1/4 a tsp of shiitake mushroom set off my anxiety levels and some brain fuzziness.

Are these mushrooms that strong?
Possible immune response?
Rattled some bugs?

Assume you are talking about a concentrated powder, not actual mushrooms for a meal?

That's a big dose for a mushroom powder to start out - that would be somewhere around 1,000 mg. maybe more. As it is an immune stimulant, it's likely to be "stimulating" in a variety of ways and it may be too much or the wrong mushroom for YOUR body.

Did you take it with a meal? That is best so it's not so concentrated in your body.

Yes, it's the concentrated powder.
1 tsp = 2g
so I assumed by taking 1/4 a tsp I was in the clear.

I did take on an empty stomach and may choose to do so with food next time.

Thanks

The empty stomach could explain a lot.

I learned the hard way that we are never really "in the clear" when we compare a normal dose for a normal person -- and what something will do for us.

Rather than a 1/4 tsp, you might start with 1/8 -in the middle of a meal - even sprinkle onto your food. Likely, this will be much better.

I assume this does not contain anything else and it's from a reputable source. I know you are careful with all that but sometimes additives or fillers can sneak in if a brand changes its formula.

Some concentrated powders are not just the food or plant, itself, but can also contain dextrose.

Best if the mushrooms contain no fillers.

No fillers - ordered in bulk from Starwest Herbs.

I think I just have a sensitive system.
I'm really hoping to be able to take this (along with Cordyceps) though. They are very specific to my condition.

Buhner recommends Shiitake mushroom powder for "wasting" and muscle/weight loss from disease.

And Cordyceps has strong effects on Mycoplasma according to Buhner as well.
