About the company
Medicinal Mushroom Supplements
Categories: Supplements & Homeopathics
Started in 1994, Mushroom Science was originally named "JHS Natural Products" after the three founders, John Seleen, a mushroom grower, He Xianguo, a natural products chemist and Steven Bailey, a naturopathic doctor.
The company was started with the sole purpose of introducing a new medicinal mushroom supplement to American health care practitioners. Called "PSK" or "Krestin" in Japan, and extracted from the medicinal mushroom Coriolus versicolor, PSK was the top selling immune support supplement in the world, but had yet to be introduced to the U.S.
John Seleen, the primary founder, was first introduced to the research on Coriolus versicolor extracts while at a mushroom biology conference in China in 1989. He was impressed by the extensive research presented by Dr. Yang, the inventor of another Coriolus extract, Coriolus PSP. Dr. Yang presented his original research on the immune health benefits of Coriolus PSP, and also covered many of the studies done on the Japanese product, PSK.
The quantity and quality of the research on the immune health benefits of Coriolus extracts was impresive, including more than 500 animal studies and dozens of human clinical trials, all of which pointed to the extraordinary potential these extracts had to improve the health care options available to American practitioners.
A true pioneer in the mushroom supplement industry, Mushroom Science was the first company in North America to offer Coriolus versicolor mushroom extracts matching the quality and content of the PSK used in the world-renowned Japanese research.
Initially, Mushroom Science manufactured and distributed medicinal mushroom supplements exclusively to health care practitioners, but in 2003, the company expanded to offer their high quality mushroom supplements directly to consumers.
The company has grown and evolved since since 1994. Today Mushroom Science provides many other mushrooms extracts as part of their product line, including Reishi, Chaga, Maitake, Cordyceps and others.
MushroomScience is the only U.S. Company offering hot water extracted mushroom supplements that match the potency and quality of the preparations used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as the extracts used and studied in the published research.
