Mushrooms as medicine

We help brands develop wellness supplements from mushrooms

Large growing market

Far East traditional medicines have included medicinal mushrooms for millennia in potential therapeutic applications including immunity modulation, sports and fitness, and mental clarity. And now, the western world has started paying closer attention. Largely available as dietary supplements in the form of capsules or tablets, such mushrooms are increasingly getting acceptance as beneficial botanicals.

According to 360MarketUpdates, the global medicinal mushroom market is expected to reach $84 billion by 2026 with the bulk of the 7.6% CAGR driven by North American and European consumer demand.  

Applications of Mushroom nutraceuticals

Asian medicinal uses have amply proven the efficacy of certain mushrooms for their medicinal properties including such as increasing resistance to diseases and causing regression in disease state.
