So I watch Joe Rogan a few weeks ago, the guest on was Stamets. Really interesting. I loved his first trip report, but that was on another YouTube clip I just recalled. So anyway. He said to Rogan, that they makes there supplement with Lion mane, Reishi, Cordyceps, Chaga from mycelium. So I just want to know what the research are saying about that?
Also mushroom growing in the wild vs those that Stamets company are growing, they don't have the same Substrat, right? So are they as healthy and effective as the wild mushrooms? Have there been any research on that?
Yeah ASLO i watched this YouTube clip
that made me wanna ask you guys about it. Thanks.
Sorry about my poor English, hope you guys understand my questions and have some good answers.
Save your money and just eat mushrooms when you can IMO.
If it's just ground up fruit bodies or mycelium on grain in capsules, any effect is very likely placebo. If it's a concentrate or extract, some of these compounds aren't well studied and the effects of taking unnatural doses (which many extracts/concentrates are) may have negative impacts if take frequently, anything powerful enough to feel effects will impact your body's homeostasis and often cause the opposite of what you're taking it for eventually.
There's also the issue of product purity, the supplement industry is unregulated and you have zero idea what you're ingesting... the process used to grow/produce the supplement, heavy metal contamination, dosage/actual contents etc.
As far as your question, if you google "benefits mycelium vs fruiting bodies" there are lots of articles, most are written by people who sell supplements though... and come to the conclusion that their method is best.
