Quality Control of Our Mushroom Extracts

Tired of looking through an ingredient list thinking you've finally found a high-quality product, only to find out you've been duped? We are too. That's why we believe in being radically transparent about our ingredients.

So, you decided to make the switch from regular beef to grass-fed beef only to find out that the last 6 months of the cow's life it was fed grain and corn. Duped. Then, after hearing about all of the benefits of medicinal mushroom extracts like Chaga and Lion's Mane, you come to find out that the extracts contain up to 70% starch or more. Duped. Again. Enough's enough.

Here's a look at the processing, testing, and potency of the mushroom extracts in our signature mushroom blend:

PROCESSING

  1. Mushrooms are processed in GMP certified factories that only process mushrooms.
  2. All water used in cleaning and processing is purified with an ultrafiltration system.
  3. Every step of the extraction process is monitored closely to ensure best practices and standards are met.
  4. The extract products are dried and packed in sterile environments

TESTING

Our suppliers hire qualified third-party labs to test each extract for the following:

  1. Complete microbial testing for bacteria, yeast, and mold.
  2. Heavy metals analysis.
  3. Pesticide testing that exceeds USP standards.
  4. Beta-glucan testing to ensure medicinal compounds.
  5. Ergosterol testing to ensure fungal purity.
  6. Alpha-glucan testing to guard against adulterants and carriers.
  7. Reishi extracts are analyzed for triterpenoids. Cordyceps is analyzed for cordycepin.
  8. Final organoleptic evaluation.

Every time we receive our extracts from our suppliers, we're given a certification of analysis that includes a breakdown of the results above.
