First introduced by HorsesDaily.com and DressageDaily.com this winter, the Mushroom Matrix is gaining in popularity among high performance riders and trainers in many equestrian disciplines, particularly in dressage and show jumping. And it’s taking the racing industry by storm. Street Sense, this year’s Kentucky Derby winner, eats a daily dose of mushrooms and so too do a number of winning horses on both coasts of the U.S., among them Tiago, recent winner of the pretigious Swaps Breeders’ Cup at California’s Hollywood Park.
The East Coast launch of this fabulous nutritional supplement took place during the DressageDaily.com Derby Inspection Reception at the prestigious Palm Beach Dressage Derby in March. Among dressage riders and trainers using it on their horses are Jane Hannigan, who feeds it to her Grand Prix horse, Maksymillian, and Scott and Susanne Hassler of Hassler Dressage. Scott is the U.S. Equestrian Federation’s Young Horse Coach.

The Mushroom Matrix is a special blend of mushroom varieties that are grown organically in the U.S. by San Marcos, California-based Golden Gourmet Mushrooms. The varieties used are carefully chosen for their tremendous nutritional benefits. To produce the Mushroom Matrix, these special mushrooms are dehydrated and then ground into powder form. They contain no chemicals and no drugs and no horse on the product has ever tested positive in any drug test, including tests administered by the International Equestrian Federation.
The Mushroom Matrix is the result of decades of research into the nutritional benefits of mushrooms, of which there are an estimated 43,000 varieties. The leader behind its development is Dr. Marvin Hausman, a highly-respected physician and medical scientist with more than 30 years experience in medical research. Although much of Dr. Hausman’s research into the health benefits of mushrooms has focused on humans, his interest in using mushrooms as a nutritional benefit for horses stems partly from the fact that his wife, Deborah, is an accomplished dressage rider and trainer.
Unlike many other nutritional supplements, the Mushroom Matrix provides multiple health benefits to horses, as well as to humans and small animals. It promotes healthy joints, reduces inflammation, boosts the immune system, increases stamina, reduces stress and anxiety and greatly increases the recovery time after exercise. It’s also showing much promise in helping to increase fertility, which is of great benefit to the horse breeding industry.
What makes the Mushroom Matrix so beneficial is its high level of antioxidants. Research has shown that mushrooms contain an antioxidant called L-Ergothioneine (ERGO). ERGO is a far more powerful antioxidant than that found in other substances such as beta-carotene and vitamins C and E. One unit of the ERGO antioxidant is equal to 7,000 units of the antioxidant Trolox (water soluble vitamin E.) Antioxidants are the body’s defense system and aid in the prevention of cellular damage – damage that contributes to aging, injury, joint dysfunction, cancer and many other diseases. An additional benefit discovered through research is that humans and animals both have a unique specific “transport” system that easily moves ERGO around the body to where it’s needed. And unlike antioxidants such as vitamins C and E, unused ERGO is stored by the body for quick use rather than flushed as waste.
