100% Mushroom Extract Powders
Mushroom's have a tough cell wall made up of chitin which human's have a hard time digesting. This cell wall limits our access to the important medicinal compounds which give mushrooms their wonderful benefits.
Extraction is required in order to "break down" the cell wall and make the bioactive compounds more bioavailable to us. It's important that any medicinal mushroom product be extracted.
All Real Mushrooms products are extracted from 100% organic mushrooms (fruiting bodies).
Scientifically Verified for Actives
Many products talk about all the wonderful compounds in mushrooms but never actually show you that the product contains these compounds.
Well we do. Beta-glucans are the primary active ingredient in these fungi that much of the research and great benefits are based around.
All Real Mushrooms products have measured levels of beta-glucans verified by 3rd party laboratories.
No Grain Fillers!
Many medicinal mushroom products do not actually contain any mushrooms. They are made from the mushroom's root system, called mycelium, and this mycelium is grown on grains like rice, oats and sorghum.
So not only do these products not contain any mushrooms but this grain that the mycelium grows on end up in the final product severely diluting the product you're paying good money for.
All Real Mushrooms products are 100% mushroom with no grains, mycelium or fillers.
POTENT 5 MUSHROOM EXTRACT BLEND: Every 2 capsules of 5 Defenders is equivalent to almost 10 grams of dried mushrooms. Contains extracts made exclusively from 100% organic reishi, chaga, maitake, shiitake and turkey tail mushrooms. Hot water and/or alcohol extractions are used to obtain the beneficial beta-glucans and triterpenes, plus thousands of other nutrients from the mushrooms. These mushrooms are the most well known for boosting your immunity.
WHY EXTRACTS: The bulk of the scientific research on medicinal mushrooms and traditional use is based on extracts from the mushroom (fruiting body). Extraction breaks down the mushroom cell wall to allow our bodies to access these beneficial compounds. Real Mushrooms strictly uses extracts to be consistent with the research so you can be confident in obtaining the benefits of medicinal mushrooms. Un-extracted mushroom products are largely indigestible to us.
GUARANTEED POTENCY: All our products are guaranteed by analytical testing to have the active, medicinal compounds scientifically shown to boost your immune system. Our extract contains >20% Beta-glucans, >4% reishi triterpenes and <5% Starch. Beta-glucans are the main active, most well researched, medicinal compound in mushrooms. We measure beta-glucans specifically because polysaccharides numbers include starch, so polysaccharide testing yields a false sense of quality.
MADE FROM REAL MUSHROOMS: All of our products are made exclusively from the mushroom (fruiting body). Beware, many other mushroom products are not actually made from mushrooms but are made from mycelium (mushroom root system) grown on grain. Independent analysis has shown that these products are primarily grain with very little of the active medicinal compounds. Read the supplements panel very carefully and look for terms like mycelium, biomass, full spectrum, myceliated.
100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEED: If for some reason, you are not satisfied with our mushroom extract powders we provide a no-hassle no-questions-asked refund. Just contact us directly with your order number and we’ll happily provide you with a full refund.
