Mushroom Power Ingredients
Mushroom Power is a formulation of functional mushrooms and botanicals, carefully selected to enhance the performance boosting qualities of these fungal powerhouses.
All of our mushrooms are grown outdoors, under natural light, on organic wood substrates. We perform dual-extractions of fruiting bodies only, with both organic alcohol and water.
How Does Mushroom Power Work?
As we age our ability to produce testosterone and other androgens naturally begins to decline. This senescence can be greatly exaggerated by stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, and environmental pollutants like xeno-estrogens that come from plastic and pharmaceutical waste (which is everywhere unfortunately).
Synthetic solutions for increasing testosterone often create short term benefits at the expense of long term health, and come with serious potential side effects. Testosterone is necessary for bodily functions like cognition, muscle recovery, bone mass, fat distribution, lean muscle mass, drive, strength, stamina, and the production of red blood cells. So it is essential that we find natural ways to support healthy testosterone levels.
Mushroom Power is completely natural, formulated entirely with functional mushrooms, organic and wild harvested botanicals, and compounds our body naturally produces on its own (alpha gpc). The Mushroom Power formula stands on these 3 pillars of natural ingredients to effectively support hormone and metabolic health.
First, is the fungal pillar. Power contains potent extracts of Cordyceps and Chaga. Both of these mushrooms are known to support athletic performance, recovery, and all around virility.
Second, is the botanical pillar. Power contains potent extracts of wild harvested Canadian Pine Pollen, wild harvested Nettle Root, and organic Beet Root. Pine Pollen is an extremely nutritive herb that contains phyto-androgens — plant produced compounds that perfectly mimic human-androgens. Nettles Root is also an incredibly nutritive herb that is a SHBG inhibitor — which support greater amounts of free testosterone. Beet Root is a potent source of Nitric Oxide — NO is known to support energy and athletic performance.
Third, is the mineral pillar. Power contains pure Alpha GPC. Alpha GPC is a neurotransmitter that our bodies naturally produce — when its supplemented Alpha GPC supports the natural production of Human Growth Hormone.
The synergy of these 3 pillars of ingredients makes for a powerful formula to support healthy hormone levels.
How To Use Mushroom Power?
Start with 1/2 to 1 dropper full.
It’s best to hold the liquid under your tongue for 2 minutes before swallowing. If you are new to working with herbal tinctures, it can taste quite bitter (bitterness is an indication of potency!).
If its too difficult to hold under your tongue, you can immediately swallow the liquid, or mix a dropper full into a beverage like water or coffee.
Mushroom Power is not formulated to produce an immediate effect or altered state. Most people notice the benefits of the tincture begin to appear with consistent use. This includes feeling increased drive, experiencing healthier hormone levels, and having more strength and vitality.
We recommend using Mushroom Power in the morning when your testosterone levels are naturally the highest. We have also found the morning to be the optimal time to do cardio focused exercises. The late afternoon / early evening is also an ideal time to take Power, especially when paired with weight lifting exercises focused on legs or back muscle groups.
Frequently asked questions
How do I incorporate Mushroom Power into a microdosing protocol?
Mushroom Power is formulated to stack with any of our microdosing formulas, or with a protocol you may already have in place.
Mushroom Power can be taken at the same time that you take your microdose, or staggered throughout the day either before or after your microdose.
We encourage you to explore and find a time that works best best for you.
Are your products legal?
Yes! Which is why Kanna is such an excellent candidate to explore the world of microdosing.
All of our formulas and ingredients are 100% legal. Our microdoses are solely made with kanna (sceletium tortuosum) and do not contain any scheduled substances. We will not be able to answer any questions or requests about illicit substances.
Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to supporting you on your microdosing journey!
Are your mushrooms certified organic?
Yes! All of our mushrooms are USDA Certified Organic.
In fact, we work with a collective of growers who have one of the first Organic Mushroom Certifications in the world.
We only work with growers that follow beyond organic and ethical growing practices.
Where do you get your mushrooms?
Our mushrooms come from a collective of farmers in China who have been cultivating medicinal mushrooms for over 5 generations.
There is a lot of stigma around mushrooms grown in China, perhaps rightfully so, but you can find low quality ingredients produced in the USA too!
The reality is that currently the most potent and pure mushroom extracts commercially available come from China, and that’s why we use them.
Our mushrooms are grown far from industrialization, high in the mountains of the Yunnan province in China. Here our mushrooms are grown outdoors, in fresh air, on natural wood substrates (like logs), and tended by real people who have been caring for mushrooms for generations. We use only the mushroom fruiting body to create our dual extracts in our line of formulas.
These growing techniques result in a dramatically healthier and more potent mushroom, when compared to those commercially grown in the USA, in sterile laboratory conditions, under artificial light, on grain substrates (the grain ends up in your supplement too!), and cultivated in mass by heavy machinery.
All of our mushrooms are third party tested and surpass all US standards for heavy metals, pesticides, and other contaminants.
How are your mushrooms tested?
Every ingredient we use is thoroughly tested by third parties for purity and contaminants, including microbial screening for any bacteria, yeast, and mold; heavy metals; pesticides; as well as testing for purity and active compounds.
Can I take your formulas while on medication?
First, we are not doctors and cannot give medical advice.
If you are on any prescription medications or health protocols, it is very important that you have a conversation with your prescribing physician before taking any of our formulas.
Are your formulas safe when pregnant or breastfeeding?
At this time there is not enough research to say with certainty, so we do not recommend it.
