As mushroom farmers our expertise is the cultivation of mushrooms. Life Cykel takes great pride in producing the highest possible quality products. We recommend using https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.
As mushroom growers this is not our area of expertise. Any medical related questions are best answered by your local GP or physician.
Powders and liquid extracts are made using different processes.
Our powders are 10:1 which means that 10kg of mushroom material has been used to make 1kg of powder. The powder is made using a spray-drying process.
Our liquid extracts are 1:2 which means that 1kg of mushroom material is used to make 2L of liquid extract. The liquid extracts are made using a double extraction method (water and alcohol based). This double liquid extract ensures that both water soluble compounds (mainly polysaccharides like beta-glucans) and alcohol soluble compounds (mainly antioxidants such as triterpenoids) are present in the end product and bioavailable for the consumer.
We believe that the liquid extracts contain a range of full spectrum compounds acting synergistically together while powders are an isolate of single compounds.
For your own purpose, we advise you to test the difference – some people prefer the powders, others prefer the liquids.
Absolutely, feel free to use different extracts together. We encourage people to try different combinations of extracts to see what suits their needs best.
Our liquid extracts contain less than 1% of starch. This result tells us that we can separate most of the grain parts (mainly starch) from the mycelium with our patent pending extraction process.
As one serve is 2ml, there is 0.6ml of alcohol in one serve. This is the equivalent of drinking 12ml of a standard 5% alcohol beer or 5.2ml of a standard white wine restaurant glass size (150ml) of 11.5% of alcohol. This is a very small quantity of alcohol with no intoxicating effects. In Australia, one standard drink is equivalent to any drink containing 10 grams of alcohol.
1 serve of extract is equivalent to 0.6ml alcohol = 0.4g of alcohol = 4% of a standard drink
Alcohol is used to extract the alcohol soluble compounds (mainly antioxidants such as triterpenoids) to make them bioavailable for the consumer. Without using alcohol in our extracts, you would only have the water-soluble compounds.
Yes, our liquid extracts are vegetarian and vegan, containing no animal-based ingredients.
Our products are shelf stable.
Extracts used regularly can be stored at room temperature but if you plan to not use them regularly once opened, we recommend refrigerating the bottles to increase longevity.
Our Lion’s Mane Hericium corraloides and Turkey Tail Trametes versicolor extracts are made from strains growing natively in Australia.
Until we can get precise laboratory results on beta-glucans content, we have decided to not promote them on our extracts.
Beta glucan and terpenes laboratory testings are in their infancy and so we do not believe in the validity of these markers currently. While we know beta glucans and terpenes are important the science is unclear. The Australian native Lion’s Mane strain we are using does not contain erinacines and hericenones but instead contains similar compounds called corralocins.
This is a requirement from the current FSANZ standard regulations. We do not use artificial flavouring agents in our liquid extracts. Our liquid extracts are made from organic ingredients and wild harvested Kakadu Plum.
Our Liquid Extracts contain alcohol or vegetable glycerin, which are calorie dense. Therefore this will break a fast.
Our liquid extracts are 1:2 which means that 1kg of mushroom material is used to make 2L of liquid extract. The liquid extracts are made using a double extraction method (water and alcohol based). This double liquid extract ensures that both water soluble compounds (mainly polysaccharides like beta-glucans) and alcohol soluble compounds (mainly antioxidants such as triterpenoids) are present in the end product and bioavailable for the consumer. We are using both fruiting bodies, primordia and mycelium to ensure that the entire life cycle of the mushrooms full spectrum is in the end product.
Our liquid extracts are purified using pharmaceutical grade equipment which results in a clear purified colour. This differs from other companies extracts, which are made without purification steps, resulting in a more pigmented extract with a strong pungent flavour that is not palatable.
Our extract are made from 70% of purified water extract and 30% of alcohol extract purified extract combined together.
The native Australian Kakadu Plum infused within the mushrooms brings a sweet taste to the extracts while enhancing the effect of the mushrooms.
Here’s an example of a day in the life of a mushroom biohacker. Inspired by Dave Asprey’s personal use:
Our extract is made from a combination of fruiting bodies and mycelium. Our liquid extracts contain less than 1% of starch. This result proves that we can currently separate more than 99% of the grain parts (mainly starch) from the mycelium with our proprietary extraction process that has been lodged with the patent office.
We are using the Kakadu plum mostly as a natural flavouring. We are not making any claims on the vitamin C content of our extract. We do believe the formulation is amazing for optimising your day and we receive many positive reviews about this on a daily basis.
Half a dropper full is approximately 1ml, you can use this as a guide for the recommended serving size (2ml)
Our extraction processes and formulas are part of our company’s IP, which is within our patents lodged.
Our extracts are identified under the category of flavourings. The calories involved are very low.
Does each native ingredient come from an indigenous owned company?
All native ingredients have been sourced through our indigenous partnership with BUR’AN Australia, a social venture corporation with a defined strategy and purpose, focusing on unique long term sustainable socioeconomic indigenous initiatives building cultural bridges of understanding amongst local and global communities. Each sale contributes to their respective communities.
Our liquid extracts are made using fruiting bodies and mycelium as we believe both have properties that are beneficial in this bioavailable form. Our liquid extracts contain less than 0.5% of starch. This result proves that we can separate up to 99% of all starch coming from the substrate we are cultivating the mycelium on. This is made possible with our proprietary patented extraction process. With our great global team of scientists that include a biotechnology engineer, nanotechnologist, microbiologist, Mycologist and food scientist we are constantly refining and optimising our technology to ensure we are growing the best quality fruiting bodies & mycelium and using the best extraction processes.
Our cordyceps, chaga and reishi extracts are grown and engineered in the USA as we are not allowed to grow these strains in Australia under the current biosecurity laws.
All mushroom fruiting bodies used for our extracts are produced by us, we do not use Chinese based ingredients in our liquid extracts. Most of our fruiting bodies are grown on hardwood sawdust, cordyceps being an exception as it is grown on a substrate based on organic brown rice.
