People use mushrooms from the Paleolithic era or the stone age (from greek palaios– old, lithos-stone). People picked mushrooms to feed themselves. This way, they also learned that some mushrooms can bring them a state of well-being, and even help them overcome diseases, while others are toxic or poisonous. But this knowledge was not immediate; it was gathered for centuries and especially after people got over superstitions and magical thinking.
Few know that humanity could not exist without mushrooms, or perhaps it would look very much different. Without fungi and bacteria, we would suffocate from garbage because these organisms make the decomposition of organic matter to carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and various materials that enter the biological circuit of plants, insects and other microorganisms. Some experts believe that there are about 1.5 million species of fungi of which only 100 000 have been described, of which about 700 species of mushrooms are edible.
Proteins in mushrooms are superior to many proteins in other vegetables, given the content of essential amino acids. After some analyzes, it was established that 100-200 g of dried mushrooms, consumed in a day, can replace the consumption of meat and ensure a normal nitrogen balance.
All these details and much more are known thanks to science. Edible mushrooms, like all types of mushrooms, are studied in scientific labs, so that we keep learning as much as possible about them, as the science advances. Visit https://www.sacredmushroomspores.com/ for more information!
