Mushroom Gummies: Things You Need to Know Before Buying
Mushroom gummies are one of the latest additions to the mushroom supplement market. These delicious edibles can provide a quick and reliable way to reap the nutritional benefits of functional mushrooms.
If you're considering taking a gummy blend to get your daily dose of mushrooms, this article will answer the most frequently asked questions about them to help you make the right choice.
What is a Mushroom Gummy?
Many people may be more familiar with mushroom powders and capsules, which are the most popular forms of mushroom supplements; however, mushroom gummies are quickly becoming a new trend and a highly convenient way to get your recommended daily dose of mushrooms.
These supplements combine mushroom extracts containing unique active metabolites with other ingredients (such as pectin and organic sugar) to form a sweet chewable treat. Mushroom gummies come in various flavors and can provide several health benefits attributed to functional mushrooms when consumed daily.‡
Om Mushroom Superfood Lion’s Mane mushroom gummies differ from other brands in that we use whole mushroom powder, which includes the mycelium and the fruiting body, to make our entire line of supplements, allowing you to reap their full benefits.‡
Why Are Fruiting Body and Mycelium Important to Gummies?
The fruiting body (the above-ground part of the mushroom) and the mycelium (the root-like part of the mushroom) both contain active compounds with unique properties. Some compounds are exclusive to either the fruiting body or the mycelium, so getting the full benefit will require the consumption of both parts.‡
While there is some market debate about which part of a mushroom is more valuable, believing that either the fruiting body or the mycelium is more valuable across all mushroom species is incorrect.
Om Mushroom supplements contain both mycelium and fruiting bodies to ensure our customers get the benefits of the whole mushroom, not just the cap and stalk. Because of this process, our supplements contain all the beneficial bioactive compounds found in the complete mushroom life cycle.
What Are the Benefits of Mushroom Gummies?
Mushrooms have been used medicinally for thousands of years in functional medicine, and each single species variety contains unique bioactive compounds that are known to help boost energy, improve immune system function, and even help you get a better night’s sleep.‡
