Mushroom Blend - ENRICHD 7

Medicinal mushrooms, immune support, mushroom supplements, blog, chaga, lions mane, reishi, turkey tail, health benefits

Are mushrooms, specifically a mushroom blend drink, good for health and the immune system?

Even though most functional mushrooms have thousands of years known use (chaga being an exception), the western world has recently become obsessed with mushrooms. It is with good reason and good science. Mushroom blends, i.e a combination of numerous mushrooms might be the right choice for you because the blend will give you a broad range of immune supporting compounds, vs a single mushroom offering higher concentrations of fewer though also powerful compounds.

The reason you'd choose an individual mushroom over a mushroom blend is to get a higher amount of the specific compounds offered by one mushroom for a specific purpose - e.g lions mane mushroom for memory, cognition and creativity or Reishi for deep nourishing sleep, calming and stress.

Mushroom blends, like the ENRICHD 7 is crafted from a blend of various mushrooms (mushroom extracts), have received attention for their health benefits and holistic approach to well-being. Immune support is the main reason to drink a mushroom blend though there is a whole world of other potential like gut health, anti-viral properties and anti-cancer studies.

The potential for you drinking a mushroom blend is fewer colds, better mood, better digestion, a generally feeling more robust as a being!

Below are 7 well known benefits these functional mushrooms can offer your current and future self...

1 >> Immune System Support << 1

One of the most important and awesome benefits of mushroom blend drinks is their ability to support (bolster if you like) the immune system. With an optimal immune system things just seem to be easier - i.e less likely to "catch" bugs and if something does "make it in" it's less likely to linger or have much affect with an optimal immune system. In other words - drinking a mushroom blend regularly, you may experience increased resistance to infections and a strengthened immune response. Mushrooms such as reishi, shiitake, and maitake (all in the ENRICHD 7 blend) are rich in polysaccharides and beta-glucans, compounds known for their immune support properties.

2 >> Adaptogenic Properties << 2

If you're here reading this, you've almost certainly heard the term "adaptogen" before? Well, these functional mushrooms are adaptogens. Meaning they help the body adapt to stress and maintain balance. Supporting adrenal function, regulating cortisol levels, and improving resilience to physical and mental stressors are all potential benefits! Incorporating the ENRICHD 7 mushroom blend into your daily routine is a great way to get a broad range of adaptogenic compounds in.

3 >> Enhanced Cognitive Function << 3

This is a controversial one for the mushroom blend. Yes if it contains Lions Mane and Reishi, you're getting compounds from mushrooms that support cognition, focus, stress and emotional wellbeing. Though if that's your specific goal I'd choose those specific mushrooms and get the higher amount per drink. I.e 2 grams of a 7 blend contains 1/7th Reishi and 1/7th Lions mane. Where as if you go for individual mushrooms you're getting the full 2g of those mushrooms - makes sense?

Lion's mane mushroom is "so hot right now" and has attracted attention for its neuroprotective properties and ability to stimulate NGF - nerve growth factor production. By promoting the growth and maintenance of brain cells, lion's mane may contribute to improved memory, focus, and cognitive performance.

4 >> Antioxidant Activity << 4

Mushrooms are a great source of antioxidants (especially chaga). In short - antioxidants can help protect cells from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Antioxidants help reduce inflammation, which can help prevent chronic diseases, and slow the aging process. Yes please. A mushroom blend drink can be a tasty way (in hot choc, coffee or on their own) to get a dose of antioxidants to support overall health and longevity.

5 >> Gut Health and Digestive Support << 5

The gut microbiota is critical for overall health, and influences everything from digestion to immune function and mood regulation. Reishi and turkey tail, contain prebiotic fibers that support (feed?) beneficial gut bacteria and support a healthy microbiome. By promoting gut health and digestion, mushroom blend drinks may contribute to improved nutrient absorption and overall well-being. Just to repeat that - improved nutrient absorption - actually absorbing the nutrients from the foods you eat - including mushrooms! ;) Chaga has also been studied for helping ease IBS and IBD symptoms.

6 >> Anti-Inflammatory Effects << 6

Inflammation has quickly gained a pretty horrendous reputation. Chronic inflammation is a contributing factor to many health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders. Chaga especially and Turkey tail are known for their anti-inflammatory properties which may help reduce inflammation (obviously) and support the immune system. Regularly drinking (or adding to soup) mushroom blend drinks may help mitigate inflammation in the body and promote longevity. Si, gracias.

7 >> Energy and Vitality << 7

This point is one of controversy, sometimes... People often recommend cordyceps mushroom for energy, and that is definitely true in many circumstances, though counter-intuitively Reishi (calming, de-stressing and deep sleep) can help improve energy BECAUSE it helps the body restore / replenish natural reserves of energy - that's a very broad statement, though logically - if you're sleeping better and less in the sympathetic part of the nervous system then the more energy you're likely to have. We offer a super potent Cordyceps extract though decided to keep it out of the ENRICHD 7 blend because cordyceps is one of the mushrooms we believe is not for everyone.

Mushroom Blends (bringing it home...)
Bringing it home, mushroom blend drinks can be a powerful elixir to add into your life, offering a world of potential. Communicating to your bod and to your immune system with a mushroom blend elixir like the ENRICHD 7 can give you the edge, perhaps delivering less down time, greater energy, improved sleep, less likely for illnesses to fully manifest, immune support, cognitive support, less stress... erm. Awesome.

Drink the ENRICHD 7 mushroom blend on its own, in a hot choc, in your coffee, or, because all the mushrooms are extracts and are bio-available (this is important) you could add it to your smoothie...
