Is there a difference between a powdered mushroom and a mushroom extract?

Mushroom powder means that the mushroom mass is dried and crushed powder. Such products have almost no health-related effect. The bio active substances of the mushrooms are 'locked' behind the chitinos walls of their cells, and without extraction they are not biologically available to us. Non-ecqueathed additives are of low absorption and cannot provide a sufficient amount of active substances. In addition, their composition varies and the dosage is difficult to determine. It is no coincidence that in the traditional medical practice of the East, mushrooms are used only in decoctions, parks and soups, and not as raw, dried and crushed biomass powder.

To ensure the absorption of fungi in the human body, fungi must go through an extraction process. Extraction allows bio active substances to be extracted in an accessible form that contributes to human health. Therefore, we use standardized extracts, not just dried and powdered mushrooms. In this way, we guarantee the absorption and efficiency of the products we offer.

 

What is mushroom extraction?

Medicinal mushrooms can be taken in several ways:

  • Fresh, used for preparing different dishes
  • Dried and crushed powder
  • In the form of extracts

Use in the form of extracts is the best way to consume medicinal mushrooms. The extraction process breaks down chitinoin in the mushroom cell walls, which we humans cannot do because we do not have the necessary amounts of enzyme. After extraction, bio active compounds become available, in concentrated form and we can fully benefit from their benefits.

For extraction, hot water or ethanol is usually used depending on the active ingredients we want to get from the mushrooms. Water extraction gives high concentrations of polyzaccharides, but low levels of slightly water-soluble triterpenes. Alcohol extraction provides higher levels of triterpenes, but fewer polyzaccharides.

 

Does it matter how the mushroom extract is made?

Mushrooms consist of two parts: mycelium (mushroom) and a fruit body. Mycelium is a tangle of thin strands called hippies that penetrate the food medium (substrate) and from which the upper part of the fungus develops. They breed through spores. One part of the mushrooms form dense of different size fruit bodies above the ground.

Mycelium extracts have a lower content of bio active substances compared to fruit bodies. It is the cheaper alternative that is produced faster. Mycelium actually contains very few of the important compounds, vitamins and nutrients of the fruit body. The extracts we offer are solely from fruit mushroom bodies, high in beta-glucans and triterpenes.

 

Can I take mushroom or herbal extracts and tinctures instead of medications?

The products offered by Koreavita are NOT medicinal products. They should not be used as a substitute for drug therapy. They can be used in parallel with taking medicines, but if you have specific questions and are not sure, we recommend that you consult your doctor.

 

What side effects can I expect?

For several dozen years, medicinal mushrooms have been the focus of scientific research. Many studies have been carried out and the database continues to grow. Based on the available information medicinal mushrooms can be considered safe for most people subject to the indicated dose and average intake of 16 weeks. However, it should be borne in mind that more research is to be done and there are certain conditions under which you should approach carefully:

  • The use of Chaga and Reishi may increase the risk of bleeding in people with blood clotting disorders. Lion's Mane and Cordyceps can also slow down the blood clotting process. Although this effect is beneficial, as it hinders blood thickening and the formation of blood clots, be careful with parallel intake of anticoagulant medications. If you have a condition called thrombocytopenia, do not use these mushrooms. Also, due to the possibility of an increased risk of bleeding during surgery, do not use them at least two weeks before the scheduled operation.
  • If you have diabetes, be careful when taking Chaga and Lion's Mane because they lower blood sugar levels.
  • If you have too low blood pressure do not use reishi. Studies have shown that it can lower your blood pressure and make your condition worse and prevent treatment.
  • Chaga contains high concentrations of oxalate and there is a report of a 72-year-old Japanese woman diagnosed with liver cancer who developed oxalate nephropathy after consuming 4 - 5 tsp chaga powder per day for 6 months.
  • Cordyceps can lead to higher immune system activity. Approach extremely carefully with autoimmune diseases due to the risk of increasing their symptoms.

If you have specific diseases and are not sure if you should take our products, we strongly recommend that you consult your attending physician.

 

Intake of extracts of medicinal mushrooms in pregnancy, lactation and young children

There is not enough information about the safety of taking extracts of medicinal mushrooms during pregnancy, lactation and from young children. Therefore, we advise you to consult your doctor in advance. But we personally believe that they are safe for everyone, from children to the elderly.

 

When will I feel the effect of the extract or tincture I take?

This is very subjective, since each of us is a separate, strictly individual organism. When you will have results depends on your metabolism, your current state of health, the degree of susceptibility, the persistence of your intake. The benefits can be felt almost immediately or take from a few weeks to a month, even two, to feel changes. Taking dietary supplements is also associated with consistency that will allow the accumulation of benefits over time. We recommend regular intake for at least 30-60 days to allow the bio active ingredients to be 'deployed' in your body.

 

Does it matter when and what I take medicinal mushroom extracts with?

Not. Mushrooms, like fruits and vegetables, are a functional food and have been used as such for hundreds of years. Combining them with other foods and mushrooms can only expand their spectrum of positive impact. Single mushrooms (Lion's Mane, Mesima, Chaga) are great for targeted support in a particular problem, but can be safely taken with other products and mushrooms. The used herbal capsules Vcaps® Plus HPMC have a decay that does not depend on the pH of the gastric contents and does not cause additional irritation of the gastric mucosa. Extracts of medicinal mushrooms are compatible with parallel-conducted medication treatment. Some of them, such as Mesima, for example, may even have a synergistic effect with the ongoing therapy.

 

Can I follow a vegan and kosher diet while drinking the dietary supplements of Koreavita and Nutri- Fungi?

To. The lack of ingredients of animal origin and compliance with kosher requirements in the production of raw materials allow you to follow a vegan and kosher diet.
