by Tony Isaacs
(The Best Years in Life) In the world of natural health, "medicinal" mushrooms are known as some of the most potent immune boosters and disease fighters. Many people believe that the most potent of all is the Agaricus Blazei Murrill mushroom (ABM mushroom), known in it's native Brazil as "The Mushroom of God"; however many people have other favorites and indeed there are many mushrooms that have proven to be very effective and popular.
Here are some of the very best:
Agaricus Blazei Murrill Mushroom - Known as “The Mushroom
of the Gods”.

derivatives of ergosterol, a potent anti-tumor agent;
double stranded RNA, an anti-viral agent; proteoglucans
and protein bound polysaccharides of low molecular
weight, which are immune enhancers; and, protein bound
polysaccharides of high molecular weight, vitamins B1

Shitake Mushrooms - The Shitake mushroom lowers cholesterol and improves immune system function, good for preventing high blood pressure and heart disease, for controlling cholesterol level, building resistance against viruses, and fighting diseases such as AIDS/HIV and cancers. Often available fresh, Shitake mushrooms are very flavorful when used in cooking! If you cannot find fresh, available as a supplement also.
Maitaike Mushrooms - High in nutrients including Vitamins B-2, C, D, niacin, magnesium, potassium, fiber, and amino acids, Maitake mushrooms contain the polysaccharide compound beta-1.6-glucan which naturally stimulates the immune system and lowers blood pressure. Beneficial for obesity and diabetic patients, the Maitake mushroom may be best known for its cancer fighting ability. Tests in mice prove that it blocks tumor formation and boosts the immune system. Available fresh or as supplement)

Reishi Mushrooms - The Reishi mushroom can increase the production of interleukin1 and 2, resulting in inhibition of tumor growth. Studies show that Reishi can have a number of other positive effects on the body such as analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-viral (through its interferon production), lowers blood pressure. It also acts as a cardiotonic by lowering serum and increasing the production of interleukin 1 and 2, which results in inhibition of tumor cholesterol, expectorant, anti-tissue, liver protecting and detoxifying, protection against ionizing radiation, antibacterial, and anti-HIV activity. Available fresh or as supplement.
Cordyceps Oglossoides Mushroom - Cordyceps, like many other medicinal mushrooms, contains complex sugars (especially beta 1,3 glucan) and other nutrients (nucleosides, triterpeniods) which seem to strongly nourish and activate various components of the immune system, useful in treating cancer, chronic fatigue and other immune disorders. It also seems to have value in treating nephritis, may help the immune system recognize tumors that otherwise might escape immune surveillance, and has positive effects on the cardiovascular and nervous systems, and an anti-aging effect.
Phellinus linteus - Made up primarily of polysacharrides, the Phellinus linteus mushroom suppresses cancer growth, angiogenesis and invasive behavior of breast and other cancer cells through the inhibition of AKT signalling. It also stimulates the immune system and induces apoptosis (cell death) in cancer cells.
The world of natural health has an abundance of botanicals, vitamins, minerals and supplements to help fight illness and boost the immune system. As you can see, the so-called "medicinal mushrooms" are important parts of that world.
