Organic Maitake Extract - 167 MG
Maitake have been shown help to lower blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels, enhance your brain and immune system health and functions, and help treat a variety of different chronic illnesses, medical conditions and somatic ailments.
The problem is, research suggests that a minimum of 5 mg of maitake extract per pound of body weight must be consumed every day in order for this mushroom extract to deliver you powerful benefits (1).
As a result, the 167 mg dose of maitake mushroom powder present in a serving of Freshcap mushrooms will only be of any use for people weighing 68 pounds or less, so it will be completely useless for the vast majority of people.
Organic Chaga Extract - 167 MG
Chaga mushrooms are a type of edible macroscopic fungus that grows on birch trees and is rich in melanin, polyphenols, triterpenoids, and polysaccharides.
The nutrients they contain allow them to boost the health and functions of your gut and immune system, reduce your blood sugar and cholesterol levels, and either prevent or combat cell mutation, fatigue and a variety of different chronic illnesses and somatic ailments (2).
Unfortunately, as it has been established that 500 mg is the smallest dose of chaga extract that will be of any use, the 167 mg present in each serving of Freshcap is far too low to do anything at all.
Organic Turkey Tail Extract - 167 MG
Turkey tail mushrooms are most well known for being proven to be rich in antioxidants and polysaccharide k.
Turkey tail mushrooms can help improve digestion, your gut and immune system health and functions, physical performance, and cognitive abilities, reduce inflammation and blood sugar levels, and be used to treat a variety of different medical conditions, such as type 2 diabetes (3).
The issue is, like with everything else we have seen so far in Freshcap, the dose present is simply way too low for it to deliver these effects. With at least 1,000 mg of turkey tail mushroom extract needing to be ingested every day to see results, the 167 mg used in each serving of Freshcap will do nothing at all.
Organic Reishi Extract - 167 MG
Reishi mushrooms can boost your immune and brain health and functions, mood, sleep quality, strength, and stamina, reduce stress and anxiety, lower blood sugar and blood pressure levels, and prevent or treat metabolic syndrome and certain other chronic illnesses and the symptoms that they cause (4).
However, reishi mushrooms will only do any of this if you consume at least 1,440 mg of either reishi mushrooms or reishi extract each day. This means the 167 mg present in each serving of Freshcap mushrooms is considerably too low and will almost certainly do you no good at all.
Organic Cordyceps Extract - 167 MG
The cordyceps mushroom is said to boost everything from testicle, heart, immune system healthy through to brain functions and physical performance, mental clarity, and brain cell growth, and prevent or treat inflammation, the signs of aging, mental decline, arthritis, coughs, diabetes, diarrhoea, headaches, and even tumours. As a result it's quite popular in a lot of mushroom supplements. Some of these claims are of course overblown, but there's a fair amount of evidence for some of these.
The problem is, the benefits of cordyceps mushrooms are only produced when you consume a minimum of 1,000 mg of cordyceps mushrooms or their extract per day (5). With Freshcap containing just a sixth of that at 167 mg per serving, it is simply far too weak to deliver the results that it is normally capable of.
Organic Lion's Mane Extract -167 MG
The lions mane mushroom contains many bioactive compounds, and it can boost your memory, focus, blood flow, brain cell and nerve growth, concentration, brain function and performance, mental clarity, and immune health and functions, and prevent or treat brain fog, inflammation and cognitive decline (6).
Unfortunately, as 1,000 mg of lions mane mushroom extract is required to produce any of these effects, Freshcap containing just a sixth of that at 167 mg per serving will just not allow them to perform the job that they are included to do.
Freshcap advertise their Mushroom Complex as a supplement that can help ensure your body and brain remain healthy and functional simply by taking a dose of their capsules each morning. However, as our review should clearly show, it will simply not have a positive effect on your life in any way.
The ingredients it contains should benefit you in many ways, but the doses used are just far too low for them too do so. When you then add in it has also received many reviews that say it causes horrific side effects, we have to strongly suggest that you do not purchase Freshcap under any circumstances.
Instead, we would recommend you give Nootrum Mushrooms a try. Made from potent 20:1 extracts at double the dose and with 10 types of mushroom, each of which is extracted to deliver the maximum benefits it is capable of, meaning you actually get what FreshCap offer. No Cap.
(Although as an aside we really do like FreshCap's grow your own products, but we review health products here, so it's not something we're talking about).
