ORGANIC MUSHROOM EXTRACT CAPSULES

100% Fruiting Bodies

STANDARDISED TO 50% POLYSACCHARIDES

ABOUT OUR EXTRACTS

The Difference

Cultivated on Substrate as Nature Intended

Our certified organic mushrooms are cultivated on wood-rich substrate or equivalent to their natural habitat, contributing to a wider spectrum of essential bioactive nutrients.

Fruiting Bodies V Mycelium

Our Organic Mushroom Extract Powders are obtained by extraction of the mushrooms fruiting bodies, which are proved to be much richer in bio-active ingredients and more abundant in beta – glucans – rich polysaccharides, triterpenes, sterols and polyphenols, than mushrooms extracted from mycelium.

Dual Extract

We use advanced enzymatic preparations and temperature – controlled, dual extract technology to extract the potent bio- active components found inside the mushroom cells; the advanced production method supports the highest levels of active nutrients to be captured.

STANDARDISED TO 50% POLYSACCHARIDES

Beta-D-Glucans

Our organic mushroom extracts are standardised to 50% beta-D-glucans rich polysaccharides rather than starchy alpha – glucans polysaccharides, resulting in a more potent mushroom product that is not primarily grain, which are common in mushroom extracts from mycelium and those grown on grain substrate.

WHY EXTRACTS?

Why take as an extract and not just eat the mushrooms?

You can eat some of the mushrooms as they are edible, in fact, most of the mushrooms we use in our extracts are eaten in Asia as part of their everyday diet. However, you’ll get more benefits if you use the extract powder. Extracts from mushroom are concentrated forms of glyconutrients and nutritious components present, the process of extraction breaks down chitin in the cell walls which we cannot do as individuals as we lack the enzyme needed to break it down.

NATURALLY AND ORGANICALLY PRODUCED

We want to make our mushroom extracts just like you want your food – to be cultivated – not in a technicians laboratory, but at farmhouses tended by real people.

No Sterile Labratories

Our mushrooms are grown in greenhouses with natural air flow.

No Artificial Lights

We don’t use artificial lighting. Only natural lighting is used for our mushrooms.

No Unnatural Substrates Made of Grains or Rice.

Our mushrooms are grown naturally on substrate materials native to each particular mushroom, not in jars.

THE IMPORTANCE OF CULTIVATION

Why We Grow our Mushrooms On Wood-Substrate

Many producers of mushroom fruiting bodies grow their mushrooms on grain, the issue with this is that the mushroom then absorbs the grain, resulting in a starchy product. But in nature medicinal mushrooms grow on wood!

When we consume mushrooms, we are expecting the nutrients from the mushroom itself, not the grain.

Ironically, some companies are growing grain spawn and selling it as a nutritional supplement, and although there is some mycelium, if you break up the mycelium, you will find that you will predominantly have grain in the product. So, mushroom powders made from grain-grown mycelium or rice-grown mycelium are primarily containing grain powder. What you are left with, therefore, is the material on which the mycelium is cultivated.

What is called mycelium and is marketed as mushroom by companies is often mainly grain spawn — a product that is cultivated on grain or rice in a laboratory.

You can tell a mycelium product by its mildly sweet taste, a bit like breakfast cereal, these products, as you would expect, are mostly starch, and they have few if any of the active compounds which you expected to get when you purchased them. A mushroom grown on wood-substrate and extracted from the fruiting bodies will have a distinctive, powerful mushroom smell and flavour.

FRUITING BODIES ON WOOD

MYCELIUM ON GRAIN

KNOW YOUR MUSHROOMS

The fruiting body of the mushrooms are primarily where the beneficial compounds are located, which is why mushroom growing is essential. In order to use these compounds, the fruiting bodies must undergo an extensive extraction process using several temperatures during various stages which enables us to extract different types of polysaccharides.  This removes and makes compounds bio-available that are locked inside the cell walls of the fruit of the mushroom.

The genuine compounds will actually come from a supplement produced using the whole body of the fruit which has been dual extracted.

Another portion of the mushroom, which is also essential is mycelium. This is the component of the fungus underneath or below a tree bark. The mycelium is generally a white matte mass of tissue that is supplied with nutrients and water through a substrate. The next time you get out into the forest, look for the white strands from the base of a mushroom that runs below the moss. the white strands is the mycelium.

You will find that Mushroom powder products are relatively inexpensive. This is because they are quite cheap to make with minimal effort. Mushroom powders are either created using mycelium that is dried and then turned into powder or simply grinding dried mushrooms into a powder.

The particles concealed in powders of pulverised mushrooms will simply pass through the body intact, while the active compounds obtained from extracted mushrooms are easily absorbed. It is only by using extractions that we can ensure that every capsule contains the amount of beta-glucan we want so that with each effective dose you get the same, carefully controlled amount of beta-glucan and other positive compounds.

Each mushroom species has a distinctive structure, characteristic and nutrient profile
