Medicinal Compounds: Healthy, Happy, Holistic

Medicinal mushroom compounds must be detailed and standardized. The objective is quantification of medicinal markers that register as scientifically significant and preservation of the holistic spectrum.

Medicinal mushroom compounds are abundant, diverse and synergistic. The complete list of medicinal compounds is unknown, even to science. Only the mushrooms know. And If we listen, they will tell us. So say the curanderas of the world.

Medicinals:  ß-Glucans

» The source and amount of ß-glucans must be Identified On Label.
ß-glucans (beta-glucans) are β-D-glucose polysaccharides units which make up the structure of cellulose. Identified as prime bioactive polysaccharides, β-glucans have extensive positive research results. High levels of fungal beta-glucans are a benchmark of quality. Learn more >

 

Medicinals: Triterpenes

» The source and amount of Triterpenes must be Identified On Label.
Triterpenes are lipids and secondary metabolites and only produced by certain species. Medicinal mushrooms triterpenes offer rich chemistry and pharmacology. Learn more >

 

Medicinals: Vitamin D

» The source, type and amount of Vitamin D must be Identified On Label.
Vitamin D2 is the vegan Vitamin D and as such is an important medicinal choice for many people. Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) content in medicinal mushrooms is influenced by ergosterol and exposure to ultraviolet.

 

Medicinals: Holistic Extraction

» Extraction methods must be Identified On Label.
Extraction methods to concentrate mushrooms for medicinal dosages must deliver high-value holistic extracts. Science-based medicinal values and preservation of mushroom integrity are critical.

 

Medicinals: Single-Species

» The single-species mushroom must be Identified On Label.
Products are exclusively single-species. Multi-species treatments are complex and diagnosis-dependent: Any combination of medicinal mushrooms must be prescribed by a health professional only.

» Multi-species blending by supplier is not approved under Pure Mushroom Initiative Standards.

 

Medicinals: Dosage

» The dosage must be clearly Identified On Label.
Products are exclusively single-species. Multi-species treatments are complex and diagnosis-dependent: Any combination of medicinal mushrooms must be prescribed by a health professional.
