THE LIFE OF A MUSHROOM
The health benefits of mushrooms are many. Starting with the basics, there are three main parts to a functional mushroom:
mushroom fruiting body
The spore is the beginning of the mushroom life cycle (like a seed).
Each germinating spore produces a hypha (fungal body) that spreads out and grows into a network of branches called a mycelium. Mycelium from a single spore look for a compatible partner mycelium and fuse with it, beginning their adult (reproducing) life. The adult mycelium is able to initiate mushroom formation given the appropriate conditions.
The mushroom is produced above ground and is the reproductive structure of the fungus (like a flower shedding pollen). The mushroom is also known as the “fruiting body” of the organism and will produce more spores in order to reproduce.
WHOLE FRUITING BODY.
NO GRAIN. NO MYCELIUM. NO FILLERS.
Eversio Wellness products are made from ONLY the whole fruiting bodies of the functional mushroom life cycle. Our mushrooms are cultivated on USDA Organic certified farms where wood is used as the natural growing substrate (with the exception of cordyceps). We do not include grain substrates or mycelium in any of our products as they do not contain the same high percentages of Beta-D-glucans and other key bioactive compounds that the fruiting bodies do.
Scientists have discovered that mushroom Beta-D-glucans are the most important component of the cell wall in a mushroom fruiting body. They activate the human immune system, enhancing and increasing the number of macrophages, NK (natural killer) cells, and subsets of T-cells.
Medicinal mushrooms are biological response modifiers and when they are taken over a prolonged period of time as preventative medicine, they keep the immune system on guard. This is what has made medicinal mushrooms a traditional remedy in cancer therapy in conjunction with anti-cancer medicines. In addition, the immunological potentiation of medicinal mushrooms has not only been shown to protect against cancers, but also acts as a shield against viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections.
