The healing powers of mushrooms have been revered for thousands of years in ancient cultures such as those of Tibet, China and India. And those time-honoured healing powers are more needed than ever.

Lucky for us, our ability to harness the healing potential found in the diverse world of mushrooms has flourished through modern advancements. And that is seriously good news for our well being of both body and mind. Here’s how:

The award-winning formulation PURICA Immune 7 has a proven track record as an immune optimizer and modulator featuring six organic medicinal mushrooms and nutricol, a powerful blend of natural antioxidants. PURICA Complete 360 formulation is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and is compromised of eight medicinal mushrooms and the organic ayurvedic herb ashwagandha, it’s our way of bringing a time honoured formula, for immune support, stress relief and overall health, to you.

Modern medicine has used these mushrooms and other fungi to develop treatments for a variety of conditions. Similarly, PURICA has applied scientific methodology to liberate the full spectrum of healing intelligence within; believing as the ancients did, that nature makes no mistake, and each element is important to the overall harmony of our well-being.

The result is a safe, powerful and balanced range of products to help with everything from chronic stress to modulating the immune system, improving memory, or the many ways these adaptive intelligences meet you where you are at. Now you know you’re being fully supported by nature, and backed by science.

Now here is where we dive deeper into the science to make these and other mushrooms even more effective, PURICA incorporates its four advantages into everything it produces. The four differentiators are:

  1. Full spectrum formulation
  2. Therapeutic grade ingredients
  3. Highest quality
  4. Easily-absorbed

Full spectrum production means that PURICA uses the “entire mushroom” that grows over the course of its life cycle. By using the mycelia, fruit bodies, spores and extracellular compounds, PURICA maximizes the balancing benefits of its medicinal mushrooms as nature intended.

Great care is taken in all stages of the growing, harvesting and processing of every mushroom used in PURICA products. These processes preserve all of the active ingredients, thereby delivering a consistent therapeutic grade product. Also, because they are grown on a certified organic plant base with trace minerals, there is the highest degree of quality control, with each PURICA mushroom product qualifying as a healing superfood.

The fourth major differentiator — and arguably the signature PURICA advantage behind its North American-grown mushrooms — is the easy absorption that is ensured through a process known as micronization. This is the process by which large particles are reduced into fine, soluble particles, measured in micrometres and easy for the body to absorb to harness the full benefits they hold.

These four PURICA advantages are applied to each and every mushroom produced, including latest innovation – PURICA Zensations – A line of mushroom cacao blends, making them fun and easy to incorporate their nourishing properties into your lifestyle. (And who doesn’t love hot chocolate?)

Available in six different blends, PURICA Zensations is easily added to enhance your favourite drink, or might become your new favourite on its own. Whether taken like a shot of espresso, simply mixed in hot water, frothed up, paired down, or any of the other creative ways you can think of to use this nourishing medicinal blend — It’s a healthy excuse to savour a hot chocolate, with every serving having at least 1400-1600mg of therapeutic mushrooms.
