If an extract is 15:1, it means 15g of the raw material is concentrated into 1g of extract.

    Some supplement companies label their supplements with the ‘equivalent’ mg, rather than the actual mg in the product.

    You may see products labelled as containing 2,000mg per serving. Which means its actually 200mg of a 10:1 extract.


    Most tinctures contain alcohol some are even more than 20%. Leaving alcohol in the product is cheaper to produce but is not a pure. All Cognihax products are alcohol free.


    When compared to powder extracts, the liquid based extracts are a less processed option that retains all the beneficial compounds present in the mushroom. It is usually recommended to use only a small quantity, such as a few milliliters or droppers full. The extract can be easily mixed with water or consumed directly by dripping it into the mouth.

What are functional mushrooms

Functional mushrooms, like Lion Mane, Chaga and Reishi, are fungi celebrated for their potential health benefits. Rich in bioactive compounds, they offer immune support, antioxidant properties, and may act as adaptogens, promoting overall well-being. Consumed as teas, supplements, or in recipes, these mushrooms have a history deeply rooted in traditional medicine.

What are adaptogens

Adaptogens are natural substances, often herbs or mushrooms, that help the body adapt to stress and maintain balance. They modulate the stress response, supporting overall well-being by enhancing resilience, reducing fatigue, and promoting homeostasis. Popular adaptogens include Rhodiola, Ashwagandha, and Ginseng, prized for their holistic health benefits.

Are functional mushrooms safe

Functional mushrooms are generally considered safe for most people when consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet. However, individual responses can vary, and some people may be sensitive or allergic to certain mushrooms. It's crucial to source mushrooms from reputable suppliers to ensure they are free from contaminants. Additionally, pregnant or breastfeeding individuals and those with specific health conditions or taking medications should consult with a healthcare professional before incorporating functional mushrooms into their routine. Always start with small amounts to observe individual reactions.

Liquid droppers vs tablets

The choice between liquid supplements and capsules depends on various factors, including personal preferences, absorption rates, and the specific nutrients in question. Both forms have their advantages and disadvantages. Here are some considerations for why someone might prefer liquid supplements over capsules:

  1. Faster Absorption: Liquid supplements are often absorbed more quickly by the body compared to capsules. This is because the digestive system doesn't need to break down a capsule before the nutrients are released. The liquid form may be particularly beneficial for individuals with digestive issues or conditions that affect nutrient absorption.
  2. Ease of Swallowing: Some people find it easier to swallow liquid supplements, especially for those who have difficulty swallowing pills or capsules. This can be particularly important for certain populations, such as children or the elderly.
  3. Customizable Dosages: Liquid supplements may offer more flexibility in adjusting dosage levels. It's often easier to measure and customize the amount of liquid taken, which can be useful for individuals who need specific dosages or have dietary restrictions.
  4. Bioavailability: Liquid supplements may have higher bioavailability, meaning a greater percentage of the nutrients are absorbed by the body. This can be attributed to the fact that liquid forms don't require the same degree of digestion as capsules.
  5. Variety of Nutrients: Some nutrients are more stable and effective in liquid form. For example, certain vitamins and minerals may be better preserved in liquid solutions than in capsule form, especially when exposed to light and air.

Will I feel 'spaced-out'or 'trippy'?

Functional mushrooms, like Chaga or Reishi, are not known for causing hallucinogenic or "trippy" effects. These mushrooms typically contain low levels of psychoactive compounds, if any. However, it's important to differentiate functional mushrooms from psychoactive mushrooms, such as certain species of Psilocybe, which do contain hallucinogenic compounds like psilocybin. Functional mushrooms are generally safe for consumption and are valued for their potential health benefits without causing hallucinations or altered states of consciousness. Always ensure that you correctly identify any mushrooms you intend to consume and source them from reliable suppliers.
