Medical Mushrooms are mushrooms that are used or can potentially be used in the future to make medical drugs. They contain one or more compounds that can have various health benefits as well, such as antiviral or anti senescence properties. Many medical mushrooms also contain adaptogenic properties which are under study, such as compounds which boost the immune system by stimulating lymphocyte production, or novel anti inflammatories.
