Recipe ~ Turkey Tail Medicinal Mushroom, Ginger, & Honey Immune Bombs
Our Turkey Tail Medicinal Mushroom, Ginger and Honey immune bombs offer a quick and easy boost to our inner resilience. Across the cooler months, we're consistently mindful of supporting our immune response and elevating our innate defences in order to protect our energy reserves and keep colds and flu at bay amidst the cool dry climate.
Turkey Tail Medicinal Mushroom
We describe Turkey Tail medicinal mushroom as a master healer. It has been used traditionally for centuries to enhance physical resilience and support a robust immune system. In recent times Turkey Tail has been touted as one of the most researched mushrooms in the world, delving into its immunomodulatory effects.
Turkey Tail’s bioactive compounds such as polysaccharopeptides (PSP), polysaccharide K (PSK), and beta-glucans are thought to contribute to its immune-boosting properties working to regulate and balance the immune response playing a vital role in fighting invading pathogens and viruses.
We’re one of the few companies that test our medicinal mushrooms for beta-d-glucans and guarantee a level of greater than 30% beta-d-glucans in each and every batch so our community can be sure they're working with a mushie that's active and potent. Some of our batches even contain greater than 40% beta-d-glucans. If you're ever wondering about the level of beta-d-glucans in your Inner Atlas medicinal mushroom extract feel free to drop us a note at email@example.com and we’d be happy to let you know!
We love ginger for its warm, spicy flavour and its health-supporting properties. Ginger's active compounds like polyphenols and gingerols are anti-inflammatory and can help to protect cells from oxidative stress, while its antimicrobial properties can help protect against bacteria and viruses.
A dash of honey brings soothing lubrication to the throat.
Turkey Tail Medicinal Mushroom, Ginger, and Honey Immune Bombs
In this recipe, we've batch prepared a Turkey Tail Medicinal Mushroom, Ginger, and Honey Immune Tonic, frozen into large ice cubes creating little immune bombs that are ready to go.
Once dissolved in boiled water these Immune Bombs create a tonic that is earthy, warming, spicy with a hint of honeyed sweetness.
Our mushroom extracts aren’t temperature sensitive so preparing them in advance and freezing doesn’t affect their quality. Phew!
A consistent practice when it comes to working with medicinal mushrooms really allows their benefits to come to life. A little every day goes a long way in comparison to taking larger doses of medicinal mushrooms infrequently. Working out little rituals or ways to incorporate medicinal mushrooms into your day can help to develop a strong and steady practice. So we love coming up with new ways to enjoy our mushies that allow us to whip up a healing tonic in a flash, just like these immune bombs.
