I have a product that says it is mycelium and mushrooms; is that a good combination?
Some companies make the claim that their product has “all stages”, or is a “unique combination” of mushrooms and mycelium.
They may also claim this is therefore “full spectrum”. They make further claims that this provides a more diverse menu of medicinal compounds. A mushroom and its mycelium are actually made of similar tissue, but with important differences.
Mushrooms are genetically more complex and have more medicinal properties.
Look to see if the companies that make this claim actually give you a percentage of each fungal part.
One company that makes this claim uses only 10% mushroom in one of their products. Another doesn’t even state how much of their mycelium product is actual mushroom.
Don’t be fooled. Mushrooms are more expensive and therefore likely to be left out or included in small amounts just to make the claim of being present.
