Medicinal mushrooms for fatigue: what they are

Medicinal mushrooms for fatigue, such as Reishi and Cordyceps, help the body and the psyche to regain well-being, improving the quality of sleep, energy and mood. Let’s scroll them better.

Physical and mental fatigue

Throughout the year there are periods of particular stress and fatigue, not only physical but also mental. In the modern society in which we find ourselves we must always give our best, be active and snappy from morning to evening, when we often collapse exhausted by days too full of work and commitments.

All this caused by work, family commitments or unforeseen events, school problems, illness and even seasonal changes.

A good restful sleep or a restful and relaxing weekend is not enough for everyone, perhaps in a wellness center that certainly improves the general conditions in the first place but which then undoubtedly once returned to daily stress everything resumes and sometimes even intensifies.

Therefore, if this state of exhaustion lasts for weeks and then months, with often headaches (especially at the weekend), nervousness, sometimes slight insomnia or non-restorative rest, sometimes with more nocturnal awakenings or sometimes nightmares, we can help the body to find the right balance first of all with a diet rich in highly nutritious foods for all systems, especially the nervous and immune systems.

Medicinal mushrooms to cure fatigue

Diet is certainly the basis in these cases, but it is not the only one that can support us when fatigue, nervousness, anxiety and / or depression grip us.

As we know, in nature, there are many remedies that help the body and the psyche to regain well-being one of all and the best known in case of depression is Hypericum.

But we can use natural food supplements that will act more deeply, nourishing our nervous system and rebalancing the physical and mental body in its entirety.

The medicinal mushrooms that come to our aid in these cases are Reishi and Cordyceps, and if there have been particular anxiety or panic attacks, then Coriolus and Auricularia will also be useful, without forgetting the Maitake.

Reishi nourishes the blood and calms the mind, gives centering to the two cerebral hemispheres and is therefore of great help in anxiety and mental fatigue. It is also an ally of sports performance because it contains a high concentration of germanium which increases oxygenation and adenosine, which by determining a vasodilation of the blood vessels, increases the volume of blood circulation throughout the body. 

Codyceps, on the other hand, improves the quality of sleep, energy, mood, breathing and even mental clarity.

The two mushrooms can be combined in a good rebalancing and well-being treatment.

In case of anxiety and insomnia, it is the ideal combination of Reishi and Auricularia to be used for a long time.

Coriolus rich in vitamins B6 and B12 will be an excellent nutrient essential to the latter because it has positive effects on the health of the brain and nervous system.

Maitake is the fungus of the Water and Metal Lodges, it acts on the Lung and Kidney Meridians, has a refreshing effect with a toning action on the kidney Yin and nourishes the brain. In the Kidney resides our Qi that is our energy, when we suffer from fatigue it needs to be supported and nourished.


Always contact a professional in the sector who will be able to indicate the type of mushroom or the best mushrooms to use will be evaluated according to the subject and its constitution. Furthermore, he will have to do some ground work first to ensure an excellent action of medicinal mushrooms on the whole organism
