Mushroom powder of the whole mushroom
Best quality for your well-being: Mushroom powder of the whole mushroom
We have dedicated ourselves completely to the power of nature and for us this also includes the philosophy of the whole-materiality. Therefore we offer you mushroom powder of the whole mushroom, which contains all the valuable ingredients of the mushroom.
Our sister company, MykoVital H. GmbH, in Limeshain (Germany) cultivates organic mushrooms naturally on ecologically controlled organic substrate (control number: DE-ÖKO-006): Our organic mushrooms are grown on a special organic substrate consisting of untreated wood and other valuable organic ingredients. All substrates contain only gluten- and lactose-free organic ingredients, clear sterile water and purified air. Of course, no pesticides or similar are used. The exact mixture of our organic mushroom substrate is unique and was developed in decades of work.
The long way from the spore to the ripe mushroom
First, the BIO substrate is carefully sterilized to ensure that no bacteria or other fungal spores are present. It is then spiked with the respective fungal spawn. It usually takes several weeks or months until the first small fungal heads appear. During the long ripening period, the organic substrate is completely covered with fungal mycelium. We cultivate our organic mushrooms in optimally air-conditioned halls under controlled conditions. A constant optimum temperature and humidity ensure the best ripening conditions for the mushrooms. As soon as the fruiting bodies are fully grown on the substrate, they are harvested by hand.
From ripe mushrooms to mushroom powder of the best quality
The further processing of the organic mushrooms, which we grow exclusively for the production of mushroom powder, takes place immediately after the harvest of the ripe mushroom. This is very important because mushrooms can lose valuable ingredients during storage. The first step is careful drying at temperatures of maximum 35 degrees Celsius. This process preserves all heat-unstable ingredients. Afterwards the dried organic mushrooms are gently ground into fine powder.
We do not add any dyes, binding agents, flow agents or other additives during processing, so that you get 100% pure organic mushroom powder from the whole mushroom. The finished organic mushroom powder is then filled into cellulose capsules. Either pure with 100% powder of one mushroom or for our mushroom powder mixtures with the powder of two to a maximum of three mushrooms. Finally, the capsules are filled into jars.
Thus you profit from mushroom powder which contains a maximum of ingredients, especially the valuable biovital substances.
Thousands of ingredients
Our whole mushroom powder contains thousands of ingredients. These include glycoproteins (the most natural and effective form of polysaccharides), triterpenes, adenosines, vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids and especially the very important enzymes and many other ingredients. They all have an influence on the human organism. But the fantastic thing is that they support each other in their effect. This means that the individual valuable ingredients of the whole mushrooms work as a compound. On the one hand they stimulate certain metabolic reactions in the organism, on the other hand they inhibit certain processes. This is a sensible and balanced process that enables us to make full use of nature's intelligence for our well-being.
Why no extracts...
Why can't extracts detoxify? Our uncontaminated organic mushrooms act as a catalyst and remove toxins from the body. During detoxification, the enzymes that are abundantly contained in the mushroom powder from the whole mushroom are particularly important. Extracts, on the other hand, lack enzymes, because the enzymes are destroyed at a temperature of 40 degrees Celsius and above, which is necessary for hot water extraction. Therefore, extracts can no longer absorb harmful substances and excrete them naturally. In addition, all vitamins that are not heat-resistant, such as vitamin B1, and B12 and vitamin C, are also lost during hot water extraction. Extracts do not contain triterpenes. The precious triterpenes are among the most effective ingredients of the mushrooms. They are found exclusively in the fruiting body, mainly in the lamellae and spores of the mature mushroom cap. The spectrum of action of triterpenes is very broad. The triterpenes include molecules such as steroids, vitamin D and bile acids. In extracts the triterpenes are completely absent. Glycoproteins are destroyed during extraction. Polysaccharides (ß-glucans) belong to the family of long-chain carbohydrates, which are composed of many individual sugars. The concentration of the polysaccharides (multiple sugars) in the fungi depends on the stage of development of the fruiting body. Their activity increases with the development and growth of the fruiting body. The fruiting body contains a higher total amount and a higher number of different polysaccharides than the mycelium. Glycoproteins are high molecular and complex molecules of ß-glucans (polysaccharides) and protein. The effect of the glycoprotein is higher than the effect of ß-glucans alone. During extraction, the glycoproteins are destroyed and polysaccharides remain. Their size is reduced by heating and thus the range and strength of the effect is proportionally reduced. You will receive from us mushroom powder from the whole mushroom, which contains a maximum of ingredients such as enzymes, vitamins, triterpenes and glycoproteins.
