MUSHROOMS EVOLVE YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Foraging of wild mushrooms, preparation and enjoyed as a side dish. A mix of Boletaceae, wood hedgehog (Hydnum repandum) and chanterelle (Chanthatellus cibarius) mushrooms sautéed in a mix of ghee and smoked pig fat and it makes a great side dish. Yum!
We all had a great time collecting them and our son loved cutting them with a little knife and putting them in the basket. It’s also a great way to get some nutritional movement and spend time in nature.
When it’s time to consume them there’re other huge benefits. Inside the chitinous cell wall of the mushroom is a class of polysaccharides known as “Beta-Glucans”. These long-chain complex sugars are “Biological Response Modifiers” and they assist the body in adapting to its own unique circumstances. In other words, Beta-Glucans modulate the immune system, by lowering the overactive (auto-immune) Immune System, and stimulating the under-active (immuno-deficient) Immune System.
