Reishi and Maitake mushrooms are royalty in the fungi kingdom. Reishi mushroom, aka “queen of the mushrooms”, has roots in Asia where it has long been revered as the “herb of spiritual potency” and relied upon for its impressive health benefits.
Both Reishi and Maitake mushrooms contain compounds that help regulate blood sugar levels. Maintaining stable blood sugar levels is crucial for hormone health, particularly insulin, which plays a key role in blood sugar regulation.
Blood sugar impacts hormone balance in a big way. Low blood sugar levels spur the release of adrenaline and cortisol. On the other hand, high blood sugar disrupts the ratio of estrogen to progesterone and increases the production of testosterone for women. In helping stabilize blood sugar, Reishi and Maitake also contribute to hormonal balance.
Additionally, research suggests that Reishi can protect and positively impact the endocrine system, which encompasses the glands throughout the body that are responsible for the production of hormones. This could have far-reaching effects on many aspects of health, as the endocrine system has a direct impact on metabolism, growth, sleep, mood, and sexual function.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, also known as PCOS, is a condition caused by an overproduction of male hormones by the ovaries, resulting in small cysts on the ovaries and symptoms like acne, weight gain and infertility.
Insulin resistance is a key feature of PCOS. High levels of insulin in the body increase the production of testosterone in the ovaries which can impair ovulation.
Maitake helps stabilize blood sugar levels and lessen insulin resistance, which in turn, promotes a healthier balance of hormones and can reduce symptoms of PCOS. In one Japanese study, maitake induced ovulation for 76.9% of women with PCOS.
Reishi mushrooms have been used traditionally to promote calmness and relaxation. They have mild sedative properties and help improve sleep quality.
Adaptogens help balance, restore and protect the body. Reishi and Maitake are both adaptogens, which means they help the body adapt to stress and promote overall balance.
Reishi mushrooms have traditionally been used to support liver health. They help protect the liver from damage, promote liver detoxification processes, and support optimal liver function. A healthy liver is crucial for overall health and can contribute to improved digestion, detoxification, and hormonal balance.
