We have been asked about the mushrooms we use in our tinctures. We do not harvest them ourselves, they are organically grown under strict environmental conditions.
This, from the grower’s website, tells you a little more about it:
“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.”
We use three types of mushroom powder in our Cinnamon Hot Cocoa Mix with Mushroom: Lion’s Mane, Reishi and Turkey Tail. We also make alcohol tinctures out of these and several other mushrooms (including a compound tincture made from all of them together).
Tinctures have the benefit of convenience and preserving the product. You put the drops in water and do not have to swallow a pill. The Mushroom Compound tincture tastes good in a cup of coffee. Another benefit of using tinctures is that they do not have to go through the digestive system before being absorbed into the system, they go directly to the bloodstream because of the alcohol (food for thought there). Even for children, a tincture can be made into a “tea” with boiling water, which will evaporate the alcohol.
We are proud of our selection of tinctures, including the Mushroom tinctures.
