Can Mushrooms Help Hay Fever?

As the sun starts to make an appearance and pollen levels rise, the estimated 16 million people who suffer from hay fever across Britain will be gearing themselves up for a Summer of sneezing. So, you are probably wondering, can mushrooms really help hay fever?

Well, the short answer is… Yes!

Here’s how…

The ‘Mushroom of Immortality’

Known in China as the King of all Mushrooms, the Reishi (Ling Zhi) mushroom is a medicinal mushroom that has been cultivated for thousands of years in the Far East for its array of health benefits. It is an edible type of medicinal fungus that fits the definition of a true superfood. These mushrooms are anti-inflammatory and tied to longevity, better immune function and mental clarity, worthy of the nickname ‘Mushroom of Immortality’.

Reishi mushroom is also known as the ‘number one natural supplement for suppressing hay fever’, due to its ability to relieve hay fever and allergy symptoms. The mushroom contains bioflavonoid triterpene, this inhibits histamine release and oleic acid which has antihistamine properties. Combining this with its powerful effects to regulate the immune system and improve oxygen supply, this is a fantastic natural solution for those suffering from the sneezes.

Reishi Remedies  

If you are suffering from hay fever, it is important to incorporate Reishi into your lifestyle. We have a couple of solutions which may be beneficial to suppress the effects of hay fever:

Mycology Nutrition Reishi Mushroom Capsules

The 450mg capsules are perfect for patients who do not like the taste of raw herbs and want a quick, convenient solution.

What makes these mushrooms special is that unlike other mushroom products, Mycology Nutrition uses the whole food, rather than an extract to ensure better digestibility. All products contain both mycelium and a fruiting body to ensure there is no loss of valuable enzymes, co-enzymes and important co-factors.

Each bottle contains 90 organic, gluten-free capsules which can be consumed easily. For your correct dosage, please refer to the packaging label for directions*.

Mycology Nutrition Reishi Mushroom Powder

The 120gram whole food powder can be added to tea, cereal, soups, shakes and more! It’s an easy and effective way to get all the health benefits of the Reishi mushroom.

The organic mushrooms are high in fibre, vitamins and minerals, specifically Vitamin D2 which helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus. The mushrooms are high in ergosterol which is converted into Vitamin D2, which is known to be deficient in Western diets due to the unpredictable British weather!

Just like the whole Mycology range, the Reishi mushroom is simply grown, milled into a powder, resulting in a pure product ready to be consumed.  

*Please note the mushroom powder cannot be mixed with acidic drinks such as organic juice or carbonated drinks.

The Verdict

Whether encapsulated or powdered, the Reishi mushroom is a powerful tool against hay fever symptoms to help you beat the sneeze.
