Did you want a Starbucks mushroom coffee to taste like your regular? Do you need a mushroom chai latte to start your day? Don't disrupt your morning coffee routine with gimmicky coffee replacements. Add pure mushroom extract directly to your coffee to "level up" any beverage. Or simply place it under your tongue as a tincture. Carry this around in your purse or bag to enjoy the benefits of mushrooms anywhere with any flavored beverage.
Turkey Tail is a powerful mushroom that has purportedly been used for its healing properties all around the world. The popular belief is that these mushrooms may aid in regulating immune systems and maintaining proper prostate, hormones, liver, and kidney health. Research tends to suggest the need for human studies or clinical trials regarding the benefits to immune modulation, digestive system, circulation, lymph system, immune system, liver function and cellular system, including stimulating cells to combat intercellular viral infections.*
Chaga is found almost exclusively growing on wild birch trees throughout the Northern hemisphere. Animal studies and in vitro studies have suggested the need for human research or clinical trials for cognitive enhancement and pro-apoptotic effects (apoptosis means cell death).*
Red Reishi is known in many Asian cultures as “The Elixir Of Life” or “Mushroom of Immortality” and is speculated to be good for supporting healthy immune functions, inflammation, liver & kidneys, and overall health. Studies have suggested the need for human research or clinical trials regarding the protection of brain cells from inflammation and reduction of the oxidative impact of destructive proteins in the brain. *
Popular serving size for mushroom tinctures is 1 dropper held under the tongue for 60 seconds or added to your coffee.

Extraction unlocks the mushrooms! We use triple extraction to unlock maximum bioavailability. Fungi cell walls are made of chitin, a modified form of cellulose, which makes unlocking these beneficial molecules difficult in the raw or cooked form (think about ruminants needing to chew their cud). They form a tensile and robust core scaffold to which a variety of proteins and superficial components with fibrous and gel-like carbohydrates form polymers, making a strong and flexible cell wall. The cell wall is a fantastic feature for the fungi in its natural state but not very good for humans trying to unlock their potential.
Triple extraction process:
- Mushrooms are fermented, to make the polysaccharides, triterpenoids, and alkaloids more accessible.
- Next, we perform a hot water extraction, because polysaccharides are water soluble.
- Finally, 90 days in alcohol draws the nonpolar triterpenoids out.
- It takes around 100 days to make a tincture!
- No gluten, no GMO’s, no pesticides or herbicides
- Mushrooms are certified wild crafted and/or organic!
Ingredients: USP Grade Organic Cane Alcohol (no gluten), Turkey Tail, Red Reishi, Chaga, Organic Myceliated Brown Rice (which feed the mushroom mycelium).
