Thanks to avid mushroom enthusiasts, researchers, and scientists there are now a plethora of products available for consumption. The medicinal properties of mushrooms can be found in tincture, capsule, and powder form depending on a person's preference. But which form of these magnificent mushroom creations is the optimal choice? Let’s explore the process of a mushroom extract tincture and why it is considered the best option for delivery.
The Science Behind A Mushroom Extract Tincture
Why is a mushroom extract tincture the optimal choice for our body? From a scientific standpoint, an extract is a preparation containing the active ingredient of a substance in concentrated form. Also known as the extraction of a raw material, often by using a solvent such as alcohol (ethanol) or water. The solvent causes the dis-solvable compounds to be separated from the structural part of the plant or mushroom. Leaving behind a concentrated liquid tincture or powder form for consumption that is absorbable. One of the biggest advantages of extracts is their higher bioavailability, which means the body's ability to absorb nutrients. In the case of fungi, the extraction process breaks down chitin- which is the indigestible cell wall of mushrooms that contain the main active ingredients we desire for optimal health. Hot-water extraction is used to draw out polysaccharides like beta-glucans, glycoproteins, and other high-molecular weight compounds from mushrooms. Alcohol (ethanol) is then used for dual extraction to provide terpenes, inositols, triterpenoids, sterols, ergosterols, and flavonoids from the mushrooms. For this reason alone, a mushroom extract tincture is the optimal choice and frequently used to manufacture mushroom dietary supplements on the market.

How should you take your extracts?
We recommend taking your tinctures directly under the tongue for the most effective and quickest absorption. Sublingual absorption is more effective because the mushrooms do not have to go through your stomach and digestive system before being absorbed into the bloodstream. The result is faster and greater absorption so you can FEEL the difference. If sublingual absorption is not ideal for you, try putting your 1mL tincture dosage into a shot of water, coffee or tea.
