In recent years, the spotlight has increasingly turned toward their therapeutic properties. So called medicinal fungi are rich both in bioactive compounds and in natural wisdom that can support human health in a plethora of aspects. This article is our attempt to accumulate their unique benefits with an emphasis in female health. We focused our research on the mushrooms and herbs that we sell on our website.



Reishi. The soothing mushroom

Reishi has a storied history in traditional medicine, particularly in Asia. For women, Reishi can be especially beneficial as it helps to reduce stress and fatigue — common complaints during menopause. The mushroom works by enhancing endocrine system function, which helps balance hormones naturally. Its anti-inflammatory properties also make it valuable for reducing pelvic inflammation, making it a supportive companion during menstrual cycle and menopause.


Amanita Muscaria. Regulator of the wholeness, energy and sleep

Amanita Muscaria, the queen of mushrooms in her vibrant red cap with white spots, is known for calming, energising and overall balancing properties. For women, Amanita M. offers relief in painful menstruation and can aid in managing menopause symptoms. The mushroom is helping to detoxify body and regulate hormonal systems, promote restorative sleep and return sense of peace to life.


Lion's Mane. Cognitive and emotional support

Lion’s Mane is unique among mushrooms due to its potential to support brain health. It enhances the brain-gut axis, which can significantly influence mood swings and emotional well-being. The mushroom contains compounds that stimulate growth of brain cells and could potentially replace traditional antidepressants, making it a valuable option for emotional health during pregnancy and beyond.

Chaga mushrooms are packed with antioxidants that combat oxidative stress and may reduce the risk of chronic diseases. For women, Chaga offers an added benefit of maintaining radiant skin and slowing the aging process, it's a tool for the greater longevity.


Turkey Tail. Immune enhancement

Turkey Tail is well-regarded for its role in cancer therapy, particularly in enhancing the immune system's ability to fight cancer cells. It supports immune system by promoting the activity of natural killer cells and macrophages. This mushroom is particularly useful in managing and preventing breast cancer, providing a natural adjunct to conventional treatments.


Ashwagandha. Hormonal balance and nerve relaxation

Our herbal product, Ashwagandha is often used in conjunction with mushroom supplements to enhance their effects. It is an adaptogen, meaning it helps our bodies manage stress (and stress is number 1 destroyer for women!). One of the top Ayurvedic remedies, it has been proven to enhance female fertility in various ways, enhancing ovarian function, cutting down inflammation. Ashwagandha calms the nerves and supports hormonal harmony, making it helpful during menopause and any stressful periods.
