Best Mushroom Supplement for Men (+ Customer Survey)

| Reading time 9 Minutes

Finding the perfect mushroom supplement for men isn’t a one-size-fits-all situation. It all depends on your specific health needs and goals. In this article, we’ll help you discover which mushroom supplements might work best for you.

Possible health issues in men

Men may suffer from heart disease, hair loss, hormonal imbalances, mental health problems, cognitive decline, and prostate problems. Men and women experience many of the same health problems, with the exception of gender-specific problems.

On the psychological front, men may be more likely to experience externalising problems such as aggression, ADHD, and drug or alcohol addiction. This may be because men are more likely to look outward for the cause (and solution) of their problems, and women are more likely to look inward.

They are also less likely to seek help than women, which could lead to symptoms worsening or persisting.

How mushroom supplements can support men

Wholesome nutrition, reduced stress, and a good night’s sleep are essential for optimal health. The right mushroom supplement can be a valuable addition to support these aspects of well-being.

For instance, medicinal mushrooms are known for their adaptogenic properties (they help the body maintain hormone balance), their anti-inflammatory effects (inflammation plays a role in many diseases), and their versatility in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Top 5 best mushroom supplements for men

Lion’s Mane, Cordyceps, Reishi, Chaga, and Turkey Tail are sequentially the most popular mushroom supplements for men.

1. “Lion’s Mane keeps me focused”

Among our male customers, Lion’s Mane is a favourite. We conducted a survey on the use of our mushroom supplements, and here’s what one of our customers shared:

“Lion’s Mane helps me maintain focus incredibly well because I get easily distracted. It might be because I have ADHD. Normally, studying is difficult for me, but with Lion’s Mane, it’s much easier.”

Several studies highlight the positive effects of Lion’s Mane on the brain, especially regarding concentration. Lion’s Mane contains hericenones and erinacins, compounds that can stimulate the production of nerve growth factors. This can help improve cognitive functions and may even offer protection against neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.

Additionally, Lion’s Mane can help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression by supporting overall brain function.

2. Cordyceps for enhanced sports performance and muscle building

The second favorite mushroom supplement among our male customers is Cordyceps (militaris). Research has shown that Cordyceps militaris can improve endurance and oxygen uptake. This enables you to train longer and achieve faster results in terms of muscle gain.

Cordyceps can also help increase testosterone levels and improve overall hormonal balance, which is essential for maintaining energy, libido, and muscle mass.

3. Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) for stress reduction

Reishi contains polysaccharides and triterpenes that can boost the immune system, helping to fight infections. Known as the “divine mushroom of immortality,” Reishi has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine to reduce inflammation and stress and improve sleep quality.

It also contains antioxidants that can help reduce oxidative stress, a factor contributing to heart disease and prostate problems.

4. “Chaga gives me fuller hair”

Like Reishi, Chaga can boost the immune system, which is important for fighting infections and possibly prostate cancer. Additionally, Chaga can help reduce inflammation in the body, which can benefit men with inflammation-related conditions such as arthritis or prostatitis.

Research suggests that Chaga can be more effective than standard hair loss treatments like minoxidil. Some customers who have ordered Chaga report that they have hardly been sick since starting the supplement and that it makes their hair fuller.

“I’ve noticed that my hair seems fuller. My hairline had been receding for a few years, and last year, I had deep inlets that made me very sad. Now, it looks like it’s grown back slightly, with baby hairs appearing where there were none before.”

5. Turkey Tail for Strong Digestion

Turkey Tail contains polysaccharide-K (PSK) and polysaccharide-P (PSP), known for their ability to modulate and strengthen the immune system, helping to fight infections.

Research has shown that Turkey Tail can significantly reduce oxidative stress in rats with type 2 diabetes. The researchers concluded that Turkey Tail could potentially have beneficial effects in preventing complications associated with type 2 diabetes.

The antioxidants in Turkey Tail effectively fight free radicals in the body. Free radicals are molecules that can damage cells, contributing to diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.

Additionally, research indicates that Turkey Tail can help improve the effectiveness of chemotherapy and reduce its side effects. In Japan, PSK from Turkey Tail is used in cancer treatments. Both PSK and PSP have tumor-inhibiting properties, according to research, though more studies are needed to confirm these findings.

Conclusion: which mushroom supplement do you choose?

To recap:

  • For a stronger immune system: Chaga and Reishi in particular can have immune-modulating properties, meaning they can strengthen the immune system and help fight infections.

  • Focus and cognitive support: Lion’s Mane can support the production of nerve growth factors and improves cognitive functions, which is important for the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases.
