I love mushrooms, however, they gives me a bad reaction (bloating, gas etc...) I only tried three varieties: the common ones you buy in stores: chitake, the while ones, and another type, the name escapes me now.
Do you guys recommend I take a mushroom pill? like this one: http://www.swansonvitamins.com/swanson-premium-full-spectrum-14-mushroom-complex-60-veg-caps
Will the side effects go away if I take a pill instead of the real food?

as an amateur naturopath i have been supplementing with medicinal mushrooms for years. The main ones i have been consuming are: Reishi, Cordyceps and Agarikon. I source them from fungiperfecti, which is founded by paul stamets the leading authority on mycomedicinal and mushrooms in general worldwide. I dont work for them or anything but i find their products SUPERIOR in all respects. The benefits of my particular blend are numerous.. and are easily researched if you are interested.
However to answer your question, some people have had reduced bloating from supplementing, only way to find out is to try it! id say it will be less (perhaps) as you are taking a smaller amount of dry mycelium.
The source of the mushrooms are very key in regards to the benefits they will give to you..
In good health!!
