What are Beta glucans?
Beta glucans are the main compound mushroom extract importers use to ascertain the strength of their product.. generally around 5%.
They have always maintained that their mushrooms were much more potent than our whole mushrooms due to the high level of Beta-glucans (and until now, we didn’t have test results to prove otherwise).
Beta glucans are polysaccharides that are found in a range of foods but are very high concentrations in mushrooms.
Why are Beta glucans a big deal?
Beta glucans have been found to boost the immune system and improve skin conditions such as eczema.
Some preliminary research shows they may also play a role in reducing cholesterol and helping the body to kill off cancer cells.
If that wasn’t enough, they are also a prebiotic that improves our gut health by promoting the development of good bacteria in our stomaches.
Beta glucans in whole foods vs Extracts
Other mushroom sellers have always maintained there extracts are superior because they have 5% Beta glucans.
I can now reveal that our 3rd party independent lab tests actually prove that our whole food mushrooms are HIGHER in beta-glucans than the extracts are.
Our mushrooms are over 10% Beta glucans, meaning you get DOUBLE the amount of benefits listed above + all the other nutritional compounds that come from consuming a whole food rather than an extract.
