For over 2000 years, Red Reishi (Lingzhi) has been consumed in China, Japan and Korea and is revered in Asia as the “mushroom of immortality”, the “herb of spiritual potency and radiant health”, the “herb of good fortune” or the “holy mushroom”. Once reserved to royalty, high quality Red Reishi is now widely available thanks to modern growing techniques.
Red Reishi is now one of the most scientifically researched herbs in the world.
In traditional Chinese medicine, Ganoderma Lucidum is considered a Jing, Qi and Shen tonic acting on the Heart, Liver, Lungs and Kidney organ systems.
Ganoderma Lucidum is rich in polysaccharides (including beta-glucans), triterpenes (including ganoderic acids), some B vitamins and trace elements like germanium.
How to take Reishi Essence
Reishi is mild (extremely safe/non toxic and non addictive) but effective and powerful. The effects of taking Reishi, like all tonic herbs, are cumulative. Reishi is meant to be taken every day consistently and over the long term.
50% Red Reishi spores + 50% Red Reishi Extract Organically Cultivated.
The authentic tonic herb: Red Reishi fruit body extract vs powder or mycelium.
The powder of the Red Reishi fruit body (the visible part of the mushroom above ground) as well as Red Reishi mycelium (the underground mushroom matrix) are widely sold in the Western world and labeled as Red Reishi/Ganoderman Lucidum. However, tonic herbalism never intended Reishi to be consumed in such a form. The tonic herb Red Reishi known as “the mushroom of immortality” is meant to be the fruit body and is ordered to be taken as an extract – exclusively. Non extracted Reishi is not digestible by humans.
Reishi spores: the quintessence of Reishi
The most precious part of the Reishi mushroom is its spores which are released once the Reishi fruit body is ripe. The spores concentrate the bioactive components of Reishi like polysaccharides and triterpenes and possess a very high curative power. Reishi spores constitute 0.1% of the Reishi fruit body. Reishi spores has very hard shells and need to be broken so the active constituents can be made bioavailable. The spores in Reishi Essence have been gentle cracked at a rate of over 98%.
Highest in bioactive compounds
Reishi Essence is the leading edge Reishi product on the market today. The Reishi used in this formula is cultivated according to a revolutionary and ecologically sound technology where the mushrooms grow on a substrate of nutrient rich, organic tonic herbs. The result is a Reishi mushroom that is exceptionally high in bioactive components as well as free from contaminants.
American and Chinese studies have established that our Reishi contains significantly more active ingredients than conventionally cultivated Reishi and even more than wild Reishi while demonstrating the same medicinal properties. For example the triterpene content of the spores has been found to be about 6 times higher than in conventionally grown or wild Red Reishi.
