Mason's Mushrooms

Medicinal mushrooms are intelligent immune boosters, gut healers, stress busters & hormone balancers. We invite you to welcome these potent herbs into your life.

Description

Mason's Mushrooms is a super-blend of the world's favourite medicinal mushrooms in a single product, hand-picked to support immunity, gut health, hormonal function, and the nervous system.

These eight mushrooms were some of the most revered and cherished by the traditional healers the world over, especially the Taoists.

Mason's Mushrooms is an immunological powerhouse and supports the body to return to harmony through normalising the nervous and hormonal systems as well as regulating the Qi of all major organs. This blend is both the perfect starting point for someone wanting to begin their journey towards radiant health, or for the well versed herbalist to maintain their daily dose of medicinal mushrooms.

The full benefits of mushrooms (immunity, gut health, general wellbeing) just keep getting better over time; this blend shows us why the Taoists considered mushrooms the 'great protectors' of the herbal kingdom.' Medicinal mushrooms typically work to strengthen the Spleen and Lung channels; this blend also works on the Liver, Kidney, and Heart channels making it a full-power formula to bring overall harmony and vitality to the body.

Sourcing

Each mushroom is carefully sourced from traditional herb-producing regions of China and always grown on wood, with the exception of our CS-4 Cordyceps which is produced via liquid fermentation. Sourcing herbs from their spiritual homeland is born from the Taoist philosophy, called Di Dao (地道). Di Dao poetically translates as the ‘way of the Earth,’ and shows us where to harvest herbs if we wish to experience the herb’s true Spirit. From its ‘original place’ or ‘spiritual homeland’, a method that results in a product that is both full spectrum and medicinally robust.

Contraindications

Not suitable for those with culinary mushroom allergies. If you are on blood thinners or blood pressure medication, please check with your prescribing doctor if a medicinal mushroom formulation is appropriate for you. Talk to a TCM practitioner / health professional if you are unsure if this medicine is right for you. If symptoms persist, talk to your health professional.

Serving Suggestion

Time of day

Allow the Mason’s Mushrooms to bring vibrancy and energy to your favourite hot tonic or morning coffee, or enjoy it as an afternoon pick me up. We love it mixed into a black tea with milk and honey, in our hot chocolates or on its own with hot water, in a broth or a meal.

Frequency

Generally, we recommend taking the herbs daily in small doses, to begin with. This allows you to develop an understanding and acknowledgment of how the herbs are unfolding their medicinal magic for you. Follow the dosage instructions on the package, or start with 1/8 - 1/2 teaspoon per day, adjusting the dose if you feel it necessary within your unique body system.

Dosage

Doses can be taken as high as two teaspoons per day, however, most people find their sweet spot with 1/2 to one teaspoon per product, per day. We call this sweet spot your "lifestyle dose". We don't recommend taking more than two tablespoons of herbs a day. These extracts are potent, and you want to take care not to overload the body with too much of a good thing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take Mason’s Mushroom whilst pregnant?

Tonic herbs are generally warming, building, and nourishing. In the context of health optimisation and the Taoist tradition, tonic herbs are not directly used to treat individual symptoms, instead to create harmony and strength within the system as a whole.

In this regard, we generally only recommend our Reishi and Eucommia Bark during pregnancy as there is quite a lot of empirical use of these herbs in pregnancy in Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Taoist Tonic Herbalism.

As pregnancy is a very individual journey, we recommend checking in with your health care provider when starting on any new herbs or supplements as they will have a more comprehensive scope of your medical history.

Can I take Mason’s Mushroom while breastfeeding?

Yes, you can use Mason’s Mushrooms whilst breastfeeding.
We always suggest introducing new herbs slowly and in low doses, this allows the body to adjust and benefits to unfold at a pace relevant to your individual system.
