as the "Herb of Immortality & Spiritual Potency" and revered for it's many benefits. Many people have heard of reishi for its well-established immune system benefits, but this remarkable herb does so much more than that.
What does the research say?
A study published in the Evidence-Based Complimentary and Alternative Medicine Journal split 48 breast cancer patients into two groups. All 48 were undergoing endocrine therapy. Half took a placebo, while the other half took 1 gram of reishi spores three times daily for 4 weeks.
After four weeks, the women in the study reported better overall wellbeing, less fatigue, less anxiety, less depression and better quality of life. Blood tests also revealed that immune markers of Cancer Related Fatigue (TNF-a and IL-6) were lower.
All about those Reishi spores
Reishi mushroom spores are the reproductive cells of the reishi mushroom. These spores can be used to grow new reishi mushrooms, making them a key part of the fungi life cycle. They are released through via the pores on the underside of the head of the mushroom and thus released into the environment. Or, as in the case of our reishi, captured for you to enjoy!
But there's a little problem- spores are basically impossible for humans to digest due to their hard outer shells. So we put them through a high pressure process to crack the shells and make all the amazing compounds inside accessible to our bodies.
In some ways, spores are the most potent part of the mushroom. In addition to being rich in polysaccharides, reishi spores contain three times more adaptogenic triterpenes than the fruiting body of the mushroom.
Here at Addictive Wellness, we combine a dual extract of the Reishi fruiting body with double cel wall cracked spores in a 50/50 combination to create what we feel is the most powerful, well-rounded Reishi product.
If you're looking for a natural way to reduce anxiety and improve your energy levels, reishi mushroom may be worth trying!
