Whole/ Sliced Dehydrated Birch Polypore Mushroom.

Birch polypore mushroom has a tough, woody texture and a distinctive shape, with a flat, circular cap that can grow up to 30 cm in diameter. The upper surface of the cap is reddish-brown, while the lower surface is white with tiny pores. It is commonly stored in dried form, and can be brewed into a tea or used in various preparations such as tinctures or extracts.

Why Should Someone Buy It? Birch polypore mushroom is a highly valued medicinal mushroom that has a long history of use in traditional medicine. It is prized for its immune-boosting, anti-inflammatory, and digestive health properties, and has a range of uses that make it a valuable addition to any natural health regimen. Additionally, Birch polypore is considered safe for most people, making it an accessible and easy-to-use natural remedy

Popular Uses:

  1. Immune System Support: Birch polypore is known to contain beta-glucans, a type of complex carbohydrate that helps to strengthen the immune system and fight off infections.

  2. Anti-inflammatory Properties: Birch polypore has been shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, making it useful for treating a range of inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis.

  3. Digestive Health: Birch polypore contains polysaccharides that can help to improve digestion and promote a healthy gut microbiome.

  4. Topical Use: The mushroom can be used topically to treat skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne.

  5. Tea: Dried Birch polypore can be brewed into a tea and consumed as a daily tonic to support overall health.

Our favorite prep method:

  • 2-3 dried Birch polypore slices (about 2-3 inches each)
  • 3 cups of water

Instructions:

  1. Add the Birch polypore slices to a medium-sized pot.
  2. Pour 3 cups of water over the Birch polypore slices, and bring the mixture to a boil.
  3. Reduce the heat and let the tea simmer for about 20-30 minutes. You can cover the pot if you wish.
  4. After 20-30 minutes, turn off the heat and let the tea cool for a few minutes.
  5. Strain the tea through a fine-mesh strainer or a cheesecloth to remove any mushroom pieces.
  6. Pour the tea into a cup, and serve hot.

You can also add a squeeze of lemon or honey to the tea for extra flavor. Birch polypore tea has a slightly bitter taste, so you may want to adjust the amount of mushroom slices to suit your taste preferences. Additionally, you can reuse the Birch polypore slices to brew a second or third batch of tea, as they contain beneficial compounds that may still be present after the first brew
