Sulfur Shelf Mushroom Discussion:
The Sulfur Shelf mushroom is also known as “Chicken of the Woods”. Withing health groups on social media for support with the condition called “Morgellons”, it is generally called by its botanical name Laetiporus sulphureus.
It is an edible, and medicinal, mushroom that has been used as medicine since ancient times. I personally feed that medicinal mushrooms are a gift from “Mother Nature” herself. This particular mushroom has been studied for its activity against many types of pathogens, all the while supporting many dis-ease processes. The tincture form containing the fruiting body, like this, is the highest suggested form to use. Here is a study that you may find very informative, pertaining to this specific mushroom. Click Here to view it. A very important aspect that it touches on, I feel, is that the free radical scavenging capabilities of this particular mushroom is said to be even higher than that of glutathione!
This mushroom is packed full of antioxidants, which we feel may be key in fighting modern epidemics, as well as general disease. It has shown to be supportive of free radical scavenging, metal chelation, enzyme modulation, and lipoprotein inhibition. Some of the pathogens it’s been studied for are, but not limited to: Candida albicans, Candida parapsilopsis, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis, and Staphylococcus.
Many in the community of the condition called “Morgellons” are excited about its use. While we highly suggest many medicinal mushrooms, we do not back any type of claim, as we feel there are many that may support these matters. Using mushrooms for a 6-month term may show you their full potential.
Medicinal mushrooms are to be respected. Therefore, caution is to be taken with its use. Start it slowly and work up while using it. You can use it internally, as well as externally, directly on lesions, sores, and any type of skin blemish.
The biggest question we get asked is, “Can I eat mushrooms with candida/fungal issues?” Due to this being a “grey area”, we should do our best to clarify. In our opinion, if mushrooms fed fungus, it would be well-known and not questionable at all. I know that while suffering from candida affecting my central nervous system, mushrooms helped me. Mushrooms contain an abundance of “polysaccharides” and “protein-bound polysaccharides”. Canida feeds on simple sugars, which there is nothing simple about the constituents in mushrooms, as they are complex. As a matter of fact, it is these “protein-bound polysaccharides” that are said to be super-beneficial for fighting candida. Candida and other fungal species that infect the body seem to feed on simple sugars and as it turns out, it may be the complex compounds and macronutrients that specialize in fighting it!
They are immune-stimulating and anything that may help immunity, could be beneficial. Take into consideration the fact that they are a highly respected herb in ancient Chinese medicine. Many mushrooms contain constituents that are unique to them, which is why some compounds are named after the mushroom they are found in. Mushrooms are highly protective of the liver, which is especially helpful to those suffering from fungal and pathogenic issues because the liver works overtime to process the toxins they produce.
They are dense in B vitamins and can actually supply a complete vitamin B complex! Meaning if you use a blend of mushrooms, like this, you may be getting all the B vitamins! A vitamin B deficiency is commonly associated with pathogenic issues, as it is said they feed on the B vitamins inside of our body. They are also rich in riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid. When you receive these compounds together, you may be protecting heart health. Riboflavin is beneficial for your red blood cells and niacin supports digestive health and skin. In higher amounts, niacin acts as a flush for toxins and toxic matter.
They contain selenium, potassium, copper, iron, and phosphorus, which are not normally found in herbs. They are also high in antioxidants, such as ergothioneine and glutathione, which are said to be preventatives and supportive of many types of neurological issues, especially the more common and chronic ones. As a matter of fact, by consuming them daily, you may boost processes of the brain, like memory, and lessen cognitive decline later in life.
Antioxidants are amazing for support with free radicals and oxidative stress. This in turn supports cellular health and may offer cell protection. The vitamin C content in mushrooms is significant enough to mention. Vitamin C supports immunity and heart health as well. We use the whole mushroom, including the stem. The stem is high in a fiber called beta-glucans and they are known for cholesterol support.
Mushrooms are commonly used in cooking because many say they enhance the taste of food. This is due to the glutamate ribonucleotides. They are actually used to substitute meats for many vegetarians and these compounds are what make them taste similar. Therefore, they have the taste, yet no harmful effects on your blood pressure or heart. They are low in salt, calories, fat, and cholesterol.
Many are looking to supplement vitamin D, yet when they take a synthetic form, many say it didn’t agree with them. Mushrooms are the only non-animal source of vitamin D, due to a compound called ergosterol, which they convert to create a natural vitamin D. This is what mushrooms naturally do! They synthesize vitamin D from sunlight. This means they may support all that vitamin D supplementation does, like bone health and strength!

A complete list of the medicinal mushrooms that we carry!
We offer every herb in multiple variations. For example, you can get it as a standard tincture, oxygenated tincture, glycerite, herbal tea, encapsulated, or as a loose powder. We highly recommend getting at least two variations of the preferred blend, to achieve saturation.
Standard Tincture – Herbal compounds extracted in an alcohol base. Alcohol offers a superior absorption rate. We recommend allowing your dose to sit under the tongue for 3+ minutes, then swallowing it down with a drink of water. Otherwise, you may add it to 4 oz. of water, juice, or a smoothie. Microscopic compounds are readily available to be absorbed through tissues, into the bloodstream, and then circulated to organs.
Herbosomal/Lipospheric Tincture – This is the standard tincture, put through an energetic process. We collide the herbal compounds with oxygen and essential oil molecules, entrapping them within an oxygenated bubble. The process can be seen because the tincture lightens in color. The lipospheres’ may have the capability to surpass the bioavailability of a standard tincture, although it exhibits all of the same benefits.
Glycerite – Herbal compounds extracted in vegetable glycerin. This contains NO alcohol and NO sugar. The taste of glycerin resembles syrup, which makes it ideal for children. This version may be best for those highly sensitive or are seeking a nonalcoholic extraction. Doses may need to be up to three times higher than a tincture to receive similar benefits. They can be taken in the same way as tinctures, which is in 4 oz. of water, juice, or a smoothie.
Vegetarian Capsule – Size 00, vegetarian capsules, hand-encapsulated, to order. The capsule is swallowed with at least 4 oz. of water or juice.
Herbal Tea – Tea bags are handmade to order. Each bag can be brewed up to three times. Constituents will be continually extracted with each brew. Be sure to squeeze the bag gently upon finishing your cup of lovely tea. The label specifies the brewing instructions, which highly depends on the parts of the plant that are used in the tea. It may be best to drink as is, without adding a sugar substitute. Don’t forget the medicinal residue settled at the bottom of the cup!
Loose Herbal Powder – We take pride in the freshness and quality of our herbs. They are hand-ground, to order. Most of our herbs are wildcrafted by us. If we must purchase them, we first choose them in their whole form. We feel that ethically wildcrafted is superior, ensuring a denser content of medicinal compounds, freshness, as well as higher enzymatic/antioxidant activity. Wildcrafting also allows us to include as many parts as possible. We always indicate wildcrafted with the abbreviation “WC”. We purchase freeze-dried acai berries.
Topical Ointment – An oil-based salve infused with Sulfur Shelf Mushroom, and it is scented with our Litsea essential oil.
Infused Oil – We delicately infuse sunflower oil with Sulfur Shelf Mushroom. It is an amazing, infused oil to use! It is scented with our Litsea essential oil.
Organic Soap – We offer infused, organic soap in 8 oz. portions. This is two 4 oz. bars. It is scented with our Litsea essential oil.
