How It started...

  • Meet Sam:

    At the age of 16, he unearthed research highlighting the power of Lion's Mane mushrooms for enhancing memory and focus. It was when he stumbled upon one scientific paper that everything changed. This paper revealed Lion's Mane's potential for improving Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. This struck a chord with Sam, as his grandfather had recently been diagnosed with Parkinson's.

  • The Problem:

    As Sam searched for mushroom supplements, a problem became very clear. An eye-opening article revealed that 74% of mushroom supplements on the market don't actually contain any mushrooms. Why? Many companies sell what they hope is mushroom powder from China, as it's often left untested.

The Vision

And so, Sam decided to launch Smart Mushrooms. Focused on cultivating and crafting science-backed, high-quality mushroom supplements. To empower everyone to upgrade their health and wellness with more energy, more focus, more calm, and, ultimately, more life.

The Proposition

So Sam proposed to his grandad transforming an unused barn on the family farm into a mushroom farm... He gave Sam a funny look, but thankfully agreed!

How It's Going

Today, Smart Mushrooms has made significant strides. Not only was Sam recognised as the South West Young Entrepreneur of the Year, but Smart Mushrooms was named the New Start-Up of the Year at the Great British Business Awards. Join us as we continue to provide empowering mushroom products and spread mushroom wisdom.

  • BEES

    Roughly 30% of bee hives are lost annually due to deformed wing virus. Research has shown that bees feed off mushroom mycelium to boost their immune systems and extend their life spans. We are currently working on ways to provide these mycelial extracts.
