We take pride in making potent extractions using a proprietary process that Hernan designed himself with his chemistry background and research.We do not use fillers or myceliated rice! Hernan has spent the least 6 years studying mycology and researching Medicinal Mushrooms. 

Hernan's interest in nature, botany,and mycology continues and the results are found in the company Desert Alchemist. The company was founded because of his desire to find a natural way to support the health of his father. He started researching the medicinal properties of mushrooms and herbs, which led him to create an extract that would support his nervous system. He began taking the extract and after four months both noticed a distinct improvement to his fathers health. Fast forward to today, and Desert Alchemist offers a variety of mushrooms and herbal extract that contain natural support for a variety of systems and overall health. Hernan continues to research and improve myco-floral proprietary blends for his company, so others can experience what nature provides!
