Medicinal Mushrooms, The Ultimate Superfood, Mushroom Extracts
WHO WE ARE
Mycology4Life is dedicated and committed to supplying 100% pure organic, naturally grown medicinal mushrooms extracts. We carry 7 different mushroom extracts and each of them have their own health benefits.
Medicinal mushrooms are superfoods and are essential to our everyday diet! Packed with nutritional value, low in calories, a great source of fiber and protein, they provide many important nutrients, including B-vitamins, selenium, potassium, copper, and vitamin-D, and are full of as many antioxidants as colored fruits and vegetables. They also include Beta-Glucans, which are responsible for the immune-modulating effects. They are a source of soluble fiber and have been used for a variety of medicinal purposes. Beta-Glucans are crucial weapons to everyday health. Good for plant-based diets.
In 2017, while earning a degree in Alternative Medicine, I begin extensive research for bone cancer at which time I came upon the anti-cancerous effects of Turkey Tail mushrooms. At that time, I discovered the medicinal healing properties of edible mushrooms. It is our passion and commitment to learn about and supply the highest quality mushroom extracts so that every one may benefit from these amazing SuperFungi!
THIS MEANS WE CAN GUARANTEE OUR CUSTOMERS A PURE QUALITY LINE OF PRODUCTS OF ORGANICALLY CERTIFIED MUSHROOM POWDERS AND EXTRACTS.
We are passionate about supplying a product that is 100% organic, natural, high in Beta-Glucans from mushrooms grown on log substrates; not grain-based mycelium.
MUSHROOMS GROWN ON GRAINS
The medicinal mushroom marketplace is dominated by products that do not contain any mushrooms. These products are produced from mycelium, meaning the the root system of the mushroom is being grown on grains (wheat, rye, brown rice, white rice, bird seed, even popcorn) if the grain is not separated from the mycelium these products contain no mushrooms at all, but contain mostly grain and starch, also known as alpha-glucans.
Many consumers and health practitioners are being misled into believing they are consuming mushrooms when in fact the products are nothing more than mycelium cultured grain with very little medicinal and nutritional compounds.
MUSHROOMS GROWN ON LOGS
Mushrooms are produced on natural substrates; nutrient-enriched sawdust logs. The natural substrates logs contain all the essential nutrients and proper growth.
Exceptions include reishi and shiitake, which are grown on individual hardwood logs in the ground, and cordyceps is cultured in a closed vessel with a liquid substrate containing essential nutrients.
Mushrooms grown naturally receive complex compounds from natural light, fresh air, and natural water. Most people today are seeking naturally grown products, not artificially-made. Wouldn't you agree?
NUTRITIONAL BREAKDOWN OF MUSHROOMS
In general, mushrooms are roughly 25% protein, 58% carbohydrates, and 3% fat. The rest is vitamins and minerals. One gram of our mushrooms is approximately 3-4 calories.
Our basic recommendation is not to exceed 3-5 servings per day until you have consulted your physician.
ARE THEY WORKING?
Medicinal mushrooms are adaptogens and work over long periods of time, similar to other essential nutritional compounds, like fruits and vegetables.
The benefits of medicinal mushrooms are obtained through extended use, and are not necessarily something you can "feel" right away like caffeine or aspirin.
