Tremella Mushrooms - The Ultimate Beauty

Tremella mushrooms have all that other medicinal mushrooms have to offer.
They also have an added benefit as the ultimate anti-aging beauty
mushroom. Here’s why!
What are Tremella Mushrooms?
The tremella mushroom is an edible species of fungus found in many tropical
and subtropical regions, as well as temperate areas of North America,
Oceania, Europe, and Asia. The fruiting body of the tremella resembles a
gelatinous loofah or bath sponge the color of snow – hence their other
English name, “snow fungus.”.
For over 2,000 years, Chinese and Japanese herbalists have used this
mushroom, whole and extracted, as support for the lungs, brain, stomach,
heart and immune system. In the 8th Century Chinese royalty loved

Tremella’s effect on their skin prompting women world wide to use these skin-
beautifying mushrooms. Today this mushroom can be found in many

technologically advanced beauty and skincare products.

Top Health Benefits of Tremella Mushrooms

We have to begin with the beauty benefit first because this is what Tremella is
best known for.
1: Hydrating Skin and Reducing Wrinkles
Its has high amounts of both polysaccharides, which are antioxidants, and
vitamin D, essential in helping skin cell growth. Together they both repair and
prevent premature skin aging. Vitamin D is also a fat-soluble vitamin, which
means it plays a role in keeping skin hydrated and supple. The water holding
capacity of a Tremella mushroom is almost 500 times its weight.
Some studies have shown that Tremella acts very similar to hyaluronic acid
by pulling moisture to the skin. It has been suggested that since the hydrating
molecules of Tremella are smaller than those of hyaluronic acid they are able
to penetrate the skin faster and more effectively.
Another valuable study is a report from 2018 in Molecular Medicine Reports
where it was shown that Tremella helped play a major role in wound healing,
helping to maintain skin integrity, helping to avoid saggy skin, weaker bones,
and joint stiffness.
Benefit 2:
As with most medicinal mushrooms Tremella offers the same benefits
Strong anti-inflammatory properties. These anti-inflammatory benefits
have greater implications for their ability to fight off inflammatory diseases like
heart disease, high cholesterol, and tumours.
Since Vitamin D is only found in a few food sources or obtained through the
sun, many of us are deficient in Vitamin D. Getting enough Vitamin D is
essential to keeping our immune system and brains healthy. Vitamin D also
helps regulate cell growth.
How To Use:
Tremella mushrooms have a rather mild, yet slightly sweet taste. Add tremella
mushrooms to your favorite soup, dessert, smoothie, juice or more. They
make for a nourishing tea, and can also be incorporated into homemade
skin care products like body butters and face masks.
