Mushrooms have thousands of years of therapeutic use traditional cultures; however, today, the literature is starting to emerge on both their mechanisms and full range of applications. While much of the research has focused on their (a) antioxidant content; (b) ability to regulate the immune system; and (c) ability to combat cancer; they may also play roles in (d) reducing inflammation; (e) combating metabolic syndrome, including diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease; (f) combating pathogenic bacteria, viruses, parasites and other fungi; (g) improving mood, cognitive function and reducing neurodegeneration; and (h) improving organ function.

The first three are focused on is because most medicinal mushrooms are rich sources of antioxidants and have immunomodulatory ability. However, the ability of specific mushrooms to reduce inflammation and improve detoxification pathways which, in conjunction with the former effects, can have broad reaching systemic health benefits. Rather than taking them in isolation, by combining them together, a synergistic effect can be optimized to help achieve optimal health.

A common problem, however, is that their chitinous cell walls impede bioavailability, or adequate absorption of their various bioactive compounds. This makes the extraction method essential. By utilizing a triple extraction method, the full spectrum can be isolated for maximum benefit.

Our farm partners have been growing and extracting mushrooms for 40+ years and mushroom powders simply do not get any better then this. In addition to taking steps to ensure purity and a high constituent content, we are also concerned about providing mushroom products in which the constituents are in a bioavailable form. The main constituents of mushrooms, the 1,3-Beta Glucans, are tightly bound to the cell walls and have a low degree of bioavailability in raw mushrooms.

To overcome this and increase the bioavailability of the constituents, all of our mushrooms undergo a steam activation process that breaks down the cell walls and frees the 1,3-Beta Glucans from the chitin.
