Where does the Tremella mushroom used for Ogaenics grow?
Tremella or silver ear mushroom is grown in the unspoiled nature of the Chinese highlands, far from cities and urban centers in the two regions of Fujian and Jiangxi. Here are optimal climatic conditions for the growth of vital mushrooms. The mushrooms are grown in protected greenhouses, where temperature, humidity and sunlight can be optimally controlled.
How is Ogaenics Tremella extract produced?
For 1 kg of Tremella extract, 100 kg of freshly harvested silver ear mushrooms are needed. These are first dried and then ground into mushroom meal. In order to obtain an absolutely pure and high quality extract, this is filled into a tank which is filled with pre-purified water and air. The mushrooms swell while the water is slowly heated to 90 degrees. The mushroom meal particles swirl in the water and release their precious ingredients. Boiling makes the polysaccharides available. This process can take up to 8 hours. At the end, the water and contents are drained and heated in a vacuum evaporator until the water has evaporated. After spray drying, the result is a pure and highly concentrated organic tremella mushroom extract.
