These Fungi Friends typically grow wild on trees, logs and stumps all around the world from Asia to Russia, so very clean and very ethical to source. For thousands of years, mushrooms have been used in traditional medicines to treat and support health in general, from infections to the immune system, as well as all round health…… the health benefits really are endless!

How do I take medicinal mushrooms?
Most mushrooms come in powder form or capsule. Most research will show powders are better mixed with hot/warm water because the absorption is better, in turn the health benefits are better.
All of the mushrooms go well in coffee or hot chocolate. You can add plant milks to them if you wish or adding a spoon to food like a sauce can add a great earthy flavour as well as getting your daily goodness.
