Mushroom supplements are dietary supplements that are made from various species of mushrooms. They’re used for their potential health benefits. The active compounds in mushrooms, such as beta-glucans, polysaccharides, and triterpenoids, are believed to be responsible for their effects on the body.
Mushroom supplements come in various forms, including capsules, powders, and teas, and are marketed for a range of potential benefits, such as supporting the immune system, reducing stress and anxiety, improving sleep quality, and promoting heart health. Some of the most commonly used mushrooms in supplements include reishi, chaga, cordyceps, and shiitake.
At The Calm Leaf, you will also find psychoactive mushroom products, which use amanita mushrooms. These mushrooms are legal in the United States. But even better, they provide you with an intoxicating high that feels euphoric, calming, and creativity-enhancing. All of the mushroom products we carry have undergone extensive lab-testing and are made with mushrooms that’re known to be safe for human consumption.
