Organic Fermented Myco Blend - Living Nutrition
Not one, not two, but three of the world's leading medicinal mushrooms are combined in Living Nutrition's unique Fermented Myco Blend.
The combination of fermented Reishi Spores, Lion's Mane and Cordyceps creates a "living" supplement that can support the immune system, cognitive functions and contribute to normal energy levels. Try it yourself!
History of the use of medicinal mushrooms
That medicinal mushrooms have a tremendously long history of use was confirmed by the discovery of "Ötzi," the glacial mummy.
This was a Neolithic-era human being who had been preserved almost completely intact by the freezing cold of the glacier.
Because the mummy was so well preserved, it was also easy to see what kind of luggage Ötzi was carrying with him: one of the things he carried was a mushroom! Which is now known for its antibiotic, anti-parasitic and antiviral properties.
Fermented medicinal mushrooms capsules
Living Nutrition uses a carefully selected fermentation process for this fermented mushroom supplement line that naturally increases the bioavailability of the medicinal mushrooms.
After the fermentation process, the organic medicinal mushrooms are carefully freeze-dried to ensure that all of the unique ingredients remain intact.
After this, the medicinal mushroom powder is encapsulated in organic, vegan tapioca capsules. Thus, this supplement is 100% organic both inside and out.
Living culture symbiotics with Kefir and Kombucha
The products from Living Nutrition are made of a combination of the two most superior fermentation processes: Kefir, made from fermented soy milk and Kombucha, made from fermented tea.
This form of fermentation is also known as "symbiotics". The following differences are found between symbiotics and single probiotics:
Are grown synthetically in laboratories
Naturally fermented from plants
Only isolated bacterial species
More than 100 balanced and evolved bacterial species
Attaches to maltodextrin, a form of sugar, to stabilize
Attaches to natural enzymes and peptides
Contains no digestive nutrients
Rich in nutrients for digestion
Prebiotic sugars or fiber added
Wide range of natural prebiotics
Many naked, exposed bacteria
A complete, living ecosystem in harmony with the digestive microbiome
Fermented Soy Milk in Living Nutrition
Living Nutriton uses fermented soy milk for the Kefir fermentation process. In fact, sprouted soybeans contain a host of exceptional properties, including a unique balance of nutrients such as amino acids and polyphenols.
After the fermentation process, these nutrients form compounds that provide wonderful support for the digestive process, the healing of tissues and for creating the optimal environment for a healthy microbiome in the intestines.
One daily dose (2 capsules) Organic Fermented Myco Blend contains:
- 300 mg organic Lion's Mane (Hericium erinaceus) fruiting body
- 300 mg organic Cordyceps (Militaris) fruiting body
- 200 mg organic Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) spores Organic fermented tapioca (capsule)
- Symbiotic fermentation from Kefir (fermented soy milk) and Kombucha (fermented tea)
Scientific research suggests that Lion's Mane (LINK TO BLOG) contains two important active ingredients:
Of which it has been shown that these ingredients both stimulate NGF (nerve growth factor) and BDNF (brain derived neurotrophic factor). This stimulates the creation of existing and new connections in the brain.
Research suggests that the two main components of Cordyceps (LINK TO BLOG) are polysaccharides/beta-D-glucans (LINK TO BLOG) and cordycepin. Cordycepin is known to be a nucleic acid that can help replenish the body's energy source. Also, cordycepin contains the following properties:
- Blood sugar lowering Cholesterol lowering
- Source of antioxidants
Reishi is known to contain as many as 400 different bioactive components, the best known of which are polysaccharides/ beta-D-glucans (LINK TO BLOG) and the triterpene ganoderic acids. Reishi Spores additionally contain up to three times more triterpenes than the Reishi fruit body. Ganoderic acids are known to contain the following properties:
- Inhibits histamine release
- Cholesterol lowering
- Blood pressure lowering
- Protector of liver function
- Inducer of genetically programmed cell death
- Cancer inhibitor
Ganoderic acids could also contribute to increased relaxation.
Fermentation health benefits
Research suggests that regular consumption of fermented foods may reduce the risk of certain cancers, it may support the immune system, it may protect the health of the gastrointestinal tract and urinary tract, and it may alleviate symptoms of Crohn's disease and irritable bowel syndrome.

Probiotics and prebiotics
The fermentation process significantly increases the level of nutrients which are, in this way, pre-digested into a bioavailable form.
New nutrients are thereby created together with a wide range of metabolic and digestive enzymes, which are also sometimes called probiotics or prebiotics.
