Hifas da Terra has launched a range of three raw, organic mushroom superfood powders which harness the benefits of lion’s mane, reishi and cordyceps.
Cordyceps Vital has been formulated to boost energy, stamina and recovery, and contains mycelium powder, providing naturally occurring beta-glucans, vitamins and minerals. The mushroom also has antimicrobial and antiviral benefits.
Hericium Digest Powder uses lion’s mane mushrooms to help with digestive health by fighting inflammation as well as boosting immune function and encouraging the growth of good bacteria in the gut. Made with 100% pure fruiting body extract of organic lion’s mane, this powder is rich in polysaccharide probiotic fibre for a healthy gut lining. It also contains bioactive compounds to support the nervous system, as well as helping with memory and cognition.
Reishi AntiOx Powder focuses on anti-ageing and cell rejuvenation through the use of reishi – known as the ‘mushroom of immortality’. The powder is made from 100% pure fruiting body extract of reishi mushrooms and contains naturally occurring beta-glucans, vitamins and minerals. Reishi is anti-inflammatory and antibacterial and may also help with stress, sleep anxiety and irritability and immune function.
“As a practitioner, I recommend medicinal mushrooms to everyone (unless allergic) to add to their daily self-care,” says Hania Opienski, naturopath and mycotherapy specialist consultant. “As adaptogens, these miraculous fungi are safe for long-term consumption, as they help the body to harmonize itself. I think they should be considered another food category, like ‘greens’ or ‘essential fats’, that people should be consuming every day.
“These vegan powerhouses provide an array of essential nutrients, some of which you can only get from mushrooms. This includes beta-glucans which not only balance your immune system, but also protect your cells from damage, and help you fight illness for better wellbeing all-round.”
Hifas da Terra mushrooms powders can be added to everything from smoothies, yogurt, and cocoa to rice and soup.
