Medicinal Mushrooms: Tremella Extract 100g

$7260 AUD

In times past, tremella (like many of the wonderful tonic herbs we work with) was preserved mainly for Chinese royalty and the upper class, as well as spiritual seekers. Tremella is used in Chinese medicine to support Lung Yin and to moisten the lungs. It is especially helpful for treating non-productive, dry coughs and Lung Yin deficiency. In addition to its respiratory benefits, tremella has been heavily associated with beauty throughout the Orient, as well as longevity and preserving youth (in TCM, the Lungs govern the health of the skin, so well-functioning Lungs equal beautiful skin).

Tremella is also used during periods of convalescence and restoration, such as during the postpartum period, to support healing. Being mucilaginous and gentle on the body, it's also known to nourish and soothe the Stomach, especially Stomach Yin. Tremella has sweet and neutral properties

Yang Guifei, named as one of the four most beautiful women in China's history, lived during the Tang dynasty times. A daily dose of tremella was thought the secret behind her beauty and ageless complexion.

This hydrating, beautifying herb is packed-full of potent antioxidants that create a radiant complexion and bring lubrication (Yin) to our deepest tissues and vital organs.

Modern investigations have revealed that one of tremella’s most unique properties is its ability to stimulate hyaluronic acid production and draw moisture back into the skin. It has also been said that tremella’s capacity to store water is 500 times that of its own weight. Hyaluronic acid is a gelatinous compound that exists in fluids and aids as a hydrating lubricant to joints, muscles, eyes, and skin. The production of this substance in humans is known to decline with age.

The biggest challenge with tremella is not heaping spoon after spoon into your mouth. It’s such a gift that something that tastes so good can also be so good for you. Tremella's creamy, malty characteristics upgrade any tonic or recipe that it is included in while delivering some youthful love to the lungs and skin.

Traditionally used in Chinese medicine to:

  • Nourish Lung Yin
  • Promote longevity
  • Restore vitality through nourishing the Yin
