How our tinctures are made
Our mushroom tinctures are made by a dual extraction process: first the mushroom is soaked in pure grain alcohol for six weeks, shaken often, then strained. The mushroom is then simmered in water overnight to produce a double extract, which is then strained and then mixed in with the alcohol extract. Double extraction is necessary to extract the maximum amount of medicinal compounds in the mushroom since they contain some compounds which are soluble in water, and others that are soluble in alcohol.
Phase I of extraction in alcohol extracts terpenoids and phenolics from the fruiting body of the mushroom. During the Phase II water extraction phase, heat is needed to break down the hard cell walls of the mushrooms to extract the polysaccharides.
Recommended serving: between 1m-3ml, one to three times daily.
Tinctures are best mixed with fluid to dilute the concentrated flavor- add to tea, coffee, cocoa and other hot beverage (the heat will cause the alcohol to evaporate leaving the beneficial compounds in the cup for you to drink), add to smoothies, oatmeal, soups, salad dressing and anything else you would like.
