How is Bristol CBD’s Shiitake Mushroom Tincture made?
Our Shiitake mushrooms are grown on sustainably harvested PEFC/FSC certified birch on an organic certified farm.
To make our potent, Organic Shiitake Mushroom Tincture, we only use the fruiting bodies of the mushrooms, no mycelium. The tincture is triple-extracted with ultrasonic assisted extraction (UAE) technology, as well as alcohol and hot water. This innovative triple extraction ensures the highest potency and maximises the bioavailability of the shiitake so that you absorb more of the compounds found in the fruiting body, such as sterols, eritadenine and beta glucans.
How to take and dosage:
We recommend taking 1 – 2 droppers per day. Each squeeze on the pipette is approximately 1ml. The maximum recommended dose is 2ml per day.
Add Shiitake tincture to your tea, smoothies, soups, water or place directly under your tongue.
Shake before use.
