Medicinal Mushroom Super Heroes
Here’s a quick lesson to get you started—
Cordyceps (pronounced ‘cord-a-ceps’):
Cordyceps will help protect the lungs and oxygenate the entire body. Good for diabetics!
—Strongly recommended for this Covid-19 infection before, during, and after.
Next up —
Reishi (pronounced ree-shee or rye-shi):
Reishi will help support mood and balance stress as the ultimate adaptogen during these trying times.
Reishi also helps support brain health.
It is said to reduce and prevent the combined effects of neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s, etc.
It has also been shown to prevent cancer related tumor growth.
Next up —
Turkey Tail —this is excellent for immune function.
People who take it often report being exposed to someone who is sick, and never getting it or taking it after exposure and being ‘cleared’ by morning…
There are other medicinal mushrooms, but these are our top 3 picks to get you started.
New to mushroom shopping?

When it comes to mushrooms, you can take them as a tea, which I don’t think is strong enough —you can have them as a powder, mixed in broths or warm water. Or you can take them as a tincture. I think it might be ideal to double up on them as a tincture and a powder, but you can just do one if you like.

Mushroom Tincture Set
Which ones would I order!?!
I’d probably stick with Real Mushrooms, but it might be cost-prohibitive for most. In that case, you can purchase from Starwest and Mountain Rose and just tincture your own or use their powders! I will update this article in the future with more mushrooms.
