Wild-Foraged Functional Mushrooms Products

Wild-Foraged Mushroom Extracts

Forager of Fungal Nutrition

Elevated Spores is a facilitator of the lost art of wild-foraging fungal and plant medicines. A tradition that is thousands of years old, but long forgotten. There is medicine in the forest, all around us, there are no gatekeepers, it is just there for us to use.

I chose to devote my life to going into these forests to collect these medicines carefully, sustainably and with upmost respect for the fungi and environment. I chose to bring them to the people, to educate the people, to hopefully change as many peoples lives as possible.

Experience the Wild-Foraged Difference

We are fans of all functional mushrooms but there is clearly something very special about wild-foraged functional mushrooms. This may be because they grow naturally, in the suns light on nutrient dense substrate. They are exposed to the natural elements and have to develop defense compounds to protect themselves from pathogens and other environmental threats. We can harness the same powers by consuming them and their extracts.

Elevated Spores focuses most of its energy on three wild-foraged functional mushrooms. These are the tried and true, and they are all foraged in the isolated forests of the midwest United States.
