Did You Say 6 Mushrooms and One Introspective Compound?!
Not too long ago, we introduced you to the wonderful world of mushrooms. Today, it’s all about the mushrooms behindMind’s Eye Introspection, our plant medicine nootropic/microdosing supplement. Find out why we love the 6 mushrooms in our super stack! Lion’s Mane, reishi, chaga, agarikon, cordyceps and turkey tail plus one 100mg introspective compound!
THE MEDICINAL PROPERTIES OF MUSHROOMS
All these mushrooms confer powerful mental and physical wellness benefits which, when combined with synergistic herbs such as tulsi, sea moss and turmeric, hone the senses and sharpen the intellect. To get a peek into how it’s done, let’s find out how our fungal friends do it.
Named after the stringlike growths emanating from its base, lion’s mane is known for its cognitive-enhancing properties. A study which paired injured rodents to a control group, for instance, found quicker nerve repair than the control group, suggesting neurogeneration.
Studies have shown that lion's mane extracts called erinacines can potentially help to protect the brain from age-related damage, as well as improve cognitive function. Lion's mane is also thought to possess anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It’s famously used in Paul Stamets’s microdosing stack alongside niacin for its potentially neurogenerative effects. Plus it’s a delicacy amongst gourmets who compare its taste to shrimp and lobster.
The medicinal value of this old growth forest dweller is hardly questioned. In his book Mycelium Running, Stamets discusses how extracts from this massive, ribbed fungus (executed during the same Project Bioshield mission we discussed in Part I) showed strong activity against viruses from the pox family, so watch out, monkeypox!
Studies on agarikon and its mycelia have also illustrated its anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties, making it an ideal choice for those looking to boost their immune system.
Most know this little bugger from the memorable way it propagates: infect a carpenter ant, force it to climb up above the canopy, sprout from its head and spread its spores far and wide, where the cycle begins anew.
However, for humans, its effects are far more salutary. Cordyceps has been used to help increase stamina and endurance, and recent studies have shown that it can also help to improve exercise performance. Additionally, cordyceps also possesses anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Turkey tail, so named because of the colorful gradients on its fanlike shape, has been remarked upon for its use in mycoremediation projects, cleaning up toxins like organophosphates and mercury from blighted regions of our planet.
Turns out it can also bolster a human’s immune response as well. Additionally, turkey tail has also been researched for anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties and is often used over-the-counter as a gut health remedy.
Together with red reishi and chaga (to learn more about their benefits, check out Part I), Mind’s Eye Introspection helps pull your body and mind together for whatever task is at hand. All of us have learned the hard way how important it is to treat the whole system when embracing full-spectrum health.
Mushrooms give our Mind’s Eye capsules the added reach needed to access optimal wellness through microdosing. We’re glad to have finally discovered what was under our feet all along, and to unite it, as it always has been, with all the tools nature has given us to heal.
CHAGA & REISHI Rounding this off and packing a one two punch are the adaptogenic wonders of a potent blend of Chaga and Reishi mushrooms, key ingredients in our Mind's Eye capsule.
Chaga, often referred to as the "King of Medicinal Mushrooms," boasts a rich array of antioxidants and betulinic acid, which not only support overall wellness but also fortify the body's defense mechanisms. Its unique properties have long been celebrated in Siberian folklore for vitality and longevity.
On the other hand, Reishi, the "Mushroom of Immortality" in traditional Chinese medicine, is renowned for its adaptogenic qualities. Not only is it packed with potent antioxidants to combat oxidative stress, but its rich polysaccharides content serves as a natural energy booster. What truly sets Reishi apart, though, is its unique connection to the rhizosphere and its ability to maintain balance and homeostasis within our internal physiology.
These qualities help in balancing the body's response to stress and fostering mental clarity. Furthermore, Reishi's triterpenoids and polysaccharides synergistically work to enhance the immune system, promoting overall health and vitality.
Together, these power-packed mushrooms in the Mind's Eye capsule create synergy with the introspective compound and offer a harmonious blend of cognitive, immunological, and rejuvenative benefits, making it a perfect companion for those seeking holistic well-being.
