As part of our sponsorship for the BAcC Extraordinary Meridians Conference, we will be showcasing our range of mushroom products during the conference. The weekend will feature a lecture on ‘A TCM Perspective on Mushroom Nutrition for Neuodegenertive Conditions’ taught by Zuzana Vančuříková and Karel Šimonovský. We have designed a free infographic to get you in the mood for mushrooms!

Culinary Mushrooms

90% of the mushrooms we eat are white button mushrooms – but why not try something new? The Chinese have been using mushrooms such as Shiitake (Dong Gu) and Wood Ear (Mu Er) in their cooking for centuries for not only the taste but for the medicinal properties. They work great in traditional Chinese dishes, soups and stir-fries.

Just like all of our herbs, our culinary herbs are non-GMO and grown without sulphur, pesticides and herbicides so you can rest assured that you are getting the best for your health.

Phoenix Nutrition

Ling Zhi (Reishi Mushroom) has been favoured in TCM for its calming and cooling properties. These mushrooms are anti-inflammatory and tied to longevity, better immune function and mental clarity, earning them the nickname King of Mushrooms. It is used in Chinese medicine for its sedative, wisdom-enhancing, memory-promoting and stress-relieving effects.

Cordyceps is a fungus that traditionally lives on certain caterpillars in the high mountain regions of China. Cordyceps are extremely popular in the East, as they are believed to boost athletic performance, help with ageing and help fight inflammation.

We offer a range of mushroom products:
