🍄 Tremella mushroom (Tremella fuciformis) is one of the great superfood mushrooms and longevity tonics in Traditional Chinese medicine. Known as the “beauty mushroom”, this fungi has the appropriate appearance of a loofah shower sponge.
Tremella is an incredible youth-preserving mushroom that has the ability to rejuvenate and moisturise the skin naturally. Tremella contains unique polysaccharide compounds that show remarkable water retaining properties. Its water holding capacity is nearly five hundred times it own weight. This is greater than hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring carbohydrate found in the body that is commonly used in expensive skincare products to retain the skin’s moisture. .
Tremella also stimulates the production of superoxide dismutase (SOD), one of the most important antioxidant enzymes in the body. SOD helps to protect and regenerate the skin.
Yang Guifei (719-756, Tang Dynasty) was one of the “Four Great Beauties” in ancient China and is considered one of the most beautiful women in Chinese history. She was so beautiful that she was referred to as having a “face that would put flowers to shame.” It was reported that one of Yang Guifei’s secrets was to use Tremella mushroom regularly to maintain her glowing complexion and youthful skin.
