ABOUT US

The use of medicinal mushrooms in Natural Health, is currently one of the most exciting trends emerging worldwide. And mounting scientific evidence backs-up millennia of traditional use.

Shrooms For Improvement is a mushroom company which was established in 2016. We grow medicinal and gourmet mushrooms and create mushroom products which are used as functional foods and nutritional supplements to support one’s overall health and wellbeing.

We also offer ready to grow mushroom kits and mushroom growing classes which afford people the exciting opportunity of growing their own mushrooms at home. We also market several cultivation supplies, mushroom cultures, dowel spawn and grain spawn to support budding and experienced mushroom enthusiasts.

Our unique selling point is that we grow all the mushrooms ourselves and produce all the mushroom derived commodities using our own mushrooms.

 Our extracts and dried mushrooms are created from the actual fruiting bodies and not the mycelium of the mushroom. If warranted, ± 30% of mycelium is included together with the fruiting bodies in our Cordyceps / Lion’s Mane extractions in order to retrieve compounds which are produced in substantially greater concentrations by the mycelium compared to the fruiting body. None of our mushrooms, substrates or products are imported. We are a proudly South African company.

We currently grow 3 different medicinal mushrooms (Reishi, Cordyceps & Lion’s Mane) on a commercial scale and several other gourmet and medicinal mushrooms  on a smaller scale (for use in classes, cultures and grain spawn). Though we are a relatively new start-up company, we pride ourselves on the quality of our supplements and our exacting standards.

Our mushrooms are grown seasonally in our specialised solar powered grow rooms and greenhouse.

We have reduced the use of single use plastic and polypropylene bags and are using more glass jars and polypropylene containers to grow our mushrooms in. All of these measures are employed to reduce our environmental footprint. 

The formation and quality of the mushrooms produced are highly dependent on the substrates used for growing them. Thus, we prioritise the use of locally sourced,  sustainable ingredients of the highest quality to support the growth of all our mushrooms.  

Maintaining our high growing standards and subjecting the mushrooms to minimal processing after harvest ensures that our quality remain uncompromised.

Our mission is to educate people about the benefits of edible & medicinal mushrooms; to teach them how to cultivate mushrooms simply, in an environmentally conscious way and how to use them as functional foods and supplements safely and competently.
