This high-potency formula is the only medicinal mushroom combination product sold in North America that is made exclusively from hot water extracts.
This unique formula combines the best of 5 medicinal mushrooms extracted using the hot water extraction method. The only method used in thousands of clinical studies. The hot water extraction method has been used for centuries in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine).
Why hot water extraction?
BIOAVAILABILITY – The immune supporting polysaccharides common to all medicinal mushrooms and mushroom mycelium are found inside of the cell walls. However, the cell walls of the mushrooms and mushroom mycelium are made from an indigestible fiber called "chitin," the same material a lobster shell is made of.
Hot water extraction is the only clinically validated method for breaking these polysaccharides out of the indigestible cell walls. Even soft mushrooms like Shiitake are prepared as a hot water extract or a tea when used medicinally.
CONCENTRATION – The immune supporting polysaccharides found in the cell walls of mushrooms and mushroom mycelium comprise only 0.5-2% of the total mass by dry weight (depending on the mushroom), not enough to have effect even if they were bioavailable. Most hot water mushroom/mycelium extracts are at least a 20:1 concentration.
Hot water extraction dissolves the indigestible fiber (chitin), allowing the fiber to be removed from the extract when the water is removed. This process concentrates the polysaccharides to the effective levels identified in the published research.
Adults, take 1-3 capsules, twice daily, on an empty stomach.
