This is a good time to reflect on this year so far and see what your intentions were back in 2018 for this year. Are you making progress? Comment below of something you are proud about so far this year!
We have a kickass team of 8 today busting butt and harvesting pounds of cordyceps. During our testing with Bastyr over the last two years we found out that making a tea/infusion with fresh mushrooms were a tiny bit better for extracting cordycepin and adenosine. It wasn’t by much but it was still better! We are going to be trialing some alcohol extractions very soon which we are very excited to see how Mushroom Revival can make the best mushroom medicine on the market.... with SCIENCE! 🧬 🧪 🧫 🔬
Anyone want to come help us harvest a few thousand jars of cordyceps this week? Get hands on experience at the biggest cordyceps farm on this half of the globe! Take a tour, see our facility, make new friends and chill with our team here at Mushroom Revival. We will provide lunch, snacks, cordyceps tea and free mushroom revival products! We are located in South Deerfield, MA. Send us a DM! Tell your friends. MUSH LOVE!
We got some preliminary research back from Bastyr university spearheaded by the genius @earth_and_spirit. . . Best method for getting the most amount of cordycepin with a water extraction method for dry cordyceps is simmering for ~15 minutes. Fresh fruiting bodies did a tiny bit better but it’s more inaccessible. Mycelium was 8 times weaker. . . The best method for adenosine for water extraction methods is pouring hot water over dried cordyceps and closing the container and letting it sit for one hour. The second very close best is letting it soak in room temperature water for 14 hours. Mycelium was 44 times weaker. . Stay tuned for more information, tests, results, and data! Stay tuned, stay shroomed! . . Get your own dried cordyceps so you can make your own optimized extractions! Www.mushroom-revival.com
Reishi is called the 10,000 year mushroom or mushroom of immortality. It’s the number one ☝🏽 herb 🌿 🍄 in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Out of thousands of herbs and over thousands of years of practice this one was rated as having the most benefits 💪🏽 . It was so revered emperors 🤴🏼 in China 🇨🇳 used to adorn their 👘 robes and staffs 🧙🏼♂️with them.
We Sold Out Of Our Chaga at The Bangor Maine Flower Show. Mainers love their chaga! . . We have been talking to everyone about the sustainability and ethics of chaga. It is currently being over harvested in the USA and harvested before it has time to reproduce and spread it spores. It’s important to be mindful of chaga harvesting and only take what you need and just a tiny bit from each tree making sure to leave some if not all of it behind.
Come join us at the Bangor Flower Show until Sunday! . . Tonight I was on Television on ABC before judge Judy, talking about cordyceps, mushroom revival and medicinal mushrooms. . . Tomorrow I’m teaching a class here on medicinal mushrooms. . . Come one come all!
Cordyceps in an ancient underground lava river that turned into an ice cave in Iceland. This cave was covered in icicles, lichen, and bacteria that a team of Nasa scientists took an interest to after they discovered the same species could survive in space. We thought these icicles looked like primordia (baby mushrooms) of cordyceps so we had to snap a picture!
