The active ingredients in medicinal mushrooms stimulate the body’s immune system, inhibiting the formation, growth and spread of tumours without side effects.
Medicinal mushrooms are a type of mushroom long used by traditional Far Eastern healers for their immune-boosting properties, which can be used to treat a variety of diseases.
These medicinal mushrooms have special properties and provide the body with the necessary nutrients: vitamins, minerals and proteins. These compounds are essential for the body’s energy production and the proper functioning of cells. Each fungus has different beneficial properties. The most important for us are those that can be used to fight cancer.
More and more attention is being paid to the study of them worldwide. The work is made easier by the fact that medicinal mushrooms have been used for thousands of years. So there is little fear of unexpected, unforeseen side effects.
Some natural plant-derived active ingredients, special, unique polysaccharides found in them, have already been approved as anti-tumour medicines in some countries (e.g. Japan).
The specific polysaccharides are able to, among other things, cut off the blood supply to tumour cells and activate the tumour-killing functions of NK and phagocytes, increase insulin sensitivity and reduce insulin levels, thus promoting the healing of patients.
