In this 45-minute webinar for healthcare practitioners, with an additional 15 minutes for question, Prof. Manuela Pintado will describe how over the past 10 years, there has been much research effort focused on trying to understand the role of mushroom nutrition in slowing the onset and progression of neurodegenerative conditions. The critical question is ‘How does mushroom supplementation promote neurological health?’
In working to answer to this question, scientists have established that, in rodents, specific mushroom species are able to reduce neuroinflammation via upregulation of Lipoxin A4 (a potential endogenous anti-inflammatory mediator),[1,2] and increase neurological reserve by generating new neurons. There is also an increasing body of evidence to suggest that mushroom nutrition might also act indirectly via the gut microbiota.
