FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Our mushrooms come from farms located in the mountainous regions of the Chinese province of Fujian, where they have been grown with the use of traditional methods for hundreds of years. They are grown on natural wood and they are found in the wilderness We use only mushroom fruiting bodies(pericarps), without any additives and unnecessary extenders.
All mushrooms are tested for the presence of heavy metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and the most important microbiological parameters in order to ensure maximum food safety
If it is difficult to dissolve the mushrooms, we recommend to add the extract to the bottom of the cup and then gradually add coffee / tea while stirring. You can also use a manual milk frother to dissolve the mushrooms.
10: 1, or DER (Drug Extract Ratio) - it is the ratio of the amount of the raw material to the amount of the obtained extract.
To obtain 1 kg of extract, we use 10 kg of dried mushrooms. This is to concentrate the active substances in the product and to facilitate the consumption for an effective daily portion. One scoop (500 mg) corresponds to 5 g of dried mushrooms.
If we combine both products, it is good to limit Brain Tech consumption to 4/5 days a week with a break on other days.
Lion's mane can be taken daily during this time.
We only use mushroom fruiting bodies(pericarps). This is due to the willingness to obtain a pure mushroom extract. When dealing with mycelium-based supplements, it may turn out that even 60-70% of such an extract will be starch instead of a mushroom, without the health effects attributed to mushrooms. This is due to the inability to separate the mycelium from the medium on which it grows. After colonization by the fungus of the medium, the whole mushroom is grounded and subjected to extraction processes. It is a cheap and quick way to grow mushrooms without bringing them to the fruiting stage.
Our mushroom extracts do not meet the standardization for a specific amount of polysaccharides, as it is not a determinant of the quality of the extract. Mushroom products contain many types of polysaccharides such as chitin, alpha glucans or beta glucans.
Alpha glucans are compounds that do not have properties attributed to fungi. Usually derived from the starch medium on which the fungus grows. We deal with them in the case of products based on mycelium (mycelium) or mushroom biomass, which is a mixture of mycelium and fruiting bodies.
Active substances are also polysaccharides, while with a different configuration - these are BetaD-glucans 1-3 and 1-6. They are found in the fruiting bodies of mushrooms.
Dry mushroom fruiting bodies are grounded into fine dust and then extracted with hot water and alcohol.
Water dissolves the chitin cell walls of fungi and extracts compounds such as beta glucans (biologically active polysaccharides in mushrooms). Since we do not have an enzyme that would effectively digest chitin - hot water extraction is the basis for the bioavailability of mushroom preparations. Alcohol, on the other hand, allows the extraction of water-insoluble compounds, such as triterpenes.
After concentrating the extract, a spray drying process follows, leaving the final dry extract. Spray drying is the optimal process of dewatering wet extracts - minimizing the loss of nutrients.
Extraction is the optimal way to process mushrooms in order to extract the active substances. They are enclosed in the fungal cell walls made of chitin. We do not have an enzyme that can digest chitin and therefore the mushrooms should be subjected to extraction processes. Extraction makes the raw material fully digestible for our body.
Lion's mane and Cordyceps, as mushrooms supporting alertness and increasing energy levels, are best taken in the first part of the day or before training. If you add mushrooms to coffee, it is worth limiting its consumption to 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. This will reduce the negative effect of caffeine on sleep quality. A good alternative to coffee is to drink the mushrooms in tea.
Due to its toning and calming properties, Reishi should be taken in the evening, preferably with green tea or cocoa.
In the case of Chaga mushrooms, the time of consumption does not matter
