Medicinal Mushrooms are continuously gaining popularity due to their ability to heal and recharge the body. This is one of our favourite supplements that we, at CYOS use daily for its many health benefits.
Medicinal Mushrooms have been used in Traditional Medicine and Chinese Medicine for hundreds and sometimes thousands of years and have been known to help restore the immune system, lower stress levels, regulate blood sugar and can help with physical, emotional and mental illness.
It is important to understand what type of mushroom might be most beneficial in seeing you become the best version of yourself! At CYOS we only use Nammex Certified Organic Mushrooms which grown naturally on substrate materials native to each particular mushroom and not in laboratories.
The main four types of Medicinal Mushroom we use at Create Your Own Supplement are Lions Mane (Hericium erinaceus), Reishi (Ganoderma Lucidum), Cordyceps (Cordyceps militaris) and Chaga (Inonotus Obliquus).
