For thousands of years, traditional Chinese medicine has revered mushrooms as essential ingredients for wellness. While mushrooms have many curative and preventative properties, some of the most studied is their effect on being anti-inflammatory agents, supporting the immune system, enhancing mood, and increasing energy, just to name a few.
Cordyceps are a group of fungi that have amazing compounds that support immunity and fight fatigue. One of these compounds is called adenosine, and it helps with adrenal fatigue.
The Growing Problem Of Fatigue, Tiredness, And Burnout
Physical fatigue, overwhelming tiredness, and depletion of energy can be caused by many factors, including injury, disease, and anxiety or depression. In today’s modern society, our emphasis on work and staying busy can cause prolonged or even chronic mental fatigue. Poor diet or unfortunate illnesses can also cause extended periods of fatigue.
Except for extreme cases of illness, most physical and mental fatigue is reversible with a combination of healthy food, exercise, and quality sleep. Medical mushrooms such as Cordyceps, Maitake, and Lion’s Mane are all great ways to naturally boost your energy levels while supporting good sleep.
