How Tremella Mushrooms Support Wellness and Skin Health

Article at a Glance:

  • True beauty starts internally; skincare products help but can't replace a healthy lifestyle.
  • Emerging research suggests that Tremella may have benefits for healthy skin aging, including collagen production and protection from UV damage.
  • Adding Tremella to your beauty routine is a simple way to support skin health.

Many of us spend large amounts of money on creams, potions, and lotions to keep us beautiful and feeling our best on the outside (the beauty industry is worth nearly $650 billion).[1] While these products have their place in taking care of our skin, true beauty has to originate from the inside.

No matter how many creams or lotions you apply, if you’re not supporting the health of your skin and body on the inside with a nutritious diet, drinking enough water, getting enough sleep, and the right beauty-boosting supplements, the topical products can only do so much.

How can you support your overall wellness and skin health? How can a functional mushroom called Tremella support your goals? Let’s find out.

Skin and Your Health

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, your skin is a window into what’s happening inside your body. Many medical conditions, such as autoimmune diseases, hormonal disruptions like PCOS, or illnesses of the digestive system, have skin-related symptoms.[2]

Lifestyle choices such as smoking, too much sun exposure, lack of sleep, excessive stress, or drinking too much alcohol can also show up on your skin. An unhealthy lifestyle can lead to premature aging, dark circles, wrinkles, or pale, dull skin.

On the flip side, a healthy lifestyle can help your overall wellness and the appearance of your skin. This includes all of the basics you probably already know:

  • Eating a balanced, nutritious diet with lots of fruits and veggies
  • Drinking plenty of water, aiming for at least eight glasses a day
  • Limiting alcohol and not smoking
  • Exercising regularly
  • Getting at least 8 hours of sleep
  • Managing stress
  • Protecting your skin against sun damage

These lifestyle habits help protect you from damage caused by free radicals, compounds that cause oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is the underlying reason for many chronic illnesses, skin issues, and premature aging.[3]

In addition to the habits discussed above, a functional mushroom called tremella may help the body and skin fend off oxidative stress.

Health and Skin Benefits of Tremella

Tremella is a delicate mushroom that resembles an underwater coral. While it has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine for overall health and beauty, scientific research is just starting to evaluate some of its benefits.

Emerging research has found that Tremella contains polyphenol antioxidants and uronic acid that stimulate specific antioxidant pathways. Antioxidants are compounds that reverse oxidative stress. This effect trickles down to both body-wide and skin health.

To get more specific about the skin benefits, a study found that Tremella may help reduce oxidative damage caused by UV radiation, reducing collagen breakdown and protecting skin moisture.[4,5]

Tremella may also help support overall health by promoting a balanced gut microbiome, one of the foundations of true wellness.[6]
