mushroom capsules, manufactured out of fine, white powder, have been used since ancient times for decorative and edible mushrooms. Capsules are available in different shapes like square, round, cake/ball, etc. Each capsule contains between 30 and 40 grams (4.1 to six.2 gram liquid) of dried mushrooms. A typical mushroom capsule contains mushroom stem, casing, and a small amount of fat. The capsules can be identified by the small black dots enclosed within the white colored mushroom caps. The most commonly used mushroom capsules are those manufactured out of French mushroom, Turkish chestnut, Carrot Root, Canadian black, Golden Mushroom, Puffball, Holy Basil, Amaryllis, Button, Pumpkin, Carrot Root, Horehound, frostroot, and Boston Broom.
Most mushroom capsules contain mushroom stem, which is also known as chanticleer or rhizome. The rhizome or chanticlean of each mushroom capsule is very small and firm; it has only two to three oval holes. The most commonly used mushroom stem is the one manufactured from the buttons and Canadian black mushrooms, which are called Button’s Caps or chanticleer in German. However, they are available in a wide variety of other types of mushroom stems. They are also available in powders, tablets, and chewing gums.
It is essential to choose mushroom capsules that are organic grown. A natural product ensures that the ingredients of the product are obtained without any chemicals or pesticides. This is because chemicals contained on mushroom crops do not go well with any health product, whether consumed orally or applied on the skin. A mushroom grower who is an expert in his field should always produce organically grown products. However, mushroom producers can also be consulted for advice.

The MicroDose capsule is manufactured in tiny-sized pieces, which makes it easier for it to pass through the digestive tract.

Unlike other mushroom capsules, MicroDose has no artificial ingredients, coloring, or added flavors. Its natural flavor comes from the proprietary blend of organic mushrooms used in its formulation. It is also free of gluten, lactose, and wheat. This product is available in capsule form. It is available at online retailers such as GNC, as well as health food stores.
