therapeutic mushrooms are becoming very popular. like most natural remedies that become popular in the mainstream, the industry is being flooded with low quality, low therapeutic value mushrooms. the majority mushrooms test very low in beta-glucan and active compounds. when a mushroom tests high in polysaccharide content, but low in beta-glucan content, it's basically an exotic potato. high in starch, low in therapeutic value.
our mushrooms are grown by the world's top respected mushroom farm. we literally use the best mushrooms in the world. certified organic, always above 25% total beta-glucan content which makes up at least 70% of the polysaccharide content. these are real mushrooms and they pack real benefits.
mushroom honey + herbal teas.
mushroom honeys can be enjoyed straight form the spoon and are surprisingly tasty, especially considering the large mushroom content. it really is tasty stuff. eating from the spoon is the quickest and most common way to enjoy mushroom honeys, but if you want to step it up a notch, pair the mushroom honey with one of our signature tea blends. we offer stacks that pair mushroom honey with tea blends that amplify and diversify the health and performance benefits. there's a little more prep work involved with preparing a tea, but the combinations are undoubtedly powerful and enjoyable.
to enjoy the mushroom honey + herbal tea combinations, brew the tea as directed on each bag (takes 6-8 mins to steep). after steeping and removing herbs, scoop the mushroom honey and stir it in. don't add the honey until after steeping and removing the herbal tea.
adaption for optimal health.
adaptation is arguably the most important key to modern health and wellness. our environment is changing much faster than our mind-body can physiologically adjust or update. for example, stress is a biological response designed to help us fight or run from danger. unfortunately, this response can't be updated as easily as computer software, even-though our environment is changing as fast as technology. this is why modern dysfunctions are dominated by anxiety, poor sleep quality, inflammation, toxicity, nutrient deficiency and weakened immune system. these systems have not been updated at the rate of our lifestyle changes. not even close!
adaptation at the rate we experience change requires mindfulness and work. there are many ways to help your mind-body adapt to the ever-evolving world we live in. one of the most impactful ways to promote adaptation is supplementation with adaptogenic herbs and mushrooms. these powerful balancing botanicals help decrease your biological sensitivity and response to stress, helping maintain mind-body balance and efficiency. we will continue to experience internal and external stress, this is pretty much guaranteed. adaptogens help prevent a dramatic biological response to stress. a 2009 pharmaceuticals journal publication on the effect of adaptogens on the central nervous system calls this protection the "stress protective effect".
by calming the response to stress you will:
+ promote proactive brainwave state (alpha - lower beta) that is associated with analytical thinking, mental clarity, focus, multi-tasking, better memory retention and recall, happiness and feelings of
+ allow your mind-body to allocate resources to long term health and wellness systems like digestion, nutrient absorption & transport, immune system strength, protein synthesis, neuro-plasticity and neuro-genesis, sex drive.
+ protect you adrenals from fatigue and hormone imbalance.
+ promote sustained mental and physical endurance.
+ promote a balanced circadian rhythm for better sleep and wake cycles.
++++ much more. protecting your mind-body from the damaging effects on ongoing stress can have significant impacts on short and long term health, wellness and performance in all aspects of life.
difference between adaptive cacao and mushroom honey.
roots apothecary's adaptive cacao is very well rounded in serving the mind-body's many highly dependent systems like stress response, digestion, inflammation, mood, cognitive performance and immune system. we use 1x extractions in the adaptive cacao which it's delivers the highly therapeutic properties of each also packed with anti-oxidants, pre-biotic fiber and trace minerals. the benefits of the adaptive cacao are beautifully well rounded, but the adaptive honey packs highly focused and concentrated benefits that are unique to each infusion.
our adaptive honey is highly focused. instead of using 1x extractions, our honey is infused with 8x-10x extractions that concentrate active compounds unique to each mushroom. for example, lion's mane is known for supporting mental clarity, cognitive performance, neurogenesis, neuroplasticity and overall brain health. 1x lion's mane extract delivers these properties with a variety of overlapping benefits with other mushrooms like stress reduction, digestion support and inflammation. 8x lion's mane concentrates the active compounds that promote focus, clarity, neuroplasticity, neurogenesis and overall brain health. while the honey is not as well rounded at the adaptive cacao, it's more powerful and focused on
additionally, our mushroom honey is quicker and easier to prepare. all you need is a spoon. theres additional benefit and enjoyment to adding mushroom honey to your tea or coffee, but its not necessary. while adaptive cacao prep is also pretty quick (3-5 mins), it still requires hot water and plant based milk to prepare. while prep time is not substantial with either product, its something to consider when comparing the adaptive cacao to adaptive honey.
