Which mushrooms have useful properties for constipation?
Lion’s Mane, Shiitake and Pleurotus are significantly useful in supporting the health of the bowel, balancing gut microbiota (helpful bacteria in gut) and reducing stress to help with constipation.
Lion’s Mane supports regeneration of the lining of both the small and large intestine which can improve gastrointestinal function.
Shiitake is a beneficial mushroom that also supports intestinal flora, the helpful bacteria in the gut. It has a high content of naturally occurring sugars ideal to support bacteria strains (Bifidobacterium breve and Lactobacillus brevis) important in maintaining a healthy gut and regular bowel movements.
