Why the increase into the mysteries of the mushroom? There is a long list of reasons, but mainly, it's all about that sustainability. Posted in the Vegconomist's Market & Trends, regenerative agriculture has seen explosive growth over the last two years as the plight of our planet steadily grows.

What's good for the soil, must be great for the body! They now have a label: functional mushrooms. Functional mushrooms simply mean some fungi go beyond basic health and nutritional benefits - like the saying, "carrots are good for your eyes"- mushrooms like Reishi and Chaga are more like medicine. Lion's Mane and Shiitake mushrooms are adaptogenic; they supercharge our stress response system so that our bodies can effectively ward off imbalances like inflammation.
