The reishi mushroom (Ganoderma Lucidum) is one of the most revered herbs in traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine, with a documented history of over 2000 years. Known as Ling Zhi in China, there are references to its use as far back as 100 B.C. where it was referred to as the 'Herb of Spiritual Potency' and the 'Ten-Thousand-Year Mushroom'.



Ganoderma Lucidum is one of the most highly regarded medicinal supplements and is probably the best choice when looking for a general health tonic to improve overall health and increase longevity. Modern clinical research also supports many of the uses for this mushroom as described in traditional medicine. It benefits immune health, cardiovascular health, and liver function. Because of its superior oxygenation properties, Ganoderma Lucidum is also frequently used by mountain climbers to combat altitude sickness and is contained in many of the performance-enhacing herbal formulas used by Chinese athletes.

Research has demonstrated that Ganoderma Lucidum has several different active constituents. One group of active constituents is the polysaccharides. The various types of polysaccharides found in Ganoderma Lucidum have demonstrated immune-enhancing properties. This includes enhancement of several important interleukins. Another major class of compounds is the triterpenes. These compounds have been reported to have adaptogenic, anti-hypertensive, and anti-allergy effects.

Ganoderma lucidum -- Also refered to as Red Reishi, is one of the most widely researched supplements in Asia, with most of the research centering on three actions: hepatic support, immune modulation and cardiovascular support.

Called the mushroom of immortality in ancient China, Reishi is the most revered herb in all of Classical Chinese and Japanese medicine. Used daily as a tonic in ancient China and Japan, modern research has focused on the use of Reishi extracts for immune support and supporting liver health.*

Reishi mushroom extracts are frequently used by mountain climbers to prevent altitude sickness and are contained in many of the performance enhancing herbal formulas used by Chinese athletes.*

Our Reishi Super Strength extract is the most potent Reishi supplement available in North America, and we take a number of steps to ensure this is the case.

The first step use to use the fruit bodies, not the mycelium. Reishi mycelium does not contain any triterpenes. Only the mushroom contains triterpenes which is why we use the mushrooms to make our extract.

Because the levels of active compounds in Reishi mushrooms can vary significantly from strain to strain within the species, the scientists and herbalists at Mushroom Science developed a proprietary strain of Reishi that delivers significant and consistent levels of all the active compounds, including the triterpenes that support liver health.*

Our organic Reishi mushrooms are also grown on solid wood, not rice. Growing Reishi mushrooms in their natural environment allows us to produce an extract of unmatched quality."

Mushroom Science also uses a two-step extraction process; first hot water extraction to extract the polysaccharides that contain the beta glucans, and then a second step using ethanol (alcohol) and hot water together to extract the triterpenes, guaranteeing that we capture all the active compounds needed to deliver the health benefits Reishi is famous for. The presence of triterpenes in the final extract is essential to delivering the health benefits reported in Traditional Chinese Medicine and in the published research.

This very difficult extraction process we use, which is absolutely essential when making a therapeutically effective extract, may be why MushroomScience is the only mushroom company in North America that lists guaranteed levels of active compounds on the label of every mushroom supplement we sell. Given that the scientific community has been testing for the triterpenes and polysaccharides in Reishi extracts for a number of decades, and that there are two test methods for measuring polysaccharide levels published in the research, it is curious that other mushroom companies refuse to list the levels of active compounds on the labels of their Reishi supplements.




Only Hot Water Extracts Are:

100% Used in Traditional Herbalism
100% Used in The Clinical Research
Proven Effective for Therapeutic Use


There are thousands of studies proving the effectiveness of hot water extracts (liquid and dehydrated). Yet to date our research has not located any independent studies verifying the effectiveness of mycelium bio-mass, un-extracted mushrooms, or alcohol tinctures (hydro-alcohol "extracts"). Only hot water extracts have the clinical studies and history to validate the proven health benefits.     ---   Which extraction method would you bet your health on?


Why IS Hot Water Extraction So Important?


Mushrooms are unique, stationary like a plant, yet built from chitin, the same indigestible fiber that forms the shell of a lobster. Understanding the properties of chitin is critical to understanding how to choose an effective, high-quality medicinal mushroom product.

Chitin is indigestible by humans. Yet chitin, which makes up the cell walls of mushrooms and mushroom mycelium, contains the potent immune stimulating compounds common to all medicinal mushrooms, the polysaccharides. Practitioners of Traditional East Asian Medicine and modern clinical researchers both use the same preparation technique to overcome this barrier, hot water.

Only a heated liquid solution can break down the indigestible chitin and release the active compounds into a concentrated, bio-available form. When used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for chronic conditions or immune health medicinal mushrooms are always prepared with heat and water, as a tea or a decoction. Medicinal mushrooms are never used in the un-extracted form (as mycelium bio-mass powder or dried mushroom powder), and rarely prepared as a tincture (soaked in alcohol and water in the absence of heat).

Scientific research backs this traditional preparation method. Every published, independent study on the use of medicinal mushrooms for immune health has been conducted with a hot water or hot water/alcohol extract. Every form of extraction, including precipitation with alcohol, requires a heated liquid solution to first release the polysaccharides, the primary active compounds, from the chitinous cell walls of the mushroom and mushroom mycelium.

According to the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia, mycelium bio-mass products are inferior because of a "lack of bio-availability." This publication also states that concentrates derived through hot water extraction contain levels of active compounds that are "magnitudes higher than what is available in crude mycelium biomass preparations."

We take these lessons seriously. Our dehydrated hot water extracts are strictly formulated to deliver all of the important constituents unique to each mushroom. Every batch is analyzed for purity, contains guaranteed levels of the active compounds, and is offered as a pure extract, containing no mycelium bio-mass or ground mushrooms as filler.
