The healing power of medicinal mushrooms has been known throughout Asia for thousands of years. Recently, the power of medicinal mushrooms, particularly their pharmacological potential in helping treat cancer, boosting the immune system, helping with digestive problems and more is being studied by researchers around the globe.
