Anti-Inflammatory Effects of Four Psilocybin-Containing Magic Mushroom Water Extracts in vitro on 15-Lipoxygenase Activity and on Lipopolysaccharide-Induced Cyclooxygenase-2 and Inflammatory Cytokines in Human U937 Macrophage Cells
Mushroom tea could be the secret to aging gracefully.
Aging, as well as several chronic diseases like cancer, arthritis, neurodegeneration, chronic depression, and cardiovascular disease, are often tied to pathological inflammation.
A new study from a South African university revealed that psilocybin mushrooms have potent anti-inflammatory properties that could help treat chronic these conditions. Researchers analyzed 4 species of psilocybin mushrooms, which were extracted in hot water, and discovered that they suppressed the body’s inflammatory response by inhibiting several inflammatory proteins.
