What’s Medicinal Mushroom Extract?
Medicinal mushroom extracts are a way to reap the benefits of mushrooms without eating large quantities of them. There are a number of different extraction methods, including using hot water or alcohol, or both. The best choice is an extract that uses both, which is called dual extraction. Essentially, they are concentrated powders that can be added to teas, smoothies or other foods, or taken in capsule form like a pill. They’re rich in compounds such as beta-glucans, triterpenes and ergosterol that support healthy immune function, balance hormones and boost the body’s natural detoxification process.
We offer a diversified range of medicinal mushroom extracts, including Chaga, Reishi, Cordyceps, Shiitake, Lion’s Mane, and Turkey Tail mushrooms. Our mushroom extracts are exclusively extracted from certified organic mushrooms and grown naturally on substrate materials that suit each particular mushroom. We don’t rely on sterile labs or artificial lights, instead, we ensure the perfect growing environment for our mushrooms.
Mushroom Extract VS Powder
Mushroom powder and mushroom extract are two different forms of mushroom products, each with its own characteristics. The mushroom powder is made by drying and grinding mushrooms into a fine powder. On the other hand, mushroom extract involves extracting the bioactive compounds from mushrooms using solvents like hot water or alcohol. The resulting liquid extract is concentrated and may undergo further processing to remove impurities. Mushroom powders are typically easier to incorporate into various recipes and can be added directly to food and beverages. They are often used in cooking, smoothies, or as a supplement in capsules.
Mushroom extracts, being more concentrated, are usually consumed in smaller amounts. They are commonly available as liquid tinctures, capsules, or tablets, and may be taken directly or mixed into drinks. Mushroom extracts often undergo processing techniques that enhance the bioavailability of the bioactive compounds, making them more readily absorbed by the body. The extraction process allows for a higher concentration of beneficial compounds, such as polysaccharides, triterpenes, and other active constituents found in mushrooms. This means that a smaller quantity of extract may be needed to achieve similar effects as a larger quantity of powder. However, the presence of other compounds in mushroom powder, such as dietary fiber, can have its own benefits in terms of digestion and overall gut health.
