SMALL POUCH – BIG PUNCH
5 Defenders uses highly concentrated extracts between 8:1 and 15:1 ratios, meaning our 1.59oz pouch is equivalent to 14.9oz of mushrooms. These extracts are made exclusively from 100% organic reishi, chaga, maitake, shiitake and turkey tail mushrooms. Hot water and alcohol extractions are used to obtain the beneficial beta-glucans and triterpenes, plus thousands of other nutrients from the mushrooms. These mushrooms are the most well known for boosting your immunity.
WHY USE EXTRACTS?
The bulk of medicinal mushroom research and traditional use is based on extracts from the fruiting body (mushroom). Extraction breaks down the mushroom cell wall to allow our bodies to access these beneficial compounds. Without extraction, our bodies will not obtain as much of the benefits from medicinal mushrooms. Real Mushrooms strictly uses extracts to be consistent with the research so you’ll be able to be confident in obtaining the benefits of medicinal mushrooms.

Our extracts are 80-90% soluble in water.
GUARANTEED POTENCY – SCIENTIFICALLY VERIFIED
All our products are guaranteed by analytical testing to have the active, medicinal compounds scientifically shown to boost your immune system. Our extract contains greater than 20% Beta-glucans, greater than % reishi triterpenes and less than 3% Starch. Beta-glucans are the main active, most well researched, medicinal compound in mushrooms. We measure beta-glucans specifically because polysaccharides numbers include starch, so polysaccharide testing yields a false sense of quality.
There is a very big difference in the quality of mushroom products. Beware non-extracted powders and products made from mycelium. These products are much less potent than extracted fruiting bodies. On the subject of mycelium products, much of the product is in fact starch so you not only have less potency but end up wasting your money on grain. Read the supplements panel on products very carefully. All our our products are made from 100% organic fruiting bodies.
POLYSACCHARIDES – A FALSE MEASURE OF QUALITY
Many medicinal mushroom products use polysaccharide testing as a measure of quality but it is truly a false indicator. Polysaccharides are complex sugars and they cover a wide variety of compounds including starch, glycogen, cellulose and chitin; many of which don’t seem to be unique to mushrooms. Starch in particular is important to look out for as many products either contain grains from the growing process or contain fillers like dextrose or maltodextrin. These will contribute to the overall polysaccharide numbers giving you a false sense of quality. This is why you will need to look for beta-glucan numbers and if conceivable starch numbers.
All of our Real Mushrooms organic mushroom extract powders are tested for the important beta-glucan compounds and starch. This shows that the product is both potent and pure.
