Functional Mushrooms for Mental and Physical Health: What You Need to Know
by Alex Heining on Nov 29, 2022
Functional mushrooms have been tied to mental health support and other strong health factors in your daily life. On top of that, they are also strong for stabilizing your physical output and supporting you pushing your daily routine to new heights.
However, it isn't just that clear and simple on how to use them to support your health. Today, our team at Troomy has been working on crafting blends that use these mushrooms to create reliable functionality in your day that boosts your productivity and helps you feel like your best self.
While this guide won't be comprehensive, it's a good starting point to get introduced to the functionality of mushrooms. Here's what our team's found and how functional mushrooms translate to impacting both physical and mental health.
How are Functional Mushrooms Going to Impact My Health?
Immune System Support
A stronger immune system creates a more fruitful life. The more self-reliant your body can become with its regulation of sickness, the better.
This can tie into better physical performance, as well as improving your mood as you avoid sickness with better reliability.
Fighting inflammation's tough to get relief from when your skin's irritated or you're having some kind of reaction. Luckily with functional mushrooms, you get a natural boost of support to fight inflammation and keep your body balanced.
Antioxidants are always good to keep the body's functionality regulated. Strong vitamin and nutrients from the foundation of most functional mushrooms can supplement this well, like Turkey Tail or Cordyceps for example.
Brain health is one of the strongest links to almost every functional mushroom. With Lion's Mane leading the pack, you can get quick support in the office, the classroom, or anywhere you need that extra kickstart of focus.
Now, not every functional mushroom is going to be able to target all of these areas. You have to find which one is right for your needs. Take a look at our functional mushrooms here to learn a bit more about the advanced details of each mushroom's makeup.
Can Mushrooms Support Mental Health?
While they're tied to mental health support, there isn't a clear-cut benefit that you can directly link to mushrooms with mental health. However, they are linked to benefiting brain health and supporting natural body health that'll give your body a better chance at protecting itself from stresses and other factors in your health and wellness.
Support, Not Solve
Mushrooms aren't miracle foods. You aren't just going to magically wake up and feel completely different using mushrooms. Instead, they offer a lifestyle shift that can naturally boost your productivity, mood, sleep habits, and more. These support systems inherently impact your mental health and can reroute you to be more successful.
Don't Use in Place of Medications
If you're currently using medications for support and other medically-proven relievers, do not replace them with mushrooms. Adaptogenic mushrooms are intended primarily for functional support, and can be beneficial to brain health. But they are supposed to only be used in addition to what you are already doing for yourself rather than replacing a routine. Think of them as supplements.
How Can I Use Functional Mushrooms Best?
Many people that struggle with mental health can suffer from mental exhaustion which is a targeted area of support for most functional mushrooms. Take Lion's Mane and Cordyceps for example.
On top of targeting better energy, some functional mushrooms are used for improved sleep as well. Reishi, for example, can help you stay on track with sleeping regularly and getting restful sleep.
Focusing in the office or classroom is tough, especially if you have trouble with a distracted mind or are just trying to keep yourself on task all day. Not to worry. With higher productivity in your everyday workload, you can make significant strides to getting to a better place mentally. Releasing some stress simply comes through getting through the motions of the day, and functional mushrooms can support that.
Functional Mushroom Blends
Raw mushrooms are a good place to start if you're looking for a particular type of mushroom. These will eliminate any outside factors and really just let you hone in one set of support areas that you're looking for.
Additionally, raw mushrooms allow you to be versatile with your recipes and adding them into your diet. If you want to make a mushroom-powered dessert, for example, you can do that.
The tough part is going to be keeping them fresh and all the prep time that's going to add to your cooking.
Mushroom Powders for Coffees and Teas
If you're going for a quicker route with half the hassle, coffees and teas aren't bad. They can be quickly blended up and with a few sweeteners, really strong options for keeping you feeling your best self throughout the day.
Although, there's still going to be some work on your end. Getting the blend just right can be troublesome, as these often come out tasting earthy and not very exciting. Sometimes, you might even dread having them, like a really heavy juicing cleanse. That's where gummies can be an excellent alternative.
Mushroom gummies are the tried and true method to have the best of both worlds. Zero prep time, great flavor, and all the same support. Additionally, they offer a range of different flavors and blends to be perfectly suited to your needs.
For example, say you want to get a little extra sense of Calm with your anxiety and stress through the day. Reishi is a great mushroom to look to for support, but can be cumbersome to add to your lunch or dinner plans. Instead, pop a quick gummy and stay on the go without setting aside any extra time.
On top of all that, mushroom gummies are extremely wallet-friendly, and its easier than ever to get started!
