Teelixir Consciously Sources The Best Sustainable, Certified Organic and Wildcrafted Adaptogens For You
Teelixir products are created and shared with love and integrity.
We do not compromise our values to source only the highest quality ingredients available. All of our raw herbal material is extracted using clean water (dual-extracts are water and organic alcohol) and contain NO fillers, excipients or any GMO derived ingredients.
Teelixir herbs are sourced organically whenever possible or are from wildcrafted herb collectors. If organic certification or wildcrafted material is not possible, we source our material only from suppliers that do not use any sort of synthetic chemicals (insecticides, herbicides, larvicides, miticides, synthetic / petroleum-based fertilizer, etc) during their cultivation and harvesting processes.
We are dedicated to seeking out the world’s cleanest, and highest grade herbal ingredients. We do not compromise our values to source only the most effective tonic herbal products.
All of our tonic herbs, mushrooms, and adaptogens are sustainably wild-harvested, with respect to, and abiding by the fundamental concept of "Di Tao” sourcing in Chinese herbalism. Di Tao means “Earth Tao” or in Chinese, “authentic source.” All of our herbal ingredients come directly from their original growing source, the pristine high mountain ranges, far from any cities or industrial pollution.
Many of our herbs are wildcrafted directly from the forest, and many are "wild cultivated". Wild cultivated herbs are grown from seed, then placed into a natural environment (a mountain forest or a desert, for example) and allowed to grow naturally without human interference.
The wild cultivation process simulates the wild herbs growing conditions where the herb can accumulate food and energy naturally. This method produces mushrooms and tonic herbs with a chemical profile closely similar to the wild material and is often better than the organically cultivated varieties.
Not all superfood mushroom products are created equal.
There are a number of very important factors we take into consideration when sourcing, extracting and working with superfood mushrooms to ensure we supply the highest quality and nutritionally potent herbal ingredients for all our blends and products.
Unfortunately, there are many poorly produced superfood mushroom products in the marketplace. It is important to know what you are purchasing, and to ask intelligent questions like - Is the product made from mushrooms or mycelium?
Many lab-grown superfood mushrooms are mycelium grown on grain. Analysis has shown that mycelium on grain has low levels of beta-glucans, undetectable levels of triterpenoids and very high levels of starch.
Superfood mushroom products that are mycelium grown on grain produce nominal amounts of the important bio-active compounds that are in superfood mushrooms. Teelixir only uses the fruiting bodies of organically cultivated superfood mushrooms which are rigorously tested and guaranteed for active compounds.
Teelixir tonic herbs, mushrooms, and adaptogens are extracted using natural and clean water from the pristine mountain ranges where the herbs grow naturally.
The exception is with our dual-extract products such as Chaga mushroom, Reishi mushroom, Astragalus root, and others. These herbs undergo a process of dual-extraction using water and organic ethanol.
Organic ethanol is used to extract the adaptogenic terpenes while the hot water extracts the immune-modulating beta-glucans. This is to ensure that we extract the full-spectrum of the herbs beneficial compounds, both the water soluble and oil soluble constituents of the raw herbal material.
This process increases the bio-availability and produces a far greater nutritionally potent product.
Chemically Free and Non-GMO
All Teelixir herbs are grown using organic cultivation methods, in pristine regions without the use of harmful chemicals, chemical fertilisers, or any form of genetic engineering. All of our raw herbal material is extracted using water only (dual-extracts use water and organic alcohol) and contains NO fillers, excipients, additives or any other GMO derived nasty ingredients.
We guarantee that all the herbal material Teelixir sources enter into Australia in their purest form, in a completely non-irradiated state.
The Australian importation regulations can be strict, but we have secured means by which we can ensure all the herbs from Teelixir have not been processed in any harmful ways that could damage the nutrition or chemical profile of the herbal material. We wouldn’t accept them any other way!
We use the strict heavy metals guideline of the Low Heavy Metals Verified Organisation as a benchmark to test our products. It’s our commitment to proving that Teelixir products are from the purest, cleanest and most natural sources in the world, and are guaranteed safe to consume. If it’s not safe for us and our families to take, we do not sell it! That’s the bottom line.
We want you to always be aware of where your food comes from. If you have any questions regarding the origins of our foods please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
