4. Are your mushrooms tested for heavy metals?
All our mushrooms are rigorously and independently tested to ensure purity - we test for metals, pesticides, moulds and microbials with TGA accredited facilities.
5. Are your mushrooms organic?
Yes. All of our organic ingredients and products have been fully traced back to where they were grown by the mineral content of the soil, we know each ingredient well. All our mushroom extracts are 100% organic USDA Certified, we have long standing relationships with all our growers and suppliers and they have been tested under the highest International and Australian organic testing standards. Our Australian 3rd party testing for heavy metals and other contaminants ensures we have provided another layer of confidence in this potent ingredient's quality.
6. Where are your mushrooms sourced from?
Shiitake mushrooms are grown in Deqing Moganshan Fatou township, Fujian Gutian Hetang township, in China. With the cooler climent to the surrounding areas and the lush bamboo forests have created the ideal environment to grow powerful therapeutic mushrooms that are revered throughout the world. Once the mushrooms are fully grown they are then tested twice according to the AHPA American Herbal Products Association. Testing for heavy metal content, active ingredients and purity. China +++
7. What is the process of manufacturing?
Once the mushrooms have passed through our ridgid testing and selection process, they are washed then placed into a giant stainless steel vat with warm water. This enhances the extraction of the active ingredients, it’s not too hot to affect the chemical bonding holding and protecting the structures and preserving them. After this process is completed they are then drawn through a sieve allowing all of the water soluble active ingredients to be removed.
The second process uses alcohol instead of water to extract the medicinal properties. Again after the ingredients are removed they are placed through a sieve and we then have both the fat and water soluble properties of these amazing mushrooms. This process is very effective at preserving the active ingredients, allowing them to live on once individually packed and ready for consumption.
8. Can I take Shiitake if my immune system is healthy?
Yes, building up your immune system is one of the best things you can do to help protect you each and every day. It’s when we get run down or worn out that we are more vulnerable. So by taking something to support your nervous system and your immune system before it is weakened is a massive advantage to help protect yourself.
9. When will I see results?
This is a difficult one to answer as we all have unique and different body's that react in their own way. Some people feel the benefits as soon as they start taking their mushrooms while for others it may take a couple of weeks to a month. We recommend you take daily and consistently and trust the process of your own personal wellness journey.
