Frequently Asked Questions
1. What are beta glucans and why are they important?
Beta glucans are a specific type of dietary fiber consisting of complex long-chain polysaccharide molecules. Beta glucans have been studied for their positive impact on the immune system. The beta glucans in mushrooms are considered to be highly effective in doing this. Their unique and complex side-branching chemical structures can bind or latch on to receptor sites on the cell membrane of the various types of cells that comprise our immune system (much like a key into a lock) and thus activate the immune system to be “battle ready.” Each mushroom species presents a variety of beta glucan structures that are able to lock on to different immune cell receptor sites. Thus, a blend of mushrooms provides a wide spectrum of immune system activation.
2. What are antioxidants and why do we need them?
Antioxidants are substances that prevent or mitigate damage by free- radicals produced from oxidative reactions. Free-radicals are generated even during normal metabolism and can attack or react with our tissues, cell membranes, and DNA. Antioxidants neutralize these free-radicals and keep them from becoming excessive or getting out of control. NRGmatrix includes an array of antioxidants from the organic ingredients and vitamins. L-ergothioneine, a highly stable and powerful antioxidant, is an important component of our medicinal mushroom blend.
3. Where do the mushrooms in NRGmatrix come from?
The medicinal mushrooms in NRGmatrix are 100% Certified Organic and are grown in San Marcos, California (near San Diego).
4. Why is it important that medicinal mushrooms are Certified Organic?
Mushrooms are the great decomposers and recyclers of our world and in the process of decomposing organic matter they also can take in toxins from their growing environment including heavy metals. This is why it is important that medicinal mushrooms are Certified Organic.
5. How are the medicinal mushrooms in NRGmatrix produced?
The medicinal mushrooms in NRGmatrix are produced and processed by M2 Ingredients in San Marcos, California. Ensuring that the products comply with the 100% Certified Organic claim begins with the utilization of organic oats as a substrate for growing the mushrooms. The oats are certified to a “100% Certified Organic” standard, “double-cleaned” at a certified mill and are stored on-site in an air-filtered and air-conditioned building. For further sanitation, the oats are rinsed with fresh water from a municipal water source prior to sterilization in an autoclave with steam and pressure.
The proprietary mushroom culture strains are stored utilizing liquid nitrogen (cryogenic) storage technologies to maintain the original vitality of the cultures in long-term storage for periodic renewal. The mushrooms are grown with proprietary equipment in a building equipped with High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtration utilizing aseptic, clean-room Solid State Fermentation (SSF) production methodologies. Processing (dehydration, milling, blending) and packaging are also done in a building equipped with HEPA air filtration using documented current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) compliant Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). No preservatives or fillers are added to the final product. M2 Ingredients is located immediately adjacent to a culinary mushroom production facility that produces 100% Certified Organic mushroom fruit bodies for fresh consumption. Growing the mushrooms indoors in an aseptic, controlled environment eliminates the possibility of inadvertent contamination with pesticide “drift” that may be a problem with producers less able to sterilize, sanitize and exclude pests and contaminants from their production systems.
6. Why are medicinal mushrooms unique?
Mushrooms are rich in powerful natural compounds that fuel and support the immune system including antioxidants, triterpenoids and heteropolysaccharides. It has been proposed that the similarity in DNA (approx 40% of the DNA in a mushroom is similar to the DNA in a mammal – compared with approximately 20% of a plant’s DNA) provides for an increased ability to communicate and interact with the cells of a mammal. Similar to mammals, mushrooms have an immune system which is constantly exposed to pathogenic organisms such as bacteria and viruses and the ingestion of mushrooms provides a transfer of immune support. Most nutritional products in use today, developed from fruits and vegetables, may have single or a limited number of compounds with unique bioactive properties and values, but none can compare with the diversity of bioactive enzymes, alpha and beta glucans, polyphenols, lectins, pectins, ribonucleases, proteins, peptides, vitamins and minerals provided by medicinal mushrooms.
7. Why is a strong immune system important to maintaining energy levels?
If our immune system is not efficient or effective at fighting off infectious agents such as pathogenic bacteria and viruses, a great deal of metabolic energy can be wasted dealing with low-level infections and chronic inflammation. Additionally, since more than 90% of our immune function is in our gastro-intestinal tract, a weak immune system may result in poor digestion and poor uptake and utilization of nutrients which can negatively impact our energy levels.
8. Why are some types of mushrooms poisonous?
Poisonous mushrooms contain a variety of toxins that can adversely affect our metabolism. While most cases of mushroom poisoning are not fatal, certain species can be deadly if ingested. Most cases of mushroom poisonings are a result of misidentification of the mushroom species. The medicinal mushrooms in NRGmatrix are produced by trained mushroom scientists and have been safely and effectively used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and other natural healing modalities for thousands of years.
9. Is NRGmatrix gluten-free?
Yes. It is gluten-free and vegan.
10. Are your products non-GMO?
Yes. The product contains no material from Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).
11. What supplies the “Energy” in NRGmatrix?
The feeling of increased energy after consuming NRGmatrix is a result of several factors. Mate and guarana extracts provide a natural source of energy. B-complex vitamins added to the blend and also contained naturally in the mushrooms function to support an active metabolism. Organic, vegan vitamin D2 provided by the mushrooms also supports numerous metabolic functions. Vitamin C and the organic botanical extracts of tumeric and ginseng provide antioxidants that help to streamline cellular energy production. Cordyceps mushroom is known for its ability to provide increased energy over a long period of time through increased respiration and ATP production. Finally, the 8 species of medicinal mushrooms in the blend provide an array of bioactive compounds that support immune health, digestive health, circulation, respiration, detoxification and elimination, and cellular energy production.
The product contains no added sugar so the energy is not from a “sugar rush” as is often the case with other sugar-laden energy products. No added sugars means no “sugar crash.”
