Medicinal mushrooms for gastrointestinal disorders, such as Hericium or Reishi, are useful for their anti-inflammatory effects and the regenerative and healing properties of the intestinal mucosa. Let’s find out better.

Gastrointestinal disorders

For gastrointestinal disorders we mean all those problems of the digestive system from gastritis, even of the nervous type, to colitis up to the classic abdominal swelling.

Before resorting to any remedy, even natural, it is necessary to restore digestive well-being through a good healthy and natural diet aimed at decongesting the viscera and restoring the gastric system in balance. It is clear that support with natural remedies will still be necessary, especially if the problem has now become chronic.

So starting from gastritis, ulcer, gastroesophageal reflux, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, but also irritable bowel syndrome, also called spastic colitis and digestive disorders on a nervous basis, you can use the classic probiotics, the right alkalizers (for the rebalancing of the pH and thus supply of oxygen favoring eubiotic life) and also the more specific medicinal mushrooms for the subject and for the problems presented.

The mushrooms that are often recommended for these problems are in particular Reishi and Hericium, in some cases the introduction of Shiitake and Maitake will also prove useful.

Hericium in particular has proved to be the preferred fungus for gastroenetrical pathologies thanks to its repair properties of the gastric and intestinal mucosa and its anti-inflammatory effects, then acting as a prebiotic favors the engraftment of the ideal bacterial flora.

It also acts in part on the nervous system often linked to digestive disorders, but supported by the Reishi it will be the right coupling especially when you have subjects who somatize their emotions on the gastric system.

In the porous bowel syndromeLeaky gut syndrome, the use of Hericium alone is exceptional thanks to its regenerating and healing properties of the intestinal mucosa.
