How Can I Try Medicinal Mushrooms?

Raw Mushrooms

Raw mushrooms are a fine place to start. You can adjust your diet to include whichever mushrooms have the benefits you're looking for, and elevate your entire natural support. 

These just can be very time consuming. You get the raw mushrooms from the store, cook them or prepare them for a tea/coffee blend, mix the ingredients, and add a ton of extra prep work to your already busy day.

Mushroom Powders

Mushroom powders are like raw mushrooms made simple. They pack extract into low calorie, quick mushroom support that can be worked into virtually any diet or routine. After some quick prep work, they're easy to take on the go, and can offer a ton of the same nutrients as raw mushrooms.

The thing is, mushroom powders can get messy. They take a bit of extra time to get ready, need something to blend up with, and aren't always the best tasting. In fact, some even start to include caffeine and a ton of added sugars to make it even taste decent. Luckily, there's a much easier path to mushroom-powered wellness today.

Mushroom Gummies

Mushroom gummies are the perfect medium between eating raw mushrooms and supplements. They grab the extract of each mushroom and pack them into compact, fruity, delicious supplements. As each blend is cultivated to suit different needs, you still get the same values out of the mushrooms without losing-out on those daily values you're looking for.

In fact, there's actually a few areas these mushroom gummies go above and beyond your average everyday mushroom supplements.
