Is your mushroom supplement in powdered form or an extract?

Joe Kolb
While powdered mushroom supplements are still light years better than those that are mycelium grown on grain, they are still not quite as potent as supplements in extract form. Historically, practitioners of traditional eastern medicine would boil down the body or scerlotia of the mushroom in order to concentrate the medicinal properties. Occasionally, alcohol is added to the process for mushrooms such as chaga or reishi since they possess properties that are not water soluble. Generally speaking, if you are looking for the strongest form of medicinal mushrooms, your best option will be to look for an extract.
