    Mushroom supplements

    I have been doing some research on antioxidants that play provide additional benefits and came across a supplement company that sells mushrooms. I found this a bit intriguing and purchased a 90 serving supply. It was cheap.
    Anyway such a supp can support multiple things aside from immune system support, such as skin health, energy levels, liver/kidney support, and enhance Nerver Growth Factor which assists brain/memory function.
    My questions then is how could such a supp be more effective when compared to other anti oxidant supps such as green tea, selenium, ALA?

    It seems like the main propeties lie in the polysaccharides and must be obtained via hot water extraction. so what other supplements have high levels of polysaccharides?

    Anyone care to comment on Mushroom supplements in general?

    I've never even heard of a mushroom supplement. I just eat mushroom, lots of them actually. I probably end up sautee'ing 2 or 3 lbs of mushrooms a week in my food.

    Highly advise looking up Paul Stamets, he's a mycologist & sort of an ''einstein'' of mycology. The health benefits of mushrooms are largely ignored nowdays. That being said in terms of macros they are pretty p*ss poor, in terms of various antioxidants & such they are absolutely brilliant things with an amazing biology to them. As far as i'm aware hot water extraction is not necessary, it is a method used most popularly with psilocybin ''magic'' mushrooms whereby you make a brew.

    Why waste money buying mushroom supplements when they're A) fairly easy to grow B) dirt cheap in asian markets for the likes of Reishi, Shiitake, Oyster, Turkey tail, Button caps, chestnut mushrooms.
