Across the Western hemisphere, mushrooms, yeasts and molds still represent a largely unexplored territory. In various Eastern cultures, for example in traditional approaches to health in China and Ayurveda over 5,000 years old, mushrooms have been recognized and used for many aspects. In the West, too, the conviction is growing that the more than 300 known types of mushroom can make vital contributions to our general well-being.
Made from whole mushrooms including mycelium
Dr. Mercola's Fermented Mushroom Complex is a balanced mix of different mushrooms, including the mycelium. The mycelium is the network of all threads of a fungus. A fruit can emerge from this: a mushroom for example. The mycelium is usually located underground and is an important source of food for many soil-dwelling insects. It is packed with enzymes, antioxidants, minerals and other unique complex compounds.
Each mushroom has a unique effect
Each individual mushroom species included in this complex carries a variety of beta-glucans for molecular structures. When the different strains are combined, this results in an exceptionally powerful mix. Beta-glucans are the most documented, but this mushroom mix including mycelium contains many other bioactive compounds and proteins such as alpha-glucans, antioxidants, enzymes, pectins, ribonucleases, ubiquitin-like proteins, peptides and lectins.
The benefits of fermentation
Dr. Mercola has extensive experience working with fermented ingredients. Fermentation optimizes the benefits of a plant substance and changes its nutritional value. For example, the fermentation helps to pre-convert ingredients, increase active nutrients and to improve the bioavailability of compounds.
Solid State Fermentation
Dr. Mercola’s fermented mushroom complex is produced exclusively from organic mushrooms grown in the USA. The complex is made from the whole mushroom, including the mycelium, and not extracts. Cultivation takes place with certified organic oats, instead of rice. Solid State Fermentation is used for the fermentation and processing of this product. The result is a biologically active product, free from gluten, additives, fillers and unhealthy amounts of toxic heavy metals.
Collaboration with Mushroom Matrix
For this formula Dr. Mercola collaborates with the company Mushroom Matrix (M2), which is led by a team of expert mycologists. M2 has been working with mushrooms from all over the world since the 1980s. As pioneers in the field, they developed the patented production method and equipment for Solid State Fermentation. In 2006 M2 achieved 100% organic certification status for all of their products, and in their California labs produces strictly certified organic mushrooms.
