Magic mushrooms: boosting immunity and fighting inflammation
As we transition from summer into autumn, our thoughts automatically go to walks in the forest to enjoy the beautiful foliage and by consequence to the many beautiful mushrooms that flourish in this moist yet warm season.
There's a good reason mushrooms are so popular in nearly every world cuisine.
While low in carbohydrates and calories, mushrooms are a great source of B-vitamins, trace minerals, fiber and even offer some protein.
But mushrooms offer more, they have anti-inflammatory properties and contains high levels of beta-glucans that keep immune cells alert, plus a powerful antioxidant called ergothioneine that helps lower body-wide inflammation.
The medicinal use of mushrooms has a very long tradition in Asian countries that dates back thousands of years. Although their use in the Western Hemisphere only started increasing in the past several decades, numerous recent studies show that they are vital, biologically active compounds with significant benefits to health.
How to prevent hay feverIt is that time of year again when we are hit most with hay fever attacks. Hay fever is caused by flowers, grasses and trees that rely on wind for pollination and shed pollen in large amounts.
Up to 30% of people in European countries suffer from one type of hayfever or another, which means they get an allergic reaction to some type of pollen, with the most common one causing problems being birch and grass pollen. As most birch pollen is produced in April and grass pollen season starts in May, both April and May can be called 'hay fever' months.
