What are the benefits of Meghan Markle’s mushroom supplements?

“Lion’s Mane has incredible benefits for the nervous system,” says Clarissa Berry, nutritionist for Dirtea, a range of mushroom-based powders. “It can boost mental performance, memory and concentration, making it a wonderful addition to your morning routine.

“Lion’s Mane is also a mood balancer, it reduces inflammation and promotes healthy digestion, while reducing stress and anxiety,” Clarissa adds.

Reishi performs just as well, with Clarissa explaining that it’s considered one of the best supplements for stress and anxiety.

“Reishi has a calming effect on the nervous system, stimulating the brain to produce calming neurotransmitters, and studies have shown it relieves symptoms of anxiety,” she says.

“It can also balance hormones, which are known to have a direct impact on mood,” Clarissa adds. She also explains that reishi mushrooms can improve the quality and duration of sleep, as well as support immunity and help against hay fever, thanks to a natural antihistamine action.

The best news? Reishi and Lion’s Mane mushroom supplements work immediately, decreasing inflammation and immediately improving mental performance.
