We get this question a lot and it has to do with the differences between Cordyceps Militaris and Cordyceps Cs-4. -
Cordyceps Cs-4: is pure mycelium via liquid fermentation.
-
Cordyceps Militaris: is a fruiting body extract, processed by hot water extraction.
-
A unique feature to Cordyceps Militaris is that it displays higher levels of cordycepin. It also has greater levels of beta glucans (30% beta glucans) compared to Cs-4, which typically has around 10% beta glucans. Cordyceps Militaris seems to display many of the same health benefits that wild cordyceps has, which is huge considering just how expensive wild cordyceps is to find and harvest.

A very fascinating paper entitled: Chemical characterization and biological activity of Chaga (Inonotus obliquus), a medicinal โ€œmushroomโ€. Notice that mushroom is in quotations as the part of #Chaga that is harvested is not actually a mushroom. The #mushroom (fruiting body) of Chaga is very small and an extremely rare find. It is not used for supplementation.
-
What is actually harvested is commonly referred to as a sclerotium, which is a hardened mass of #mycelium. In this paper, they also refer to it as a conk. -
What is curious about this paper, is that the mushroom scientist, Leo van Griensven, notes that the Chaga conk actually has very little mycelium in it. Hereโ€™s what he says: โ€œIt should be noted that extracts were prepared from Chaga conks, hyperplastic structures from Birch cortex that consist only partly of fungal material. One of us (LJLDVG) estimated the amount of mycelium in the conks on 10% only, based on microscopical observation.โ€ Wow!!! Only 10% mycelium. -
If itโ€™s only 10% mycelium, what is the other 90%?
Where do the medicinal properties come from? the mycelium? The tree? A synergistic effect of both?
How does the dark outer part compare with the brown inner part?!?
-
Did you know that Chaga is actually one of the lowest weโ€™ve seen in beta-glucans (~10%) when compared with other medicinal mushrooms? This could be because it's not a mushroom and it is not pure mycelium. -
But donโ€™t let this sway you from its nourishing benefits. The researchers go on to tout Chagaโ€™s medicinal properties: โ€œโ€ฆour study indicated that aqueous and ethanolic extracts of Inonotus obliquus obtained from three different localities possessed clear antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-quorum sensing activity, as well as anti-tumor cell line effects without toxicity for non-tumor liver cells.โ€ .

An interesting paper titled: โ€œMushrooms extracts and compounds in cosmetics, cosmeceuticals, and nutricosmeticsโ€
-
Highlights:
->Mushroom ingredients combat skin aging, hyperpigmentation, and inflammation.
-> Phenolic compounds are the most active class of tyrosinase inhibitors.
-> p-Coumaric acid displayed multiple functions and can be an important cosmetic ingredient.
-> Ganoderma lucidum (#reishi) is the most widely used mushroom in commercial cosmetic products.
.
#Mushroom extracts, as well as their bioactive metabolites, revealed anti-tyrosinase, anti-hyaluronidase, anti-collagenase and anti-elastase activity. Emphasis was also given to their important anti-oxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory potential, topics largely studied by numerous authors, making them very versatile and multi-functional cosmetic ingredients. Some of the bioactive compounds and the mechanism responsible for the activities ascribed to #mushrooms were highlighted. Other activities were identified as needing to be further studied in order to identify the major compounds contributing to the target activity, as well as their mechanisms of action. Based on the above findings, mushroom extracts, as well as their bioactive metabolites, constitute important ingredients that can help to combat aging, reduce the severity of inflammatory skin disease and correct hyperpigmentation disorders.

What do you make of this? Have you tried skin care products that contain mushroom extracts?! If so, what have been your experiences?

The classic golden chanterelle, otherwise known as "Cantharellus cibarius" typically grows on forest floors, often in close proximity to conifers and deciduous trees. However, you can also find it in fields too. Chanterelle season usually begins in July and can end as late as January.
-
Did you know that efforts to cultivate this mushroom have proven to be very challenging because of the delicate and intricate symbiotic relationship this mushroom has with plants? Fascinating isn't it?!

The classic golden chanterelle, otherwise known as "Cantharellus cibarius" typically grows on forest floors, often in close proximity to conifers and deciduous trees. However, you can also find it in fields too. Chanterelle season usually begins in July and can end as late as January. - Did you know that efforts to cultivate this mushroom have proven to be very challenging because of the delicate and intricate symbiotic relationship this mushroom has with plants? Fascinating isn't it?! - Photo credit: @mushroomsandthyme . . . . . . . #wildfoodlove  #wildfood  #forage  #foraged  #forager  #foragedfood  #forageandharvest  #foragers  #foodie  #foodstagram  #plantbased  #plantbaseddiet  #plantbasedfood  #vegetarian  #vegan  #earthskills  #mushrooms  #fungi  #mycology  #medicinalmushrooms  #mushroom  #reishi  #fungusamongus  #lingzhi  #guthealth  #detox  #veganfit  #foodismedicine  #shrooms  #setas

Maitake (Grifola frondosa) otherwise known as Hen of the Woods or Dancing Mushroom. This mushroom is a prized mushroom for its culinary purposes. Maitake also possesses strong anti-inflammatory and immune boosting properties. There is even some research to suggest it supports healthy glucose metabolism.

Tremella Mushroom (snow fungus)
-
Known as the "Beauty Mushroom." You can see why from this capture!
-
Boosts Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) in the brain and liver. SOD is one of the most vital antioxidant enzymes in the body.
-
Tremella mushroom has the ability to boost the Hyaluronic Acid content in the body (HA). HA declines as we age. This compound helps retain skin moisture, which will help skin elasticity and durability as we age.
-
I wouldnโ€™t be surprised if we start seeing more Tremella mushroom extracts in skin care products.
