Mushrooms or Mycelium?

For thousands of years, Traditional Chinese, Tibetan, Korean, Japanese and other holistic health systems have seen certain species of mushrooms as some of the world’s most profound health builders.

Today, studies are proving them right, showing that mushrooms support immunity and healthy cholesterol levels, protect cellular structure, encourage nerve growth, promote brain function and serve as tonics to virtually every major organ system.

These benefits are due to the nutrients mushrooms contain. The most prominent of these are Beta-(1,3)(1,6) G-glucans, but ergothioneines, antioxidants, ergosterol, anti-inflammatory sterols, lipids, glycosides, chitins, diterpenes and triterpenes are also important.

Real mushrooms are the “fruits” of organisms called basidiomycetes. These organisms have other parts, like mycelia, which are like their “roots.” Just as a grape is different from the vine it grows on, mushrooms differ from mycelia. Because they have different nutritional profiles, their benefits differ, as well.

For many years, most supplements sold as “mushrooms” in the United States have actually been mycelia. This confusion occurred because manufacturers of supplements were not required to disclose the parts of an organism their product contained.

In 2010, regulations changed. By now, most companies do list (in the Supplement Facts Box of the label) whether their product contains mushrooms or mycelia. However, many mycelia products still contain beautiful mushroom pictures on their front panels.

American mycelia grows in plastic bags filled with rice, corn, wheat or rye. As it grows, it becomes part of the grain. Because there is no way to separate it at harvest, it ends up being up to 70% grain.

So, Which is Better?

Real mushrooms contain high levels (20% to 55%) of immune enhancing nutrients called Beta- (1,3) (1,6) D-glucans and less than 2% common starch. Mycelia usually contain less than 7% beta glucans, but 40% to 70% starch. Starch, of course, provides none of the benefits for which mushrooms are prized.

As mentioned above, the benefits that mushrooms confer are due to their nutrients. Mycelia contain far fewer of them. Logic thereby makes mushrooms the clear choice.

The table below shows the results of laboratory analyses that measure levels of beta glucans and starch from samples of several species of real mushrooms and the same species of mycelia. These analyses are striking evidence of the superiority of real mushrooms.

Product Tested % Beta D-Glucans % Starch
Cordyceps: Mushroom Fruiting Body 34.36% 1.65%
Cordyceps: Myceliated Grain 1.50% 64%
Lion’s Mane: Mushroom Fruiting Body 37.4% 1.9%
Lion’s Mane: Myceliated Grain 1.1% 63.5%
Maitake: Mushroom Fruiting Body 32.4% 0.7%
Maitake: Myceliated Grain 6.38% 44.47%
Reishi: Mushroom Fruiting Body 53.20% 0.5%
Reishi: Myceliated Grain 1.06% 45.2%

How Do I Know What I’m Buying?

Most mycelium products now list their ingredients as “mycelium,” “mycelia,” “myceliated rice,” “myceliated grain,” etc. Others may be slightly less straightforward, saying they contain “mycelium and fruiting bodies,” “full spectrum” or “full life cycle.” All of these indicate that at least most of a product is mycelia grown on grain.

What you want to see is “100% mushroom extract” or “100% mushroom fruiting body extract.” If a company has labeled its product honestly, this will assure that you have a real mushroom product and that its nutrients are as bioavailable as possible. Simple mushroom powders (not extracts) contain all the nutrients found in extracts, but are less bioavailable because the mushroom cell wall is not broken down.

If you want to be completely certain about what a “mushroom” supplement contains, you can conduct this simple test at home:

  1. Combine one gram of product (2 emptied capsules of 500 mg each or one half teaspoon of powder) with three tablespoons of water.
  2. Mix thoroughly to dissolve the powder as completely as possible.
  3. Add 10 drops of standard iodine tincture (available at nearly any pharmacy).
Results: If a product is mycelium grain, your solution will turn dark purplish or black. Real mushroom powder will retain its original color or darken only very slightly.

MyPure™ Mushrooms

MyPure™ Mushrooms, from Pure Essence, are Non GMO, 100% Certified Organic Whole Mushroom Fruiting Body Extracts, and nothing else. They contain guaranteed levels of beta glucans and are rich in other factors that only whole mushrooms provide. Every lot is lab tested for identity, purity, potency, heavy metals and pesticides.

They are 100% compliant with California’s Proposition 65.

MyPure™ Mushrooms are made in cGMP compliant facilities and meet even the most exacting regulatory standards. They contain no fillers, binders, flavorings, colorings or common allergens of any kind. They are 100% pure mushroom extracts. Nothing more, nothing less.

Our original products use only 1:1 hot water extracts. These provide maximum Beta- (1,3) (1,6) -D-glucan content. Our 4X formulas combine 1:1 hot water extracts with stronger extracts (4:1, 8:1, 10:1, depending on the mushroom species).

These stronger extracts also provide high levels of Beta-glucans but offer richer concentrations of ganoderic acids, cordycepin, diterpenes and other important nutrients.

The common recommendation for mushrooms is 500 to 5000 mg per day. The low end is for those who use mushrooms to maintain general wellbeing. If this is you, our original MyPure™ Mushroom formulas are perfect for you. (Note: Because real mushrooms are richer in the vital nutrients you want from mushrooms, one capsule of MyPure™ Mushrooms can replace from two to six capsules of mycelial products).

The higher end of the usage range is for those who want maximum mushroom benefits. If you belong to this group, we suggest our MyPure™ 4X products. Each capsule of these formulas provides the equivalent of 2250 to 2400 mg of mushroom nutrition. (Note: Each capsule of our 4X formulas provides the equivalent of up to 8 to 24 mycelium capsules.)

No matter which formula you choose, you can be sure you’re getting the cleanest, purest real mushroom nutrition available anywhere.

MyPure™ Maitake

MyPure™ Maitake

Maitake (Grifola frondoras) is truly a wondrous mushroom. Maitake means “dancing mushroom,” and was adopted as the mushroom’s folk name because people are said to have danced in joy over the delightful sense of wellbeing it brought into their lives.

It contains rich levels of Beta-D-glucans as well as specific polysaccharide factors known as Fraction-D, etc.

Research is showing that it may support healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels as well as immune function. Like Reishi and Cordyceps, it is classified as an adaptogen.

Each capsule of MyPure™ Maitake provides 500 mg of our 1:1, 100% Non GMO, Certified Organic Maitake Mushrooms. The mushrooms are hot water extracted to break down mushroom cell walls, thus maximizing nutrient bioavailability.

MyPure™ Maitake powder is a superb Maitake supplement.

MyPure™ Cordyceps

MyPure™ Cordyceps

For centuries, Cordyceps was available only to the royal families of Asia. Wild crafted from the most remote parts of the Himalayan Mountains, it is so rare that it sold for up to $35,000 per pound. Cordyceps is used to enhance energy, vigor, stamina and libido.

Cordyceps is classified in herbal terminology as an adaptogen, meaning that it helps you deal with stress, tension and fatigue. Herbalists believe that its nutrients promote the body’s natural balance and supports healthy liver function, respiration and inflammatory processes. It is for these reasons that it is thought to promote longevity.

The Cordyceps that was wild crafted in the ancient past was the species, “Cordyceps sinensis.” Because its rarity has raised concerns of its becoming endangered, it almost never finds its way into the United States. Today, some companies claim to have spores of the original sinensis species, but the products they make from it are mycelium.

In recent years, another species, called Cordyceps militaris has taken center stage. The nutritional profiles of Cordyceps militaris to Cordyceps sinensis are extremely similar. Militaris mushrooms are rich in both Beta-D-glucans and cordycepin, a factor thought to be responsible for many of Cordyceps’ special benefits.

Each capsule of MyPure™ Cordyceps provides 500 mg of our 1:1, 100% Non GMO, and Certified Organic Cordyceps militaris mushroom powder extract. The mushrooms are hot water extracted to break down the cell walls, thus maximizing nutrient bioavailability. We know of no finer Cordyceps product.

MyPure™ Cordyceps
MyPure™ Cordyceps 4X

MyPure™ Cordyceps 4X

MyPure™ Cordyceps 4X provides 300 mg of our 1:1 extract and 200 mg of our 10:1 extract of Cordyceps militaris mushrooms. Both extracts are Non GMO, 100% Certified Organic Mushroom Extract Powders that are hot water treated to maximize nutrient bioavailability.

The 1:1 powder provides rich levels of beta glucans while the 10:1 portion maximizes Cordycepin, Adenosine and other valued nutrients.

One capsule of “4X” provides the equivalent of 2300 total milligrams of raw Cordyceps militaris powder, or about 4 and a half time more than the 500 mg present in a capsule of our original, MyPure™ Cordyceps product.

MyPure™ Lion’s Mane

MyPure™ Lion's Mane

Lion’s Mane (Herecium erinaceus) is an extraordinary mushroom. It supports stomach and liver function, thereby serving as a digestive aid. It contains unique compounds called “diterpenes” that have a positive impact on mood and support brain health and memory.

Lion’s Mane supports immune function and provides nutrients that have antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-aging properties. Many people say that it helps them overcome fatigue. It may also support healthy cardiovascular function. In recent years, Lion’s Mane has become one the world’s most popular natural health supplements.

Each capsule of MyPure™ Lion’s Mane provides 500 mg of our 1:1, 100% Non GMO, Certified Organic Royal Lion’s Mane Mushrooms. The mushrooms are hot water extracted to break down mushroom cell walls, thus maximizing nutrient bioavailability. MyPure™ Lion’s Mane powder is in a class by itself.

MyPure™ Lion’s Mane
MyPure™ Lion's Mane 4X

MyPure™ Lion's Mane 4X

MyPure™ Lion’s Mane 4X provides 250 mg of our 1:1 extract powder and 250 mg of our 8:1 extract of 100% Non GMO, Certified Organic Lion’s Mane mushrooms. Both are hot water treated to rupture the mushroom cell wall to maximize the bioavailability of the mushrooms’ nutrients.

The 8:1 extract removes much of the fibrous content of the mushroom so that specific nutrients - like the diterpenes - are more concentrated.

Designed to deliver maximum Lion’s Mane nutrition, each capsule provides the equivalent of 2250 total milligrams, or about 4 and a half times more than the 500 mg in a capsule of our original, MyPure™ Lion’s Mane product.

MyPure™ Reishi

MyPure™ Reishi

Reishi (ganoderum lucidum) is often called the “King of Mushrooms.” It is considered an adaptogen, meaning that it helps the body cope with stress, tension and fatigue, and to promote natural body balance. Its main immune enhancing compounds are Beta-D-glucans and ganoderic acids. These acids may help inhibit the release of histamine and support liver function and serve as antioxidants.

Reishi has been long been used to help calm the mind, ease tension, sharpen concentration and focus, build willpower, etc. Traditional Chinese Medicine sees it as one of the few foods/herbs that impart wisdom, and many people report that it promotes a sense of peaceful wellbeing. Royal Red Reishi and Purple Reishi are considered top of the line.

Each capsule of MyPure™ Reishi provides 500 mg of our 1:1, 100% Non GMO, Certified Organic Royal Red Reishi Mushrooms. The mushrooms are hot water extracted to break down the cell walls, thus maximizing nutrient bioavailability. You simply can’t find a better Reishi product.

MyPure™ Reishi
MyPure™ Reishi 4X

MyPure™ Reishi 4X

MyPure™ Reishi 4X provides 250 mg of our regular, 1:1 powder and 250 mg of our 8:1 extract of our 100% Non GMO, Certified Organic Royal Red Reishi mushrooms. Both are steam treated to maximize nutrient bioavailability.

The 1:1 powder provides rich levels of beta glucans while the 8:1 portion maximizes ganoderic acids and other valuable compounds.

Each capsule provides the equivalent of 2250 total milligrams of raw Reishi powder, or four and a half times more than the 500 mg present in a capsule of our original, MyPure™ Reishi product.

MyPure™ MYcoMune

MyPure™ MYcoMune

MyPure™ MycoMune is an exquisite blend of the world’s most power packed mushrooms blended together to form a wondrously comprehensive mushroom supplement. Instead of using small amounts of many mushrooms, we focus on those that provide the most powerful overall nutritional package.

These are Reishi, Cordyceps, Lion’s Mane, Maitake and Shiitake. We add a small amount of wild crafted Chaga because it contains a specific nutrient called betulinic acid that is not present in most others. But, that’s it. Just these six wondrous mushrooms and nothing else.

Each capsule of MyPure™ MycoMune provides 500 mg of the six mushrooms listed above. The mushrooms are hot water extracted to break down the cell walls and maximize nutrient bioavailability. MyPure™ MycoMune is the most powerful combination mushroom product available anywhere.
