Yes! Functional mushrooms have been used for over 5,000 years as a cornerstone of many medicinal treatments and medical systems. Don’t worry –– none of the mushrooms in our blends are psychoactive or illegal.
Extraction is a method used to pull beneficial compounds, vitamins, and minerals from a raw material –– in our case, functional mushrooms. All of our mushrooms are extracted using single or dual solvent extraction methods, with water as our main solvent. Proper extraction allows us to ensure accurate dosing and effectiveness in all of our products, so you can bring the full power of functional mushrooms into your daily routine.
Yes! Spore products are vegetarian and vegan-friendly, containing no animal-based ingredients.
Yes, Spore products are gluten-free and safe for those with gluten allergies. We strive to not only adhere to all FDA "Gluten Free" labeling guidelines and standards, but to go above the minimum requirements. Every production batch is tested at a 10ppm gluten threshold level, well below the current FDA guidelines of less than 20ppm gluten for gluten-free product labeling. In addition, we test every batch that’s received and will reject it if any gluten-grain contamination is found.

Yes, Spore capsules and functional mushrooms are suitable for both Paleo and Ketogenic diets.
Our capsules are unflavored, but you may notice a tinge of pleasant earthiness when you take them.
Functional mushrooms are a subset of the mushroom family that contain a rich, potent nutrient profile. These mushrooms are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals and have been used for generations as elixirs to improve overall health. They also provide beneficial amino acids/proteins and compounds like triterpenes (Turkey Tail & Reishi), neurotrophic factors (Lion's Mane), and cordycepin (from Cordyceps) –– all of which contribute to improved mental health, immunity, and performance.
Nootropics are natural ingredients that have beneficial effects on brain function, including boosting memory, motivation, alertness, improving general cognitive ability and creativity, and may reduce age-related decline in brain function.
There is no specific guidance on the best time of day to consume Spore supplements. Each person processes and metabolizes the ingredients differently. However, when you’re taking a blend for a specific purpose, you should adhere to the directions on the product. For example, our mushroom blends with Cordyceps are known to increase energy and would be best taken in the morning. Other Spore blends have a more calming effect and would be best taken in the evening. For further guidance, please consult your health practitioner.
The honest answer is: it depends. The processing and metabolization rate of functional mushrooms varies from person to person. However, a Spore blend focused on energy or relaxation can typically be noticed quickly, while a blend focused on immunity offers ongoing "behind the scenes" benefits by protecting and defending your immune system.
Yes, none of our mushrooms are known to produce mycotoxins like black mold and other “imperfect” fungi.
A common misconception is that eating mushrooms facilitates fungal overgrowth in the body, but has been proven false. Not only are mushrooms very low in the sugars that promote yeast growth, but they also strengthen the body's immune response. If you're currently experiencing yeast overgrowth you should consult a healthcare professional about your specific situation.
Yes. Each mushroom species has unique nutritional benefits and you can multiply the benefits by combining more than one species. Like all dietary supplements, check with your health care provider for any questions related to diet.
