Why Earth & Star?
Let’s get one thing straight: we may not be the first to do it, but we are the best, if we do say so ourselves.
Here are just some of the things that make us stand out from the crowd.
1. Dual Extraction Process
We use a dual extraction process to make our mushroom extracts more bioavailable, meaning the body can absorb them more easily.
The first step includes hot water extraction. Mushrooms have water-soluble compounds, like beta-glucans, which aren’t easily absorbed by the body. These compounds are locked behind a “wall” called chitin, which has a pretty tough exterior.
Hot water can dissolve the chitin, making water-soluble compounds more absorbable. This liquid is collected, and the leftover mushroom material is extracted using alcohol.
Alcohol releases the rest of the compounds that aren’t water-soluble, like triterpenes, forming another concentrated liquid. Finally, the two liquids produced by the dual extraction process are combined to form our Mushroom Tincture.
FYI: Be wary of labels like “raw,” fermented,” or “micronized.” Only dual-extracted mushroom tinctures contain compounds that the body can absorb.
2. 100% Mushroom Fruiting Bodies
Our Functional Mushroom Products use 100% fruiting bodies, which is the part of the mushroom that grows above ground. This is the most nutrient-dense mushroom part with the highest concentration of beneficial compounds.
Meanwhile, other brands use mycelium, which gives mushrooms their structural support but provides very little when it comes to actual nutrients. It may be cheaper to grow, but as far as its benefits go, they falter compared to fruiting bodies.
And that’s why you’ll never see us using mycelium in our Functional Mushroom Products.
3. Certified Organic
Your well-being is our bottom line. That’s why our Functional Mushroom Products are made with 100% certified organic ingredients.
Non-organic products expose you to fertilizer and pesticides, which are nasty toxins that can lead to early cognitive decline. No, thanks.
Plus, not only does going organic reduce toxin exposure, but it can increase how much nutritional value you’re getting from your supplements.
Going organic can also support a healthier environment. Chemicals used in agriculture can deplete the soil of valuable nutrients, leading to all sorts of environmental problems. It’s also responsible for reducing the nutritional value of our food.
You’ll never see us use anything that’s been sprayed with chemicals.
