We have several adaptogenic products featuring premium mushroom extract tinctures and mushroom extract honey blends. Now, you might be asking yourself, what is an adaptogenic product, why use it, and since when did mushrooms become the hottest new superfoods? Yep, we got you covered and breaking it down now.
Adaptogenic products refer to products that contain herbs (or mushrooms) that support the body’s natural ability to manage stress and overall well-being. They’ve become one of the hottest new trends lately as premium mushroom extracts and specialty blends can provide many health benefits through these natural products.
With that in mind, here are some specifics.
Bonvera now has several Myco Matrix adaptogenic products that feature several particular mushroom extracts. In their name, Myco means fungus, and matrix means origin or cellular grid. Essentially, you can see these products are mushroom based extracts in a tincture form (or blended with honey) to be taken orally or mixed into a glass of water, coffee, or tea. All of these mushroom extracts are extracted through a triple extraction process in order to contain pure organic, adaptogenic mushroom extracts to help the body adapt to stress and exert a normalizing effect upon the bodily process. All of the mushrooms are grown from fruiting bodies not myceliated grain, which helps them to be in the purest form for full taste and health effects.
Here are some of the extracts Bonvera carries from Myco Matrix and their benefits:
Cordyceps mushrooms are a type of functional mushrooms, meaning they deliver more than just nutrition but also can positively impact the health of those who eat them. Cordyceps mushrooms are odd looking resembling long strands of orange cheese. They’re actually nicknamed “Himalayan Gold” as they’re mostly found in the grasslands of the Himalayas. Cordyceps are the functional mushroom for boosting athletic performance and health. They help improve respiratory health, increase oxygen uptake, and boost heart health – hence, these are the athlete’s choice! They also help detoxify the body, increase energy, improve the immune system, and slow the aging process down. Play on words here, but you might “win” the gold with this tincture!
Red Reishi Extract & Honey
Grown in hot and humid locations like Asia, the red reishi mushroom is quite a beautiful mushroom if we do say ourselves. It’s arched and wrinkly with a beautiful red tint to it. As a staple used in Eastern medicine, it touts a few benefits. It may help support a strong immune system while facilitating detoxification and improved liver function. It may also help with balancing blood pressure and hormone levels while also helping fight diabetes and allergies and asthma.
A maitake mushroom in Japanese means dancing mushroom. It’s said to have gotten its name after people danced with happiness upon finding these mushrooms in the wild! It’s a type of adaptogen mushroom which assists the body in fighting any type of physical or mental difficulty. Much like a functional mushroom, it’s used mostly for its health benefits on the body. It can help manage sugar levels, lower cholesterol, and protect against diabetes. It’s also antioxidant rich and has many immune benefits. As a whole, they’re rich in vitamins B & C, potassium, fiber, minerals, and amino acids while being fat-free, low-sodium, low-calorie, and cholesterol-free.
Lion’s Mane Extract & Honey
If you look up a lion’s mane mushroom, you’ll understand why they’re called lion’s mane mushrooms. They have long, white strands that stem from them making them look like the fierce king of the jungle. These mushrooms are actually mighty for the brain. They help enhance memory and brain function to help you operate at a higher cognitive function. They may also help improve digestion, enhance your immune system, and helps with peptic ulcers. Due to their benefits for the brain, these mushrooms may also help act as a natural antidepressant. Sweeten your tea or coffee with this tincture and honey blend, and you’ve got a fierce adaptogenic beverage to help you soar (and roar!).
We have Red Reishi, Cordyceps, and Lion’s Mane in both a tincture and honey, and we have Maitake only available as a honey. If you’re looking for a blend, the Immunity Blend extract tincture blends several mushrooms and their support for immune health. They’re easy to add to smoothies, oatmeal, or coffee to keep you and your family well. With these products, it’s easy to incorporate superfoods into your daily routines.
