What are mushroom extracts?

Mushrooms are highly recognized foods, but people don't know much about mushroom extracts. In recent years, the use of several different varieties of mushroom extracts is gradually increasing, and the product form is mainly composed of preparations and powder processed products.

Fungi, including mushrooms, are peculiar forms of life. They pop up, seemingly overnight, out of nowhere. And unlike plants, they’re not green, they don’t have leaves or roots, and they never form flowers, fruits, or seeds. Many of the components that help mushrooms defend themselves against their enemies also support your body’s defense mechanisms and are increasingly being seen as a legitimate means to enhance your health and well-being.

Mushrooms’ medicinal function

Medicinal mushrooms got their name because they were used for the prevention and treatment of diseases. All mushrooms contain beta glucans, which have been found to help fight inflammation and aid the immune system.Mushrooms are thought to protect against breast and other hormone-related cancers because they inhibit an enzyme called aromatase, which produces estrogen.Mushrooms also contain a type of lectins that recognize cancer cells and prevent these cells from growing and dividing.However,The medicinal value of mushrooms can be exploited by mushroom extracts.


The Federation of Americansocieties for Experimental Biology recently published nine studies on mushrooms, which were also published in the 2013 Experimental Biology, detailing a range of health issues. Efficacy, including:


Weight Management: A study found that replacing white meat with white mushrooms helps speed up weight loss. The average age of study participants was in their early 48s, and they used about a cup of mushrooms a day instead of meat. The control group used a standard diet without mushrooms.

 Weight Management

At the end of the 12-month trial, the body weight of the intervention group was reduced by an average of 3.6%, or approximately seven pounds, from the start of the trial. Compared with the control group, their body composition is also greatly improved, such as the waist circumference is reduced, and the state of weight loss can be maintained.

Improve nutrient intake: A dietary analysis found that eating mushrooms can achieve better dietary quality and improve nutrient intake.

Increase your vitamin D levels through diet: Studies have shown that if you need to increase your vitamin D (25 hydroxyvitamin D) levels, eating dry white mushroom extract is as effective as oral vitamin D2 or vitamin D3 supplements.


Improve immune system function: Mushrooms can have a beneficial effect on your immune system, mainly due to the long-chain polysaccharides, especially alpha-glucan molecules and beta-glucan molecules. One study found that adding one or two portions of mushrooms to the diet can have beneficial regulatory effects on immune system function. Another mouse-based study found that white mushrooms can promote the body's adaptive immune response to Salmonella.
