Mushrooms have a long history of use as a therapeutic agent in traditional cultures, and their diverse applications are now being recognized by scientific research. Studies have shown that mushrooms contain many properties that may benefit our health. For instance, Turkey Tail may assist with maintaining a healthy liver function, and Cordyceps may help support our respiratory function. And yet, some mushrooms could provide assistance when we really need it. For example, other studies show that Lion’s Mane may promote focus and Red Reish may provide a good night's rest. Indeed, each of these healthy mushrooms offers unique benefits that can be gained through supplements!
We meticulously craft our mushroom supplements over a period of 100 days using a triple-extraction process. Our unique method begins by steam processing each batch of mushrooms which initiates the deterioration of the tough chitin in the cell walls. Our fermentation bath follows this to increase the bioavailability of polysaccharides, triterpenoids, and alkaloids. Polysaccharides are extracted through hot-water extraction, while triterpenoids and other beneficial compounds require a 90-day alcohol extraction process.
All our supplements are third-party lab tested for quality assurance before hitting the shelves, and we always have current COAs available to share the test results. All extracts undergo our specialized formula combination before being certified organic, followed by third-party testing for purity and potency assurance. We guarantee that our mushroom supplements are crafted to the highest level of quality possible.
We must use a specialized extraction method to extract all the beneficial compounds from raw mushrooms, where they are trapped within indigestible chitinous cell walls. Every form of the process is tailored to release specific molecules from the mushrooms to increase the bioavailability of the beneficial compounds when consumed. With these methods in place, you will be able to enjoy all the benefits that each healthy mushroom may offer! Our Triple-Extraction Process allows us to obtain nearly 100% of the beneficial polysaccharides, triterpenoids, and alkaloids! While other manufacturers’ extraction only yields a fraction in comparison.
Mushroom fruiting bodies are visible elements, such as the cap, stem, and gills, that can be seen above ground. Mycelium refers to the "root-like" growth below ground that spreads widely. While both possess beneficial components, many mushroom supplements use only fruiting bodies.* We prefer to use both fruiting bodies and mycelium as we believe this combination provides the best results.
And we guarantee that our trusted farmers take the proper time to cultivate mushrooms slowly and carefully. At this rate, the mycelium is allowed to grow until it is ready, no matter how long that takes. A longer growth cycle allows the mycelium to spread and take over the substrate almost entirely when harvest time arrives. By taking this approach, less than 5% of the growth material remains in the final product - resulting in a superior-quality extract that contains beneficial compounds in mushroom fruiting bodies and mycelium!
In contrast, when growers rush through the process and give the mycelium only weeks to grow, there will be significantly higher amounts of the leftover substrate (mostly grain-filled mycelial biomass) which can result in lower-quality extracts.
Mushroom supplements are products that contain extracts from various types of mushrooms, such as shiitake, reishi, cordyceps, lion's mane, and others. These extracts are often taken in the form of capsules, powders, glycerites, and tinctures.
Mushroom supplements are believed to have various health benefits, as mushrooms are rich in many different bioactive compounds, including polysaccharides, beta-glucans, terpenoids, and other phytochemicals. These compounds are thought to have immune-boosting and other properties that may help support overall health and well-being.
While mushroom supplements are generally considered safe, it's important to note that they can interact with certain medications and may not be appropriate for everyone. It's always a good idea to consult with a healthcare provider before taking any new supplement.
Absolutely! There are many blended formulas out there that combine multiple types of mushroom extracts into one supplement. Blended mushroom supplements are also referred to as “complex blends.” We call this process of mixing and matching custom mushroom blends “stacking.” Experiment with what you like —there's no one right way to do it!
Of course, we hope that you always love our products. But if you don’t, we offer a 30-day 100% money-back guarantee on all our products. If they are not what you expected, please just share proof that you have recycled the packaging, and you will be refunded!
● Read the label
Always read the label and follow the instructions carefully. Some supplements may have specific dosages or instructions that should be followed to maximize their effectiveness and minimize any potential side effects.
● Take with food if needed
Some supplements may cause stomach upset if taken on an empty stomach, so it's often recommended to take them with food. However, this can vary depending on the supplement, so be sure to read the label or consult with a healthcare professional.
● Stick to recommended dosages Taking too much of a supplement(s) can be harmful, so it's important to stick to the recommended dosages. Look at the packaging for specific dosage suggestions for each supplement type. Taking more than the recommended amount does not necessarily increase the benefits and can actually cause adverse effects.
● Store properly
Supplements should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. This can help prevent the degradation of the active ingredients and maintain their effectiveness.
We have worked with the same trusted farm and experienced farmers for over 1 years! Our mushrooms are grown with care, using sustainable and organic methods, in North America. Each and every mushroom we use in our formulations is USDA-Certified Organic!
Certainly! Our mushrooms undergo heavy metal testing, mycotoxins, and other lab tests. Refer to each product page, showing the product's COA (certificate of analysis) with the lab test results.
Alcohol is used in our mushroom supplements to extract triterpenoids and other beneficial compounds. It is also a natural way to preserve herbal and mushroom products.
Yes, all of our mushroom supplements will eventually expire. However, the shelf-life usually lasts a long time. Most of our supplements offer a two-year lifetime before going bad or expiring. For specific questions about yours, reach out to us: email@example.com
We triple-extract our mushrooms to deliver the best nature has to offer. This triple-step process ensures that our products offer the highest bioavailable levels possible.
The best time to take them is when you want to — or when you’ll remember. Some people take them in the morning; others opt for the evening. It depends on the person, their intentions, and the mushroom supplements they chose. For instance, some people take energizing supplements in the morning and others take calming supplements in the late afternoon or early evening.
