Forest Folk Fungi

Purple Mountain Priest

The Intention

Dark purple, antioxidant-rich mulberries, blueberries, and aronia berries unite with lion’s mane mushroom dual extract for a sweet, juicy daily dose of nutritive, supportive and restorative goodness.

Lion’s mane mushroom, also called Mountain Priest, is an extraordinarily beautiful (its bright white delicate spines hang like a cascading waterfall on the trunks of trees) fungal ally that, as studies have shown, can improve cognitive function, mental clarity, and focus. Its blessings also travel the pathway of the vagus nerve, lighting up our gut-brain connection; and since so much of our neurobiology lives in our gut, when we strengthen our mucosal immunity, our mood and emotional balance may be restored.  

All Forest Folk Fungi offerings are prepared using a proprietary double extraction process and made in cooperation with foraged and organically-grown fungi and plants, and all wildcrafting is done with deep respect for fungal friends in the mountains of southern Appalachia.

The Forest Folk Fungi Story

Forest Folk Fungi is a medicinal mushroom apothecary located in the foothills of Appalachia. Founded in 2015 by Ali and Joe Banks, who are cultivators, medicine makers, and gardeners, Forest Folk offerings are created by honoring strict wildcrafting practices that value ecosystems over profit. Ali and Joe believe deeply in reciprocity with nature; in operating in a way that reveals deep reverence for Mother Earth. Like gathering only what they need and have the capacity to process and no more, choosing mature specimens that have already sporulated abundantly, carring mesh foraging bags to aid in spore dispersal, and deferring to the wisdom and wishes of the indigenous. They create - and live - in phenomenal integrity. Always asking how they can deepen their expression of respect for the forest. How they can deepen their integrity in all they create.
