What are Amanita Muscaria mushrooms?
The Amanita Muscaria, or fly agaric, mushroom is found in many parts of the world. They are psychoactive and produce effects similar to their “magic mushroom” counterparts.
It is known for its bright red-orange cap and white spots and gills that stand out boldly against the forest floor. The mushroom has been found in Europe and the UK between July and October, as well as in North America, South Africa, Central Asia, and Brazil.
Its size makes it quite hard to miss – it can typically reach between five to 20 centimeters wide. Amanita muscaria has had quite a long history before its recent rise in popularity across North America. It was an essential component of pre-Christian rituals during Winter Solstice celebrations around Northern Europe and Central Asia. It was used for its spiritual effects by shamans in many indigenous cultures. In Finnish tradition, this mushroom was even called “joulutatti” or Christmas fungi due to associations with magical powers throughout much of winter folklore magic.
What are the benefits of Amanita Muscaria mushrooms?
The Amanita Muscaria mushroom has been historically utilized as a natural remedy for various conditions, including pain, fever, inflammation, and respiratory issues. It has also been used as a natural therapy for anxiety, depression, and stress. Furthermore, the mushroom is thought to possess immune-enhancing characteristics and may aid in promoting overall well-being.
Amanita Muscaria mushroom has three active ingredients – muscarine, muscimol, and ibotenic acid. Beta-glucans, a complex sugar found in the cell walls of fungi, are believed to be responsible for the health benefits of Amanita Muscaria mushroom. Other compounds like ergothioneine have also been found in the mushroom and may have properties that protect against oxidative stress and inflammation, according to research.
