Here at Phytoextractum, we’re excited to be able to offer a wide variety of products in many categories that may be able to help you have a better life. One of our products that are growing in popularity is our mushroom products.
In all, we have 12 different mushroom products. Each of these amazing mushrooms has its own benefits and characteristics. Today, you’ll get to learn all about the mushroom that we have to offer!
Whole Mushrooms & Powders
The first categories of mushroom products that we have are whole mushrooms and mushroom powders. As powders are largely more popular, we have a larger variety of them available at this time. We also stock plenty of encapsulated mushroom powders, both individual mushroom varieties and blends.
With the exception of the Inonotus obliquus Chaga Mushroom products, all of our products are what is known as pure mycelium mushroom powder. Mycelium is extracted from the mushrooms through a liquid extraction process and has benefits very similar to whole mushrooms. Mycelium can be purified and is often used in wellness products.
Let’s get to know these mushroom products.
Antrodia is traditionally grown on the bark of a cinnamon tree known as Cinnamomum kanehirai. This tree is native to the high altitude mountainous regions of Taiwan, but the trees have become protected due to over-harvesting. Antrodia is now harvested more sustainably.
Next up is Cordyceps militaris, a mushroom powder that originates at high altitudes in China and around the world where it grows on a caterpillar. In traditional Tibetan medicine, this mushroom was used to restore general wellness.
Ganoderma lucidum is a Reishi mushroom powder that grows on many different hardwoods around the world; in fact, this is one of the easiest mushrooms to grow due to its hardiness.
Grifola frondosa is also known as the maitake mushroom. Traditionally, maitake mushrooms have been known to help regulate various systems of the body.
Next up is Hericium erinaceus, also known as Lion’s Mane mushroom powder. In Chinese medicine, these varieties of mushrooms have been used for thousands of years.
Inonotus obliquus – Chaga Mushroom Powder & Whole Mushroom
The Inonotus obliquus is available as both a mushroom powder and a whole mushroom product. Chaga mushrooms like Inonotus obliquus have roots in Russian medicine.
Lentinula edodes is the overarching species of shiitake mushrooms. These mushrooms have been a popular food for many years, and their benefits are more than just caloric! This is a very adaptable mushroom that can grow around the world, but it was originally found in China and Japan.
The King Oyster mushroom is found around the world but originally was cultivated in Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and northern African regions. Like other oyster mushrooms, they have a thick, meaty body.
Trametes versicolor, also known as Turkey Tail, was historically used in Chinese medicine traditions. Scientists have found that it has high antioxidant properties.
In addition to powders, we are proud to offer two different mushroom extracts which have their own unique serving recommendations and properties.
Our Chaga mushroom products are also available as a mushroom extract liquid. Like the powder and whole pieces, this liquid is extracted from Chaga mushrooms which usually grow on birch trees.
Our final product to introduce is our Reishi mushroom extract; this extract is made from the Reishi mushroom which has been used for thousands of years in traditional societies.
Add Mushrooms To Your Life
While science has quickly been showing that all of these mushroom varieties can have huge benefits for your body, not all of these mushrooms can be eaten or easily digested. That is why we are excited to offer powders and extracts that harness the benefits of these mushrooms in a digestible form. Which mushrooms will you add to your life?
