MycoDog, producer of all-natural medicinal mushroom products for pets, has released three new tinctures designed to address common but serious pet health concerns: VITALITY for cancer and autoimmune diseases, CLARITY for CCD, nervous system and emotional support and BREATHE for respiratory and cardiovascular support. These mushroom-based extracts were formulated by botanical pet medicine expert Angela Ardolino, in collaboration with myco-alchemist Jason Scott and are all triple-extracted from the fruiting bodies of fungi cultivated and wild-harvested in the United States.
Mushrooms are bio-accumulators, which means they absorb toxins from the environment in which they’re cultivated. So, where mushrooms are grown and harvested is important. Because a significant number of commercial mushroom products are grown in China, they may present a higher likelihood for exposure to and absorption of pollutants. MycoDog only uses mushrooms grown and harvested in the US Pacific Northwest.
MycoDog mushroom extracts are preserved in organic glycerin rather than alcohol, ensuring a longer shelf-life compared to mushroom extract powders that begin oxidizing the moment the package is opened. In addition, mushroom extract tinctures are typically more bioavailable than powdered versions, since they can be absorbed into the bloodstream upon consumption, rather than having to undergo the digestive process.
Both cannabis and mushrooms have been researched extensively for their medicinal uses, particularly for cancer, dementia and immune support.
