WHAT ARE FUNCTIONAL MUSHROOMS?
Functional mushrooms are specific groups of fungi containing bioactive compounds that have been shown to have health-supporting effects in the body. Most of these mushrooms have a long history of traditional use, particularly in Asia where traditional Chinese herbalists and TCM has utilized fungi in prevention and health for over 3000 years.
Today, the beneficial properties of compounds produced by mushrooms continues to be substantiated by modern science. They naturally produce a myriad of compounds that are capable of modulating our physiological processes.
Functional mushrooms contain polysaccharides called beta-glucans. Beta-glucans have been shown to directly activate receptors in our small intestine and act as immunomodulators, meaning that these compounds interact with the immune system to upregulate or downregulate our immune response.
Functional mushrooms are also packed with triterpenes, phenols, sterols, statins, indole compounds, and enzymes. Mushrooms are also high in amino acids, nicotinic acid, riboflavin, vitamins B, C, and K, and pantothenic acid. Some medicinal mushrooms are also adaptogens.
In addition to their immunomodulating capacity mushrooms display antioxidant, adaptogenic, hepatoprotective, and neuroprotective properties.
WHAT IS AN ADAPTOGEN?
Adaptogens are herbs, plants and mushrooms that help maintain the body's stress response. Research suggests that adaptogens work at a cellular level and have the ability to balance our stress hormones either up or down, helping the body reach equilibrium. Adaptogens have the ability to provide resilience and revitalization to the body improving integrity and helping fight against stress and fatigue. They work over long periods of time.
HOW FREQUENTLY SHOULD I TAKE MUSHROOMS?
Mushrooms are a functional food and can be consumed daily. We recommend 4-8ml (1 half-full dropper = 1 ml) on a consistent basis to experience results. Of course, as mushroom supplementation is personal and subjective, you may choose to take more or less depending on your preference at the moment.
WHAT DOES MUSHROOM "EXTRACT" MEAN?
Mushrooms have cell walls made out of something called chitin. As humans lack the enzyme necessary to break down chitin, the beneficial compounds found in these mushrooms are not readily bioavailable for absorption in the body. An extraction process is necessary in order to break down the chitin and to get access to these compounds. The most beneficial compounds in mushrooms are primarily water-soluble (such as beta-glucans) or alcohol-soluble (such as triterpenoids), and therefore all Rainbo mushroom extracts are made from a dual-extraction using 30% organic GMO-free cane alcohol and 70% spring water. The extraction process pulls out the beta-glucans, triterpenoids among many other beneficial compounds from the mushrooms.
ARE THE BOTTLES RECYCLABLE?
Yes! Both the Tincture bottles and Forest Juice bottles are recyclable. Here are the steps:
Step one: Make sure your tincture is empty!
Step two: Rinse it out with warm soap and water
Step three: Place it in your home recycling bin or reuse it to your liking.
ARE YOUR BOTTLES REUSABLE?
Yes, we invite you to please re-use our bottles. Once you are done your bottle, we recommend cleaning it by removing the top bamboo lid, pulling off the glass pipette by wiggling the glass piece down from the bamboo. Place only the white bottle and glass pipette in hot water. Since our labels are made out of paper only the labels should peel off easily after sitting in hot water for 5 minutes. Rinse the glass pipette and bamboo lid. Don't let the bamboo lid soak in water as it's real wood.
