Mason's Mushrooms Review By Darcy - Bircher Bar Founder & Owner.
What I Like:
It's got it all. This is what I'd call SuperFeast's 'flagship' medicinal mushroom blend and my personal 'go-to' as it's a quick and easy way to get the benefits from a wide range of different medicinal mushrooms all at once.
It's a great mix to start out on for immune-strengthening, energy levels and nervous system support, and if you'd like to target a particular function more specifically you can move into a single mushroom extract from here for more potency.
The Taste - The taste is quite 'umami' and works with a wide range of beverages and savoury foods. I use it mostly to make mushroom coffee.
Company Values and Service - I've worked closely with SuperFeast for a number of years and have a great deal of trust and respect for their business. They've always been transparent with their practices, ingredients and values, and are always striving to improve day by day.
From a customer viewpoint, they have the best customer service I've come across. To top it off, they also offer free shipping, secure payments (with AfterPay included) and are a family-owned business! You can read more about that here.
What I Think Could Be Improved:
Not so much an improvement as something to consider - given that it is a blend of eight different medicinal mushrooms, none of them are present at the same potency levels that you'll find in a single mushroom powder extract. Mason's is great as an 'all-rounder' for maintenance and prevention, but if you're after the highly specific benefits of a particular mushroom, I'd recommend buying it as a single extract.
- A great all-around blend offering many powerful health benefits
- A beautiful flavour that mixes perfectly with coffee (personal preference of course!)
- SuperFeast as a company are as transparent, ethical and 'user-friendly' as they come
- Being an 8-mushroom blend, the potency of each individual mushrooms is obviously reduced

What Are Medicinal Mushrooms?:
Medicinal mushrooms are simply varieties of mushrooms that work in the human body to produce a medicinal effect! In nature, they work symbiotically with the plants and soil to unite the forests of Earth and maintain a super healthy ecosystem.
Medicinal mushrooms or 'functional mushrooms' are revered in the ancient herbal traditions for building immunity, advanced hormonal adaptability and an increased capacity for integration throughout the body, including the nervous system and immune system.
As an adaptogen, they've been celebrated and utilised in cultures around the world for centuries for their ability to help the body restore a state of equilibrium known as 'homeostasis' and deal with external stresses and illness.
With the development of modern science, research has further confirmed their health benefits, showing that they are rich in polysaccharides, triterpenes, antioxidants and many other health-stimulating compounds.
All of the mushrooms used in Masons Mushroom blend are tonic, meaning they will work to adapt your body to stress, balance your hormones, and enable your immunity to evolve permanently so you can ensure your body is potentiated.

Can I mix my herbs together?:
Absolutely! Each SuperFeast tonic herb has different benefits and ways in which they aid the body and so, in this regard, they are well suited to be taken in combinations that align with your individual needs.
What is a dual extract?:
When herbs are extracted from plant material this is generally done using a solvent such as water or alcohol. Each method is beneficial, alcohol is used to draw out the fat-soluble components of the herbs, such as triterpenoids while water is used to obtain the herbs immune-boosting polysaccharides. Some herbs contain both fat and water-soluble constituents, and that's where dual extract comes in! Here, SuperFeast use both water and alcohol to acquire the herb’s full medicinal profile.
How much should I take?:
Generally, we recommend taking the herbs daily in small doses to begin with, start with 1/4-1/2 teaspoon per day, building up to a good heaped teaspoon per day once you feel it necessary.

Mushroom M8 is one of SuperFeast's newest and highly-anticipated products. A potent 8-mushroom blend hand selected for their powerful immune-boosting qualities in one easy-to-take capsule, ideal for those busy mornings!
Read our full review of SuperFeast Mushroom M8.
As with Mason's Mushrooms, this is an 8-mushroom blend of powdered extracts but swaps in a few different species, offering different benefits & flavours.
Not an 'all-in-one' blend but 5 mushroom kit containing liquid extract bottles of Lions Mane, Turkey Tail, Cordyceps, Reishi & Shiitake. This is a great 'bang for your buck' pack and perfect for those who'd prefer a liquid extract as opposed to powdered.
