TINCTURES

Mushrooms extracted into a liquid

Tinctures are alcohol- or glycerin-based liquid extracts. Their strength depends on the ratio of mushroom fruiting bodies (or herbs) to the liquid. Some tinctures are “dual-extracted,” meaning both alcohol and hot water are used to unlock different beneficial compounds. Alcohol helps preserve the tincture and increase the absorption rate of the active ingredients in mushrooms, including beta-glucans. In glycerin-based tinctures (glycerites), the alcohol is evaporated, then glycerin is added.

CAPSULES

Capsules contain either liquid or powdered extracts of functional mushrooms. (Powdered extracts start as a liquid and are then dried and ground.)

Powders are a type of mushroom extract. They are not the same as dried, ground mushrooms.
