Medicinal mushrooms seem like small miracles - their therapeutic properties seem to cover almost the full spectrum of human health and well-being. And this is not exaggerated. The majority of antibiotics, several chemo-therapeutic agents, most anti-cholesterol medication (statins) and some anti-HIV medication are based on fungi. Cyclosporin, a drug without which organ transplants would be impossible, is derived from a fungus as well. And so on.
In fact, most mushrooms have only been researched for a small number of therapeutic applications. The chart below gives an indication of the existing research results of the therapeutic properties that were investigated so far.
Please take notice: 'immune balancing' covers a lot of health problems, including many allergies and auto-immune related diseases. These have not been listed separately. This overview is also not complete - we will update it and refine it when more data becomes available.
Be aware of the fact that if a property is left blank for a particular mushroom this only means that this property so far has not been investigated in depth.
These results have all been achieved with extracted mushroom products(extraction using e.g. hot water, ethanol, methanol, fermentation or combinations of these) - they are not applicable to biomass or un-extracted, dried and powdered mushroom products or tinctures.Check our FAQ for the reason why.

Only for Australia, Russia, Malaysia, Israel, Indonesia, all South- and Central-American countries and some countries from Eastern Europe we insist that our customers choose registered shipping (which includes tracking) on the checkout page.

As said, for Australia and a few other countries this is mandatory. We do not accept orders from these countries unless the order includes 'registered shipping'.

First, very important: our affiliate program is NOT a MLM-like scheme. You cannot make money by recruiting other affiliates, nor is it a way to purchase our products with a discount. The main point is to help advertise and sell our products. If a sale is made thanks to you your commission is 25% of that sale. Last year we paid close to a six-figure amount in commissions, so it can be very worthwhile. There are many people out there that can really benefit from our products but don't know we exist. Help to change that!
Right now we do not accept new affiliates - the program has reached its maximum capacity. We will be able to accept new affiliates at the end of 2015/early 2016.
