Legal Functional Mushrooms Reboot your body, mind and spirit with Silo Wellness triple extraction mushroom extracts.
Benefits of Our Triple Extraction Process over Powdered Dry Biomass
Extraction unlocks the mushrooms! We use triple extraction to unlock maximum bioavailability. Fungi cell walls are made of chitin, a modified form of cellulose, which makes unlocking these beneficial molecules difficult in the raw or cooked form (think about ruminants needing to chew their cud). They form a tensile and robust core scaffold to which a variety of proteins and superficial components with fibrous and gel-like carbohydrates form polymers, making a strong and flexible cell wall. The cell wall is a fantastic feature for the fungi in its natural state but not very good for humans trying to unlock their potential.
- Triple extraction process:
- Mushrooms are fermented, to make the polysaccharides, triterpenoids, and alkaloids more accessible.
- Next, we perform a hot water extraction, because polysaccharides are water soluble.
- Finally, 90 days in alcohol draws the nonpolar triterpenoids out.
- It takes around 100 days to make a tincture!
- No gluten, no GMO’s, no pesticides or herbicides
- Mushrooms are certified wild crafted and/or organic
