8 Types of Medicinal Mushrooms

2. Reishi Mushroom

This is another mushroom that probably won’t make the best addition to your Mom’s spaghetti sauce recipe. Described as having a tough texture and bitter taste, reishi is strictly medicinal, but it could have a lot to offer your health.

That’s because reishi, which has been called the “mushroom of immortality,” has antibacterial and antiviral properties, making it a great choice for fighting off a nasty cold or infection. Reishi has also been heralded by WebMD.com as an anti-aging tool, helping us look and feel younger.
