Despite functional mushrooms being used for medicinal purposes for centuries, many pet parents are wary of treating their pets with functional mushrooms. The common misconception about organic functional mushrooms is that they are poisonous and hallucinogenic. We’re here to dispel this myth right up front. Treating pet ailments with functional mushrooms will neither poison your pet nor send then tripping through the woods. Now, let’s talk about what functional mushrooms can do for your pet’s health.

Organic functional mushrooms boost immune system

Organic mushrooms can have incredible benefits for your pet’s immune and digestive health. Mushrooms contain thousands of good enzymes, nutrients, and proteins that can combat a variety of ailments. The primary component of functional mushrooms are polysaccharides called beta-glucans. Beta-glucans help the body respond appropriately to various stressors, from physical to mental ailments.

Functional mushrooms have anti-cancer properties

Medicinal mushrooms have become increasingly popular due to their anti-cancer properties. Beta-glucans stimulate white-blood cells, which can fight tumors. And, functional mushrooms have very few side-effects, as well as supporting many major bodily systems. Mushrooms can be a preventative measure against cancer, but can also be used to help boost your pet’s immune system while undergoing other treatments for cancer, like chemotherapy.
