Mar 26, 2020 (Baystreet.ca via COMTEX) -- Mushrooms are proving to be magic for your immune system.
Researchers form Griffith University, notes The New Daily, have said it’s well documented that mushrooms have the “ability to activate cell immunity in humans. They do this through their possession of beta-glucans, which humans don’t have. So, when human cells come into contact with this foreign body, the immune system starts to fire up and respond.”
Reportedly, mushrooms such as Reishi can help with sleep, anxiety, and depression. Lion’s mane can help with memory and concentration. Chaga can help with inflammation for example. Turkey tail can help support the immune system, and assist with cancer prevention.
Even more exciting, studies have already shown that when mushrooms are “ingested it transforms into a psychoactive chemical in the body that might help dramatically reduce symptoms of depression, messing with the brain's pre-frontal cortex, which affects our mood and perception of things and another part of your brain, that’s a part of processing emotional reaction to fear and anxiety,” as reported by Spectrum News.
As the health benefits are realized, it’s opening a range of opportunity for companies that have already established launching cannabis products including The Yield Growth Corp. /zigman2/quotes/202014329/delayed CA:BOSS -3.33% /zigman2/quotes/200119040/composite BOSQF -0.05% , The Green Organic Dutchman (to:TGOD) /zigman2/quotes/204266798/composite TGODF +15.18% , Canopy Growth Corporation (to:WEED) /zigman2/quotes/200603886/composite CGC +6.41% , The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc.
