Top 15 Best Mushroom Supplements (Blends) Of 2020 | Brands Reviewed

When considering the best mushroom supplements (blends) to get be careful to check the label for mycelium or fruiting body, because there is a big difference in the medicinal benefit you will receive.

When it comes to choosing between a mycelium or fruiting body soured mushroom supplement there seems to be a lot of confusing.  So, let’s clear it up right now.

Mycelium vs. Fruiting Body Mushroom Supplements

Mycelium is basically the roots of the mushroom.  The spread through the ground in a ‘spiderweb’ like fashion similar to that as the roots of a tree.

Eventually the mycelium needs to reproduce so it creates the fruiting body which is the physical mushroom that you see and eat.  The fruiting body is the final culmination of what the mycelium tries to produce and is considered ‘full spectrum’.

The mycelium is super tiny and only contains trace amounts of the beneficial medical nutrients, (e.g. Beta glucans) that you desire to get.  You will normally see supplements that source mycelium to put the polysaccharide amounts on the back of the label.

If you don’t understand what polysaccharides are you might thing that it is good to see >50%.  But really the lower the number the better.

You see, polysaccharides are found in high amounts with mycelium supplements because the spiderweb like texture grasps on tightly to the substrate that it is growing in and is almost impossible to completely separate the mycelium from the substrate.  Therefore, high in polysaccarides means it’s high in substrate included with the myclium extract.

The fruiting body is really what you want to look for when you are looking at the label on the mushroom supplement.

fruiting body mushroom supplement label

Mycelium supplements are commonly used instead of fruiting body supplement because they are easier and quicker to produce.  Mycelium can start growing within a week where as a fruiting body can take months to produce.

Due to all of this, all supplement blends that we will be looking at today are fruiting body only supplements.  Additionally all mushroom supplement here are blends and contain at least 5 medicinal mushrooms.  Mushroom supplements are ranked with 1 being the best and 15 being the lowest.

# of Mushroom in Blend: 10

Extract:  Yes

Fermented: No

Certifications: Non-GMO, Vegan, USDA Organic, FDA

Mushrooms in Blend: Chaga, Lion’s Mane, Maitake, Reishi, Shiitake, Turkey Tail, Cordyceps, Phellinus Linteus, Oyster, Wood Ear.

Sourced: Untouched mountains of China.

Comments:

The reason this one made my #1 medicinal mushroom supplement blend is because of it has one of the highest levels of Beta D-Glucans and lowest levels of polysaccharides.

Additionally, it has one of the highest ratios for the mushroom extract which is 14:1.  This means they had to grind up 14 grams of mushrooms to get 1 grams of extract.  And if you consider how high the Beta Glucans and how low the polysaccharides, that means this is a very powerful supplement.

One other bonus I liked was that they source their mushrooms in the mostly untouched mountains of China.  They 3rd party test and manufacture the product in the USA.  Most mushrooms used in supplements are farmed in pollution rich cities.

An interesting fact:  They were the first to do a 10 mushroom blend which was later copied by Micro Ingredients but they made it as a powder instead of an extract.

Comments:

This one came in second because it only has a 10:1 extract ratio and it isn’t source in the fresh open air.  It is however sourced in the USA which is a plus because of the USA’s high reputation for delivering high quality and it’s many regulations.

Everything else remains the same as in the first extract except they make no mention of how much of their supplement is polysaccharides.

Comments:

This one seems like the ingredients are lower however they have 80 servings in a bag.  So even though it says 700 mg in a serving you can just take a coupe scoops to get more of it.

I love their choice of mushroom in the blend, they have nice and high Beta Glucan levels, great reviews and they are also a family run and operated business.  One big downside is it has a low extract ratio of 1:1.

Comments:

For this one I really love the choice of the 8 mushrooms they picked for this supplement blend.  They claim that they mushrooms they use are grown in the mountains of China, shade houses in China or wild picked.

The big draw backs for this one is the low amount of ingredients in the serving size and the lower level of Beta Glucans.

Mushrooms in Blend: Chaga, Lion’s Mane, Maitake, Reishi, Agaricus Blazei, Shiitake, Turkey Tail, Cordyceps.

Sourced: Multiple locations

Comments:

From this point on all the remaining mushroom supplements don’t measure the Beta Glucan levels in their ingredients.  That is the main reason they have been moved this far down the list.

The good side to this supplement is they use fermented mushroom supplements which has been proven to help with the bio availability, absorption and provide increased health benefits then non-fermented supplements.

One big downside to this supplement is they don’t mention if it is an extract or just ground up mushroom.  Hopefully they used an extract otherwise the absorption would be really poor.  I have reached out to them to find out if it is an extract.

Comments:

This one doesn’t put on the bottle anything about being grown in the USA or that it is an extract but when asked the question they do say it is an extract and that is it grown in the USA.

This one I just don’t get a good feeling about because they don’t put anything on the label but claim a lot of stuff unofficially.  Also, they put strange dosages of each ingredient without any explanation as of why.

Conclusion

All reviews, ratings and pricing were based upon products on Amazon as of 15 February of 2020. Some supplements are in capsules and others on in powder form.  Also, almost all of them are gluten free and support the immune system.

So those are the top 15 best mushroom supplements that I found through my research online.  Anyone of them would be a good choice to choose from but I would go with the one that I ranked as #1.  Host Defense and Genius Mushrooms brands were reviewed but did not make my list because the use mycelium as their ingredients.

Some side effects could occur if you take the supplements in excessive amounts however if you follow the recommended dosages on the packaging you should be fine.

Whatever you decide I hope you go with a supplement that uses the actual fruiting body instead of the mycelium.  Let me know in the comments below which one of my top 15 best mushroom supplements that you chose to go with.
