What are the benefits of taking Black Hoof mushroom?

Asked 3 years ago

There is such a craze going on with medicinal mushrooms lately and I've recently heard about this new one called Black Hoof mushroom. I'm curious about what this Black Hoof mushroom (or Phellinus Linteus) is used for and what potential benefits it can produce.

Phellinus linteus, or Black Hoof mushrooms, are a type of traditional Chinese medicinal mushroom that is very similar to Reishi mushrooms or Maitake mushrooms. The benefits of Phellinus linteus have not been widely researched, but some claim that its benefits are similar to those reported by enthusiasts of Reishi mushrooms, namely:

  • Antioxidant properties
  • Anti-inflammatory properties
  • Pain-reducing (analgesic) properties
  • Potentially inhibiting the development of type 1 diabetes

However, as with all mushrooms, there are allergenic properties pertaining to them. So be wary if you have a mushroom allergy and check with a doctor if the Black Hoof mushroom is safe for you.
