Mush-Mush FAQ

What are Functional Mushrooms?

Put simply – functional mushrooms are the future!

With almost 700 varieties of tonic herbs included in the functional mushrooms category, these potent superfoods have been hailed for their health-promoting properties for centuries. Dubbed the “Food of the Gods”by the ancient Romans, functional mushrooms have been a staple of human diets throughout history and have been significantly studied for their preventative and therapeutic benefits. Among the most extensively researched mushroom varieties are Lion’s Mane, Chaga, Cordyceps, Reishi, Turkey Tail, Shiitake, Maitake, and Tremella.

How do Functional Mushrooms Work?

Functional mushrooms work in a variety of ways to support our overall health and wellness. Many of these mushrooms contain unique compounds, such as beta-glucans, that have immune-modulating effects that help to support the body’s natural defence mechanisms.

Other species of functional mushrooms are rich in antioxidants, which can help to protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals.

Some mushrooms also contain compounds that may have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to reduce inflammation in our joints.

**It is important to note that the specific mechanisms by which functional mushrooms work can vary depending on the specific mushroom and the health condition being targeted.

Where are Mush Mush Functional Mushrooms Grown and Extracted?

Our mushrooms have a unique story to tell. Most of our functional mushrooms are grown organically on hardwood, with a special emphasis on semi-wild environments that feature
natural spring water irrigation and strict Di Dao guidelines.

Reishi is an exception, being grown on hardwood logs that are buried in the ground (the Di Dao way!), and when it comes to Chaga, we go straight to the source and harvest it wild from birch trees in Siberia.
Our Cordyceps is also grown in carefully controlled indoor environments without the use of bug bodies (100% vegan!) Our farms and forest shaded greenhouses are perched in the secluded, grassy mountains, with tailored environments for each strain, and our dedicated harvesters work tirelessly to produce the best possible crop every single harvest.

Can I Use More Than One Functional Mushroom Super blend at Once?

Yes you can! This is called mushroom stacking, and it allows you to tap into extra benefits, or double up on a certain mushroom type for targeted wellbeing.

To stack our functional mushroom superblends, simply add a ½ teaspoon of up to 3 types of Mush Mush super-blends to you chosen beverage or food.

For inspiration on stacking potential, check out our Mush Mush Packs.

What is the Best Time to Take my Functional Mushrooms?

While there are no strict guidelines or rules for when to indulge, our Mush Perform Energy Blend which contain a high dosage of Cordyceps is designed to give you the kickstart you need for the day ahead, making it the perfect morning tonic. Feel free to sip on our other super-blends and beverages whenever you need a boost throughout the day.

What is the Best Way to Con-Shroom my Functional Mushrooms?

Mush Mush functional mushrooms can simply be dissolved into hot water and consumed as a mushroom tea. You can also add our super-blends into any of your favourite beverages including smoothies, coffees, juices, or slushies – you can even bake with them! They are great mixed into pasta sauce or in a salad dressing.

No matter the way you consume, you will receive the incredible benefits these mushrooms have to offer!

How Long Until I Feel the Benefits of Functional Mushrooms?

Consistency is key when it comes to experiencing the power of our mushrooms, and while results may vary from person to person, we recommend starting with 1/2-1 teaspoon per day for a month to allow time for your body to truly feel the benefits. Cordyceps, Reishi, and Lion’s Mane often act fast, with results noticeable within just a few weeks (or even on the first use!). Chaga, on the other hand, may take a bit longer to take effect.

Are Functional Mushrooms Psychoactive?

No tripping here! Functional mushrooms are a totally different species from psychoactive mushrooms and contain zero psychoactive composites.

Functional mushrooms only contain active compounds that promote healing and enhanced wellbeing, so you can absolutely take functional mushrooms every day without any worries.

Is there any reason I should not consume functional mushrooms?

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, are taking any medications or you have a pre-existing medical condition, please consult your healthcare professional before use.

If you are allergic to mushrooms, then you should not consume our products.

Please note: There is currently not enough research available to safely conclude mushroom supplements are safe for use by children. For further guidance, please consult your doctor or paediatrician.
