What Is The Fruiting Body? Is It Different From Mycelium?
What you would visually recognize as a mushroom. It’s fleshy and contains spores.
Usually grows above ground or directly on the surface of its host – like a tree or old log.
Made up of a stem, cap, and gills. It’s what you might eat in a culinary dish.
The main body and feeding membrane of a mushroom.
It grows underground or within the host plant.
Think of it like the ‘roots’ of the mushroom.

I’m Confused -- What’s The Difference Between The Raw Mushroom, The Powder And The Powder Extract?
Here’s a simplified summary of each:
Raw mushroom = the whole mushroom.
Mushroom powder = dried mushrooms -- ground into powder. Goes into giant pressure cookers - that pre-digest the cell walls.
Mushroom powder extract = dried mushrooms -- ground into powder. The powder is cooked with water/alcohol, so that the medicinal compounds can be extracted. A spray dryer removes the liquid - leaving you with a fully-active powder.
Antioxi’s Mushroom products are powder extracts. Here’s why that’s beneficial to you.
The long-term cooking process allows for…
1. Better control over the mushroom’s medicinal properties that remain in the final product. So your quick intake can go a long way. And improve your health.
2. Beta D Glucans can be up to 15 times more concentrated in powder extracts - compared to powders.
So you can benefit from more natural immune-boosters.
3. Easier access for your body to the medicinal goodness. And easier absorption too.
Should I Get The Mushroom Blend Capsules Or The Powder? Which Is Better?
They’re both essentially the same. Only their forms are different.
The powder = mushroom powder extract.
The capsules = mushroom powder extract – in capsule form.
So really, it comes down to your personal preference.
Don’t mind taking tablets with a good ol’ glass of water? → By all means, get the capsules.
Prefer to mix powders in your smoothies, tea, coffee etc? → Then go for the powdered version.
Either way – you’ll enjoy the same medicinal benefits!
How Are The Nutrients Extracted From Mushrooms?
Simply put -- during the extraction process, the mushroom’s nutrients are dissolved as much as possible.
This can be done with...
-Both (Double Extraction)
Antioxi’s mushroom products have a water-based extraction, besides Lion's mane which benefits from a dual extraction. This helps dissolve the most Beta-Glucans – which is the ingredient that helps balance your immune system & maintaining and promoting beneficial components.
Where are the Mushrooms sourced from?
We’re open about our mushrooms being sourced from China. In fact, in China mushroom usage has a rich history. Going on a 1000 years!

And remember: all products have been tested for elements such as heavy metals. No toxins here.
If you ask, we’re happy to send the lab reports.
