SHIITAKE (LENTINULA EDODES) – ORGANIC LIQUID EXTRACT, FOOD SUPPLEMENT
Contents: 50 ml glass bottle
Shii-Take, sawtooh oak, black forest mushroom, black mushroom or golden oak.
The Shiitake (Lentinula edodes) mushrooms are grown on certified raw materials that are 100% organic. According to the laboratory analysis of the AGROLAB laboratory group, no contamination from pesticides, PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons – plasticizers) and no radioactive radiation is detectable in this liquid extract. This means that these substances are not only below the legally permitted limit value, but cannot even be detected in the product. The detailed analysis test reports are available on request. No sugar is added to the product. The shiitake mushrooms used for this product naturally contain carbohydrates and sugars, including polysaccharides / beta glucans.
5 ml (1 teaspoon) of the Shiitake liquid extract dissolved in a glass of water, fruit juice or another drink daily, take 30 minutes before meals. The amount consumed can be increased to 10 ml twice a day (2 teaspoons each morning and evening) when there is an increased need for nutrients or if you want to combine several varieties.
Due to the improved bioavailability, with just 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of this new liquid extract, the body absorbs the same amount of polysaccharides and other shiitake mushroom ingredients as when consuming approx. 38 mushroom powder capsules.
This new formula also improves the bioavailability (the ability of the active substances to be absorbed in the intestine and to reach the site of action) of the active ingredients contained in the extract. This new and innovative manufacturing process creates a product with which the entire spectrum of active ingredients in mushrooms can be ideally absorbed by the body in a highly concentrated liquid form.
ADVANTAGES OF THE INNOVATIVE MANUFACTURING PROCESS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF THE MEDICINAL MUSHROOM LIQUID EXTRACT
Shiitake medicinal mushroom liquid extract is produced using a unique, developed process. This new production technology makes this product stand out from other shiitake preparations. With this new technology, for the first time, all organic and inorganic ingredients in shiitake can be extracted and concentrated in liquid form. This creates a holistic chaga mushroom extract of the highest quality.
The powder extracts available up to now are mainly pure hot water extracts and contain only the water-soluble mushroom ingredients, mainly the polysaccharides. Other valuable substances that have a lipophilic character, such as sparingly water-soluble triterpenes and fat-soluble vitamins, are missing in conventional powder extracts.
This new organic medicinal mushroom liquid extract, on the other hand, contains not only polysaccharides and peptidoglycans but also many other valuable organic substances found in the mushrooms. These include essential amino acids, triterpenes, minerals (Ca, P, Na, K) and trace elements (Fe, Zn, Cu, Mn, Se), as well as vitamins (ergosterol – a precursor of vitamin D2).
ORIGIN OF THE RAW MATERIALS (SHIITAKE MUSHROOMS) FOR THE EXTRACTION PROCESS
The shiitake mushrooms come from controlled wild collection in the certified organic forests. They are gently dried after harvest in order to preserve the ingredients as much as possible. The next step is alcoholic extraction. Only pure bio-ethanol, distilled from organically grown grain, is used as the extraction agent. This extraction step takes several days during which the alcohol-soluble ingredients are released from the mushrooms, after which the mushrooms are filtered off and prepared for the next extraction step. The alcohol from the extract is evaporated by distillation. This makes the end product alcohol-free. In the next step, the water-soluble substances are removed from the mushroom material by means of water extraction. At the end of the production process, the two extracts (with hydrophilic and lipophilic substances) are combined and homogenized with vegetable bio-glycerine from sunflower seeds. Glycerine is a completely body-friendly substance that encloses the vitamin and mineral molecules and prevents any quality defects during storage. In addition, glycerine supports absorption so that valuable active ingredients can be absorbed even in the case of intestinal problems and it gives the liquid extract a pleasant taste.
