Real Mushrooms - 5 Defenders
At Real Mushrooms we pride ourselves on knowing that our mushroom products are of the highest quality. Our 5 Defenders is made from 100%, certified organic, reishi mushroom, chaga mushroom, maitake mushroom, shiitake mushroom and turkey tail mushroom. They are hot water extracted to pull out the beta-glucans. In the case of Reishi and Chaga, they are also extracted with alcohol to obtain the non-water soluble triterpenes. This is commonly called dual extraction.

Guaranteed Potency - Scientifically Verified
We test specifically for beta-glucans and triterpenes as these are the most well researched, beneficial compounds in mushrooms. We also test for starch which is used to show that our products contain no fillers of any kind, Just 100% pure mushrooms. If other brands only list polysaccharide numbers, make sure to ask them for beta-glucan and starch numbers. This helps to determines product quality as there is a vast difference in quality between brands.
There is a very big difference in the quality of mushroom products. Beware non-extracted powders and products made from mycelium. These products are much less potent than extracted fruiting bodies. In the case of mycelium products, much of the product is actually starch so you not only have less potency but end up wasting your money on grain. Read the supplements panel on products very carefully. All our our products are made from 100% organic fruiting bodies.
