Amanita Mushrooms

Amanita mushrooms, despite their notorious reputation for toxicity, can be beneficial when used in extract form. One of the most well-known extracts is Amanita muscaria, also known as fly agaric. This extract is believed to have potential health benefits due to its high content of bioactive compounds. It is rich in ibotenic acid, muscimol, and muscarine, which have been studied for their neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties. Amanita mushroom extracts may help support cognitive function and memory, reduce anxiety and stress, and promote relaxation.
