These special fungi are some of the richest sources of therapeutic compounds, including lipids, proteoglycans (combinations of proteins and sugars), polysaccharides (including beta glucans), alkaloids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and more. Certain varieties of medicinal mushrooms have been prominent in traditional Asian formulas for millennia because of their numerous health benefits on multiple organ systems.

Cool Off Naturally – Rodale

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), summer relates to the fire element—and on a physical level, TCM emphasizes the health of your heart and circulatory system during this season.

Prevent Cancer with Clean Teeth – Mind Body Green September 2012

Back when we were children, our parents urged us to brush our teeth every day, and for plenty of reasons: cavities, gum disease, early tooth loss. And let’s face it -- teeth that don’t get a regular brushing can be a little off-putting. But it’s only recently we’ve learned that poor dental hygiene can also lead to cancer.
