Anti-inflammatory effects of four psilocybin-containing magic mushroom [psilocybe & panaeolus] water extracts
Mushrooms were grown and extracted with boiling hot water. Effects of the four water extracts on 15-LOX activity were determined… natural [fungi] with medicinal properties have been used to treat all sorts of inflammatory conditions and studies have shown that natural products have advantageous structural diversity over synthetic compounds, which thus make them a potential source of novel compounds with potent anti-inflammatory activity.
Extracts were safe at the concentration studied and inhibited the LPS-induced production of pro-inflammatory mediators, TNF-α and IL-1β significantly and lowered IL-6 and COX-2 concentrations in treated human U937 macrophage cells… [strains grown and hot-water extracted included] Panaeolus cyanescens, Psilocybe natalensis, Psilocybe cubensis and Psilocybe cubensis leucistic A+ strain) from genus Panaeolus and Psilocybe.
