Ethnopharmacological study of fungi's use

Author: SUZANA APOSTOLOVSKA
Abstract: The fungi’s use in folk medicine is thousands of years old. They are valued in different cultures for their nutritional, medical and psychotic features. The historical significance and sociological impact of fungi on humans as a field of research is rather strange theory. The purpose of this study is to outline the impact of fungi in different cultures with emphasis on their traditional use in nutritional and medical purposes. The ethnopharmacological researches on fungi largely rely more on historical, archaeological and literary data and the individual cultures, rather than scientifically proven facts. Initial investigations reflect the use of psychoactive mushrooms of the genus Psilocybe indigenous tribes in Central America (1581, Dijego Duran) and using the fungus Amanita muscaria among Siberian people (1784, Samuel ?dmann). Modern studies are based on researchres documented practice of traditional, medical and culinary use of fungi. The results of these researches notify fungi as promising potential for food supplements and a source of new biologically active compounds.
