Medicinal Mushrooms – Natural Healing Winter Park
Many Mushrooms, such as Shiitake, Reishi, Maitake, have known theraputic benefits in the body, primarily related to the immune system. They are rich in polysaccharides called glucans which have the ability to enhance natural killer (NK) cell activity. NK cells are the part of the immune system that may have an anticancer benefit. they also produce antimicrobial activity, making them work like a mild antibiotic. They provide additional nutrients such as Vit. C, B, Calcium, and fiber….
