Our Mushrooms

Relied upon for centuries in traditional Asian medicine, functional mushrooms, also called adaptogenic mushrooms, have become increasingly popular in the West. Initially embraced by a small group of wellness-focused consumers and integrative health practitioners, functional mushrooms were soon adopted by elite western athletes looking for a competitive edge.

Mainstream awareness has steadily grown, as evidenced by major features in both healthy lifestyle and general media, significant growth in functional mushroom supplement sales, and the integration of functional mushrooms into popular foods and beverages, including chips, jerky, soup, coffee and tea. The pandemic – and increased desire for immune support – has driven consumer interest in functional mushrooms to an unprecedented level.
