How do I know if I have a real mushroom product?
You’ll know the product contains the full beta-glucan compounds your dog deserves if the product uses the whole fruiting body (not just mycelium).
What this means is you’re looking for the part of the mushroom that shows above ground and the good stuff that goes beneath the surface.
Most mushroom products are mycelium and not the actual mushroom. Grown on grains like oats and rice, they are made in labs then ground up into a powder.
The problem is, if you’re buying a mycelium mushroom product, you’re missing out on the rich beta-glucan content that comes from the whole fruiting body that you’re looking for for your dog.
Beta-glucans are active compounds found in mushrooms. And the whole Fruiting body offers more vitamins and minerals for your dog.
How are your mushrooms grown?
Four Leaf Rover’s mushrooms grow on wood. This ensures that the medicinal compounds people look for in mushrooms, are actually in them.
The greenhouses have fresh and water air filtering through with natural sunshine coming in.
After harvest time, the mushrooms are tested for chemicals or contamination.
Are your mushrooms water extracted or dried?
Our mushrooms are water extracted because the fruiting bodies need hot water to help break down chitin in the cell walls. Dogs and humans don’t have the digestive enzyme required to break down chitin. This is why this form of extraction is used to ensure all the nutrients from the fruiting body are intact. Extraction pulls out the beta-glucans. The extraction is now purified, then dried into a powder with all the essential mushroom elements intact.
How do I know if your mushrooms are high quality?
All of our mushroom bathes are checked for bacteria, chemicals, pesticides and heavy metals. The next step is testing the mushroom extracts for beta-glucan content to make sure the mushrooms are true and medicinal. All of our mushrooms are certified organic. They are free of heavy metals and pesticides. No mycelium, no grains, and no starches.
Is it ok to give my dogs mushrooms more than once a day?
Once a day should be enough if your dog’s not dealing with any health issues.
For a dog that is fighting an illness and is looking for more support, you can give mushrooms up to two times a day.
