Most lab-grown Reishi is mycelium grown on grain. Analysis has shown that this Reishi mycelium on grain has low levels of beta-glucan, undetectable levels of triterpenoids and very high levels of starch. Mushrooms grown on natural substrates have the precursors to produce important secondary metabolites such as triterpenoids whereas mycelium produced on cereal grains lack these precursors. Our product is 100% organic fruiting bodies which are rigorously tested and guaranteed for active compounds. 

About the Ingredients

REISHI (Ganoderma lucidum

Reishi is one of the most highly regarded herbal remedies in Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been used for over 2000 years. It is known as the the “Mushroom of Immortality", or the “Spirit Plant”. 

Physiologically, Reishi has an immense number of uses. Its herbal actions include: adaptogen (supports the body to adapt to stress and exert a balancing effect upon bodily processes), nervine (calms, tonifies the nerves / nervous system), immune modulator, hepatoprotective (protects and cleanses the liver), cardiotonic (strengthens the heart and cardiovascular system), anti-allergy, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral. 

Psycho-spiritually, Reishi is a metabolizer of experiences. It support us to integrate our experiences while being held by the wisdom and stillness of the ancient forests where it’s found. In TCM, Reishi is used to nourish the Shen (the energy related to the heart that influences the mind, consciousness, and emotional balance). Reishi is supportive for bringing balance to any disturbance of the Shen (anxiety, insomnia, nightmares, mood disturbances and poor memory).
