LEARN ABOUT MUSHROOMS
At Everyday Dose we are committed to providing the highest quality mushroom products that are:
100% Organic and ONLY Fruiting Body Extracts
Lab tested for: beta-glucans, heavy metals, allergens and mycotoxins
No added starch, mycelium, or grain (i.e. mycelial biomass)
ALWAYS READ THE LABEL
WATCH OUT for other brands that are in fact not made from mushrooms. Mycellium on oat or rice is commonly sold as “mushroom” when it often contains very little mushrooms, if any. LOOK --> Does the label say "mycelial biomass," "mycelium," or "full spectrum"? This essentially equates to the dirt these were grown on and that you would be consuming rice or grain. In most cases these companies use oats - because it's cheap. Myceliated grain has been shown to be primarily grain and contain very little of the active compounds that make mushrooms beneficial. While there is mycelium research, it is almost always based on pure mycelium made through liquid fermentation which does not contain any grain in the final ingredient.
TL;DR: RICE/GRAIN ARE JUNK FOOD FOR MUSHROOMS
THE GOOD STUFF AND HOW THE MAGIC HAPPENS
HOT WATER EXTRACTION
Hot water extraction is the traditional method of processing medicinal mushrooms. That is because one of the most heavily studied and important compounds in mushrooms is water soluble. This compound is beta-d glucan, a very special type of polysaccharide that has immunomodulating properties.
Some compounds such as triterpenes and sterols- are not soluble in water. In order to make them more bioavailable, an alcohol extraction should be performed.The extraction process for Everyday Dose mushrooms Is a multi-step water and alcohol extraction process only using the fruiting body to ensure the integrity and bioavailability of the main bioactives.
THE PRESENCE OF BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS
Are potent immunomodulators, with effects on both innate and adaptive immunity. Beta-glucans act on a diversity of immune related receptors, in particular dectin-1 and CR3, and can trigger a wide spectrum of positive immune boosting responses. (1) Both our chaga and Lion's Mane have a high beta-glucan rate.

Studies have shown that antimicrobial action is due to betulin and lupeol, two types of triterpenes, as well as mycosterols, a kind of sterol found in mushrooms. Chaga extracts have been shown to exhibit activity against several common types of viruses in in vitro studies. In one study, the water-based extract of chaga exhibited antiviral activity against the hepatitis C virus (2), while another study reported 100 percent inhibition of the external surface of fungus against two strains of the human influenza virus (A and B).

Another study found that betulinic acid shows potent anti-cancer activity through activation of the mitochondrial pathway of apoptosis in cancer cells. Betulinic acid may also be used in combination protocols to enhance its antitumor activity, for example with chemo- or radiotherapy or with the death receptor ligand TRAIL. Because of its relative selective cytotoxicity against malignant compared to normal cells, betulinic acid is a promising new experimental anticancer agents for the treatment of human cancers.
