MISSION

Our mission at Mushroom Matrix is to educate and inspire people to use medicinal mushrooms as a healthy alternative in promoting health, wellness and longevity. Mushrooms have been revered in Eastern Cultures for thousands of years for their ability to optimize immune health, and to this day are used to treat a wide variety of health conditions.

We visited all corners of the globe in our journey to find the most magical strains of medicinal mushrooms. All of our mushrooms are Certified 100% Organic and are grown and produced solely in southern California. 

We begin the growing process by using 100% Organic oats from Canada as the medium for growing the mushrooms.  Oats are a superior substrate that optimizes the nutritional value of the finished product.  We focus on harnessing the whole mushroom lifecycle - including the mycelium fruit body primoridia and extra-cellular enzymes that in combination provide for high levels of bioactivity and efficacy. 

We create truly whole super-food supplements and the attention to detail in our production is proven by the unique and powerful efficacy of each our products. We dehydrate our mushrooms at low temperatures in order to retain vital enzymatic activity and then treat them with UV light in order to naturally increase the level of vegan Vitamin D.

Our efforts to produce the most effective, healthy and safe mushroom supplements are validated each and every day when we receive calls and emails from satisfied customers whose energy levels and overall health have been Mpowered by the “magic” of our mushrooms– for themselves and their four-leggedfriends.   

Be well. Be Mpowered.

Common Questions

Can I take multiple products safely? Should I take multiple products?

Yes absolutely. We've created an array of products to assist in your daily health and wellness whatever your health needs may be. All of our different mushroom species are known to help with various health ailments, and each blend was scientifically formulated with that in mind. We do however suggest that you always consult a physician if you are thinking of using our products and face any major health concerns and are taking medication.

What is the difference between Fit Matrix and NRG Matrix?

Fit Matrix is a blend of performance-tested strains of Certified 100% Organic Medicinal Mushrooms for muscle building, cellular energy, speed and aid recovery, optimum fitness performance, and daily vitality. Fit Matrix is intended for the everyday athlete or individual looking for a natural and effective edge in training, performance, and daily immune wellness. Easily added to smoothies and fruit juices!

We took the same performance-based blend of Organic Medicinal Mushrooms found in Fit Matrix, and added Organic Botanicals and natural flavoring ingredients to form a potent synergy of immediate energy, alertness and immune boost known as NRG Matrix. With 119 milligrams of clean caffeine from botanical herbs, vitamins and antioxidants, NRG Matrix is perfect for use as a pre-workout or mid-day pick-me-up energy drink in a convenient citrus-flavored powder stick that easily mixes with water.

Long story short, NRG Matrix is Fit Matrix with the added benefits of organic botanicals that increase the effect of energy and focus.

Where do your mushrooms come from?

We receive our mushrooms from our sister company M2 Ingredients, and all mushrooms are Certified 100% Organic and grown and produced solely in San Marcos, California. 

Are your products organic? 

All of our products contain Certified 100% Organic Mushrooms, but not all of our products are 100% organic. 

Will your mushrooms make me hallucinate? 

No, they will not.

How much caffeine is in NRG Matrix? Is that a lot of caffeine? 

NRG Matrix contains roughly 118 milligrams of caffeine, which is comparable to a mild cup of coffee. Because our caffeine is derived from organic plant based sources, it is much more bio-available and works systemically with your body. For example, the caffeine found in guarana is actually identical in chemical structure to the caffeine found in coffee. Further, synthetic caffeine sources (commonly found in energy drinks) said to be absorbed much faster than by your digestive system than natural plant based caffeines.  The mushrooms synergize with the caffeine creating both short term and long term duration energy, allowing your body to gradually absorb the caffeine and avoiding a crash and/or an immediate intense reaction.
