Functional fungi

We are nature.

Forest was formed with a shared vision – to embrace the magic and mystery of medicinal plants.

Following the new paradigm shift toward functional sustenance, we developed a set of supplements defined by scientific analysis.

We wanted our mushrooms to be cultivated and naturally farm grown by real people yet verified by scientific partners who have set the industry standard in active compound study.

We are dedicated to providing you with organically certified mushroom extracts that are safe and highly effective.


We are committed to an ecological balance.

By conserving natural resources throughout our process, we support the well-being of current and future generations.

From packaging made with renewable fiber from sustainably managed forests to responsibly grown ingredients, we respect that the forests are our friends
