Humans have used mushrooms for their nutritional and therapeutic effects for thousands of years. They are considered a ‘functional food’ and could play a significant role in improving our health through diet.
Many different types of mushrooms have beneficial properties. Here at VidaCap, we have selected some of the best-studied varieties for our supplements, including reishi, chaga, turkey tails, lion’s mane, and cordyceps.
Research has shown these species are rich in compounds called beta glucans, which support healthy immune function. Since humans cannot produce beta glucans themselves, consuming mushrooms could provide an effective way to enhance day-to-day wellness and vitality.
Each type of mushroom also has unique benefits with the potential to enhance physical and mental wellbeing.
