Today the therapeutic properties of mushrooms are used in the form of medicinal supplements, tinctures and teas. You can find many sellers online that offer medicinal mushroom extracts in capsules and tablets. If you plan to take medicinal mushroom supplements, first consult with your doctor to find out which type of supplement and dosage is right for your body. It is also very important to be careful in choosing the seller from whom to buy medicinal mushroom supplements.
It should be noted that humans cannot completely digest mushrooms. The therapeutic properties of mushrooms are enveloped in fungal cells made of chitin, a compound that cannot be broken down by digestive enzymes. The healing properties of mushrooms can be fully achieved through hot water extraction. The extraction process breaks down chitin and releases the active ingredients of the fungus and maintains its structural capacity and strength. Examples of unextracted additives include dry ground mushrooms and those grown in cereals.
