The Healing Power of Medicinal Mushrooms

The Healing Power of Medicinal Mushrooms


The healing powers of mushrooms have been well known to humans for thousands of years in Tibet, China, India and other ancient cultures.

For instance, Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus), this tree mushroom has been known to enhance memory and cognitive ability and calm the nervous system. Lion’s Mane stimulates the synthesis of nerve growth factor (NGF), a small protein crucial to the growth, maintenance and survival of cells within the brain. Cordyceps on the other hand helps the body to increase its output of energy by enhancing oxygen update by the cells. It helps athletes recuperate faster and improves a flagging libido. Whereas red reishi mushroom has been used to support better sleep, helps with calming and de-stressing the body and supports the immune system.

Modern medicine has used these mushrooms and other fungi to develop treatments from a wide range of conditions. Today, PURICA applies scientific methodology to these ancient healing substances, creating a safe, powerful and balanced range of product to help with chronic stress to modulating the immune system and improving memory.

To make these and other mushrooms even more effective, PURICA incorporates four advantages into everything it produces:

  1. Full spectrum formulation
  2. Therapeutic grade ingredients
  3. Highest quality
  4. Easily absorbed

Producing a full spectrum product means that PURICA uses the “entire mushroom” in all stages of the growth and life cycle – the mycelia, fruitbodies and spores and extracellular compounds – to produce each of its carefully formulated products.

Easy absorption is ensured through a process known as micronization which reduces large particles into fine, soluble particles, measured in micrometeres, which are easy for the body to absorb. (insert picture of before and after micronization).

Great care is taken in all stages of the growing, harvesting and processing of every mushroom used in PURICA products – a process that preserves active ingredients to deliver a consistent therapeutic grade product. Because of the high degree of quality control, each PURICA product qualifies as a healing superfood, grown on a certified organic plant base with trace minerals.

PURICA Immune 7 is an award winning formula that provides powerful immune support. This long-standing formulation consists of six carefully chosen medicinal mushrooms; agaricus, coriolus, maitake, shiitake, codyceps and reishi along with the proprietary blend Nutricol that consists of grapeseed and green tea. This can be taken daily as a immune optimizer as well as it complements mainstream treatments.

If you are looking for 360 degrees of optimal health, PURICA Complete 360 is a natural winner. This synergistic formulation of eight medicinal mushrooms – agaricus cordyceps, coriolus, reishi, shiitake, chaga and Lion’s mane – along with the ayurvedic herb ashwagandha (sensoril) provides both immune support and stress relief. Like all of PURICA mushroom formulations, PURICA Complete 360 is micronized for better absorption.

Using PURICA Immune 7 or PURICA Complete 360 can help to strengthen the walls in our castle and ensure that we optimize our immunity year-round.
