The Tremella mushroom, or Tremella fuciformis, is a medicinal and edible species of fungus, loaded with vitamin D and antioxidants.
Many of Tremella’s health benefits are due to its high amounts of polysaccharides which are antioxidants that can help keep skin hydrated and healthy. Additionally, the high amounts of vitamin D in play a role in its skin-boosting and cell growth.
Tremella mushrooms are packed with polysaccharides which have been shown to have both anti-aging and antioxidant effects because of their ability to prevent cell damage that’s caused by free radicals. Tremella extract reduced apoptosis (natural cell death for human growth and development) in human skin fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are cells that synthesize collagen, as well as produce the framework for body tissue and play a major role in wound healing.
