Packed with immune-rejuvenating beta glucan, we use medicinal mushrooms routinely for anything relating to immune resilience. We recommended them for COVID support, for example; and we always use them in our cancer patients and cognitive decline patients. Mushrooms are dense with minerals, vitamin D, and some methyl donor nutrients—especially shiitake, which has a nice amount of folate. One study looking at reishi mushrooms in an animal model of Alzheimer’s disease showed that it improved learning and memory, improved neuronal function, resolved brain atrophy, and upregulated DNA methylation enzymes in brain tissue. When taking medicinal mushrooms, the only caveat is to make sure you’re taking the “fruiting body,” not grain-based mycelium, which should be clear on the label. If it isn’t, look for another brand or call the company.

Dosage: 1000 – 2000 mg per day.
