Mushrooms Throughout Time
Neither fruit nor vegetable, mushrooms are their own species.
Humans have consumed and used mushrooms for more than just their nutritional value for centuries.
3300 B.C Otzi The Iceman
Two types of mushrooms were found in this ancient explorer’s bag. One for starting fires in the icy, cold climates of the Italian and Austrain mountains, the other to inhibit bacterial growth.

Supplementing Functional Mushrooms
We say reputable because mushrooms have powerful benefits, however only when used correctly. If the company you choose to use is not producing high-quality products or is not transparent with their ingredients, you may not enjoy your results. For this reason, at Silo Wellness we are 100% transparent and only use high-quality ingredients that you can trust. Our process is proven to deliver the maximum benefits of our mushrooms.
Functional Mushrooms In Tincture Format
While at first you may think the best way to consume functional mushrooms is to eat them, actually the easiest, simplest way is to supplement in a tincture format. Beyond the fact they are often hard to find fresh, tinctures offer you the ability to add them into your food as you please. From morning coffee to meals, smoothies, and more.
How We Select Our Functional Mushrooms
Some of our favorite types include Turkey Tail, Lion’s Mane, Chaga, Cordyceps, and Reishi.

The Silo Wellness Extraction Process
We have developed our triple extraction process to unlock each mushroom’s high-quality bioavailability.
A very in depth method, it takes 100 days to complete.
This step makes the good stuff like polysaccharides, triterpenoids, and alkalis more accessible.
To further draw out the good stuff, we use hot water because polysaccharides are water soluble.
The final step takes 90 days and is used to release the nonpolar triterpenoids from the mushroom.
