What is Reishi Mushroom?
The Reishi mushroom, scientifically known as the Ganoderma lucidum, is a fungus native to Asia. These fungi are normally amber-brown in colour and commonly grow on hardwood trees.
As they reach maturity, Reishi mushrooms release spores. And these spores are the Reishi mushroom’s most prized possession – it’s the most concentrated form of Reishi mushroom.
With a large variety of nutritional benefits packed into the spores of the Reishi, it’s no wonder it has become a reliable remedy that’s widely used in Eastern medicine. Reishi is so highly revered in China that it earned the nickname “Elixir of Immortality.”
Historical Use of Reishi Mushroom
The first mentions of the Reishi mushroom dates back to the Han Dynasty, around 2000 years ago. It was mentioned in Chinese texts about traditional medicine.
Reishi was once described as a herbal medicine with therapeutic qualities and anti-aging properties that can also boost one’s vital energy and enhance one’s memory capacity.
Benefits of Reishi mushroom
Supports your immune system
Reishi mushroom contains immunity booster compounds like proteins, triterpenoids, and polysaccharides like beta-d-glucans. These compounds increase the activation of immune cells to create a more effective immune response to diseases.
Aids in relieving stress
As an adaptogen, Reishi can help in aiding the body in stabilizing physiological processes that are linked to stress. Adaptogens also support neurological and immune systems in creating a better stress response.
How to use it
There are many ways to enjoy your Reishi. You can either brew your Reishi coffee together with other super mushrooms using our very own Espresso Coffee Mushroom Elixir which contains Siberian Chaga, cordyceps, maitake, shiitake, lion’s mane, and of course, Reishi.
But if you want to savour Reishi mushroom alone, you can simply add it to hot water, mylk, or regular brewed coffee to enhance taste and make these beverages healthier.
Different Forms of Reishi Mushroom
Before you make the most of our Reishi mushrooms, they undergo the dual alcohol and triple water extraction method first. This method makes the semi-wild harvested mushrooms into highly digestible Reishi Mushroom Extract.
This way, you can easily mix the powdered extract into any recipe you are fixing in your kitchen!
Soft gels are another form of a capsule. Instead of powders and hard shells, soft gels are made of oil extracted from Reishi mushroom spores. Each Reishi Mushroom Spore Oil Softgel contains 500mg of Reishi mushroom goodness that you can take 1-3 times a day.
Tinctures on the other hand are pure Reishi spore oil extracted from the Reishi mushrooms grown organically in the mountains of China. One thousand kilograms of dried Reishi are processed in a certified facility to produce our very own Organic Reishi Mushroom Spore Oil.
