Medicinal Mushrooms

In this video, my son, Step, and I prepare a dish of medicinal mushrooms and artichokes. Not only does it help enhance immune system function, but it will take your taste buds for a joy ride!

Japanese legend has it that when people ate maitake mushrooms, they danced with joy over the wonderful flavor and health enhancing properties (maitake literally means “dancing mushroom”). Maitake and shitake mushrooms are loaded with anti-cancer compounds. They have powerful adaptogenic properties, meaning that they help protect the body against the effects of stress. Why artichokes? Because they contain phytonutrients that help us detoxify by supporting liver function. Artichoke hearts are also full of antioxidants, which help us defend against free radical stress. To your health!
