Mushroom Articles & Books | NAMMEX What's New Archive

As a service to our customers NAMMEX has listed many of the popular articles on medicinal mushrooms that have appeared over the last ten years. This listing is designed to demonstrate the extent to which mushrooms have reached the general public through consumer as well as trade publications. It is also designed to assist those looking for further information on medicinal mushrooms.

We have also listed books that we believe serve as excellent sources of more technical information. There is a significant amount of published scientific research on specific mushrooms that is too extensive to list here. Much of this literature is published in the bibliographies of the books shown.

NAMMEX Mushroom Information

Educating people about medicinal mushrooms is one of our primary roles at NAMMEX. We offer the following articles and references to help you understand these mushrooms and make informed decisions regarding their use.

The Health Benefits of Mushrooms
They seem to come out of nowhere. In areas where there was no visible sign of their presence, they suddenly appear - overnight, or so it seems. Such is the nature of mushrooms, the higher order organisms of the world of fungi. Everyone has had some encounter with mushrooms. Read more here...

What is the D-Faction in Maitake Mushrooms?
One of the most exciting new mushrooms to emerge is maitake, Grifola frondosa. A choice edible that is highly prized by wild mushroom hunters, maitake is now being cultivated thereby insuring a steady supply for the first time. A mushroom without the common cap and gills, this polypore has multiple branching stems with flowery ruffled caps. Although there is scant evidence of use in traditional Chinese medicine, recent scientific research in Japan has shown maitake to contain significant active polysaccharides. Read more here...
What You Should Know About Medicinal Mushrooms
Over the past twenty years there has been a steady flow of articles on reishi, shiitake, cordyceps, maitake and their healing properties. This flow has increased dramatically, to the point where in 2010, articles appear in many separate publications as well as youtube videos. Whereas there were only 2 or three mushroom products on the market twenty years ago, today there are hundreds, with more appearing each day. It is not surprising, considering that reishi has a history of use that spans 2 thousand years and is as highly revered in the Orient as ginseng. In fact, one could readily compare its market potential to ginseng. Read more here...
Active Compounds in Reishi Mushrooms
This article lists the Active Compound, Compound Type, Action and Plant Part and is adapted from 'Reishi Mushroom: Herb of Spiritual Potency and Medical Wonder'. Read more here...
Shiitake Mushrooms
In North America, mushrooms have been feared more than prized, and in our markets until very recently, we have been offered little more than the common button mushroom. Yet in Europe and Asia, mushrooms occupy a special place and their markets offer dozens of tasty species to choose from. What do they know that we have forgotten? Read more here...
