Movember mushrooms

15 Nov

I’m not associated with the Movember campaign but it is drawing a lot of attention towards men’s health this month and tonight I would like to draw a little attention to some wild mushroom which may make a big difference in men’s and women’s health now and in the future.

I didn’t need to convince my young friend to dress up to help bring a little Movember awareness with a loud and wild oyster mushroom moustache and cap as he has already seen some things on TV concerning Movember moustaches and men’s health. Here tonight I am focusing on a few of my favorite wild mushrooms I use as food, teas and spices on a regular bases and are safe and powerful medicinals as well. These mushrooms are well worth doing a little internet research on.

Turkey tail

Interestingly enough some of the best medicinal mushrooms for good  prostate health happen to be growing wild in temperature regions in much of the northern hemisphere during November. Including –wild oyster mushroom, turkey tail, velvet foot and chaga.

velvet foot

Chaga for all round good mental and physical health.

Hen of the woods (maitake), another medicinal all-star which usually appears in September under oak trees.

There are plenty of other healthy local wild foods as well, enjoy the best nature so willingly gives itself. These are good, I’m not eating these just for my health you know. ciao

    I recognize the turkey tail and wild oyster variety for sure. Quite a bit of both around these parts. Love the “mush-tache”. Perfect for Movember. 🙂 have a great day.

    I enjoyed your article, if I migh also add… A great fitness tip is
    to follow a set order when working out. First, use dumbbells.

    Then, use barbells. Finally, use machines. You use this order because
    dumbbells focus on the smaller, stabilizer
    muscles that fatigue faster than the larger muscles. Once your smaller muscles are exhausted, move on to the machines to hit
    the larger muscle groups.
