Why We Started:
A Note From the Founder, Nicola
It usually takes experiencing something first hand to truly make a huge life change, like questioning everything you are eating and drinking everyday. For me, it was finding out that I had coeliac disease that made me truly appreciate the saying: you are what you eat. Having to say goodbye to gluten, well it still irks me some days…usually around breakfast time when I see others eating their vegemite sourdough.
Around the same time I was having to learn all about my new diet, I stumbled across some intriguing looking mushrooms in my children’s treehouse (that one time I went up there…it counts!) that led me to research, and become a little obsessed with, medicinal mushrooms and all of the amazing life changing benefits they have to offer.
Medicinal mushrooms have helped me to combat the conditions and side effects of living with an auto-immune disease. For me, after about a month of taking Lion’s Mane, the brain fog lifted. To regain mental clarity, focus and short term memory when I was chasing 3 small children around was a game changer. Also, Reishi really helped balance my hormones after having those kids and regrowing all the hair that I lost afterwards. I could keep going with more examples but I’ll stop myself here!
So how did I go from a medicinal mushroom loving consumer to starting my own brand? After growing these mushrooms myself I learnt how labour intensive they are to cultivate and how finding the balance between nature and science requires such precision. I also learnt the difference between extracts and full spectrum powders and wanted to create a product not just for myself, but other people too, that delivers the benefits of medicinal mushrooms most effectively.
To create a truly effective product though I knew I needed to outsource to the experts. Along with the advice from the best nutritional consultants in this field, I have personally tried, tested and analysed various different mushroom supplements and have found the best and most effective on the market. I have paired this with quality, natural vitamins that enhance the efficacy of these mushrooms increasing their impact on you.

We’ve had our refillable jars custom made. We dug deeper into our pockets to use Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) material because we feel it really will make a difference. This is material that has already been used and thrown out, then recycled and made into these jars and able to be recycled again. They are extremely light weight, much lighter than glass, cutting on carbon emissions during freight. They are durable and refillable, so no single use plastics here!
