The reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum), an edible type of fungus that has been used for thousands of years, is a true “super food.” Also known as Ling Zhi in Chinese, they’ve adopted the nickname “king of mushrooms.”
As described in the book “Herbal Medicine: Biomolecular and Clinical Aspects,” in Chinese the name for the reishi mushroom represents “a combination of spiritual potency and essence of immortality … it’s tied to success, well-being, divine power, and longevity. Among cultivated mushrooms, G. lucidum is unique in that its pharmaceutical rather than nutritional value is paramount.”
Throughout history in holistic medicine practices, including Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), reishi mushrooms have been considered to be adaptogen herb-like substances.
For most of history, in Traditional Chinese Medicine fully grown reishi mushroom was dried, cut into slices, boiled in hot water and then steeped to make a healing tea/soup. Today, manufacturers of reishi products use a processing technique where reishi is boiled multiple times at a high pressure, allowing the active ingredients to be extracted to form a tincture.
Over the past several decades, dozens of different studies have been conducted in Japan, China, the U.S. and the U.K. , which we are not allowed to mention or share with you.

*Be aware that 75% of mushroom products out there are either radiated, which kill off most betaglucans, or are not the true Ganoderma lucidum.
* OUR MUSHROOMS ARE ACTIVATED. All of our mushroom powders have gone through a steam process to make the cell walls break down and enhance the bioavailability of the constituents. This term is referred to as “activation” or “steam extraction”.
