Stacking mushrooms- What It Is and Why You Should Do It

You’ve probably heard of stacking coupons when it comes to budgeting but what about stacking mushrooms when it comes to health?

The concept is pretty much the same. In the coupon world you “stack” a manufacturer's coupon with a store coupon for maximum savings, in the health world you “stack” one certain type of mushroom with another –usually via supplements or a supplement blend– as a way to increase the potential, overall health benefits.

And it's easier than you think! You can simply take two types of medicinal mushroom supplements at the same time, or take one capsule that already contains a professionally stacked blend of mushrooms at once! 

Why are Mushrooms Good for Our Health?

Mushrooms are composed of polysaccharides, indoles, polyphenols, and carotenoids which give them their antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, and anticarcinogenic properties.

They are also low in calories and fat as well as possess enough antioxidants to make your skin glow from the inside out.  They contain vital nutrients such as B vitamins (B2, B3, folate, B5), phosphorus, Vitamin D, selenium, copper, and potassium.

While incorporating fresh mushrooms into our daily diet is ideal, the demand for mushroom supplements is booming as some mushrooms have a very bitter, unpalatable taste.

Capsuled mushroom supplements are an ideal method of adding potent nutrition to your busy, fast-paced everyday life, in addition to the convenience of taking them anywhere you go.

What are Functional Mushrooms?

Functional mushrooms are mushrooms that are “heralded for health benefits beyond their nutritional compositions”. These mushrooms are typically divided into two groups: medicinal or adaptogenic.

Stacking these types of mushrooms will give you the most bang for your buck healthwise. A few of the more common ones are:

  • Reishi mushroom: known to boost both immunity and energy levels.
  • Chaga mushroom: rich source of antioxidants.
  • Lion’s Mane: improves cognitive function.
  • Shiitake: may improve immune system function and aid in treating certain types of gastric cancer.

The idea behind stacking for added health is this...

One mushroom may be known to improve energy, while another one may be known for boosting brain performance, while yet another can jumpstart your immune system. Taking all three at the same time lends itself to offering immune-boosting, brain-powered, super-charged energy all at once!

But how do you know which to stack or how much of each to take at a time?

Learning how much of each supplement to mix together can be tricky and confusing. You may wish to consult your health professional or naturopath for guidance. Or, you can look for ready-made supplement blends that contain expertly blended recipes for optimal, safe mushroom stacking health!

Take back your health by adding functional mushrooms to your everyday routine. Whether you’re looking for ways to boost your energy levels, stave off sickness and inflammation, or need a little help focusing, stacking medicinal mushrooms can be just what the fungi ordered!
