    Did you know there are tons of health benefits to supplementing mushrooms? No, not that kind, although those are great too. I'm talking about Chaga, Reishi, Turkey Tail, Lions Mane, Shiitake, the list goes on. There is truly ancient wisdom to this. Mushrooms have been used in Chinese herbal medicine for thousands of years. The uses range from immunological and digestive issues, to nootropic or in other words - brain health. There are many studies that can be found showing the evidence and potential of these functional fungi. Want to learn more?
