Mushrooms For Life was originally founded in 2011 by renowned naturopath and author Martin Powell, with the aim of making the very best mushroom supplements more widely available and accessible. Speaking fluent Mandarin, Martin spent many years in China working with experienced local growers, to ensure Mushrooms For Life sourced the highest quality ingredients; a key focus of the brand which remains today. In 2017 Martin entrusted Mushrooms For Life to fellow practitioners and experienced mushroom educators Graham Botfield and Ben Shouler, who have continued his work to this day.
We source only the highest quality mushrooms, organically grown from our farmers in China. The use of medicinal mushrooms was a cornerstone in Traditional Chinese Medicine and this practice dates back thousands of years.
No country has more extensive knowledge than China in the growing and extraction of mushrooms. China is also home to some of the vastest and most pristine forests in the world, which provide the ideal environment for mushrooms to grow. It is universally agreed, through ongoing DNA analysis, that China continue to grow the best quality mushrooms in the world.
We are passionate about sharing the secrets of medicinal forest fungi to enhance your wellbeing and vitality. From modest beginnings, Mushrooms For Life has expanded into one of the most comprehensive ranges of medicinal mushrooms in the UK.
Thank you for choosing us!
