Sorry for using such presumed strong language, however I had to get your attention on this one today!

Shiitake Mushroom

However, Shiitake is not a curse or swear word, it is actually a type of safe edible and nutritious Mushroom, and the 6-Healing Powers of Mushrooms is my topic for today.

My apologies again for scaring the Shiitake out of you, but you will thank me later for the information given. Lol…

Mushrooms are so popular in Asian countries, that they are sold by Streetcar Vendors, just as how Hot Dogs are sold in New York, United States; Jerked Chicken in Jamaica; Fish & Chips in London, England; and Doubles in Trinidad & Tobago.

However, Americans and persons in many other countries have been slow to embrace these meaty morsels, however they are becoming increasingly commonplace in the kitchen, as a Ganoderma-based supplement in Coffees, Teas, Iced Tea, Hot Chocolate, Personal Care Products and Nutraceutical Capsules and also in Research Laboratories.

Scientists are now discovering what Natural Healers have known for ages. Mushrooms not only are important sources of nutrients, but also stimulate the Immune System. Researchers say that they can possibly help fight Cancers and High Cholesterol, and perhaps even A.I.D.S. (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome).

White Button Mushrooms

Unfortunately, the common White Button Mushrooms, the favorite from the Fungus Family, has no medicinal value. It does, however, supply good amounts of some key nutrients like B-Vitamins.

Ganoderma Lucidum vs. Cancer — The Winner is…

Ganoderma Lucidum

Long esteemed in China and Japan for their Tumor-shrinking abilities, Shiitake Mushrooms, like Ganoderma Lucidum have been attracting global attention because of the Cancer-fighting compound that they contain.

These large meaty mushrooms contain a Polysaccharide, or Complex Sugar called Lentinan.

Polysaccharides are large molecules that are similar in structure to Bacteria. When you eat Shiitake Mushrooms or consume Ganoderma Lucidum in any form, your Immune System starts amassing an army of Infection-fighting Cells.

In essence, they stimulate the Immune System into kicking into action. They may even help persons who are suffering from Lupus and other Auto-Immune System Diseases. See more information pertaining to Lupus and Auto-Immune System Diseases by reading my future articles entitled, “Lupus — Why Is My Own Body Attacking Me?”, “Build Your Own Immune System Today! Food Is The Powerful Medicine”, and “Fighting Infections: Use Food As Your Weapon” at my blog page — https://medium.com/@rohanmcleod.

Researchers have found that when they feed Lentinan in the form of Dried Mushroom Powder, for example Ganoderma Lucidum, Ganoderma Lucidum Mycellium or Ganoderma Lucidum Spore Powder to laboratory animals with Tumors, they can prevent Tumor growth by 67 percent, because the Tumor Cells experience a state of Apoptosis (where the Tumor Cells actually committed suicide) and do not harm or damage any healthy cells. See video below that explains it all at — http://youtu.be/4FZq2WuUrIU

Seems much better and healthier than Chemotherapy to me?

What do you think?

Only recently are they getting the attention that they deserve in Western Nations and with Medical Practitioners.

Maitake Mushroom

The active Polysaccharide in Maitake Mushrooms, called Beta-glucan or D-fraction, has been highly effective in shrinking Tumors in Laboratory Animals, may be even more effective than Lentinan, says the Experts.

You can definitely get some of these Polysaccharides that activate the Immune System when you eat a healthy serving about a half-a-cup of these Mushrooms or drink one 8-ounce cup of Coffee, Tea, Iced Tea or Hot Chocolate infused with 100 percent certified Organic Ganoderma Lucidum or two (2) capsules of Nutraceutical Supplements containing Ganoderma Lucidum, Ganoderma Lucidum Mycellium or Ganoderma Lucidum Spore Powder daily.

All three types of edible Mushrooms are usually found in Asian Food Stores and some Supermarkets. However, Ganoderma Lucidum is now more readily available worldwide and in the United States in Health Food Stores and online at Time Of My Life Café — www.TimeOfMyLife.OrganoGold.com

On an average a monthly supply of Ganoderma Lucidum cost between USD$35 to USD$109, depending on the form it is being purchased. For more information and even to request FREE product samples, please visit — http://timeofmylife.coffeemillions.com/dlcp/my_video_page

Based on the information presented pertaining to “Ganoderma Lucidum vs Cancer — The Winner is…?”

For sure the winner is Ganoderma Lucidum — The King of Herbs!

Boosting The Immune System & Fighting A.I.D.S.

Because Shiitake, Maitake and Ganoderma Lucidum Mushrooms have proven so effective in bolstering the Immune System, some Scientists have tested their mettle, with some success against H.I.V. (Human Immunodeficiency Virus), the virus that causes A.I.D.S.

In Laboratory Studies, an extract of the Maitake Mushroom’s Beta-glucan was able to prevent H.I.V. from killing T-cells, the Immune System’s crucial White Blood Cells.

Eating these Mushrooms on a regular basis seems to be a very good way to keep your Immune System up, running and fighting foreign Pathogens or invaders every time.

More research information about Ganoderma Lucidum’s Immune System Boosting properties, H.I.V. and A.I.D.S. combating capabilities at the United States Official Medical Website at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed.

Just visit http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed and in their Search Engine, type “Ganoderma Lucidum, HIV” or “Ganoderma Lucidum, AIDS” or “Ganoderma Lucidum, Immune Boosting” and surprisingly see hundreds of credible research information.

Cutting Cholesterol

If your Cholesterol levels are hovering near the danger zone of 200 and above, you might want to consider making Mushrooms a regular side dish, dietary supplement or beverage at your table or in your cup or glass daily.

During the 1970s and 1980s, human and animal studies in Japan showed that one of the compounds in Shiitake Mushrooms, called Eritadenine, could effectively lower Cholesterol levels.

Oyster Mushroom

More recently, researchers from Slovakia have found that by feeding Mice, 5 percent in dried Mushrooms, particularly Oyster Mushrooms, they could reduce Blood Cholesterol by 45 percent, even when Mice were fed High Cholesterol foods.

Researchers still cannot say how many Mushrooms people have to eat to get the same effect. However, experts agree that adding a couple of these large, meaty morsels to your plate, as a supplement, or in your cup or glass as a beverage certainly cannot hurt, and it may help play a role in bringing your Cholesterol levels down.

The Vitamin B Booster!

Mushrooms offer two important B-Vitamins — Niacin and Riboflavin that are not often found in Vegetables.

For once, the common White Button Mushroom may be a key player. While Shiitake and Ganoderma Lucidum Mushrooms have a higher nutrient concentration, they also have a strong flavor. Most persons would not eat them in large quantities, but White Button Mushrooms with their mild taste can be eaten with virtually every meal.

Ganoderma Lucidum Mushroom

However, when Ganoderma Lucidum is infused with Coffees, Teas, Ice Tea, Hot Chocolate and in Supplement Capsules they do not maintain the strong flavor, but uniquely and perfectly maintain their nutrient and healing potency.

Niacin is important because it helps your body form the Enzymes needed to convert Sugars into energy, to use Fats and to keep Body Tissues healthy. White Button Mushrooms are a good source, containing 4 milligrams of Niacin which is 20 percent of the Daily Value (D.V.).

Like Niacin, Riboflavin is a “Helper Nutrient”. It is needed to convert other nutrients, like Niacin, Vitamin B6, and Folate into usable forms. If you are low in Riboflavin, you could also be low in these other nutrients too.

A half-cup of boiled White Button Mushrooms contains 0.2 milligrams of Riboflavin, 12 percent of the D.V.
