These mushroom extracts have long been prized by Asian cultures, and Reishi Mushroom is perhaps the most beloved of them all. Once extremely rare and precious, Reishi mushrooms were reserved for royalty and their inner circles. It is now cultivated with superb results which means that more people than ever people can experience consuming Reishi. Traditionally Reishi is considered to nourish all 3 treasures, Jing, Chi and Shen.


Reishi is the most studied natural substance on earth and science continues to show up remarkable functions its active ingredients produce, although under EU law we are forbidden from sharing any of this wonderful research with you.


Our Reishi mushrooms are extracted only from the fruiting bodies. They are grown organically on real linden logs which is the natural growing substrate for Reishi.


Mushroom extracts are powerful in action and strong in flavour. A daily recommended dose is just 1g, hence a 50g packet will provide around a 2 month supply.


Reishi is relatively new to us in the UK, and to the majority of people it is still unheard of. But in actual fact, it has been used in the countries it originates from for thousands of years, and is still in common use today. At Raw Living, it is our wish to introduce to you a whole world of plants that feed the body in the truest sense. It is only in very recent times that we consume food that is so denatured. On our site, you can find many ways to incorporate these wonderful foods into your diet, making your entire culinary experience so much more interesting, and most importantly, helping you connect to you super powers.

Further Information

Want to learn more about reishi? Listen to the interview Kate did with expert Brandon Gilbert of Hyperion Herbs, where he goes into the history of this most amazing plant. For over 3,000 years Reishi has been the most sought after substance in nature by mountain sages and by the emperors and empresses of the east. The first Chinese herbal text (Shennong's Pharmacopeia) written about 2400 years ago said that "continuous consumption of Reishi turns you into one like the immortal who never dies," hence it was known as the mushroom of immortality.
