Chaga mushrooms : The Dynamic Brain Boosting | Mushrooms for Human Health

Mushrooms have been getting a lot of hype lately in the wellness community. What’s so special about them that you can’t get from just plant-based foods? Hint, mushrooms aren’t plants, and they’ve got their own set of unique, nutrient-dense compounds.

1.Immune boosting

Extracts of Chaga mushrooms were discovered to strengthen both the innate and adaptive immune system, by stimulating macrophage cell activity and increasing the number of CD-4 helper T cells. This mushroom has also been proven to reduce inflammation in the digestive system, which can help to maintain the integrity of the stomach and intestinal cell lining.

2.Antimicrobial and anticancer properties

Chaga mushrooms have also been shown to inhibit H. pylori (the bacteria responsible for stomach ulcers), harmful fungi (candida), and even inhibit and kill cancer cells in vitro and in vivo. 

3.Enhancing your gut microbiome

The polysaccharides found in Chaga mushrooms act as food (prebiotics) for your gut bacteria, strengthening the community of good bacteria. By feeding the good bacteria in your gut, you are indirectly benefiting your brain, since gut bacteria are heavily responsible for influencing the health of the gut-brain-axis.

4.Blood sugar control

Suffering from diabetes or neuropathic pain associated with it? Chaga mushrooms were shown to reduce blood glucose levels, increase insulin levels, and reduce neuropathic pain in diabetic rats through a mechanism of antioxidant activity. 

5.Neuroprotective properties

The biggest benefit that Chaga mushrooms can provide for your health is from its ability to protect against neurodegenerative disease and memory-decline as a result of aging.

Not only can chaga boost your overall mental function and heighten the capacity to focus, but it also exhibits neuroprotective effects against dementia. How does this fungus achieve all of these abilities? Through the action of two special classes of bioactive molecules, hericenones, and erinacines.  

Chaga can also play an active role in fighting off hard-to-treat viruses like HIV and Hepatitis C. And most of all, studies are very promising to show that the Chaga mushroom is an effective anti-cancer agent against many different cancer types (including brain cancer), helping to reduce cancer cell growth and enhance the immune system to fight off existing cancer cells.

What is the major problems in mushroom cultivation?

Problems and solutions in the cultivation of the mushroom including: a) Mycelium fails to form Improper initiation strategy.  Solutions : consult parameter of growth. Alter moisture, temperature, light, carbon dioxide, etc.  Note : If the substrate is too moist, decrease moisture b) Chlorinated or contaminated water.  Solutions :  Use activated charcoal water filters to eliminate chemical contaminants or any other ways of simple or appropriate technology. c) Bad substrate.  Solutions : Check substrate. Spread the substrate and remix the substrate, package again, make sure all raw materials are good and fresh.   Note : It is necessary to pasteurize immediately after bagging otherwise fermentation gas will slow down the rate of growth of mycelium or stop mycelium growth. d) Bad pasteurization.  Solutions : Check method of pasteurization. Release all air and make sure there is continuous steam before starting pasteurization for a period of 3h. e) The substrate in the bag is too hot when i

Oyster mushroom vs button mushroom nutrition | Nutritional comparison between oyster and button mushrooms

Oyster mushrooms are beloved the world over for their delicate texture and mild, savory flavor.  Oyster mushrooms are more expensive than white button mushrooms but less so than rarer mushrooms like morels, and take little prep since they can be used whole or chopped.                                Oyster: “These are low in calories and rich in fiber, protein, selenium [which may help prevent cancer], niacin [aka, vitamin B3] and riboflavin [aka, vitamin B2].Oyster mushrooms also contain an active compound called benzaldehyde, which has potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Additionally, research shows oyster mushrooms may significantly reduce blood glucose levels. They have also been shown to help lower cholesterol levels.”    White Button: White button mushrooms represent 90 percent of the total mushrooms consumed. “They’re a good source of potassium, B vitamins, calcium, phosphorus [which supports bone and teeth health] and iron. They also contain selenium, a trace
