Medical mushrooms positively affect physical and sports performance, helping to support stamina and endurance by supporting oxygen flow, stimulating the most potent antioxidant in the body (which helps protect against oxidative stress), assisting in an antispasmodic effect, increase energy and stamina.
Functional Mushrooms increase the number of red blood cells, which boost oxygen levels and thereby enhance endurance, avert damage to skeletal muscles, reduce muscle mass loss and enhance muscle regeneration.
In addition, CBD has anticonvulsant properties, reduces muscular inflammation, restores muscle function, prevents loss of locomotor activity, and promotes the maturation of muscle cells.
Chaga mushroom has been found to positively affect physical and sports performance, helping to support stamina and endurance by supporting oxygen flow. Chaga is also one of the most antioxidant-rich foods on the planet and helps stimulate the most potent antioxidant in the body, Superoxide Dismutase, which helps protect against oxidative stress.
The Cordyceps mushroom has a long history of use by Chinese and Tibetan people to improve respiratory health and increase energy and stamina. Modern science shows that cordyceps has a positive effect on the body’s ability to use oxygen effectively (increase VO2 max index measuring the limits of the cardiorespiratory systems’ ability to transport oxygen from the air to the tissues at a given level of physical conditioning and oxygen availability). In physical activity, cordyceps is effective in reducing fatigue and improving energy use (via better respiratory and cardiovascular responses). Cordyceps can stimulate vasodilation (widening blood vessels and positively is increasing increased blood flow) and promote efficient oxygen use in tissues. Cordyceps assists in quicker adaptation to high altitude training as well as improves aerobic capacity.
Reishi is a powerhouse mushroom traditionally used to help with fatigue and muscular disorders. Studies show that Reishi improves physical fitness in individuals who have fibromyalgia (a condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain and accompanied by fatigue and sleep issues). Reishi increases the number of red blood cells, which boost oxygen levels and thereby enhance endurance. Reishi reduces stress and modulating immune functions (undergoes imbalance in immune cells caused by physical activity).
Recently, it was reported that CBD has muscle protective and restorative properties. Researchers reported that CBD helps treat temporary muscle soreness, has anticonvulsant properties, reduces muscular inflammation, restores functional autophagy and positively enhances muscle function, prevents the loss of locomotor activity, promotes the maturation of muscle cells.
