Tremella fuciformis, known as White Jelly or Snow Fungus, is a tropical mushroom found on hard woods after heavy rains. This mushroom is one of the most popular fungi in the cuisine and medicine of China. Tremella fuciformis is a white, nearly translucent, fungus throughout Asia and in warmer climates worldwide. The fungus gets the common name of wood ear for the way it looks on the decaying logs on which it grows.
Tremella fuciformis may support immune health. According to Chinese traditional medicine, if it is eaten regularly, facial freckles may lighten or disappear. However, this has not been scientifically studied.
Nootropics Depot has partnered with Nammex to offer these certified Organic whole fruiting body extracts, with not only testing to verify the percentage of active beta glucans, but verification that starch content is low, and that there are no pesticide residues. One of the biggest controversies in the mushroom industry today is the use of mycelium on grain extracts. Mycelium is to a mushroom like what roots are to a tree. When grown properly, they will form whole fruiting bodies; which are called mushrooms. However, to save money, most US producers of mushroom extracts today grow the mycelium on a bed of grain, like rice. To speed up production, and to make the end product cheaper to produce, these manufacturers grind up the mycelium and grain together, before allowing them to form whole fruiting bodies. The issue with that is that mycelium is not a mushroom, just like the roots of a tree are not a tree. The beneficial compounds in these mushroom species are all studied with relation to their fruiting bodies. The FDA even states that mycelium is not allowed to be called "mushrooms." However, many of the biggest brands today thwart that FDA guideline, and put out a cheaply-made, mislabeled, and ultimately inneffective products. They hide this fact by standardizing to "polysaccharides" instead of "β-Glucans." Well guess what shows up as polysaccharides in the traditional testing? Carbohydrates! Yes, the very carbohydrates from the rice used to grow the mycelium is used as a measure of the active ingredient in these substandard extracts. When you are buying one of the major mushroom extracts on store shelves today, you are buying a bunch of ground up rice mixed in with mycelium! It's a scam! This is why we decided to partner with Nammex. We are selling only certified Organic whole fruiting body extracts, which have been tested for not only the active β-Glucans, but to ensure the starch content is low; to prove what you are getting is actual mushroom, not ground up rice. You will know right away how big of a difference it is. You can even go to the store right now, and pick out one of the major mushroom brands. Mix the "mushroom" powder into some water, and ad a drop of iodine. It will quickly turn a dark purple/blue, indicating high amounts of starch. You'll immediately see how big of a scam it is, and just how many "trusted" brands are in on it!

I’ve been taking the Tremella as well as Chaga and Turkey tail, I put them in my smoothies and I’ve been getting a lot of compliments on my skin-so I will definitely continue ordering them! Jessica on 23rd May 2018
We are using this product in skin care - so far it is performing very well. We are so happy to be able to use quality whole-food ingredients. Thank you.

Taken as directed, I found this to be good for soft, smooth skin. Very fluffy, so takes a minute to mix in water. Less pungent than other mushrooms. Very innocuous, low flavor. Pure quality as always. OceanFixNow99 on 3rd Mar 2018
After reading the description I decided to try them out. I will usually take them at night, 1 gram, and mix them with bowl of strawberry banana yogurt w/ hemp granola, or something similar in nature, sometimes in my morning tea. I take a couple of other mushroom extracts with this, so it's hard to pinpoint the exact effects of this mushroom. I don't know if it's from this mushroom, or a culmination of the other two, (Cordyceps and Turkey Tail) but from the statement about clearing up freckles, I'd assume it has effects on the skin, and I have noticed my skin is the softest it has ever been, and that's without using any lotions or anything hygiene wise. Also, over the time I've been taking it that as others around me have gotten sick, and taken day's to weeks to get better, I find that I'll still got their symptoms, but I usually felt back to my normal self the next morning, while they continued to suffer and teased me about my weird crazy diet. As it stands now, I'm certainly going to keep with this mushroom to study its effects further. Great quality, and speedy shipping as usual. I've never had orders come in a day earlier that projected, but it's consistent with Nootropicsdepot, which is awesome! Timothy on 22nd Jun 2017
I use this product to help boost my immune system since I have read good things about it. I definitely get sick a lot less when taking it. It's also very jelly like when you put it in your mouth. It has a very unique texture. I recommend trying it out. Unknown on 23rd Feb 2017
