Medicinal Mushrooms, Ancient Healing for the Modern World


The use of medicinal mushrooms for healing and health enhancement goes back millennia in eastern cultures but relatively little is known about their properties and benefits in the west. Until recently that is, as health scientists have taken a serious interest in their uses and beneficial properties. We’ve just taken on a range in the form of dried mushroom powders and, as we’re keen to recommend them where appropriate, have been doing our research. The Company’s called Om Organic Mushroom Nutrition and they’re based in California. Their remit is to organically grow and minimally process (low temperature drying and powdering) the most potent medicinal mushrooms on the planet. They sell them individually and in combinations. Here’s some information I found on the web on just three of them Reishi, Chaga and Cordyceps.

Reishi is one of the most researched herbal substances on the planet. Terry Willard’s book “Reishi: Mushroom of Spiritual Potency and Medical Marvel” sums up for us what numerous Modern Scientific Studies have revealed about Reishi.

Product Review – Pukka ManPlus

Product Review Pukka ManPlus

ManPlus is one of Pukka’s unique range of supplements based on the venerable Ayurvedic medicine system from India. As a ‘male tonic’ I think it has so much to offer. The combination of ingredients strengthen, nourish and rejuvenate. They offer circulatory stimulant and heart tonic properties, reduce inflammation and alleviate stress. Which man couldn’t benefit from that kind of boost. Low vitality, low libido, prostate inflammation, erectile dysfunction, frequent urination, relentless stress and adrenal exhaustion can all be combatted by its impressive list of ingredients.

Among them are :

Turmeric and Aloe Vera for their anti inflammatory properties.
Red Ginseng and Hawthorn for energy and heart tonic properties.
Spirulina, a microscopic algae to offer nutrition including iron and b vitamins.
Cinnamon and ginger to stimulate the circulation.
Cordyceps, a mushroom to improve oxygen availability and rejuvenate the reproductive system.
Broccoli and cabbage seed sprouts which can have a positive effect on prostate swelling.
Pomegranate and Holy Basil which are potent antioxidants.
Maca is a reputed aphrodisiac, thought to increase sperm production and motility.

Featured Product Red Ginseng

ManPlus has a combination of ingredients to nourish and rejuvenate the male body including the heart and the reproductive and hormone systems, to reduce inflammation while boosting the circulation and kick starting the libido. It makes for an effective all round male tonic.
