Holistic health and mushroom extract: a natural path to health

Taking care of your health in a holistic way is more than just diet and exercise; it involves a deeper understanding and care for our physical, mental and emotional well-being. In a world where stress and fast lifestyles dominate, it is becoming increasingly important to see health from a holistic perspective. Two of the pillars good health rests on, which are often lacking in our everyday life; is sufficient sleep and being out in nature. Did you know, for example, that 85% of Sweden's population lives in cities? Having said that, it is important, especially for city dwellers, to get involved in outdoor activities to get their dose of nature!

The healing effect of nature

Nature offers a unique environment that can contribute to improved mental health, reduced stress and increased physical activity. Time spent in nature can act as a powerful counterbalance to the stressors of modern lifestyles, and in fact, spending 120 minutes a week in nature is enough to start noticing what an enormous powerhouse it is for recovery and well-being (White et al. 2019). .

The role of sleep

Good sleep is a critical factor for good overall health. Sleep affects everything from mental clarity and emotional stability to physical health and the immune system. Prioritizing good sleep is essential to maintaining a balanced state of health.

Mushroom extract as a supplement for overall health

Incorporating chaga, lion's mane, shiitake and maitake mushroom extracts into your daily routine can be a valuable part of your quest for overall health. These mushrooms not only offer nutrition but also powerful benefits such as antioxidants and beta-glucans that can boost your immune system and thus your overall well-being.

Tips on how you can integrate mushroom extracts into your everyday life:

  1. The morning routine: start the day with a mushroom-enhanced drink. We usually like to start the day with our invigorating lion's mane !
  2. Culinary experiments: test yourself! Down with half a teaspoon in your salad dressing or in your soup bowl. When it comes to experimenting with mushroom extracts in food, we tend to pull perhaps the most obvious card: shiitake ! What a lovely extra push of umami.
  3. Evening tea: put away the screens and relax with an exciting book the hour before bed, and make some good tea. Then: in with half a teaspoon of mushrooms! At bedtime, we usually prefer our chaga .

Safety and allergies

Be aware of potential allergies and drug interactions when using mushroom extract. Always start with a small dose to see how your body reacts.
