Professional Supplement Center now carries Four Sigmatic, a line of powdered medicinal mushroom elixirs, mushroom coffee mixers and mushroom hot cocaos. Founded in the Nordic counties with a mission to provide a simple and easy way to have a significant positive impact on heath, this employee-owned, start-up company relocated to the U.S. in 2014. Now expanded to more than 25 countries, the passion to make a real difference in global health continues. Mushrooms utilized in these products are wild harvested or obtained from their own mushroom farms. They are then dried and dual extracted before boiling in purified water to liquefy the mushrooms. Evaporation then results in concentrated active components and 100% pure mushroom extract powder. Every batch undergoes extensive testing both in-house and by a third-party laboratory to ensure the quality and safety of all products.

While the thought of consuming mushrooms in liquid form may seem like a new concept, mushrooms in the form of teas and soups have been utilized for centuries in traditional eastern medicine as well as by indigenous peoples. Extensive research has shown that medicinal mushrooms have pharmacologically active compounds and complex substances that have antimicrobial, antiviral, antitumor, antiallergic, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulating, and hepatoprotective properties.
