We get so many questions in the shop about the Ranibo 11:11 Tincture in the shop so we thought we answer some questions here!
Read on to learn all about Rainbo's 11:11 Super Multi-Mushroom Dual Extracted Tincture (we love saying that one fast!)
First question is, what is it?
The 11:11 Tincture is an extract of 11 organic mushrooms available in an alcohol or non-alcohol base. Rainbo mushrooms is a local company that sustainably cultivates, harvests and dries organic mushrooms.
In a dual process extraction, the mushrooms are first soaked in hot water. This essential step helps to pull beta-glucans from the mushroom's cell wall that would other wise stay locked in. The mushroom "tea" is concentrated and the mushrooms are then soaked in a solvent, like food grade ethanol, for weeks to continue the process of extraction. Alcohol releases non-water soluble compounds like triterpenes.
Both the water and alcohol are combined into the 11:11 tincture.
What is in the tincture?
Here are the 11 mushrooms included in this super tincture along with just a few of their amazing benefits:
Lion's Mane (Hericium erinaceus, Fruiting body + 10% Mycelium) -> Mood. Memory. Focus.
Mesima (Phellinus linteus, Fruiting body)
Agarikon (Laricifomes officinalis, Mycelium)
Shiitake (Lentinula edodes, Fruiting body)
What are the benefits of all these mushrooms?
Rainbo has done their homework! On their site they provide links to scientific papers that help support the encouraging claims below.
- Immune health via fungal polysaccharides with immunomodulating properties. This means the mushrooms keep the immune system in balance by stimulating it when there's something to fight and down-regulating it when it's overactive.
- Antioxidant activity in the body. The mushrooms work in and with cells to repair and take out damaging cells.
- Energy and resilience.
How do I use the tincture?
The 11:11 tincture is formulated to be used everyday, like a multi-vitamin. We enjoy adding a full vial to our morning beverage like a coffee or tea. Diluted in liquids like this, the tincture isn't noticeable.
Rainbo recommends taking 4ml twice a day.
How long will the bottle last?
When used daily, the bottle will last you one month...that is unless you're sharing!
Will I notice the benefits?
Yes! With daily use over time the benefits become noticeable. Of course, each person will have a different experience. Check out the 200+ reviews on the Rainbo site!
We've noticed increased focus throughout the day and a healthier gut. We also trust that the tincture is supporting our immune system, results are a little hard to see with our current mask mandate, but as long as we're staying healthy, we're happy!
