Made from Australian-grown Shiitake mushrooms

Shiitake mushrooms are one of the most popular, widely grown mushrooms in the world.

And for good reason.

They're delicious and they boast a range of health benefits. And when you’re not keen on a stirfry (hello, breakfast time), liquid extracts give you access to all the good stuff.

Shiitake mushrooms can support:

  • Immune system — thanks to high levels of copper and beta-glucans
  • Cardiovascular system — thanks to eritadenine and beta-glucans
  • Cholesterol levels — thanks to sterols, polysaccharides, lipids and terpenoids, enzymes which, when combined with eritadenine and beta-glucans, can help lower cholesterol
  • Reduce inflammation — thanks to the compound lentinan, which has been shown to be anti-inflammatory (and is widely used in China and Japan to complement cancer treatment). Importantly, only the Shiitake fruit body (which means the actual mushroom, not the mycelium/roots) contains lentinan.

Frequently asked questions

The cell walls of a mushroom are made of a substance called chitin. It’s a polysaccharide that our bodies can’t actually digest, which is a problem that prevents you from accessing all of the mushroom’s beneficial compounds.

Dual extraction means that our mushrooms are processed twice. Hot water extraction releases some of the beneficial compounds, but some, like sterols and triterpenes, are still locked in. Because we want to make the most of every single ‘shroom, we follow up with an alcohol extraction. Dual extraction ensures that your body can digest as many of the mushroom’s beneficial compounds as possible.

It might surprise you to find out that most “medicinal mushroom” products on the market don’t come from actual mushrooms. In fact, most sellers have never grown a single mushroom. Instead, they grow mycelium, which is basically the roots of the mushroom.

Mycelium is grown on grain, like rice, millet, rye, or wheat. Many sellers grind up the mycelium along with the grain of, say, Shiitake, and sell it as a supplement. The truth is, what the customer ends up with is a product that contains few (if any) beneficial mushroom compounds. Instead, they’ve paid top dollar for a jar full of (mostly) starch.

Look for the words 100% fruit body to ensure you’re buying the good stuff!

Because it’s cheaper and quicker to grow, of course! The problem is, there isn’t hard evidence to show that mycelium is overly beneficial to humans. Graham (our founder and 40-year mycologist) has made the conscious choice to exclude mycelium from his products. 

Here’s why:

Mycelium is full of salt and carbs and offers no proven medicinal benefits

It’s impossible to separate the mycelium from its growing medium (often rice or grain) — including mycelium in medicinal mushrooms powders inevitably introduces fillers that definitely aren’t beneficial

We grow our own mushrooms in Western Australia's most high-tech mushroom growing lab. But there are some that we can't grow ourselves because of our climate and conditions. In this case, we import mushrooms from certified organic growers. This means our customers get the best possible medicinal mushrooms.
