Why Having Mixed Medicinal Mushroom Extracts?
Having organic mixed mushroom extracts in powder form is a great way to supplement your daily diet with nutrients and important bio-active components. Mushrooms are medicinal purely because over millions of years they have developed compounds to protect themselves in the natural environment. The beneficial compounds are “locked” within the cellular walls of the mushrooms. The only way for us to get these actives is to perform some sort of extraction. Why? Well, the answer is fairly simple – mushroom cellular walls are mainly made of chitin , one of Earth’s strongest materials Hence are extremely rigid. People found over the millennia that when cooking mushrooms, certain health properties were occurring. Traditional Chinese medicine doctors have recorded a large number of findings regarding the benefits of mushrooms.
Mixed vs Single extract-which is best?
Sometimes people ask whether a mix of medicinal mushroom extracts or single medicinal mushroom extract works best. The truth is that there is no answer to such question. It is what work best for you, this is the bottom line. Usually medicinal mushrooms have similarities in terms of offering nutrients and health benefits.

They all have proven immune-modulating properties, cholesterol-balancing effect, act as antioxidants and are anti-tumor.
