The False Morel is a small mushroom with a cap of 2-10 cm and a stem of 2-3 cm. Stem hollow. In appearance, the mushroom resembles a "brain" or the pulp of a walnut.
The color of the False Morel can vary from yellow to reddish-brown. The color of the stem is white. Greyish, in rare cases with a purple tint. Most often, this fungus can be found in pine silos and deciduous forests on sandy soil. False Morel likes sunny places - clearings, hillocks, burnt meadows and forests. Often found on the sides of forest roads, paths and ditches. The mushroom growth period is relatively short. Related to the region, it is usually from mid-April to June, mid-June growth is also affected by the environmental temperature.
The False Morel is often mistaken for an edible mushroom, but you have to be careful to do so. A substance such as gyromitrin can be found in the fruiting body of the mushroom, which can seriously affect human health. The same applies to the relatives of this mushroom! Gyromythrin is the most in the autumn bee, then in the False Morel , and the most reliable are the big bees, because scientists have not found gyromitrin in them yet - but this does not mean that it could not be there in the future. The gyromitrin content is directly related to the geographical location of the mushroom growth and the environmental temperature. That's why, for example, the autumn mushroom (gyromitra inula) contains gyromitrin in larger quantities, because it grows from the end of June and is exposed to more sunlight and heat (the autumn mushroom is an inedible mushroom). On the other hand, the False Morel and the big boletus are spring mushrooms and the gyromitrin content is in smaller doses,
When gyromitrin enters the body, it paralyzes the central nervous system, destroys the liver and destroys the functioning of the digestive-intestinal tract, in addition, this substance can also change the structure of the blood - as a result, fatal consequences can occur.
For medicinal purposes, in folk medicine, the False Morel is mainly used, the autumn beetroot is used less often (there should be more prior knowledge), while the big beetroot is more often chosen for food.
For medicinal purposes, the preparations of False Morel are used both orally and externally. However, I personally recommend not to use it orally, but if you are sure of what you are doing or you are able to buy a ready-made product that has been tested in the laboratory and you have the recommendations of a knowledgeable fungotherapist, then you can.
But you can safely use this mushroom externally! It is usually prepared as an alcohol or oil extract, in rare cases, specific ointments and gels are also prepared.
False Morel is a miracle cure for various health problems. An ordinary bisit has no peers when it is necessary to treat joint diseases: radiculitis, polyarthritis, osteochondrosis, rheumatism, bony adhesions, bone "horns" on the feet. This is provided by a polysaccharide such as ST4, which is found in the False Morel . It is structurally similar to chondroitin. Chondroitin is an aminopolysaccharide that acts as a material and nutrient for connective tissue, bones and vertebrae. Chondroitin increases the absorption capacity of the vertebral tissue, thanks to which it becomes flexible. One of the main reasons for joint diseases is insufficient blood supply. Polysaccharide ST4 will also help in this situation.
When using the ordinary bisita, it is worth taking vitamin C at the same time, which will enhance the effect of the mushroom, increasing its absorption in the body and speeding up recovery.
The preparations of the False Morel not only relieve pain and remove the pronounced symptoms of the disease, but they also treat the disease at its very root.
Preparations of False Morel are also used in case of lung diseases, by putting compresses on the chest or applying them. It is especially effective to use it in case of chronic bronchitis and lung inflammation.
Let's not forget that False Morel , autumn False Morel and, in perspective, also the great champignon mushroom are poisonous mushrooms and they can cause serious health consequences, therefore, champignon preparations are prohibited:
- During pregnancy and lactation;
- For children up to 12 years of age;
- If you observe individual intolerance.
Bisish preparations are prohibited for children, people with weakened immunity or chronic diseases, especially if they are cardiovascular diseases or gastrointestinal tract diseases. There is an assumption that long-term use of beeswax preparations can affect the heart, especially if there are already problems with the heart!
