The Healing Power of Mushrooms
Current research shows that mushrooms are safe natural immune modulators with beneficial effects in quality of life and reduction of adverse effects of conventional therapies. Effects on antitumour activity, improving survival and decreasing cancer risk have also been reported. As natural biological response modifiers, potent antioxidants, and anti-inflammatories they are a key part of integrative medicine to support oncological patients.
