Reishi Mushroom (Ganoderma Lucidim)

Red Reishi is derived from the reishi mushroom, commonly known as the lingzhi mushroom or Ganoderma lucidum, and is usually found in tropical and temperate climates. It is a popular traditional Chinese remedy known for its ability to greatly boost the immune system as well as reduce stress. The mushroom has been used for its therapeutic properties for over 2000 years.* [1]

Reishi Mushroom Powder: What is it?

Reishi mushroom powder harnesses the many benefits of the reishi mushroom. Like many mushrooms, the lingzhi mushroom is mostly comprised of water; however, it does contain a large number of bioactive compounds including polysaccharides, peptidoglycans, and triterpenes* [1] While no one compound can be singled out as the main beneficial component, all three positively promote the immune system.*

Reishi Mushroom Benefits

The primary benefits of red reishi powder are promoting a healthy immune system and boosting mood; however, this potent mushroom can do much more. One of the primary reasons people take this supplement is for its energy boosting effects as well as its ability to supplement a healthy night's sleep.*

Ganoderma Lucidum as an Cellular Health Supplement

Further adding to its longevity claims, reishi mushroom powder is also a powerful cellular health supplement. The polysaccharide content in particular promotes the protection against free radicals.* [2]
