THE PODCAST

"To some degree, all mushrooms have medicinal compounds in them. What makes the difference between one of those mushrooms being highly medicinal and the other one not is the presence of beta-glucans in different species. Those beta-glucans are responsible for the immunological activity that makes the difference between a normal, edible mushroom and a medicinal mushroom."
