Company bio

Mycroboost is an organic mushroom product line, designed to make the health benefits of mushrooms accessible to all. Our gummies and softgels are organic, naturally sourced and certified lab tested. We source our mushrooms—lion’s mane, chaga, reishi, cordyceps and turkey tail—from a premium North American cultivator with four decades of myco-experience. We make our products exclusively with fruiting bodies (not mycelial biomass) for maximum health benefits, quality and taste. Unlike other organic mushroom products sold in major stores, our products are made with fruiting bodies (not mycelial biomass) and routinely tested to guarantee safety, quality and an unbeatable taste. We also work with an industry-leading supplier who has more than 40 years of myco-experience. The result? Quality organic mushrooms that are verified by science and trusted by many. Our CEO Robert Johnson is committed to making the magic of organic mushrooms more accessible without sacrificing quality, taste, or safety.
