The magic of the mushroom comes from thousands of micro-compounds and nutrients, all of which are extremely beneficial to our health. All of these 20 mushrooms are adaptogens, containing various vitamins, polysaccharides, beta-glucans, secondary metabolites and Polyphenols and carotenoids in their fruiting bodies. Each of them serves specific function and they are all included in equal amounts. As you can see these nutrients are broad spectrum and provide each of our bodies what we uniquely need to thrive. Think of them as the Swiss army knife of superfoods.
How Boku makes Super Shrooms:
We work closely with our farmers to put together a special proprietary blend of “20″ of the most nutritious, organic specialty mushrooms that are grown and cultivated in the USA. Inside the cell walls of mushrooms, there are Polysaccharides, most noteworthy, Beta-Glucans. The 1,3 – Beta Glucans tightly bound to the cell walls and have a low degree of bio-availability in a raw mushroom. To overcome this and to increase the bio-availability of the constituents, all our mushrooms undergo a steam extraction process that makes the nutrients more bio-available than hot water extraction. This process breaks down the cell wall to release the Beta Glucans, the nutrient where all the magic lies. We then dry them at room temperature and blend them into a fine powder, releasing all of the available nutrients. Afterward
How to Use:
- Boost your daily smoothies along with Boku Superfood and Protein, add to savory food dishes, or (Our Personal Favorite) use a scoop to steep and make tea in 12 ounces of hot water.
When to use Super ‘Shrooms:
- Any time of the day!

Finally, four thieves were captured in Marseilles, France and offered up their secret to immunity, in exchange for leniency. It was disclosed that these thieves were perfumers and spice traders who had rubbed themselves and doused their clothing with a concoction of functional essential oils, including eucalyptus, rosemary, peppermint, lemon, and others.
