Reishi – Ling Zhi - Yeong Ji - Yung Gee - Linh Chi

Revered by emperors and sages alike, and associated in oriental culture with happiness, health and good fortune, Reishi’s extensive health benefits have led to it being known as the ‘Mushroom of Immortality’ or ‘10,000 Year Mushroom’ (Mannentake).



Although primarily cultivated in China and east Asia, Reishi species grow widely throughout Europe and North America, with the original description of Ganoderma lucidum being based on material collected in London in 1781, 21 years after Duncan Napier opened the first Napiers.

Reishi has traditionally been associated with the Taoist quest for immortality, as well as being used as a supplement to support the immune, cardiac and respiratory systems. 

Directions

One to three capsules per day or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Health benefits can be obtained from up to 5 grams per day. Long-term supplementation is typically 1 to 3 grams per day.

Ingredients

400mg vegetarian capsules or 250 gram tub of powder

Combination of concentrated hot water and ethanolic extracts – minimum 30% polysaccharides and 3% triterpenes (ganoderic and lucidenic acids)

Together with high levels of polysaccharides, Reishi contains over 100 triterpenoid compounds (gonoderic and lucidenic acids) found predominantly in the fruiting body. Although Reishi is traditionally made into a tea (hot-water extract) these triterpenes are only poorly water soluble. However, they are highly soluble in ethanol (alcohol) and so 

MycoNutri Reishi combines hot-water (polysaccharide rich) and ethanolic extracts of log-grown (Duan Wood) Ganoderma lucidum to deliver high levels of both polysaccharides and triterpenes.
