Reishi Mushroom History & Uses
The Reishi mushroom has been held in high esteem throughout China for thousands of years and is a staple in traditional eastern medicine. For decades, Scientists have studied the positive effects of the Reishi mushroom, such as its ability to boost immune cells, fight fatigue and depression, among other attributes. Currently, this mushroom most commonly cultivated using wooden logs in shade houses, and it thrives in hot, humid areas throughout the Asian region.
This particular extract is processed by hot water extraction into a fine powder, which perfectly blends with beverages. Unfortunately, most lab-grown mushroom extracts possess low levels of beta-glucan, undetectable levels of triterpenoids and very high levels of starch. However, our reishi mushrooms are grown and cultivated deep in the mountains of China by certified organic growers. Additionally, to ensure it’s quality and effectiveness, our extract is rigorously tested for active compounds.
