Medicinal Mushrooms for Stress and Anxiety

Medicinal Mushrooms for Stress and Anxiety

Stress and Anxiety in Everyday Life

Stress and anxiety are unavoidable and natural responses to situations we can find ourselves in. As a collective society, we’ve made great strides to understand the weight of stress and anxiety and how detrimental their constant presence can be to our health. However, these are chronic issues, and many people do not seek the help or solutions they need. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health illness in the United States, as it affects 40 million adults each year[1]. Also, It is estimated that diagnosed Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) affects almost 7 million adults in the United States each year, but only 43.2% of those suffering receive treatment[1]. 

Medicinal Mushrooms for Stress and Anxiety

Sometimes the support needed is provided by nature, and we believe that the properties of certain medicinal mushrooms may help people.

Medicinal mushrooms have been used for centuries; widely known for their physical health benefits, there are studies supporting evidence that medicinal mushrooms can improve mental health as well [2,3]. Rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, some medicinal mushrooms are adaptogens with properties known to support emotional wellbeing.
