Reishi, Chaga, and Lion’s Mane all contain important alcohol-soluble compounds, along with water-soluble beta-glucans. Because of this, we perform a dual alcohol/water extraction for those mushrooms.
For Cordyceps, we perform two separate water extractions. One is a hot water extraction to optimize the beta-glucan content, and the other is a cold water extraction to optimize for a higher concentration of Cordycepin.
For Turkey Tail and Maitake, we perform a hot water extraction, which is ideal for these mushrooms.
