Our business model has always been one of low advertising and high transparency. If you have any questions, never hesitate to ask us. They call it a dual extraction.While it does have lipid soluble triterpenes... It is only a hot water extract. Our capsules are a true dual extract. We also sell an alcohol only extract of Reishi on our website. Another company claims that sellers of cheaper products than theirs either.
A are using mycelia based products with starch from the substrate mixed in, misleadingly elevating the polysaccharide figures this is a real problem, this is why MushroomShen only sells mushroom (fruiting body) extract. Mycelia is indeed cheaper to produce and impossible to separate from any remaining grain/substrate.
B are using real mushroom extract, but adding in starch to elevate the polysaccharide figures (a small problem in some products, especially single serve packages, where the starch is often used to prevent caking). This middle man in Canada buys a lot (maybe all) of their product from a company we also deal with out of China. MushroomShen sometimes sources from them, but we have other suppliers who we feel set an even higher standard than them. The price this retail company charges is quite astounding.
Yes, their beta glucan numbers are slightly higher than ours. Most of ours are standardized to 10% or 15% minimum. The reason we do not retail the higher beta glucan specifications is because they often use an enzyme assisted process in order to achieve greater concentration of certain constituents, often at the expense of having a wider array of active constituents giving a better representation of the whole herb. And finally, perhaps the worst offender... They have yet to respond.Sadly, JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE CLAIMS CERTIFIED ORGANIC, DOESN'T MEAN IT ACTUALLY IS!
