The Seven Species of Mushroom 7
REISHI (Ganoderma lucidum):
Considered a powerful herb, reishi mushrooms have a history dating back over 4,000 years, with written documentation of their benefits dating as far back as the Han Dynasty (206B.C – 8 A.D.). Also known as the lingzhi mushroom in Chinese, representing a combination of spiritual potency and longevity with the words “ling” and “zhi,” this powerful mushroom is a large, dark mushroom with a glossy exterior and woody texture. While rare in the wild, this mushroom has been commercially cultivated and scientifically researched since the 1960s for its potential benefits towards general wellness.
HIMEMATSUTAKE 'BRAZILIAN AGARICUS' (Agaricus blazei):
The origin of the brazilian agaricus mushroom species stems from the mountain village of Piedade, about 60 miles north of São Paulo, Brazil. Historically, this species of mushroom was first referenced medicinally as far back as the Byzantine empire, illustrating that this potent mushroom has a long tradition of medicinal use. Gaining popularity in the 1970’s, the brazilian agaricus mushroom remains under intense study by major scientific journals for its promising benefits.
MAITAKE (Grifola frondosa):
Native to the mountain forests of Northeastern Japan, maitake mushrooms are also known as phantom mushrooms because of their rare presence in the wild. This potent mushroom has been used traditionally for centuries as a medicinal mushroom prior to modern cultivation techniques which make this rare mushroom readily available. In ancient times, the maitake mushroom was a treasured food and healing source. Today, the maitake mushroom is cultivated for its high levels of protein-bound beta-glucan polysaccharides, which are extracted for their potent qualities.
LION'S MANE (Hericium erinaceus):
With a long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine, lion’s mane, also known by the Latin name Hericium erinaceus, is an edible and medicinal mushroom belonging to the tooth fungus group. Originating in North America, Europe, and Asia, this mushroom is identified by its long spines and is known to contain high amounts of antioxidants, beta-glucan and polysaccharides that are extracted from the mushroom for their medicinal properties.
SHIITAKE (Lentinula edodes):
The earliest written record of cultivation of the shiitake mushroom dates back to 1209 during the Southern Song dynasty in China. Native to various parts of East Asia, the Japanese began cultivating this mushroom species in 1930 by cutting shii trees with axes and placing logs by trees that were already growing shiitake. Now widely cultivated all over the world, shiitake mushrooms now contribute about 25% of total yearly mushroom production. Rich in selenium, iron, fiber, protein and vitamin C, these mushrooms are widely hailed for their properties aiding in general wellness.
FU LING (Wolfiporia cocos):
Considered an ancient Chinese herb, the fu ling mushrooms, also known as poria mushrooms, have been used medicinally for about 2,000 years. These mushrooms, which grow on the roots of pine trees in China, are also known as Indian bread or China root. The filaments of fu ling mushrooms- where all the nutrients are stored- are harvested for their medicinal qualities and ground into powder for utilization in many natural remedies.
TURKEY TAIL (Coriolus versicolor):
True to its Latin name Trametes versicolor, the turkey tail mushroom comes in many colors and various bandings which, paired with its unique spoon-like shape, makes for a mesmerizing mushroom that is still considered potent and powerful in the scope of its potential uses. Commonly found on the bases of large trees and decomposing wood, this particular species is rich in polysaccharides and beta-glucans, making this species one that is widely medically researched and highly esteemed in relation to its long history in Chinese medicine.
The Importance of Mycelial Biomass
Mycelium is the vegetative part of a mushroom, consisting of a mass of branching, thread-like hyphae, which act as the main mode of vegetative growth. The mycelium provides extracellular compounds and metabolites that function to promote the longevity and vitality of the living mushroom. As mushrooms spend more than 90% of their life cycle in this mycelial stage, Nature's Lab Mushroom 7 focuses on this mycelial biomass to get the most out of the mushrooms cultivated for this supplement.
Our Cultivation Technique
Forest mushrooms have been cultivated for over thousands of years. The traditional method is to drill a hole in a log, fill it with mushroom mycelium, seal the hole and wait. Nature's Lab Mushroom 7 uses a more modern technique that is much faster yet still organic and natural.Grown on organic brown rice or organic sorghum in the United States
, the mushroom mycelium is packed into bottles and then sterilized in a giant autoclave, which is used specifically for the occurrence of chemical reactions and other processes at high pressures and temperatures.
After the sterilization process, a starter culture is then added, and the bottles are then stored in just the right condition to thrive. This process ensures that Nature’s Lab Mushroom 7 contains no harmful pesticides or herbicides while still providing maximum nutrients and benefits.
