The Future of Mushrooms for Immunity
With our ubiquitous networks of mycelium and fungal fruiting bodies, we have lived on this planet for more than a billion years. We are older than the plants, older than the dinosaurs, and much, much older than you. We are nature’s engines of regeneration and renewal, the bridge between life, end of life and rebirth. We are food, medicine, friend and foe. And we are everywhere: in the soil, in the air, in the depths of the ocean and the frozen wastes of Antarctica. We also live on the surface of your body and inside you. In fact, you’re not really a ‘you’ at all; you’re an ‘us’. And when it comes to improving the health of the planet we all share, we can be one of your greatest allies: we play a key role in helping you live healthier lives, and boosting your immunity.
