“We set very high standards for ourselves, not willing to compromise on ingredients. Our mushrooms are sourced from the highest quality farms that use pure extracts from mushrooms grown on wood. Everything in our products is 100% organic and contain no chemical or artificial ingredients. We believe that real healing products need to be made from real ingredients that can be found in nature.
It is now our mission to bring mushrooms to the world in the most fun, delicious, and impactful way.”
Mushrooms are some of the most nutritious super-foods in the world. They have been used since ancient times to:
1. Stimulate the immune system
Mushrooms are neither plants nor animals, they are part of their own Fungi kingdom. The term mushroom is most often used to describe the visible part of the fungus or the reproductive structure (fruiting body). Like fruit on a tree, the fruiting body is only produced under certain conditions in order to spread the seed of the organism. Most often this is where the majority of beneficial compounds can be found. Shroomworks products use only the fruit body.
It’s simple; mushrooms contain numerous compounds that can be of benefit to everyone. This is the reason why major pharmaceutical companies spend big money to employ mycologists. Dedicated teams search forests for new fungal species in hopes of finding breakthrough medicinal compounds.
It is estimated that nearly 70% of all existing drugs still originate from nature. Many drugs in use today are derived from the Fungi Kingdom. Penicillin, the antibiotic responsible for saving millions of lives, was isolated from the Penicillium Fungus. Other drugs such as the Anti Cancer Krestor, popular in Japan, is derived from the Turkey Tail mushroom (Trametes Veriscolor). In fact, the fungi kingdom produces chemicals that may hold potential for benefiting a wide range of human health issues such as bacterial infection, viral infection, cancer, as well as stimulating our immune and nervous systems.
Perhaps this is because the Fungi kingdom is closer to the animal kingdom than any other, and yes, this includes plants. Around 650 millions years ago the animal kingdom branched off from the fungi kingdom.
Humans and fungi still share nearly half of their DNA and are susceptible to many of the same infections. This is why many of their compounds are applicable to us. Compounds such as beta-glucans, triterpenoids, antibiotics, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and more, may hold real value for human health.
We are only now starting to confirm what ancient cultures have known for thousands of years. Mushrooms have within them some of the most potent medicines found in nature. As time goes on, research papers authenticating their benefits are being published with increasing frequency. With shroomshot we hope to share the healing powers of mushrooms in the most healthy, delicious, and powerful way possible.
