Reishi Mushrooms have been recognized by Chinese medical professionals as a precious remedial supplement for thousands of years. Our product is carefully made from mycelia and wall-broken spores, and is rich in polysaccharides, triterpenoids, polypeptides and trace elements.
Our Ganoderma lucidum is rich in polysaccharides, triterpenoids, polypeptides, peptidoglycan, nucleotides, ganoderic acids, and trace elements that are readily absorbed by the body. Our cultured strains of Ganoderma lucidum have a 99.4% similarity in rDNA sequence with the wild-type Ganoderma, as confirmed through NCBI’s global genome database, GenBank. Our Ganoderma mycelia are grown in a water-soluble medium that does not leave any residues. Our product is 100% pure, 100% mushroom and harvested from both the mycelia and fruiting bodies.

Aside from strain authenticity, the other key to cultivating any biologically active mushroom is “Geographical Authenticity”, since only natural micro-habitat conditions can give each mushroom its unique biomedical features. Ganoderma is found in the humid coastal villages of China and Japan, growing in shaded, rotting logs or trunks of the chestnut, oak or plum trees. Because of its specific growing requirements, Ganoderma lucidum is extremely rare in the wild and requires the right combination of humidity and oxygen levels to thrive. Our Ganoderma strains are cultured in exact lighting and temperature conditions, with micro-clustered water containing nutrients and trace elements that nourishes each mushroom’s unique properties. These processes are performed in controlled environments that replicate Ganoderma's natural habitat.

Cholesterol supplement reishi sporesWhat's different about Ganoderma is that many of its medicinal properties are trapped within the spore's chitin shell. Chitin is usually difficult for our digestive systems to break down. We use modern bio-fermentation and cell-rupturing processes to break down these chitin walls at a 99.5% success rate to release each spore's medicinal value. Additionally, our mushroom extracts are uniquely enriched with our signature 76 specific nano-sized trace elements mandatory to good health.

Ganoderma lucidum has been recognized as a precious health supplement for more than 2,000 years. immunity supplement reishi ganodermaThe Ancient Chinese Pharmacopoeia claims that it is one of the few truly “superior” medicinal agents that can strengthen and augment the body’s well-being.

heart supplement reishi ganodermaKnown as the Reishi mushroom in Japan, it was used to boost immunity, raise energy levels, alleviate inflammation, and improve liver function. Ancient Chinese texts reveal that the mushroom was also used to enhance vitality and prevent memory loss. The mushroom has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to treat fatigue, diabetes, high cholesterol, hepatitis, blood clots and tumor growth.

Today, the mushroom is revealed to possess antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulating, and anti-tumor properties. Research on Ganoderma lucidum has included findings that suggest its ability to lower cholesterol levels, repair liver damage from hepatitis, and promote sleep.

Many of Ganoderma lucidum's healing properties can be attributed to its unique blend of polysaccharides and trace elements.
