What Sets Ancient Apothecary Mushrooms Apart? Live Fermentation, Essential Oils Infusion, Organic Herbs & Spices, and a delivery system of Warming Botanicals and Digestive Bitters.
Ancient Apothecary Fermented Mushrooms are powered by fermentation—our own proprietary, patent-pending, dual-stage, live fermentation process.
Fermentation is an ancient process used to break down food into more absorbable components. During the fermentation process, microorganisms use aerobic and anaerobic metabolism to convert food compounds into powerful metabolites.
Here are some key benefits of fermentation:
Each Ancient Apothecary Mushroom formula is infused with Organic Essential Oils and CO2 extracts to provide lipo-soluble phytonutrients with powerful antioxidant properties.
Essential oils are often referred to as the “life blood and immune system” of plants and trees. They are the concentrated oils of herbs, plants and trees—approximately 50 times more potent than the plants they come from!
For example, it takes approximately 3,000 lemons to make one kilo of lemon essential oil, while one 15mL bottom of lemon essential oil takes about 75 lemons! To go deeper, there are nearly 300 drops in a 15mL bottle, so 1 drop of lemon essential oil is made by using ¼ of a whole lemon!
Likewise, 150 pounds of lavender is necessary for just one pound of pure lavender essential oil, while one 15mL bottle of lavender oil requires 27 square feet of lavender plants. With approximately 300 drops of lavender oil in a 15mL bottle, one drop equals nearly .09 square feet of lavender plants.
For peppermint oil, one 15mL bottle requires approximately one pound of peppermint plants, and it takes 5,000 tons of rose petals to get one gallon of rose oil.
Of course, these are approximations, but you get the picture: there’s a whole lot of beneficial plant life in essential oils.
These precious oils can be distilled or extracted using CO2 and bottled, and when steam distilled, essential oils keep the “frequency” that they had when they resided in the plant.
Additionally, essential oils provide lipo-soluble fractions of plants. Since plants contain both water- and fat- soluble active compounds, we believe it important to consume a full spectrum of beneficial compounds. Fats and oils are required for the effective delivery of key antioxidant compounds.
Therefore, essential oils infused into herbal formulas can serve as a delivery system for these powerful botanicals.
Here’s the bottom line: Essential oils are some of Nature’s wonders, in that they serve to bring the body back into balance, thereby supporting overall health. In fact, they are extremely potent and can provide support for every bodily system.†
That’s why you’ll find essential oils in each and every Ancient Apothecary Fermented Mushrooms.
It’s no secret that in conventionally grown foods, including mushrooms and herbs, farmers use a variety of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides synthetic fertilizers and many other \"processing agents' which often remain in and on the food or herbs. Even washing these foods or herbs can’t get many of these off the produce.
Why? Because nearly 20 percent of the 17,000 (or more) pesticides in use today are known as systemic pesticides—those which reside inside the plant via its root system and have permeated the plant. That’s means they’re everywhere within the plants themselves and can’t be washed off.
Many studies and reports point to the adverse health effects of these chemicals in and on our food, which is why many choose to go organic. That reason alone is enough to make going organic is all the rage these days.
But another important benefit of organic food, including mushrooms and herbs, is that, because they’re grown organically, these plants are able to produce their own natural defenses against pests.
As a result, these plants are more resilient and defense-supporting by nature (literally) and have some of the very compounds and natural defenses that we can and often should include in our diet. For example, the resilient antioxidants and beneficial compounds found in plants are beneficial and even necessary for our bodies so that we can keep our own defenses strong.†
That’s why you’ll find these health-supporting organic mushrooms and herbs in each and every Ancient Apothecary Fermented Mushrooms.
PLUS, each Ancient Apothecary Mushroom formula contains an Organic Fermented Warming Botanical Blend of black pepper, ginger, long pepper and sprouted cumin to support healthy digestion, bioavailability of nutrients, healthy circulation, metabolism and overall energy.†
In Ayurveda, black pepper, long pepper and ginger are used for supporting healthy digestion, circulation, nutrient assimilation and metabolism.† It is tied to the Sanskrit word trikatu, meaning three spices or three peppers. Trikatu is an Ayurvedic blend of the fruits of black pepper, long pepper and the rhizomes of ginger.
Each Ancient Apothecary Fermented Mushroom formula also contains an Organic Fermented Bitter Botanical Blend of milk thistle, dandelion and peppermint to support healthy digestion and liver function as well as bioavailability of nutrients.†
Bitter botanicals or \"bitters\" are regarded for their ability to support healthy liver function, while also supporting healthy digestion and nutrient absorption.† Additionally, bitters can help support nervous system health and a healthy immune system as well as promoting healthy energy levels.†
By combining the benefits of organic fermented botanicals, whole organic herbs and spices, hot water herbal extracts and lipo-soluble fractions, Ancient Apothecary Fermented Herbal formulas provide a full-spectrum infusion of the best that Nature has to offer!
