The interconnectedness of art, nature, and health has always captivated me. My educational journey in plant and soil science has deepened my understanding of this intricate relationship from a scientific perspective. It has taught me that everything in nature serves a purpose and that balance is key to its harmony. Inspired by this knowledge, my goal is to positively impact as many lives as possible. I firmly believe that the products I offer grant me the opportunity to fulfill this purpose. By constantly exploring ways to bridge my knowledge of plants and fungi, I strive to enhance people's well-being and make a meaningful difference in their lives. It is this pursuit that fuels my passion and ignites my dedication to promoting wellness.
Since a young age, I have been mesmerized by the profound wisdom of my grandmothers, who always possessed the innate knowledge of which plant to turn to for any ailment I experienced. This early exposure sparked a deep fascination within me, leading me to observe and study nature's intricate workings. It became evident to me that we can establish a symbiotic relationship with nature, learning from its inherent wisdom. This realization became even more profound after earning my biology degree, where I came to understand that we do not invent medicine but rather discover it in nature and replicate its healing properties. It was an epiphany that echoed the wisdom of my grandparents all along. Having lived on three different continents, I have been fortunate to encounter a diverse array of holistic medicines, each embedded within the unique cultural fabric of its respective society. Through these experiences, I firmly believe that harnessing the power of nature's medicine is the key to nurturing a healthy and vibrant life.
We believe everyone has the right to know what they are putting into their body. That’s why we are 100% transparent in our ingredients. No fillers, no natural flavors, no unnecessary additives. Only certified organic and completely pure ingredients make up our high potency extracts.
Our production is fulfilled in state-of-the-art GNP certified facilities, while our clean rooms are powered by fully automated machinery and remarkable adherence to safety guidelines and practices that earned them the coveted ISO9001 certification. All of our raw materials are third-party tested, and certified to be safe and of the highest qualities.
The fungi we focus on are; Rieshi, Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail, Cordyceps and Shiitake. When consumed consistently these mushrooms have a wide range of health benefits.
We perform a double extraction on all of our mushrooms to ensure we get all of the beta-glucans (water soluble) as well as the triterpenes (alcohol soluble). A double extraction has the added benefit of resulting in a shelf stable end product.
We utilize a number of botanicals that are used to improve or to maintain health. Medicinal properties can be derived from many different parts of a plant including leaves, roots, bark, fruit, seeds, and flowers. The majority of pharmaceuticals used today were originally found from components within plants.
Extracts provide a concentrated bioavailable form of nutrients that absorb quickly into your bloodstream. This means you get more of the wonderful nutrients fast and more efficiently.
An adaptogen is a natural substance, typically a plant or mushroom, that helps the body adapt to and cope with various stressors, both physical and mental. These stressors may include environmental, emotional, or physiological factors. Adaptogens are known for their ability to modulate the body's stress response system, promoting balance and homeostasis.
Adaptogens work by supporting the body's adrenal glands, which play a crucial role in managing the stress response. They help regulate the production of stress hormones like cortisol, ensuring that they are released in appropriate amounts when needed. Adaptogens also help normalize physiological functions, enhancing the body's resilience to stress and promoting overall well-being.
Hundreds of millions of years worth of evolution shaped the world around us and created many incredible things. But nothing in nature exists without serving a purpose. Here at CURA we look to nature for inspiration by studying symbiotic relationships that fungi, plants and humans share. We emulate the models and systems nature has been working on for millions of years and put it into an extract. Both plants and fungi have medicinal compounds that humans benefit from. That is why we believe combining them creates a synergy which produces a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects individually.
Since the inception of CURA we’ve implemented sustainable practices in every facet of the business. Our priority is to share the powerful healing benefits mushrooms contain, while doing so in the most sustainable way possible. We are constantly learning and improving our packaging to be as sustainable as we can. We opt for recycled, reusable, and lightweight material whenever possible. The packages we use for shipping products are 100% biodegradable. That’s right - you can throw the box, the honeycomb wrapping paper and the shipping label right in your garden if you wanted! Also, all of our extracts are sold in glass so you can be sure to recycle them!
Extracts are made by soaking mushrooms or plant material in a solvent (alcohol and/or water). We use a double extraction method for all of our mushrooms. This separates the desired compounds from the fungi and herbs, leaving you with a concentrated liquid
Everybody may benefit from some support but it is always advised to consult with your physician. We do not recommend for children under 8, or anyone who is pregnant / breastfeeding.
You can drop the liquid extract directly under the tongue, but it is recommended to add it to your favorite coffee, tea, smoothie, water, soup, sauce, or really any liquid you like.
Take each supplement up to 2 dropperfuls 1-2 times per day. Can be taken with food or without, on an empty or full stomach.
This is slightly different for everybody, depending on whether your body is familiar with adaptogens and medicinal herbs or not. As a general rule with many supplements, your body will take 3 weeks - 1 month to naturally adapt. We ask that you wait this long to see the transformative effects.
Our extracts have a long shelf-life and can be stored either at room temperature or in the refrigerator to further increase longevity. Keeping the extract out of the sun is important as this will degrade the product.
Unfortunately for health and safety reasons, we do not offer refunds or returns on any items that are open. If a bottle breaks in transit or somehow you receive a defective product, we are happy to send out a replacement or refund you for the full cost of the product within 30 days.
