When it comes to health and beauty benefits, mushrooms are simply magnificent, and with that in mind, mushroom bioscience experts, Hifas da Terra – the world’s number one researcher and manufacturer of medicinal mushrooms – have launched a range of organic mushroom superfood powders. The range harnesses the incredible benefits of some of the most powerful varieties, including lion’s mane, reishi, and cordyceps, and by adding just a tablespoon or two to your food or drink, you can start to feel their incredible benefits.
Hania Opienski, naturopath and Mycotherapy Specialist Consultant says: “As a practitioner, I recommend medicinal mushrooms to everyone (unless allergic) to add to their daily self care. As adaptogens, these miraculous fungi are safe for long term consumption, as they help the body to harmonise itself. I think they should be considered another food category, like ‘greens’ or ‘essential fats’, that people should be consuming everyday. These vegan powerhouses provide an array of essential nutrients, some of which you can only get from mushrooms. This includes beta-glucans which not only balance your immune system, but also protect your cells from damage, and help you fight illness for better wellbeing allround.”
FOR ENERGY, STAMINA AND RECOVERY: Cordyceps Vital Over 2,000 scientific articles have been written about cordyceps regarding its effect on the kidneys, liver, genito-urinary and immune systems, and most importantly on energy . Cordyceps also received attention after Chinese athletes broke world records without showing any symptoms of fatigue partly due to a special diet including cordyceps. Several scientific studies have also confirmed that cordyceps increases the use of oxygen in the body, improving power, reducing recovery time and speeding up the removal of lactic acid. Hifas da Terra Cordyceps Vital Powder contains 100% vegan mycelium powder, naturally occurring beta-glucans, vitamins & minerals, and is antimicrobial and naturally antiviral.
FOR DIGESTION AND BRAIN HEALTH: Hericium Digest Powder Studies have shown that lion’s mane mushrooms can help with digestive health by fighting inflammation, which could be beneficial for people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS). They can also boost immune function and encourage the growth of good bacteria in the gut. Made with 100% pure fruiting body extract of organic Lion’s mane, this powder is rich in polysaccharide probiotic fibre for a healthy gut lining. It also contains bioactive compounds to support the nervous system, as well as helping with memory and cognition.
FOR ANTI-AGING: Reishi AntiOx PowderAlso known as ‘The mushroom of immortality’, reishi has been shown to help with anti-ageing and cell rejuvenation. This powder is also made from 100% pure fruiting body extract of reishi mushrooms and contains naturally occurring beta-glucans, vitamins & minerals, and is anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. Reishi mushrooms may also help with stress, sleep anxiety and irritability and immune function.
To use, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of Hifas da Terra superfoods to your favorite smoothie, yogurt, hot cocoa, rice, soup or whatever you feel like having that day. You’ll notice the difference!
