Top 5 Benefits of Mushroom Extracts by Forest Mana

If you're wondering what is all the hype about when it comes to mushroom extract powders, look no further! After a strong decade of fascinating scientific discovery and receiving feedback from our lovely customers, we've developed the perfect extract formulae for a modern lifestyle.

Here are our top 5 benefits of daily mushroom consumption in extract form!


1. Easy on the Belly and Hard on Results

The supplement industry can't offer anything easier on the belly and gut health than premium mushroom extract powders. Almost all supplements tailored to the needs of high-performance athletes have substances which may compromise gut health - something that the latest research in nutrition sciences to be one of the most important factors in overall longevity and athletic performance.
For example, our cordyceps mushroom extract powder, a favourite among athletes, has shown great results in increasing overall energy levels, especially assisting in the reduction of the negative effects of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS). DOMS is experienced by power athletes and is one of the most expected stages of recovery. Recovery is arguably the most important part of any high level physical conditioning routine, which is why it is nice to have mushroom extracts as great new age supplements that are easy on the belly and hard on achieving great results.

2. Functional Nutrition at its best!

Mushroom extracts are most known for their role in what is called functional nutrition. Functional nutrition means structuring your daily food and beverage intake to suit the needs of a particular function, as a means to achieve optimal results.
One of the founders of Forest Mana has experienced this by himself! By switching from a purely carb load diet before a long-distance running event, he implemented Cordyceps and Lion's Mane mushroom extract powders into his diet, and doubled down on the consumed amounts a day before the race. He used Cordyceps to boost his energy levels and then Lion's Mane to maintain his focus and the neurological health needed for an explosive start, a stable pace and a strong finish.
"By not using the carb load diet before the Lincoln 10k race and loading myself up with Lion's Mane and Cordyceps mushroom extract powders, I've avoided a problem that has been plaguing me during the previous races - heaviness in the gut, brain fog and the insulin shock that is felt by most endurance athletes. I've crushed my PB and didn't have to follow a strict diet to manage my post-race insulin levels, which would typically follow a carb load diet."
For endurance athletes, it is very important to max out on glycogen stores before any race, but everyone's bodies are different. This is why it is important to consider an alternative diet, before falling into the pleasurable carb load.

3. Perfect for vegan and other plant-based diets!
