About

functional mushrooms

Functional mushrooms are a group of mushrooms that are consumed primarily for their health benefits.  These mushrooms contain many different compounds which contribute to their health benefits.  For example, Lion's Mane can support brain activity, Reishi has been used to strengthen immunity, and Cordyceps have improved physical fitness.  However, many of these compounds will not have any benefit if the mushroom is simply eaten.  They need to be correctly extracted for your body to use them.  This typically means a double extraction capturing both the water and alcohol-soluble compounds contained within the mushrooms.  At Mycoday, we only use 100% organic double extracts made from the mushroom's fruiting body.

Lion's Mane

Lion's Mane, or Hericium erinaceus, is recognized for its potential neuroprotective and cognitive-enhancing properties.  The mushroom provides support for brain health, memory, and concentration.  Compounds within Lion's Mane may even stimulate nerve growth factor (NGF) production, contributing to the maintenance and regeneration of nerve cells and supporting overall cognitive function.

Our Lion's Mane extracts are standardized to 30% polysaccharides.

Resihi

Reishi, or Ganoderma lucidum, has a long history of use in traditional medicine and has been called the mushroom of immortality.   Reishi is well known for its immune-modulating effects and stress-reducing properties.  Reishi can promote better sleep and support the body's resilience to various stressors.

Our Reishi extracts are formulated to contain 10% Triterpenes and 20% Polysaccharides.

Cordyceps

Cordyceps are renowned for their adaptogenic properties, aiding the body's ability to manage stress and enhance energy levels.  Professional athletes regularly use them to boost energy and improve recovery.  Compounds found within these mushrooms are said to contribute to improved oxygen utilization and increased ATP production and have potential benefits for respiratory functional endurance. 

Our cordyceps extracts contain 30% polysaccharides, 1% cordycepine, and 0.5% adenosine.  

Chaga

Chaga, or inonotus obliquus, is known for its high antioxidant content, ability to regulate blood sugar levels, and support liver health. 

Our Chaga extracts contain 30% polysaccharides and 3% triterpenes.
