What is Mycelium?

Mycelium (plural = mycelia) is the vegetative part of a fungus: the unseen "roots" of a mushroom. Fungus and their mycelia can be found growing throughout an amazing variety of biological substrates periodically making themselves known through the "flowering" of their reproductive aspect: what most people know as the mushroom (also known as the "fruiting body")

What are the Medicinal Mushroom Powders made of?

The powders are made from finely ground medicinal mushroom mycelium and fruiting bodies. These bits of mycelium and fruiting body are cultivated in a sterile mycological laboratory - originating from vigorous strains of the noted medicinal species that have been meticulously selected by our mycologists. Through rigorous quality control, a standardized level of growth is achieved before the species are processed in to a bio-available form of medicine for consumption.

Why would I want to use Medicinal Mushrooms?

For centuries, medicinal mushrooms have been used and prescribed as treatments and preventatives in relation to a wide variety of illnesses. Specifically, medicinal mushrooms have been used immune stimulants, immune modulators, adaptogens, and antioxidants. Over thirty species are commonly used as medicinals in the form of mycelium and/or mushroom fruiting-body. The most well known and researched of these species are Reishi, Maitake, Lion's Mane, Cordyceps, Blazei, Split-Gill, Turkey Tail, and Shiitake. However, many other mushrooms are currently being used medicinally and have shown positive clinical results including Mesima, Agarikon, Chaga, Oyster, Tinder Polypore, and Enoki among others. All of the medicinal mushroom species mentioned have been shown to be rich in "essential sugars" and contain numerous constituents that have a variety of physiological effects.
