Mushrooms and turmeric are two such trends that have taken the health world by storm in recent years, and for good reason. These two powerhouse ingredients offer a host of incredible health benefits that range from supporting immunity to helping to balance inflammatory factors.

The health benefits of these two amazing plants, mushrooms and turmeric, are becoming more and more well-known thanks to their long history of natural health-boosting properties.

Because of their growing popularity, many foods and supplements have started using them in their ingredients to add extra natural benefits that appeal to the growing market demands.

So, what are the health benefits of these two amazing plants? Let’s take a closer look.

Benefits of Mushrooms

Mushrooms are a great source of protein and fiber.  They’re also low in calories and fat, making them an ideal food for people who are trying to lose weight. Additionally, mushrooms are a good source of vitamins B and C, as well as selenium and potassium.*

Mushrooms have been used for their medicinal properties for centuries, but it’s only recently that they’ve gained popularity in the Western world. There are many different types of mushrooms with a variety of health benefits, but two of the most popular are cordyceps and reishi mushrooms.*

They’re also great sources of nutrients like:*† 

  • Selenium
  • Copper
  • Thiamin
  • Magnesium
  • Phosphorous

Cordyceps mushrooms are most commonly used to support energy levels, stamina, and athletic performance. They’re also said to help with respiratory issues like bronchitis and asthma.*†

Reishi mushrooms are known as the “queen of mushrooms” because of their wide range of health benefits. They’re commonly used to support immunity and improve liver function.*† 

Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric is another ingredient that has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine to help with common issues like fatigue, immune support, kidney disease, and low sex drive. It’s most commonly known for its anti-inflammatory properties, but it also has a wide range of other health benefits.*†

Turmeric is a good source of vitamins C, B, and E, along with other nutrients like iron, potassium, and magnesium.*†

Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is responsible for most of its health benefits and is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect cells from damage that has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of conditions, including arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease.*†

Diane W. has some wonderful things to say about her experience with our turmeric formula, take a look below…

"...My ortho physician said to take Turmeric instead of pain relief medication (which is bad for the stomach) and to continue to use stair steps and walking in my neighborhood (I had physical therapy too). Turmeric by other companies did not work, but your brand gave me the relief needed. Three years later my shoulders, hips and knees are happy as long as I take the Meriva Turmeric plus by Emerald Labs. Thank you for giving not only my life back but my husband’s, too. His aches and pains subsided once he began daily doses of the Meriva Turmeric plus, too. It is a miracle!!! Again, thank you!!!"
