Extraordinary Mushrooms, for your health, by Anima Mundi Herbals

ANCIENT MUSHROOMS

Medicinal mushrooms have been used in traditional and folk medicines since before recorded history. You've probably heard of Ötzi, one of the oldest bodies found frozen in ice around 3300 BCE, which was discovered in an alpine glacier in 1991.
