Embarking on a journey deeply rooted in this rich tradition, Trilogy Fungi emerges as a beacon of modern exploration, dedicated to unlocking the transformative potential of these age-old remedies.

Understanding mushroom supplements

When it comes to medicinal mushroom supplements, you’ll often hear the terms fruiting body and mycelium. Fruiting body refers to the stem, cap and gills of the mushroom that visibly grows above ground. The term mycelium refers to the root-like system of the organism that grows below ground. In today's supplement world many people are asking the questions:

Should I search for Mycelium based products?
Should I search for Fruiting Body based products?
What's the difference?

Mycelium can be easier to grow but is often grown on grain which leads to potentially unwanted fillers in the final product. This is because the mycelium cant be removed from its solid substrate once it's grown. In the wild, mushrooms grow on substrates such as trees and soil, developing vital molecules for various purposes. The substrate that the mushrooms are grown on is very important in providing all of the beneficial compounds that are used for mushroom supplements. At Trilogy Fungi, we prioritize using the fruiting body grown on its natural substrate to honor their traditional use and to guarantee full spectrum benefits.

Extraction Process:
Our full spectrum extraction method ensures a full array of benefits. Water extraction breaks down chitin for beta-glucans, while alcohol extraction captures non-water-soluble compounds like terpenoids.

Nutrients in Mushrooms:


Terpenoids are among the most potent nutraceuticals in mushrooms with at least 5 monoterpenes, 70 sesquiterpenes, 44 diterpenes, and 166 triterpenes having been discovered and analyzed for their many profound beneficial properties.
