When combined, they embody a synergy that mirrors the interconnectedness of the twelve meridians. This strategic blend leverages the collective power of these mushrooms, enhancing their inherent benefits and creating a unified force for health and vitality.
The Twelve Rivers MycoMedic is designed to resonate with and support the flow of Qi through all twelve meridians. This comprehensive approach ensures that the body's energetic pathways are nurtured, promoting balance and a vibrant state of health.

Why Choose Whole Fruiting Body Mushrooms
Mushrooms are comprised of the mycelium, an underground network, and the fruiting body, which emerges above ground at the end of the mushroom's lifecycle. It's within this fruiting body that the mushroom concentrates its most potent compounds—beta-glucans, polysaccharides, and terpenes—as it prepares for reproduction.
Recognizing the fruiting body as the pinnacle of the mushroom's beneficial properties, the Twelve Rivers MycoMedic Mushroom Elixir Tincture is crafted exclusively from whole fruiting bodies. This ensures that we harness the highest concentrations of these vital compounds, offering a potent and effective product that stands apart.
Capturing the Trifecta of Beneficial Compounds
Functional mushrooms are treasure troves of beneficial compounds, notably:
- Beta-glucans: Known for their immune-supporting properties.
- Polysaccharides: Contribute to overall wellness and vitality.
- Terpenes: Offer unique benefits and enhance the mushroom's effects.
While some products focus narrowly on polysaccharides, Twelve Rivers MycoMedic adopts a holistic approach. Our proprietary dual-stage extraction process is designed to capture not just polysaccharides but the full spectrum of beta-glucans and terpenes as well. This method ensures a more comprehensive and potent extraction, setting a new standard for efficacy in mushroom-based supplements.
By choosing the Twelve Rivers MycoMedic Mushroom Elixir Tincture, you're not just selecting a mushroom product; you're choosing a meticulously crafted solution designed to offer the full breadth of what functional mushrooms have to offer.
