My hesitancy for a 5 star review is not aimed at the inclusion of mycelial biomass but rather the exclusion of fruiting bodies into their products. As stated in the ingredients, this product contains "primordia and/or fruit body." Emphasis on the AND/OR. I've done the research, I know that the inclusion of mycelium offers more than the mushroom alone, but would prefer to see consistent inclusion of the "fruit body" with the mycelium and primordia. Because primordia is the immature state of a mushroom thereby taking less time from cultivation to harvest, it seems like it is a way to to make more product in less time (than it would take to let the mature mushroom form -- the fruit body) and yet still technically be able to label a product as "mushroom powder."
Thanks for your review. We hear your concerns about whether the Turkey Tail has sufficient benefits without including the fruiting body in the final product. We can assure you the answer is yes! We cultivate mushrooms in individual bioreactor bags that protect them from airborne contamination. The bags allow the mushrooms to “breathe” as they grow. Once the mycelial stage is depleted, the next growth stage occurs and fruit body development (primordia) initiates. This event is enough to trigger the nutrient phase present in the fruiting body. Please be assured our process is not intended to “product more product in less time”. Rather, it is designed to assure we maintain an optimized growing environment to provide your pet with the most efficacious and safe product available.
Dante is cleaning his bowl every evening he loves the taste.. before he left half his food behind....all the good stuff should be happening inside.
Just started this but it came HIGHLY recommended from my holistic vet and 2 others in dog rescue. I will update in a month or so.
Do not waste your money. Website and marketing are very misleading. They show you how organic and great the mushrooms are with pictures and literature but forget to tell you the mushroom powders are made from mycelium and not fruiting bodies where all the beta glucans are found that benefit your animals. The mycelium (roots) are ground up with the oats so you are feeding your animals pretty much starch with ineffective mycelium. Do your research! Then you get charged a premium price. Very disappointed with the false marketing!
Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback on our Canine Matrix products. Unfortunately, there has been quite a bit of misinformation flying around online about mushroom products recently. I appreciate the opportunity to respond and to discuss our products and our production methods. At M2 Ingredients/Canine Matrix, we grow our mushrooms in a clean room environment through their full lifecycle including in most cases the mycelium, the primordia and fruit bodies. As we proudly state on all our labels, our products are powdered mushroom mycelial biomass and fruiting bodies grown on an organic oat substrate. Mycelium has enormous benefits - much of the research on Turkey Tail mushroom is done on mycelium only as it contains the highest activity from certain polysaccharides. It has been reported that significantly more genes are expressed during the long mycelial life stage as compared to the short fruit body life stage. Companies in Japan have extensive, published research on mycelium that has been utilized as adjunct therapy for cancer treatment for people. A much-noted study on Turkey Tail mushrooms for dogs with cancer at the University of Pennsylvania was performed using a mycelium-derived product. Beta Glucans are key components in mushrooms and are found in both the fruiting body and the mycelium of the mushroom. The mycelium, however, contains many additional beneficial compounds including digestive enzymes, fungal alpha glucans, prebiotic dietary fibers, sterols, peptides and a wide variety of antioxidants. As our products are a whole food and not extracted, Canine Matrix contains not only the beta glucans but all these additional compounds which work together to support your dog’s immune function. You may notice that our dosage is a larger quantity than extracted products. Our dosing ensures that your dog is getting an efficacious dose of the immunity-supporting beta glucans as well as all the other beneficial compounds produced by each mushroom in our products. We take great pride in our high quality growing and processing technology. Our mushroom products are grown, processed and packaged in our cGMP facility in Carlsbad, California. We are Certified Organic by Organic Certifiers. Products from China and other countries, whether certified organic or not, may not undergo the meticulous testing for heavy metals and other contaminants that can be present in polluted environments. Our products go through rigorous testing both in-house and in 3rd party accredited labs ensuring that our products meet the highest standards for both humans and animals. I completely understand wanting the best possible products for your pets as I feel the same way. My pets take Canine Matrix. My family and I take our human products, Om Mushrooms. I can’t speak for the way other products are sourced or produced but I know that our products are efficacious and subject to the highest quality standards. It can be difficult at times to sort out opinion and facts when researching the best options for our pets and ourselves. While we hope that everyone will love our products as much as we do, we realize that sometimes that is just not possible. Please give us a call 866-740-6874 and we will take care of you. We stand behind our products and want you to be happy.
My dogs love it and see a difference in my older guys attitude! Thanks for making such great products.
