What is a functional mushroom and what are their benefits?
"The phrase functional mushroom specifically refers to varieties that have a health benefit beyond providing nutrition. They are nutritious, high protein, high fiber, vitamin-rich foods. Common advantages cited by proponents of the functional mushroom trend include anti-inflammatory properties – helpful for people with a variety of medical conditions that include inflammation as a symptom – and the presence of substances like antioxidants, which can help boost blood flow and provide other benefits. Certain varieties may also help eaters better cope with stress. Although not all mushrooms offer all of the pluses commonly tied to functional mushrooms, every type brings some of the advantages to the table.” - Escoffier School of Culinary Arts

What is an adaptogen? Are mushrooms adaptogens?
“To qualify as an adaptogen, a mushroom must help the body in a non-specific way. That last part is important because rather than serving a single, targeted purpose, adaptogenic mushrooms will adapt their healing properties to whatever your body specifically needs at a given time in order to restore you to peak functionality. Think of adaptogens this way: You know that good friend who comes over to your house to vent after she’s had a bad day, but sees that you’re over the moon about some terrific news and promptly adjusts her demeanor to celebrate your happiness with you? That’s what an adaptogen does in the human body — it senses what the body needs and alters its behavior in whatever way necessary to foster peak health.” - Tero Isokauppila, the founder of Four Sigmatic - from his book, Healing Mushrooms
