Basis for Quality Determination in Medicinal Mushrooms
While medicinally active mushrooms have certainly been collected from nature and used for a long time, the cultivation of mushrooms specifically for the production of medicinal compounds is a new practice, dating only from the late 1970’s. Since that time, there have been a number of bio-active ‘compounds of interest’ identified from mushrooms, including compounds from the fruitbodies, the mycelium and the residual culture broth or solid substrate residue.
Our Manufacturing Process
We are often asked “How are Medicinal mushrooms grown?” This is a highly specialized branch of the biotechnology industry called Sterile Tissue Culture. Aloha Medicinals is the world’s leader in this field, and the largest producer of Medicinal Mushrooms in the world today.
Top quality mushroom products all start with lab growing of the raw materials. We then control each aspect of the growth cycle to ensure you receive the highest quality and most consistent medicinal mushroom product available anywhere.
– The Process in Detail –
- Mushrooms belong to the Kingdom of Fungi. It has been known for a long time that fungi produce potent bioactive compounds with medicinal properties. Classic examples of this fungal-derived class of medicines are antibiotics, such as Penicillin.
- In developing our production processes, Aloha Medicinals looked at the chemistry of the wild collected fruitbodies, of the mycelia and of the extracellular compounds, and all that was known about the bioactivity of each in the human body. We then developed special growing methods including custom made growing chambers, strictly defined growth substrates (no sawdust, straw or compost is used) and specially modified growth parameters such as climate control for temperature, light cycle, air quality and composition to maximize the production of targeted medicinal compounds.
- By controlling each aspect of the growth cycle, Aloha Medicinals is able to produce the highest quality and the most consistent medicinal mushroom products available anywhere today, while ensuring against all possible contamination of pesticides, herbicides or other residues.
- If you want the highest quality medicinal mushroom products available today, Aloha Medicinals is your best choice. 100% Certified Organic by the USDA and EU. Whether you need Full Spectrum Myco-products, or a concentrated extract.
