How Harvest Naturals Mushroom Extracts are Made?
Our extracts are made from a dual extraction process. The first step is hot water extraction. This is the most common and the least expensive and where many companies stop. When you find "cheap" mushroom supplements, they are either simply dried powders or are water extracted only. To get the full benefit of medicinal mushrooms, the second (and much more costly) alcohol extraction step is required.
Ethanol (or sometimes methanol) extraction isolates the water-insoluble components. The alcohol extraction process is in general used as a second step after hot-water extraction. Also since alcohol alone will not break down chitin effectively, heat must be added. Without this second step of alcohol extraction, many of the additional beneficial ingredients simply cannot be extracted.
