Everything To Know About Mushroom Tinctures

Research over the years has shown us the effectiveness of fungi in our diets. They have certain health properties that can combat potential illnesses that may arise in us.

One powerful staple in health and wellness is mushrooms. They’ve long been used to help boost our energy levels and aid in recovery. But trying to find these mushrooms in the wild may not be easy.

If you still want to get the health benefits associated with mushrooms, you can use mushroom tinctures. Read on for more information about what they are and how beneficial they can be for you.


What are Tinctures?

Tinctures are extracts of herbs or other plant material. The ingredients are usually dissolved in a solvent, like alcohol, to extract the vital components of the plant. However, our tinctures go through a triple extraction process.

First, we ferment the mushrooms to make their components more bio-available. Then we extract them again in hot water because some elements will only dissolve in water. Lastly, we soak the mushrooms in alcohol for 90 days because the remaining components can only dissolve in this.

Our extraction process ensures our tinctures don’t leave behind the helpful elements found in the raw mushrooms.

How to Add Mushroom Tinctures to Your Daily Routine


With anything that we practice, consistency is vital. That’s the only way we’ll experience the full benefits.

You should use mushroom tinctures daily so that you can gain the effects of the supplements immediately. However, you must have a regimen for incorporating the tinctures so your body can get adjusted to your diet changes.

As you start experimenting with tinctures, choose low doses first. Start with ½ a dropper, then slowly increase it, depending on your needs and the supplement you choose.

Remember, some tinctures will work better during different activities. For example, you should take Cordyceps  before a workout. It provides an energy boost and enhances your mood. Use Chaga or Reishi in the evening to help with muscle recovery and as a natural pain reliever.

Take your time to find out which tinctures can help you with your daily needs. You can take the supplement directly from the dropper by holding it under your tongue and waiting 30 seconds, or you can add it to a drink.

The tinctures will taste like wild mushrooms and a slight hint of alcohol. But combining them with another product can reduce the taste.


Are Mushroom Tinctures Safe?


Yes, mushrooms tinctures are similar to herbal extracts, meaning they have natural properties in them. Nothing is added to our products to enhance the effects of the mushrooms.

Each mushroom tincture provides a holistic way to help an individual increase their health. But make sure that you double-check with your doctor about adding this supplement to your routine.
