What makes these mushrooms so magnificent?
Our mushroom extract powder (Magnificent Mushrooms), used to create this delicious drink, is standardized to >25% beta-glucans, complex compounds found in mushrooms that boost immune support. If you don't speak mushroom, you should know this makes our Magnificent Mushrooms the most potent blend on the market - a claim we proudly stand by. And that means, with Magnificent Mushrooms Hot Chocolate, you get all that goodness with a delicious taste!
We extract our mushrooms to be highly potent and bioavailable. 300mg of our Magnificent Mushrooms is equivalent to over 2000mg of the unextracted mushrooms you find in many other products. Let’s break that down. Take Reishi, for example, which is a 16:1 extraction, meaning that every gram of Reishi in our mix is equivalent to 16 grams of unextracted Reishi 🤯 Extracting our mushrooms also makes them more bioavailable—meaning, it allows your body to actually be able to utilize all of its goodness.
This Mushroom Hot Chocolate blend brings enhanced immunity, energy, focus, beauty, and balance to your daily routine. Whether you’re kickstarting your mornings or infusing your afternoons with energy, our Mushroom Hot Chocolate is a treat for your taste buds and a boon for your health. It’s meticulously crafted, promising you a full blast of pure, potent goodness, and you can rest assured you’re getting all your daily mushroom goodness in one delicious cup.
So go on, elevate your health routine and satisfy your sweet tooth with our Mushroom Hot Chocolate blend. After all, why settle for less when you can enjoy the most potent blend of health, vitality, and deliciousness?
Small, and mighty 💪 🍄
Unlike other mushroom powders, our powder is free of fillers, grains, or other things you’d rather not put in your precious vessel. This means more bang-for-your-half-teaspoon. And it means a smaller bag, which means a smaller environmental footprint. Yay!
On that note, Magnificent Mushrooms Hot Chocolate is...
- Certified organic & fair trade
Extracted for bioavailability and potency
- 100% fruiting bodies
Super potent with >25% beta-glucans

Beta-huh? A glossary of potentially confusing mushroom terms:
🍄 Extracted: In addition to condensed strength, extraction allows your body to actually utilize the important properties of these wonderful mushrooms. If you grind up a whole mushroom (as, cough cough, many companies do) and toss it in a bag, you’re not accounting for... chitin. This pesky compound is found in the cell walls of mushrooms. Chitin is hard and indigestible and effectively locks up all the beneficial compounds we want, so when you extract the mushrooms, you can unlock all its prized properties. Huzzah!
🍄 Dual extracted: Some mushrooms in this blend benefit from dual extraction, meaning they are extracted in both water, which extracts beta-glucans, and in alcohol, which extracts things like adaptogenic triterpenoids. Instead of only extracting mushrooms in water, dual extraction makes sure we get all the beneficial compounds (because #fomo).
🍄 Beta-Glucans: Beta-glucans are complex compounds that have profound immunomodulating properties. While all mushrooms have their individual chemistry—cordyceps has cordicepin, reishi has triterpenoids, etc.—beta-glucans are in all medicinal mushrooms and are what account for the majority of mushrooms' impact on our immune system.
🍄 Fruiting bodies: Fruiting bodies is another name for mushrooms. What we harvest, what we eat, what we think of as mushrooms—this is the fruiting body. Mycelium on the other hand is the invisible below-ground network of fungal threads that produce these fruiting bodies. The fruiting body consistently demonstrates higher levels of beta-glucans and has been used for thousands of years (use of mycelium is a much more recent phenomenon).

Psst: In case you’re keeping track, our blend features all three adaptogenic mushrooms: Reishi, Cordyceps, and Poria. These are the only three mushrooms that are considered to be adaptogens, so don’t let brands tell you otherwise #JustSayNoToAdaptogenWashing. You didn’t think we’d skip our Rasa adapto-magic, did you?!
