Why We Chose It

Real Mushrooms 5 Defenders contain five different mushroom varieties intended to help support an improved immune system and overall well-being. We liked that this formula includes four of our top five recommended mushrooms. However, the formula is lacking our top-ranking mushroom, Lion’s Mane. We see many manufacturers leave out Lion’s Mane as it is an expensive ingredient, and those companies may be more focused on their profit margins. Our biggest concern with Real Mushrooms is that they use a proprietary blend to hide the amount per serving for each mushroom. We have no way of knowing if the 1,000 mg serving size is 900 mg Chaga and 20 mg of each other mushroom. The lack of transparency is concerning. Real Mushroom backs their product with a minimal 30-day refund period, which only applies to unopened bottles. This formula uses a vegetarian capsule and is non-GMO.
