How are we different?

Potent medicinal mushrooms have been grown in China for hundreds of years, and to this day the most nutrient-rich mushrooms come from Chinese cultivars. For over 2,000 years, the traditions of Chinese medicine have been applied to the cultivation of these mushrooms for a host of medicinal uses. Mushroom cultivation in China has furthermore been so refined that farmed variants are in no way inferior to their wild-grown counterparts. Our maitake mushrooms are sourced directly from the globally-recognised mushroom-growing region of Gutian County in Fujian. Our farming partner is organically certified according to EU standards and places a high value on natural, traditional cultivation methods. The mushrooms are selectively harvested by hand between July and October for maximum nutritional value.

Mushrooms are composed of the fruiting body, which typically appears above ground, and the mycelium underneath. The most important nutrients are concentrated in the fruiting body. Products derived from the mycelium are frequently much cheaper because mycelia are cultivated faster, cheaper, and easier. Yet these products hardly contain any of the potent compounds of the mushroom. Our mushroom powders and extracts are exclusively made from the entire fruiting body of the mushroom (including the stem) and contain the full nutritional richness that the mushrooms have to offer.

In contrast to extracts, which can lose some of their nutritional value during processing, powders contain the full spectrum of nutrients and enzymes for a particularly strong adaptogenic effect. To ensure that these nutrients are optimally bioavailable, our powder is gently ground according to the "shell-broken" method to a size of less than 0.1mm. This milling process breaks open the difficult-to-digest cells of the mushroom and makes their contents directly bioavailable.

Maitake (Grifola frondosa, hen-of-the-woods)

The word maitake is of Japanese origin and means "dancing mushroom". According to the legend behind this name, anyone who finds this mushroom in the wild will break into dance because it is so valuable and rare.

Maitake mushrooms are prized for their earthy flavour and have been considered a delicacy in Chinese and Japanese cuisine for millennia. This mushroom can be found at the base of deciduous trees either on the trunk or roots. While maitake is mostly commonly found on oak, it also grows on linden, chestnut, and birch trees.

Ancient texts indicate that maitake has been used as a medicinal mushroom in traditional Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years. Research into the mushroom's compounds suggests that its high concentration of polysaccharides such as beta-glucans, are at the root of its alleged health benefits.

Cultivation & Processing

Our medicinal mushrooms are sourced from the renowned mushroom-growing region of Gutian County (600-700m above sea level), in Fujian, China. The cultivation of mushrooms is an age-old tradition in the region, as is reflected by the unparalleled quality of these mushrooms. The fertile land, sophisticated substrates, as well as the climate, all contribute to a uniquely nutritious end product. Moreover, these pristine lands are protected by dense mountain forests, thus providing an ideal environment for the mushrooms to thrive. Our untreated mushrooms are certified organically grown according to EU standards. They are grown to full maturity and hand-picked at the peak of their vitality, between July and October.

The mushrooms retain their raw quality as a result of gentle drying at temperatures below 40°C. This process preserves the delicate enzymes and potent vital substances of the mushrooms. To ensure that these valuable nutrients are bioavailable, the dried mushrooms are then gently milled. Thanks to our use of the "shell-broken" method, the powder attains a fineness of less than 0.125mm, which ensures that the compounds within the cells as well as within the chitin skeleton of the mushroom are optimally available for absorption. The powder contains the full richness of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and trace elements of the whole fruiting body of the mushroom.
