What are Mushroom Pills or Capsules?
With the growing popularity of functional mushrooms, different forms are starting to appear in the market. Mushroom supplements can be in the form of mushroom extract mixes, drinks, foods, gummies, blends or capsules. But not all mushroom products are made the same. Cheaper varieties will contain fillers, grains, or other growing substrates. When you see myceliated grain, or full spectrum on the label, it refers to the different parts of the mushroom used.
It remains well known that the whole fruiting body of the medicinal mushrooms' life cycle is where MOST of the beneficial compounds can be found. High-quality mushroom pills are made using natural functional mushrooms grown on USDA-Organic Certified farms - just like here at Eversio Wellness. All the mushroom pills and extract blends we provide contain potent and effective mushroom extracts carefully dried and extracted using sophisticated extracting methods. The capsules used to hold our extracts are organic and fungi-based. All because we believe fungi are the future!

Types of Functional
In general, most mushrooms contain antioxidants, nutrients, vitamins, and are beneficial for overall wellness. But, functional mushrooms contain high levels of antioxidants and polysaccharides which have therapeutic medicinal benefits. The effects vary depending on the type of medicinal mushrooms.
Cordyceps: The Stamina Fungus for Athletes
Cordyceps are parasitic fungus called endoparasitoid, that typically grows on insects. However, you can now sometimes find cordyceps growing on downed logs. Although they may appear frightening, these functional mushrooms have been used in traditional Chinese medicines for hundreds of years. Cordyceps are edible medicinal mushrooms with a bright orange color.
Common cordyceps benefits include boosting energy, stamina, and endurance. Cordyceps medicinal mushrooms contain nucleotides which are associated with the growth and maintenance of cells. Nucleosides, called adenosine, are the ATP building blocks. Taking cordyceps capsules can improve libido and decrease fatigue felt in the body.
Lion’s Mane: Your Brain’s Best Friend
Lion's mane has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries for its therapeutic benefits. They are fluffy, shaggy, and white in colour. Typically, lion's mane grows on hardwood trees. Lion's mane is an edible variety of functional mushrooms. When cooked, they have a meaty texture, making them an excellent meat replacement.
One of benefits offered by lion's mane is that it stimulates nerve growth factor (NGF). Lion's mane functional mushrooms contain nootropic factors that are responsible for improving the NGF secretion. NGF is responsible for repairing and maintaining neurons related to memory, cognition, and digestive movement. Taking lion's mane capsules also improves brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) which supports the synthesis of new neurons.
Reishi: Supercharge Your Immune System
Reishi, also called the mushroom of immortality, has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years. These functional mushrooms have a deep red colored body that lightens to orange, white, and yellow around the edges of their cap as they grow.
One of the reishi mushroom benefits is its immune-boosting effects. Reishi is rich in beta-glucans and triterpenes which trigger the immune response. Reishi has been linked with improving the activity of thymus-derived immune cells and T-helper cells. As a result, your immune system can be supercharged by including reishi in your daily routine! Studies show that taking reishi mushroom supplements can promote a healthy sleep cycle and increase your body's resistance to stress.
Turkey Tail: The Defense Your Microbiome Needs
As the name suggests, turkey tail medicinal mushrooms resemble a fanned-out striped color turkey tail. These healthy mushrooms are polypores that grow on fallen and dead trees. The fruiting body of the polypore can be found on living trees in some forests, too.
Some of the turkey tail mushroom benefits include supporting and protecting your gut and supporting your immune health. Turkey tail functional mushrooms contain Polysaccharide Peptide (PSP) and Polysaccharide K (PSK), types of beneficial beta-glucan polysaccharides. PSP and PSK act as warning signals to activate the immune cells when a pathogen is detected in your body. These polysaccharides also act as antioxidants supporting your digestive system.
Tremella: The Beauty Mushroom
Don't be deceived by the loofah appearance of these functional mushrooms! Tremella medicinal mushrooms are called beauty mushrooms and can enhance the water retention of your skin. They have a soft jelly-like consistency and texture and are translucent white to pale yellow in colour. Tremella mushrooms are edible and can be easily incorporated into any dish or taken as mushroom pills.
Tremella mushroom benefits include preventing cell and tissue damage, reducing oxidative stress, and fighting free radicals. These medicinal mushrooms contain high levels of antioxidants which are responsible for neutralizing the free radicals in your body.
Chaga: The Finnish Coffee Substitute
Chaga can easily be confused for a scab or burnt blisters on a tree. On the outside, Chaga has a coal-black brittle crust. While the interior has a golden brown color. Chaga medicinal mushrooms have an earthy and bitter flavor, similar to the birch trees they grow on. They are perfect with tea or coffee, but we offer a full therapeutic dose in just one capsule.
Chaga mushroom benefits include immune system support and strengthening through activating white blood cells and act as a natural anti-inflammatory. These functional mushrooms are rich in antioxidants which help fight free radicals and reduce the oxidative stress in the body. As a result, Chaga is being researched to potentially prevent and slow the progression of cancer.
Mushroom Pills Dosing Guidelines
The number of mushroom pills you need will depend on the type of functional mushrooms you are taking and which personal health and medical condition you want to treat. It is best to talk to your medical practitioner to ensure you are consuming the right type of medicinal mushrooms and their dosing.
