Sourcing the right products

The UK is home to over 15,000 species of mushrooms, a small number of which are readily available and regularly consumed.

At Oxford Contract Manufacturing we manufacture with a variety of mushroom species including Shiitake, Maitake, Chaga, Reishi, Cordyceps Sinensis and Lion’s Mane. We source these mushrooms as whole powders, concentrated extracts and Organic mushroom powders.

We understand that the power of these supplements comes from the purity and potency of their active ingredients, thus, we meticulously source our mushrooms, ensuring they are grown and harvested under optimal conditions.

Every mushroom that goes into our products is subjected to rigorous testing to ensure its potency, purity, and safety.


Why choose Mushrooms?

Mushrooms are rich in a number of nutrients and are known for being one of the few non-animal sources of Vitamin D, which is produced when ergosterol in the mushroom is transformed into Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) after exposure to ultraviolet light.

Alongside macronutrients and micronutrients, mushrooms also contain compounds such as polysaccharides, indoles, polyphenols and carotenoids which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immunomodulatory effects.

For these reasons, mushrooms have been eaten and used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years.


What are the benefits?

Different species of mushrooms have a different composition. Subsequently, the benefits can vary between species and also between the part of the mushroom used.

Food supplements will often contain either the mycelium (the root system) or the fruiting body (the stem and cap) of the mushroom. While the total protein concentration and biological value of mycelium and fruiting bodies are similar, the concentration and structure of polysaccharides are different. For example, the quantity of 1,3/1,6 Beta-Glucans - a polysaccharide which has demonstrated significant anti-inflammatory and immune benefit and has been shown to contribute to the maintenance of normal cholesterol levels - is higher in the fruiting body of the mushroom.


 Research has shown mushrooms to be highly beneficial for the following:

  • Cognitive Function
  • Psychological Well-being
  • Immune Support
  • Exercise Performance
  • Cardiovascular Health

One benefit of manufacturing mushroom tablets and capsules is that they provide all the health benefits without the mushroom taste and texture that some people dislike.

As well as being highly beneficial on their own, mushrooms combine well with vitamins, minerals and a variety of herbal ingredients to produce a synergistic effect.
