How Does This Ayurvedic Food Improve Wellness?
CLINICAL AYURVEDIC REVIEW
Chinese medicine uses many mushrooms as immune tonics. Research confirms that Maitake is an immune stimulant and has anti-cancer properties. It also reduces blood sugar, good for diabetics.
Mushrooms are considered to be tamasic and a bit dark in Ayurveda. They are earthy and soulful. Many western herbalists entertain the notion that mushrooms come from an alien planet. While this opinion has no basis scientifically, it captures the strangeness of mushrooms.
