Tremella Mushroom History
Tremella has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. Today it is extensively cultivated on sawdust logs in shade-houses. Tremella is a flowery shaped mushroom with a gelatinous texture. It is a rich source of carbohydrates with an atypically low amount of protein. It has been used in skin products for its moisturizing properties and is considered to have positive effects on the skin. Research has also demonstrated immunological potentiation.
Tremella Mushroom Uses
Proudly Made in China
In 1996, CEO and Founder of Nammex, Jeff Chilton organized organic mushroom production in China. That initiative paid off and today all Nammex mushrooms are grown or wildcrafted deep in the mountains of China by our Certified Organic production partners.
Not All Medicinal Mushrooms Products are Created Equal
US lab-grown Tremella is mycelium grown on grain. Analysis has shown that US Tremella mycelium on grain has low levels of beta-glucan and very high levels of starch. Nammex only uses 100% organic fruiting bodies which are rigorously tested and guaranteed for active compounds.
