Key Factors to Identify the Most Potent Medicinal Mushroom Products

In today’s market flooded with functional mushroom extracts, tinctures, capsules, and powders, discerning the highest-quality and most bio-available options can be a daunting task. To simplify your selection process, we’re here to share factors to watch out for and reasons we chose our mushroom range.

  • Di Tao: A Concept of Authenticity

In Daoist practice, there exists a concept known as Di Tao, which pertains to herbs originating from their spiritual homeland. For these herbs to have the most profound effects on the human body, their regions and sources must be genuine and authentic. Plants inherently reflect their environment and conditions. By ensuring that the soil, water, and air are uncontaminated (which is why we source our herbs from remote, industrialization-free areas), we maintain the integrity of these herbs in their motherland.

Our medicinal mushrooms originate from pristine regions of China, free from chemical pesticides or fertilizers. The pure water flows from the mountains, and the forests where these herbs flourish cannot be easily certified as organic. However, the methods and environments in which these herbs are cultivated make them certifiably magnificent.

  • Wood-Grown Mushrooms

Ensure your extracts are derived from ‘Di Dao’ or wood-grown mushrooms. Wood provides the ideal substrate for functional mushrooms, offering rich nutrients that enhance their potency. Wood-grown mushrooms also contain higher levels of beneficial compounds like beta-glucans and triterpenoids.

  • 100% Fruiting Body 

Seek mushroom extracts containing 100% mushroom-fruiting body. This choice ensures maximum potency and effectiveness while minimizing potential contaminants.

The exception is Cordyceps Sinensis which was cultivated in a vegan-friendly most efficient liquid fermentation method which eliminates all the growing medium. If you are after a fruiting body of Cordyceps we recommend our Cordyceps Militaris.

  • Wild and Sustainably Harvested Mushrooms 

Support sustainable harvesting practices that preserve ecosystems and local communities. Sustainably harvested mushrooms are harvested at the optimal time and processed to maintain beneficial compounds while reducing contamination risks.

  • Dual Extraction for Comprehensive Benefits 

Choose products created through dual extraction, which utilizes both water and organic alcohol to extract fat-soluble adaptogenic terpenoids and water-soluble compounds like polysaccharides and beta-D-glucans. This ensures you receive a full spectrum of benefits.

There is no alcohol residue left in our medicinal mushroom range and safe for those who are sensitive to any alcohol or choose not to consume it for any reason. 

Now that you’re well-versed in the world of functional mushrooms you can confidently pick mushrooms that guarantee top-notch quality and remarkable potency.
