Mushrooms have been used in Chinese medicine for over 4,000 years, and research regarding the cordycep and reishi species and cancer therapy has been pretty straightforward. They can:
- Potentially increase survival
- Help shrink tumors
- Boost your immune system
- Reduce radiotherapy and chemotherapy side effects like nausea and hair loss
Of course, these results all depend on which extracts you choose and their concentrations. Some sources even suggest that supplementing with a complementary dose of vitamin C is also necessary.
