The benefits contained within these complex mushrooms goes beyond a single extracted compound (see beta-glucans below). That is why we only sell whole mushroom as close to their natural state as possible. Forest Super Food products will always be free of alcohol and isolated compounds.
Mushrooms are nature’s sponges and will absorb any heavy metals and pollutants in the air or water. Thus it is super important to ensure the mushrooms you consume are grown in a pollution-free and heavy metal free environment using clean drinking water.
Recent studies have found that there is a lot more benefit to these mushrooms than just the beta-glucans. This is why it best to always choose a full-spectrum, whole food mushroom product to ensure you get the full range of benefits (not just the beta-glucans).
