Global medicinal mushrooms market: Health-promoting benefits of medicinal mushrooms

One of the growth drivers for the global medicinal mushroom market is the health-promoting benefits associated with the consumption of medicinal mushrooms. Medicinal mushrooms are rich in various nutrients such as vitamin D, potassium, calcium, vitamin B, amino acids, fiber, and other nutrients that are essential for the human body. Medicinal mushrooms help in increasing antioxidant activity. The medicinal mushrooms such as Chaga and Reishi are known for their antioxidant properties. Reishi has been known to reduce free radical activity and is also believed to relax and fortify both mind and body. Furthermore, medicinal mushrooms are known to boost both the levels and activity of many vital components of the immune system in the human body. Chaga mushrooms are known to increase the white blood cell count in the bone marrow. Also, the consumption of Chaga mushroom reduces low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in the blood. These mushrooms also reduce inflammation in colon cells, which can help in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. Thus, with many such benefits, the market is expected to witness a positive outlook during the forecast period.

           According to a senior analyst at Technavio, “One other positive factor that is expected to boost the growth of the medicinal mushroom market is the growing health consciousness among consumers. The growing prevalence of obesity and other health conditions is encouraging health-conscious consumers to opt for food and beverage products that have various functional benefits. Several players in the market are introducing new products that are rich in nutrients and antioxidants and cater to the changing demands of consumers. The health and wellness lifestyle trends are growing in popularity among consumers in the age bracket of 18-32 years. Also, the number of consumers indulging in fitness activities is increasing globally, which is expected to accelerate the demand for medicinal mushroom products during the forecast period.”
