  • Adaptogen; helping the body adapt to stress, allowing for an increased tolerance to mental exhaustion, enhancing attention and mental endurance.
    Immunomodulator; strengthening, balancing, supporting and regulating the immune system, optimising immune response.

    In addition to Jelly Fungus, Tremella is also known as Silver Ear, Snow Fungus, Yellow Brain, and Witches Butter, used traditionally within Chinese Medicine as a key anti-aging product, in addition to helping treat dry coughs and asthma, supporting lung health, perfect for individuals in dry atmospheres or environments with poor air quality. It has also been used as a nutritive tonic for time of debility and exhaustion, improving energy levels after periods of weakness, such as; child birth, gastro, menstruation (of the abnormal variety) and constipation.

    Tremella contains potent anti-oxidants, namely polysaccharides, one of which has been shown to have extraordinary the ability to retain around 500 times its own weight in water, giving rise to the name “Beauty Fungus”. Hyauronic Acid has the ability to retain 1000 times its own weight, but its particles are bigger, and research has found that due to the small sized particles of Tremella it actually outperforms hyaluronic acid and glycerin, 2 expensive and commonly used ingredients in hydrating and rejuvenating beauty creams (hyaluronic acid $5 per gram).

    The additional benefit that Tremella offers regarding beauty, are when its applied topically, the Polyaccharides have been shown to prevent the formation of melanin in the skin - having a lightening effect. Topical use has also been shown to have the ability to promote collagen production and increase levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD) (an anti-oxidant enzyme that naturally occurs in the skin (dermis and epidermis) protecting it from free radicals). By helping to increase SOD levels in the skin, Tremella is able to help provide an anti-inflammatory, protective and regenerative effect.

    Tremella has also been shown to support nerve and brain health, improving memory and learning. Our Tremella has been water extracted as there are no elements that require alcohol extraction to be bioavailable, everything you need to have access to all the compounds for optimal health.

  • As with many things internet based, a lot of information is copied and pasted, has a dash of creative license, a sprinkling of Chinese whispers and boom you have a new superfood or a superherb. When we select our products we look for the most effective and the very best quality. So we research, then research some more, and provide all of that research here, so that you can make up your own mind.

    HYDRATING & ANTI-OXIDANT (ANTI-AGING)

    
To stay looking younger, it is important to keep the skin hydrated, research has found that when cosmetics had 0.05% Tremella polysaccharides (carboxymethylated polysaccharides) added to them they were more moisturising than those with 0.02% added hyaluronic acid, with a moisture retention rate of 65.7% after 96hours. (3, 9, 10, 11) Overproduction of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) in the skin can cause oxidative stress and DNA damage. Tremella has been suggested to remove 80-87% of the ROS radicals and also have a protective and anti-aging effects on cells. (9, 10, 11) Moreover, when catechin antioxidants (commonly found in matcha) were grafted to the the Polysaccharide anti-oxidant of Tremella, they were found to have a higher radical scavenging effect than the polysaccharides of Tremella alone. (4)

    SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE (SKIN REGENERATION)

    
Various biological activities define ageing, one of which is the decline in our immune function, when our immune system declines many things happen, the most obvious being that we become more susceptible to sickness, but another being that we are more susceptible to inflammation and oxidation, tremella has the ability to increase levels of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) (in organs, skin being one of our bigger organs) which helps provide an anti-aging response by reducing inflammation and oxidation. (2, 3, 11)

    IMMUNE HEALTH

    
New blood cells are generated in the bone marrow though a process called hemopoiesis, (very simply put) if this process or the cells in this process are damaged it can impact proper immune function, oxygenation and removal/transport of waste throughout the body. Tremella has the ability to help prevent the disruption of this process by enhancing cellular immunity. (2)

    BRAIN HEALTH (MEMORY & LEARNING)

    
Tremella has been shown to have the ability to increase the development of neurons within the brain and improve glucose metabolism, energising the brain (“the number of KREB neurons increased by 134%”). (2, 5, 14) In addition, the polysaccharide within Tremella have been shown to have a protective effect against neurotoxicity, with the potential to help against neurodegenerative diseases. (13)

    NERVOUS SYSTEM

    
Tremella was researched for its ability to aid nerve growth and repair in respect of sciatic nerve regeneration, and found to be effective in the ruction of damage and improvement of functionality. (12)

    WHEY AND TREMELLA

    
While it has been stdied that Tremella may enable the improvement of the solubility of Whey Protien Isolate (WPI) and thus shelf stability for ‘grab and go’ beverages, it may also slow the digestion of WPI in the gut when consumed with out Tremella. (8)

    ANTI-INFLAMMATORY and ANTI-OXIDANT

    
The polysaccharides extracted from Tremella have been show to help reduce inflammation and oxidation across multiple biological inflammatory responses. (11)

    GUT HEALTH

    
Polysaccharides have been researched for their effect on Gut Health and shown to help against leaky gut, improve immune health and create an environment which lowers the risk of tumours. (15)

CHINESE MEDICINE

The Grove principles and philosophies are very much aligned with those of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The Chinese tonic herbalist is proactive in their approach to health, rather than treating disease, they carve a path to promote “radiant health” or “health beyond danger”. There is a similar Benjamin Franklin quote "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". Prevention is cure is something we believe too.



Those who take medicine and neglect their diet waste the skill of the physician — Chinese Proverb

    LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!

    Absolutely love the Tremella. I wasn’t convinced at the start, so I contacted the ever helpful team at The Grove and asked them what the results would be and timings etc. They recommend that 3 months was a good timeframe. I had bought a 100g bag so stuck with it. After about 7weeks of taking a 1/4tsp a day, I noticed that the skin on my arms was smoother and softer. It’s quite extraordinary. I cannot explain it. Im 65 and my complexion is starting to improve too. It’s definitely staying on my daily routine!! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!

    Perfection

    The Grove Mushrooms powders are the best I have found and I have tried A LOT! The more I use their products the better the results. Medicinal mushrooms are quite literally the best anti-stress and nourishing product you can use. After taking it I can instantly see results, i’m calmer and more relaxed. Love them all and recommend the grove.

    Definitely help hydration and complexion!

    WOW! I read all the science and wanted to give Tremella a go and see for myself, after all 100g for 3 months is a small commitment. I vigilantly put it in my coffee every morning and after 2 months I started to see the skin on my hands and arms become more I guess radiant, younger, smoother. I cannot rave about this product enough, I will take it forever. It’s my favourite product from The Grove and I recommend it to EVERYONE - best beauty buy EVER!! x

    Medicinal Mushrooms are the best and Tremella is one of them

    Tremella is my new found favourite medicinal mushroom. The Grove sent out a newsletter and I had to give this little beaut a go. I have and I have to say im more than impressed with the hydrating benefits and effects on the skin. I used it as a facemask and felt great afterwards. Its a bit of an expensive luxury a facemask, but I will continue to use it in my drinks and report back.

    Definitely the beauty muchroom

    So good. I suffered from skin conditions (Eczema and Psoriasis). Although not entirely gone, Tremella has been a god send. Its definitely improving and i also feel like my mood has improved (probably because my condition has improved), but it all contributes. I cannot recommend this enough. It worked wonders for me. thank you x
