Treatment with fly agarics: miraculous properties of a poisonous mushroom
Amanita is, perhaps, the most attractive and beautiful mushroom. But the bright color is not indicative of the tremendous taste, but of the presence of a large concentration of poisonous components, such as muscimol, muscarin, muscaridine, zheotenic acid. However, in small doses, these substances can be used for medicinal purposes.
It is noteworthy that the mushrooms include not only traditional red mushrooms with whitish dots, but white and pale toadstool( deadly poisonous), imperial mushroom, lone fly agaric( edible) and many more.
The most pronounced therapeutic properties have amanita muscaria. For this species is characterized by the presence of a hat with a diameter of up to 20 centimeters. It should be noted that the young mushroom cap is spherical, and as it grows, it acquires a specific flat-convex shape. Amanita muscaria is often strewn with white or yellowish-red specks( warts).Its flesh, tasteless and practically odorless, has a white color. The stem is cylindrical with a hanging ring.

The use of it in food provokes the excitation of the nervous system, the manifestation of increased activity and the occurrence of hallucinations. Overdose can lead to poisoning, falling into a coma or even fatal.
