Medicinal Mushrooms Event at The Green Parrot, Swaffham on Tues. October 16th 10:00—2:00
Mushroom Nutrition is coming of Age in Western Europe
This exciting area of nutrition is really coming to the fore and Nutrition in Norfolk is really delighted to welcome Victoria O’neill, an expert in the nutritional properties of medicinal mushrooms from Hiffa-da-Terra, to talk about the latest information on the healing properties of mushrooms and why certain mushrooms now have a place in supporting our health and particularly the health of the immune system.
There are many clinical studies as well as increasing amounts of research on the profound effect mushrooms have on health and supporting the complex balance of the immune system as well as the health of the digestion and Gut. In China, Japan and Spain, mushrooms are used as an adjuvant to chemotherapy and radiotherapy, to support the restoration of the immune system.
More than 50 mushroom species have been shown to exhibit anti-cancer activity and among these Coriolus versicolor is the most widely studied. In recent studies the polysaccharopeptides obtained from this mushroom have shown to provide a particularly supportive anti-tumour, anti-viral and pain relieving benefit, with no apparent toxic effect. We will hear about Coriolus and many other mushrooms and why we should add these to our diet regularly.
