Out of 3 million estimated mushroom species that are on earth, only fourteen thousand have been discovered and named by science. Out of those fourteen thousand mushrooms only about twelve are considered “functional mushrooms” or mushrooms used for a specific health benefit. They represent only 0.0004% of all mushrooms and modern science has just begun to grasp the extent of their healing properties.

What & Why?

Indeed, they all contain different molecules such as polysaccharides, triterpenes and polyphenols to name a few; recent studies have proven their ability to treat disorders caused by our modern way of living.

They significantly reduce symptoms like chronic fatigue, anxiety, stress, cardio-vascular issues among many other ailments; however, their benefits do not end there. They are known to be strong immune system boosters, pre-biotics, powerful anti-oxidants and are used by numerous athletes to increase their performances.

At KruSwiss, we believe that “functional mushrooms” are a part of the solution to reconnect ourselves with our mind and strengthen our bodies and tackle the challenges of modern society on our health.



1. Improved Immune System: Certain functional mushrooms are known for their ability to strengthen the immune system. They contain compounds like erinacines and hericenones that interact with the body’s immune cells to help boost resistance to infection and disease.
