Chanterelle – Mushroom which has Invaluable Medicinal Value
Do you know that in the world of plants and fungi only chanterelle (Cantharellus cibarius) is resistant to parasites and germs! Chanterelle is one of the few species that will not rot! In this mushroom will never be found worms, bacteria and viruses!
INGREDIENTS CONTAINED IN CHANTERELLE AND ITS USE IN TREATMENT
HINOMANOZA – In the meat of chanterelle is found hinomanoza, a chemical compound which acts on all the parasites in the gut – tapeworms, roundworms, amoebae, bacteria. Chanterelle dissolves and destroys them completely.
ERGOSTEROL found in chanterelles, kill all types of viruses. It is particularly effective in all types of hepatitis. It also cleanses the liver of all poisons and drug residues. Chanterelle is suitable in a condition of mushroom poisoning.
BETA-CAROTENE – chanterelle mushroom contains three times more beta-carotene than carrots. Beta-carotene (provitamin A) is a carotenoid known as a strong antioxidant that protects the entire body from free radicals with a specific effect on the eyes and skin. Helps protect the skin and mucous membranes. Beta-carotene from chanterelles prevents inflammation of the eyes, improves vision, reduces dryness of the skin and mucous membranes of the eye. It is particularly recommended during the summer months as it protects the skin from UV radiation. Beta-carotene also protects the blood vessels (atherosclerosis) not allowing the oxidation of bad cholesterol (LDL). It stimulates production of protein known as connexin, improving the cell exchange so-called small molecules needed for cell renewal. Beta-carotene renews the mucous membranes of the oral cavity (against ulcers) and cervical cells. We emphasize that chanterelle improves eyesight and prevents night blindness.
VITAMIN D – “sun vitamin” – produced by our own body with the help of sunlight (ultraviolet rays) and oils that are found in the skin. When the skin darkens production of vitamin D through the skin stops. The sunscreens with high SPF reduce the production of vitamin D. Medical investigators found that corticosteroids significantly reduce the absorption of vitamin D, as well as drugs used for lowering cholesterol. If we add pollution of the atmosphere then it is not surprising that recent studies in people aged 20-60 years given the alarming result of the 63% of people with a lack of vitamin D (measured in the spring). Do you even know the significance of Vitamin D?! Vitamin D is essential in the health of bones and teeth, metabolic syndrome (obesity), diabetes types I and II (insulin resistance), autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis), osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, bone and muscle pain, colon, bone, prostate and ovary cancer. As our body gets barely 40% of vitamin D through the skin, it is necessary to compensate through food or food supplements. Chanterelle mushrooms are abundant in vitamin D and it is a natural solution for the lack of vitamin D.
OTHER VITAMINS & MINERALS – Chanterelle, unlike other mushrooms, is rich in vitamin C (0.4mg fresh weight), vitamin B1 and B2. Also minerals like calcium, potassium, iron and zinc.
Here we give emphasis on the healing properties of chanterelles although this fungus belongs to the top of savory mushrooms. 100 grams of mushrooms provides only 12 calories.
